As we've just started July and we're having a huge heat wave this week in the UK with temperatures reaching 35 degrees in London now is the time to stock up on suncream! When it comes to sun care I always seem to go back to Clarins for both their suncreams for the face and body and their aftersun. Last year I mentioned my love for the Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray, it's probably not for everyone as it's not a dry oil but it provides excellent protection and smells like sweets.
When it comes to using SPF for my face I love the Clarins UV Ultra Sun SPF 50 for day to day use as it's perfect for wearing under make-up. If you like the option of choosing different levels of SPF then I'd recommend trying the Sun Wrinkle Control Cream for the face as it comes in SPF 15, 30 and 50.
For tackling those extra-sensitive areas of the face that are prone to burning like the nose, lips and ears there is the new Sun Control Stick with UVA/UVB protection with SPF 30. I'm going away to Greece at the end of August and I know I will get so much use out of this as I always manage to burn my lips.
For the Aftersun department there is one for the face and body and for the body there is a choice of a gel formula and a moisturiser. I have the Ultra Soothing Gel as I thought this sounded so perfect for the skin after a full day in the sun. For the face the After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care is my product of choice because it's a really light gel to apply but also provides protection against wrinkles and helps to prolong tan.
Finally is the most summer appropriate product I've come across and it's the After Sun Shimmer that contains hazelnut oil which nourishes the skin and golden shimmer particles to add a beautiful golden glow to the skin. This is the perfect product for heading out for dinner in the evening as it not only moisturises your skin but also makes it looks brown and shimmery.
