This weekend I got to feel the sun’s warmth on my face for the first time in what felt like a very long time. The joys of living in Scotland! This moment of sunshine heaven happened as I watched my son’s skiing lesson, and I am not going to lie, I was really disappointed when the hour long lesson finished and I had to move away from my sun drenched seat. So beautiful. I have to admit that I am not normally one to consider using SPF too much in the colder months, possibly because I live in not so sunny/warm/exotic Scotland, however as we are now officially in Spring, bring out the SPF.
One product I like to use for day to day use is the Satin Perfection BB Cream by REN. This cream has a number of plus points on top of it’s SPF 15. It gives a great coverage, which is almost matte at first before becoming more gently luminous. This is not a product for you if you are a “dewy glow” fan. It is subtle and leaves the skin fairly flawless.
Although this now comes in a tube, my BB cream in the older style pump bottle. Good light SPF protection in a light to medium colour for day to day use, although you would want a higher SPF if sitting out in the sun! I do tend to be more medium skin toned and I was worried that in summer this would be too light, however I have seen it adapt to my skin tone well. One of the best things about this product is that it leaves my skin non-oily. I am ready to apply any other make up really quickly and it does not transfer onto my clothes. Pretty Good. £28 for 50ml.
What is your favourite day to day SPF 15? Do you use a BB cream?
