Taking care of your skin all year round is essential and when the brighter weather kicks in, its time to stock-up on sun protection. Choosing a sun cream or gel isn’t as simple as it used to be. A whole new generation of sun care is hitting the market, designed to offer fuller protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Given all the options, how do you know which is the best for you?
For me, there’s a few musts;
- Once-a-day application. We are clearly too busy being fabulous by the pool to have to worry about applying protection throughout the day.
- Water resistant. For the same reason as above.
- Sensitive skin formula. Yes, I’m one of those lucky people who breaks-out in a rash due to certain lotions.
- No perfume. For the same reason as above.
Designed and created by Swiss sun care experts to deliver a unique and revolutionary formulation unlike any other, Ultrasun is already famed for its photostable, once-a-day application sun protection range. Ultrasun’s patented liposome technology ensures just one application a day will give long lasting, high level, water resistant protection from the sun’s UVA (ageing) and UVB (burning) rays. Each Ultrasun product is free from emulsifiers and perfume reducing the risk of allergy, making them especially suitable for children, and those with sensitive skin types. The Ultrasun range is non-greasy, water-resistant and easy to use which makes them ideal for everyone in the family including dads, lads, tots, teenagers and busy mums. Offering protection even while swimming, towel drying and showering, the non-greasy, hypo-allergenic, fragrance free formulations will also help to prevent prickly heat; one 150ml bottle will give protection for one person for up to two weeks.
The Glimmer Formula is wonderfully light and the lotion absorbed quickly into my skin. It didn’t leave any white streaks which I have found with other sun care products. The shimmering glimmer has a sparkle which is slight and not in anyway over the top. It is non-greasy and left my skin feeling well conditioned and most importantly, protected.
Housed in an airless pump dispenser to prevent product deterioration and contamination, this clever sun protection product with its patented Liposome Complex will carry moisture deep into the skin, delivering long lasting protection (UVA 93% and UVB SPF20) with just one application. The groundbreaking formula also contains Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), an enzyme to help reduce free radical activity and tiny golden ‘glimmers’ (MICA) which raise protection by deflecting the sun’s rays also adding an attractive golden glow to the surface of the skin.
The Tinted Face is a light moisturiser. I was at first concerned about it being too dark, but after lightly massaging the moisturiser onto the face and neck it evenly absorbed into the skin. With light reflecting particles I feel confident wearing this tined moisturiser instead of a primer and as you can see the skin is left with an even golden radiance.
The high tech formulation effortlessly glides onto skin and contains light reflecting particles and revolutionary anti-ageing enzyme Ectoin. This fabulous tinted moisturiser also contains Vitamin E to smooth, moisturise and revitalise the skin and Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), an enzyme that effectively neutralises skin damaging free radical activity stimulated by exposure to the sun.
I’m looking forward to using both Ultrasun Glimmer and Ultrasun Tinted Face throughout summer. The added golden glimmer of the lotion really adds glamour to sun protection. The tinted face is perfect for replacing your primer or even foundation on hotter days. It is also ideal to mix both the Glimmer and Tinted Face together should you have tan lines, or like me, your legs tan slower.
Clearly Ultrasun is the answer to my sun protection dilemmas. It is a great way to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays whilst keeping the skin soft and smooth with a golden sparkle. And most importantly reducing the risk of skin cancer and premature skin ageing.
