We've just had our battle of the tans and now it's time for battle of the sun creams! We all know just how important sun cream is to protect our skin from those harmful rays of sun that we love so much and growing up as a pale child (into a pale adult) it was one of those things I never question, much like wearing a seat belt when in the car, I put sun cream on before going out into the sun. I have a few different sun creams to share with you that I will be using while in Spain (and will do a full which I prefer video when I get back) and thought I would give you my first impressions of these guys:
|Ultrasun Medium 20SPF Sensetive Glimmer Formula* "Its tiny, golden “glimmers” raise protection by deflecting the sun’s rays and add an attractive golden glow to the surface of your skin. It is free from oils, emulsifiers and perfume reducing the risk of allergy and making it especially suitable for sensitive skins. Like other ultrasun products, it is non-greasy, water-resistant and easy to use" 100 ml, £18.00 / 150 ml, £23.00. This is a brand that I've heard of before but not used myself. I know it's a really reliable sun protection product and a lot of people who do sports use it. This is a special Glimmer Formula that as described above deflects the sun from your skin whilst adding a golden glimmer. I'm really excited to try this out and see what the effects are like. I also like that it's non greasy as that's one thing I hate about sun lotions and why I prefer the rub in kind (we usually use Piz Buin)|
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF30. I went into boots to buy our usual Piz Buin sun cream for the holiday and saw that the Hawaiian Tropic sun cream was half price and when I smelt it, I had to buy it. It smells so good I want to wear it right now. It has ribbons of hydration which sounds lovely and soothing and says it lasts for 12 hours. I really recommend this one!

It's not often that I see a beauty product online and think I really need those, yes, as a blogger and youtuber I do buy a fair amount of makeup but not really on a regular basis or because I've read about it, I'm more of a walk into boots and think that looks pretty so I'll buy it girl. The last time it happened was the naked basics palette, so when I saw these Stila countless Colour Pigments, I was like it is time! Without saying anything more, here they are:
Um..? wow?! These badboys only seem to be available on the American Stila website, but no doubt are on there way over to the UK! There are a few shades already for sale on SpaceNK. They are part of the festival collection coming soon, and oh my I love them! They will be £14 each (not too bad?) but obviously to buy all 10 that's £140 bloody hell. I do want them all though.. My favourites are Centre Stage, Melody, Tie Dye and Lyric. Can't wait to get my hands on a few of these!
What do you think of these countless colour pigments? Which are your favourite?
