My Favourite Sunscreen Products

Hi guys. Happy Wednesday ! How has your week been so far ? 

Today I'm sharing some of my favourite sunscreen products with you . I wear sunscreen every day - come rain or shine and I let my son wear sunscreen on a daily basis too - so these are our favourite ones we are currently using. I believe sunscreen is such an important step in your daily routine - not only is sunburned skin super sore - it makes you age faster too . I believe sunscreen not only protects your skin - but is such an important step to keep you looking younger for longer. 

Justine Tissue Oil Skin Repair Face Cream SPF 20  (Normal Skin & Oily Skin versions)
I actually started using the smaller tube bottle of these on Alex a year or two ago as he was really struggling with dry skin and I wanted to get a good cream to hydrate his face and give sunscreen benefits. Now it's all that he uses This face cream is absorbed into the skin easily and helps moisture soften and protect against sun damage and premature ageing . I'm currently using the all skin types version on Alex - but they have this amazing cream in a Oily Skin version too - which I'm keen to try out once I finish the Justine Oil Control Moisturiser with SPF30 . 

Justine Oil Control Daily Moisturiser SPF 30
I've done a full review on the Oil Control range HERE . This is my favourite moisturiser at this stage - it hydrated your skin yet keeps it matte and sun protected and doesn't make you look like an oily mess at the end of the day. I can see myself repurchasing this one again and again - as this is the perfect summer moisturiser for me . 
Tissue Oil SPF 25
I'm already a huge fan of the Justine tissue oil range - and I like that they added a tissue oil with SPF . This tissue oil formula has a unique blend of UV filters , sweet almond oil and corn germ oil , Castor oil , wheatgerm oil and Vitamin E to nourish your face and body while providing added sun protection. I love using this on my shoulders and body during weekends if I know we will be spending lots of time at the pool . This helps keep my skin nourished and sun protected - which I love. 

Justine SolarTec Mattifying Defence for Face SPF 50
When I reviewed the Oil Control range I did mention I was using it with a Justine sunscreen. This is such a gem sunscreen. It offers a very high sun protection (SPF 50 ) yet keeps your skin mattified . I love using this sunscreen over the Oil Control moisturiser on days that I know I will be spending a lot of time in the sun (after school Tennis practise for the kiddo , spending time at the pool or braai with family and friends ) as this is one of the few sunscreens that keeps you mattified throughout the day. 
Justine SolarTec Lip Shield SPF 25 and Almay Age Essentials Lip Treatment SPF 30
Both of these are amazing lipbalms with sun protection. I've mentioned about a million times I've got extremely sensitive lips - and if I spend too much time in the sun the will get red and sunburned . I use these lipbalms when I'm out and about (driving in the car ... sitting at Alex's sport events  and tennis practise ... before I go out to the pool ... ) basically anytime I know I will be outdoors mostly. I really feel they both help amazingly well to keep my lips normal and hydrated (and not red and sunburned ) . I prefer the Justine one to keep in my handbag / work bag ( I have one for each bag) and the Almay one for when I'm at home and go swimming . 

These are all my current sunscreen favourites ? What's your current go to sunscreen ??

    1. Yes it's very important to remember to use it daily when you are on the paler side.

  4. Interesting products, as usual!

  5. I must admit that I never wear SPF for a few reasons: 1) I am rarely outdoors in the sun 2) I haaaaaaaate the feeling of SPF on my skin 3) I hate the smell of SPF. Somehow, because I am on the tan side, I feel like I don't have to wear SPF. I know that's incorrect, but let me live in my ignorant bubble. lol I wish I could wear SPF because I know how important it is.

    1. The smell of SPF can be overwelming at times :) Thanks for reading Cynthia

  6. Thanks for sharing these. I need to stock up on sunscreen because summer is coming.

  7. so cool items!
