Today, I would love to get you holiday-ready with my favorite five sun products that I have tested intensively during the last two weeks during my stay in St. Tropez. Sun cream is the biggest summer essential in our beauty bags, and you can be expecting no less than the best protection for your skin with these must-haves.
FOR THE FACE
DIOR BRONZE Beautifying Protective Creme Sublime Glow SPF 50
CHF 49.50 (50ml)
Boasting a divine melt-in texture and an incredible scent, this facial sun cream has a finish that reveals its pearlescent highlights and that is extremely light for its high sun protection factor. It does not whiten the skin that is instantly wrapped in a satiny light. Designed for the fine and fragile skin of the face, it protects it from free radicals and prevents the appearance of photo-induced dark spots. For me a daily must!
SISLEY Tinted Sun Care Youth Protector SPF 30
CHF 150.00 (40ml)
Available in 01 Natural – 02 Golden (this is the shade I am wearing)- 03 Amber
If I am looking for more coverage at the beach or at dinner, I go for this amazing product with its ideal luminous make-up finish. Besides, it helps to protect the skin from the effects of photo-aging, such as wrinkles, brown spots, dehydration and loss of firmness. Its optimal sun protection filters and active ingredients protect the DNA and have anti-free radical properties. Moreover the moisture level of your skin is maintained.
FOR THE BODY
BIOTHERM Fluide Solaire Wet or Dry Skin SPF 30
CHF 41.00 (200ml)
I love this sun cream! And do you want to know why? Wet or dry, there is no need to choose anymore! Get the same sun protection even when skin is wet. New water-chasing technology prevents the formula from being diluted by water to protect wet skin so you can top up faster. With its so-called «Sun Sea Wind Repair Technology» it defends your skin from the combined effect of sea, wind and salt which make it more vulnerable to UV damage.
LA MER The After Sun Enhancer
CHF 150.00 (200ml)
Get your post-sun glow with this luxurious, lightweight gelée that instantly cools and quenches parched skin. Over time, it softens and recharges skin from the look of damage for an even, radiant and ageless tan. Massage onto body in circular motions for soothing post-sun pampering and to help enhance skin’s luminous glow.
LANCASTER – Le Parfum Solaire EdT
CHF 60.00 (100ml)
The House is known for breakthrough innovations in UV expertise. Never wear perfume and expose your skin to the sun as it can cause serious irritations. But here is an exception that is specially developed for the sun: Lancaster’s newest fragrance Le Parfum Solaire which gives you a flowery-musky relaxing cloud and will keep your memories of the holidays all year around.
