One thing I am persistent with is SPF, it has been drilled in to me since a really young age that you must apply sunscreen daily that I think of it in the same light as brushing my teeth - a necessity.
When it comes to my body I can just about apply any brand and know that there will be no consequences i.e a rash or what not but with my face I have to be more selective as it has a tendency to breakout.
One daily SPF that I can use safe in the knowledge I won't end up covered in red angry blemishes is Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25.
The great thing about Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25 is that not only are you getting protection against both the UVA and UVB rays when applied but the added bonus of hydration too which not every sunscreen can offer. As you may know I have oily skin and I can safely say that apply this daily before foundation does not leave my skin feeling overwhelmed nor does it interfere with the over all finish of my make up either. It quickly absorbs and settles to a semi-matte finish, feels light on the skin and has been formulated to protect, nourish and soothe in one quick step. If an SPF 25 is not high enough for your needs it can be coupled with another sunscreen.
I really like how lightweight (it is free parabens and other nasties) Balance Me Natural Protection Moisturiser SPF25 is and the fact it doesn't leave my skin feeling sticky or greasy is a winner. I think it would be great to see the brand expand this line and perhaps offer a few more factors for those who need higher coverage but as a day to day UK sunscreen it is a great addition to any routine.
