When we heard about the viral TikTok aged filter we just had to try it and we were pretty shocked by the results! How accurate the filter is really is debatable with some people barely changing and others (like us) seeing their grandma staring back at them. So, what do you do if you want to try to slow down the process IRL? Invest. In. SPF. Luckily, we’ve got just the kit for you…
Our new SPF & Go Kit just dropped and it’s got *everything* you need to help protect your skin.
While aging is a beautiful thing and something to embrace, we all want our skin to look great for as long as possible. Longer exposure to UVA rays in particular can cause lasting damage and increase the risk of premature aging, so getting into a solid SPF routine really is the best thing you can do for your skin now to help it look radiant and youthful in the future. Which is why, for a limited time, we're giving you a special discount on our complete suncare collection!
Plus, each of these three sunscreens has been dermatologically tested and is safe for sensitive skin, so everyone can use them. Let’s take a look at what’s included and answer a few of your top SPF FAQs…
When should I use sunscreen?
It’s super important to use SPF to tackle the effects of UVB (burning) and UVA (aging) rays but it’s not just for sunny days, it’s an all-year-round essential. Yep, come rain or shine! Because even when it’s cloudy, you’re still being exposed to UV rays.
The time you can skip it is your evening routine. Cleanse really well and use a non-SPF moisturizer at night to give you and skin some well-earned beauty rest. Don’t forget, if you use retinoids and AHA/BHA toners as part of your night-time routine it’s especially important to make sure your face is protected the following day.
What’s the difference between our two facial sunscreens?
It’s good to have options in life, right? That’s why this set includes two SPFs for the face. We’ve put together this handy guide on the key differences between the two but the main thing to know is our Daily Radiance Primer SPF 50 is lightly tinted and perfect for prepping the skin for make-up. So, reach for it on days when you’re doing a little glam and Daily Water Gel SPF 50+ sunscreen instead when you’re feeling more off-duty, beachy moments.
Daily Radiance Primer SPF 50 Sunscreen
Your face needs extra-special attention and the Daily Radiance Primer SPF 50 is about to be your new go-to product. It’s the ultimate multi-tasker that helps defend against not only the sun but pollution and blue light, too, so it's a great investment if you live in the city. You can use it as a beautifully nourishing base for make-up or on its own to give you that effortlessly dewy, ‘clean girl’ look.
Daily Water Gel SPF 50+ Sunscreen
We can’t get enough of the ultra-light texture of Daily Water Gel SPF 50+ sunscreen. It’s so fresh and glides onto skin, so you don’t have to wait too long for it to absorb (we know your diary is packed!). It doesn’t compromise on protection either because it has SPF 50+ and PA++++ all in one handy tube. It’s also the perfect size to fit in your handbag or carry-on if you’re going on a trip.
How should I protect my body?
If you love being in the ocean or a chilled pool day, then you’ll be obsessed with our Body Sunscreen SPF 50+. It’s water-resistant for up to four hours, so you can live your best mermaid life. Not to mention it’s loaded with skin-loving ingredients like aloe vera and vitamin E to help keep your skin hydrated. Its ultra-lightweight, fragrance-free formula means it works just as well when you’re not on the beach, so you can use it as part of your day-to-day routine also.
How often should I reapply sunscreen?
We want you to have the best time enjoying yourself in the great outdoors, so remember to top up your SPF regularly. Did you know an SPF factor actually tells you how long it might take for you to burn? Depending on how sensitive your skin is to the sun, that is. For example, if you naturally burn in ten minutes an SPF 50 could protect you for up to 500 minutes. This can vary, though if you’re sweating, swimming and things like that. That’s why it’s a good idea to apply it more often than you’d think to, just to be on the safe side.
Remember, the safest way to be sun-kissed without the risk of aging your skin early really is self-tan and we’ve got some of the best around! Check out our Sunny Honey collection right here.
It’s the perfect pairing with our SPF & Go bundle for that just-back-from-Bali glow that we’re all craving right now.
It’s in the bag
Finally, isn’t this the cutest little limited edition bag? Our trio of suncare products come inside, so you really can grab and go. Once you’re done, you can refill or use it to store more of your faves. We can’t wait to hear what you think of your new SPF BFFs!
