Welcome to a brand new blog post. I thought that today I would talk to you all about an SPF that I have been loving during the hot weather that we have been having at the moment.
‘Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-Dark Spots & Anti-Pollution Super UV SPF 50+ Protection Fluid is enriched with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E. Developed for the sensitive face area, the ultra-light formula is absorbed instantly and offers daily hydration without leaving a greasy finish. Very high SPF protection to help prevent sun induced dark spots and protect against pollution induced oxidative stress. Formulated to protect all skin tones, is suitable for daily use. Tested under dermatological control, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. Anti-eye stinging.The formula conforms 100% to European recommendations for protection against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB rays. This suncream offers advanced protection against immediate sun induced skin damage, caused by UVB rays, as well as protection from long-term damage and premature skin ageing caused by UVA rays.’ - Garnier UK.
The texture off this SPF is creamy and moisturising but ever so light on the face.When squeezing out of the bottle, the fluid comes out in a slightly milky texture to me but does not run all over the place as soon as I tilt my hand. (I have a habit of doing multiple things when I’m applying skin care/SPF because well I like to multitask). With the heat, I sometimes suffer from sensory overload which can mean that I can’t stand thick textures on my face if I am suffering from overload and I have been using this when I have suffered with overload and it has been amazing. When it settles into the skin, to paraphrase Ned Flanders it feels like I have nothing at all on my face.
I suffer from having dry and acne prone skin due to a miltitude of reasons. When I have applied this, I have noticed that even after applying moisturiser that my skin feels even more hydrated due to the hyaluronic acid that is in this SPF. I have also noticed that when I am having an acne flare up and am using this SPF that my skin doesn’t feel as angry as it normally does due to the Vitamin E that is in this product. Most of the time, about after fifteen minutes, I can feel the area where my acne normally is allocated start to feel less irritated which is also a good thing as it makes me feel less self conscious and makes me aware that I know that the active ingredients in this SPF are doing what they are meant to.
As mentioned above, when I am applying my skincare products, I have a big tendency of multitasking and honestly rushing. I know that I have just whacked products on when I have scheduled to meet a friend or do something specific at a certain time many times before. That’s kind of another reason why I love this product. Not only does it sink in quickly which I am always a big fan of for when I’m well rushing or just having one of those days. This SPF has a non-greasy texture to it which means I’m not feeling self conscious on the train that I’ve slapped products on or that I’m constantly touching my face thinking that I look like I’ve dipped my face into a cosmetics store and not blended them into my skin properly..
Would I buy this product again? Definitely. I already have done. I have been using this SPF for several months now and I absolutely love it. It has become my everyday SPF. I have started to dabble back into makeup recently and I am intrigued to try out Garner’s Over Makeup SPF Spray. Would anyone want me to review that? This SPF is definitely one to try if you’re looking for an everyday holy grail SPF 50 that will help you stay looking amazing and prevent dark-spots not only in the blazing weather that we are having at the moment but all year round. I’d definitely give this a 9.7/10.
Priced at £12 but on offer at Boots at a price of £8 if you use a Boots Advantage Card when purchasing this superb SPF. (This offer is available at the time of writing which is the 25th June 2023).
