Sunscreen you'll look forward to applying!

With the gorgeous weather we've been having recently it seems like the perfect time to post a sun related skin care review especially as the good weather looks like it's here to stay (well, for now at least)!

I love a tan as much as the next person but I'm also blessed with fair skin and therefore know (as im sure you all do) how important it is to keep your skin protected while sunbathing or just frolicing around outside! One of my favourite sun proctection brands is Piz Buin. I love everything about their products including the packaging, the smell, the consistany and the results! Unless its scorching hot, I generally stick with SPF 20 when in the UK but regardless of where I am, I HATE thick, sticky, greasy suncreen that doesnt absorbe into your skin! Which also happens to be why I love Piz Buin Active Long Lasting Sun Spray SPF 20 Medium (that has to be the longest product name in history)!

Piz Buin Active Long Lasting Sun Spray SPF 20 Medium comes in 2 formats, as an aerosol spray & as a lotion. I'm recommending the aerosol spray as it also acts as a cooling mist when applying! In fact, it's so refreshing I actually look forward to using it as applying sun cream is normally such a chore...! It smells gorgeous & is absorbed into your skin pretty much instantly & to touch you wouldnt even know you were wearing any factor. It's both sweat & water resistant although you do need to reapplying if fairly frequently.  It's pretty much the ideal sun protection for when you're out & about or just working on the tan this summer! I would recommend something a bit more resilient for holidaying in more exotic countries as, like I said, you do have to reapplying this fairly often (but that's not to say I don't always take this along as well though)!

There is currently a Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer on Piz Buin sun care at Boots, both in store & online. At £15.31 a bottle you'll be saving a bundle! If anyone has product raves about any of the other Piz Buin products, let me know!



  1. Such a sensible post to put out there! This product sounds great. I have been a fan of Piz Buin Sun Lotions as I find they work really well and never leave me feeling greasy. This sounds like such an easy way to apply sunblock that there can be no excuse for not doing it x x

  2. Exactly! I hated applying & reapplying sunscreen until I discovered this gem & now it doesnt bother me at all, infact I look forward to the cool down! Yep, I think I need to try some other Piz Buin products. I've heard good things about the '1 Day Long' Lotion - might try that next! xCx


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing what you guys have to say & I'll always leave a reply! Please feel free to share any tips or recommendations too. xCx
