We should all be wearing SPF protection everyday, all year round, not just in the summer months. Harmful UV rays can still affect your skin even through clouds, this is why it is so important to ensure you are protecting your skin sufficiently. I recently thought that I needed to invest in a decent SPF, and being an independent consultant for The Body Shop I opted for the Vitamin E Moisture-Protect Emulsion.
I am already a fan of the Vitamin E range, it provides the right amount of hydration without ever being greasy or causing breakouts. It’s hydrating and gentle, using Vitamin E and Wheatgerm Oil to give skin an injection of natural moisture. In addition to these two ingredients, the Moisture-Protect Emulsion contains Hyaluronic Acid and provides SPF30 protection. This means not only is it protecting against harmful UV rays which could age skin, heighten your skin of developing skin cancer and irritate skin – but the active hyaluronic acid is also anti-ageing, and plumps skin.
How does it perform?
I think sometimes we have a perception of SPF moisturisers that they are going to be like runny sun creams, the ones that have that smell that reminds you of childhood holidays at the beach. However, SPF creams have come a long way since then! This one has a lovely texture which absorbs perfectly, isn’t too runny, and smells gorgeous – just like the rest of the Vitamin E range!
This moisturiser which can be worn daily retails at £16 for a 50ml bottle, but I think this is good value. As with all Body Shop moisturisers, a little goes a long way when applying so this bottle should last.
Another thing I really like about this cream is that throughout the day, it doesn’t create a film like texture over your skin. Once it’s absorbed it acts like any other moisturiser, but you have the benefit of knowing your skin is protected.
I think this will be one of those products that I re-buy when it runs out, I just love the fact that I don’t have to use it in addition to a daily moisturiser – its an SPF with UVA and UVB protection in addition to an effectively hydrating daily moisturiser.
