Sun Essentials: Payot Brume Mist, Nivea Protect & Moisture SPF50 & HelioCare Advance Gel SPF50

November 11, 2018

 For the past two weeks, we've been blessed with gorgeous sunny skies and I think we can safely say summer is here to stay; there's no denying a little bit of sun fills the heart with positive and feel-good factors!  I've put together three summer essentials I'm currently using that retail each under R300: NIVEA SUN Protect & Moisture Sun Lotion SPF50 (R169), My Payot Brume Eclat revivifying mist (R259) and HelioCare Advance Gel SPF50 (R295):


HelioCare Advance Gel SPF50

Years of tanning without suncream has taken its toll on my skin so it goes without saying that my routine includes an SPF every day, so I am currently using HelioCare Advanced Gel SPF50.

It ticks the boxes for:
- being lightweight 
- sinks into skin quickly
 - doesn't leave any white residue
- is oil-free so no breakouts for me
- feels non-greasy or tacky  
- it doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes

- non-comedogenic

- suitable for all skin types 


 Key ingredients are FernBlock, a natural plant extract found in Central America which contains photoprotective properties and a broad spectrum protection to protect skin. It's consistently a best-seller on Dermastore website available here



NIVEA SUN Protect & Moisture Sun Lotion SPF50
I'm a hurry-up let's go girl on the weekend, so I like to wake up, get dressed before walking down to the beach for an early morning swim, so this particular Nivea cream ticks the boxes for:
-not messing up my clothes if I accidentally get cream on them thanks to an anti-stain formula
- pleasant smell 
- sinks in quickly
- moisturises my skin whilst offering UVA/UVB sun protection 
- water resistant
-best price point (R169 for 200ml)


My Payot Brume Eclat Revivifying Mist
I'm a fan of facial mists to keep skin hydrated, so am always on the lookout for new ones. This one caught my eye because it contains anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid and superfruit extracts. It ticks the boxes for:

- formulated with no alcohol (so is non-drying)
- can be used for freshening up throughout the day
- used over makeup to help set
- refresh, hydrate and protect skin
- used at night after your night cream to intensify the regenerative properties
- suitable for all skin types 
(R259 for 50ml)

I'll say cheerio, it's time to go and get ready for a new week!

Happy Sunday!
