For those who take sun protection seriously! (WARNING- high end!)

Monday, April 21, 2014
I've been having a bit of a love affair lately with a crazy expensive product which i managed to justify buying by my mother's guidelines that if you wear it daily (glasses, for example), then its okay to splash out. It being vegan and cruelty free also helped (full list of vegan Chantecaille products here).

I've been unhappy with most facial sunscreens i've tried that have a high SPF either because you can't layer makeup over them because it just slips and slides all over or because of insane flashback in photographs. Thanks to this discovery both of those things are now a thing of the past.

The Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen boasts a broad spectrum SPF of 50! At first this gave me visions of looking like a slimy ghost on the beach as a kid because my mum would make us wear factor 10,000 but after trying it i soon got over that.

The consistency is very runny so bear that in mind if you're going to try it or you could end up with all 40ml in your hand. It definitely has the color and consistency of a primer and leaves your skin texture pretty flawless and ready for foundation but don't use too much or you made need to pat away any excess with a tissue before adding makeup.

It has a very slight SPF smell to it but only if you're really smelling for it and after a few minutes you can't smell a thing.

Such a high SPF might seem silly to some but sun protection is so important in warding off the aging process and the obvious risk of skin cancer, which can be significantly reduced with a little common sense and a good SPF.

Definitely a pricey product but for a special treat or perhaps a bday request, i'd definitely recommend it.
