Suncare pt2 + SkincareRX GIVEAWAY!

So this will be the second part of my suncare post. This is where I want YOUR opinions and there will also be a sponsored giveaway from SkincareRX/

I mentioned La Roche Posay in the first part of this post, and to be honest, I've never tried their products but I heard MANY good things about it. Its supposed to be one of the front-runners in suncare, in terms of face cream.

La Roche Posay Anthelios is a French brand, claiming to use the water from the village of La Roche Posay in the french region of poitou-charentes. The water is supposed to have wonderful properties, which if its anything like my favourite mineral water Volvic, it sounds like a great product range! You can actually purchase it at the SkincareRX website, which is handy for online shoppers. I think some Boots stores in the UK stock it too, but I'm sure it is only in the bigger stores.

Anyways, It's summer, I finished exams, I'm feeling happy so I'm offering to host a giveaway and the prize is courtesy of so if you want to get your hands on La Roche Posay products and other brands like Dermalogica to supplement your skin, you have $100 to spend!

At the moment, I'm using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid with spf 70. It's not the 'best,' but it provides the protection I need, even if it's ridiculously drying.

My favorite suncare is Shiseido SPF 55 for Face & Body. I LOVE IT! Thanks much!! :D

Justine said...

Top suncare products: clothing, titanium dioxide & zinc oxide in powdered form. To protect my skin, I always wear crew-neck tops and long pants, even in the sweltering summer heat. Sometimes I'll even wear long sleeves if I can tolerate the length. For me, clothing is the easiest and most comfortable sun protection. I absolutely hate the feeling of any sunscreens on my skin, so I'll dust powdered titanium dioxide & zinc oxide on exposed skin.
