Based on the French Riviera in Monaco, Lancaster was originally developed for Princess Grace of Monaco. If it’s fit for a princess, then it’s fit for our Glossies!
The Lancaster Sun Beauty Silky Fluid Milk SPF15, £24, is unbelievable. It smells gorgeous and is the only sun cream to 100% protect you against the sun’s rays. It is most definitely my go-to sun product.
You can’t get a sun cream better than this. It’s the only sun cream that protects against 100% of the sun rays. We all look for sun creams with a 5* UVA and UVB rating, but did you know that most sun creams aren’t protecting you against Visible Light + Infrared too?
Lancaster sun creams are the only creams on the market with Full Light Technology which 100% targets all of the sun rays (UVB, UVA, Visible Light and Infrared).
Why do I need more protection?
Sunlight is responsible for 80% of the appearance of visible signs of ageing, but traditional sunscreens only protect against UV rays, which represent just 10% of sun-spectrum rays. The remaining 90% is made up of visible light and infrared.
Did you know that infrared light can disrupt the structural proteins within your skin, inflame cells and cause premature skin ageing? What’s more, visible light has been found to cause indirect DNA damage,free radical production and in turn cause problems like pigmentation!
Lancaster Sun Beauty Silky Fluid Milk
This silky sun cream in this month’s box not only helps to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity, but it also contains tan activating ingredients that help you to build a gradual golden tan. It does all this while providing you with 100% sun ray protection…voilà! This range in particular is recommended for those with skin that burns minimally and tans gradually.
What I love most about this sun cream is that after application, it doesn’t feel greasy or sticky and it sinks straight in.
I love the quality of Lancaster products so I was dying to try their Tan Maximiser Soothing Moisturiser After Sun too. You can apply this to your face and body after sun exposure to calm, soothe and hydrate your skin.
It’s also formulated with a Tan Activator Complex that’s developed for extended release of natural melanin to enhance and extend your tan for up to 4 weeks!
This also isn’t greasy, it soaks straight in and reduces the risk of peeling! What’s also great is that it gives a luminous glow to your skin – it’s a must-have in my suitcase before jetting off.
The Lancaster Sun Sensitive Range
Because I have very sensitive skin, I was also excited to hear about Lancaster’s Sun Sensitive rangethat contains fewer ingredients than their other creams, to cater for those who often suffer from allergies and irritation. They even have a Invisible Compact Face Cream with SPF 50 that’s easy to apply on the go! There really is a range to suit all skin types.
I also love the face compact because it mattifies your skin, rather than it feeling oily and looking shiny!
Protect your skin
Remember to protect your skin while you’re in the sun and moisturise afterwards to keep your skin youthful, glowing and protected. Everyone’s skin is different, so please make sure you use the appropriate SPF for your skin type.
