Facial SPF Must Haves

I am one of those people who will not step out into the sun without having SPF all over me, especially on my face. It annoys me so much when people don't wear SPF because they want a 'tan', I would much rather prefer to look after my skin and use fake tan than get sun burnt. These are the four facial SPF's which I always use, especially when I know I am going to be out in the sun all day. 
Facial SPF Must Haves
Even when it isn't sunny outside I like to make sure that my makeup has an SPF in so I have some added protection from the sun. I recently picked up the Max Factor FaceFinity Primer which has an SPF 20 in it which I have been using every day during the week before foundation. While this creates a great smooth base for makeup I like that it is an SPF in so that I don't have to worry about applying an extra product in the morning when I am in a hurry getting ready for work at 5am! This primer does feel more like an SPF than a primer when you apply it to the skin but it does sink in quickly so you can go striaight ahead and apply the rest of your makeup. 

I recieved the Eucerin Sun Creme SPF 30 for Face in a beauty box last year and have finally opened it in the last couple of months. This is a slightly thicker SPF than my other favourites so I prefer to use this on no makeup days so it doesn't interfere with my foundation and base products. Another facial SPF I have been obsessed with in the last couple of years is the La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF 50 Fluid. This is an extremely thin SPF which I use most days during July to August when I spend the most time outside as it has such a high SPF in it. This SPF is perfect to apply under my makup as it doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy and it sinks in very quickly. 

A new product I have added to my skincare draw is another product from La Roche Posay which is the Anthelios Invisible Face Mist with SPF 50. This is a handbag essential for me at the moment as I like to use this when I am walking or having lunch outside as you can spray it over makeup and it doesn't leave a white case behind. This is refreshing on the skin thanks to the La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water! I was going to pick up the Bioderma version of this as everybody has been raving about it but this one has a higher SPF and La Roche Posay is one of my favourite skincare brands. 

Like with any SPF, for face or body, it is extremely important to reapply multiple times throughout the day and try tostay out of the sun as much as you can at the warmest times of the day.

  8. I always wear suncream as I'm one of those people who burn way too easily! I haven't heard of these specific ones before - but they sound great! I'll be looking out for them ☺️

  11. I'm really bad and I don't think any of my make up has SPF in it. Definitely going to invest in some primer though x
