We are finally coming into some warmer weather and there’s nothing more amazing then being outdoors to soak up the sunshine. The most important part of any skincare should be to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays and this can be done by using a sunscreen or a product that contains a high enough SPF to your preference.
I was recently contacted by Crystal Clear Skincare to see if I wanted to try their Protect and Repair* product from their Stay Young collection. As you can imagine I was pretty blown away and was more than happy to be sent the product.
Protect & Repair SPF40’s unique formula combines sunscreen technology with active anti-ageing ingredients. It absorbs UV and minimises the risk of sun-induced skin damage, whilst moisturising the skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. A pretty perfect all round product if you ask me!
For the past two weeks I have been using this product on a daily basis, I was using it as well as my everyday moisturiser but found it was creating a heavy feel on my skin so instead I opted to use the Protect & Repair as my daily moisturiser and ditch my everyday one for the time being.
I’ll start with the aesthetics of the product; the packaging is simple but sleek and has a pump dispenser which is perfect to allow minimal product release. The consistency of the product is like any standard sunscreen it isn’t too thick and applies really well onto the skin. It is lightweight, non-greasy and has a very slight sunscreen scent but nothing overpowering.
Some sunscreens can often leave the skin feeling sticky and a bit tacky which isn’t good when you have oily skin. But this one soaks into the skin almost immediately after application and doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind.
I’ve really enjoyed using this sunscreen it is a perfect moisturiser for all skin types with the added protection we all need. The product comes in 125ml bottle and retails for £43, I know this is quite steep for a sunscreen but this is a quality product and I can honestly tell you it’s worth every penny. The bottle will last a super long time; a little product goes a long way.
