The Sunblock (SPF 30):
This is a SPF 30 sunscreen block in solid form which you wash over your body when you’re in the shower or bath. A very innovative product, this is a very easy way to ensure your skin is protected the first thing in the morning. Simply break a third of the bar off and the buttery block melts very quickly when massaged on your body over warm water. I really love this bar, anything that makes things more convenient and I’m on it like a car bonnet! When you first this, it’s a bit of a weird sensation because it might appear messy and greasy, and feel like you’re literally rubbing a block of butter over your skin. Nothing to be alarmed about though. You can apply a bit of shower gel to cleanse yourself afterwards and once you’re out of the shower and have dried yourself off, your skin will feel back to normal after ten minutes leaving you with smooth, moisturised skin.This sunblock contains soothing calamine powder that’s naturally rich in zinc oxide. It’s also packed with sesame oil, cocoa butter, chamomile blue oil and rose absolute. These ingredients nourishes, calms and soothes skin.
Sesame Suntan (SPF 10):
I have a 100g bottle of sunscreen lotion here which smells a lot like peanut butter! If you’re not keen on nuts, you won’t like this. This is a fairly straight forward lotion, it smells and feels nice. It holds a very strong nutty scent as it is made of toasted organic sesame oil with walnut leaf infusion, aloe vera extract and columbian cocoa butter. It’s a light lotion that’s easy to distribute over your body without that typical chalky feeling you get with other sunscreen. If you’ve applied the sunblock in the shower, the Sesame Suntan lotion gives an extra protection, it even helps you tan! The low SPF factor makes it perfect for our fairly mild British Summer. This product is available in two sizes, 100g for £8 or 250g for £15. The smaller bottle is handy size for travelling, I’ll be taking this around with me for the remainder of Summer.
Million Dollar Moisturiser (SPF 30):
This is a premium face protection from LUSH and it cost £32.50 for a 45g tub which is small. Initially, I couldn’t believe that the small tub cost that much, and it was filled up to the top either. For that price, I do think there’s better SPF facial moisturisers out there and I’ve been trying a lot of them this past 6 months, but if you are a hardcore LUSH fan, you might take a fancy to the Million Dollar Moisturiser. Made from a blend of sesame oil (to refract the sunlight), sesame seeds, oatmeal, primrose oil, Shea butter, honey, ground almonds and lavender oil to keep your complexion smooth, soft and hydrated. There is also a subtle shimmery flecks of gold in the cream which adds a healthy, illuminating glow. I personally don’t like to use anything shimmery all over my face but this isn’t too over the top. There is a slight grubby, chalky feeling after this has dried and if you’re patient, that will disappear in 15-20 minutes whilst the moisturiser is absorbing. My favourite thing about this is the scent, it smells like toffee!
