Laying out in the sun and getting a bit of colour is such an amazing feeling, but of course that amazing colour will only stay if you take really good care of your skin after. This year I wanted to take away a couple of products that I had never tried before and they honestly rocked my world! One of them I’ve used for years and two of them are new discoveries which I am super impressed with and mega excited to share with you.
If you read my post on SPF then you will know that I am a big fan of Garnier when it comes to sun care. I just think that their products are so efficient and really do what they say. This particular product I’ve used for a couple of years and it always goes away with me on holiday. It’s has a gel texture which feels so refreshing on the skin. Usually I place it in the fridge and slather this all over my body after a day in the sun and I can’t even explain how amazing it feels! It absorbs quickly and leaves me feeling fresh and hydrated. Definitely a must have.
Oh. My. Gawd! Words cannot express how much love I have for this product. It was one of those that I saw online, read the ingredients list (smallest list in the world btw) and just wanted to buy it immediately. There’s something about Aloe during the summer that always appeals to me. I picked this up from Space NK and had to try it before taking it away with me. I used to spray this in the mornings as a little refresh and extra layer of moisturise before my face cream and already knew that this was going to become a summer essential for me. I wasn’t wrong. Whilst I was sunning it up in Rhodes, this worked wonders on my skin. After having a shower I used to spray this all over my face and body. It felt so cooling and hydrating, exactly what I needed after a day in the sun. I did go through this bottle rather quickly, five days I’d say, but I used it so much and I felt like it really helped my skin. I definitely missed it when I ran out. If you haven’t tried this yet, you have to! Promise you won’t be disappointed.
This was a new purchase for me, again if you read my SPF post you will already know that I have wanted to try products from this brand for a very long time. It’s one of the best aftersun creams I’ve used so far. Unlike the Garnier one, this is more of an actual lotion, it smells like summer and leaves the skin looking glowing. It almost looks like it has shimmer in it because your limbs are left looking so hydrated and shiny, Victoria Secret model-esque if you like. Usually after a few days in the sun I tend to start getting dry, flakey skin around my belly, arms and chest, however I hardly had any dry skin at all this time and I think it’s down to this product. I can see why so many people are obsessed with this brand.
What are your after sun must haves?
