Behold lovelies, my AVON ‘Summer Saviours’!
As you may or may not know I am currently on holiday in the lovely, warm (scorching!) Marrakech and have been since last Friday.
Anyone who knows me will know that I’m as pale/white as a ghost and have the inability to tan, which of course only means one thing when being exposed to the sun – I burn.
Luckily, I came prepared – I brought with me my lovely collection of ‘Avon’s Sun+ Skincare’ in order to shield me from the pale people’s nightmares, and I’d like to share them with you guys.
Firstly, I’d like to start off with my favourite.
‘AVON Sun+ Pure & Sensitive SPF 50’
This has well and truly been my saving grace, not only does it protect your skin and face with the sun protection factor but it also well and truly gives your skin that extra TLC that it needs when being exposed to warm temperatures.
Enjoy the occasional swim whilst being away? Not a problem as displayed on the bottle, and tested by yours truly, (I’m a water baby) this IS water resistant so swim away and bask in the reassurance that you’ll be safe whilst doing so.
Now for application, very simple, as the saying goes ‘a little goes a long way’ and this is no exception. Approximately a ten-pence size of the product into your palm will cover the upper half of your body and then the same again for the lower half, remember to re-apply depending on how long you intend to stay in the sun for as there is no such thing as a one-application wonder unfortunately, but every two hours is a perfect timescale to go by.
Next of my summer saviours is the ‘AVON Sun+ After Sun Cooling Lotion’
Now if by chance you have been caught by the sun (or you’re lazy and sometimes forget to apply regularly like me) and you have experienced the burning-ouchy sensation on your skin then you’ll want relief and will need to cool the area down as much as possible in order to minimise the burn.
This product gives you the cooling sensation that your skin craves after being exposed, and with immediate effect when applied, cools the skin down to a more bearable temperature. Also as this product is enriched with Aloe it leaves your body with a minty-fresh scent. As always with the AVON skincare range the product is very moisturising and nourishing to the skin.
For application purposes, I have been applying this mostly in the evening time when the sun has gotten to it’s lowest point and the temperature has dropped so I can fully indulge in the cooling-sensation this gives on the sensitive parts of my skin. How much to use? As you would only use as much as was required, I would say the size of a small 5 pence would suffice on the affected area.
And last but certainly not the least ‘AVON Advanced Techniques Sun Light Spray’
With the temperatures in Marrakech reaching over 40 degrees and having bleached blonde/white hair, I certainly can’t risk abusing my hair and since I’ve been using this I have noticed that the quality in my hair hasn’t changed a bit – which is a good thing guys as it means that the product has done what it claims to do – Protect your hair from the sun!
Another excellent factor from this product is that it doesn’t leave your hair feeling greasy as it’s water-based and not oily. I don’t know about you guys, but for me there’s nothing worse than getting out of a shower to spray product in your hair in order for it to feel as though you never washed it. I find that 5 squirts of this spray covers the entirety of my hair and leaves me good for the day ahead.
As always thank you for taking the time to read my reviews. Feel free to share, I hope this helps some of you who are ready for the holiday season but are not quite sure on which products to trust when bracing the sun.
These for me are essential for your holidays! Let me know what your summer essentials are and if you love these items just as much as I do.
I’d love to get your feedback!
