It’s officially Summer today, the sun is out, which means it’s time for my list of favourite SPFs.
Disclaimer: I wear SPF 365 days a year, I prefer mineral sunscreens (for their stability, the fact they physically protect your skin and because I have a bad history with Octocrylene, which is not even a proper sunscreen but a stabiliser).
The days of mineral sunscreens being white are gone – those heavy, un-spreadable formulations with a “looking-like-a-ghost” finish – they’re a thing of the past. However, mineral sunscreens aren’t just a, well, sunscreen! The majority of them are packed with loads of hydrating ingredients, high quality oils and other goodies and can be easily be doubled up as a daily moisturise too.
