Protect, Whiten, Brighten: Kose COEN RICH Q10 White UV Protector SPF50+ Review


I am crazy for SPF at the moment, and one of my recent purchases was this Kose Coen Rich Q10 SPF. This comes in a handy small sized container (good for the handbag) with a SPF50 and whitening properties. It’s also waterproof and good for outdoor activities – what else could you want (if running for the bus counts as an outdoor activity?!). This little bottle needs a good shake before you squeeze it out, […]

Sun Protection in your Face Powder: Skin79 Diamond All Day Sun Powder SPF 30


Buy something just because of the packaging? Me? Never! Well ok…quite often. Skin79 has some interesting releases, although their BB cream is too light for me and their concealer didn’t cut the mustard! I wanted to try this All Day Sun Powder though – it sets your make up and has a high SPF of 30 too. And it, er, comes in a really nice case. They say: Luxurious loose powder formulated with Diamond Powder […]

More Sunscreen! Lioele Freshwater Sunscreen Review


Lioele is a Korean brand which seems to be getting more attention over the internet recently. I first discovered the brand about a year ago and ordered a big box of random goodies. As usual, the foundation and base products were too pale for me and I was so disappointed I got gave a lot of the things away or sold them in a blog sale. This Lioele Freshwater Sunscreen did catch my eye recently […]

Sunscreen Special Day 5: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse Water Base SPF 50+


The last sunscreen I have purchased recently is Biore’s UV Aqua Rich Watery Mousse in SPF 50. Biore products (from Asia and especially Japan) and fabulous and quite frankly better than the ranges they have over in the UK. For example, the nose strips are stronger and more effective (Asia release) than the UK versions. No idea why… I got this because I wanted a SPF for the face with SPF 50 that had a […]

Sunscreen Special Day 4: Skinfood Quince Whitening Sun Lotion SPF 34 Review


How is it possible for me to not buy a skincare item that has Quince in it! This is Quince: Korres, of course did a Quince Lip Balm although it just smelt sort of apple-y and pear-y to me. Anyway, the purchase was this – Skinfood’s Quince Whitening Sun Lotion. Not only will it protect, it will whiten too and brighten too. Honest. With a generous SPF 34 and 70ml of product, I treated this […]

Sunscreen Special Day 3: Skinmedica Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30


When I first got this Sunscreen in the post, I didn’t rush to open it – didn’t look very exciting, I sort of forgot about it for a while. Skinmedica’s Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 is apparently excellent for mature skins and especially good if you need a SPF post surgical procedure. This doesn’t apply to me *touch wood* at the moment, but it didn’t stop me from giving it a test run. Even though […]

Sunscreen Special Day 2: Creme De La Mer The SPF UV Protecting Fluid SPF 30


You can’t argue with a touch of luxury, even if it is something like your sunscreen. I am personally a fan of La Mer – I love their foundation, their lipbalm, their face cream. They work well for me. But without a doubt its pricey stuff! They say about Creme De La Mer’s The SPF UV Protecting Fluid with an SPF of 30: Tourmaline and Malachite help absorb light energy, turning it into green light, […]

Sunscreen Special Day 1: Skinfood Green Coffee Sun Screen SPF 50


I love Skinfood’s creative creations (all their cosmetics and skincare are based on food) so being a coffee addict, I had to pick up this Green Coffee Sun Screen SPF 50 from eBay (where else?). Green Coffee is supposed to be high in anti oxidants – the fact that this SPF is 50 was appealing too. Remember, anti- age, anti age! This sunscreen is a liquid type that needs a good shake before you use […]
