Up until recently I was more than happy if a foundation had some SPF included in it although it was not my first priority. So when the lady at my Clinique counter told me their content was not enough to actually stop sun damage I was really surprised and realised that I probably should do something about it and actually buy a specific product....So being the excellent sales lady she was, the Clinique lady brought out this product- 'City Block Sheer'. Having combination skin I was slightly reluctant that a product containing an SPF of 25 would be really oily BUT this is oil free!! It comes out in a sort of foundation colour but once it is blended in it is completely clear and you still need to apply your usual make-up.
With the weather becoming warmer and the sun's rays becoming hotter it is really reassuring to know that there is a base coat of protection guarding my face! I've now become a complete SPF addict, with age spots running in my family (*sighs*) I'm determined I won't get them!
Yesterday I went to my cousins 21st Birthday that she was celebrating with everyone in the family. The food was so yummy, hello prawns, filo tart, and salad (an amazing change from student food!). They also did an Easter egg hunt in the garden for all the cousins- one of our great family traditions. Her birthday cake had a Barbie in the top of a cake with a round cake as her dress (like we all had as children!) the sponge had white chocolate in! Below is a picture of me, my sister and my cousin in our outfits for the day! (Somehow we all managed to wear different colours!).
Do any of you use any specific face protector creams? And who is getting excited about Easter?! xx
