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, and helps enhance anti-oxidant activity. This helps prevent the appearance of skin discolouration and unevenness.
Airlight to the touch, this transparent fluid formula is an ideal makeup primer.
You get 40ml with this – its pretty compact which makes it easy to carry around in my handbag:
Once again its the type of liquid sunscreen that needs a good shake otherwise it separates.
It smells quite fresh although its not a clear fragrance – it reminds me of the other Skincare products I have from La Mer…
Its a fairly runny texture but it sinks into the skin fine. Unlike the Green Coffee Sunscreen I reviewed yesterday I didn’t notice any sticky residue or a whitish cast on my face.
Therefore I am quite happy to wear this on my face as a primer – the finish is semi matte.
5 mins after on my hand – its practically invisible.
Price: 2/5 – Its £50 for 40ml!
I have a massive soft spot for this SPF – its one of the best liquid based sunscreens I have used but the price is extremely high. Can you get something as good for less than £50 – yes!
But do I think this feels great on my face and this is the kind of thing I will save just for my face (due to the cost). Its pretty much invisible when applied which I like, I like matching skincare.
