Some Great High Protection Facial SPFs, Tried and Tested.

 Honey, I’m home! I’d like to say that I’m well-rested, but what with the five thousand videos I recorded, I think I probably worked harder than when I wasn’t supposed to be taking it easy! Anyway, lots to tell you but I have to dash out and so here’s the first of the videos. I have devised a new ‘series’ of reviews called, annoyingly and not very imaginatively, High Five. Each video (and this will be a permanent feature, so feel free to groan…NOW) will have five tried and tested products that do a similar thing but that are slightly different. Does that make any sense at all? I’ll try to include different price ranges, ingredients, skin types and so on. I hope to God that you’ll find them useful, because I have about twelve of them pre-recorded! Ha.

Here we go, then, with five high protection SPFs for the face. Shopping List, as always, is beneath the video pane!

  1. Ooh what nail varnish are you wearing in this? It’s perfect for an impending Ibiza trip…

  2. SkinDeepBlogger

    Love this new concept- high fives all round!

  3. Love your vids. I have an Avene SPF 30 face cream, love it :)

  4. I have the Anthelios, it is really great. For the first time in my life I’ve been using high sun protection every single day (this summer) and I do notice a big difference not only on the colour of imperfection but also on the texture and radiance of the skin.
    BTW, your skin looks perfect, very healtly and glowing.

  5. yay for high fives! Hope you had a brilliant holiday :) xox

  6. Fab video – any particular ones you’d recommend for oily skin Ruth? I know you mention the La Roche Posay one but I had heard even that leaves oily skins greasy?

  7. Strawberry Blonde

    I also use La Roche Posay Anthelios & reviewed it recently. Absolutely love it & wear everyday.

    Love the High Five idea!

  8. Thanks Ruth!

  9. Thanks for the spf info! I have seen a La-Roche Posay Anthelios mineral spf for oily skin on the US website but it doesn’t seem to exist in the UK yet. Do you know anything about this at all? x
