Dear Oily-Skinned People,
Please let me introduce you to the least shiny SPF that has ever been invented. The finish is so dry and matt that it is almost freaky. It goes on as a cream but feels just like a powder on the skin and it leaves your face perfectly smooth and shine-free. It’s like blotting paper in a tube!
Important to note that the cream isn’t actually drying, it just feels dry. So it’s great for all skin types, but those with very dry skin might feel a little uncomfortable if they are used to very rich and nourishing formulas. I think that those with oily or blemish-prone skin will love it though – it doesn’t slip off, it disappears immediately upon application and it doesn’t leave any white residue on the skin. The sun filters are 100% mineral (zinc oxide) which is another bonus for those who are prone to breakouts. I wish that I had discovered this earlier in the summer – it really acts as a mattifying primer, moisturiser and suncreeen in one. Once you’re used to the slightly unconventional texture, it’s the perfect day cream for wearing when the weather is humid and bothersome.
Bothersome! I’m turning into a Victorian!
Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Daily Moisture SPF 30 is usually £23.50 but is currently in the FeelUnique sale at £19.95 with free delivery here: http://tidd.ly/d165ad0e. I think that’s really quite a nice price for such a convenient product – good skincare, an SPF and my favourite scent (rose, in case you hadn’t guessed!) all in one tube.
