I’ve always been passionate about sunscreen after my mothers melanoma experience a few years back, and am thrilled that sunscreen is finally cool, thanks to important initatives like #CallTimeonMelanoma and beauty gurus such as Hannah English keeping sunscreen relevant. With brands now offering SPF50+ in Australia, which was almost unheard of previously, and new kids on the block Ultra Violette offering a wide variety of textures for all skin types – now is the perfect time to find your ideal sunscreen or skinscreen for LIFE.
Ultra Violette: ‘A skinscreen is the perfect combination of skincare and sunscreen – with hydrating ingredients that are just as potent as their SPF counterparts. You can use them solo, or layered with your other skin staples like serums, moisturiser and foundation for an extra punch of hydration. All of our products are purposely designed to work for the good of your skin, both in the short and long term.’
Ultra Violette are currently the following three options:
- Queen Screen: A lightweight, invisible broad spectrum SPF50+ serum with a luminising finish. For normal to dry skin, including sensitive.
- Clean Screen SPF 30 Mattifying Mineral Skinscreen: A mattifying broad spectrum SPF30 mineral sunscreen, for all skin types including combination to oily, sensitive, and inflamed.
- Supreme Screen SPF 50+ Hydrating Facial Sunscreen: A broad spectrum SPF50+ three in one: moisturiser, SPF and primer. For all skin types that need a hydration boost.
I’ve just re-purchased my second bottle of Queen Screen, as I’m obsessed with its milky light serum-like texture, that absorbs into my skin perfectly post-moisturizer and pre-makeup application. I will say though, that it did take some time for me to get used to the sheen the product gives off, and some days I do find I need to pop a primer on over the top of Queen Screen, just to reduce some of that shine #oilygalforlife. The price you pay for sun protection, right? It’s also very important to note I’ve experienced ZERO white cast wearing this skinscreen, and my husband has been known to “borrow” this little bottle often.
Adore Beauty have recently come on board with Ultra Violette as an official retailer, offering free express delivery and two free samples on orders over $50, with my goodies only taking two or three business days to arrive in Tassie – no mean feat!
If you’re a little unsure of when to apply sunscreen in your skincare routine, and the dosage required for adequate sun protection, peep this page and maybe add it your favourites for future reference. Interestingly, Australia has the most rigorous testing standards for sunscreen, so you’re definitely in the best of hands.
sunscreen -one less thing to worry about!
