3 Sunscreens Worth The Try

Today's blog post actually fits in with the weather for once! It's SO hot at the moment, I'm basically melting in my room with about 28°C in here!? Sometimes I just wish we had a pool in our garden... *sigh*

Anyway! As you can read by the title, this post is all about the three sunscreens that I think are worth trying. My skin, especially my face, is very sensitive when it comes to the sunshine and these hot temperatures. So I usually tend to go for a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, just to make sure my skin is protected enough.

However, I recently read an article about choosing the right sunscreens from different brands and that article said that everything higher than SPF of 30 doesn't really work anymore? I'm not sure if that's true or not but since reading that I make sure to not use anything over SPF 30.

So let's start with the sunscreens I have here now, shall we?

Green People Scent Free Sun Lotion SPF 30*
This is the only sunscreen I'm currently using for my arms, legs and basically for the rest of my body whenever I'm going out into direct sunlight. The thing I like about this is that it's scent free and great for sensitive skin. You only need a tiny amount of this and it also absorbs very quickly, which is always a plus for a sunscreen! It doesn't leave the skin greasy or sticky at all so it's quite comfortable to apply. There's also a matching Hydrating After Sun Moisturiser for Sensitive Skin, which I absolutely adore! It's very cooling on the skin and feels amazing after a day out in the sun!

Dr Rimpler Sun Face Cream SPF 30*
I had already seen quite a few products from Dr Rimpler before I got the chance to try this in my most recent Blogger Club Box. It's a sunscreen for the face only, which was quite interesting to me as most other sunscreens focus on the whole body, face included, while as this product focuses on the face only. As I mentioned before I want to focus on my face as well when it comes to protecting my skin from the sun. Some of you may know by now that I have a form of Rosacea on my nose and especially during Summer I try my best to keep it out of the sun or to protect it as well as possible. And with this sunscreen for the face, it's gotten so much simpler to do exactly that!

Phyris Specials UV Add On SPF 30 Serum*
In April, I got the chance to try my first ever Miabox, which I did a whole post about, and this UV Add On was included as well. I always apply this right before applying the Dr Rimpler Face Cream - serum before cream, that's the way I like to keep it with my skincare, also with my sunscreens. This doesn't feel greasy or sticky on the skin either but it makes it feel more protected and somehow safe. It's probably just my mind telling me to feel good because I applied some sunscreen but it does make a difference to me whether I'm just using this serum, just the face cream or both. I find both to be the perfect combination for my skin type at the moment.

So these are the three sunscreens I'm using at the moment and I'm really happy I got the chance to try them! I do have two or three other sunscreens from the drugstore but they just don't work as good for me as these three do.
