I think I may have found my perfect every day SPF product. When I was in Bloomingdales in New York I got talking to the Space NK sales assistant about the Cane & Austin Ultra Sheer Weightless Sunscreen SPF50 and was in love with it before I even tried it. And then when I tried it, I loved it even more!
Every dermatologist I speak to tells me that for ultimate protection from UVA and UVB damage, I need to wear at least SPF 30 daily, and ideally SPF50. Because I really do want ultimate protection (for my face) and because I like being teacher’s pet (!!), I generally opt for SPF50, and this one from Cane & Austin is amazing.
True to its name, it is very sheer and definitely weightless. In fact, it is so weightless that sometimes I am not sure I have put it on. I pop it in after moisturiser and before foundation and everything works really well together. Here’s it is just after it is applied:
The Cane & Austin SPF50 is completely transparent and leaves no residue at all. It also had added skincare ingredients – anti-oxidants (green tea, vitamin E and Co-Q10) plus organic UV absorbers. It contains no oil, fragrance, alcohol or parabens. It is basically perfect!
