Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous weekend in the sunshine. I had an amazing day out with some girlies today, we decided to go for a picnic down the local marina and goshh the weather was beautiful. Literally was so happy that i could sit out in this beautiful weather and catch a few rays! Absolutely love my sunkissed glow at the moment...don't want it to ever fade haha!
So, to maintain a tan one of the vital components is to moisturise and it is something i have always made sure to do on a regular basis and also when i have a tan. I was recently sent the 'Bioderma Photoderm Apres Soleil' which is a very refreshing after sun milk. Since we have been having such lovely weather it has been a perfect After Sun product to use. This one by Bioderma is absolutely lovely and so i wanted to do a review for you all!
So you all may know Bioderma best for their very famous Micellar cleansers, however, they also do other skincare goodies which i have reviewed HERE but also sun protection! You can get an all-year round photoprotective care for you skin with the Bioderma Photoderm range. They offer sun protection, self tanners and of course after sun which i will be reviewing today. Depending on your sin type, the intensity of the sunshine Photoderm provides the appropriate solution for your needs, to protect your skin against harmful sun damage. At the end of the day we all love to sit out in the sun and get a tan during the summer time...we just need to make sure we are using the right products to protect our face and body.
This moisturising milk works to rehydrate your skin that has been dried out by sun exposure throughout the day. It then also prepares your skin for further exposure by optimising its natural anti-UV protection and maintaining a balanced hydration level. The exclusive patented cellular BIOprotection® complex effectively shields the skin against risk of cell damage. The moisturising milk is extremely smoothing, refreshing and decongests the skin after sun exposure. It has a light and easy to apply texture which does not leave a white cast like some other after suns do and makes sure you skin curbs skin peeling.
The 'Bioderm Photoderm Apres Soleil Refreshing After Sun Milk' has got to be one of the best After Sun lotions i have used in a long time. I love the formulation behind it and how it rehydrates the skin, prolongs your tan and how overall refreshing it is. In the past i have used After Sun lotions which have had a pretty thick consistency which i feel did nothing to my skin other than leave a white cast haha. It has been lovely to use throughout this little heatwave we are having in the UK, i applied it this evening and it absorbed into my skin quite quickly and after a few hours my skin now feels really moisturised and smells kind of summery haha. The scent is pretty basic but overall reminds me of summer...you know that summer vacation smell?! I also love the fact it is a 2-in-1 product that can be used on the body but also on your face also. In the past when i have used After Sun lotions i found they kind of broke my skin out but it has not yet been the case with this little gem.
Hope you enjoyed this Bioderma review! I would love to know your thoughts on the product and whether you have used any of the Bioderma Photoderm range. Also, pretty please leave any recommendations for sun protection products that you have really been loving using throughout the summer.
