The sun lotion contains 'nourishing antioxidants' and hydrating particles that help to keep the skin feeling and looking healthy, even while out in the sun when skin tends to sweat out all the good stuff - gross, but true. The aftersun contains cooling aloe vera, as well as ingredients to help maintain and prolong your tan when the sun goes in (or you go home.) These may not sound like exceptional or revolutionary functions, but what I do love about these two products is their suprisingly light formula, absorbing into the skin like a gel rather than a thick cream. It takes only a matter of seconds for the skin to drink the lotions up, leaving smooth limbs and a very delicate tropical scent - you certainly don't end up smelling like you've taken a dip in a carton of Um Bongo. I don't think I've ever tried such a light formula that's actually been a pleasure to use (and re-apply,) especially thanks to the mild scent that gets you in the mood for a cocktail. If you're after a more traditional formula, they also offer a range of sun creams and fab lipglosses that feature essential SPF to help protect your delicate bits. If you do use any sun products, please make sure you use the maximum protection you can find (no lower than 30 in my opinion,) and re-apply every couple of hours to make sure you remain protected. Stay safe kids!
