Cool for the summer

The weather gods have promised us nice sunny weather with the possibility of even a heatwave this week. Unaccustomed as we are to incredible sun, even the mildest of days requires a great SPF. I have rounded up some of my favourite ones for organic fanatics, sporty types, luxury lovers and wriggly kids.

Avène’s Sport Fluid SPF50+ (€22) is specifically developed for people who play sports and those with sensitive skin. The long lasting, high-protection fluid is highly water and sweat-resistant. Enriched with an antioxidant complex, it protects skin against oxidative stress caused by both sun exposure and by physical exertion. The oil-free light texture of the Sport Fluid SPF50+ is refreshing and breathable with no sticky residue.

Avène is also continuing its commitment to minimising its environmental impact through the Skin Protect Ocean Respect initiative. Using just four key sun filters, Avène has reduced not only the number but the concentration of these filters in order to minimise the impact on marine life without sacrificing the efficacy and long-lasting protection of the product.

Rigorous ingredient selection has also led to more biodegradable formulas which are more difficult for marine life to digest. These biodegradable formulas can be found across several of Avène’s sun care range.

Uriage Bariésun Spray SPF 50+ (€18.50) is a high protection sun lotion which has been enriched in Uriage Thermal Water which provides moisturising and protective properties. This lotion is hypoallergenic and designed for sensitive skins.

It protects the skin from the UVA and UVB rays, free radicals and prevents the skin from drying out. Waterproof, it has a very practical spray bottle that you can carry anywhere.


Uriage Bariésun SPF50+ (€19.50) is an invisible stick that is perfect for ensuring you are protected in all those hard to reach and sensitive areas – your ears, nose, nape and feet. This is ideal for your bag or back pocket, to keep with you throughout the day and top up whenever and wherever you feel necessary.

Its easy and precise application delivers an invisible finish. Its new complex of latest-generation filters provides very high protection against UVA and UVB rays.


Eminence Lilikoi Mineral Defence Sport Sunscreen SPF 30 (€59) contains lilikoi (passion fruit) seed oil which is rich in vitamin C and helps with visible signs of ageing, raspberry seed oil another strong injection of antioxidant rich vitamin C and aloe vera which alleviates the appearance of damage from sun exposure and hydrates the skin. Zinc oxide is the natural barrier that blocks harmful rays.

An easy-to-apply sport formulation for your face and body, this SPF 30 mineral sunscreen is non-greasy and water-resistant for up to 40 minutes.

It’s highly effective for outdoor activities like swimming and high-performance sports where perspiration can impact standard sunscreen efficacy, this zinc oxide sunscreen protects from head-to-toe.

Lilikoi Mineral Défense Sport Sunscreen is a water resistant sport formulation which helps keep your skin protected from UV damage, even when swimming or sweating.

Antioxidants minimise the appearance of accelerated ageing. It delivers a lightweight finish with a fresh, natural look to the skin.


Nivea Sun Kids Protect & Care Coloured Roll-on (€9.99) provides children with highly effective UVA/UVB protection wherever they go. With its child-friendly handy roll-on format for easy and playful application, it is simple and quick to apply on the skin. Nivea's innovative formula works immediately and ensures reliable, highly effective UVA and UVB protection. A fast-absorbing, non-sticky formula also makes applying sunscreen fun for kids.


Another handy one is Nivea Sun Kids Trigger Spray (€21.59). The fun spray application is a simple and quick way to apply lotion to your child’s skin. They will be well-protected from the sun’s harmful rays as the gentle, yet effective formula provides immediate high UVA/UVB protection.
