This lightweight, non-chalky lotion acts both as a broad spectrum sunscreen (SPF 25) and as a soothing moisturiser with powerful anti-ageing properties.
The sunscreen has a light touch and absorbs very well, unlike other sunscreens that leave behind a sticky or greasy film of residue on the skin. Its subtle natural rose fragrance and sheer tint (of a rosy beige tone) blends in seamlessly with a matte finish and works well as a versatile sunscreen-moisturiser that can be applied before makeup. (Apply at least 15 minutes before sun exposure to ensure full protection.)
