Sun Sense SPF50 Face and Lip Products

SunSense recently sent me three of their new reformulated products to try. I received Anti-ageing face spf50, Anti-ageing face matte spf50 and lip balm spf50.   


SunSense is the UK’s number one prescribed sunscreen, as it has the highest sun protection factor, and protects against both UVA and UVB radiation. They are also the number one suncare formulated to Australian standards.

“Their extensive range has products for everyone, and has been specially formulated using high quality ingredients that quickly bond to skin. Each product is unique in its formulation, and some have recently been reformulated to meet stringent new laws on the labelling of sunscreens in Australia.”

Product What I liked about both the anti-ageing face and face matte, were as well as being light weight and spf50, they didn’t leave my skin oily or with a white sheen like a lot of high factor products have done!

The matte version was my favourite as I love a complete shine free matte finish on my face.

The lotions quickly absorbed into my skin leaving it soft and smooth, with no nasty smell due to them being fragrance free. Very simple to use too, simply shake well and apply a small amount over the face, neck and chest.

As well as providing anti-ageing benefits and high protection, they also contain AHAs, vitamins E and B3, helping to fight signs of lines and wrinkles.


The lip balm was a surprise, I thought it was going to leave my lips tacky and uncomfortable due to the high sun protection but I was wrong. The balm glided on nicely with the attached applicator and left my lips silky smooth  thanks to the added vitamin E.

Treating My Tootsies

If you are a mum, you probably understand the need for me to sort my feet out!

My feet have always been so soft and I remember finding it so odd watching my mum use pumice stones on her feet due to having such hard skin, but now it all makes sense!

I am clearly on my feet a lot more these days with my toddler, and I rarely have time or the energy to pamper myself after my daily showers like I used to, so I’m now in the position where the soles of my feet are cracking and peeling (gross I know).

So when Premier Healthcare & Hygiene Ltd gave me the chance to try CCS Foot Cream I obviously said hell yeah! DSC_1386

Beauty Within Blog: Clarins Eyeshadow

IMG_20140418_180044Todays look is from wearing Clarins Forest Eye Quartet. I love the silky smooth texture of the shadows, it is very long lasting and doesn’t crease on the eye lid.

You can create different looks with this palette as there are 4 shades, gold, khaki green, brown and black, very versatile for day looks and can smoke it up for evenings.
