Super Sunblock

 At the end of a long, hot summer's day on the beach, I quite easily might have gone through at least two entire 200ml spray bottles of SPF50. Especially when working with skins that don't usually see much sun. Dis-Chem consistently delivers effective and affordable solutions for my kit. Officially we're in autumn, but if you know Cape Town weather, you'll understand that nobody wants to let go of summer too soon...
 And what makes a summer sunset really awesome, is not having that stingy itch of sunburn.
I have used the Luv that Sun aerosol spray for quite a few summers, and I'm actually quite fed up with how difficult it is to spray: my fingers cramp up trying to squeeze even the teensiest bit of sunscreen out of these sprays sometimes. The four above are new, and I have been struggling with one of them...I'm considering returning these and asking them to please either sort out or discontinue. The actual product is brilliant...when it ever comes out!
 I had seen Sun Lab on the shelves and had the aerosol in my sun protection kit a few times ( it's an old makeup artist favourite...but I found the aerosol too harsh, with a high alcohol content), but I had not experienced their creams and Transparent Spray. My favourites are SensaiPiz Buin and Tropitone and newly discovered Bioderma. However, I had tried a tiny sample of a Sun Lab SPF50 cream from a Ruby Box, and found it quite satisfactory. The Sport SPF50 is far more greasy, and great for limbs and torso, but not a makeup artist's favourite. Sadly, as a makeup artist you have to fork out the cash for a really good, photo-friendly, matte-ish sunscreen. I'm sticking with my Sensai, Bioderma and Piz Buin for face. But I'm certain that the Sun Lab Transparent Spray will be a staple in my outdoors skincare kit for body sun protection.
