[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I took this SPF gel with me to Stockholm last week to test it – yes, it was actually sunny in Stockholm so I’ve given it a good go and actually really like it. It’s not quite as lightweight as some UV gels I’ve tried but it’s so much of an improvement on other textures that I feel I am being picky by saying that.

The reason that it’s not quite as air light is that it has sweat protection built in so you can very easily exercise in this without worrying that you’re sweating off your protection. Better yet, it has a strong skin care element so you’ll get some decent hydration with ingredients such as Uji tea, Licorice root and Camellia leaf extract. For an SPF 50 I think this texture is as good as you can get which is no surprise from a Japanese brand. There are other options – an SPF30 (on offer for £26.30 instead of £33 HERE), otherwise you’ll find the SPF50 HERE for £38.

A big shout out for the Treatment Cleansing Oil – what a delight! It’s beautiful to look at for a start but performs as well as it looks. You give the bottle a good shake so that everything is ready for your skin and just three drops will sort you out for skin cleansing and make up removal. I’ll give a quick run down of the key ingredients – angelica leaf extract (first ingredient), rice ferment, squalane, olive oil and coconut oil. There’s a little kick of eucalyptus with grapefruit and lemon that make it feel like a refreshing cleanse – I found myself really inhaling those notes. It’s £42 which feels okay for the quality and the use enjoyment. It’s HERE. Althetis is exceptional skin care – I’d like to see it in wider distribution to get the recognition it deserves.
