These are my must-have holiday companions. I’ve used Institut Esthederm ever since it launched in the UK and haven’t been able to use anything else since. I have never, ever burned with this formula – which works differently than other traditional sunscreens. Bottom line is that it stimulates melanin so that your skin protects itself. It’s also got a whack of anti-ageing ingredients so while lying in the sun might be the opposite of anti-ageing, the ingredients counteract what the sun is doing in terms of skin wrinkling and photo ageing.
It’s a tricky one this; I love being in the sun but I don’t want all the ageing associations that come with it. I think you are either a believer in this range or you are not – it’s really hard to suggest to people they should use a product with no traditional SPF in it, but I do believe in it and it works for me.
I haven’t used the UV in Cellium Bronzant before; it’s a cooling spray that you use to top up and rehydrate the skin rather than as a full-on sun product. This range is really expensive; it’s about £40 for the body products, but it is something I do and will continue to spend money on (although for clarity’s sake the above are samples I was sent).
