Sunscreen formulas just get better and better – remember the old high SPF sunscreens that left a white cast on your face? Even at SPF50, this doesn’t leave any traces of casting and works really well under make-up.

Ingredient-of-the-moment, Baobab oil, soothes away irritations, while Capuacu butter and Buriti oil softens and protects the skin. It also contains my favourite ingredient – Argan oil – so that’s a personal plus. The formula uses a dry-oil to hold the micronized mineral filters although it looks just like a cream.

When I tested it on my hand, ProSun Protection Sunscreen (£20) came out white to start with and I had a little ‘oh no’ moment, but as soon as I massaged it into my skin the white casting was gone. It smells quite fruity – although I think I got a waft of Play-Doh. The formula is very moisturising – I’d probably be looking at using a matte or semi-matte base over this as you could end up with just a tad too much ‘glow’. On the skin, it doesn’t feel oily or weighty and I’d recommend it for dryer skin types looking for high protection in an organic formulation.

It’s launching this month, although when I checked on line it wasn’t there yet, so in the next couple of weeks, you’ll be able to find it HERE.
