Institut Esthederm Tan Enhancing Lotion & After-Sun Repair

This Summer I've been really careful to avoid the sun, but during a week long vacation at the fiancé's cottage, I couldn't help but spend some time in the sun. I made sure to bring along Institut Esthederm's Tan Enhancing Lotion* & After-Sun Repair*, which aim to repair skin after being exposed to the sun's rays. 

Institut Esthederm Tan Enhancing Lotion & After-Sun Repair

Tan Enhancing Lotion: 

"Tan Enhancing Lotion for the body moisturizes and calms the skin after exposure to the sun.
Delicately perfumed, its texture is absorbed quickly and leaves skin supple and velvety-soft.
It prolongs your tan, helping your skin look luminous and radiant." - Institut Estherderm

This lotion is thin and runny, and feels very soothing & cooling on my skin. This formula absorbs very quickly, and also acts as a light body moisturizer. The scent is quite faint, but it is reminiscent of that traditional sunscreen scent. Since I was wearing SPF 50 everyday, I didn't develop much of a tan. I mostly turned toward this product to heal and hydrate my skin, which it did an excellent job at!

After-Sun Repair Tan Enhancing Anti-Wrinkle Cream:

"This soothing anti-wrinkle repair cream rehydrates and calms post-sun exposure heat discomfort. Its fresh, fluid texture restructures while smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.Skin is regenerated for the following day and its tanning capacity is stimulated." - Institut Esthederm

This cream is thicker than the Tan Enhancing Lotion, and it's meant for use on the face, neck, and décolleté. While on vacation, I would apply this every night after removing my makeup and cleansing my face. Even though I was wearing sunscreen daily, I still wanted to make sure that my skin was being pampered each day. This formula does just what it says it does - rehydrates and calms the skin after being out in the sun. If you have a bit of a sunburn, this lotion will help to soothe your damaged skin, and it won't clog up your pores.

I highly recommend checking out both products from Institut Esthederm! Summer is still going strong, and I know that I'll be using these after-sun products daily this Summer. I also think that these products would be excellent to travel with on vacation (pop them in your checked baggage). How do you like to pamper your skin after a day in the sun?

  1. I run outdoors a lot, so I need something like this! I use an after sun lotion by Yves Rocher right now, but when that runs out, I'll be looking into trying something else. Victoria Ess
