The weather has been absolutely gorgeous this week in Ottawa, and I've been spending a lot of time by the pool. To stay protected while in the sun I've been relying on Bioderma's Photoderm Spray SPF 40* & to repair my skin at the end of the day I've been using Bioderma's Refreshing After-Sun Milk*. Both products have been thoroughly impressing me, keep reading to find out why I think that you should add these to your beach bag!
Bioderma's Photoderm Spray SPF 40 comes packaged in a convenient spray bottle. Simply spray onto your skin, rub in, and you're good to go! This white cream has a classic sunscreen scent to it, but the scent doesn't linger for too long. This formula rubs in easily, leaving no white traces behind! This bottle has the label from the Canadian Dermatology Association as a recognized sun protection product, and guarantees high UVA/UVB protection against the harmful effects of the sun. You will need to reapply after swimming, towel drying, perspiring heavily, or washing.
Bioderma's Photoderm Refreshing After-Sun Milk comes packaged in a blue plastic tube. After you've spent some time in the sun, your skin will benefit from added moisturization, even if you didn't burn. This formula from Bioderma is enriched with emollient and soothing agents: allantoin and ginkgo biloba, which soothe feelings of overheating. Glycerine and Shea rehydrate, restructure and prevent dryness caused by sun exposure. There's a faint fragrance to this formula, which smells quite calming to me. I find that this formula feels cooling and very refreshing on my skin. I didn't burn (thanks to the Photoderm Spray SPF 40!), but I still appreciated the repairing and calming properties of this After-Sun Milk!
If you're planning to spend any amount of time outside this Summer, then I think that you would love this duo! I'm keeping the Photoderm Spray SPF 40 in my pool/beach bag, and the After-Sun Milk is staying on my night stand.
