I remember the time when using sunscreen was not a priority at people’s lives, but we suffered the consequences of it. Even growing up in a hot country such as Brazil.
It was just when I went back from an all-day-long baking in the sun without any protection, and my skin started to burn and peel off that I found out something was wrong about it.
What did I learn from this? Sunscreen is essential and it’s extremely important to use it regularly. Of course, we do need extra protection as well such as a hat, sunglasses and a bit of shadow.
Lesson learnt, I have been trying different types of sunscreen along the years and I confess to be a bit fussy about it. I don’t buy the usually pricey one, but I do prefer brands that offer good ratings and as natural as possible ingredients.
You can imagine how exciting it was to know I would be able to review Delph’s – Sun Lotion and After Sun Lotion. Delph is a Vegan (not tested in animals) suncare range, in which the lotion allow tanning whilst moisturising, replenishing and hydrating the skin during exposure to the sun.
Something that quite got my attention was the fact it’s also one of the cheapest sunscreens in the market –SPF15 | SPF30 | SPF50 150ml tubes priced from £2.79. You can find Delph sun lotions at most of pharmacies and Amazon as well.
How was my experience so far?
Sun Lotion -SPF 30 – This is the SPF usually recommended by the dermatologists. But I do like to go for the SPF 50, especially on my face.
I started using this sunscreen during my holidays abroad where the weather was around mid-20’s. Quite hot for this time of the year.
What I usually do is applying the product on skin before the exposure in the sun. We had long days out, but there was no swimming included in this holiday – sad, I know – so I couldn’t test it on water for a longer time.
However, it handled well a long day exposure under the sun with few extra applications along the day, of course.
Remember that it’s not recommended to be long hours in the sun, anyway. But if you are sightseeing like we did, and need a bit of protection, it’s certainly a good match.
The smell is subtle and pleasant, and its texture is not greasy, oily or sticky (even when you sweat). It works more like a moisturising cream. I got a bit of tan and I felt protected during the day.
Delph Sun Lotion SPF 30 provides:
- Medium sun protection from UVA/UVB
- Tan and moisturise
- Water resistance
After Sun Lotion with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E – I never have thought about After Sun Lotion before, but I believe that it’s a quite interesting alternative for days you spend the time under sun and seawater. This product promised to moisturises and soothes the skin after exposure to the sun.
I was quite excited to try this one especially because of its ingredients –Vitamin E; that actually help to prevent peeling and prolongs the life your tan.
So, after a long-deserved shower in the end of the day, I was up to apply this sun lotion to re-hydrate my skin and take advantage of all properties of Aloe Vera that leaves the skin softer and smoother.
I absolutely love this product. From top to bottom it’s one of the best moisturisers I have tried and I can’t believe how affordable this product is!
It calmed down my skin quite quickly and it has a lovely fragrance as well. Delph is suitable for the whole family indeed! I will definitely keep this after sun lotion in skincare routine and make the most of its sun lotion as well.
Not to mention that Delph products also got nearly 100% green marks at the Sun Protection Ethical ranking.
