Summer truly is picking up, isn’t it? The UK is having quite the heatwave this year so what’s important is to remember to drink plenty of liquids but also to protect your skin with UV protection. UV care isn’t a new phenomenon, but it seems in recent years the effects of UV damage is becoming more and more evident. What’s needed is a high SPF and waterproof sunscreen that works around the clock to tackle sweat, friction, beach life and the pool. I’ve tried my fair share of Japanese sunblocks but my absolute favourite has to be Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk for Sensitive Skin. It holds true to its name; perfect, and here’s why…
This Hypoallergenic Sunscreen Is For Sensitive Skin and Babies
I think the only thing this bottle can’t do is fly! Well actually… it is flying off the shelves, and for a good reason. Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk for Sensitive Skin is a gentle UV protection for all skin types, but in particular for sensitive skin and for babies and toddlers. The hypoallergenic formula means there are no added colours, fragrances, alcohol or parabens and is mineral oil free. It’s so gentle that I don’t hesitate to use it on my little one who has just turned one. She hasn’t had a reaction or rash like she has with other brands, so it gives me peace of mind. For me too, I am prone to acne breakouts and find the skin on my face is sensitive, but with Anessa Perfect Milk I haven’t had a breakout yet and it goes on without any reactions.
Not Just A Matte Sunscreen – 50% Moisturizing Skincare Ingredients
It’s just as moisturizing as top brand moisturizers such as Hada Labo Premium, leaving you with a beautiful matte finish that’s good enough to use as a primer or just on its own. It does all of this whilst giving you full SPF 50+ and PA++++. It was recently reformulated with an advanced aqua booster EX technology which means the UV veil protection spreads more evenly and works even harder to protect your skin when it comes into contact with sweat or water! It’s magic! It also boasts friction protection with a unique powder ingredient that makes a slick veil compatible with your skin to prevent it coming off when rubbed. It does however come off easily with soap and water in the shower. Now that’s what I call perfect!
Sunscreens and Environmental Damage
Thanks to my marine biologist friends, I’m now aware that sunscreens are polluting our reefs and killing our sea life, so I’m making a conscious effort to try to use a sunscreen that is better for our earth. Anessa ticks that box with its environmental damage protection formula. Most sunblocks use Oxybenzone and Octinoxateand Octocrylene, which happen to be the main culprits of coral reef bleaching, but Anessa perfect milk doesn’t use any of that. With Anessa, you get full UV protection and protect our seas!
How To Use Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk for Sensitive Skin
First, make sure to shake, shake, shake the bottle to ensure the formula is mixed evenly, then squeeze the desired amount from the precision tip nozzle. Apply it evenly to your face, neck and body. As with all sunscreens, you can re-apply to maintain protection. Unlike the bulky sunscreen bottles you get in the UK, Anessa Perfect Milk holds 60ml in a nice, dinky bottle so you can pop it in your bag to use anytime, anywhere!
I’m hooked! Anessa Perfect UV Mild Milk for Sensitive Skin is a new family favourite. Compared to other brands it is a little more expensive, however you absolutely get what you pay for; perfection in a bottle. If you’re in search of a hypoallergenic, moisturizing yet mattifying, super strong UV protection, environmentally friendly sunscreen… then this is the winner! Check out Zak Zakka for a bottle (or two!) and stay safe this summer in your new favourite sunscreen.
