Aesop fans will be glad to know that Aesop’s summer skin care range offers more than its usual excellence in skin care expertise.
They start off their Summer Beauty Essentials with the new Protective Body Lotion SPF50. The light-weight sunscreen provides up to four hours’ water resistance, and it’s suitable for most skin types. It contains chemical filters that effect high-level broad-spectrum protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays, complemented by skin-nourishing Vitamin E.
It also contains silica, a naturally occurring mineral, which absorbs excess oil leaving skin feeling exceptionally soft and smooth. Adding to that, it has essential oils of Spearmint and Lemon, which gives a pleasant aroma.
To use it, all you have to do it is to massage the product generously into uncovered skin fifteen minutes prior to sun exposure. Like most sunscreens, it needs to be reapplied to maintain protection. Thus, to keep the level of protection up, reapply every four hours and after perspiring, swimming or towelling dry.
The Protective Body Lotion SPF50 is packaged in a convenient 150ml pump bottle. It’s available from Aesop signature stores, counters in selected department stores and at Aesop Online. It retails at RM227.
