Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield
I have a confession, I very rarely use SPF, whether at home in grey and gloomy England or on holiday in sometimes intense sunshine (oops!) but I want to change that as I know that looking after your skin is obviously important and protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is also very important to help prevent skin cancer and for anti-ageing reasons. However, I do have sensitive skin prone to eczema which can sometimes react to SPF so I am wary to try them, although I have tried a few products from Dermalogica before and loved them! 

I have the *Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 (£39.40, 50ml) which is part of the 'ultra calming' range and I have already reviewed a few samples of this range on my blog if you wanted to read more. It contains the exclusive oat complex, including oat and botanical extracts to help minimise discomfort, itching and burning. It also provides hydration and it's free from artificial fragrances, colour and parabens. 

I love the packaging, it is very compact and small so it will be perfect for travelling! It has a runny sun lotion consistency which applies smoothly and it is fairly fast absorbing although it does feel a little greasy on the skin. It doesn't really have a scent and most importantly it doesn't irritate my skin! The best way to use this product, I have found anyway, is to apply it with my foundation brush - it means that my hands don't become greasy, the product is applied evenly and it almost acts as a makeup primer too. 

The weather in England recently as been amazing *on and off because we can't just have a whole week or even more of nice weather, that would be asking far too much* but on the sunny days, I've been wearing this SPF under my makeup and on makeup free skin and loving it. My skin doesn't really burn anyway but it's good to feel like I'm protecting my skin. I'm really happy with it and if you have sensitive skin then this is a great one to try out, unless you have very oily skin! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5. 

Have you tried this SPF? Have you tried anything from Dermalogica?
