The majority of French people uses drugstore sun care products, as this Ambre Solaire Golden Protect Lotion from Garnier (£14 at Boots and currently at 50% off…).
It’s not a bad idea to use cheap sun cream, because we tend to not use enough product when it’s too expensive. And we need a lot of it to be really protected from the UVA and UVB of the sun. There is no excuse to skip the sun cream application, as it does not protect us from being tanned!
(Let’s use this article to revise our basics with sun cream: we need to apply it on dry and proper skin, every two hours and everytime we leave the pool / the sea. We should keep the cream away from the sun and should throw the tube away after 6 months.)
I bought this Garnier Lotion because it was one of the less expensive one with SPF30 when I was in Spain. I had no idea that the “golden” part of its name refers to shimmer incorporated in the composition. But when I realised that, I did no mind, as I was in holiday.
This sun Golden Protect lotion is very good. It smells like holiday for me because of its “sun cream” smell meeting monoi oil. It is easy to apply, it does not leave the skin sticky or white-ish. My skin was very soft after using it, I wanted to fondle myself!
This 200mL bottle is perfect for family. I used it every two hours every day with my mom in Andalousia for a little bit less than 2 weeks, and we did not finish it. Neither me or my mom had a sun burn, and we were definitely tanned by the end of the holiday. This product is not perfect anyway because it does not prevent us from being allergic to the sun, so I do recommend you to use sun-preparing capsules as my Phytobronz.
My review: (5 / 5)
