Living in the Highlands of Scotland, sun cream has never been something I had to worry much about. With paper white skin I always used it on a nice day but nice days aren't very often. This last few weeks have brought us warmer days and more sun that I remember in a long time! Always keen to protect my skin, I have been using ERiiS daily now that the weather is nice.
The idea behind ERiiS is that it offers triple protection against UVA, UVB and infra-red damage unlike traditional sun protection products. ERiiS is available between SPF 6 and SPF 50. I opted for 15, medium protection, because I am rarely exposed to the sun!
ERiiS is paraben free, allergen free and water resistant. It is also suitable for all skin types.
So firstly, the packaging. The bottle is simple yet sturdy and the pump means easy and mess free application. I have had this bottle in my handbag for 2 weeks now with no spillage or damage to the bottle.
I have been using this product on myself, my partner and his 7 year old daughter. It is a lovely creamy consistency and leaves skin feeling hydrated and smooth. This product doesn't have that 'sun cream' smell and instead is almost scent free, with a mild and fresh smell to it.
The cream is gentle and has left no irritation, meaning it's fantastic for all the family. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave any residue. This is great for me as I have long hair and hate when it sticks to the cream on my back and shoulders.
I have been applying this to the whole family every 4 hours or so and this is keeping our pale, scottish skin burn free! It's a lovely product to use and has impressive ingredients. I'm fully satisfied and would purchase again.
ERiiS for Sun is £19.99 and will soon be available from Superdrug.com
