Even though my family gets nicely tanned during summer, I stay pale the whole year, which had always been a big problem for me. About three years ago, I started to accept that I could do whatever I want, but there wasn’t any natural way that I would be tanned. Therefore suncream is a must for me during the hot season. Of course, suncream is essential and necessary for everyone and I often get really angry when my boyfriend thinks he doesn’t need it and shows up completely red after a few hours. For me it is a question between staying pale and becoming tomato red.


I must admit that I am not the expert when it comes to sun protecting creams, but as I have tested a few brands and therefore experience what worked for me and what didn’t. I tried everything out from cheap to expensive and I must admit that these sun care products from the brand Darphin, which is a  are simply amazing. The protection is fantastic as it keeps me protected for at least 2hours, which most of the suncreams don’t. In addition, the smell is really good. I think that sun cream always smells like suncream wether in a good or a bad way. The Darphin protecting cream on the other hand simply smells good, like a random cream. That was a point I definitely appreciated.

Another point is that you can buy one cream which will be for your face and one for your body. This has become important for me too as I don’t like when my face is so shiny and smells like sun cream. The sun protection cream for the body  is a lightweight cream which has SPF 30  made out of karanja-Oil and Brazilian Algae. The protecting cream for the face has also vitamin E in it. The third product is a shiny gold oil which leaves your skin with just that little glow and shimmer that it actually needs. I really enjoy this rather playful product as you can also use it, to enhance several body parts when going out.

I would love to know what you think of these products and if you would try them out too? Which products are you using to protect your skin in the hot season? Let me know in the comments below. xoxo
