Ultrabland. One step cure for very dry flaky skin. On the risk of sounding a bit farfetched, I have to put it out there, that this put my skin at ease on first application. Not the most pleasant smelling, but it is wonderful for what it does.

They seem to have every type of formulation, brush wands in their range. This one in particular I think is my favorite. It’s all about the applicator.

The best thing, it doesn’t uncurl my lashes. I find a lot of heavier formulations do that. Priced at £12.50, Boots. Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 50+. Inspite having a high SPF factor, this lotion is so light. I usually stick to SPF 15-30 because the higher the factor, the ickier it seems to feel. Not with this one. No flashbacks, no white-cast. It just sinks in. You know that powdery-ness you can feel on your fingers sometimes? There is none of that. Incredibly comfortable to wear. Hope everyone is doing well.
Happy Easter to those who celebrate it xx
