My skin burns quite easily as I rather pale and so I need to make sure that I take good sun protection product away with me when I go. I like Korres as a brand because their products contain plenty of natural ingredients. I couldn't help but be attracted by the Sunscreen Emulsion Yoghurt Sunscreen, even though it sounded a little bit odd.
What does the product do?
The product has been designed for those with fair or sensitive complexions like mine. It promises to protect the skin from both UVA and UVB radiation from the sun to stop you from burning and to stop the sun from causing your skin to age prematurely. The inclusion of yoghurt nourishes and strengthens the skin, as well as freshening the skin and allowing the skin to retain its moisture levels.
The product is water proof and it offers its sun protection using natural ingredients instead of using chemical ingredients so it's better for your skin. It also contains Aloe in order to soothe, comfort and moisturise the skin as well as keeping the skin looking younger for longer. It is suitable for use both on the face and on the body. You can you purchase the product with an SPF of 20, 30 and 50.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a white plastic bottle and it has a bronze wrapper around it which gives some more information about the product. It has a white pump dispenser at the top which you push down on in order to release the product and this is protected by a small clear lid. The product will cost you around £18 for 150ml of the product and it can be bought from large department stores and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The lotion is easily dispensed as you push down on the lid although only a small amount is dispensed each time. This can make the process of applying the cream a little longer but I think it makes you do a more thorough job. It comes out in a controlled way so you're not going to cover everything and everyone around you as you apply it. One of the first things that you will notice about this product is the delicious aroma. It is one of the loveliest sun screens I've used with regard to the aroma and it smells fruity and sweet just like a citrus yoghurt. The aroma is strong and long lasting. It is summery and perfect for holidays although it did attract a few bees.
You are supposed to apply the product 30 minutes before going out in the sun. It has quite an oily finish which is what you would expect with a sun product so this doesn't put me off but you can definitely tell that you're wearing it. It doesn't make you feel greasier or any more unclean that any other sun product does and it didn't cause my skin any irritations. One of the best things about this product is that the ingredients are completely natural. It's Zinc Oxide that does the protecting in this lotion and I must say that it protected me really well. I have fair skin which gets burnt quite easily but I found that factor 30 in this product stopped my skin from burning or getting red and sore. It also allowed me to tan a little bit but not much. My skin feel hydrated by the product and was left feeling soft with no dryness or tightness.
All in all, this is a lovely product which protected my skin well and stopped it from burning. It smells completely delicious, is easy to use and left my skin feeling hydrated and soft. It's also good to know that it's free from the usual chemical nasties that you find lurking in these kinds of products. I would happily repurchase this sunscreen.
