New launches for today from TBS include this Fresh Nude Tinted Beauty Balm with SPF30. I don’t know about you, but the more veil-like the coverage of make up SPF the less I feel it’s doing its job properly. I’ve mentioned many times that I use the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue almost every day for just going about my daily life so I’m not completely bare-faced in the park with the dog and for the time that I’m out, which is about an hour, it’s fine. But, I’m not under the illusion that it’s giving me the longevity of a sunscreen. In terms of modern SPF formulations, you couldn’t say that TBS Fresh Nude is weightless – it isn’t, but it’s that very thing that makes me feel it’s going to give longer protection last.
Actually, it made my skin feel very soft because it’s nicely hydrating although Medium Fair isn’t quite the right shade for me. At £14, you’re getting a good level of SPF in a hydrating formula with a decent tint level that makes you feel you’re not quite bare-faced. As it’s sweat resistant, it’s a good running or outdoor sport mate. It’s HERE.
I know exactly what’s going to happen to this in the next few hours – my son, Max, is going to spot it and nick it. The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Wash is ideal for boy skin or for anyone who needs oil busting. It’s got a dash of tea-tree if you like that nearly-medical scent in a wash while feeling gentle on the complexion and properly cleansing. At £9.50, it’s a great value cleanser if you’re prone to oil, and it’s HERE.
I love citrus scents, so the new Pink Grapefruit Body Yoghurt is right up my street. Formulated in a gel consistency, you don’t get any residue or stickiness with this; if anything, it’s gone too soon, but the zingy grapefruit fragrance stays long after you’ve applied the yoghurt. One of my bugbears is citrus body products that have a kind of ‘dirty’ back smell – they start off beautifully and gradually begin to give off a chemical smell that’s not very pleasant. None of that with this – all I can smell is grapefruit. The only thing I don’t like is that because of its texture, it’s quite cold feeling when you apply; not what I want in winter but bring it on for spring. It’s £8.50 HERE.
