I love this moisturiser.
I try to wear a high sun factor on my face everyday to fight aging – it’s complete vanity rather than sun safety but any motivation to keep your skin safe is good in my book. While as a youngster I would completely bake and burn myself I try and always wear really high factor now along with big hats and seeking shade as much as possible.
The problem with a lot of high factors is that they are thick and gloopy and can be uncomfortable to wear, and in addition to putting on moisturiser it can seem like a lot to do in the morning so to find a daily moisturiser with built in, proper factor – as opposed to a customary spf 15 – was awesome.
This cream goes on really well, sinks into your skin and feels really nice. It’s a complete winner.
Even better is that Elave products are completely free from parabens, oil and other nasty products that shouldn’t be on our skin, an ever better again is that Elave is an Irish brand made in Ireland.
The only downside is that it can be tricky to find…. Boots.ie my usual go to stock just a few Elave items online and I find it tricky to find in chemists. However I have just noticed that http://www.elaveskincare.com/ are now selling online and it’s free shipping for orders over €25 – so if you are getting more than one, which costs €22.95, you are sorted.
