The By BEAUTY BAY SPF 50 Facial Lotion is the newest addition to my skincare routine that I can’t live without! I have extremely sensitive skin and have always struggled to find SPFs that work for me and that don’t look chalky or greasy. I find it leaves my skin so moisturised and glowy without causing any irritation, breakouts, or redness. I love that it provides anti-pollution and UVA/UVB protection, especially because I live in a city. Plus, it contains coneflower to reduce redness, which I love for when my skin breaks out.
I’ve suffered with eczema my whole life and always struggled to find an SPF that doesn’t leave my skin irritated and cause a reaction. This has always put me off adding SPF to my daily routine, this is until I tried BEAUTY BAY‘s hidden gem. Wearing SPF on a daily basis has also really helped to keep my eczema under control – I recently learned that UV exposure triggers inflammation so it can make eczema worse if you’re not protecting your skin – even on cloudy days!
I use this SPF as the last step of my routine, after I moisturise – I actually find it super moisturising as well so my skin benefits from the extra hydration. I‘ve also found that it’s one of the only SPFs that doesn’t leave a white cast on your face and leaves you with an effortless glow.
It’s so important to add an SPF to your routine, it’s the most important skincare step that most people seem to avoid. I love that this one is also affordable because I can keep repurchasing!
