The Reparative Sun Lotion by Creme de la Mer

SPF 30

This summer I visited Marrakech, Morocco. The weather reached temperatures of over 40°, and being incredibly fair I had to ensure that my skin was protected at all times. Luckily my sun care of choice - The Reparative Sun Lotion - worked wonderfully.

We all know the usual routine with sun care. A holiday essential, yes; but it is also thick and oily, leaving your face shinier than the Chrysler Building and skin congested, unable to breathe. Creme de la Mer’s new offering manages to protect the skin with none of the shiny residue.

A light lotion, this is a rich formula that sinks into the skin fairly quickly. As well as providing an SPF30, the hydrating properties of the formula are ideal for instantly comforting drier holiday skin, relieving tightness and helping to replenish lost moisture. Like all Creme de la Mer products, the lotion is infused with the Miracle Broth. This is the special formula that binds everything in the range, with sea kelp at the heart.

So now for the real question – how did it work? I used a regular suncream all over my body and saved the lotion for my face, neck and décolletage. Despite finding myself with slight burn on areas like shoulders and tops of legs, my face remained unscathed for the duration of my trip. A light sprinkling of freckles emerged around my eyes and forehead, but I returned without a burn or a wrinkle in sight. Result!

As always, Creme de la Mer ensure that their packaging makes any girl proud to display her products on her dresser. This shimmering cream tube is finished with rose gold accents of a clean dispense pump (two to three should cover the whole face generously) and of course the classic logo.

At £85.00 for 50ml, this is definitely an investment, but one that I can say truly works. What’s more is that after a long stay with plenty of top-ups I have returned with a near-full tube, meaning that this will last me well into the winter when SPF is important as ever as the elements make their changes.

The Reparative Face Sun Lotion is available from and don’t forget that you get free delivery and two free samples with every order.
