Murad Essential-C Sun Balm

We all know the importance of sunscreen and for me it is just as important to apply it as it is moisturiser. You dont have to wait for the sun to come out, a common misnomer and I am one of those people who always looks for a product that has a high enough SPF that I am comfortable with to protect my skin.

I was sent the Murad Essential-C Sun Balm** which is essentially a sunscreen stick with Vitamin-C to prevent and combat sun damage. Now when I say sunscreen stick, think of a roll on deodorant and it is very similar. Whats more is that it is the perfect size for putting into your handbag to carry around to use as and when you need too.

As a balm this product is still designed to protect and shield your skin from UVA/UVB rays, free radicals and dehydration. With an SPF35 it uses

• Broccoli Extract which stimulates skin’s natural defense against UV damage
• Tangerine Butter which locks in moisture and leaves skin silky smooth
• Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E defend and protect skin’s health

What I love about this balm, other than the fact it is perfectly portable is that it doesn't come with that sunscreen smell and when on the skin, it isn't greasy, it doesn't leave behind any marks or stains and in all honesty it doesn't feel as though you are wearing anything at all, which of course I really like. To use, you simply apply liberally to your face, neck and chest 15 minutes before exposing yourself to the sun and re-apply every two hours. I have used it on my face, ears, behind my ears, back of my neck, my chest and on both shoulders to great effect when the sun has been shining.

The Murad Essential-C Sun Balm costs £19.50 and can be bought here.

  1. I always wear sunscreen on my face, but typically go with a moisturizer combo. I like the idea of a stick- especially if I only want to protect around my eyes or a specific area.

  2. I think this would be perfect for taking on holidays - altho I'm not sure I could get on with the roll on stick?!

  5. Ooh I've got a holiday coming up and this sounds perfect. I always wear suncream and my moisturiser contains SPF 10, but this looks really good!

  6. I've never tried any Murad products before. The stick reminds me of deodorant!
