Nuxe Sun Milky Spray Face and Body SPF20

If you’re spending time out in the sun, an SPF is really important to protect your skin from becoming burnt. We love the Nuxe Sun Milky Spray as it doesn’t block up pores, yet provides adequate protection from harmful rays. Hydrating the skin, it slows down signs of ageing and helps your natural tan to develop more safely! Light and water-resistant, you won’t even notice that you’re wearing it.

Korres Red Vine Hair Sun Protection

Did you know that your hair needs an SPF just like your skin? The Korres Sun Protection Spray shields your tresses from UV rays which fade hair colour and evaporate moisture, causing dry, dull locks. Simply spritz it into your hair either wet or dry and style as usual and it will remain protected from the damaging sun. Containing nanoparticles, they graft onto the hair and help to maintain colour, whether dyed or natural.
