Tested for you: „Ultra Light Sun Block SPF 50+“ from Team Dr. Joseph

About this Sun Block I was particularly excited, because I simply love the products from Team Dr. Joseph. Since 1986, they have been a successful symbiosis of high-tech and nature. Here, technological know-how is combined with highly effective, natural raw materials. And the people behind them are simply likeable. I got to know and appreciate the founder Dr. Joseph Franz and his sons myself in South Tyrol. UV protection without whitening effect It was therefore a special pleasure to try out the new product, a sunscreen for summer and winter, myself. Especially with UV protection with factor 50+ I am very critical. Mostly I am bothered by the well-known whitening effect of mineral UV filters (“inorganic” or “physical filters”). These are usually mineral white pigments (e.g. zinc or titanium), which lie on the skin like small mirrors and reflect the UV light. In addition, many of these products feel heavy and pappy already when applied. In this respect, the “Ultra Light Sun Block” with SPF 50+ has positively surprised me. The cream comes delicately liquid from the dispenser, is light, absorbs super quickly and does not whiten the surface. The skin neither feels dry nor shines unpleasantly. Because biotechnological hyaluronic acid provides intense moisture, it can smooth wrinkles and fine lines. Also protects from Blue Light You can tell that the product is not a “quick fix”. Four years of intensive research and development have gone into the innovative combination of different sun filters. It offers broadband protection against UVA and UVB rays and also protects against the harmful effects of artificial light (HEV rays). High Energy Visible – i.e. high-energy visible light – often referred to as Blue Light, is what we consume every day via cell phone, tablet or computer. But these are by no means all the high-tech natural goodies that are contained in the light Sun Block: Wild carrot can prevent premature skin aging, has a firming effect, protects cells, soothes and is rich in vitamins. Just like tocopherol (natural vitamin E), sea buckthorn is considered an effective antioxidant, which also supports collagen production and thus has a smoothing effect. Also a radical scavenger, even with anti-blue-light effect, is butterfly bush. Allantoin and mallow soothe and smooth the skin, making it supple. It is best to apply the UV protection over the day cream to the face, neck and décolleté all year round, as required. Always allow the day cream to absorb well first.… weiterlesen

Sun Protection tested for you: „Face Fluid SPF50“ from Altruist

Sun protection is a must. In addition to the moisture balance, sun exposure is a major factor in wrinkles and skin problems in relation to skin aging. Every child knows that by now. Even with sun protection creams it is not true, the more elegant the design, the better the protection. At „Stiftung Warentest“, a foundation that was established in 1964 by the German federal parliament to provide consumers with informations regularly, some premium brands were once again rated “poor” last year because they fell below the specified protection factor, could not provide the promised moisture or – although they were referred to – were not waterproof. Depending on your height, you need between 30 and 40 milliliters of suncream per day for the body alone. A 175 ml bottle is only enough for five days. If you pay 30 euros for this, that’s six euros a day. And the bill isn’t even right, because you should reapply sun protection every two hours during the day! This sun protection is a real altruist That’s why I examined a new line from Great Britain more closely. It proves that good sun protection at a high level does not have to be expensive. “Altruist” is positively out of the ordinary in every respect. It is a dermatological sun protection with a high-quality, photostable broad-spectrum UV filter for UVA and UVB rays, including the innovative Tinosorb A2B, a chemical-mineral hybrid. It is well absorbed by the skin and does not whitish. Altruist was developed by the English dermatologist and cancer researcher Dr. Andrew Birnie from Canterbury to help prevent skin cancer. The name Altruist is his program. It’s a not-for-profit brand – 10 cents of every bottle sold goes to African charities. He keeps the production costs low, which is noticeable in sales prices. Cream SPF 30 / SPF50 and Fluid SPF 50 start at six euros. The 1 liter bottle costs 10 euros or 20 euros. High quality, low price – it works! „Face Fluid SPF50“ from Altruist 50 ml, 10 Euro… weiterlesen

Testet for you: Estée Lauder „Perfectionist Pro Aqua UV Gel SPF 50“

With UV filters, my skin has its problems. Depending on them more than they irritation speak small red spots and clogged pores. I would take that as proof of just how stressful chemical filter systems are on the skin. My beautician Julia has to fight the consequences every time again and again. But because uv protection is a must, I’ve tried countless products. Including mineral filters. Nearly none of them passed the test. If they don’t cause pimples, they leave white traces or an unsightly greasy sheen in the higher filter area, which I don’t even tolerate on the beach. For this reason, I was extremely excited about the new product from Estée Lauder’s Perfectionist series. So light on the skin The “Aqua UV-Gel” lives up to its name. The gel emulsion comes out of the tube whitish, but is water light and becomes immediately transparent when spread on the skin. In addition, it leaves the face with a pleasantly refreshing feeling of moisture. No ugly whitening effect despite SPF 50. The 100% mineral-based light protection creates a silky veil that protects the skin from UVA / UVB exposure. The light glow makes the complexion beautifully summery. Anti-irritants like algae extract and caffeine prevent stains and blemishes. They help my skin feel relaxed and calm. What I also like is that the gel formula not only prevents UV damage, but is also equipped with eight anti-oxidants such as tiger lily extract, vitamins C and E, resveratrol and green tea extract. As a result, the skin is protected from environmental pollution such. B. effectively protected by ozone, smoke, infrared and fine dust. I’ve been using the Aqua Gel for four weeks now and applied it every morning as the last step in my skin care routine.No sticky feeling, no clogged pores. I’m curious what my beautician will say at our next appointment. Estée Lauder “Perfectionist Pro Aqua UV Gel SPF 50“, 30 ml, 45 US $… weiterlesen
