We are in the middle of warm and sunny summer days. Protecting your skin is extremely important, even if you already have a tan or don’t burn so quickly. Because I never actually get burnt skin, I have always been very bad at protecting my skin. I have become increasingly aware of this in the recent years and with responsible tanning you get that much nicer tan.
My luck is also that I received the beautiful Botanical line from Australian Gold. This line contains 5 natural products for the outside sun based on mineral SPFs and high-quality botanical ingredients.
Australian Gold Botanical Sunscreen
The sun products from the Australian Gold Botanical line are all based on pure mineral protection thanks to zinc and titanium dioxide. The products don’t contain nanoparticles. They don’t penetrate the skin, but remain on the skin without leaving a white haze. In this way you have an invisible protective shield that reflects the sun’s rays, so that the skin isn’t damaged.
The Botanical products only contain mineral SPFs, which protect the skin naturally against UVA and UVB radiation. All formulas have rich botanical ingredients such as Kakadu Plum (a very rich source of Vitamin C), Australian Eucalyptus, Red algae extracts and Vitamin E. The products don’t stick, are non-greasy, absorb quickly and are sweat- and water resistant.
Good to know:
- botanical in origin
- free from SLS, parabens, oxybenzone, nano particles, alcohol, mineral oils, perfumes, dyes, phthalates, petrolatum, BPA and PABA
- reef friendly *
- dermatologically and child-friendly tested
- not tested on animals
*Reef-friendly means that the ingredients don’t have a negative, degrading effect on the coral in the seas.
Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Lotion
I immediately start with my favorite product from this line, the Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face Lotion has been specially developed for sensitive facial skin. It is an oil-free lotion with a factor of 50. The tinted formula works as a kind of primer that slowly builds up a nice tan in daily use. It also minimizes fine lines. The special texture based on microspheres ensures that this lotion dries quickly and does not feel greasy or sticky. A powder mat finish.
The added Kakadu Plum extract protects the skin against harmful external influences. Australian tea leaves (Eucalyptus) soothe and refresh the skin and give an extra oxygen boost. Red algae extracts and Vitamin E nourish and care for the skin.
Australian Gold Botanical Continuous Sprays SPF 15 en SPF 30
I love sprays. These sprays are also ideal for your face and you can even spray over your makeup without ruining your makeup. The formulas contain mineral UVA and UVB sun filters based on zinc and titanium dioxide. The added Kakadu Plum extract protects the skin against harmful external influences. Australian Eucalyptus soothes the skin, has a refreshing effect and gives an extra oxygen boost. Red algae extracts and Vitamin E nourish and care for the skin optimally.
Australian Gold Botanical Continuous Lotions SPF 15 en SPF 30
I may prefer to use a spray, it is of course possible that you prefer to use a sun protective lotion. These non-greasy and fast-absorbing lotions protect your skin with the natural UVA and UVB sun filters. Also added to these compositions are intensive care ingredients such as Kakadu Plum, Australian Eucalyptus, Red algae extracts, squalane, panthenol, shea butter and Vitamin E, which help prevent premature skin aging as a result of UV radiation and which intensively care for skin.
