Plastic free sun cream?

Well Yes !!!....We stock 'Shade' Suncream and have done since last year! Its a great suncream which I have used, it is really easy to use and i love its size, perfect to fit in your bag when out and about on those sunny days.

How to apply?

When cold, warm up with your fingers or scoop a little from the tin and warm up in your hands and apply to your skin. It leaves a slight sheen on your skin, but to me, I find this helps to see if i have missed any areas on my skin. I also love that it acts as a great moisturizer with the ingredient, shea butter and its really great that it comes in a tin, to help you get every last bit out of the suncream (compared to bottles) where once empty you can reuse!

Do ensure that you reapply regularly after sweating /swimming.

Shade is suitable for all skin types and ages.
