REVIEW & SWATCHES | THE BODY SHOP SKIN DEFENCE MULTI-PROTECTION ESSENCE SPF50


The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence (£17/£21) was everywhere when it came out a few years ago, and as always I am significantly late to the party. This SPF 50 essence is designed to be used under foundation and after normal moisturiser, specifically for protection against the environment and harmful sun rays. It contains broad spectrum UV filters, red algae and Vitamin C, so actually does more than just protect the skin but also acts to brighten it. I used it throughout my recent holiday to Mykonos and for almost a month since then and here is my verdict. 


What It Is: SPF 50 PA++++ sunscreen 

What It Does: Protect against multiple aggressors including UVA and UVB rays whilst reducing dullness through red algae and Vitamin C. 

What I Liked: It is a very light, non-greasy formula that sits well under makeup or alone on the skin. It doesn't leave a white cast, which is always a worry, and is the complete opposite to the thick sunscreens that I am used to which clog my pores and are generally quite slippery in texture. Wildly impressed by this sunscreen, for makeup wearers and for those with oily skin I think this is a winner.


What I Didn't: I know in the past it was £16 for the 40ml bottle so although trivial I do think it is more expensive than it needs to be. Secondly, the consistency is quite thin, which I do like, but it does mean you run the risk of pouring out more than you need a lot of the time which results in wasted product. 


All in all though this is one of the best sunscreens I have tried, if not the best, it is so easy to use and barely noticeable. This is the only sunscreen I could imagine incorporating into my daily routine outside of vacations which is a great plus point as we all know the importance of daily sun protection. I am happy I gave this product a shot and would definitely consider it a product I would repurchase, next time I would go for the larger £21 60ml tube. Thank you for reading, don't forget to leave me a comment below, I know there are many skincare connoisseurs among you! Take care.

What is your favourite SPF moisturiser?
