Just wanted to say a sunny hello from Crete where I’m enjoying a lovely sunshine break with the family. We first came to Crete about 5 years ago and had such glorious weather we just had to come back – the sunshine this time certainly hasn’t let us down. We are staying in a beautiful resort just outside of Hersonissos and as always I have my Ultrasun products at the ready to protect the whole family including 2 of the 400ml super sizes!
Now I know luggage weight is at a premium and for our flights this year were restricted to 15kg but I honestly think that Ultrasun is worth its weight in gold in your suitcase. In fact this year, determined not to pay for extra luggage, I took a rucksack as part of our hand luggage allowance and filled it with swimwear and shorts and shoes in order to make sure I could pack all my Ultrasun and other large toiletries and still make the weight restriction.
I must admit I have become slightly fanatical about sun protection, but I realise that’s because as a teenager there I was sunning myself in Tenerife using nil factor carrot oil!
Of course, we didn’t know then what we know now about the dangers of sun exposure, but I still want come back from holiday with a great tan. So I kind of start slowly with Extreme SPF50 and use the Anti-Pigmentation Face SPF50 for the face.
I then move on to the Family SPF30 and for the last week I use the Glimmer SPF20 alongside the Anti-Ageing Face SPF30 which are my all time hero products from the range. The Face SPF30 is such a beautiful moisturiser it really is skincare and sun-care combined in one product, and as I have dry skin that’s quite a tall order.
The Glimmer SPF20 has to be the most glamorous but serious sun-care cream around. I think serious really is the key. If I’m exposing myself and more importantly my family to the sun, I want the best sun protection out there and Ultrasun are the experts. That’s why when you look at my holiday pic you can see all of the Ultrasun products that made it into my suitcase. Plus, it doesn’t matter if I don’t use it all this summer as Ultrasun sun-care products have such a long shelf life, and even once opened, I’ll have enough for next year too!
I almost forgot to mention the once-a day-application which not only makes Ultrasun a lot more convenient to use especially where the kids are concerned, it also works out to be excellent value as you use so much less.
Definitely check out our Ultrasun offers online and take a look at the Ultrasun hints and tips to staying safe in the sun. Also if you know someone who doesn’t take sun-care seriously get them to have a look at some of the statistics Ultrasun have on our website regarding skin cancer in the UK, as it’s quite scary.
But here’s to happy holidays, enjoying the sunshine, and having nothing to lose but those winter blues! Bag yourself some sunshine and a cocktail or two, and as they say in Crete,
