This product is a powdered sunblock that you apply all over to the body and face, and not only does it protect the skin, but it also covers it like a foundation, so for makeup lovers out there that want their bodies to look even and flawless, you are absolutely going to love this product. But unlike horrible looking 'only way is essex' types of tans and makeup appearances, you can choose the colour suited best to your skin and look naturally lovely, rather than fake or orange. Until recently, there were only two shades, but now there is a three, 'Golden' is the newest addition to the range and is perfect for summer. If you have a medium shade to your skin, you are going to love this. The product comes in the most fantastic container with a sponge built into the lid. You basically take off the plastic that is protecting the foundation, so that it will now come out, put lid back on, shake and press it into the skin, the foundation falls into the bottom of the sponge and you can see the sponge change colour from white to brown.
You need to apply it to lightly moisturised skin so that the foundation will hold. It's also water resistent so perfect for taking to a seaside holiday!
This product is also so gentle, you can even use it on children. The shade I have is too brown for my daughter Lola, so next time I would get the lightest shade, but I have been using it myself and think its a truly wonderful product!

Benefits and Application Tips:
• Apply to face and body for women, men, and children 30 minutes prior to sun exposure.
• Dab on the powder (you want to see a full circle of product on skin). Apply a generous amount of product to desired area of the body. Gently rub product into the skin with hand or smooth product into skin with sponge with long strokes.
• For the best results, layer the lightweight powder over moisturised skin. This will help the powder to adhere to the skin more effectively.
• The sponge cap is easily removed and can be washed, replace when it's dry.
