August in Andalucia. If you plan to get anything done, or see to any official business, forget it. If you plan to have fun and party like there's no tomorrow - you're in the right place!
Everything stops for August - and the postie was extra late with my review package too, normally received with lightening speed from the good folk over at Mypure Natural Beauty.
Between the events of cultural week, and the extra guests floating in and out of our house (thinking of a revolving door to make things easier) there was a lot of clearing up and cooking ahead to be done.
The kids did what kids do - and folded up their towels, then duly took off up the village hill to the pool to spend long summer days splashing and swimming, playing cards and taking endless selfie shots...a hard life, eh?
Luckily for them, my review package included Lovea sunscreen, in factors 30 and 15. They are already deeply tanned, but never go out without their sunscreen - prevention now to help ensure a safe future for their skin. Natural and no chemicals too - standard procedure from Mypure. My only regret is not going natural years ago, particularly with sun protection.
Here's what we tried out:
Lovea Organic SPF 15 Spray
Lovea Organic Sun Care Spray SPF 15 is an Ecocert certified organic sunscreen. This SPF 15 cream is lightly scented with natural essential oils and provides MEDIUM UVA & UVB protection. The formula is water resistant, non greasy and applies without white traces.
Lovea Organic SPF 30 Spray
This SPF 30 cream is lightly scented with natural essential oils and provides HIGH UVA & UVB protection. The formula is water resistant, non greasy and applies without white traces.
Worth noting, if you plan to swim in the sea this year, is that Lovea is coral safe and contains natural mineral sun blocks combined with certified organic, bio-degradable plant extracts. It does not contain any chemicals which can damage coral reefs...
There's a higher SPF of 50 for kids too...for younger skin or first days under a foreign sun.
The kids loved the handy sprays, which never clogged and were light and easy on their skin, and judging by the amount left in the bottles their friends loved them too :)
Price? The Lovea suncare range starts at under £10 and goes up to £17.99 - a small price to pay for protecting your family skin - naturally. Buy your sun protection at Mypure Natural Beauty - don't leave home without it!
