The prize for the best new beauty product I have tried all summer has to go to the Bioderma Hydrabio moisturising Anti-UV mist with SPF 30. It is just such a brilliant idea: a face mist with sunscreen you can simply spray on. I don’t understand why there aren’t more brands out there doing this, but luckily the execution by Bioderma is pretty great!
This little spray comes in a very pretty white can with some blue and gold details. You shake the can well before use, close your eyes, and spray from about 20 cm distance onto your face. The mist produced by the can is very fine and coats your face evenly. It just forms a little layer on top of your skin or over your make-up without disturbing it.
Just to be clear: I don’t think you should be using this as your only sunscreen. In stead, think of it as a great convenient top-up that you can easily bring along in your handbag. No need to find a mirror and apply sunscreen, just find a spot in the sun and spray.
It has taken a while for the sun to come out so I could test it properly, but I have been loving it. It gives a slightly shiny appearance to the skin, but nothing to greasy. It keeps make-up in place, so it is perfect to bring to work for that lunch break in the sun.
This spray contains 50 ml and is available for about £9 / € 11, though prices vary a little depending on your supplier. I think my can will last me through the summer, as you only need a little to keep your face protected. I obviously love this, but I have also been testing a version by La Roche Posay so stay tuned for that review.
