BuyaPowa Blue Sky Co-Buys

This week BuyaPowa are running some 'Blue Sky' co-buys. All of these co-buys are for items that are considered to be Summer essentials by certain bloggers. I was recently contacted by them and was asked which Summer essentials I'd like to see as one of their co-buys. The product at the top of my wishlist was the Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF50+. After being completely floored their wonderful Liquid Gold I knew I wanted to try some more of the Alpha-H skincare range.

I currently use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré day and night but it doesn't have any SPF in it. When it gets sunny over here or if I'm going abroad one thing I always struggle with is deciding which sunscreen to buy. Its so difficult to find one that will sit nicely under makeup and not turn your face into a giant greaseball. Its also hard to find one with a high enough SPF to stop my pasty skin from getting burnt. If like me you use products such as Liquid Gold that contain Glycolic Acid its really important to wear SPF on a daily basis as they do make your face more susceptible to sun damage. During the little heatwave we had here a couple of months ago I bought the Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream For Face SPF 50 and that was pretty good but it was a bit heavy to wear on top of my normal moisturiser. So I scoured the internet for a moisturiser with SPF 50 built into it. This Alpha-H one seems like the best solution. According to every review I've read it is light yet hydrating and gives you brilliant sun protection with an almost matte finish. Perfection.

If you're interested in purchasing this product then make sure you sign up to get an email as soon as the co-buy goes live. With BuyaPowa you can get this product for as low as £22.50 which is a decent saving on the RRP of £27. Theres loads of other great products coming next week. I also have my eye on one of the Urban Decay setting sprays. With both products in hand I'm sure my face will survive the Summer... if it ever starts that is!
