alba Botanica Sunscreen Range – Review & Photos

 

Sunscreen season is quickly approaching and with the variety of sunscreens available from alba Botanica your summer is well covered.  alba’s non-mineral sunscreens absorb and dissipate the sun’s harmful rays in a glide-on formula that covers quickly and easily without residue.

Their sunscreens are 100% vegetarian and are broad spectrum, offering both UVA and UVA protection with SPF 40. Their sunscreens are all fragrance free, non-greasy, pH balanced, water resistant and dermatologist tested.

I love their travel friendly packaging, I can just pop this in my beach bag and I’m ready to go.

 

alba Botanica Sport Sunscreen Lotion ($9.99 – 110ml)
This Sport sunscreen lotion is everything you need to really enjoy your active, outdoor life. With SPF 40, this sweat-proof, water-resistant lotion goes on quickly and stays on, protecting and conditioning. I love this sunscreen because it has a really manageable consistency. It’s not too thick and it glides on so easily. My skin also feels super soft when using this.

This Sport Sunscreen Lotion is also available in a spray version (Happy Dance)

 

alba Botanica Facial Sunscreen Lotion ($9.99-113ml)
I’ve never been a fan of using the same sunscreen that you use on your body to your face. My skin is super sensitive so I definitively need to use a sunscreen that specially formulated for the face. This facial sunscreen lotion is very gentle but so effective, providing broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with SPF 40. This fast-absorbing sunscreen lotion for your face doesn’t clog pores. And has Aloe Vera, Ginseng, Lavender and Calendula to hydrate and nourish delicate facial skin.

 

alba Botanica Kids Sunscreen Lotion ($9.99 – 110ml)
alba Botanica’s Kid-friendly, SPF 40 sunscreen provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It’s water resistant, non-greasy formulation offers lasting protection for active kids. And as a bonus it’s fast absorbing, perfect for kids who just can’t stand still.

This Kid-friendly Sunscreen Lotion is also available in a spray version

  • Denise

    Alba Botanica seems to be very good, parabens free and vegetarian. I like products like this. The only problem for me is that unfortunately SPF 40 does very little for me 🙁 I normally use SPF 100, and I am not kidding. The sun harms my skin in such a way, that I have blisters if not protect, red like a pepper, and sometimes I had to go to hospital. So now either I avoid sun like a vampire, or I use a high SPF 🙁 But being a natural product, I liked Allba Botanica, I think it’s good!
