SPF Skincare under £35

Summer may seem like a distant dream with rain hammering outside the window, but at Savoo we are optimistically reviewing sun creams in hope of some June sunshine! Shielding your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays is important whatever the weather, but especially if you planning to enjoy the British sun. We have rounded up our favourite foundations, moisturisers, lippies, body cream and hair products with SPF protection, so when the clouds eventually clear you will be ready for that trip to the beach- and best of all they are all priced under £35.


Integrating sun protection into your daily make-up routine has never been easier with SPF foundations and BB creams, which offer protection without the greasy residue of sunscreen. Our top beauty picks are:
  • Philosophy’s BB Balm (SPF 30) which primes the skin and delivers 24 hour hydration.
  • bareMinerals Mineral Veil (SPF 25), a sheer finishing powder perfect for sensitive skin.
  • Natio’s Clever Stick (SPF 15), acting as an all in one foundation, concealer and powder.
  • The Body Shop’s Moisture Foundation (SPF 15) which provides light to medium coverage in liquid form.
Don’t forget, make-up with an SPF may not provide complete protection against the sun, so always pair with sun cream on particularly hot days!

Your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your body, so extra care should be taken all year round to protect them from the sunshine (chapped lips are bad enough, let alone burnt!). When choosing your lippy or lip balm, look for a product that has an SPF 15 or higher for a perfectly kissable mouth. We love:
  • Palmer’s Original Cocoa Butter Lip Balm (SPF 15), enriched with vitamin E for daily protection.
  • Korres Lip Butter (SPF 15) in a range of different tints, including peach.
  • Uvistat’s Lipscreen (SPF 50) for those seriously hot days or summer holidays abroad.
  • Ambre Solaire’s Lip Protection (SPF 20) with advanced UVA-UVB water resistant protection.

If you don’t wear make-up on a daily basis then investing in a moisturiser with an SPF is the perfect way to protect your skin from damaging UV rays. Luckily, day creams with added sun protection are no longer pore clogging and greasy, as we discovered with these beauties:
  • Garnier Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream (SPF 15) helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and brown spots by protecting against UV rays.
  • The Body Shop’s Daily Moisturiser (SPF 30), packed full with vitamin C to enhance your skin’s natural radiance.
  • Origin’s Perfect World Moisturiser (SPF 25) contains the world famous Silver Tip White Tea and is oil free for everyday use.
  • Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Intensive Daily Moisturiser (SPF 15), the number one product in intensive moisturising.

This wouldn’t be a very good sunscreen guide without featuring the good old fashioned body cream itself! As a general rule the less pigment you have in your skin the higher your risk of getting skin cancer and prematurely aging, so it is important to find an SPF that suits you- use the Fitzpatrick scale as a guide. We love these sun creams which range from SPF 15-50:
  • Riemann Once a Say Sun Protection (SPF 20), a water resistant clear liquid that last for 10 hours.
  • Piz Buin’s Wet Skin Sun Spray (SPF 30) can be applied to either wet or dry skin.
  • Clarins Oil Free Lotion (SPF 15), designed for active sun seekers with combination skin.
  • Garnier’s Golden Protect Milk (SPF 50) offers maximum protection along with a glistening golden shimmer.

Excessive sun exposure wreaks havoc with your hair (as well as your parting and scalp), so prevent damage and colour fading by using a spray or protective shampoo:
  • Green People’s Sun and Sports Shampoo offers UV repair and all natural ingredients.
  • Soltan’s Transparent Suncare Spray is 5* rated for UVA rays with invisible protection.
  • Phyto’s Sun Oil combines a sun filter and anti UVB polymer to protect hair from harsh sun rays.
  • Wella’s Sun UV Spray is a fantastic water resistant UV protector at a reasonable price.
