Cover me in sunshine… and green suncream!

Updated: Aug 14, 2021



With blue skies in abundance this weekend, the one thing we can’t get enough of is….sunscreen. And shade!


The hard and fast rules of SPF go without saying, with regular, thorough application the mainstay of staying safe in the sun.


Finding a brand that’s suitable for your skin type, and for the intended purpose (eg. sport, beach, everyday under make-up) is, however, somewhat less clean cut.


One brand which appears to tick all of the ‘suitable for…’ boxes (in our opinion) is Altruist. The brand provides premium, affordable suncreams which boast a broad range of photostable UV filters, including the world’s most advanced filter: Tinosorb A2B.


Their products are fast absorbing, non-sticky, water-resistant, fragrance free, paraben free and cruelty free, not to mention coral friendly AND vegan.


The range has something for everyone, but we’re singling out Altruist Anti-Redness and Pigmentation product specifically, for the purpose of this post, as it offers a little something extra than you’d expect to get from an SPF. That is… coverage!


As a green tinted moisturiser, this daycream product is ideal for redness-prone skin, combining concealing technology with an active plant complex that helps to even out skin tone.


The high SPF and additional protection against high energy blue light, also puts the ‘green one’ up in our estimations, lending extra peace of mind when ‘showering in the good times’ of this long-awaited hot spell!
