Best sunscreens to buy now

I know that summer is almost over and I'm probably sooo late with this blogpost, but I really wanted to talk a little bit about sunscreens. Just recently I discovered that I am allergic to chemical SPF. Chemical sunscreens use a combination of two to six of these active ingredients: oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate, and octinoxate. They absorb rays in a chemical reaction that dissipates the heat back off the skin. My skin reacts very badly with these ingredients and I start to itch all over my body, which is not very fun. I did my research and found out that there are sunscreens with mineral SPF too. Mineral sunscreens use active mineral ingredients, such as zinc oxide and titanium oxide. They reflect the sun’s rays like a mirror to protect exposed skin. Generally speaking, naturally derived ingredients used in mineral sunscreens are gentler than chemicals. So now I have two products that I want introduce to you, one sunscreen is chemical (La Roche-Posay Anthelios), but somehow it works perfectly well on my skin, and the other one is mineral (Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Lotion).

It has a very high, broad, photostable UVA/UVB protection, light, non-greasy texture. It also is very water resistant, tested under dermatological control, fragrance-free, paraben-free, non-comedogenic. This sunscreen is certainly suitable for sensitive skin. photo DSC_0680 copy_zps37ofbvwj.jpg  photo DSC_0688 copy_zpspiyktued.jpg | Clinique Mineral Sunscreen Lotion For Body SPF 30 |
Since it is a mineral sunscreen, it gives a great protection against both UVA and UVB rays. It includes both titanium dioxide and zinc oxide that are two of the main ingredients you should be looking in a sunscreen. The texture of the liquid is runny creamy. It gets absorbed quickly without leaving any whitish cast behind. it does not feel oily or greasy on the skin. This is an oil free sunscreen so people with all skin types can use this.

Girls, what kind of sunscreen do you use? mineral or chemical? Let me know in comments!

Mallorca Haul

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you may probably already know, that I have been on holiday in Mallorca. I had a really great time and fell in love with this beautiful island.

The one and only thing that I really wanted to find this time was Jo Malone cologne. I knew that there was Jo Malone shop in Palma (Mallorca's capital), but I didn't have enough time to search for it, because we lived in another city called Palmanova. So I was pretty sad about it, but I found a Jo Malone counter at the airport, when we were about to fly back home. Can you imagine how happy I was about it? I took a sniff of all the colognes and decided to buy BLUE AGAVA AND CACAO. Because summer is almost over, I though there is no point in buying light citrusy colognes and the one that I picked is perfect for fall. It has a floral scent, but it's pretty heavy, because it has cacao, cinnamon, vetiver and musk in it too. So I am very happy that I finally purchased a scent from Jo Malone, because every blogger is raving about them.

Actually my fiance bought it for me as a gift, that was very sweet of him. 
Majorica is a well know brand in Mallorca. The Majorica pearl is made of an opaline crystal nucleus coated in multiple fine layers with the “pearl essence”, an extract obtained from the Majorica secret processing technique of natural organic elements of the Mediterranean Sea. Its complex formula reproduces the iridescence, beauty, resistance and perfection of the finest natural pearls. I fell in love with this bracelet as soon as I saw it. Isn't it beautiful?
