Lip Balm SPF 15
Infused with hydrating beeswax and aloe vera, this sun-friendly lip balm also contains coffee-seed extract to heal dry, chapped lips. A combination of avocado, olive and wheatgerm oils creates an extra protective shield.

Tan Maximiser Soothing Moisturiser

Super City Block SPF 40
A blend of sunscreen agents, anti-oxidants and sunflower extracts, this tinted face protector defends against UV and daily environmental stresses. Oil-free and with a matte finish, it's ideal to wear under make-up.
