The skincare industry is now a multi billion pound industry and there has recently been an important focus on the use of natural products/ingredients that still have effective results.

I received a few of their products (mainly the Vitamin ACE range) and have been using them for a while now and here’s what I think and what I’d rate the products based on their effectiveness.

The importance of SPF in skincare

SPF is short for Sun Protection Factor and is found in many cosmetic products. Whether the sun is out or not, UV rays still hit our skin and can cause short/ long-term damage. In all honesty I didn’t realise how influential SPF is, especially its importance from a young age, in order to protect our skin and reduce the damage it receives. I did some deep research into SPF and UV damage and summarised it into this blog post for you all.
