Summer Beauty: Zelens Body Defence Sunscreen SPF 30 review

Zelens Body Defence Sunscreen SPF 30 review
Zelens are well known for their innovative skincare formulas, but did you know that they have some rather clever sunscreens in their range as well?

Considering that the man behind Zelens, Dr Marko Lens, is a specialist in skin cancer (he's your go-to-guy if you're a celebrity that's concerned about a mole), it should come as no surprise to discover that his sunscreens are some of the most advanced on the market. Forget sticky, greasy, pore-clogging, thick sun creams and instead, get ready to embrace something completely different!

I was incredibly excited when the Zelens Body Defence Sunscreen SPF 30 arrived a couple of weeks ago from Feel Unique because this is the first time that I've tried a sunscreen which is an oil, so I couldn't wait to see how it performed during one of the hottest days on record in the UK recently.

Zelens Body Defence Sunscreen SPF 30 review
Zelens Body Defence Sunscreen SPF 30 is truly like no other sunscreen that I've used before. This silky oil formula is enriched with Vitamin E, Squalene (derived from Mediterranean Olive Oil), Sesame and Grape Seed Oils, which deeply nourishes and moisturises parched and dry skin, whilst also helping to promote elasticity. In addition, there's a vast range of plant extracts included to further heal and protect the skin, making it stronger and more resilient against the elements. 

The sunscreen protection is SPF 30 and it's broad spectrum so it protects against both harmful UVA and UVB rays, but the real magic is in the way that this is delivered. Using an innovative formula which utilises silica-encapsulated organic sun filters, this helps to create an invisible 'force field' between the skin and the sun's damaging rays so that free radicals are deflected, preventing you from getting burnt and fighting against the formation of wrinkles and fine lines at the same time. Having tested it on the hottest day of the year (and since records began!), I can say with 100% confidence that it works.

Aside from the formula, what I like the most about this sunscreen is that it's super lightweight, easily absorbed and it's basically invisible once applied to the skin. It doesn't have any of the problems that people typically hate about sunscreens (it's not greasy, sticky etc) and you can even use it on your hair as a protective sun oil. If you have the cash to splash and you hate thick sun creams with a passion, this is the sun protection for you. It's completely different, does what it says on the bottle and makes your skin feel incredible. What's not to love?!
