Cleanse & Polish The Results

Blueberry Seed Oil

BLUEBERRY SEED OIL
(Vaccinium myrtillus)

High in potent antioxidants, we use blueberry seed oil in our Environmental Defence Cream SPF 25, as it helps the cream work as a natural shield against blue light. Thanks to its high fatty acid composition, it also supports skin’s natural moisture barrier, resulting in hydrated and nourished skin. Sustainably sourced and produced; we extract this ingredient from 100% upcycled blueberries – a waste product of the juice production industry.

Lingonberry Seed Oil

LINGONBERRY SEED OIL
(Vaccinium vitis-idaea)

Known to be a powerful antioxidant with a reputation as a health-promoting superfruit, we use lingonberry seed oil in our Environmental Defence Cream SPF 25, as it helps the cream work as a natural shield against blue light. This botanical is also known for its conditioning properties and for helping boost skin’s natural moisture barrier. We source these wild self-sustainable berries from Finland and Sweden.

Shea Butter

SHEA BUTTER
(Butyrospermum parkii)

Renowned for its excellent emollient properties and ability to help improve the barrier function of the skin, we source our shea butter from West Africa, where the pulp of the fruit is removed to reveal the kernel, which is boiled and dried in the sun before being shelled for pressing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, this was an impulse buy I honestly didn't expect a tinted moisturizer tobwoke with my viitigilo which looks like a patch work quilt. Very surprised how amazing it is. I haven't tried it for defence yet, but plan to use it in India where the pollution is horrendous

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great SPF cream I love this Environmental Defense Cream. I use it every day, it absorbs into the skin and leaves a nice glow. The only negative is I would like a higher SPF for summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Been using this for about a month now and I love it. I wear it on the days I am working in the office and definitely feel its protecting my skin against pollution and the awful air con in work. I don't wear make-up and I apply 10 mins after moisturiser and it gives a lovely even look to my skin. Was a bit wary when I saw the tint but it doesn't show after application. Will definitely buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I have fair sensitive skin prone to prickly heat and have struggled to find a good facial sunscreen . This product was lovely to wear. It didn’t feel greasy or cause a breakout, the tint was subtle and it was very effective and long lasting. I have already ordered another one .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure I wanted an SPF moisturiser, I am not sure if I like it, you need to use enough to feel like you had moisturiser on, but then to much and it comes off on my glassses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great texture I bought this brought last month and have been using most days. The texture is fine but I don't like the colour and think it could be better with a slight hint of a tan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great defence mineral cream SPF 25 Excellent SPF 25 cream for non white skin tones. Blends in well to natural skin colour, giving it a dewy glow. Usually mix it with Superskin moisturizer. Highly recommend it.

 Does this need makeup removal?

I have been desperate for something with an Spf and so was very excited when this came out even though it's very expensive for daily use but how can I prevent it forming rolls when I use foundation after?

Asked by: Daisie
Hello, thank you for getting in touch and for your feedback. Here are a few tips that might help make your mineral formula work for you: 1. Make sure you’re applying Environmental Defence Cream after your moisturiser – this will ensure you are protecting your skin’s natural barrier. Allowing the cream to sink in for at least 30 seconds – 1 minute can also make a big difference to how the formula sits on your skin before you apply your foundation. 2. You may find you get a better finish by applying Environmental Defence Cream to your face section by section. Dot generously onto the forehead, nose, cheeks and neck before gently blending with your fingertips one section at a time, ensuring you’re using enough cream to fully protect your skin. If you prefer an all-over approach that’s also okay – whatever works best for you! 3. Be gentle with your application. As our formula is rich in physical UV filters in powder form, over rubbing can cause a pilling effect where the minerals separate and accumulate on your skin. This can make it harder for them to blend in , especially when you’re using the defence cream before make up. 4. Check how much you’re applying – too much can lead to over rubbing and the above pilling effect may occur. We recommend using a grape sized amount to start and then determining if you need a little more or less depending on your particular skin type. We do hope this information helps. Quality and service are at the heart of everything we do, so please do not hesitate to contact our customer centre on 01983 813913 if you require any further assistance. - Liz Earle Beauty Co.
