Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh review

I love it when little surprises arrive through the post and this gorgeous personalised bag put a huge smile on my face when the postie delivered it. I love the bright red colour and the polka dots and the fact that it has my name on it means that Sophie won't be able to pinch it - hahaha !

Things just got even better when I opened it up though. It contains a fab selection of the new Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh range. It suddenly dawned on me when I turned over the calendar to May last week that the summer is almost here - two more months and the school year will be over, three months and we'll be heading off to Kusadasi in Turkey. Woohoo !

The new Nivea range sounds ideal for our trip to Turkey because it combines instant protection with an innovative refreshing, cooling effect on the skin - perfect for topping up the sun protection when out and about or lazing by the pool.

We received (from left to right)  : 

Protect & Refresh 30 Sun Lotion - Nivea promise a new generation of sun care with a non-sticky, ultra-moisturising consistency and added menthol for a cooling sensation on the skin. A well-balanced combination of silky powder and soothing oils nourishes the skin while protecting it. It's water-resistant and offers UVA and UVB protection. A 200ml bottle contains enough for six adult full-body applications when used correctly.

Protect & Refresh 20 Invisible Cooling Mist - A light refreshing mist that offers protection while cooling the skin with its fine droplets. It has a 360° valve so it can give a constant spray from all angles, even upside down.

Protect & Refresh 30 Invisible Cooling Sun Spray - Relaunched with an improved formula that offers a cooling effect and is instantly absorbed by the skin for immediate protection and no oiliness, stickiness or white residue.

Protect & Refresh 50 Invisible Cooling Mist 

In-Shower Refreshing After Sun Lotion - This sounds great because I usually dislike the sticky, greasy feel of regular after-sun lotion. You apply it in the shower on wet skin after your shower gel, smooth it in then rinse off for instantly nourished, soothed skin with no residue.

I've spotted that pretty much the whole range is on half-price offer at Boots at the moment so now's a great time for stocking up on your summer essentials.

Disclosure : I received the products in order to write an honest review.
