With the recent hot weather we’ve been having, I thought I ought to up my sun protection game and this season my chosen brand is Alteya Organics.
It’s best to choose a broad spectrum sunscreen. Broad spectrum means it covers you from both UVA and UVAB rays. UVA rays are responsible for premature ageing, wrinkling and age spots. UVAB in the one that causes your sun to burn. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor.
Alteya Certified Organic Rose Otto Face Sunscreen SPF25 50ml
This Rose Otto Face Sunscreen is a broad spectrum sun cream with an SPF of 25. The packaging for this is really pleasing. It comes in a cardboard box printed with all the information and inside is a black glass bottle with a pump action top.
This product is certified organic. As I’m typing this, I’ sat here with a blob on my hand so I can describe to you the consistency and it smells gorgeous. You can really smell the roses. The consistency is of a light moisturiser and rubs in really well. I would recommend applying a moisturiser before putting this one on though because I feel like your skin would benefit from the extra moisture or it might drag across your skin a little. As you can see below, it’s a nude beige/pink in colour but it rubs providing a sheer tint.
Priced at £25, I think it’s good value for what you get. I can imagine this product will last me (and my teenage daughter, no doubt!) a good few months.

I’m really happy with this purchase and I’m sure I’ll be repurchasing it in the future.
Alteya Certified Organic Sunscreen Whole Body SPF30 90ml
This product comes in a plastic tube and you squeeze the tube to release the product. Honestly, I was surprised the tube was so little, I’m not sure how many applications you’ll get out of it, but I do like the cream. At £13.40, I think this product is really affordable. The colour of the product also surprised me, I’ve only ever seen white sunscreen so when I squeezed some product out to find it was a light beige I wondered what to expect.
It does rub in to be completely invisible. It smells very, very mildly of spice to me.
As with the face sunscreen, this is also a broad spectrum with an SPF of 30. I’ve also used this on my face whilst I was out and it was perfect. No burning for me! It’s water resistant for 40 minutes and suitable for everyday use.
