Alba Botanica Sunscreen | Review + Giveaway
Although we had just welcomed the arrival of summer, I am already feeling the heat! So today, I wanted to share with you a great skincare brand and its new suncare offerings for the season. Made with 100% vegetarian, cruelty-free ingredients, Alba Botanica offers a full skincare and hair care range. For 2017, the brand is introducing two new spray sunscreens that provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. To read all about these products and learn how you can enter to win an Alba Botanica sunscreen giveaway, click......

Alba Botanica Sport Continuous Spray Sunscreen SPF 50+ & Kids Continuous Spray Sunscreen SPF 50+ ($16.99 CAD each):
This is a duo of chemical sunscreens made with active ingredients of avobenzone, homosalate, octinoxate, octisalate, and octocrylene. Both are housed in 177ml eco-friendly, air-powered aerosol cans that contain no chemical propellants. The sunscreen dispenses as a clear liquid, the aloe juice and algae-infused formulation is non-greasy and has virtually no fragrance. I personally love how quickly the product applies and absorbs as compared to traditional sunscreen lotions and the formulation is water and sweat resistant!

Alba Botanica Facial Sunscreen Lotion SPF 40 ($9.99 CAD):
Formulated with glycerin, lavender extract, and green tea extract, this is a chemical sunscreen lotion made especially for the face. Just like the two spray sunscreens, the product is scent-free. The formulation comes out white but blends to a streak-free finish. Although the texture is pretty lightweight and quick-absorbing, it leaves behind a slightly greasy residue on my combination skin. Therefore, it's probably more suitable for normal to dry skin.

Curious to try these three products from Alba Botanica? Head on over to my Instagram page to enter for a chance to win all three (valued at $44 CAD). The giveaway is open to Canada only, good luck!
Alba Botanica is available at Whole Foods, London Drugs, and in Canada.
