SUN & TAN - LAVOZON SUN PROTECTION STICK FOR KIDS SPF 50+

Hi everyone,

few years ago I reviewed a ton of sunscreen, sunblock and after sun products. During the past few years I've been trying out more sun care products, as I'm pale as snow (not in the moment after few lovely days in Aix En Provence, but usually yes:)) and I need usually extra protection, to avoid transforming myself into a red crusty crab.


Therefore I though to start another serie of different sun care product reviews under "Sun & Tan", well whether I'll get a nice bronze tan or not is still in the clouds but at least these products are interesting or have catched me a lot, therefore I want to share it with you, my beloved readers:)

Well this product from Lavozon (which you'll get in each Müller drugstore in Germany, Austria, Spain etc. - just check out their website to select the store in your country) is primarily made for children and toodlers, but I'd recommend it to you guys, if you tend to get sensitive skin (especially on your face) while wearing sun care products.


I really do tend to get red spots on my face (nose and cheek or neck area) as well as on my upper arms. This stick is therefore perfect, not only the tasty fresh apricot/peach scent reminds me on a specific jam I ate as a kid' but don't worry, I won't eat it!:) as well as it doesn't tend to get greasy after re-applying or wearing almost a day. 

Ingredients:


50+ sounds for very light and pale skin types still not enough and I guess some of you also tried to find a SPF/LSF 100 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, UK and and and but a very wise lady behind the counter in a local pharmacy store has described me the difference between 50+ and 100 and you know what?! It's almost the same! It doesn't count to have a sunscreen with SPF 100 what's more important to have both protection for UVA and UVB!

Lavozon Sun Protection Stick for Kids with SPF 50+ - 2.95€ (Müller Online Shop)

Plus this one was a bargain, as you'd pay usually for sun screen sticks between 15 € and 30 € this one won't hurt even a student pocket as it's available for just 2.95€!:)

Yours,

MARABU - DIY SAILOR PINEAPPLE SHIRT*

Hi guys,

you should already know, that my passion for pineapple home decoration, patterns on different clothes items, cookie cutter etc. is HUGE!:) Therefore I inspired myself for another DIY tutorial with the highend Marabu textile painters*, fashion sprays*, which are available in a ton of different colors and shades.


First of all you'll need a white plain cotton shirt. I've bought mine at H&M, as I don't have a lot old white shirts, which I'd love to re-decorate, therefore I had to buy one, but if you have or tend to have a huge variety of old shirts in white, black or creme shade - go for it! And of course you'll need some textile painter* (thicker ones here) and fashion sprays* - which shade?! That's your own choice, I've choosen simply a dark blue textile pencil (the thick one), a light grey pencil (the thin one).


There is an huge selection of thick textile pencils by Marabu but I found, that for detailed patterns you shouldn't forget to get some thinner one too, just that you aren't surprised if your pattern will look not as 3D as if you'd use first a thin and than a thicker one.


I'm definitely not the best painter on earth, but I tried my best and tried to paint as much as possible pineapples, in different shapes and designs.


Unfortunately the pineapples aren't really visible on the pic' above, as the light grey shade reflects almost the same as the white cotton blouse itself the sun light. On each arm I decorated the end with stripes as well as on the collar, to create a kind of 50s maritime sailor look.

Did you've already tried out to create your individual shirt with Marabu textile painters* or fashion sprays*?!

Yours,
