KIKO City Filter Sunscreen SPF50

LOVE! The KIKO City Filter Sunscreen SPF50 was sent out to me on the exact morning that all this beautifully hot weather started.

Me and the other half were getting ready to spend a day out in the gorgeous heat with Fish & Chips in the park, and just as we were about to leave, I’d realised neither of us had put on sun protection.

This was in the Jiffy bag sat on the kitchen table, so as we were heading out the door, I grabbed it and shoved it in my bag. When we’d parked up, I whipped it out and slapped it on both of us. Well. What a surprise!

Firstly, it’s 12,90€ (I couldn’t find it on the UK site but if you’re abroad in Europe this summer, you should be able to find it) which for an SPF50 is an excellent. Secondly, it smells of vanilla! Thirdly it’s very hydrating, and even though on first contact it feels like it’s going to be too heavy and rich, it sank into our oily/combination skin like a dream. Finally, it’s paraben free, non-comedogenic and is completely invisible.

I’m a bit in love with KIKO; a great budget yet high-performance skincare, bodycare and makeup brand. You can check out my other posts on products from KIKO here.

I’m totally in love with KIKO products too! I did my friends makeup this weekend for her wedding. She was going to buy expensive dept. store brands as she has just moved to Germany and wasn’t sure what was available. I told her to go to KIKO to get shadow, primer, concealer and foundation and it worked like a dream!

I like City Block too, but even that isn’t working like it used to. Thanks for this post Thom. I’m going to see if I can get my hands on the Kiko product.

It really is. Haha I thought the same as I was typing out the name. I’ve long since been a user of city block but as it only goes up to an SPF40, this is definitely my replacement.

The ingredients of KIKO products aren’t always amazing (although are sometimes), it is a budget line, but their products deliver really fantastic results more often than not! Let me know if you try anything!

This sounds awesome Thom. Sounds a lot like Clinique’s City Block which is an all-time favourite of mine. I have heard loads of good stuff about KIKO so definitely keen to give it a go. :-)
