For those of who you don’t know, I have just got back from the beautiful sunny Barcelona and this is just everything that I needed. This post is in collaboration with Green People.
**All criticism is my own and I can hands down say that I am being 100% honest when talking about these products**

What Products Will I Be Reviewing?
I was lucky enough to receive two full-size bottles from the Green People’s sun care range. One being the EDELWEISS SUN LOTION which is a NATURAL TAN ACCELERATOR and the SCENT FREE SUN LOTION which is REEF SAFE OCEAN-FRIENDLY.
The Scent Free Sun Lotion is reef safe, ocean-friendly, non-irritating, non-greasy, 84% organic, and water repellent with an SPF of 30 high. This sun cream is perfect for sensitive skin and is UVB and UVA protected, just like the other one. It is designed to care for sensitive skin and is naturally free from synthetic fragrance and essential oils. This bottle is priced at £22.50.
I only used this suncare lotion on day 1 of my 5-day holiday. This isn’t because it was bad in any way, I just preferred using the natural tan accelerator as I wanted to get an even glow. I thought this one slightly more liquidized which rubbed in smoother and more evenly than the other one. It is 100% scent-free as I cannot smell any scent. If I had to describe a smell, I would describe it as a similar smell to dermal cream. It is still fresh but in a different way. I would recommend using this one if you are exposed to the sun a lot or are spending days directly in the heat, in a pool, or sunbathing. It has a relatively high SPF and would protect those areas which needed it most. I put some of this one on my forehead, shoulders, and elbows as those are the places which get burnt fastest usually, and also, I have eczema on my elbows, and this helped it a lot.
The Natural Tan Accelerator is non-irritating, non-greasy, 86% organic, and water repellent. It has an SPF of 15 medium and is perfect for sensitive skin. It has UVA and UVB, also known as aging and burning protection. This natural tan accelerator speeds up the tanning process by 25% and reduces fading by 50%. This bottle is priced at £21.50.
I absolutely loved using this product and out of the two, this one is my favorite. I found it was very hydrating, non-sticky, and enhanced a natural-looking tan. I LOVE the smell of this sun cream as it smells so fresh, almost like flowers which I like. I used this one 4/5 days of my holiday and I do believe that even know I had sun cream on, I still managed to get an even coverage of a tan. It did not leave any stains on my clothing, and I applied this approximately 3 times a day. More importantly, when I got out of the pool. I can now say hand on my heart that I will be using this self-tanning sun care in the future.
