Cycle-Proof Make Up: The Best SPF Moisturisers

SPF moisturisers that help hydrate your skin from harsh weather conditions, whilst providing a strong protection from the Sun's UV rays.

Cycle Proof Make Up: The Best Waterproof Mascaras

juice Beauty SPF 30 Tinted Mineral Moisturiser:

If you’re looking for a thick, tinted, daily SPF moisturiser made from organic ingredients, than this may be your perfect match.

With a formula that also doubles up as a bb cream, you can chose from four different shades to give your skin a healthy, natural glow.

We think cyclists will like the product’s extremely think consistency, that feels more like a suncream, as it ensures your skin gets maximum hydration and protection before heading outside for a ride.

The product’s antioxidant rich grape and pomegranate juices bursting inside give it a lovely natural scent, which we think may be a little to strong for a daily moisturiser.

Price: £24.95, available from Cosmetics Now (More info juiceBeauty).

Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 Daily Defense Moisturiser:

You can always rely on Clinique to bring out a great range of beauty products that you know are full of antioxidants and high SPF factors.

The moisturiser’s barley and wheat germ extracts help to lock in moisture for the entire day, whilst the Sea Whip and caffeine work together to reduce any irritation, great for cyclists with sensitive skin!

We love how light the texture feels, making it a great daily product which is easy to apply as a base under bb+cc creams and foundations.

Price: £39.00, available from Clinique.

Kiehls Ultra Facial SPF 30 Moisturiser:

Providing strong UVA and UVB protection, Kiehls Ultra Facial SPF 30 Moisturiser makes an ideal light-weight daily moisturiser, perfect for wearing underneath your make up.

Having been originally made containing SPF 15, this improved version of the product is much more effective for cyclists who regularly endure the Sun’s harsh impact on their skin.

As it’s quite an oily substance, the product sinks into your skin immediately, therefore only a little is needed, giving you more for your money than other SPF moisturisers. And with an extremely reasonable price, we also like how this product is fragrance-free!

Price: £17.00, available from House of Fraser.

H20+ Face Oasis SPF 30 Hydrating Lotion:

The H20+ Facd Oasis SPF 30 Hydrating Lotion is made with marine botanical ingredients for an intense, natural-feeling hydration.

With a non-greasy gel like formula, a small amount absorbs onto the skin quickly than most moisturisers and encourages skin firming with its natural sea lettuce and fennel extracts.

It’s refreshing formula releases powerful vitamin antioxidants C and E on your skin once exposed to sunlight, offering maximum protection to those who need it the most.

The product isn’t suited for cyclists prone to sensitive skin prone as its ingredients can cause a slight irritation!

Price: £26.00 (RRP £32.00) , available from Marks & Spencer.

Origins a Perfect World SPF 25 Age-Defence Moisturiser with White Tea:

Origins SPG 25 Age-Defence formula works wonders to gently firm skin, helping to prevent and minimise wrinkles and lines caused by the Sun’s UV Rays.

Although it has a thick creamy consistency, the product stays put underneath your make-up without slipping or sliding, perfect for applying before your morning commute.

Bursting with natural products that are good to your skin, including Silver Tip White Tea, Vitamin E and C and, French Maritime Pine The only downside we have with this is the price tag, being quite expensive for a product we would use on a daily basis.

Price: £36.00, available from Origins.
