3rd August 2016 Journal

The ALBUS & FLORA journey started high in the French Alps in the winter of 2013. I’m super excited to finally launch the brand in 2016 and can’t wait to find out what our adventures will bring and where our journey will take us!

Our journal pages, launching soon,  will celebrate today’s modern active lifestyles, they will offer a place to escape, to day-dream, to be inspired.  The ALBUS & FLORA journal will go beyond skin and sun care, and into all manner of topics from travel & adventure, lifestyle & wellness, beauty & style, food & health. You can expect to be greeted with hints and tips to support you every day, every season and through every adventure, large and small.

Here’s to shared adventures and great views!

  • Nude Flora has been such popular shade this month.  A subtle peachy nude that gives the lips a sheer yet neutral look.  Looks great on all skin tones, and particularly pretty on fair complexions & hair colours. ⁣A favourite with those who are not a fan of pink or red shades! ⁣⠀

  • Lots of lovely Naked Flora arriving with our stockists in Hong Kong and Spain this week!⠀
⠀
UVA rays are present all year round irrespective of season, and are just as strong and damaging to the skin on cloudy days as sunny days...... but as we move from winter, to spring to summer the strength of UVB rays begins to increase and can cause further damage and result in dry peeling lips. ⠀
⠀
If you are off skiing this half term and Easter, it’s worth knowing that the strength of both UVA and UVB increases by 10% with every 1000m climbed - unprotected skin on the face and lips can burn very easily. So make sure you apply broad spectrum UVA/UVB spf30 protection and apply regularly through the day.

  • Meet Toby, the cutest skier on the hill, and the son of my lovely friends, totally loving the fact he said "my lipstick mummy" a boy after my own heart! ⠀
⠀
Never too early to teach good sun & skincare, and with lots of lovely snow, brilliant blue sunny skies and half term skiing just round the corner,  protection against UV damage is key.⠀
⠀
Protect the whole family, with our balms which offer full UVA/UVB SPF30, protect against cold sores (which are often activated by high UV loads) and are packed full of natural oils to nourish & hydrate.  Clear for the boys and children and a range of sheer tinted balms for those who like a little shine and colour. ⠀
