SABON 'Lavender Apple' Body Scrub Review

Hi everyone!
SABON is an Israeli brand, but they also have stores abroad. They sell mostly different kinds of soaps, based on a 70 year old Australian formula. SABON specializes in creating a personal and exciting experience, developing care products for the body and the soul and viewing atmosphere as part of the experience. I really like to visit this store and I think that there is a special atmosphere in there. Recently I purchased this body scrub from SABON and I thought it might interest you to know what I personally think about this product. So... Let's start!

Vichy Capital Soleil Micro-Fluid SPF 50+ VS. La Roche-Posay Antelios XL Extreme Fluid SPF 50+

Hi everyone!
I did a little research on two very similar products with actually the same purpose - to protect us from sunscreen. At first, I thought that they are the same thing with different labels, but they don't. So, what's the deal with this product in general? This product gives your skin the optimal protection against the dangerous effects of the sun mainly incluced by UVB and UVA rays. It's really important to use this kind of products in the summer I think. So, what actually UVB and UVA rays do?
UVB - They stimulate tanning and are mainly responsible for damage.
UVA - They deeply penetrate the skin and can reach the dermis. UVA rays are more insidious because they are painless. They can accelerate skin aging and can cause sun intolerances (Polymorphous Light Eruption) and hyperpigmentations (pregnancy mask, brown spots).
UVA, as well as UVB, may cause invisible damage to skin cells DNA and can lead to skin cancers on the long term.
This facial liquid emulsion absorbed very quickly to the skin and doesn't keep your skin oily or shiny as the most sunscreen protecting products do. It perfectly matches to problematic or sensitive skin. It says that this product doesn't block the pores or cause to breakouts. So, what's the difference between these two products?
