Shopping for Bali’s Great Outdoors
Excuse us for the pun we use for the the title, although we mean it both literally and figuratively. It’s because a lot of us see shopping as a form of enjoyment; and this promotes mental wellbeing. Also, since this is the ‘sports and fitness issue’, we’d like to use our monthly shopping section to encourage you to hit the store to buy something perfect for those active days in Bali’s great outdoors!
Designed with surfers in mind, Sensatia Botanicals’ Surf Naked Sunscreen is an all-natural, water-resistant sunscreen that offers heavyweight protection against UVA and UVB rays. The unique formula uses just three natural ingredients including mineral-rich zinc, coconut oil and candelila wax, so it is good for your skin and for the environment. Zinc oxide protects against UVA and UVB rays and is known to have healing properties. Coconut oil is an excellent emollient. Candelila wax acts as a natural water-resistant barrier.
In addition to the sunscreen, those who enjoy getting active outdoor can benefit from Sensatia’s recently launched Aloe & Cucumber Facial Mist, which performs by giving skin an instant boost of hydration at any time. The all-natural formula is gentle enough for all skin types including sensitive skin. Featuring cucumber seed oil, aloe leaf and plant-derived sodium hyaluronate, this mist helps to hydrate and soothe irritated skin, leaving skin feeling cool, calm and re-energised. Designed as a hydration booster, Aloe & Cucumber Facial Mist is recommended to be applied on face and neck after sun exposure or whenever skin needs an extra boost of moisture. It helps relieve the discomfort of dry skin, keeping it well hydrated and refreshed.
