Foundation with SPF in is flying off the shelves at Boots, these are the three bestsellers

Since the start of ITV’s Love Island and the unveiling of the UK green list, John Lewis has reported a huge uplift in sales of SPF and now, Boots too has revealed it has also seen foundation with SPF in it flying off the shelves.

Perhaps it’s no surprise really given that using a foundation with SPF in it kills two birds with one stone; offering a certain degree of coverage and providing crucial sun protection.

Speaking to Boots, Love Island‘s Laura Whitmore also dubbed foundation with SPF in it one of her beauty essentials. She said, ‘A lot of foundations that I use have SPF in it, to protect you from the sun, so that would probably be my favourite. I think good skin is really important, especially under camera lights and if you’re outside in the natural sunlight. It’s something that makes the skin look dewy but not sweaty.’
