AFTER THE SUN AND AFTER THE FUN
After spending time outdoors and having fun under the sun, we tend to forget to care for our skin. To maintain the health of the entire family’s skin and prevent it from further sun-damage, we recommend using all-natural skincare and bodycare products from Swiss-based brand, Essentially Lili.
Essentially Lili’s Natural Baby Moisturising Oil is gentle enough to apply on babies and kids up to 11 years of age from face to feet. Using only natural ingredients consisting of Calendula, Apricot Kernel Oil with Lavender, Roman Chamomile and Palmarosa, this calming baby oil helps maintain their skin’s natural oils and keeps it well nourished to prevent peeling and dryness from being under the sun for too long.
For the adults, we simply adore the Jazz Body Butter. Made with rich cocoa butter and infused with jasmine and lemongrass essential oils, the soothing fragrance of this unisex moisturizing balm transports us back to the spa at Club Med Bintan Island.
Essentially Lili is handmade in Switzerland using 100% all-natural ingredients with no added chemicals or unnatural preservatives. Check out www.essentiallylili.com for more on their product range.
