A beautiful, full-length orange dress by Elrico Zarr inspired by the colours of the Esthederm Adaptasun range

I recently attended a lovely champaign brunch with Esthederm – a French skincare brand who develop products that work in synergy with the skin’s biology.

This lovely get together was held at La Cotte in the Cape winelands and was hosted to give media a refresher on the Esthederm range of sun care products.

We were also treated to a range showing from local designer Elrico Bellingan of Elrico Zarr who showcased his spectacular SS23/24 collection.

I’m obsessed with the Elrico Zarr linen mustard coloured pinstripe suit with it’s cropped double-breasted jacket!

We were treated to mimosas on arrival, then sat down to a scrumptious brunch.

When it comes to luxury sun care, Esthederm is my top choice. I’ve blogged about their sun products previously HERE, HERE and HERE.

What makes the Esthederm sun range so unique?

The brand has focused its research on HOW skin interacts with the sun to maximise sun tolerance, while allowing for a long-lasting and safe tan.

Esthederm sun care products contain the brands ‘Global Cellular Protection’ technology that works to neutralize free radicals, protect cellular DNA and help fight against collagen degradation. The formula also contains the Esthederm ‘Cellular Water’ patent, which reproduces the qualities of water naturally contained in the skin.

Its unique sun protection factor, categorised as ‘Strong Sun’ (UV index 8 to 10), provides complete protection against UVA & UVB rays, infrared and invisible light that is responsible for photo-ageing. This allows for ultimate, prolonged sun protection while encouraging a deep, long-lasting tan.

I can’t wait to try the Esthederm Sun Protective Sun Care Oil Body & Hair. This dry oil for body & hair protects from sun radiation. It boosts the tanning process by stimulating melanin production to achieve a long, lasting tan. The nourishing texture absorbs quickly, but intensively hydrates the skin.

One of the most underrated skincare products is an after sun lotion. The Esthederm Tan Enhancing Lotion nourishes and soothes the skin after sun exposure. The formula absorbs quickly, leaving skin soft, silky and soothed. This formula also makes your tan last longer. You can apply it to the whole body – face included- after sun exposure. You can also use it to enhance your tan after your holiday by using it daily in place of your regular moisturiser.
