Iubesc soarele, caldura, lumina, vara, marea, nisipul, rochitele si slapii de plaja. Nu prea ma impac cu frigul, ploaia, ceata, hainele groase, cizmele. Asa ca poate intrebarea logica ar fi “Ce cauti la Polul Nord?” :). Ei bine, povestea e lunga, poate in alt post, dar asa a fost sa fie…

Dupa ce m-am mutat aici am ramas mereu uimita de anotimpurile norvegiene. Primavara-vara ziua devine din ce in ce mai lunga, pot zice ca nu este intuneric de-a binelea vreodata. Toamna-iarna zilele sunt din ce in ce mai scurte, si nu prea mai vezi soarele. Locuind si in Bergen unde ploua foarte des si muuuulllltttttt as putea zice ca aici este Polul Ploii nu Polul Nord. La inceput totul a fost OK si interesant, dar dupa vreo 5 ani de locuit aici am observat ca tenul meu a inceput sa aiba o sensibilitate la lumina soarelui. Apoi s-a agravat din ce in ce mai tare, de fiecare data cand “ma vedea soarele” instantaneu aveam bubite rosii pe maxilare cu mancarimi.

Salvarea mea a fost si este crema La Roche Posay Anthelios Xl 50+ Tinted Fluid cu factor de protectie 50+ pe care am cumparat-o dintr-o farmacie din Romania. Un flacon micut, finut, usor de tinut in geanta, contine o crema foarte fluida, usor de aplicat pe piele, extrem de repede absorbita. Tenul ramane curat dupa aplicare (nu straluceste) crema nu contine parfum, nu contine paraben, are continut scazut de filtre chimice. Crema ofera o protectie mare si larga impotriva UVA: datorita compusilor organici Mexoryl SX si XL care se compenseaza reciproc si au actiuni benefice asupra pielii; si UVB: un protector celular natural Senna Alata.


– crema se absoarbe foarte repede in piele, aveti grija sa acoperiti toata fata si toate zonele;

– aplicati crema de zi, lasati sa se abosarba bine in piele si apoi aplicati crema de protectie solara;

– avand factor de protectie UVA/UVB foarte ridicat pe zonele aplicate nu te prea bronzezi. Aveti grija la efectul estetic :);

– la sfarsitul zilei nu uitati sa va demachiati si sa indepartati crema de pe fata;

Concluzie: Nu conteaza unde am fost, pe munte in Bergen-in Romani-la oceanul Pacific-la marea Mediterana; nu conteaza anotimpul: iarna-vara… aceasta crema este nelipsita din geanta sau din buzunar si o aplic de cateva ori pe zi. Prefer sa stiu ca nu ma bronzez pe fata decat sa am o alergie urata sau Doamne Fereste un cancer de piele. Asa ca nu uitati sa va protejati fata de razele soarelui, chiar daca folositi o crema cu factor de protectie mai mic. Folositi-o… nu stiti niciodata cand va poate salva “pielea” :).

I love the sun, its warmth, the light, the summer, the sea, the sand, beach dresses and slippers. I do not get along very much with cold weather, the rain, fog, thick clothes and boots. So probably the logical question would be “what are you doing at the north pole?” Well, the story is very long, perhaps in another post, but so it was meant to be…

After I moved here I was always amazed by the Norwegian seasons. During spring-summer the day becomes longer and longer, I could say that it never gets really dark. During autumn-winter the days become shorter and shorter and you do not get to see the sun very much. Living in Bergen where it rains a loooot and very often I could say that here is the Rain Pole not the north pole. In the beginning it was OK and interesting, but after about 5 years of living here I noticed that my complexion started to get a certain sensitivity to sunlight. Then it got worse, every time the sun “saw “me I instantly got small itchy red dots on my jaws.

My salvation was and is the La Roche Posay Anthelios Xl 50+ Tinted Fluid cream with a 50+ protection factor which I bought from a pharmacy in Romania. A small recipient, nice, easy to hold in my purse, it contains a slightly more fluid cream, easy to apply on the skin, it gets absorbed very fast. My complexion remains clean after applying it (it does not shine). The cream does not contain any perfume, nor parabens, it has a low chemical filter content. The cream offers a high and wide protection against UVA: due to the organic compounds Mexoryl SX and XL which compensate each other and have a beneficial effect on the skin; and UVB: a Senna Alata natural cellular protection.


– the cream absorbs very fast in the skin, be careful to cover the whole face and all the desired areas;

– apply the day cream, leave it to absorb well and then apply the sunscreen cream;

– having a UVA/UVB protection factor you won’t get tanned much. Take care about the aesthetic effect :);

– at the end of the day do not forget to use a make-up remover and get the cream off from your face;

Conclusion: It does not matter where I went, on the mountains in Bergen- in Romania- at the Pacific ocean or the Mediterranean, it does not matter the season: winter-summer, this cream is indispensable from my purse or pocket and I use it a few times a day. I prefer to know that I will not get a tan than have a nasty allergic reaction on my face or God forbid some skin cancer. So don’t forget to protect  your face from the sun rays, even if you use a cream with a lower protection factor. Use it…. you would never know when it will save your “skin” :). From me it gets 5 lilies.
