It’s Fri-Yay! I don’t know ’bout y’all, but it’s been A WEEK! Imma be having a glass
or four of wine tonight.
I use a ton of products on the daily. There’s something for everything nowadays so how do we choose what’s right for us?? Hmmm, good question! Every Friday, I am going to showcase products and give you my honest truth. From mascara to hairspray to moisturizer, I’m going to narrow down my favorites, why I love them, why I don’t, and try and give you some insight if they may be your perfect match.
I can’t talk about the importance of sunscreen enough. Whether it’s bright and sunny or gloomy and overcast, I’ve got by block on. Living in Florida will do that to you. I’ve also had a few scares with skin cancer, so I definitely am not taking any chances. Makeup and skincare brands have made it beyond easy to choose the right sunscreen for you and your skincare needs. There are zero excuses nowadays!
These are a few of my favorite sunscreens that I can’t live without. Start lathering up, ladies!
L to R:
Tarte Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion SPF30– I like to use a higher SPF so this one is great for those hot Summer months. I love that it is hypoallergenic and moisturizing so it isn’t going to break my skin out after a long day of wear. The texture is a bit greasy for my taste, but the protection is where it’s at, especially when I’m in the sun all day. It’s also vegan and paraben free!
Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF40– This stuff has changed everything about mixing sunscreen with makeup. I apply this in the morning under my makeup and I love the matte texture because it almost acts like a primer. It doesn’t affect my makeup and I know I have the protection of SPF40 all day long. Win, Win.
Sun Bum Zinc Oxide SPF50– When I’m laying oceanside or playing caddy to my husbands golf game, I always keep this in my bag. It goes on smoothly and blends into the skin without any white residue. It also contains aloe and vitamin E, great for those with sensitive skin. My husband also keeps this on hand for when he’s out surfing!
Tarte Tarteguard Mineral Powder Sunscreen SPF30– This is the easiest sunscreen to keep on hand! If I forget to add sunscreen in the morning, I just reach for this in my purse and apply a quick layer. You just click the bottom and start fluffing away! I apply to my face and chest a few times a day to make sure I’m getting the adequate amount of protection. The only con, if you do end up taking pictures after applying, it does create a white sheen to the face.
Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense– This is also another matte sunscreen that I use often. It works great alone or under makeup for added protection. I do find that it makes my skin a little oilier, but I add a little translucent powder over top to keep my skin matte. I am a big fan of the Skinceuticals brand and all the products I have purchased I’ve really enjoyed.
What are your sunscreen go-to’s??
