Summer is still going strong and so is the SUN! I have never been a huge sunbather or spent hours lying in the sun tanning, I prefer to read a book under an umbrella. I also wear lots of sunscreen and wear a hat whenever I am out in the sun.
I want to use products with clean ingredients, that includes Sunscreen.
I have been on the hunt for more clean beauty brands for my skincare and particularly sunscreen. I am obsessed with the ilia products (see my post here) and really like SuperGoop!.
Do you hate getting makeup all over your mask?
I can’t believe we have to think about what we put on our faces under our masks, but we do. It is pretty crazy to see how much makeup comes off inside my mask and let’s not talk about lipgloss! I seem to always put on my lipgloss right before I put on my mask 🙁
I have been using the Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint for everyday wear because I like that it has some color in it to even out my skin and is SPF 40. It does come off a little on my mask, but it is worth it to keep my skin sun-free and my body COVID free.
If I am not seeing anyone or exercising, I have been wearing my EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46. My dermatologist recommended it and I like that it works really well with my sensitive skin. It is not heavy or greasy and feels nice on my skin even in the high humidity.
Last year at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I bought the SuperGoop! Antioxidant SPF 50 Body Mist pack of 3 and am just now finishing my last bottle (it is still available in this year’s sale for $42 ). It is so easy to spray it on and go! I really like it.
Darn, this sunscreen has the dreaded white cast that doesn’t go away!
I recently bought the CeraVe Hydrating 100% Mineral SPF 50 Body Lotion to try because I wanted to put on an SPF lotion in the morning before I get dressed that would not be oily, too thick and white. I want it to be a moisturizing lotion with a higher SPF. The CeraVe says lightweight and non-greasy on the bottle and I had high hopes.
The CeraVeIt is thicker than I had hoped and the white cast sticks around for a long time. I put it on one leg and nothing on the other. I walked around like that all day.. and the CeraVe leg was still noticeably whiter at the end of the day and still felt like I had thick sunscreen on. Darn!!! It is not a huge loss because I can use it for days I am at the beach or pool.
Now I need Help! What is the best Lightweight Lotion with SPF that is clean and perfect for every day… one I can wear with clothes and not feel sticky, white or greasy? Leave me a comment and let me know… Please 🙂
Update! I hear this is a great everyday moisturizer with SPF and this one is great for under makeup! I can’t wait to try them!
to buy: Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint / EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 / SuperGoop! Antioxidant SPF 50 Body Mist / CeraVe Hydrating 100% Mineral SPF 50 Body Lotion / SuperGoop! Handscreen SPF 40
I highly recommend the Elta MD Skincare UV Sport Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen. It has transparent coverage. It is oil free & suitable for all skin types. Plus, it is water resistant (80 minutes)
I play golf and have been very happy with Banana Boat “Light As Air” spf 50+ lotion for a body sunscreen. It comes in a tube. Label says “Broad Spectrum “Weightless Protection” and “Absorbs quickly and non-greasy.” I have found this to be true. It has a light scent that doesn’t bother me.
