Philosophy Help Me SPF 30 Retinol Day Treatment

For the longest time the only thing I looked to Philosophy for were bath/body products (think Mimosa scented body wash), which now I can’t even believe! For some reason a company that made Cinnamon Buns body products didn’t seem like a brand that I could trust to make skincare that won’t leave me broken out. … Continue reading Philosophy Help Me SPF 30 Retinol Day Treatment

Shu Uemura UV Armor High-Protection Sun-Protector Face Cream: Armed and Safe

The first thing I do when I arrive in Asia is go Shu Uemura shopping. I try all the colors at the counter, a tradition I truly miss at home in the States. Even though I can shop online in the US, certain products are still unavailable, and I have no idea why. Like the … Continue reading Shu Uemura UV Armor High-Protection Sun-Protector Face Cream: Armed and Safe

Soleil Organique Sunscreen

If you aren’t convinced that Soleil Organique is stellar from Beauty Snob Kelly’s reviews, hopefully this will convince you. The brand specializes in SPF products including ones for areas often overlooked like the hands and eyes, so it’s little surprise that when it comes to traditional suncare products for the face and body, they’ve got … Continue reading Soleil Organique Sunscreen

Hampton Sun Continuous Mists

I’m in Vegas at the moment and though it’s “only” 106 degrees – i.e. less than the 110 degrees I’ve been practicing hot yoga in – it’s still quite dangerous for someone as pale as I am to be laying out in the sun. Sadly, given how pale I am, I love the heat, especially … Continue reading Hampton Sun Continuous Mists

Soleil Organique Environmental Defense Anti-Aging Primer: The Sun’s Got Nothing On You Now

I am obsessed with the Soleil Organique line, especially now that is summer and my outdoor activities are reaching an all-year high. Plain, old sunscreen is just not enough anymore. This fabulous serum primes your skin for the sunblock you apply on top, so you get maximum protection and nourishment. Any environmental toxins that would … Continue reading Soleil Organique Environmental Defense Anti-Aging Primer: The Sun’s Got Nothing On You Now

Eshu Moisturizing Sunscreen: Quench the Sun

What could possibly be so different about yet another broad-spectrum protection sunscreen? Yes, Eshu’s sunscreen moisturizes, as its title suggests, but it also smells heavenly! (Ironic that the best-smelling lotion comes from a brand that was concocted for men, huh?) So not only do you get the benefits of SPF30 – the Australian brand designs … Continue reading Eshu Moisturizing Sunscreen: Quench the Sun

Boost Your Sunscreen: Save Face

You think your foundation with SPF sunscreen is enough coverage for most days? Think again! An article from the Wall Street Journal states that only one out of five people wear sunscreen correctly and consistently each day! The article breaks down what you actually need to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays: 1. Antioxidant … Continue reading Boost Your Sunscreen: Save Face

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid Extreme: Better Than Shade

I’m going to Cancun next week – yes, I’m doing a classic spring-break locale! Half of my suitcase will consist of sunblock and sunblocking items (hats, hats, and more hats). I used to use a Shiseido sunscreen, which is very similar to La Roche-Posay’s ultra-light formula, but it was so greasy and made my complexion … Continue reading La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra-Light Sunscreen Fluid Extreme: Better Than Shade

Pur~lisse Pur~Protect SPF30: Save Face

My New Year’s beauty resolutions: drink more water, don’t fall asleep with makeup on, and don’t skip the sunscreen! I am actually pretty good about all of these, but, of course, there is always room for improvement. Especially in the sunscreen department (which should not be missed, not even for a day). I love my … Continue reading Pur~lisse Pur~Protect SPF30: Save Face
