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 […]

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 love my […]

Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense: The Art of Self-Defense

This new formulation of Kiehl’s UV Defense Total Sun Block is miraculous. I loved the old formula, though it was a bit thick and heavy – great for beach days, but when I’ve got a full face of makeup, that’s the last thing I want to slather on beforehand. With SPF 50+, you are getting […]
