Want to sneak sunscreen into your makeup and lotions, without the greasy effect? Corey tests out some new products…
“I grew up in South Florida in the 1980â€™s. Which (aside from an affinity for oversize neon shirts pulled to the side of my hip with a scrunchie) means that I have way more sun damage than your average 30-year old. I actually fear my dermatologist more than my dentist. This being said, I am always on the lookout for products that can both help repair the damage I have already done as well as shield me from further damage. Here are two of my favorite that do both:
1.) I read this, â€œApproved for sensitive skin. Allergy tested. Mineral oil free. Paraben-free, Oxybenzone-free. Water Resistant.â€ Then the title of the product pops at me: Ahava Anti-Aging Moisturizing Spray SPF 15. What?!?!? Letâ€™s break it down, Ladies.
* â€œAhavaâ€: An awesome Lab that focuses on using Dead Sea Minerals
* â€œAnti-Agingâ€: Pro-vitamin B5, to neutralize aging free-radicals
* â€œMoisturizingâ€: Vitamin E, no better substitute for adding moisture
* â€œSprayâ€: What?!?! Score! No gross hands!
* â€œSPF 15â€: I am sold. Done and done.
(The line also comes in SPF 30 and 50, so you really canâ€™t lose with this stuff!)
2.) Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Tinted Moisturizer SPF 50 has definitely become my daily go to product. First, how much time does it save? Lots! Instead of putting on 4 products (anti-oxidant serum, moisturizer, foundation, and sunblock) , I only smear on a dab of the velvety blend and am good to go. Second, it contains a bonus mixture of black licorice and tomato derivatives to brighten skin and diminish the appearance of sun-spots. Third, I believe that the â€œSPF 50â€ says it all, and I am never left smelling like I am wearing SPF 50.
I am so in love with these two products this spring that I donâ€™t even put them away when I am done; I use them both so frequently that I just leave them on my counter!
