Hey Loves, it’s been a very long time, I hope you are well!
So, We all know sunscreen is 365 days a year right, not just sunny days right?! I don’t need to go over the importance of sunscreen or threaten or scare you into using sunscreen? Because you already know you’re Supposed to as it’s the most important skincare step?! If you need more convincing, read my OG sunscreen post here ! Ok glad we covered that 😂. Moving on, a few months back, A lovely friend gifted me this Blackgirlsunscreen SPF30, I go through sunscreen pretty fast so you can guess I’m already out of this, this is a hyped sunscreen that’s deserving of all the hype. I like that it’s moisturizing, no fuss and I can reapply every two hours without clogging my pores or feeling heavy.
I recently started using the Eltamd skincare UV Sunscreen and I have to say, it’s really good. I’d give it a 9 out of 10, taking one for myself because it pills 😩 , I did figure out a way to make it work, another friend gifted me the UV Shield by the same brand and that seems to work better for me, I love both a lot so I only reapply with the UV clear now, but can get away with using UV shield in the morning!
The Replenix sunscreen is a physical sunscreen, it is packed with tons of antioxidants, it gives a little white cast some days and other days, none at all and so I don’t use it a lot.
Sokoglam was kind enough to send me their new Visor and i cannot wait to look cool with it while I shield myself from sun rays LOL.
If you know me, you already know how much I LOVE everything PAULA’S CHOICE, check my IG FEED! They recently gifted me their YOUTH-EXTENDING DAILY HYDRATING FLUID SPF 50, the LIPSCREEN SPF50 and their Smoothing Primer Serum SPf30 (not pictured), all of which are currently on sale. I already started using the SPF 50 and lip balm with SPF 50 too, both of which I LOVE, I used the Youth Extending SPF 50 before my makeup and it didn’t ruin it, no residue or greasiness, it’s pretty awesome especially for oily/combo skin. If you have dry skin, they have like 15 other sunscreen products that will absolutely work for you. I haven’t tried the primer SPF 30 just yet as I don’t wear makeup a lot.
You do need to use sunscreen before your makeup, DO NOT RELY ON THE SUNSCREEN IN YOUR MOISTURIZER OR MAKEUP!!!! That is not nearly enough to protect your skin AT ALL! So a sunscreen primer, sunscreen setting sprays, sunscreen in setting powder forms will greatly help.
Sun Protection is really important people so let’s not treat it like it’s optional.
Thank You so much for taking out time to read this post, means a lot to me. Have a great week ahead!! You are SO loved.
