No matter what you wear, how beautiful you smell, how nice your hair looks and so forth, if you have sunburn, everyone is going to zero in on that. Let’s look at how Donna and Jackie figured that out…
BURN!!!!! I love that scene. These ladies are trying to look their hottest, but apparently, there is an issue with being too much of a hottie. Today’s blog is going to be all about sunscreen. I want to be able to take better care of my skin this summer and well, for the rest of my life, so I think that the best place to start is sunscreen. If you’re anything like me, you are a person who is constantly on the go. You go for that makeup that will last you all day because you need it to. You keep a pair of flats in your car in case you need to switch out of your heels later. You need the strongest hairspray so that your hairstyle can survive the whole day and you try not to let the little things slow you down.
I found 5 sunscreens that work really well and I wanted to share it with you all. These sunscreens are primarily used for your face, but I recommend applying sunscreen on your chest if you are wearing a low cut blouse and even applying some on your shoulders if you are wearing a tank top. Another important place to put sunscreen on is the top of your hands. We want our skin to look young and healthy for as long as possible, but the skin on top of your hands can also give away your age! Start protecting the top of your hands now and lets get to it!
#1 Sun Bum Face Lotion SPF 50 for $12.99 at Ulta
Yes, this is a cruelty-free product. No, that is not the main reason I recommend it. This sunscreen will not leave you greasy. I personally have combination skin and I liked the way that this product felt on me. It is very light too, so if you fear that wearing sunscreen under your makeup will make you feel and look cakey, you do not have to worry about that with this product. I recommend this mainly for those of you who may have combination to oily skin.
#2 Emme Diane Tinted Mineral Sunscreen $46 at Emme Diane
Okay, you probably want to skip to number 3 after seeing the price of this one, but if you want sunscreen you can use daily, this is it. The minerals in here are what really help protect your skin from those harmful UVA and UVB rays. I am not sure if I recommend wearing it under your makeup like the Sun Bum one, but this one is great for anyone who still wants to protect their skin, even if they are having a no makeup day.
#3 Juice Beauty’s SPF 30 Sport Sunscreen $16 at Juice Beauty
This is a very new product to me, but I have been impressed. I normally use this one right before I go running. I run around the evening time when it is about 80 degrees outside. The weather in Texas is only going to get hotter though! I wish this came in a bigger size, but I recommend this for anyone with dry to combination skin.
#4 Alba Botanica Very Emollient Sunscreen $8.31 at WalMart.
I was desparate to get a sunscreen specifically for my evening running trips while shopping at Walmart with a friend of mines and we picked up this sunscreen. She is also a college student on a budget so we decided to try this one and appreciated a sunscreen spray that wasn’t scented and stayed on a long time before we felt the need to re-apply it. She and I will buy it again. I think this spray is good to have if you are planning on going to a theme park or festival all day. Sprays are always easier to apply for days like that and since this one is unscented, you will not attract any bees!
#5 Mad Hippie Advanced Skin Care $19.99 at Amazon
This sunscreen has a nice scent to it in my opinion. I liked that this one also did not make me feel greasy and that I was able to also wear this one under my makeup. This product does have beeswax in it for those of you wondering if it’s another cruelty-free and vegan product. You can also find this one at the official Mad Hippie website if you want to further look at reviews and their other products. I overall give it a thumbs up and I don’t really have any complaints about it.
The next sunscreen that I really want to try and I hear so many good things about is Coola’s Classic Face SPF30 Cucumber $32 at Ulta
I love the scent of cucumber, but if you do not, fear not! They also have this same product with the white tea scent and even an unscented option. The reason I am wanting to try the cucumber one is because I think it smells good and I also really like the cooling effect that cucumber or mint products give me.
I want to hear from you all now…what are your favorite sunscreens? Have you tried any of these listed here? Do you have a sunburn horror story you want to share? By the way, I have yet to experience being sun burned but hopefully that won’t ever happen!
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog post and stay stylish!
