By now, knowing you should wear sunscreen- not just while you’re in the sun but even when basking in the moon’s rays- has been told to you a million and one ways. I get it! Melanoma is scary and dangerous. On the other hand though, don’t you just HATE how sunscreen feels on your skin? I do. So much. I hate it to the point the benefits of wearing it disappear from my mind as I think of the chemical pore clogging formula that will leave me slicker than a slip and slide!
Fortunately, the world of sunscreen has come a long way from my days as running around as the Coppertone baby- sliding right out of my ever-watchful parent’s hands and glowing a shiny white color. I’m sharing four products that I feel are effective while leaving your skin non-slippery, stinky and your pores empty!
The word emollient gets me every time! According to dictionary.com, emollient means, “
This product has powerful UV protection that is perfect for daily wear under your makeup. It won’t make you break out or your boss ask who’s going to the beach cause of a strong sunscreen scent. Just make sure to put some on the back of your hand’s so they stay young forever like your un-sun damaged face! (They are always the giveaway….)
I had to throw this one in for the men. My hubby hates “fancy” sunscreen and wants the cheapest most effective products. Enter: No-Ad, they don’t do any advertising so their costs stay low which they then pass on to the customers. This is the most classic formula you can find, but it doesn’t leave behind white streaks. The scent is NOT overbearing- definitely, husband approved.
I saved my favourite for last! I have been using this product for YEARS now. If you want something with coconutty goodness that isn’t overpowering this is the sunscreen for you! The formula feels light, gives a slight bronze glow, makes you smell like a tropical goddess and keeps the evil sun rays at bay. I highly recommend any product from the Australian Gold line- you really can’t go wrong! Plus, I can use it on my face with no breakouts- LOVE.
What’s your go-to product to beat the aging power of the sun? Let me know which new ones I need to try!
