Makeup Monday x Sunscreen

I’m going to start off this post on an honest note: I’m the worst about wearing sunscreen! I hate the way it feels, and I hate the way most of them smell. Every dermatologist out there is tsk tsking me…. Ugh. Fortunately for classic sunscreen haters like me, there are so many new products out there that don’t feel like a traditional sunscreen, yet have all the benefits and protection one needs on a day to day basis. I love that you don’t have to think about adding these as another step in your routine, but rather are products you’d mostly use anyways!

1: Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact SPF 50+

I recognize that this only comes in four shades- that part kind sucks. The product is amazing and super blendable, so they are able to only offer the four versatile shades! I love that it’s moisturizing and yet not oil inducing. It’s the light feeling coverage and high SPF you want and need for the summer.

2: Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 40

Talk about easy peasy SPF! I love this click up and brush on mineral sunscreen formula. It doesn’t leave me feeling icky and sticky and it’s perfect staying shine free all day.

3: Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection SPF 50+

This sunscreen is perfect for face and body, children and adults! It’s great for sensitive skin, and has a dry finish that isn’t oily and icky. Perfect for all over protection on beach days!

4: Australian Gold Continous Spray SPF 30

This is my favourite all over sunscreen! Have you ever smelled an Australian Gold product? It’s like a tropical beach! Absolutely amazing.

5: Dior Addict Lip Glow SPF 10

This gives you the perfect addition of slight colour to your lips! It’s smooth, creamy, and moisturizing; the perfect lippie for a summer day.

6: Supergoop Day to Day Set

This Supergoop set contains body, face, lip, and hand sunscreen each formulated with SPF to keep every inch of you protected from the harmful rays of the sun.

I LOVE the sun, and honestly can’t get enough of it during the warm summer days. I’m trying to be smarter the older I get, and the more I learn about sun damage. You’ll still find me soaking it up, but I’ll be wearing all of these to keep the aging effects at bay!

      It’s just not as fun! I’d much rather be purchasing other things. I’m starting to realize the importance though! Hugs, Kait

    excellent suggestions..I am so worried that sunscreen will make me break-out-but these products look legit!

    Hi Kait Elizabeth,
    Thanks for this great roundup of sunscreens… I’ve been using the Shiseido one for years and I love it! It’s so smooth and goes on so nicely under makeup. I’m a big fan, but I’m interested in some of your other recommendations too!

    Love, Mary

    I use to hate sunscreen too until I hit my mid thirties and saw the damage. Lol. I love Peter Thomas Roth. Everything that they make is awesome. I just stumbled upon a foundation that has SPF and is waterproof. I’m in love. Can’t wait to use it in the summer!!

    I’m trying to get better at wearing sunscreen, but honestly, I HATE layering my foundation over it. I feel like my makeup never lasts when I apply a sunscreen after my moisturizer. Do you have the same problem? Obviously poolside it doesn’t matter, but I’ve heard you should wear it everyday even if you’re going to be indoors.

      I know exactly what you mean. The best thing to do is make sure the sunscreen is built into the products you’re using anyway: i.e. your foundation, primer, or powder. Hugs, Kait

    I also hate the way sunscreen feels! I feel so greasy! And when I’m at the beach in the sand it just makes the sand feel all gross! I definitely need to give some of these a try.

      Exactly! It’s just not pleasant at all, fortunately these products avoid those pitfalls. Thanks for dropping by love! Hugs, Kait

    You and me, both! I’m not a sunscreen fan, but know that I need it! I desperately need to invest in some nice quality makeup with SPF in it!

    Ooh I always here what sunscreens people are loving! If you’re looking to test more I have been using and loving Neogen’s sunscreen via Sokoglam! I’m going to need to test the Shiseido one to compare!

    I like to use a tinted moisturizer or foundation with SPF because I agree – I hate to wear it! It clogs up my pores and makes my face feel icky if it’s not a day at the beach or something.

    • Kait Elizabeth
      May 9, 2016 / 8:33 pm

      Right? I’m so glad it’s built into so many products these days. Hugs, Kait

  24. May 9, 2016 / 10:48 am

    I used to be awful about wearing sunscreen and then I was SICK of getting sunburned. Now I use basically the entire bottle (no exaggerations) to be safe, but I haven’t found a good lip one yet. Definitely want to try that lip one #5, color & protection- win. win!

    I think I’m the queen of sunscreen, haahha. But I have to be because I am so fair and I live in Florida. I’ve always really wanted to try the Peter Thomas Roth Mineral sunscreen. And now I want to try that Dior Addict! Right now I am using a sunscreen that I forget the name of…I’ll have to DM the name of it. I don’t find it too greasy!
