If you’ve ever even glanced at my IG, you probably guessed that I’m a product hoarder…I mean collector. One of the products I collect is sunscreens. I love what sunscreen does to protect my skin, but haven't found the perfect one yet. Since it’s #sunscreenweek, I thought I’d share what is in my rotation right now (pic 1) as well as my stash (pic 2), so you can help me decide what to add in next. Let me know in the comments which you’d want a review of!
Here are my brief thoughts about each of the sunscreens I’m currently using. 🌞
#mommyUV Mild Gel SPF 33 PA+++: dries down rather quickly, no alcohol, doesn’t dry out my skin too much, but dries shiny, not matte. Need to use with makeup or you look silly. 🌞
#paparecipe Bombee Soft Sun Stick SPF 50 PA+++: I LOVE this stick. It’s moisturizing, smells like honey, and glides on clear. It absorbs like a dream and works well under makeup. So, of course, I can’t find it anywhere. I think @paparecipe reformulated it to PA++++, and it's under new packaging now? Saw their post on IG this morning. Hopefully I can find it online soon. 🌞
#apieuPure Block Natural Daily Sun Stick SPF 50 PA+++: Rolls on clear, nice scent, not sticky, takes a bit to dry. Because it’s a stick, I always put lots on in fear I’m not using enough. This is my go-to for taking to the gym or for a very quick sunscreen application. Is fine under makeup.
#apieuPure Block Mild Sun Eye Stick SPF 50 PA+++: Perfect for the eye area, this glides on. It’s white, so it’s adds a nice bit of lightening of my under eye circles. I have to be careful to let it absorb or it will crease my under-eye makeup. 🌞
#amorepacificResort Collection Sun Cushion SPF 30: I like this cushion for touchups throughout the day. It goes on white, but absorbs immediately and you can’t see it, although it does make you slightly paler. It works well to apply over makeup. Pricey, but as with most things Amore Pacific, worth it. 🌞
#shiseidoSenka Aging Care SPF 50 PA++++: dries down quickly, has alcohol but isn’t very drying. Dries shiny, so I use under makeup.
