ideas on summer time lotions!?

on Jun 10, 2015 @ 05:14 am

So with the sun being blazing hot lately, I realized I have NO lotions with SPF! Im looking for suggestions on a good smelling, non-greasy lotion. (Specifically for face) Thanks :)

Sunscreen for the face! on Jun 10, 2015 @ 05:31 am

I use separate sunscreens for my face and body - as I have oily skin on my face and I definitely don't need the extra grease from regular sunscreens. Most of the facial sunscreens I have used don't really have a scent to them - but I will keep my eyes and ears open for ones that do! My top two favourite sunscreens are:

1. Lancome Bienfait UV SPF 50 (CAD $36 @ Sephora )
2. Clean Face Oil-Free Sun Cream SPF35 PA from The Face Shop (it doesn't list the price on the site, but I'm pretty sure it retails for less than CAD $10).

Both of these sunscreens are 50 mL, and are lightweight and absorb quickly into the skin, without leaving any greasy residue. They both work well under make-up. If you can, I think it's worth splurging on the Lancome sunscreen - the SPF is higher, so you'll be better protected from those death rays! However, if you want a great sunscreen for an even better price, I highly recommend you go with the Face Shop one!

Hawaiian Tropic has a new product meant just for your face! It has SPF 30 I believe. I haven't tried it yet, but could see it being a decent face lotion/sunscreen!

I really always have used #VaselineIntensiveCare it is great for dry skin. But for a summer protection from the sun I was picked to try and review #Coppertone® Sunscreen Lotion Sensitive Skin™ SPF 50: when I try it I might be switching I will let you know what I think. Have a Great Day shiannemarley !!!


Aveeno! :) on Jun 11, 2015 @ 12:14 am

I use Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer year round. It has an SPF of 30, is oil free, and hypoallergenic (which is great because my skin is always really sensitive). Combined with my foundation, which adds an additional SPF of 17 (I use L'Oreal True Match Super-Blendable foundation), I feel very protected and my face feels great – not greasy or oily at all.

If I'm not wearing makeup, I use the same sunscreen on my body as on my face.
If I am wearing makeup, I make sure as many products as possible have a high SPF - especially primer and foundation.

I use L'Oreal Sublime Sun Mousse...I Love it...and the best thing is Dollarama is selling it for $3 right now....usually it's pretty expensive

Skin gets too oily! on Jul 07, 2015 @ 01:53 pm

What are some suggestions for summer skin that won't get too oily with moisturizer my skin is a mess with the heat and trying to apply products help please =]

Aveeno or BB Cream with SPF on Jul 07, 2015 @ 03:20 pm

I find that I like Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer which has an SPF of 30. It doesn't clog up my pores. I also use a lot of makeup products that have an SPF - there are BB creams that have SPFs in various brands (MAC is mine, and I also use Bare Minerals Matte powder with SPF).
