Hello, Summer in the Bay Area is often mild and cool, that is why I love this time of the year because of the Indian Summer weather. We have had several mini heatwaves since Fall has officially started. I love the hot weather, but I want to protect my skin at the same time from aging and cancer. These are some products that I think would help in prevention of both. Let's check out my current must haves for Indian Summer weather.
Jurlique Sun Lotion SPF 30+ - After finishing the Sofina Beaute Sunscreen SPF 50 that I purchased in Hong Kong, I was not able to repurchase it from the US because I could not find the exact same product online. I wanted to try something new and decided to go with a brand that is more accessible to me. Jurlique Sun Lotion SPF 30+ is a chemical and physical sunscreen in one. It is wonderful in so may different ways. First, it does not smell like a sunscreen, it smells like lavender. Lavender oil is one of its ingredients. Second, it is lightweight and goes on clear on the skin, so it will not leave a white cast. Lastly, it is super hydrating for my dry skin and yet it does not break me out. I usually wear this sun lotion over a moisturizer or serum and then put makeup on top of it. The full listing of the ingredients can be found on Jurlique's website. It is available in a frosted glass bottle in 30ml or 100 ml at Jurlique and Sephora.
Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Sunscreen SPF 30 Body Cream - If you are not familiar with Lavanila Laboratories, the healthy fragrance was their first of many breakthrough products. If you love vanilla notes in fragrances, you should try theirs. I absolutely love their fragrances and will probably review them at some point in time. Back to Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Sunscreen SPF 30 Body Cream, it is a 100% natural mineral sunscreen for the body. It has a creamy consistency that is easily spreadable on the skin as compared to some other mineral sunscreens that I have tried in the past. It will leave a white cast on the skin, but this is common with most mineral sunscreens. It comes in a 4 oz tube and it is available at Sephora.
Lavanila The Healthy Lip Screen SPF30 - Don't forget sunscreen on your lips! I talked about Lavanila The Healthy Lip Screen SPF30 in this post. For sanitary reasons, my only wish is that it would come in a lip balm stick instead of a tin container, I am not a big fan of dipping my fingers into lip balms. Other than this, I think it is a great product.
Thanks for reading! Until next post......
