My mom always taught me to invest in great make-up (if I choose to wear it) and skin products. She told me to (literally) put my best face forward and take care of the skin I have. I’ve never forgotten about this mother-daughter lesson and ensure I use products that contain multiple benefits to my skin.
I wear sunscreen for every season, but I am especially cautious of taking care of my skin during the spring and summer. Usually my tinted moisturizer or foundation as at least SPF 15, but last year I decided to add a sunscreen specifically targeting my face to my beauty regimen. I knew the delicate skin (especially around my eyes) needed a little extra attention so I went to Sephora (my favorite cosmetics store!). I looked at all the brands available in the skin care section, but I didn’t come across anything jumping out at me. Suddenly, after talking to a Sephora rep she showed me MD Solar Sciences Mineral Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 50. I have never heard of this brand before but this product was more than just a sunscreen. Not only did it help block harmful UV rays, but there is also a blend of antioxidants (which further helps prevent AND repair damaged skin). MD Solar Sciences created this product specifically for women with acne or rosacea prone skin. I have combination skin and the oily areas are prone to breakouts so I really loved this aspect of the product. This sunscreen doesn’t contain parabens (I never put anything on my body which contains this ingredient), and among many of the other benefits I just mentioned, I tried it out!
I LOVE this product. I can’t say enough great things about it. This sunscreen went on smooth and didn’t leave a chalky white film over my skin. This mineral creme blended right in (the Sephora rep even said this product is also used as a primer for some women- how great is that?!). I can honestly say I didn’t burn at all when using this product and my skin looked undamaged throughout summer. This little bottle also lasted me about five months- yes, five! You only need a dime sized amount (if that) and it covers your entire face. You can add a BB or CC cream or foundation on right afterwards and it won’t change the consistency of your additional products. I highly suggest you incorporate this little bottle into your summer routine!
Thanks so much for reading!
