Favorite Suncreens for the Body – 2017 Edition

Pola Negri

I posted my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face. I wear sunscreen every day. Saying that, I don’t wear sunscreen on my body daily because most of the year, my body is not exposed. I mostly wear sunscreens for the body in the summer or if I travel to a warmer climate. I do try to wear sunscreen on my hands every day. So, my needs and requirements are different for a body sunscreen than a daily face sunscreen.

Unlike my Favorite Sunscreens for the Face, you won’t… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Favorite Sunscreens for the Face – 2017 Edition

Alla Nazimova

I wear sunscreen every day. I reapply it if I’m out in the sun. I’ll go out without makeup or without a bra before I go out without sunscreen.

I’ve been wearing sunscreen every day since I was 13 years old. This was a rarity for someone in my age range that grew up in the Deep Tanning Bed South.

I now realize that I have no choice and can’t live without them. I’ve tried so many and really, I don’t love too many of them. Maybe my expectations are too high?

Weekly Cheap Secret:

This is one of those products that I always have around and just don’t review because it’s just overlooked. I never used this product until I married my husband. He always raved of it. I thought, he’s a guy, what does he know? And to be rude, it’s cheap. I have normal skin. It’s usually happy. However, in the summer it gets oilier. Since I never had oily skin, I never know how to deal with it. Husband recommended that… Continue reading | 2 Comments
