Hot and sticky days are the worst, especially when wearing makeup on the train with no air conditioning! Not a good way to start your morning let me tell you. In comes my melt proof combination which has been working really well for me.
Supergoopdefense refresh setting mist with rosemary spf 50 is a three in one product which sets makeup, helps control oil/shine and protects your skin from harmful UV Rays. I love the idea behind this product because there are times when I forget to apply sunscreen underneath my makeup (check out my previous sun care post HERE) or better yet just need some extra protection throughout the day. A quick spritz of this setting mist refreshes your look while giving you protection from the sun, all without disrupting your makeup. Totally amazing in my opinion. The scent is a bit minty in addition to the Rosemary and I don’t mind it one bit!
Murad invisiblur perfecting shield spf 30. This too is another three in one product which is said to treat, blur and protect the skin. The anti aging corrective treatment is infused with mushroom peptides which diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It primes the skin with its soft focus complex which smooths and blurs, improving tone and texture of skin. Lastly it provides sun protection with invisible technology. This product has such a smooth texture and does not feel sticky once applied onto the face. Air brushed skin here I come!
I first apply the Murad shield as a primer underneath my CC cream or foundation, I then continue to apply my makeup (concealer, bronzer etc) and lastly I set everything with the Supergoop setting mist.
The Supergoop setting mist costs $12 for the 1 oz (the one pictured above) and $28 for the 3.4 oz. Now the Murad is a tad on the pricier side, it retails at Sephora for $65 1 oz. I got my deluxe sample one as a 100 point perk a few months ago.
Hope this serves as some help for anyone needing some sweat proof tips.
Ahhhh summer, it always feels like a long time coming especially in places where there are such harsh winters. It’s so interesting to see how when the sun is out everyone’s mood instantly lights up, goes to show we all need some vitamin D in our lives. Although sun exposure brings out the bright side in all of us we need to make sure we protect the skin we’re in, after all it is the only one we’ve got.
Sunscreen/Sunblock is an essential tool in blocking out harmful rays that can cause major skin damage, such as discoloration, sun spots and skin cancer. Most people think sunscreen/sunblock should only be applied when going to the beach or on a hot summer day but the suns rays can also penetrate through clouds causing exposed skin to burn. Now the difference between the two is that Sunblock actually blocks out the suns rays due to the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Sunscreen absorbs the UV radiation and reduces the amount that reaches your skin, making it so that you can still tan whilst using sunscreen.
I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite sunscreens. I recently picked up the Dr. Dennis Grossdark spot sun defense. It has an SPF of 50 and has been formulated with vitamins C & E which also help even out skin tone. What I love about this is the consistency of it, it has just the right amount of thickness and my skin soaks it right up. Another selling point for me was the ability to reduce the appearance of dark spots. I am one of those people that is constantly picking at my face, which then leaves me with dark spots. Here’s a closer look at it. I bought mine at sephora, you can find yours Here
These are some other sunscreens I have tried and thoroughly love.
