The Best and Worse Sunscreens

Happy Sunday, family!!

Ah yessss….just yesterday I took a nap on the grass. There was an Earth Day celebration in downtown Orlando and the weather was absolutely beautiful. I ended up knocking out by the lake. I didn’t anticipate falling asleep with UV rays banging on my skin but my skin was protected! I’ll do a review on my favorite sunscreen later but for right now check out this Total Beauty article listing the best and worse in sunscreens.

The Best and Worst Sunscreens

See which products will prevent your skin from looking lobster-like all summer long

Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is a must for all of us. And according to Heidi Waldorf, M.D. of Waldorf Dermatology & Laser Associates in Nanuet, NY, we need “an SPF of at least a 15 daily.” No one wants to spend all summer slathering on sunblock, but with these reader favorites maybe it wont seem like such a chore.

No. 14: Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel, $45 average member rating: 6*

Why: Readers complain that it “is too orange” and “the brush bristles break off and shed…”

No. 3: Philosophy A Pigment Of Your Imagination SPF 18, $30 average member rating: 5.5*

Why: Readers didn’t like the “thick and sticky” formula and hue, which “turns my skin yellowish and made me look like I was sick…”

The Best: No. 14: Dermalogica Super Sensitive Face Block SPF 30, $40.50 average member rating: 9.2*

Why: Readers like that it is SPF 30 and that it is “not greasy, doesn’t clog pores or cause breakouts.”

    My fave is Estee Lauder SunCare. I’ve tried Aveeno, Neutrogena and other drugstore brands, but I gladly pay $28 a pop for the Estee Lauder. It’s very light on the face and doesn’t make my eyes burn when I sweat.

    ’till next time…

    My fav is actually Nuetrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock. It’s really lightweight and blends in perfectly. Oh and I use SPF 70 or 55. I play no games when it comes to sunblock. 😉
