Coming back to my another favorite topic (after fitness) – skincare. I am not to going lecture on the importance of sunscreen today, since you must know it all, by now (if not, Read this). Today, I am sharing 4 of my personal favorite sunscreens. If you are wondering why the number ‘4’ or she could have easily added one more and titled the list as ‘my favorite top 5’.. etc.. etc.. Well then, I tried, but I just couldn’t find a fifth favorite! These are the only four sunscreens that I really, really like. What can I say..?!!
Anyways.. I have used them (in fact still using all of them) and the reviews are based on my personal experiences. Just putting them in random order.
- Clinique Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40 – It’s slightly tinted and tends to leave a white residue on skin if not properly blended. So I really blend it well and massage it in to the skin. I use this one mostly on the weekends when I plan to spend my day outdoors. Again, this is not a substitute to a foundation. Link
- Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50 – Big fan of the milky texture of this one and fact that it is lightweight and sheer when applied. At first I got a trial size at Sephora, but then I loved it so much, I decided to buy the full size. Similar to the previous one, I like to wear it when I am headed outdoors, for a long day. I could say that I love wearing sunscreens more than moisturizers.. haha!! Link
- Benefit Dream Screen SPF 45 – Personally I feel the texture of this one is very close to a primer. It’s very light weight, easily gets absorbed and leaves skin so silky smooth, it’s hard to believe! I like using it daily while going to work. Link
- La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 – This French brand does skincare like no other! Anyhow, this sunscreen was recommended to me by my dermatologist last year, when I had major skin troubles. Since then I am hooked on to it. I use it majorly in extreme summers due to the high SPF value. It’s texture is milky and leaves my skin quite moisturized. It’s creamy texture is really good for anyone with dry/dehydrated skin. Link
Now I see how all my favorite sunscreens are at least SPF 40 or higher. Ideally, one should re-apply sunscreen every two hours, but I am guilty of not doing so! But I’m getting there folks..!!! So that was all about sunscreens, do you have any favorites to add?
