We are officially in summer mode! I recently survived a beach vacation with kids (that post coming soon). So much fun in the SUN! With all that sun we needed some amazing sun protection. I'm very sensitive to the sun and don't tolerate the heat very well. My July Favs post is ALL ABOUT SUNSCREEN!
JULY FAVS - SUNSCREEN EDITION
Sun Bum Mineral Tinted Face Sunscreen SPF 30. Mineral sunscreen is all the rage right now, so this trip I decided to try it out. I’m a super fair-skinned redhead and just thinking about the sun will give me a sunburn. I'm not even kidding. I seriously haven’t found ANYTHING that actually work...until now. This face lotion is lightly tinted which is awesome and goes on so smooth. I actually used it as a primer under my foundation.
Sun Bum Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50. Another mineral sunscreen for the win! I was not burned wherever I applied this. The cream is a little thick and does take time to rub in, but didn’t leave a white cast. The white cast is a common downfall of mineral sunscreens. Think mid-90's lifeguard. I only reapplied once and that was all I needed.
Sun Bum Sunscreen Lip Balm. I’ve never used a sunscreen lip balm before, but decided to go all in. Super moisturizing!
Pacifica After Sun Spray. Not only does this smell like a beautiful tropical island, but it also soothed my skin that did get burned. I was so concerned about getting the kids protected that I neglected to put any sunblock on my back. Mistakes were made. This spray really helped cool the burn and hydrate my skin.
Aveeno Baby Mineral Sunscreen . I used this for the kids. It worked great at keeping their young skin protected. Like many complaints about mineral sunblock, it was very thick and very hard to rub in. My kids were troopers and stood still until the white cast was gone.
