Makeup Wars: Favorite Sunscreen

Makeup Wars Favorite Sunscreens

With Memorial Day just past, we are now officially in the Summer season. So, in this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we are discussing our favorite sunscreens. Now, we all know that I tend to make sure that most of the products I use contain SPF, because this pale, freckled skin isn’t going to keep itself looking like this on its own, that’s for sure. Because of that, I didn’t really include any of those products, like moisturizers, but just the products that I tend to use for its sunscreen properties on their own.

Coola Sport SPF 35 Citrus Mimosa Sunscreen Spray: Scent is a HUGE part of sunscreen to me. I swear, it goes back to growing up and smelling the Coppertone Coconut Oil wafting by the pools growing up, all SPF 4 of it! And not only does this smell like yummy citrus, it is actually good for you. It “will also nourish, repair and hydrate skin with 97% certified organic ingredients like Cucumber, Algae and Strawberry Extracts; and Red Raspberry Seed Oil, a natural sunscreen and anti-inflammatory rich in Omega-3 and 6”. Ridiculous, right? And it sprays really well, too.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+: Is SPF 100+ overkill? Yes. Do we know that anything over SPF 35 is not any more effective? Yes. Does seeing the SPF so high help me mentally think that I am doing an amazing thing? Yes. And that is why I use this one. Plus, the ultra-sheer factor really does help this absorb super quick so it doesn’t feel like it is just sitting on my face. I will wear this on the days that I won’t be wearing any makeup and will be out in the sun. Roasting.

Mario Badescu Lip Wax SPF 15: I know I have told you about my love for this lip balm before. It’s my holy grail lip saver, and the SPF makes it a necessity in the summer months when I venture outside.

Dr. Denese SPF 20 Defense Day Lip Veil: Sometimes, I need to have a bit of a shine on my lips, but still protect them. That is when I will whip out my Dr. D Lip Veil – this is a high shine gloss (*that tastes good), and still protects with a SPF 20. I’m pretty sure that this is discontinued on the Dr. D site, but you can still find it around. It doesn’t take much for glossy coverage.

So, what do you use for sunscreen? Are you a spray or lotion user? Let me know below and then check out the sunscreen favorites from the other ladies:

*Partnered Post* Jergens Natural Glow and My Spring Needs

jergens spring necessities Now that the temps are *FINALLY* staying warm, it is time to make some changes to what has been my cool weather routine. That means I need to bring out the products that are going to help me out the most when it gets HOT out there.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen: Now, this can be good year round (*like to help keep the winter pasties at bay), but I’m using it to help reduce the need to wear actual makeup that is just going to melt off anyway in the heat. Plus, it has SPF20 sunscreen in it, so it helps protect my face, while giving it some color at the same time. (*In fact, if you don’t want to get out in the heat at all, but look like you did, the whole line of Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizers can keep you looking like you vacay’d at the beach in as little as 3 days.)
  • Secret Waterproof Deodorant: It’s time to bring out the big dog deodorant, that can withstand the heavy “glistening” that a gal can do in wicked hot temps, and not disappear suddenly.
  • Covergirl Lash Blast 24 Hour Mascara: In these warmer temps you need a mascara that isn’t going to run at the first drop of sweat that gets in your eye, so this long lasting formula will stay put until you decide to take it off.
  • Maybelline SuperStay 10Hr Lip Stain Gloss: I am constantly wiping my face as the days heat up and I don’t like to have to keep reapplying my lip product, so, this stain keep color on my lips that lasts throughout my day.
  • Aqualillies for tarte Amazonian clay waterproof liner in “splash”: Same thing goes for my liner as my mascara – I don’t want it disappearing at the first sign of moisture, and these liners will not budge.
