Hola Love Bunnies🐰💕
It’s product review time again here on the blog ✨. Today I’ll be reviewing a skincare item that is a must have for everyone regardless of your age or gender : Sunscreen or Sunblock ☀️.
☀️I’m sure you are all aware of the dangers of exposing you skin to the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Unprotected and prolonged exposure to the sun can cause a number of skin related problems including but not limited to :
☀️Therefore protecting your skin is imperative when being in the sun. For people of color like myself it is especially important as my skin tends to go into an overproduction of melanin if I have repeated unprotected exposure to the UV rays.
☀️That being said choosing the correct sun protection for the skin can be a bit daunting given the staggering array of products and brands offered in stores. For me personally a few things are very important when choosing a sunscreen .
1- ☀️It has to be oil free and streak free. There is nothing worse than heading out in the boiling weather with your face covered in a oil slick and worse white streaks 😳!
2-☀️It should provide coverage. Since I don’t wear foundation or concealer on a daily basis, a Sunblock that does double duty (protection + coverage) is a winner in my book.
3-☀️It should have a SPF factor of between 30-50. In case you didn’t know the higher the SPF the longer time in terms of protection you get which means fewer reapplications.
☀️The one brand that satisfied all my requirements ended up being:
☀️La Rochay Posay ☀️
☀️I found it easy to apply and it provided just the right amount of light coverage which helped blur out any discolorations on my face. I’ve attached an unretouched picture below 😱 (0️⃣ filters on this picture 😳 ack!). I’ve applied the product on one side of my face so you can see the extent of the coverage.
☀️In terms of applicability the product stayed put and didn’t melt off my face even after a few hours. Granted I was indoors for the most part. 😏 So I cannot at this point comment on its performance outdoors.
☀️All in all this is one sunscreen I actually don’t mind using everyday 😍. Considering the fact that normally I hate applying sunscreen due to its greasy feel and the peculiar, artificial white sheen most of them leave behind 😳.
☀️Have you guys tried this brand ? How did you like it? Do let me know in the comments and what is your preferred brand of sun screen? Share with me here!😘
Until next time loves 💋💕!
