As someone with acne-prone skin and a daughter that battled Eczema, I am a stickler for a good sunscreen. Up until I started having kids, and started into my thirties, I didn’t really pay too much attention to sunscreen. Sure, I used it, but I could really buy basically anything and not have to worry too much about the repercussions. Then I started having kids and my skin started freaking out on me. I battled pregnancy face (melasma, breakouts, you name it) and had a daughter that had pretty bad eczema that we could not get rid of! I became a little bit obsessed with finding great sunscreen that not only protects our skin but also that wouldn’t break me out, irritate my girls’ skin or need to be applied 47 times a day. Here are my findings.
My #1 sunscreen find of this summer. I LOVE this stuff and use it on our entire family.
I don’t love the glow stick because I am typically wearing cc cream to the beach but this Sunscreen Oil is great for using on your body, the Everyday sunscreen is awesome to have on hand for use on the whole family and the Unseen Sunscreen is what I use on my face when I’m going to be in the sun or the water.
All three of these are great options for use on your skin before your makeup! The Paula’s choice is a great primer, the Elta MD is something you can wear every day with or without makeup on top and the Supergoop! is GREAT for being out in the sun!
These lip products were gifted to me by Sun Bum and we have used them all summer. I love the tinted ones to bring some color to my lips while protecting them from the sun!
This is my holy grail of summer skin. I use the Unseen Sunscreen first, let it sit in and then follow with the CC Cream. I was using this COOLA setting spray at the time of this post but have since fallen in love with this one by Supergoop!. I actually used the Supergoop! product when they first launched and didn’t love it because the sprayer would stick and the mist wasn’t fine enough. They have since improved all of that and it is great!~
Both of these items are great to have on hand when you are wearing makeup! I always, ALWAYS, take one to football games! You just brush the powder on your face to freshen up and protect your skin. I think I like the Colorscience better but they are honestly both fantastic.
THIS. STUFF. IS. AMAZING. Supergoop! honestly hit it out of the park with their Sunnyscreen line! It has protected my girls’
