Powder Sunscreens, Full Spectrum Protection That Won’t Ruin Your Makeup

Regular application and reapplication of sunscreen should be an essential part of any beauty routine, but it can also be problematic when wearing makeup. That sunscreen that you applied this morning needs to be reapplied part way through the day, yet you don’t want to ruin your full face of makeup. What to do? The

Happy Fourth of July! Plus, Wear Your Sunscreen!

Happy Fourth of July all! While out and about this weekend, don’t forget your sunscreen!

L’Oreal Revitalift UV Cream with Mexoryl, SPF 15

I was quite happy to see the new L’Oreal sunscreen, L’Oreal Dermo-Expertise Revitalift UV, Daily Moisturizing Cream with Sunscreen, because I have been waiting for a sunscreen with Mexoryl to become easily available at the drugstores. With that said, I do have a little quibble with L’Oreal’s advertising. They have been portraying the sunscreen as
