SPF and sunscreen is a MUST for me…every…single…day. Rain or shine, there is some type of sunscreen on my face and neck. However, with my need for sunscreen comes the issue of finding the perfect type that works for my skin. I’m sure some of you can sympathize with me… Some are too oily, some break me out, and some are too thick. It also has to work nicely with whatever foundation I decide to wear that day. With all this in mind, I deem myself a tad picky when it comes to sunscreen.
HOWEVER, the sun gods have answered my prayers! L’Oreal came out with their Silky Sheer Face Lotion recently and while at Ulta, I literally just picked it up and bought it without thinking. I didn’t even look at the box. I just saw that the SPF was 30, and at $9.99 is was a reasonable price. (I think they were also having a deal that particular week. I think L’Oreal skincare was BOGO 1/2 off.)
So now that I’ve started by saying that, let’s look at the BREAKDOWN:
- “Broad spectrum sunscreen protection infused with skin-improving care. Helps protect skin with patented UVA/UVB filter system plus antioxidants Vitamin E and White Grapeseed.”
- Love the fact that there is UVA/UVB protection. As for the skin-improving care, I haven’t noticed anything yet. But honestly, I just need protection from my sunscreen. I expect other products that are specifically made to improve my skin to make a visible difference.
- “Shake well to activate this virtually weightless lotion. Absorbs quickly and layers invisibly under makeup leaving a silky soft, matte finish on the skin.”
- This literally does everything it says it will. ‘Nuff said.
