Gone are my days of baking in the sun without a care for SPF – I’ve realized over the last couple years how important it is to wear SPF. I don’t always need it because my skin loves the sun, but the sun can do a lot of damage to your skin – especially your face.
There are so many different products to repair the damage that the sun does, so why not try and stop sun damage before it happens?
For my trip to Las Vegas I picked up L’Oreal’s Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection to see how it worked. The fact that also acts as a tinted BB cream was an added bonus! I purchased it for $13.00 at Target.
First of all, I love that it is tinted because I pretty much never go makeup free. When I do, I’m sure not in Las Vegas! I really needed something to even my skin tone for a fun day pool bar hopping, and this was perfect. It wasn’t greasy or oily at all which was great. It had a very thin consistency – almost runny which I was surprised about. I suppose since it was sunscreen I expected it to be heavier. It was very light!
I only applied the lotion once, and left it for the rest of the day while I stayed in the sun for about 6 hours.
I did not burn at all. My skin wasn’t irritated from the formula, plus there were no signs of sunburn or redness. It was pretty amazing that I didn’t burn at all with only one application. Usually I am a little red faced after a day in the sun, but with this I wasn’t red at all.
The product is also water resistant, and also moisturized my skin quite a bit. There is no need to put on your regular day cream first – this product is a great stand-alone moisturizer.
I will be using this product all summer – I loved it!
