At this point, it’s probably obvious that I am a skincare junkie. I used to be obsessed with makeup, but now I’m like meh, let’s chat about our skin + how we can make it look + feel ah-mazing!
While I’m constantly trying + incorporating new products into my routine, there is a staple that I just cannot go a day without. It’s crucial + yet, not enough of us are using it regularly! Can you guess what it is?
A GOOD FACIAL SUNSCREEN PEOPLE!
Okay, I admit I’m passionate about this subject, but only because I’m looking out for everyone’s best interest here! We often remember to pack our sunscreen whenever we hit the beach / pool in the summer, but what about the rest of the year? Even when it’s cloudy, you’re still getting about 80% of the sun’s UV rays. You may not feel like you need that SPF, but if you want to protect your skin, this is the most important step!
It took me way too long and way too many sunburns to realize this, so trust me, I am no sun care saint! Even when I started implementing sunscreen for my body on a regular basis, I neglected to think about my own freaking FACE. Arguably the part of me that is most exposed to the sun! Looking back, I know now why I avoided facial sunscreens — they’re greasy, thick, pile up under makeup and give me a *super cute* white cast. Thank you, next.
I didn’t give up hope that I’d find a facial sunscreen that wouldn’t give me that Caspar the friendly ghost, is that you? vibe, and that’s what lead me to find Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35.
WHY I LOVE IT —
When I first opened my Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35, I could tell the formula was totally different than any sunscreen I’ve ever tried. No thick, gloopy texture that I’d be hesitant to work into my face, but a lightweight, primer-like feel that glided on effortlessly. I could barely feel it? This was new, and I was not mad about it.
It goes on nearly translucent, and I was pretty impressed to say the least. But the real kicker is how it looks UNDER makeup. I’ll admit I was nervous the first time I patted my makeup over top of the sunscreen. I had recently tried another sunscreen that looked great alone, but as soon as I applied any makeup it was game over. The makeup started piling up in balls on my face like my favorite leggings when I accidentally threw them in the dryer. TRAGIC!!
Thankfully I’ve never had that situation with Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35. It looks bomb under makeup, and I feel like my makeup actually lasts even longer, since it provides the perfect base. I actually wore this everyday when I went to the desert in April (hello long, hot and sunny days at the festival) and I loved it. No burns here folks!
With the 18 hours of sun exposure we usually see each week (crazy to think about) I hope we all practice safe sun, especially with the hottest months coming up! Wear your SPF daily + keep your skin happy and healthy!! Also, your skin in like 30 years will prob thank you tremendously. LEATHERY SKIN WHO?!
You babes can find my fave Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control with SPF 35 here! I’ll be rockin’ this + keeping it in my bag for Memorial Day festivities! Woo hoo!
