Don’t you just hate it when your makeup is perfect and you have to smear on sunscreen? Us too. So here’s some sunscreens we’ve tried that in some cases act as a PRIMER for your base (genius) or spray on after to SET your look!
1. Pur-Lisse SFP 30 is a moisturizer and sunscreen in one. Blending anti-oxidant rich Chinese botanicals such as Blue Lotus and White Tea, with advance skin science, it soothes sensitive skin and prevent skin aging. Apply and then wait for it to soak in before applying makeup.
2.Kate Somerville’s brand-new Dual Action Primer acts as a broad spectrum sunscreen and primer, creating a flawless canvas for your makeup while still protecting you for the sun.
It’s lightweight, non-greasy, infused with anti-aging skincare ingredients, such as wrinkle-reducing Peptides and Natural Extracts, to keep your complexion fresh, youthful and glowing. The best part? The ‘Light Diffusing Technology’ which helps blur imperfections, and creates a flattering soft-focus effect.
3. Earlier this summer, COOLA came out with an organic SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray, a weightless, matte finish mist that protects the sensitive skin of your face while keeping your makeup looking fresh all day. This highly advanced formula includes both cucumber and Aloe Vera Extracts to help soothe and refresh skin; and Hyaluronic Acid, known to bind moisture and help soften, tone and rehydrate skin. We give it a A+.
4. But even if best intentions fail and you end of with too much sun, here’s your life-saver – the Susan Ciminelli Hydrating Gel Mask made of a special blend of ingredients including aloe vera, azulene and copper, so that skin that has been over exposed to the elements will be flooded with moisture and nutrients. This hydrating gel is an anti-oxidant rich beauty potion that will balance and hydrate skin that has had to much sun, or maybe celebrated a little too hard. (For really trashed skin, you can sleep in it overnight.)
And remember to spray on her Seawater Mist, which is made of slightly desalinated, purified seawater that acts as a natural astringent and sanitizer (we even use it for instant relief for sunburn and insect bites!) Voila! Your glowing complexion is back.
