Sunscreen Most Wanted

Sunscreen Most Wanted
I have very fair skin and over the years summer has become a game of what sunscreen will keep me from turning lobster red and what does absolutely nothing. At this point I’m absolutely fine with being pale all year round so I’ve put together a list of sunscreens that actually work.
Arbonne Water-Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30
Arbonne Water Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30
This is more of a traditional sunscreen lotion. It absorbs really well and has a slight orange scent. It doesn’t leave a greasy feel but like most lotions can get a little difficult to reapply on wet skin.
Neutrogena Beach Defense Kids SPF 60

Another lotion, I find that kid’s formulas sometimes work better on my super fair, sensitive skin and this is one of those times. This one definitely works, but it takes a little effort to rub it in.
Ombrelle Dry Mist SPF 60

Spray sunscreens have come a long way in that now they actually work. This Ombrelle sunscreen is what I use on a daily basis when I’m running into the car or heading out for an hour. It sprays on almost invisibly and it really does feel dry. The lack of greasiness or moisture sometimes causes me to question how much actually went on.
L’Oreal Sublime Sun Quick Dry SPF 30
L'Oreal Sublime Sun Quick Dry SPF 30 Sheer Finish Spray
This spray isn’t quite as dry as the Ombrelle one but it’s alcohol free which means it won’t dry out my skin as easily, it smells delicious and it works really well.
Coppertone Kids Mousse SPF 60
Coppertone Kids Sunscreen Mousse SPF 60
I’ve never seem a mousse sunscreen before and I had to try it. It’s the same as using mousse for your hair only it feels much drier. It absorbs so quickly, the first couple times I used it I went over the same areas a few times because I thought I had missed spots. This one takes a little more work in application but it won’t leave you greasy.

I love the way that sunscreen is changing into working better and not leaving you looking like an oil slick. Did I miss a sunscreen you love? Let us know!

Sister Sin’s Liv Jagrell Shares Her Most Wanted Makeup

SisterSinBand We’ve already been telling you what our Most Wanted products are but now we’re going to let others tell you. First up is Liv Jagrell, lead singer from Stockholm band Sister Sin. Liv tells us what her Most Wanted products to take out on tour are.

neutrogenamakeupremoverwipes 1: Make up wipes: Since I wear a lot of make up onstage and nights on tour can be very late and exhausting, I always have make up wipes with me to easily take off the make up. I would not survive without them. Whatever kind I can find – usually ends up being Neutrogena!

lumene-bbcream
2: BB cream or CC cream: Because you have limited amount of time and space on tour, this is a really good product. Both daycream and foundation in one. My fave right now is Lumene BB Bright Now.

ProffsDryShampoo
3: Dry shampoo: You never know when you will have a shower and time to wash your hair, this is a real saver. I use cheap ones like Proffs Dry Schampoo, it’s one of the best if you ask me!

KikoUltraTechMascara
4: Waterproof Mascara: [This is] to use on stage… And why?? Well if you headbang as much as me it’s kind of a cardio workout every time I’m on stage, and I don’t want to look like a panda or Alice Cooper after the show haha. I recommend an Italian brand called Kiko which have very good products for a good price.

5: Small travel kits with body lotions, I can’t live without body lotion, I really hate when my skin is dry! I prefer organic of all kind, today there a lot to chose from, which is good.\
