Winter Sunscreen Most Wanted

Skin care and the need for sunscreen doesn’t stop just because summer is over. Fall and winter skin care are just as important. Pick up these end of summer sunscreen’s to ward off burns, when you least expect them:

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Sunscreen – This Aveeno sunscreen really impressed me. I shared it with four people with different skin types and protection needs. From the pale redhead to the tanned brunette, everyone agreed that this was a great sunscreen. It applies dry and doesn’t leave any smell or residue. The best part is that we all came home without any burns at all!

La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Stick Sunscreen – This is going to be my personal go-to when winter comes. When I’m all covered up with winter gear, I will still need protection on my face. This sunscreen stick is light and feels like you are wearing nothing at all. It’s small enough to fit in my purse and with SPF 60, I know I can trust it.

MyChelle Dermaceuticals Sun Shield – For a sunscreen that’s as good to the environment, as it is for your skin this is the one for you. It’s totally unscented for those who need something like that. This one is a thicker cream and it stays damp for a bit longer. So don’t count this one out, because it’s strong.

Neutrogena Dry-Touch Sunscreen – The name and package is a bit misleading, but nevertheless, this might be my favourite sunscreen on the list. It’s not really “dry-touch” since it takes a while to truly dry. It also claims to be ultra-light, but it’s by far the lightest here. It also has that sunscreen smell that will remind you of the beach. I like this one because it feels moisturizing and rich, while also protecting my skin. I wouldn’t like it for the beach, because sand would probably stick to my skin, but it’s perfect for a day out in the sun.

Alba Botantica Sun Screen Lotion Spray

I want to start this review by saying this sunscreen works great! It’s a bit concerning to use natural sunscreen, because you want one that you can trust. I prefer a name that I already trust for my sunscreen most of the time, because you can’t mess around with things like that! This is one that you can believe in. The Sport version the sunscreen lasted for a full long bike ride in the beating sun with no burns at all!

My problem is with the spray bottle that this sunscreen comes in.

If you are going to make a spray sunscreen, make sure that it really sprays. This sunscreen shoots a thick lotion in one stream at your arm. It doesn’t spray it around at all. To get it on your arms or legs, you have to really aim carefully or you will miss them and shoot it across the room. It’s easier to just spray it in your hand and then spread it. There is also a regular style bottle, which I feel like is just as good.

The morale of the story is great sunscreen, bad spray bottle. Opt for the regular bottle and your summer will be great!
