Sunscreen Reviews and Application Tips

There is no doubt that I love Kanebo Sensai and my latest must-have from the brand is Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair Collagenergy SPF 20 .

Meant to be used in the AM as the last step of your skincare regimen and before makeup, the Wrinkle Repair Collagenergy helps to awaken skin cells and promote collagen synthesis for a firmer, rejuvenated, radiant appearance.

With a long list of celebrity fans including Nicole Richie, Debra Messing, Cameron Diaz and Marcia Cross, Kate Somerville SPF 55 Serum Sunscreen utilizes a patented SPF boosting technology to provide high-level protection against UVA and UVB rays.

Main ingredients include your typical sunscreen ingredients – Avobenzone (3%), Homosalate (10%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (2%) and Oxybenzone (6%) – along with Aloe Vera, Vitamins A, C and E to soothe and refine skin.

Claiming to be a safe alternative to harsh laser resurfacing, Origin’s newest Brighter By Nature SPF 35 Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer is packed with a chock full of exotic ingredients like Palmaria Palmata (a red seaweed), Turkey Tail Mushroom, Ascorbyl Glucoside (Vitamin C derived from Sea Algae), Japanese Basil Leaf, Peony etc. to fight existing spots, exfoliate, repair, moisturize and prevent future discoloration.

With its Avobenzone (3%), Octisalate (5%), Octocrylene (7%) along with mineral-rich Vichy Thermal Water, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Lotion SPF 30 24 Hr Fortifying Moisturizer ($26) is the best moisturizer with sunscreen ever!

The oil-free formula goes on super lightweight and has a similar texture to the Biotherm Sunfitness Gel-Cream For Face SPF 15 I loved – only better. It gets absorbed into my skin instantly and makes my skin so soft, providing a great base for makeup. I also love that the Vichy Thermal Spa Water keeps my skin hydrated ALL day and the SPF 30 is exactly what I needed. Highly recommended!
