There are sunscreens, and there are sunscreens. Like comparing apples to oranges, Hondas to Ferraris or even condos to mansions, everyone wants the bigger, the better.
In the case of SPF, the higher number does not necessarily mean better. In fact, there’s a point at which the SPF number becomes as meaningless as a pile of empty papers on the floor.
We’re excited about the Skinceuticals new Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50, which is a brand new first-to-market mattifying fluid that provides a sheer protection for all skin types (even the super sensitive).
It offers the protection of a broad spectrum of PHYSICAL filters (zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) instead of the typical CHEMICAL filters that sunscreens employ. There have also been some studies that link UVA and UVB rays to osteoporosis, so as the summer season rolls around, it pays to be religious to the point of fanatical about sunscreen.
It’s a “shake then apply” action that ensures even distribution of ingredients.
Best of all, it’s only $30. Purchase here.
