If there is one product that should be used each and every day, especially in the summer, it is sunscreen. It is a must. It is one of those products that I am most picky about too. I hate the way that most sunscreen feels on my skin; many feel heavy, sticky, oily, greasy and just plain gross on my skin. I can't even begin to tell you how many wasted bottles, cans and tubes of sunscreen that I have thrown away over the years. Just when I think I have found a sunscreen that "will do", I discover something new that throws me for a loop and leaves me wondering how I've lived without it for so long. What have I discovered that I can't live without? Colorescience Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen.
Colorescience Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen is no ordinary sunscreen. Sunforgettable® is a large tube with a retractable brush on one end, that is filled with mineral sunscreen (SPF 30 or SPF 50). You simply brush the sunscreen on anytime, anywhere. No fuss, no muss - no greasy or sticky or any type of residue feeling left behind at all. Nothing but a luxurious light, silky powder is all I feel as I sweep it over my skin. It's not just for the face either; I sweep the Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen liberally all over my body and it takes just seconds.
Sunforgettable® is a very silky, refined powder that offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. It is rated for water resistance of 80 minutes so be sure to re-apply (which of course it super easy). I love that is odor-free and does not rub off on my summer whites or any of my clothes for that matter. It is safe for all ages and it doesn't even irritate my eyes when swimming or perspiring. It really is a dream sunscreen!
Just look at a regular run of the mill sunscreen on my hand, squeezed out of the tube and rubbed onto the skin for five seconds compared to Colorescience Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen. Which would you want to wear? Notice you can't really see the Sunforgettable® on my skin - you can't really feel it either. That's the point.
Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen comes in two strengths, SPF 30 or SPF 50 and each brush is available in 6 shades: fair, medium, tan, fair shimmer, medium shimmer, tan shimmer. I use the SPF 30 in the Tan shade to match my faux tan and it blends in very well with my coloring.
In addition to applying Sunforgettable® Mineral Sunscreen every morning, I now carry one in my handbag, keep one in my beach bag and one in my car. It's easy to stock up too because Colorescience is having a "Buy Three - Get One Free" + a Free Shipping offer when you order through their website here: Colorescience.com.
