Current Foundation Situation

Layering foundation and sunscreen in the middle of the summer can be a real pain, but I’ve figured it out, and I’ll admit that it’s against the advice of dermatologists and sunscreen makers.  I mix the Garnier Ombrelle sunscreen with L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation.  The Foundation colour I use is 109, so it’s a […]

AlumierMD Sunscreen

On the radio this morning, a listener called in and said that if you want it to feel like summer, you should just wear sunscreen that smells like that beachy coconut scent so that you feel like it’s hot enough for it, even though it’s not. This listener obviously isn’t a regular sunscreen wearer, because […]
