Ok, I’m going to be upfront and let you all know that there’s no way I’m ditching my foundation this summer. No-makeup makeup is for other people, but for me, I need my skin to look perfect at all times. However…. There are definitely days when makeup is not going to be appropriate – a […]
Sunscreen for your face is the most difficult to find, am I right? I’m always looking for something that goes on matte not greasy, clear not white, light not thick, and that I can layer my foundation on top of. It’s a process, but I’m finding that there are some great options out there, and […]
Sunscreens by the Ombrelle brand are most recommended by dermatologists for one reason: they have a nice cocktail of sun-blocking ingredients so that the sunscreen stays stable and therefore effective. When you buy an Ombrelle product, you know that you are getting something that really works, and perhaps even works better than the next sunscreen […]
Here’s the thing: I used to wear Banana Boat Sunscreen all the time, mainly because it was so easy to find and I would sometimes even buy it when I was on vacation. At the time, it was heavily scented, and kind of greasy so eventually I grew tired of it and moved on. But […]
These days I’m using Biotherm Sun-Protection Ultra-Fluid Body Milk in SPF 30 and quite like it because it despite being a light and lovely milk, it is quite moisturizing! What I’m loving is that it literally makes my skin glow and I know that I’m not going to encounter any dry skin while I use […]

I know that some of you liked my little tip of using cleansing cloths on your feet, and so hot on the heels of that, here’s another unconventional use of a conventional product. Although I’m pretty good at keeping up at moisturizing and the like, sometimes I just don’t have time and I need to […]
I have been receiving many emails from readers asking me to recommend a sunscreen for their visage. Some of you may be wondering why you even need a different sunscreen for your face, and the answer is that sunscreens that are formulated especially for the face are often less greasy, stay on better, and tend […]
I’ve also tried Biotherm Sun Protection. It’s a nice lotion and more moisturizing than the Elta. I use it on the days that my skin feels a little drier and I’m not wearing much makeup.
Once again, I’ve been looking through what you’re interested in reading about and I’ve seen an overwhelming number of requests for suncare and summer-related products! I think we’re all so sick of the winter that it’s more fun to dream about the months ahead. As I was telling a friend today: “We’re in mid-February, which […]
