Why I repurchased them many many times...
I have combination-oily, sensitive skin. These are some concealers and primers that I repurchase all the time. laura mercier - Foundation Primer and MAC - Strobe Cream are primers, clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Radiant Cream Foundation SPF 24 is a correcting cream, whileKiehl's - Super Fluid Daily UV Defense SPF 50+ is a sunscreen. The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer is nice to use. It's very moisturizing and smooths out the skin for more long-lasting makeup. However, the classic shade I bought has no color when applied on the skin and does not brighten the skin complexion. If you need to brighten up your skin, you can use other shades. MAC Strobe Cream has a lotion texture and brightens your skin complexion. I usually use it by mixing it with my liquid foundation after applying sunscreen and primer. It offers better results. I usually use the Clé de Peau Beauté Correcting Cream Veil when the sun is not too strong. It has a tinted lotion texture, brightens the skin and is very moisturizing. I like to use Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense in summer or when the sun is strong. Its high SPF index offers UV protection for our skin.

Just because it’s almost winter doesn’t mean it’s ok to skip your sunscreen! For me there’s the vacation version and then the everyday version. My favorites for daily use are the Paula’s Choice On-The-Go Shielding Powder SPF 30 and Dr Jart Cicapair ™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30. The Dr Jart Cicapair ™ Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 is my go-to daily spa because it’s soothing, reduces the look of inflammation (which I’m often prone to), and helps protect skin from stress. It wears well under makeup (especially the Kosas tinted face oil) and also leaves the skin looking even and vibrant on its own (perfect for no makeup days). It has very light herbal aroma and a lightweight cream consistency that transforms from green-to-beige upon application to correct any redness. I also love that it comes in both a 1.7 oz size for $52.00 as well as a 0.5 oz size for $18.00. For touchups my fave is the Paula’s Choice On-The-Go Shielding Powder SPF 30. I had never used an spf powder before this and I will never be without one again! This weightless, brush-on loose powder lets you touch up and add to your sun protection anytime, anywhere—no need to wash off your makeup and start all over. It tones down shine plus contains antioxidants to boost environmental defenses. Skin looks fresh and healthy, never dull or dry. Plus, it delivers skin-replenishing ceramides, olive fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins to fortify skin. At $29.00 for .09oz this is the most affordable powder spf I’ve come across (although the packaging can be a little wonky, hence the four stars) and a little goes a long way so it’s one that I highly recommend!

Elta MD UV Clear Tinted SPF 46 Dupe!!😱😱
I’ve been searching for a lightweight, non-comedogenic tinted moisturizer and I saw this CG version at the store for $8 and I decided to try it! After using it for the first time I realized the look and texture of the CG product is very similar to my all-time favorite elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 sunscreen and is much less expensive! Here are my thoughts on the COVERGIRL - Smoothers Tinted Moisturizer BB Cream SPF 21 : ✅Pros: -Very lightweight coverage (not cakey) -Hydrating -SPF w/ zinc oxide -Evens skin tone -A little bit goes a long way -Non-comedogenic (I personally haven’t noticed my pores being clogged👍) -Different shades to match skin tone (I use 805 Fair-Light) while Elta MD only has one overall tinted shade ❌ Cons: -Minimal tint so it really won’t cover any major redness -It’s only SPF 21 so it’s not as strong of a sunscreen -Might need multiple applications if you sweat often At the end of the day, Elta MD is still a better sunscreen and has awesome ingredients such as Niacinimide! However, if you’re a fan of Elta MD and you’re looking for a product with a similar look, feel, and contains SPF all for a fraction of the cost, this product is for you!!

Supergoop Trial Set = Some Loves, and Some Nots
Supergoop! - The Jet Set SPF Kit Overall, this kit is a good price to try some cult favorites from this brand. I would buy 2/3 products full size, but I will get into the specifics down below. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 MY FAVORITE OUT OF THIS SET! Makes my skin so unbelievably soft, matte, and of course protected! I have no choice but to purchase the full size. My skin is super sensitive, and this is perfect for summer to keep in my bag. I don’t see how anyone could give this less than 5 stars. My face gets so oily sitting in the sun, and this is the best product to keep around to prevent sun damage while not clogging my pores! Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion SPF 30 with Sunflower Extract To be completely honest, I could do without this product. I was not wowed, and there wasn’t much that I liked about it. I’m glad I got to try it, because I was intrigued by the SPF 50, but I just didn’t like this product for me. Supergoop! - Defense Refresh (Re)setting Mist SPF 40 I LOVE the concept of this product. It is such a great thing to have around if you don’t want to keep globing on sunscreen throughout the day. And I definitely think it works! I think I would repurchase, because it adds to the value of the Unseen Sunscreen, making sure I don’t waste any product! If you’re interested in getting into this brand, I think this travel kit is a good way to see what works for you!

☀️ Some of my favourite facial SPFs ☀️ It takes some trial and error to find what works for you, and can depend on a lot of factors. These are a few that I’ve come to love, all for different reasons. . ☀️ tarte Tarteguard tinted moisturizer and mineral powder sunscreen. The tinted moisturizer is great when you want a little coverage, but I don’t like how limited the shade options are. The powder is excellent to touch up during the day especially in the T-zone, or to mattify another screen like Umbra Tinte. I always keep this powder in my purse. ☀️ drunkelephant Umbra Tinte. This is a forever favourite. It makes you so glowy and radiant. I find myself going for this one on days when I want to wear makeup (not foundation, I wear this instead). It is better suited for dry skin I would say, as it can be a tad oily. ☀️ farmacy Green Screen. This one is now called Green Defense and is in recyclable packaging. This is the one I reach for most days when I’m running out the door and not wearing makeup. It pairs really well with D-Bronzi for an added glow. ☀️ murad City Skin Age Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 PA++++. This one is also an excellent everyday option. It is such a thin consistency for a mineral screen, and doesn’t leave any heaviness or greasiness at all. It wears well alone and underneath foundation. It sinks in right away, and has a slight peach tint with no white cast. The only drawback is that it’s very expensive! I’m almost out and would definitely repurchase (when the budget allows )

Essential SPF season✨
LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 Summer is arriving and SPF is ESSENTIAL for good, healthy looking skin. It is crucial to protect your skin from any sun damage and to do that, you must wear SPF of at least over 50 in order to thoroughly protect the skin. —————————————— My experience I always knew that sunscreen was critical however I dreaded wearing it due to its consistency. It always left a white sheen across my face, always felt so thick and oily and just all around uncomfortable. I’ve tried numerous types of SPF’s until I found my favourite: the tinted mineral sunscreen PAF 50 by La Roche Posay. —————————————— Results This sunscreen feels so light on the skin, it sinks right in and leaves a nice glow. The tint is perfect, and will fit with any skin. It leaves the skin looking fresh and smooth as ever. Ever since I found this SPF, I enjoy wearing sunscreen and wear it every single day without feeling uncomfortable! —————————————— Recommend 100% As a result, I would definitely recommend this product if you’re looking for a good sunscreen. It works well with dry and oily skin and does not make the skin feel too heavy or oily. And lastly, the tint in this SPF is a perfect touch for a light summertime glow. Always remember to apply SPF as the last step of your skin routine for it to be the most effective.
