The Best Post Sun Product 🌞
Summer officially wraps in a few days but if you’re a sunny state or hitting some nice warm spots for a late vacay then you need to hear about BURT’S BEES - Aloe & Coconut Oil After-Sun Soother
The most elegant & heavy-duty sunscreen yet!
If you frequent any Asian Beauty subs you know you’ve heard of this sunscreen! TheKanebo - ALLIE Extra UV Gel Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++ is touted as a holy grail for many in the sunscreen community. But is it worth the $25-$35 dollars it retails for? PROS Water-proof! It will stay put when swimming and won’t wash off without some serious effort. It creates almost a film-like barrier that you can feel on your skin when you first put it on but disappears after a few minutes of wear and I suspect this film is what makes it so good at protecting you from the elements. Sweat-proof! I actually put on this sunscreen when hiking. It’s pretty sweat-proof though I wouldn’t be able to tell you for how long since I always reapply after 2 hours. Resistant to friction! You know the feeling when you just put on your sunscreen and now you have to take off your t-shirt or put on a hat and your sunscreen comes off when it touches your face? No more! As long as the sunscreen is dry, it won’t come off! CONS If you have deep skin of color, you should consider skipping this. I wear foundation shade MUFE Y405, for reference and the white cast is visible on me. You have to double cleanse really well in order to take off the sunscreen before bed. This sunscreen is a workhorse and not easily broken down. If you have skin that will be easily irritated by too much cleansing, or haven’t found the right cleansing products for you, consider skipping this sunscreen. When rubbing in, you must work quickly and in thin layers. Additionally you have to let the layers dry completely between applications. The friction-proof qualities of this product make it so that if you accidentally let a big glop dry it will dry thick and white and will be difficult to spread out. Make-up can be difficult to spread on top, depending on the formula. For example, my wax RCMA foundation is easy to apply on top of this. But my sticky cream blush is not and will apply streaky. 💰💰💰. At $30ish for 40g you are not getting a lot of bang for your buck. Summary If you have a deep skin tone, definitely don’t get this unless you are willing to put up with the white cast. And honestly, as excellent as it is, I would really only recommend it for outdoor activities or when you need something heavy-duty due to the steep price point.

Kanebo-ALLIE Extra UV Gel Sunscreen SPF50+ PA++++
100% clean sunscreen for Summer
Sure, the world may feel like it's upside down at the moment, but summer is still on the horizon; although the getaways may look a little different nowadays, the sun is just as scorching—even from your bedroom window so let’s talk sunscreen. Of the 1,400+ sunscreens tested by the EWG, only 5% met the safety standards and over 40% were listed as potentially contributing to skin cancer. The other scary thing is of the 16 common ingredients, only 2 have been proven safe — Zinc and titanium dioxide. Trust me, I know how confusing it can be to see buzz words from brands to make you think that you are making a safe decision. When it comes to protecting your skin you want sunscreen that will reflect the sun and not one that absorbs the sun. It’s almost impossible to find a mineral sunscreen without a white cast and one that feels super sticky. By nature, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide have a hue and a texture that’s part of their chemical properties. "Zinc and titanium are white minerals. The smaller the particle size and and the less percentage of the mineral, the less white it will look," noted holistic dermatologist Cybele Fishman, M.D., explaining why most mineral screens have a white cast to some degree. That said, I love Raw Element’s tinted option that’s far less chalky than others. Raw Elements is the best natural zinc oxide sunscreen for you if you're a highly athletic outdoor enthusiast and serious about wanting a 100% natural and clean sunscreen.

Product review- Malu daycream and sunscreen
I got this day cream (Honua - Malu Protecting Day Cream SPF 30 in my Causebox. While I’m very loyal to my usual moisturizer- Rocky Mountain Soap Co - Pomegranate Day Cream I liked that it has the sunscreen, and I thought it would be perfect for summer. I really like this day cream. It smells great, is light but hydrating, and it feels really nice going on. It is perfect for summer, but I will go back to my usual day cream when I need the added hydration in the winter. I don’t think it led to any breakouts, though my skin is on a rollercoaster right now. I do recommend it- give it a try!

Everyday love if you love to glow! 💫
JOSIE MARAN - Argan Daily Moisturizer Tinted SPF 47 Protect + Perfect This is the perfect everyday moisturizer with natural SPF! Infused with argan oil, this product claims to protect against sun damage while a universal tint adds warmth and radiance to skin. This is my go-to and if I am having a good skin day, all I need is the tint and some mascara to call it a day. The tint shade is universal so it’s perfect for all skin tones. I was worried about it being too oily for my skin but it applies nicely without it being too shiny. It’s just the perfect amount of radiance and glow. Another perk is that the formula and texture it’s very lightweight wait once you rub it in and apply onto the skin, so it’s perfect to layer under makeup. I usually buy the super size bottle which retails for $60 but a little goes a long way because it does last me a while! Which makes it so worth the price. I don’t have many holy grails but this one is for sure my #1 just because I can’t go a day without it. I like it so much. I’d recommend this product to anyone looking for some spf protection while trying to achieve a natural glowy makeup look. What is your favorite tinted moisturizer + spf?
