Gotta love it when you find beauty products that 1) travel well, 2) are totally useful and 3) make you feel good when you wear them. I get all of the above with these two cuties that I picked up last week at Sephora!
I was there to buy a present for my dad for Father’s Day. He’s an avid gardener, and I want him to step up his sun protection game, so I got him a sunhat from REI and a bottle of Shiseido Sunscreen. Now that I think about it, I should’ve purchased two bottles because my mom will probably end up stealing his sunscreen, LOL!
Anywho, I’ve been wanting a touchup sunscreen to keep in my purse, something portable and small that won’t leak, so I bought a Shiseido Clear Sunscreen Stick SPF 50 ($30). It’s so easy to pop it open and slide that little stick all over my face for a touchup (in fact, I just did it right before I typed this sentence). It’s lightweight, non-greasy and has a lovely light summery citrus scent. Even Connor doesn’t mind applying it, which is a nice bonus.
If you wear minimal makeup like I’ve been doing lately, it’s so easy to use before going on a walk, or if you’re driving and want a little extra sun protection.
I love, LOVE the Supergoop Lipshade ($24). What a treat!
It’s a mineral lip sunscreen with SPF 30, and it’s LEGIT pigmented, like a full-on lipstick. I bought Lucky Penny, a rich dark rose, and have been wearing it for the past few days.
I love it because it’s smooth and doesn’t feel heavy. Also, most lip sunscreen sticks leave my lips feeling cracked and dry, but this one doesn’t! It’s actually pretty hydrating, which could possibly be because it has a good amount of rich moisturizers — avocado oil, jojoba oil, shea butter and mango seed butter, for starters.
I’m planning to get a few more colors… I’ll keep checking the Supergoop website to see if they have any sales coming up, and if they do, I’ll let ya know.
How is your Tuesday going? Tomorrow is the official first day of summer. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m already shopping for Connor’s school uniforms because I just know that I’ll blink and it’ll be the first day of school again.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
