What kind of sunscreen are you using? How it is affecting your skin? We at Style Cabana, care about healthy skin and have been getting numerous questions about sun block and what the best kind is for your face. Well, we tested out a few of the most popular selling brands and have our top three results.
Our #1 Choice:
PURPOSE- Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion with SPF 15.
Its hypoallergenic, water based, and it will not clog your pores (for real!). Whether you are fighting acne, have sensitive, or mature skin, PURPOSE offers a moisturizer with an added SPF of 15 that filters both UVA and UVB rays. We liked this product so much because it is good for your skin, light weight, hydrating, non greasy, absorbs well and will not create buildup. This award winning facial lotion is perfect for all skin conditions and gives adequate protection from the sun. It is also recommended by dermatologists and be can purchased at major shopping centers.
Our #2 Choice:
Clinique City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector SPF 25.
Almost a tie for first place, Clinique’s Face Protector is a customer favorite and continues to gain rave reviews. We liked it because of the oil-free formulation, and that fact that you can apply this under your foundation. It’s nice to have products that can be applied separately, especially if you have demanding skin. The formulation is a bit think, so we find that if you are freshly sun kissed, not much makeup is needed because of the extra protection, it can also be used as a makeup primer.
Our # 3 Choice:
Peter Thomas Roth Uber-Dry Sunscreen SPF 30.
Found many times to be a great lotion for oily skin. Added bonus? The SPF 30. Its “uber-dry” qualities yield a second skin texture and proves to be one of the best sunscreens for oily or combination skin. It contains essential vitamins that to fight free radical damage and also fragrance and PABA-free, which is a huge plus when looking for a product that controls oil and safe for those with allergies. Peter Thomas Roth Uber-Dry Sunscreen also made our skin very soft and blended very nicely.
