Tips to share: 3 tips to get more from your sunscreen

sunscreen tips Tips to share: 3 tips to get more from your sunscreen

I am so pleased that my new order of the Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen SPF30 arrived within a week of my order! I haven’t kept a record but this could possibly be my 8th or 9th bottle. For those who don’t know, this is my daily sunscreen and today, I thought I’ll share with you, three tips I use to get more from this product. When I mean daily sunscreen, it’s really for casual sun protection and not for intense, prolonged sun exposure. Perhaps I can come up with something like “3 INTENSE tips to get more from your outdoor sunscreen” the next round. LOL.

So this was the other sunscreen I got from iHerb—Isvara Organics Coconut Sunscreen with SPF30. I’m not familiar with this brand but the idea of slathering coconut oil with zinc oxide appealed to me. It’s not expensive at US$12+ and I thought I can alternate this with the DeVita Solar Body Block SPF30+ for my arms. Yes, this product can be used on my face too but nah, I bought it purely as a sunscreen for my body.

DeVita Solar Body Block SPF30+ for body or face?

I was really pleased to find this big tube of Devita Solar Body Block SPF30+ at iHerb. This is far more moisturizing than the Devita Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF30+ that I reviewed in May 2011. In terms of color and texture, both sunscreens are pretty close but this Body Block doesn’t dry out my skin at all. I’m not surprised to learn that some people are even using this on their face.

I just have to begin my first review of the year with a product from my favorite category—sunscreens! And it’s none other than the Badger Balm Damascus Rose Antioxidant Face Sunscreen SPF 16. Some of you had recommended me to try this and so I ordered it from iHerb recently and have used it for about three weeks now. First of all, let me say that this is very different from the Badger Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF34 I’d reviewed awhile ago.
