I know a number of you are familiar with Badger sunscreens but I wonder how many of you are using this Badger Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF34. Well, the reason why I purchased this product was because it was on offer at US$4 at iHerb.com and it so happened that I wanted a water resistant mineral sunscreen for swimming and outdoor sports. However, given that I don’t really head outdoors that much, I started using this on my neck and arms daily.
Alrighty, here are questions I get pretty often: can I use my BB cream as a sunscreen since it has SPF? Do I need to use a sunscreen with my BB cream? If you think my name is Viva, then yeah, you might have posed those questions to me or maybe you’re a BB cream user and you’re thinking about this now. So let me attempt to answer the questions and maybe what I’m about to unveil will help you decide.
I bought a tube of the Badger Broad Spectrum SPF34 Sunscreen recently from iHerb because it was going for a song at US$4. I haven’t started using the product and so I’m not ready to review the product yet. But anyway, the product is not exactly new to me but the packaging is. Badger has redesigned their product label to meet new FDA guidelines for sunscreen and I’m really liking how it looks. In fact, I think all sunscreens should be labeled as clearly as this one to help consumers pick the right product.
I was introduced to the Enavose Invisible Sunbrella UV Mist SPF45 right after I wrote about not reapplying my sunscreen. A mist for a sunscreen? Are you kidding me? What level of protection is it going to offer me realistically? So I dug a little more and realized that this product is meant to offer enhanced sunscreen protection. Now, that got my interest because I think this might help those who are wondering how they’re ever going to reapply sunscreen over their makeup.
I get queried on this a lot – how much sunscreen do I apply on my face daily and do I reapply? Okay, the rule of thumb for sunscreen dosage for the face is 1/4 to 1/3 of a teaspoon but you know what, I don’t really stick to this rule for daily wear. I actually use lesser than 1/4 teaspoon and I don’t reapply. Yeah, I know that’s going to shock some of you but if you’re using the Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen SPF30 like I am, you know it is quite a challenge to apply more.
