I haven’t been using chemical sunscreens for awhile and as a matter of fact, have stopped looking at products in that category. But I found a La Roche Posay pamphlet in one of the pockets of my bag and after taking a quick glance, realized that the company has introduced a new filter system called Mexoplex in their Anthelois range, which is a brand new synergistic combination of Mexoryl and Tinosorb together with Eldew, a photostablilizing oil. The new range has been introduced for awhile now but it completely miss my radar until now.
The dust has sort of settled and I’m able to return to blogging although it maybe less frequent for a beginning. Thanks everyone who left or sent me messages of concern! I’m fine; just a little tired. So for a start, let me share a short post regarding how scientists have found that there are compounds in grapes that could protect the skin against the sun and could be used in sunscreen and sun protection products.
Lookie! A new mineral sunscreen with 18% Zinc Oxide and it goes by the name of an Ounce Of Prevention from Petite Marie Organics. Cute name isn’t it? I ordered this, along with a cleansing powder and the two products arrived from Switzerland, which the formerly UK-based company is now located. Today, I’ll just review the Ounce Of Prevention Mineral Anti-Aging Sun Cream SPF 30+, a product that some of you have been raving.
Some readers have asked me if they cannot reapply their sunscreen with their makeup on, is it fine for them to rely on their makeup for sun protection. Well, the answer is yes and no; it really depends on what type of makeup they are using, the active ingredients in their products and how much they apply.
