Protect with an SPF 30 from Murad, Mary Kay, Aveeno and Biotherm!

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - 50ml - $31 - with a patented antioxidant-rich formula including pomegranate extract that prevents signs of premature aging caused by environmental exposure by delivering powerful UVA/UVB protection, panthenol and sodium PCA to lock in moisture and keep skin soft and supple and micro-minerals to provide an oil-free matte finish.

I like the smell of this one, it has a slight fruitiness and don't be scared off by how white it seems to be when you put it on, it quickly absorbs and the whiteness disappears!

Available at murad.com and Sephora.
Mary Kay SPF 30 Sunscreen - 118ml - $20 - along with the UVA/UVB protection, this lightweight, oil-free sunscreen offers waterproof and sweat-resistant wear that won't block your pores and leave your skin feeling soft and moisturized.

I don't love the smell, I can't put a finger on what it reminds me of - I'm almost going to say cucumber but that's not exactly right - but it absorbs so quickly and the smell goes away when it does so I'm not going to hold that against it!

Available through your Mary Kay Beauty Consultant - if you don't have one, get yourself one at 1-866-455-5454 or online at www.marykay.ca
Aveeno Sensitive Skin Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 - 88ml - $15.99 - a gentle formula with 100% natural-sourced sunscreen ingredients to provide protection against UVA/UVB rays and moisturizing oat extract - waterproof, fragrance and oil free, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.

If you have super-sensitive skin you might want to avoid anything with fragrance as it can be irritating and this one pretty much does smell like nothing - I also find it quite moisturizing which is nice to counteract how dry your skin can get when you are out in the sun!
Biotherm SPF 30 High Protection Lait Solaire - 200ml - $35 - this paraben sunscreen continues to be one of my summer faves - it's got the UVA/UVB protection and lovely light texture that's so important but what I love most of all is the scent - citrus - and you know how I loves me some citrus!

  1. Very interested in the Biotherm one, does it work for oily skin?

  2. It has a light texture but it's not oil free - depending on how oily you are you might prefer one of the other 3 which are oil free!


    Best, Lisamarie
