It’s freezing out. I’d just like to throw that out there. So much for an early Spring right? But let’s chat sunscreen anyway because you should be worried about both in great weather and not so great weather!
Clinique Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face ($26) is a lightweight mineral fluid sunscreen that’s apparently even gentle enough for use around the eyes.
Hmmm! Have you every gotten sunscreen in your eyes? It’s so NOT a pretty thing! Oh the burning agonizing pain!
I have a secret confession! I hate fluid sunscreens. They always apply great but they go through this transitional phase during the application. They start out nicely at first but as you apply they go rubbery and suddenly scratchy and kind of matte, and finally they feel sort of mask-like and itchy. I tend to avoid them. I really wish US sunscreens would catch up to Japanese ones. The gel SPF that Japan products are amazing! Super fast absorbing, lighting hydrating, never sticky, tacky, or heavy!
But, I’m confident Clinique’s formula will be good so I’m going to give it a little try out.
I’ll let you know my thoughts.
What’s your fav SPF?
