This Summer felt like the Summer of the SPF. SPF has evolved a fair bit this year and I’m seeing more and more options that offer a higher SPF factor of 50 and up. Such products are the norm in the Asian market however here in the US we tend to stick to the 30 range.
Another interesting evolution is drugstore makeup brands offering SPF options. Asia is flooded with a variety of SPF products and brands in particular offer not only color cosmetic options but also an SPF product or several. It’s very rare that there isn’t some SPF option available from most brands in Asia.
Versus here in the US, where we don’t normally see our favorite brands such as say Maybelline or Revlon offering a product available exclusively for sun protection.
Neutrogena changes all that with it’s new Ulta Sheer Liquid Daily Sun Protection. Does this mean we’ll see more drugstore brands offering SPF products all their own?
Let’s hope so!
Happens to the best of us I fear.
Jared Padalecki perfect example of how age creeps up on us. What happened to his baby face? Awww..but at least his wrinkles give him character!
For you Jared, I have a package of Beauty Story Platinum Bird’s Nest Jelly Eye Masks. And for me too dude…sometimes we all need a little pick me up!
Dark spot treatments seem to be taking the skincare world by storm at the moment. Everyone is busy creating some sort of system, skincare, serum, lotion, or potion to fight aging spots, hyper pigmentation, or sun damage.
The newest one to hit the market is the Philosophy Miracle Worker Dark Spot Correcting System. I happen to be a big supporter and huge fan of the Miracle Worker Pads so you know I’ll be trying this one out ASAP.
I miss you Soap and Glory but the Fall is nearing and you did promise to tell me all about your new retailer of choice here in the US come the cool weather.
For now, I’ll keep myself comforted with your latest offerings from the UK and daydream about the time I can purchase you right here in the states again!
When it comes to eye rollers you can sell me snow in the Summer, I buy into them baby.
I can’t tell you how many useless eye rollers I have hanging out in the makeup graveyard. Ones that promise to brighten, ones that promise to rid me of wrinkles, ones that concealer, ones that promise to depuff…
Most don’t live up to all their promises though but I keep buying ‘em anyway!
Next on my list of eye rollers would be the new Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Brightening Eye Roller….will it truly be the one that actually works!?
