Beauty News: Soap and Glory Skincare Now At Target

soap+and+glory+skincare+USA

I blogged about Soap & Glory Skincare in January being widely available in Boots, across the pond, in the far UK. I recall ranting a tad bit about how it would take two years and a mule to get it over to our side of the pond. I’m happy to report that it’s now available at Target. I was at Target last Sunday and happened across it. Joy! I picked up a few bits to review for you but if you can’t wait you can snag it for yourself at your local Target as it’s widely available as of now in the US, bless be to the Soap & Glory gods!

Anyone see it at their Target yet?

Beauty News From Abroad: Stila Go Buh-Bye

stila+cosmetics

One of my favorite bloggers, BritishBeautyBlogger, has reported that Stila is officially pulling out of the UK. Seems Stila has been pulling the plug on most of the European markets and Asian ones for now. I imagine as they rebuild you may see them pop up again on your shores but for now it seems it’s become more and more exclusive to US shores.

How do you feel about Stila possibly not being available in your country?

Will you miss it?

Coppertone NutraShield Sunscreen Lotion Review

Coppertone+NutraShield+4

A little more SPF’ing in the cheap zone today kids! Many of you expressed a delight for a budget SPF after I posted a review on Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch (many of you also expressed your dislike! Wince!). For those not loving the budget SPF quick look away and tune in next week when I dig into the posher brands! And for anyone who said hells yes I want cheap SPF, here’s another one coming atcha!

Coppertone NutraShield for your face and body this season offers a high SPF and an affordable price tag.

But is it worth it?

Click it for the deets!

Coppertone NutraShield Faces Sunscreen Lotion is an SPF 70+ with the ability to protect from UVA and UVB. It’s pretty much sweatproof and waterproof so you’ll be happily skipping around outdoors, heading to the beach, or swimming it up at the pool without having the worry about reapplication over the course of the day. Put it on and it stays on.

Minor problems here and there but for the most part a good experience with this SPF.

It’s a creamy, creamy formula which is great if your skin is dry but not so fab if your skin is oily. My skin seems to like it but it takes a sec or so to absorb fully and it leaves a slightly white cast. I don’t mind the whiteness because I’m going to use a prep and prime to whiten anyway so who cares but the whiteness could be irritating to some however many SPF’s do this anyway so you may already be used to it by now. Remember with SPF less is more. You don’t need to slather your face in SPF. A simple dollop will do. I’m mentioning this because the creamy formula may sway oily skin users from trying this but I think with proper application it can work for just about anyone. The product is pretty much fragrance free or at least I didn’t smell anything, again a plus for anyone that doesn’t like scented facial products. Cheap sun protection? I has it! With it’s high SPF and inexpensive price tag I do think Coppertone NutraShield Faces Sunscreen Lotion could become your new best buddy this Summer. This will set you back $7.99-$10 bucks at most drugstores.

Now if you’re wondering about your body you can follow up with Coppertone NutraShield Sunscreen Lotion. This has pretty much the same moisturizing formula as the facial formula. It absorbs nicely, it’s not sticky, and it protects with an SPF of 70+ which makes it ideal for harmless UVA and UVB rays. I tend to spend much more money on facial SPF than I do on body SPF so this is pretty much a perfect pick for me to slather on my arms, legs, etc…..I used to buy Clarins but I’ve come to realize that I go through it so quickly it’s best to stay on the cheaper side when purchasing an SPF for my body plus SPF is generally good for a mere year before going off.

Overall, Coppertone NutraShield offers a nice inexpensive option for both your face and body. If you’re looking for a drugstore brand in the $10 range this would be something you might want to peep at. Pretty good stuff!

Anyone a lover?
