We all have things that we love to buy. Some of it we need. Some of it we use. Sometimes it is a bare necessity and other times a notorious nuisance. Some people buy mints. Others shoes. I treasure sunscreen.
With my Skin Type 1 completion sunscreen also can save my life. My father who is also a red head had cancerous moles removed from his body. Sunscreen is a tool to keep me save from the sun. I slather it over my face, chest, hands, and feet. Two or three different types bottles are a permanent fixture of my bag or purse. I might forget my keys but sunscreen never!
On our way back from Thailand I treated myself to some new Clinique sunscreen at the Duty Free shop. Super City Block SPF 40 is my face sunscreen of choice. It can get you through humidity and the tropical heat. It also goes on as smooth as butter and is as light as a feather. No oil slicks with this wonder tube.
On an impulse I also took home the Clinique Sun-Care UV body cream in SPF 50. It goes in a little greasy but is also water-proof. Over time I have found Clinique to be a reliable and oil-free brand. While my dermatologist has sung the praises of Neutragena. I’ve burnt (literally) through that brand. Coppertone has been a bit too heavy. Lancome: enjoyed the body cream, but found the face cream too oily. Estée Lauder rules. Vichy can do the job. L’oreal Ombrelle is effective but does not feel as good on the skin for long term wear as Clinique.
