You wouldn’t be the first person to call me obsessive when you discover that I’ve added a fourth sunscreen to my routine, for my face alone! None give me the Casper the Friendly Ghost look and are all paraben-free, cruelty-free and contain no endocrine disruptors because they are physical blocks. I didn’t need an additional sunscreen but after reading about this one, I had to try it.
I know that layering sunscreens will not increase the SPF factor but this new one is amazing.
I discovered Colorscience when my daughter showed me this which I fell madly in love with and carry in my purse, everywhere I go! My grandson will even let me brush this on his face without complaining.
This new sunscreen is actually an elegant primer that appears to brighten my skin and smooth the texture. It makes my skin feel like silk, which is no small feat these days. It only has an SPF of 20 but I really use it for the brightening and priming qualities…the added SPF is a bonus.
I know this seems like SPF overkill but having melanoma will do that to a person. Here’s the order I use my sunscreens.
- I start with this Josie Maran moisturizer which has an SPF 47.
- After that has soaked in I use my Colorscience Primer
- I could almost stop there but I need a little coverage for spots and broken capillaries, so I use this Elta MD SPF 41 which is lightly tinted and acts as my tinted foundation.
- The final touch is a light dusting with this Sunforgettable.
In spite of all this, I still have small growths and spots burned off every 6 months so you’ll usually find me also wearing a hat!
This primer was a great discovery and I’m thrilled with how it smooths the appearance of my skin. I’ve tried other primers but was never as pleased with the results.
Do you wear a primer?
I know you wear sunscreen, right??
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
