Question of the Week: How often do you REALLY wear sunscreen?

Answer: Not often enough! I tend to rely on sunscreen in my foundation for everyday use. And I KNOW that’s not enough. After all, I live on the surface of the sun (at least that’s what it feels like in the California desert right now.)

But if I’m going to the beach or spending the day by the pool, I’m golden. I recently discovered the Soleil Toujours line via my favorite high-end beauty destination; Blue Mercury. It’s a line of non-toxic and ​environmentally safe​ sunscreens and suncare items. The 45 SPF for face makes me feel well protected while frolicking. But it’s a physical sunscreen (you know, that white haze that blocks the rays so well) so that prevents me from using it under/over makeup.

So, maybe you have a favorite SPF recommendation for me, we heartsters? I’d love to hear it in the comments below!

Here’s what was up with the League last week…

we heart this is Currently Craving: although it might make me physically ill to pay $85 for an eye shadow quad, ever since they came to Sephora I have been lusting for the Tom Ford eye color quad in Last Dance. It is SO fall!

Ok, let’s hear it we heartsters: How often do you REALLY wear sunscreen?

  1. I don’t wear it often enough, honestly :( If I know I’ll be outside for awhile, I will definitely put some on and bring some with me to reapply. But for the everyday stuff, I usually don’t put any on.

  2. I wore spf every day until Murad discontinued my favorite one. Lately, I’ve been relying on some sunscreen for babies by Aveeno, but it’s a little heavy…I really need to hit up an Ulta or Sephora and go swatch some to see if I like it/am allergic to it, but I just can’t be bothered, ya know? lol *hangs head in shame*

  3. I DON’T, if I can help it, because I’m lazy and also because I recently discovered that my foundation applies AMAZINGLY well over just my facial oil. But if I actually have to be outside when the sun is up? Malin + Goetz SPF 30 moisturizer is pretty great. Doesn’t feel greasy, no white cast, doesn’t fight with my makeup, unscented. (Tho, one of my friends raaaaves about Biore Aqua Rich Watery Gel and its broad-specturm PA++++ protection, so that’ll probably be my next one.)
