Mr. Sun


I don't understand people who don't wear sunscreen. We all know why we need to protect ourselves from the sun's harmful rays, and yet there are still so many out there who don't take the time to wear sunscreen. Sure, it's an extra step in the morning routine- but I think that it's worth the time if the alternative is unhealthy and damaged skin.
So here are reviews for two sunscreens that I used over the summer and am trying to finish up.

1. Drunk Elephant Umbra sheer physical defense SPF 30 $38
Right before this product launched on Sephora.com I had read so many positive things about this sunscreen. I like all of the selling points about it being more natural, but at the end of the day I don't think this product is worth the price. There are other great sunscreens out there (Alba Bontanica has one that I really like) that are also on the natural side for a fraction of the price. This sunscreen also has a very unique scent that is very hard to explain. The smell doesn't really bother me, but I can understand why some would find it unpleasant.

2. Boscia daily defense sunscreen SPF 50 PA+++
I'm 80% sure that this sunscreen made my skin breakout. I also didn't find it very moisturizing, despite the reviews I read about it before purchasing it. I can't even find it on Sephora.com anymore. I'm using it as a sunscreen for my neck and arms in order to finish it ASAP.
