I love getting a discount, using coupons and getting things for free….but I also don’t mind paying more for something if I love it, if it works or if it’s super cute (take my Vera Bradley addiction for example!) Being the freckly, pale ghost that I am and having a fear of skin cancer, aging and wrinkles, I am big on sunscreen. But who likes the stinky, sloppy, heavy lotions that are out there? I certainly don’t. I found a great powder sunscreen that doesn’t stink and is super-easy to apply. bareMinerals makes this wonderful, easy to carry in your purse product that takes just seconds to put on. Simply pull off the cap, twist the bottom and the brush comes up, then swirl where you need 30spf protection. Granted, this is not recommended for a day at the pool or beach, but it is just perfect for going to garage sales, fairs, taking a walk, or even driving. The freckles on the left side of my face are darker than the right because of all the driving I do in the sun. I simple brush on and I have protection! I also brush this on the tops of my hands, arms, shoulders, ears and neck when I know I’ll be out in the sun for a while and reapply every few hours. It works and you don’t even realize you have it on! Now for the hard part…the price…at $28.00 for .14oz, it is a little high but so worth it for those of us who don’t like the sun, burn easily and want easy application. One bottle lasted me an entire year and I used it liberally. It can be found on-line, at Sephora or the bareMinerals store at Polaris. I recently used a 20% off coupon and saved a few dollars on it. Take note youngins…all that tanning will come back to bite you when you are older. (I was a tanning bed addict back in the day!) Protect your skin at all costs!
