For those who know me, I am slightly anal about SPF protection. I feel naked if I ever step out of the house in daylight without a hint of SPF on. Rays are present even when the sun isn’t shining. They say hands are the first to show sign of age since it is usually overlooked. For those of you who drive, despite slathering sunscreen on my hands, my former 3+ hour driving commute resulted in a tanner left hand. I’m so glad I no longer drive to work, but I still need to protect the hands.
I’m a huge fan of Sephora – great values, sets, return policy, and range of brands. I’ve been waiting for Sephora to restock on their Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 30 brush for ages. Isn’t it nice to know that the e-mail notification for restock actually works? I’ve been too lazy to check if the Sephora in my building carries it. This SPF brush is great for touching up your face during the day (because you really need to reapply throughout the day if you’re walking around), or to put on your hands. It goes on clear and is only $12! Sephora says it’s a $35 value and I will believe them (unlike Gilt).
In other skincare news, I’ve been using Dr T’s Supergoop SPF 30+ Save Face Serum lately on my face – it is lightweight, yet moisturizing and perfect for the summer months!
