Is This Game-Changing Sunscreen?

Coppertone-at-the-beach-on-a-fence

Around Easter is when I access where I am in the sunscreen department for the upcoming season. Did you know that sunscreens expire? Yeah, check yours because they do.

So why don’t you replace yours with these fun foaming ones from COPPERTONE? A first of its kind with over 5 years in the making, is their WaterBABIES Pure & Simple Whipped Sunscreen SPF 50 ($10.99/5oz @ target.com) and CLEARLYSheer Whipped Sunscreen SPF 30 ($13.99/5oz @ walgreens.com, target.com). Each of these comes out as a foam instead of a lotion or oil. As you can see from the picture, it really looks like shaving cream! But know that it sinks into skin pretty quickly and there was no scent to either.

I’m pretty weird about my sunscreen in that I hate when I can feel it on my skin and this usually only happens on my body, not face. And because of this, I tend to stick to two brands I know don’t make me squirm but I’m delighted to report that these two did not feel like a layer on my skin. The WaterBABIES one felt a tad chalky to the touch after it dried down but other than that? These get the thumbs up from me.

Will This Be a New Skin Care Trend?

Dermalogica-Daily-Superfoliant
Charcoal seems to be quite a common beauty ingredient in the last few years whereas a powder face exfoliator like this one is more uncommon. I've come across a powder ones like this and this a few times over the years, so is it safe to say that a powder exfoliators are going to be a new trend in skin care? Only time will tell!

DERMALOGICA Daily Superfoliant ($58/2oz @ dermalogica.com, ulta.com) is a powder exfoliant that’s activated when mixed with water. It contains alpha hydroxy acids and a new anti-pollution technology, which uses Binchotan Charcoal, to help purify the skin from daily toxins from the environment. And then it uses Niacinamide, red algae and Tara Fruit Extract to keep new exterior toxins at bay. The environment is a major anti-ager with all that the skin has to face! So to give your face a thorough cleansing with this one, they recommend mapping out the face and massaging the activated product in small circles around it. There is a brochure inside the box that goes into more detail.

What I like about this one is that it stays fresh until you activate it so no rush to use it up in a specific amount of time.

Just tap out half a teaspoon to wet hands and create a creamy paste. Then rub around the face for about 1 minute and rinse. And it’s formulated without fragrance, color or parabens.

Are you ready for a new trend in the beauty category?
