I might dub “Sunscreen” as the 2017 Summer beauty trend, even though we didn’t have the best summer to put theses products to good use. But with this amazing sunny weather and extended summer we have been having, you may need to think twice about putting away the sun protection. That’s the true irony of it all, isn’t it? You don’t have to wait for a sunny day to use sunscreen. We seem to be wired somehow, to think that our skin is safe if the sun isn’t out. In reality, sunscreen should be part of your daily beauty routine.
So, if you’re going to put it on your skin, every single day, you really have to love it!
And…. it should be good for your skin too!
Natural, mineral or physical sunscreens can be a great option, because don’t use potentially harmful ingredients that are absorbed through the skin. Rather, they use compounds that provide a physical barrier to protect it. Most of these sunscreens end up having a thick, white, chalky residue, which discourages people (like me!) from using it. The solution: AlumierMD’s new line of broad-spectrum SPF sunscreen lotions! I tested both the sheer hydration and clear shield. After using the tinted and non-tinted formula, I realized that what I liked most about the AlumierMD line is that it had a smoother finish and texture. It just applies with ease and blends well with my makeup. No chalky finish here.
When it comes to my personal preference, I didn’t see much of a difference between both products, as in,…I couldn’t tell you which one was my favourite. But what I can tell you, is that I got a few compliments on the complexion of my skin, after using the tinted clear shield. Coincidence? I think not!
If you’re looking to discover more AlumierMD products, Ottawa Laser Clinic carries a vast majority of their skin care line. The owner and head esthetician Alison, was raving about the line when I went in to see her last week. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that she is carrying the full line in her spa. Based on the quality of this sunscreen and her recommendations, I am really looking forward to trying more skin care products by AlumierMD.
I was given sheer hydration and clear shield tinted sunscreen for my open and honest review.
