What am I talking about everybody? Yep, our friend the SUN. Honestly, we should talk about sun protection year round. You're suppose to wear sunscreen whether it's Summer, Spring, Winter or Fall. So let's briefly talk about sunscreen today.
There are many sunscreen's available on the market. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends an SPF of 15 or higher, with both UVA and UVB protection.
I've personally never researched ALL the sunscreen brands on the market. I just usually pick up one at the store with the highest SPF and go. However, for this review I delved a little deeper. I care about my readers!!! HaHaHa
Jurlique's Sun Lotion SPF 30+ is Not Sweet
I was also concerned about the term "lotion". When I read lotion, it makes me think of something heavy. Sun + Heaviness (lotion) = HOT When I pumped Jurlique's Sun Lotion onto my hand it was very lightweight (it looked like a lotion, but didn't feel like one) and has a milky white appearance. Jurlique's Sun Lotion did have a stronger fragrant scent (floral) compared to the other Jurlique products that I've used so far. Personally I don't want my sunscreen to be scented, especially if I have to re-apply every 15 minutes as stated. So that was the second strike.
Once you rub Jurlique's Sun Lotion onto your skin, it gives your skin an irridescent shine. Well, at least I know it's on my skin and working. What was the third strike? I decided to research a little further and came across EWG's (Environmental Working Group) Sunscreen Guide (Sunscreen Ratings). The review for Jurlique wasn't that great. It has a good UVB rating, but poor UVA rating. Click HERE to see. Then Beautypedia/Paula'sChoice gave it a poor rating (that was in 2009 though). Click HERE. I couldn't access Consumer Reports because you have to pay for that. The reviews on Makeup Alley were all over the place. I can't recommend this product to my readers. There are too many things that are wrong in my opinion.
FYI - For everyone that wanted to know if Jurlique's Intense Recovery Mask was scented. The answer is just a smidgen. It smells like a regular mud mask to me. HaHaHa Have a Great Tuesday Everybody!
