Not makeup, but still important!
Ladies, I have finally found a GOOD sunblock!
For years I have dealt with sunblocks that make me look greasy and or put a white cast on my face.
Even the ones that claimed not to did exactly that. So I take a trip to Amazon knowing better is out there and I come across Neutrogena Age Shield in SPF 110. I've had experiences with Neutrogena and Neutrogena isn't perfect to me because I've used sunscreens of theirs before like the dry/sheer touch which definitely wasn't dry because it greased my face up.
But the reviews for this age shield one on Amazon were VERY high so I decided to give this one a chance and.. wow.
I LOVE IT! It's actually a bit thicker than I expected and it leaves a VERY slight white cast that disappears quickly. And it actually does not leave my skin shiny! Amazingly, it helps keep my face matte.
I use the Maybelline Fit Me foundation and y'all know how moisturizing that foundation is. It NEEDS to be set with powder because it's dewy from the get go. When I use this sunblock under my makeup, my skin actually stays nice and I don't look crisco'd up by the end of the day. I did not expect this sunscreen to have a POSITIVE effect on my makeup nor do I think it's supposed to. But it's fantastic to wear under makeup!http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037LOQQI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I wasn't even checking for the high spf, 55 is usually enough for me but hey, 110 is cool too!
I also recently changed my daily moisturizer from Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream (I still use it at night since it's pretty rich) to Garnier's Moisture Rescue Gel Cream Moisturizer
which is light but effective! That could also play a role in my makeup's improvement in daily longevity.
