What's in my Beach Bag? Sunscreen!

This post is majorly delayed...should have been sent out last Monday. Better late than it is:

Finally - Nice weather in Michigan this past weekend! Spent some time on the lake and loaded up my beach bag!

First things first, sunscreen. You can wear beach cover ups and long linen pants, but you can't walk around with a bag on your head. I always wear a higher SPF on my face since it sees the most sun (I'm not a fan of hats!). Here is what Mike and I wore on our faces all weekend:

CellCeuticals Photo Defense SPF 55+
I used this while I was in Vegas and it was a scorching 90+ degrees out. I only used it on my face and didn't burn at all while out in the sun by the pool all day. PhotoDefense is meant to protect skin against daily UVA and UVB sun exposure while simultaneously combating premature skin aging and moisturizing. This didn't turn my face white, went on smooth, absorbed quickly, and didn't break me out!

La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid
I love love love La Roche-Posay sunscreen. They don't mess around with their products. It's designed for normal to combination skin, super light and has a matte finish. This one didn't break me out either.

This fluid provides SPF 60 and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with breakthrough Cell-Ox Shield, to protect skin. Other benefits and pluses: High UVA protection, water-resistant, helps protect skin from sun damage, fragrance free, non-comedogenic and tested on sensitive skin.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30
Quick warning: this is not to be used alone for sunblock for your face. I love this stuff, but it's not the only lotion I use when out in the sun all day. This is my DAILY moisturizer and it is divine. It gives my skin a dewy look, but without making me look or feel greasy. It moisturizes really well and doesn't break me out. I can use it by itself with just some blush or a bronzer and don't feel the need for foundation. I love using it alone, I feel like I'm giving my skin some room to breath!

My dermatologist turned me on to Aveeno and I use it for body lotion (Positively Smooth smells great!), facial lotion and face wash (Ultra Calming Cleanser).
