SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50
The tinted sunscreen provides high broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection and is made with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. This product feels fresh and dewy so it’s great for dry skin. In support of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, SkinCeuticals is teaming up with the MRA (Melanoma Research Alliance) to fight Melanoma by spreading the word on Facebook. Post a video or written testimonial on how Melanoma has either affected you or someone you know, and a donation will be made to this important cause ($20 to MRA for each video upload, and $2 for every post).  In addition, Skinceuticals will give away five Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 products each day for the most inspirational video submissions.

Philosophy Hope

Philosophy Hope In A Tinted Moisturizer
Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar has a bit of a cult following so it’s no surprise that they took this popular formula and made it in a tinted moisturizer.  If you’re used to wearing foundation, try lightening up with this pleasantly scented moisturizer with a SPF of 20.

Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45
This might be the coolest and most convenient sun-protecting product on the market.  Just swipe this translucent, no-color powder on over any makeup you’re already wearing for instant protection.  It comes in a formula for oily problem skin as well as a bronzing version.  Re-apply as much as needed without any grease or make-up mishaps.  Perfect to keep in your bag at all times.

Sun Protection for Lips

Lavanila Healthy Lip

LAVANILA – The Healthy Lip Sunscreen, SPF 30
Your lips have some of the thinnest skin on your body and yet we often forget to protect this delicate area.  Many sunscreen lip balms feel drying or have a chemical aftertaste but the Healthy Lip Screen from LAVANILA with SPF 30 is creamy, non-whitening and tastes minty.  It moisturizes your lips while blocking the sun’s harmful rays.
