SPF to the Max

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

Stila Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 Oil FreeSPF used to be confined only to sunscreen, but now it’s making an appearance in all sorts of cosmetics, ranging from lip gloss to moisturizers and foundations. Most makeup doesn’t offer protection greater than SPF 15, but Stila recently launched some new SPF 30 and SPF 20 products— just in time for those summer beach trips.

The new Sheer Tinted Color Moisturizer SPF 30 offers double the protection of its original SPF 15 counterpart. It’s a great alternative to foundation because it’s a lot lighter but will still even out your skin tone. Pomegranate extract (pomegranate is a great antioxidant!) also helps prevent future skinStila SPF 20 Shine Lip Color damage. Best of all, this moisturizer is oil-free, so you won’t have to deal with that dreaded midday shine.

Stila also hasn’t forgotten that our most kissable parts need extra protection, too. Stila SPF 20 Shine Lip Color comes in eight shades and provides color that is subtle, but not overpowering. Packed with Vitamins A, C, and E, it delivers protection against more than just the sun. All this plus a mild vanilla scent makes it one of those summer makeup must-haves that you’ll keep in your purse at all times.

RAWminerals foundationIt’s easy to get swept away by all the makeup products out there. Advertisers convince you that you need both cream and powder foundations, layers of varying cheek highlighters, and a blend of several eye shadow shades, just to leave the house. What they don’t tell you is the toll such a beauty regimen can take on your skin, such as blocking pores and aging.

But the secret is out—you can look great with weightless, natural makeup. Raw Natural Beauty’s RawMinerals. From foundation to eye shadow and “Mineral Glow” powder, RawMinerals makeup provides a natural look and a barely-there feel. The powders are light and smooth, and so can be layered without turning thick and cakey. The Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide in the makeup help protect against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, and age-defying nutrients help keep you looking young.

Make-up infused with pure plant extracts that beautify and nourish the skin. We like the sound of that.
