Because of my acne I have a prescription for Retin-A which causes my face to be even more susceptible to the suns uv rays. The dermatologist recommends that I wear a sunscreen of up to SPF 80 everyday because of this.
I have one major issue with…… I wear water based airbrush foundation. And let me just tell you those don’t mix!!!
When I went on my prescription I ran out and purchased a ton of different facial sunscreens that promote to be oil free, etc., etc. They all left me feeling greasy and smelly with my makeup just skidding off in a matter of hours.
Then I found this beauty at a Sephora VIB Rouge event.
Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 For Face
They sent me home with a sample, one of the most amazing befits of shopping at Sephora! So I was able to try it for several days under my airbrush makeup to make sure it did not conflict.
I love it and purchased a full size about a month ago. It does not leave me with that sunscreen smell, it sinks into my skin and after a minute there is no trace that I have applied it!
It is only SPF 42, not as high as I would like it, but it is much better than nothing at all which is what I was doing!
If you airbrush and need to add a sunscreen to your skin are routine I highly recommend this one!
