Health + Beauty


Last summer a colleague at work gave me this sunscreen, Elta MD (the UV Clear SPF 46) right before I left on a trip to Greece. I had told her how much I hated most sunscreens since they made my face so white, and were impossible to clean off, or were filled with so many crappy chemicals that made it absorbent. But I’ve also had my fair share of basal cell skin cancer, so I have to be extra careful. She handed this to me and said she thought I’d like it. Well, after a 10 day trip in the sun, and a recent sunny spring break trip, both which put this paraben-free sunscreen to the test, I wholeheartedly endorse it. It’s not greasy, absorbs immediately, and leaves no white film. It does require a washcloth to feel like it’s off at the end of the day, but what sunscreen wouldn’t? All the Elta MD info (there are several different sunscreens they offer) says that it’s meant for sensitive, rosacea, or acne-prone skin. I found it online here.

  1. Holy toledo I’m going to have to try this one! Since I’m prone to all three of those conditions you mentioned….

    I’ve known about Elta for awhile, seen at my derm’s office, but never tried the sunscreen before, not sure why. I will definitely try this, THANK YOU for the tip!
