Done With #1 – Do You Feel the Allure?

30 Apr

I’m wearing sunscreen. Took me long enough.

Well, to be fair, I’m not putting it on every day as I should. But when I don’t I think about it – I remember –  which makes me comfortable crossing this one off The List.

I know this one isn’t the most earth-shattering to read about, so I’ll be brief. But it is a big deal for me. Being able to continue my sun-worshipping ways without looking like I have a crocodile bag for a face in twenty years is a win. And here’s the product I bought into that made it all happen:

aveeno radiant moisturizer with spf 30

And for the record, I only just found out this has been an Allure Best of Beauty pick for four years when I went searching for an image. Iso care about Allure, so I’m even more sold on the awesomeness of this product. *detect sarcasm alert*

Lightweight, silky, way cheaper than Benefit, and it doesn’t make my face taste bad. What it does is leave me with softly glowing skin without a lot of gross chemicals. I give it full credit for the surprising number of compliments I’ve gotten in the last months on how I look healthier and have a glow. (Or it could be that I’ve been working out 3-4 times a week, whateves. Not a big deal. :) ) Not pregnant-lady glow, thankfully, but a just-walked-in-from-the-sun-and-I’m-full-of-life kind of glow. I’m in love. Big thanks to Sunrise, whose suggestion made me finally take home the pretty bottle I’ve looked at on the Target shelf for a year.

I said I’d be brief, so I’ll stop waxing poetic about lotion. I’ll just leave you with this last little nugget, one of my favorite ironic songs from high school.

    Oh, my goodness! You haven’t been wearing sunscreen?! Okay, I’ll refrain from the catechism, but I AM so glad to see you’ve found a sunscreen you like! I use one from Neutrogena (sp), specifically for faces, and I love it; though, sunscreen in general is not my favorite, even if it doesn’t leave that oily residue.

    Love that song! Love this even more —-> “I give it full credit for the surprising number of compliments I’ve gotten in the last months on how I look healthier and have a glow. (Or it could be that I’ve been working out 3-4 times a week, whateves. Not a big deal.” Oh, we both know it’s a BIG deal.

    Happy Monday, my friend!

      Oh I wear it when I hit the beach or know I’m going to be in the sun all day, but the daily wear you’re supposed to do? I’m only just getting on that bandwagon. I guess it means I’m finally growing up! :)

    *high five* this is great news, and as I was reading, I kept thinking “I use that too!” completely forgot I recommended it :) crossing that off the list must feel good!

      I love virtual high fives! And I hear your voice at night, too: “Christy, come on. Think if it as washing the day off of your face. It’s necessary.” You should make business cards: “Sunrise: making the world a more beautiful place, one face at a time.”
