bareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen

We never thought we could be SO IN LOVE with a sunscreen, but we are! bareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen ($28) is a powder. We can dust it on our faces and bodies for perfect sun protection minus the greasy, runny, smelly mess that sunscreen usually involves. Plus, it comes in three shades, so we can match our skin tone for a flawless finish.

So one of the big things in the news right now is how the FDA doesn't regulate sunblock in cosmetics so they don't all block UVA, which is important in preventing skin cancer. They do, however, prevent sunburn. It might be important to note that this product is listed as containing both UVA and UVB. Even bonus, it's a bare minerals powder without cornstarch, which means it won't kill me. I wonder how a powder will stand up to my summer sweat though.

As an aside, I'm totally in love with Neutrogena's Dry-Touch Sunblock. It doesn't feel greasy at all, and it absorbs right in.

Kimberly, I had no idea that cosmetics sunblocks didn't have to block UVA rays! That's so good to know. Thanks!

Lindsay, I didn't until recently either!! You definitely want to check... if it doesn't say, it's more likely to only block UVB. Not burning is still a good thing, but you want UVA if you'll be exposed more.
