Favorite Sunblocks This Summer

My family and I love the outdoors, but if there’s one health secret I’ve learned from my mom, it’s to never be out in the sun without protection.

With summer in full swing, I’ve decided to share with you my three favorite sunblocks. I assure you that each one is worth its weight in expensive anti-aging serums.

Avène Very High Protection 50+ I was asked to try this sunblock out when I  wrote a review on it for Calyxta, my face has never looked back. I love how it just melts into your skin without making it super greasy. There’s a slight floral smell and whitish cast, but both fade rather quickly. This also works great as a foundation primer.

Mustela SPF 50+ Very High Protection Sun Lotion: Fin has been taking swimming classes twice a week this summer so this yellow tube is a staple in his back pack. He doesn’t mind when we slather it on, it never stings his eyes while making sure his soft skin is guarded from any burns. I’ve trusted Mustela for him since he was a baby.

 VMV Armada Sport 70: My husband, Carl, has been training for triathlons this year which means that he is either in the water, on his bike, or running up a storm. All outdoor activities that require maximum protection. Unfortunately, he is also extra picky when it comes to putting on sunblock (hates the stuff). My mom recently gave us a tube of Armada Sport and his is now a convert. It’s super high protection but not sticky, thick, or heavily fragranced. Definitely a gold medal winner.
