PHYTO PLAGE Protective Sun Veil

PHYTO PLAGE Protective Sun Veil

This gel offers very light control. On humid days, my thick hair goes bonkers. This definitely keeps the frizzies from taking over while keeping my hair looking natural and not at all styled with gobs of products. My favorite way of using this gel is to apply it to wet hair and then let my hair dry naturally. It has a very subtle lovely scent that is almost imperceptible. I can't really tell if it actually protects my hair from the sun but it definitely helps keep my hair healthy looking. I will use every summer or beach vacation

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the Moisturizing Gel Oil formulation with SPF15 and thought to myself, "now this is going to be a great product" - and sure enough it is! The consistency of the Moisturizing Gel Oil is like that of a thinned out honey (the color as well) - but not as sticky as I would have thought it would be upon squeezing about a quarter's worth into my palm before applying after my shower. This gel oil actually has a very nice, light feel with good slip. It gave me the most incredible sheen and hydration. It was a tad sticky on my body at first, but it absorbed very well and within a minute or two felt very lightweight - not heavy, greasy or gummy. My skin was soft, supple and smelled like their lovely cocoa butter scent. The effects of the gel oil lasted all day until my next shower - never any dry flaking skin after a few hours. For those of you who like to glimmer at the beach and bare your arms and legs during hot days, this is perfect for adding after a base layer of sunscreen (this product has SPF 15 already). I also got great results mixing it with shimmer lotion like my beloved NARS Body Glow at night.

I've been in a bit of a body moisturizer rut lately, so this came at the perfect time for me. I wanted a great feeling, great smelling, light but super moisturizing product - that also has SPF for at least moderate daily outdoor exposure. Body Double, from new Australian skincare line Hissyfit, hit the mark in all the categories above for me. I loved the creamy, silky light texture of the lotion and the fragrance is really nice! It's a little sweet/a little tart - (think a Creamsicle) from the blend of Vanilla, Almond, Orange and Grapefruit extracts it contains. After applying 1x day after a shower my skin was noticeably softer and smoother, but without a trace of greasiness. The lotion absorbed quickly but had a nice "moist" effect that I liked. I was left with a subtle sheen on my skin and with regular use I could tell that my skin was really supple throughout the day. It's a nice size for travel and I found it was very concentrated to a few pumps went a long way to make it budget friendly as well

The great thing about La Mer's latest addition to the line, The SPF 30 Protecting Fluid, is that if you are a big fan of La Mer products (like I am) then this will be music to your ears. If, however, you have never tried La Mer before and need a wonderful primer/spf that will also make your skin look amazing (and doesn't cost as much as the original creme) -- then keep reading too! This Fluide De La Mer is a soft, pale green (just like the top of the packaging), and the texture is divine. It is a medium weight liquid that is soft, silky and light to the touch. I found that it went on my face smoothly and easily and had that trademark La Mer scent! It was soothing, hydrating and yes, provided that legendary La Mer glow! The finish is semi-matte. This was the perfect product to use as a primer. My makeup went on smoothly and there were no issues with the product caking, balling up or changing the texture of my makeup during the day. What is extraordinary about this product is that with the included SPF 30, there was NO trace of sunblock on my skin. The product sank in and dried completely clear. Many times primers with sunscreen still leave a faint trace of white or grayish cast on the skin, so this was one of my favorite features of the product. The technology used in this protecting fluid include tourmaline and malachite gemstones, which absorb light energy, to enhance anti-oxidant activity and prevent the appearance of discoloration. Combining that with their exclusive photonic spheres which capture light while diverting potentially damaging light from the skin and you've got one heck of a product. After using this product exclusively as a primer every day for several weeks, my skin looked radiant and the tone was fantastic. All in all, this is absolutely another home run for La Mer.

Ah, sunscreen, so many choices…and so little time. For my face, I am very finicky about the texture, the smell, the staying power and also the convenience level of the packaging (must be travel/gym ready). This new Clarins sunscreen was a relief in a sea of sunscreen I have been testing for the last month or so. I love the little cylinder tube which is super portable. The formula itself is very lightweight and on the thin side, but so concentrated I didn’t need much to cover my face (so it is very long lasting). There is a light fragrance, which dissipated quickly. The lotion glided on my skin without a trace of stickiness, white cast, or oil. The finish was matte. I found that it was light enough to be layered over my favorite serum and under my liquid bronzer or tinted moisturizer that I tend to favor in the summer months. As a matter of fact, this is actually the perfect skin primer before makeup application. The lasting power was fantastic on days I was working, running around outside or actually sunning at the beach. I had no breakouts or irritation from the product and it didn’t run or melt on my skin. It also left my skin soft and moisturized without feeling oily, so on the weekends I would just wear this with a little mascara and lip color and I was good to go! This is a non-chemical sunscreen which many of you will also appreciate. It’s made from 100% minerals. Yes, this is another product that is indeed worth every penny and I will be stockpiling! Note: As an added bonus if you are like me and always around computer screens, Clarins has added protection against electromagnetic waves in this formula.

  • This is an all-in-one essential. It's a SPF 45--everybody needs to protect themselves from the sun, body mist that cools you down, and it smells kinda nice.

It was not greasy, and didn’t flake or ball up in the heat. I also found it very moisturizing for my drier areas of my face and small lines around my eyes, and even my legs and elbows. The tone and texture of my skin was fantastic after using this daily! I used this successfully on both my face and my body and I did not experience any irritation or break outs. For the face, it does leave a sheen however, so if you want a more matte look, then it will be necessary to blot it and then apply a little pressed or loose powder over it. I usually wore this during a recent vacation without much other makeup and didn’t mind the sheen. I also liked that the Sunblock didn’t leave a sticky or grayish cast to my skin (which I hate!). It was definitely water resistant, but after going in and out of the water several times I did reapply as most experts say is necessary. However, when I was home and used it for everyday wear I found that even through very hot days it stayed put and was effective. A little goes a long way with this product which also makes it a great buy.

It has SPF 15 and is also a moisturizer so your skin is protected and healthy.

They really warm up my skin and enhance my tan, giving me glow that I love. I have not used many liquid bronzers, but I was intrigued that this formula was not only firming but suitable for face and body. I think this is a great bronzer and perfect for 2-in-1 double duty, especially for travel. The bronzer is a lightweight, thin, silky liquid that appears muted copper out of the bottle. Two pumps were all that was needed to cover my face. It glided on my skin and dried fairly quickly. The formula really evened out my skin tone and gave me a fantastic glow. It made my skin a shade deeper brown with copper undertones. It does have a touch of orange in it as well, which was flattering on my skintone. There is no shimmer, so it worked well with my powder blushes and bronzers to not provide overkill. It also stayed put and didn’t rub off during the day. It did not break me out or clog my pores and it hydrated my skin in the right places without feeling or looking greasy. On my body I really liked using it on my décolletage and my legs at night when I wore a dress and heels. I loved the feeling of the firming elements in the bronzer on my body especially, (after using it daily for a few weeks on my legs I did indeed see an improvement in the overall look of my legs). This will work best (and look the most natural) on shades in the Lucy Liu to Eva Mendes range by mixing a dime sized amount of the bronzer with a little moisturizer for the face. On darker shades and brown skin tones this is not needed. Note: Remember to wash hands after applying!

This is a fantastic product that I felt great about using to protect and enhance my skin. The texture is lightweight in body and creamy in feel, and it absorbed into my skin completely, leaving no residue on my skin. For general everyday type SPF protection, I really like this Lubriderm UV lotion. I was so happy that I could use it all over my body and it didn’t leave a greasy feeling on my skin! Unlike many sunscreens, it’s has a light, fresh scent that fades 10-15 minutes after putting it on (which I found pleasant)...very fresh smelling and not sticky. I’m pretty religious about wearing sunscreen, especially when I know I'll be outside for extended periods of time. But, on most days I tend not to use sunscreen with SPF 45+. I found this to be a great substitute using this lotion on as my regular lotion in the morning after my shower or after a gym work out. I felt good that when I was out during the day, I knew I had at least a basic SPF on. I now keep one in a few places in the house so that I can always reapply as necessary, and put some on my kids as well to protect their skin!

This is an excellent moisturizer at a fantastic price. After using this for several weeks, my skin, which had previously looked a little dull and had some creases and fine-lines, all but disappeared. In particular I saw a significant decrease in the lines around my mouth and eyes. The other benefits of using the Skin Genesis were much more even-toned and soft skin. The texture is smooth, light and silky and the smell is very pleasant. I also love that I got SPF protection without any sticky or filmy feel, which can sometimes happen in products with SPF in them. My skin was moisturized all day and I didn’t experience any breakouts. I would love to have this lotion for use in the summer months with a much higher SPF – perhaps it’s in the works!” G.L. Note: This moisturizer worked best with normal to dry skins. Those of you with VERY dry skin may not get enough moisture with this product.

I have tried other brands but couldn't find something I loved. For the first time, my face matched my neck, with no tell-tell line. The coverage is sheer, just enough to even out my skin. Since the color matches so well, you really can't tell I'm wearing anything. I have dry skin, and a lot of TM are not moisturizing enough. Again Paula Dorf is perfect. It gives me a glowy finish and doesn't dry out my face as the day goes on. This is a true tinted moisturizer - not a light foundation (which seems to be what a lot of people are looking for when they seek out a tinted moisturizer).

I cannot believe it’s taken this long for me to find a product like this! These light wipes provide a large amount of product for face and body (Two wipes were enough for my arms, upper body neck and face for example). The container itself is super light and small so I could take it everywhere with me and ended up having one in the car and one at the gym so I could reapply after my workout/shower. The wipes are pulled out via a small opening in the top and the top snap shuts with a hard plastic flip top to keep them moist and hygienic. What was also great is that there was no unpleasant smell, the wipes were so easy to apply, went on clear with no white or grey residue on my skin. Even better, the sunscreen stayed put, and did not irritate my skin or my face. It didn't leave a sticky residue and didn’t make me feel oily. After it's on, I really didn't even notice it was there. These wipes also contain skin-loving Jojoba and Vitamin E. Love it! This is now a must have product for me!

I have absolutely no complaints about this product whatsoever. It's simply the best- the texture is light and non-greasy and I used it on both my face and body. The company is fantastic and has created a sunscreen that uses ingredients that will not interfere with any skin situation- this product has stood by me during intensive sweaty workouts, and after professional skin peels. I have sensitive combination skin, and though the product is not oil-free, the finish is beyond any other sunscreen I have ever used. Extremely natural, not at all greasy. It actually makes my skin smoother and softer. I always use it under makeup now!

I have not had the best of luck with sunscreens for my face. – They either provided a mattifying effect but would break me out, or they still provided just a tad too much moisture and end up making me oilier. This Bliss Oil Free version is a very good blend of providing some moisture, protection and keeping the oil at bay. The texture and feel of this sunscreen is more like a serum and feels very light on the face. Within seconds it absorbed into my skin and took away the shine. During a day outside I would say I only had to blot a few times on my forehead and nose, but otherwise the product didn’t melt off or feel sticky under my makeup.

My combo/oily skin likes this a lot and has not caused me any breakouts. The texture is rich, but it sinks in quickly and provides a nice surface for applying my makeup. Great orange/citrus scent that's not a chemical smell, and the SPF is a definite plus. A little seems to go a long way; I've had this bottle for a month and have barely made a dent in it. I like the fact that a daily moisturizer has SPF so I don't fuss with another step. I use it daily and my skin feels comfortable (and protected!).

Its a medium-textured cream in a hand squeeze tube. I needed such a small amount to provide coverage for my face (even after reapplying after getting wet). What I also loved about this sun cream is that it made my skin so gorgeously smooth and really hydrated, especially when I burned a little - it really relieved the pain. A must have for the summer! Best of all, it didn’t cause any break outs or irritation and the amazing floral essences that are present in many of the Decleor products don’t disappoint here either. It’s so nice to have this fragrance linger while relaxing in the sun! This is a must for summer!

It has a delicious true vanilla scent, SPF 20, left my lips soft and never chapped, and was perfect as a lipstick base. One of my friends went out and bought one for herself, because she loved the scent when I used it, and now she adores it too. I absolutely reach for this product first when thinking about moisturizing my lips, and I am a total product junkie. Soft Lips provides just the right amount of "grease" - you actually feel like your lips are being moisturized when you put it on - but not so much that it looks like an oil slick. It leaves the lips with a nice sheen and works well under lipstick or on it's own for a natural look. This nice slim tube is also great to stick in your jeans, the smallest bag and keep at the office or gym of course. Best of all, my boyfriend, says I smell like yummy freshly baked goods when I wear Soft Lips - yeah!"

I have to say that the packaging drew me in. What a great idea that this sunscreen is held in a slim little tube and the cap has a little lip balm dome built into it--very clever and convenient for slipping into one's purse. The sunscreen itself is a little on the heavy side but I found that for drier skin like mine this is just the thing I need. It also has a very prominent floral fragrance which again did not bother me but should be kept in mind. It’s the lip balm that is the gem of this product – it has a great, smooth, creamy texture and a nice, creamy vanilla scent, (but if you have darker/more pigmented lip take care not to layer too much as it will begin to look white and obvious. I used this product on my face, hands and neck on a recent trip to a very hot climate and was very pleased with the protection and the convenience. Lumene products are now available in the U.S. at most CVS stores.
