Physicians Formula Offers Affordable SPF Bronzer

Last summer I brought you the recommendation of Colore Science Sunforgettable® a topical sunscreen powder with SPF 50. This is still one of my favorite products and you will find it in my purse all year long. But, I know it isn’t affordable for everyone, so I wanted to offer some other options for those looking to get the same experience but for less money. I am excited to say I found a comparable product for much less and more...

A Portable Sunscreen Must Buy!

One of my favorite outcomes of starting this blog has been the change in conversations I get to have with readers and friends. Sunscreen and sun protection were never topics I used to discuss with friends. In fact, many of my friends didn’t even know I had been diagnosed and treated for Melanoma until I started this blog. I was ashamed to admit that my vanity had caused a major life changing illness. Plus, cancer isn’t an easy topic...

Tula Hats! UPF Styles for All

Update to this post: 2 years after this post, I still have my original Tula Hats and love them.  They keep me safe in the sun, travel well and still look great.  A wonderful investment!

My Current Daily Skincare Obsession

I am always looking for a great daily face moisturizer which offers a broad spectrum SPF but doesn’t clog your pores.  I have acne prone skin and have to be very diligent with the products I use or I end up having high school flashbacks.  Of course my current age of mid thirties offers the new challenge of skin blotchiness, lack of radiance and those awful things called wrinkles.  While I know I could do some serious work...

Coppertone Water Babies

While it is hard to know what will kill you first, the chemicals in sunscreen or the sun, I still feel that it is important to use sunscreen on children when they are spending a day in the sun.  In our family, there is always a bottle of Coppertone Water Babies, SPF 50 or higher in the car.  We apply it at the pool, beach or even just a day on the farm or hiking.  Anywhere I feel my children will be exposed to the sun for more than 20...
