Loving Life after 50

Colorescience and an Opportunity for Sunscreen

Heavens to betsy the sun was finally shining and I finally needed sunscreen.  It’s crazy, normally by now I have a nice tan. Or at least a nice glow. 2017 is not a stellar tan year so far in Ottawa. The sun finally came out and I finally used my new Colorescience Sunscreen,

Have you heard of Colorescience yet? I was sent a package to try and I am beyond thrilled.  Honestly the packaging alone was enough to catch me.  Packaging is where it is at totally,  I am that gal that will always try your product because of how it looks.  Am I alone on this?  Truly I have purchased wine bottle and water bottles strictly based on shape and color.  For Colorescience, what a new concept for me, powdered sunscreen.

Sunforgettable®Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50

Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50 is a self-dispensing mineral powder sunscreen brush.It provides dry, convenient, broad-spectrum sun protection that re-applies easily over makeup, and fits conveniently into my  purse or my pockets ( of which you already know I really like).

Goes Anywhere:  SPF brush feels weightless and fits easily into your purse. Perfect for on-the-go-women! and yep easily slides into my pocket.

No-Mess Powder: Skip the mess of traditional liquid sunscreens and upgrade to this mineral sunscreen powder. No spills, non-greasy. What sunscreen should be, no more stains on clothes yea.

Worry-free Physical Protection: the active ingredients are mineral-based and benzone-free… have you read the chemical ingredients in your sunscreen?

Self-dispensing brush: an all-in-one brush applicator makes it easy to apply throughout the day. Just use a circular motion to brush on for lasting protection.

Healthy Ingredients: The active ingredients, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, in Sunforgettable provide non-irritating, broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50 protection.

Lightweight Coverage: Light coverage perfects your look while protecting your skin. Perfect for touch-ups on the go.

and it is totally coincidental that I matched my “screen” to my dress.

OOTD

The outfit is an old one.  I found this dress and sweater at Banana Republic Factory Outlets at different times. They are however, a perfect match. The shoes are from Go Jane and of course the necklace is 7 Charming Sisters and how perfectly does this match.  Speaking of the Sisters, you may want to head over, total clearance sale going on right now.  The price tag of $7.00 on everything even beats my discount of alabo20 ( although 20% off of the full price in case you don’t see what you want on sale is still pretty darn good).

    Love those colors on you! And I’ve been wanting to try Color Science – my MIL also swears by it. Love that it is powder form and won’t leak in a handbag, etc.
