Recently I had the good fortune to try out a lovely product from emerginC, their 30+ broad spectrum sun protector ($37.00) 4.40 oz. I always use a sunscreen because I am so fair, so I was anxious to try this. Usually I am stuck with chemical sunscreens that react with my skin and cause rashes. The emerginC sunblock is a physical sun protector. It has two minerals in it, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that allow the sun’s rays to reflect off of the skin. Normally physical sunblocks are heavy, thick and do not absorb into the skin very well, leaving a film of white on the face. As soon as I put this one on though I noticed a huge difference. It absorbed right into the skin! And you only need a tiny little bit, which makes it very cost effective.
emerginC recommends this sunblock for all skin types, as it is lightweight and non greasy. It provides powerful UVA/UVB protection, has anti-oxidants like vitamin E and green tea and includes vitamin C to improve skin tone by removing dead skin cells. The sunblock also comes in tinted form ($39.00). Honestly this is the best sunblock I have ever had the pleasure of using.
