Everyone is busy these days. I'm sure lots of people would argue that I'm not busy because I rarely have anywhere to be ... ever. No cubicle to report to, no meetings with um, anyone, and no one is forcing me to go to Costco on a weekly basis. Fine! In a couple of weeks I'll have to get the big kids to preschool twice a week but the dress code for that order of business is one level below yoga pants. However, despite my not busy life I still struggle with not looking like I just returned from a date with some exercise or rolled straight out of bed. I'm slowly working on raising awareness about the importance of letting moms wear sunglasses indoors in public for the sake of eye bags but I've also got another trick up my sleeve by the name of powdered sunscreen.
I've talked at length before about my battle with melasma during pregnancy (and beyond!) and for obvious reasons it's stupid to venture outside without sun protection but even if I go on a twenty minute run without some SPF I see sun spots later that night. It's fun.
Enter the Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen Brush by Colorscience. It's awesome because it's not greasy or irritating and contains no chemicals. After several days of wearing the mineral sunscreen my skin hasn't thrown one single temper tantrum in the form of a breakout which is impressive for my skin eternally stuck in 10th grade (plus fine lines + wrinkles).
Okay! Stop typing, Grace.
I'm giving you a side shot because I have the worst acne scarring on my left (face!) cheek and in case you wanted to throw that beauty of a braid on one of your hair boards on Pinterest. Laughitup. But, really ... I appreciated that the powder helped eliminate my perma-shine while also covering up my scar situation and not looking like I washed my face in liquid foundation (you know that look! I know you do).
There are a whole bunch of shades to choose from but I went with medium shimmer because you only live once. I believe the kids have an acronym for that these days. You can also pick between SPF 30 or 50 and they carry non-shimmer powder for any boring life leaders in the audience.
And I tried to get some "during" shottage but ....
Struggle is my maiden name.
Okay! I'm finished.
I do owe my child laborer a big thank you for her tireless efforts spent as a stand-in "still" subject to focus on while I fiddled with the camera's settings.
Thanks for reading, thanks for clicking, and thanks for humoring me and minute long stint as a fledgling beauty blogger.
