Speaking of sunscreen (which I was doing yesterday), this week I’ve been using Isomers SPF 20. No, we haven’t had much sun (chance would be a fine thing!), but as I’ve said, I make a habit of always mixing in a little sunscreen with my daily moisturiser, if it doesn’t have any sun protection of its own, because you just never know when the sun will appear, and, of course, it’s easy enough to burn or wrinkle even when it’s overcast.
The problem I have with most sunscreens over about SPF 15 is that they tend to be really thick, white and gloopy. Not only do they make my complexion look even whiter than it was to start with (Which is quite the accomplishment, trust me), they also make the most horrendous base imaginable for makeup.
This is why Isomers is such good news for me. This has been formulated to be lighter and less greasy than most higher factor sunscreens, and it is. It goes on more like a moisturiser than a sunscreen, and doesn’t go all sticky and gloopy, so you can still wear makeup over the top of it without feeling like your face is coated in cement. Which is, you know, nice.
