Protecting my skin is a major priority for me. Not only because it is the smart thing to do and by doing so I avoid any sun damage that can age my skin, but because in 2006 a mole on my back turned out to be melanoma-the worst kind of skin cancer a person can get. The kind that can spread throughout your body. Let me tell you sitting in my skin cancer specialists’ office and having him tell me about survivability rates over a mole on my skin has a weird way of putting things into perspective.
I grew up in Miami. I also have extremely fair skin. As a child I practically lived at the beach, and although my mother did a good job of protecting my skin I still managed to get burned. As a teen I can especially remember a few really bad sunburns. Turns out it was more than likely that damage that caused my melanoma.
A few weeks ago I discovered another weird mole on my back. I’m going in this Wednesday to have it biopsied. I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t at least a little worried…
That is why when I was approached by Neutrogena to test one of their sunscreens (I already use a number of their products including their sunscreens daily) I couldn’t pass it up.
For about a month now I’ve been using Neutrogena UltraSheer® Liquid sunscreen with an SPF of 70 daily. This is my new favorite sunscreen especially for everyday wear. It goes on flawlessly under my makeup (I’m wearing it under my make-up in the photo above) and is not greasy at all. It also doesn’t have that very strong “sunscreen” scent that I’m not a particularly big fan of-an added bonus. It comes in a 1.4 oz bottle and should be shaken with each application. It’s got a little marble in it so you can hear that it’s mixing. The consistency is that of a very liquid lotion and it absorbs quickly into my skin. I use it on my face, neck, and decolletage daily. I’ve also used it on my arms and shoulders with great results.
Each time I’ve used Neutrogena UltraSheer® Liquid I’ve put on makeup including foundation and I like that it doesn’t make my makeup look funky. It actually acts as a great matte base which is a wonderful bonus especially because I must wear sunscreen everyday.
I highly recommend this product because I think its great and I can’t stress enough the importance of protecting your skin-regardless of your skin tone.
