For someone who is a beauty editor, I am sad to say, I don’t know all of the products on the market today. It’s mainly because there are millions out there & every week probably another ones comes out. A couple of weeks ago, I was given Cover/FX clear cover invisible sunscreen broad spectrum SPF30. It comes in 1 size; 0.5 oz/ 15 mL & retails for $45.00.
Cover FX is a Canadian brand that was founded in 2000 by Ontario Corporation. It was created to fill a need for a product that provides therapeutic benefits & environmental protection that is free of all irritants & can beused on all skin types including sensitive skin. In 2003 Cover FX launched is the most popular drug store in Canada called Shopper’s Drug Mart. Then in 2006 the products were launched in the UK & last but, not least in 2007 it came to the USA. The invisible sunscreen is the first product I have ever tried by this brand. What makes this product so cool is it’s light, invisible & non greasy. Once you apply it to the skin, it melts into your skin so nicely, you would never even know that you had it on. I apply sunscreen everyday so it is perfect for me. It is Broad Spectrum SPF30. It also doesn’t only protect your skin from the sun, but it moisturizes, nourishes, & brightens.
it is packaged in asmall container that closes well& is easy for me to carry with me in case I want to apply it again throughout the day. This is key for me as I don’t like to be without protection if I am out in the sun for any length of time. I mentioned in a previous post that I had skin cancer & sun screen is a necessity for my beauty routine. This will be a staple for me this summerIt is easy to apply as all you do is smooth it in with your fingers to a clean dry face. You should apply 15 minutes before you have sun exposure & you should reapply every 2 hours. Besides having no parabens, this product is free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, fragrance, toluene, gluten, DBP (dibutyl phthlate), mineral oil, camphor, and talc. It is rather pricey at $45.00, but it feels great on the skin & has additional benefits besides sun protection. I will say ti is 100% worth is if it blocks the sun from my face. After using it for a couple of weeks, I like it. My opinion is based on how it feels & how my skin is looking lately. I have not sat out in the sun for hours at a time so don’t have an opinion on how well it blocks the sun yet.
You can buy it or find out more information below on the company’s website or you can purchase it at Sephora.
