Spring Time, Sunscreen Time

by Carolina Malis

Oh, sunscreen. If only I could write and ode to it. At this point anyone who knows me well knows I’m deeply obsessed with sunscreen, but hey, I have my reasons. If you ever told teenager Carolina to wear sunscreen everyday and re-apply at least 2 times a day she would have laughed so hard in your face, but today’s Carolina would basically marry you if you tell her you do so.  

Back in the day I just didn’t understand why my skin was not reacting well to all these products that were supposed to get rid of my acne, my sensitivity, my scars and the fine lines forming around my eyes, and it wasn’t until I started learning about the effects UV rays have on our skin that I finally understood how it was all related. But when I try to convince my friends about the wonders of wearing sunscreen everyday I use to get the same answers: "But it's raining! Why should I use it?", or "But it's so uncomfortable and sticky". Well my friends, that's only because you're wearing the wrong ones, or in some cases body sunscreen on your face, which I try not to freak out about when I hear those words coming out from someone's mouth, but secretly I do.

Thankfully people seem to listen and agree more about the importance of sunscreen when Spring and Summer show up so I'm taking this opportunity now that the warmer days are ahead of us to try and get you as into sunscreen as I am.

 

Neogen Day Light Protection Sunscreen

On my sunscreen journey I've found many I like and many I dislike. I know, I'm a K-Beauty obsessed so you'd expect this coming from me, but I swear there's nothing like Korean and Japanese sunscreens. Every single time I've had an anti-sunscreen friend try one they end up liking it and changing their opinion about it (a personal victory I must say), and I have to admit, many of those times it's been Neogen's Dermalogy Day Light Protection Sunscreen that did the magic.

This Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates free physical sunscreen is not only super lightweight but it offers real protection (ehem , ehem, SPF 50 PA +++) to your skin while hydrating it thanks to the rose and raspberry extracts contained in it, which makes it a great catch for those who have dry skin. One of my favorite things about it? It absorbs really really fast and feels more like a second moisturizer than just a sunscreen. At the very beginning I wasn't much into the scent but it grew on me and now I really enjoy it (imagine a light mix of oranges and roses). Another huge pro? It's by far one of the sunscreens that layers best with my makeup giving me kind of like a primer effect.

The thing about every single Neogen product is that all of them will always be sensitive-skin friendly, so you can always expect calming and repairing effects from its products: this is not the exception. When I'm feeling my skin getting stressed, redness approaching or acne trying to takeover I always pick this sunscreen as my go-to.

 

What about you? Do you wear sunscreen everyday? If not just let me know and I assure you I'll get you into it.

Pore Control All-In-One: The Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser

Now, how would you feel if I tell you there's a product out there that can get rid of makeup, excess sebum, dirt, toxins, blackheads and dead skin build up in only one step? I know, you'd think I'm lying, but I'm not. I got introduced to Neogen Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser around a year ago during this same time of the year and my very first question was: How can a cleanser contain clay in it and not be extremely drying? Specially now with temperatures dropping I don't wanna put anything on my face that's gonna take hydration away. But must admit I was extremely surprised after the first time I actually used it.

Real Cica Micellar Oil & Foam Review by Bambi

I feel like 2018 is a Cica year - all the Cica products that we can see all around the place. This trend seems to be associated with K-beauty but it's not only about Korean brands that started this cult. There's always a reason why something becomes popular so I was positively surprised when I heard that Neogen has decided to make a series based on Centella Asiatica and release the Cica series. Currently, my double cleansing is based on Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam. How does it look like and why you should give a chance to this due?

New Season, New Cleanser, Real Fresh Foam Cranberry

One of the things I swap immediately when temperatures drop is my water-based cleanser. While during summer I tend to go for gel ones (which will get rid of excess sebum) for colder weather I tend to lookout for light-foam ones that will protect my skin's hydration levels. Now, there's lots to say about cleansers in the skincare community. The pH should be low, the pH should be high, some ingredients are good, some ingredients are bad, there should be no alcohol in them, there should be some kinds of alcohol in them… and a long, long list that could go on for years, but at the end of the day it's all about what works for you.

Bio Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon Review by Bambi

Exfoliators can have different forms but one of the most controversial is for sure peeling pad. Why are they so controversial? Because they usually mix two forms of exfoliants - chemical exfoliants and mechanical exfoliants. Today I want to show you the product I wanted to try for ages mostly because it was curated byCharlotte Cho, the owner ofSokoGlamas well as I've heard lots of good opinions about it from many beauty bloggers from all around the world -Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon. How do mixing chemical and mechanical exfoliators work? Is this mix better than traditional exfoliators?
