THE REVIEW: NEOGEN DAY-LIGHT PROTECTION SUNSCREEN

October 30, 2015 Charlotte Chozz

 

I’m going to be that annoying friend and nag you about using sunscreen, even in the fall and winter. If you don’t want to be told what to do, at least stick around for a few paragraphs because the sunscreen I’m going to talk about could be a game-changer -- especially for you sensitive skin types.

I’ve often told you how important sunscreen is in many of my blog posts. In fact, it’s so important to the health of your skin, I’ve dedicated a whole chapter to it in The Little Book of Skin Care just to drill it in extra deep into your conscious.

Yes, every time you step outside without sunscreen. I want you to picture me with a very disapproving look and a finger “tsk, tsking” at you. I mean, if you’re not going to do it willingly, it’s probably time that I guilt you into doing that proper step of your skin care routine.

Confession time: Despite this being an extremely important category, I feel my sunscreen curation has lacked variety. The handful of sunscreens currently on the site are extremely worthy to be on Soko Glam, but it irks me that there haven’t been many options for you when you consider all your different skin types and needs.

So I’ve made it a point to be on the lookout for a sunscreen formulated just for sensitive skin types. I have heard SO many of your voices loud and clear about your skin being picky and reacting terribly to sunscreen. As an esthetician this is extremely upsetting to me because of just how crucial sun protection to your skin’s health. There should definitely be one for everyone. Finally, I think this might be the answer…

Enter Neogen Day-Light Protection Sunscreen.

It comes is in this little unassuming tube that looks like it would be found at your local pharmacy. In other words, the packaging wasn’t particularly exciting to crack open, but that quickly changed as I opened it and I put my nose to it.

MMMM. It smells great -- not like your typical poolside sunscreen that makes you think of cheap motel pool. After diving into the ingredients, I realized the pleasant, natural scent is from the natural extracts of rose, honey and raspberry. When I squeezed the sturdy bottle, I realized just how much hydrating goodness it has. It has all of the qualities of what I look for in a  good sunscreen: It absorbs quickly, has titanium dioxide to physically block UV rays without leaving a white cast, and incorporates ingredients with anti-aging benefits, which is great if you’re going to be slathering it on every day (which I hope you do!).

Some key ingredients:

Rose extracts - Long known for their ability to intensely hydrate the skin.

Honey extracts - Function as anti-inflammatory ingredient. Prevents damage with a host of anti-aging properties including antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins.

Raspberry extracts - Redness in your skin? Raspberries help constrict capillary activity, which minimizes redness in the skin. This is especially great considering the skin around my nose and cheeks gets notoriously red in the winter.

And lastly: the protection - This gem has broad spectrum 50+ protection. It’s basically the most coverage you can get in your sunscreen, and it protects you from both of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. (Cancer, pigmentation, and burns be gone!)

What I love about Neogen is that top skin and R&D researchers in Korea formulated all their products with natural, gentle ingredients specifically for sensitive skin. You can see why this is my go-to sunscreen this season. I need something more gentle and nourishing and that still offers protection from the sun’s damaging rays like a coat of armor.

And because I’m all about that layering with my beauty products, it pairs nicely with any makeup I use after. I’ve tested this with both BB creams and cushion compacts!

I’ve said this before and this won’t be the last time I say it: Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product out there, so I’m glad to bring you the best of the best in my latest curation. Check it out here.

You bet I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for even more sunscreen options. This is where I need your help. Sound off below: Which sunscreens are your favorite? Are you a sunscreen junkie like me? How do you reapply your sunscreen? Any tips?

I can already feel it: the dry leaves scent taking over the city, the nights getting colder, the hot morning coffee becoming a must, the breeze getting stronger and.. the skin getting drier. Couldn’t we just take the last one off the list? Is that really too much to ask?

Lemon Green Caviar Essence
Review BY Diana Siuta

I’m here to give you guys a short little review of this new product I’ve been using called the Code 9 Lemon Green Caviar Essence & Tox Tightening Pack Kit. Can you say that three times fast? I bet you can’t.

Code 9 is a product line designed by Neogen, one of my favorite skin care lines, so I knew right from the start I was going to love this exfoliator+moisturizer product. Below is the product description of the Lemon Green & Tox Tightening Pack taken off of the website.

Hydrogen: your secret weapon
behind hydrated and plump skin

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many year I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong was I.

As the weather is colder and a cold breeze comes, you can feel that your skin gets dry and flaky. You try makeup by applying the BB cream or foundation, but it might not work well! By reapplying your moisturizer, you try to reduce the dryness and flakiness on your skin, but result would be same. Because It is not about a moisturizer, but an exfoliator!

Now is the perfect time to switch out your routine and get a right exfoliator to revamp your skin to a dewy, healthy one!
