Over the last few years, I've become more and more aware of how important it is to protect your skin from the sun. Let's be real, I still I enjoy a little sun tan sesh from time to time but I am happy to say that my lobster days are long behind me. #imagrownupnow 

On top of all the obvious health benefits of suncreen, it's no surprise that sunscreen is the number one thing you can do to prevent the early signs of aging. And yes, the concern is real (this may have been brought on by a 10x magnified mirror showing fine lines, followed by a quarter life freak out). Without going into details, I've started to realize that youth doesn't last forever... sigh. 

With the summer in full swing, I was looking for a face sunscreen that didn't break me out or leave me oily. I've tried quite a few drugstore brands that unfortunately don't react well with my sensitive skin. I must have been sending some kind of signal because Murad Canada kindly gifted me their Environmental Shield travel set to sample. I am happy to report that I have been using their products for several weeks now without any breakouts or irritation AND! Drum roll please... my skin already feels brighter and more radiant. And let's be honest, I'm also feeling a little better from a psychological stand point knowing that my face is protected ;)

Keeping in line with my current concerns, they also included their Age Reform travel set. Yes, I realize that I am not fifty, but I am also aware that using anti-aging products in your twenties can be most effective in maintaining the skin you have now. Needless to say, these products have me hooked and I plan on using them not only in the summer, but all year round. What are your skincare essentials? Would love to hear them in the comments below!

  2. I enjoyed reading this post - really made me think about trying some new products for my daily skin routine. I have been using the same products for the past couple of years but I guess nothing is wrong with switching it up a little ay... Marylou Collins

  4. Let me give you some examples. There is a small niche company that makes what I consider to be the best skincare products available that use all safe and 100% natural skincare products.
