Today, Guest Beauty Blogger Lindsay Rogers of Belle Belle Beauty shares her thoughts on La Mer SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid…
Coming from a family touched by Melanoma, I could try to talk you into wearing SPF all day long. But the SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid by La Mer (call 212 872 2739) will do all the talking for me. If you aren’t a SPF fanatic already, this stuff will make you a convert.
The fluid is truly a pleasure to use and is the perfect marriage between luxury skin care and UV protection. Ideal to wear under makeup, this formula is incredibly lightweight. It also doesn’t cast a whitish shade on the skin. But still manages to provide broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. I’m slightly sensitive to some sunscreen formulas and this went on comfortably with zero irritation.
But then La Mer takes it a step further. Going beyond just regular ole sun protection, the fluid actually improves the look of my skin. La Mer uses photonic spheres to achieve a luminous appearance – not too glowy, but just enough to hide discoloration and add radiance. The SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid also won’t dry you out. La Mer uses natural humectants from seaweed to hydrate and protect the skin.
I’ve found I can skip my usual primer and use this in its place. The fluid is easily blendable and a fairly small amount will cover my whole neck and face. SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid by La Mer leaves a great canvas for makeup. Foundation glides right over the newly hydrated skin.
