If there is something I like to spend money on it's bags and cosmetics. Especially the latter. Just yesterday my husband and I had a discussion on how youthfulness is beauty, especially in the U.S and this is something those girls who tan excessively are not thinking about. They'll be leather faces by their mid-20s and there's no turning back. I'm a big spokesperson for sun protection, since I want to avoid wrinkles as long as I can :) I rarely go tanning and I use a moisturizer with SPF year round. I fake a slight tan with bronzing powder during the winters and during the summers I get a natural tan while wearing sunscreen. I'm not much of a sun worshiper, but I sure do love my beauty products :) Here's some recent acquisitions:
Biotherm Lait Solarie SPF 15
We are going on a honeymoon in two weeks and I just love Biotherm products so I got us a big pump bottle of Biotherm Lait Solarie SPF 15
. Their whole product line is just amazing, absolutely love their toners and moisturizers, especially during the summer.
Now I'm a little cautious when it comes to Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Sun Defense for Face SPF 50 Sunscreen, since I've never tried it before. I read somewhere that it has a strong smell to it and I hate weird smelling beauty products. In fact sometimes I choose a product based on how good it smells :) Anyways, this was on sale, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I like the fact that it is SPF 50, since I want to protect my face especially from the aging effects of the sun. I'll get back to you when I've tested it out.
After getting "brand" stuff, I decided to buy a cheaper brand after sun. I chose Nivea Sun Moisturising After Sun spray solely based on the smell :D I smelled a ton of different After Sun products at the department store and this had by far the most neutral smell to it. I also like the fact that it is a spray.
I'll report back when I've returned from the honeymoon :)
