Meg here to apologize for the crazy megsmakeup week. I kicked off my party week Friday night with
OMFGem at Christian Audigier’s birthday party. I danced behind Michael Jackson, Miss Gem and I had had Hennessy with Snoop Dog (did you know you don’t mix that? You just add ice cubes). Anyhow it was a holiday weekend for the books but now I promise to get things back on track!
Here is Rachael Robbins filling in for me with her DD’s!
If you live in the NY/NJ area every holiday weekend, there is inevitably an invite to either the Hamptons or the Jersey Shore. Sounds delightful right? Well, it’s not so flipping delightful if you happen to be skin cancer girl (that would be me). If you’ve read my past post you know that I am at high risk for the pesky little rogue freckles that can turn evil at the first exposure to those yummy sun rays. Bi yearly trips to the dermatologist, and multiple biopsies is enough to keep me out of the sun. The bi product of this affliction is that I have become and absolute expert on self tanning products. More on that later.
So anyway, my horrors about being invited to the beach (which I love, sadly enough) is that I am THAT girl lugging an umbrella and a duffle size bag of sunblock. As I sit under my umbrella feeling like the boy in the bubble, I enviously watch all my freckle-less friends get all tan and toasty while I notice the few streaks in my self tanner and rotate my umbrella like a sun dial.
But there are those moments between the dangerous hours of 11am and 4pm where I like to leave my shaded prison and paddle my toes in the water. And for those occasions there are a number of 30+ sunblocks that keep me from bursting into flames. And for them, I am thankful.
But this year I have discovered something else to keep my dread of holiday weekends at a bare minimum! Neutrogena Color Boosting Sunblock in 30! This is a sunblock WITH a moisturizer in it, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a sticky coat of sun deflecting armor. BUT WAIT!!!! It also has a gradual self tanner in it!!!! So at the end of the day, even though I’ve been under wraps for the most part, I end up looking like I was able to work on my tan! There motto might be my next tattoo “Sun-kissed color from your protection. Sunshine not required” KIDDING.
Anyway, this product comes in fair and medium skin tones and is non-comedogenic, so it wont clog your pores. Brilliant!
Anyone else LOVE this!?
