While summer is coming to a close, protecting yourself from the sun's harmful rays is necessary year round.
We all know the struggle of applying greasy sunscreen, so spare yourself the extra grease and lingering smell by using the perfect alternative: sunscreen face sticks! Bloggers from our Lifestyle Collective dished on the amazing advantages of these easy sticks and how they are guaranteed to be your new sun protection staple!
First up, we've got the Amore Pacific sun protection stick with broad spectrum SPF of 50+! This golden tube is the perfect thing to add to your basic skin care routine. All you have to do is apply it in the morning, targeting your most sun-sensitive areas and voila! You're done. Reapply as desired and liberally at least 15 minutes before you're having fun in the sun.
Of course, we aren't the only ones raving about this product, The Fashion Poet said, "Sunscreen in a stick is what every gal on the go needs. It's easy to stick in your purse or carry on and does the trick with SPF 50." Remember what we said about the grease factor? Sequins at Breakfast couldn't agree more by saying, "'This sun protection stick is ideal for protecting the most sensitive spots on your face; eyes, lips, nose. 50+ sun protection which leaves your skin feeling soft instead of oily."
And for good measure, it's important to point out that no one wants to lug around a massive bottle of sun screen when this product is ""Perfect to throw in your beach bag for a glamorous yet easy application of sun protection! Smells luxurious, too!" Amy Beth Campbell took the words right out of our mouth. Style by Danika shared the same feelings when she said, "I loved how easy it was to just throw this in my purse and re-apply my sunscreen on the go."
The Sun Bum sunscreen face stick is another face stick of SPF 30 and is just what you need. This face stick is convenient, easy to use and mixed with vitamin E. It is the perfect summer accessory.
The Hip Suburban said "Living in South Florida, sunscreen is a must every day. This compact face stick is easy to carry with me and reapply. It also doesn't clog my pores or make my face shiny. " To this effect, Impossibly Imperfect also said "Loved this! As someone with sensitive skin this didn't cause me to breakout!."
We know this product may not be on your mind with the incoming fall months but take it from Hallways Are My Runways, "At first, I was apprehensive, but I really loved the stick. It was easy to apply and I felt like I covered my entire face with it."
