I've always heard lots about Skinauthority but never had the pleasure of trying it out for myself! Luckily, I was recently asked to try out the Redness Relief and Sunscreen moisturizer summer duo from Skinauthority, and couldn't wait to try it out and see what all the hype is about!
This duo works together to address all kinds of summer skin-ailments you might come across. Of course we all know how important wearing our daily sunscreen is, but what about if you forgot or wasn't as thorough as you should've been with applying it? Well that is where the Redness Relief cream comes in! Use this cream to treat burns, even bug bites, excema, and any general redness you may have in your skin.
You don't just have to save this duo for summer, the Redness Relief also works great for dry, itchy, winter skin too! Sunscreen is also a must in the colder months too! In fact, the Sunscreen moisturizer is one of Skinauthority's best selling products, probably due to the fact that it has a lovely, exclusive dry finish you won't find in most other sunscreens! It works great under makeup and even in humidity too!
When my products showed up, they couldn't have come at a better time! I was just leaving for a trip to Utah to visit a beautiful lake nestled in the mountains, where I would be doing lots of boating, wake boarding, paddle boarding, playing in the water, and just getting lots of sun!
I used the products for a few days before getting to the lake, and fell in love immediately. Both are super smooth, but still rich and creamy so you know it's doing you some good, and it's also great for all skin types!
I use my SkinAuthority sunscreen moisturizer with SPF 30 every day under my makeup and have absolutely loved using it. It blends into my skin very well, unlike a lot of other sunscreens. It doesn't feel the least bit heavy or greasy on my skin either. My skin soaks it up in seconds, and I can move onto my makeup. I was already impressed with it before I ever got to the lake to really test it out by spending all day in the sun and water.
The first day, I forgot to take it with me. I just applied it in the morning, but ended up getting in the lake a few times and didn't reapply. I was in the sun the entire day plus got wet about three different times, but when I got back to the cabin that night, only my nose was a little bit red. The rest of my face, neck, chest, and ears, where I had applied my Skinauthority sunscreen was not burned! I was beyond impressed!
For the rest of the week on my vacation at the lake, I was more diligent about applying my Skinauthority sunscreen throughout the day, especially after getting wet, and experienced no sun burns.
Since returning home, I'm still wearing it daily under my makeup and love the quick dry finish it has, and that my skin is not left feeling greasy at all. It's easy to apply my makeup right after, and my makeup looks perfectly matte, even though I've used sunscreen under it!
After getting a bit of a red nose the first day at the lake, you can bet I was testing out the Redness Relief cream. Actually I tried it a few times before that too, because I tend to have red blotchy skin, especially upon waking up in the morning. I did notice that it seemed to even my skin tone out a bit, but most importantly, my sun burned nose was gone the next day after applying this cream to it, and I experienced no pain, itchiness, or irritation whatsoever from the burn!
Being at the lake with my family, I actually ended up sharing my redness relief with a ton of people who got a bit burned, including my husband. He, unfortunately, got a bad burn on the back of his neck, so I had him apply this that night. The burn looked much better the next day, and he said it had helped immensely, because he had been feeling some pain prior to using the Redness Relief Cream, but not after!
I've absolutely loved using both of these products from Skinauthority, and wouldn't dream of going another summer without either of them! They are both amazing products that are very effective! Sunscreen is so important, we need to be using it everyday anyway! I've tried my fair share of sunscreens and am super picky about them, but this sunscreen totally impressed me! It doesn't feel like a sunscreen at all and is actually very moisturizing too! This is a sunscreen I will be using daily for many years to come! I absolutely love it!
