Welcome to my column “PSA,” (a.k.a. Postscript-Approved) where I recommend my one perfect, all-time favorite product I can’t live without. Enjoy!
In spite of my dermatologist, mother and every magazine I’ve ever read expounding how critical daily sunscreen is, I must confess I haven’t always been the best. I genuinely wanted to protect my skin but thought my makeup was coverage enough (spoiler: it’s not) and every sunscreen I tried was overly greasy or made my combination skin break out.
Shisheido’s version of sunscreen is oil-free and light—it goes on more with the texture of a makeup primer than the Coppertone slick you remember. It doesn’t pill under makeup either. At $34 for one ounce, I hear you—that’s not cheap. But I think we all can agree that leaving behind the breakouts from cheaper greasy versions and, more importantly, lessening the risk for skin cancer is priceless.
