On a recent trip, I bought a bottle of Coppertone Sport Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 specifically for my outdoor workouts. True to its “Sport” claim, this sunscreen offered long-lasting coverage, even when I was sweating bullets (unfortunately, I sweat profusely when I work out). Although it’s a decent sunscreen that will do in a pinch, I think there are better mineral sunscreens out there, so I will probably not repurchase this after I’ve used up the bottle.
I’ve definitely been on a zinc oxide sunscreen kick lately. It’s the best all-in-one sunscreen filter available in the U.S., and it’s reef-safe. When I first came across Coppertone Pure & Simple Sunscreen SPF 50 For Face in CVS, the high zinc oxide percentage caught my eye: a whopping 24.08% (the FDA allows up to 25 percent in sunscreens). Plus, it was labeled specifically for facial use, and I rarely see that in a drugstore. Usually you only see general-purpose sunscreens…
I recently got to try out a few products from Fleur & Bee, a skincare company that just launched a few days ago. Fleur & Bee is focused on delivering natural, vegan skincare products that are priced under $35. If you need another reason to give this company’s products a try, you might be happy to hear that Fleur & Bee donates 1% of its profits to Days for Girls, an organization that works to help women and girls get access to menstrual care and education.
