MM - Giveaway Winner & Sunscreen!

Monday, April 21, 2014

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  Each Monday I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.

Also a special thanks to the new followers who joined my blog!
I really enjoyed and had fun reading each every one of your lovely comments.

Now onto my Makeup tip for this week.    

Week 15 - Sunscreen Lotion

My makeup tip that I want to share with you this week is sunscreen.  Sunscreen is so important to use now that the weather is getting warmer for spring and summer.  It's important to wear sunscreen lotion before you apply makeup or you can use foundation, BB, or CC cream which has sunscreen in it already.  It's also important to wear sunscreen when going to the beach or doing any outside activity and applying it throughout the day.  It is so easy to get a sunburn when you do not use any type of sunscreen lotion.  

There are so many different brands of sunscreen available and I like to use Neutrogena and Coopertone.  The SPF I usually like to use is SPF 15 to SPF 45 and I use a separate one made especially for faces.

What sunscreen lotion do you like to use?

  1. YAHOOOO!!! I'm doing the happy dance my friend! Just what I NEEDED, too! I just read my comment to hubby....only I would WANT to be rescued by pirates! haha! You've made my day sweet friend! THANK YOU! Sweet hugs, Diane

    1. PS We take sunscreen serious here in Florida. I always wear it at the beach but I'm surprised at how much sun I get even on hikes. I have a farmer's tan from hiking! lol Hugs!

  2. Woo hoo! Congratulations to sweet Diane :) Have a lovely day, my friend!

  3. Congratulations to Diane!
    Having spent the last 13 years in Florida before moving to Texas, I understand the need for sunscreen. We always took the advice given that you put it on in the morning like lotion, even if you're not going to the beach. The sun can still do major damage through windows or just being outside at the park for a little while. We usually bought Coppertone or Bullfrog, and I've always used a foundation with sunscreen in it.
    Have a great day :-)

  4. Congratulations to your winner! I just found some neutrogena BB cream moisturizer and sunscreen (30 SPF) that I really like. It's tinted, so I can skip foundation too! Another thing I'm realizing is that I need to put sunscreen on my hands even when I'm just running errands. Have a good day Julie!

  5. I'm always on the look for a good sunscreen. Not that we need it much in Seattle! Thanks for the post.

  6. Sunscreen is a MUST, but in Greece, where the sun is strong for 9 months out of the year, it is indispensable!!

    Have a lovely week!


  7. Congratulations to the winner! I've just been using Coppertone. It works great for face & body and has a high SPF. I have to wear sunscreen and sometimes even a hat if out long enough.

  8. Congratulations on the lucky winner! Such a good reminder to take care with the sun. I stay out of the sun during bright hours and wear a hat and light cover up along with Aveeno. xo Karen

  9. Congrats to Diane on the win!

    I used to keep sunscreen in the baby bag so I'd always have it, but now that the kids are over, and we had such a long winter, I'm going to have to do something to remind me to take it along!! We use several types, Coppertone for the littles.

  10. Yay Diane! I used to use Neutrogena Sensitive Skin sunscreen, but they discontinued it...argh! I hate when that happens! Now I am on the hunt again for something that doesn't smell and won't give us a rash! ;)

  11. I always wear a sunscreen, so important. And yes a different one for the faces. Thanks for linking up to Monday Morning Madness!! Looking forward to seeing you on again on Monday. I am loving your posts :)
