When reaching for an SPF, there are 3 factors that always come to mind: Stick to mineral-based, keep the application simple and use nothing under SPF 30. Which is exactly what Colorescience had in mind when creating their Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen.

What appealed to me about Colorescience was the convenience factor — I can apply the refined powder in a flash, knowing it will blend seamlessly into my body, face and scalp. It is also a physical, UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sunscreen that's free of harmful chemicals and toxic ingredients.

I toted the SPF along with me to Vegas last week for my husband and I's 5th anniversary celebration, where we spent most of our days at the pool. I was so pleased with the product — no mess, no streaky creams to fuss with and after many margarita's in, I was still able to apply it with ease (real talk, people.) The powder-based product kept my skin looking matte and it's water-resistant formula left me free to have fun and not too concerned with re-application (only every 80 minutes!) Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen comes in two strengths, SPF 30 or SPF 50 and is available in 6 shades: fair, medium, tan, fair shimmer, medium shimmer and tan shimmer.

Colorescience has a great deal happening right now, where you can "Buy Three Get One Free" of their Sunforgettable Powder. That also includes free shipping! Stock up for the rest of the summer season and enjoy, I know I'll be!
