Some of you might not know that I have a history of precancerous skin problems. I recently had 2 skin biopsies which came back abnormal (again!), so this news reinforced my need to be conscious with sun protection. I was gifted some BU Sunscreen for testing purposes, and I actually really like it! I like that I can protect and boost my skin’s defense against aging caused by the sun with this naturally sourced, antioxidant-infused, broad spectrum SPF sunscreen.
If you’re concerned with keeping your skin as healthy and youthful as possible, you need to involve sun protection in your skincare routine. The best defense against the damaging effects of UV rays? Slather on sunscreen. Let me remind you why you should be wearing sunscreen everyday (yes, every day!). Sun and UV damage can happen at all times of the year, not just in the summer. In the winter, you might not feel like the sun is out, but it is, and it’s UV rays are just as able to cause damage as any other time of year. The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) rays, a type of invisible radiation that can harm your skin and lead to premature aging or skin cancer. So if you have skin (regardless of age, gender, location), I recommend you wear sunscreen at least SPF 30 and make sure you reapply after 80 minutes, because it does not last longer than that. I usually apply before going to work and the before leaving from work, but I’m going to step it up to every 80 minutes.
bu SPF 50 White Sage Scent Sunscreen Spray 1.0 oz
This SPF 50 with White Sage scent provides high sunburn protection. I love that this is perfect for outdoor sports or for people like me with sun sensitive skin who need high UV protection. The light White Sage scent is clean and refreshing.
Some of my favorite aspects of this sunscreen are that it is:
- Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB high sunburn protection
- Oil, Alcohol, PABA, Preservative and Paraben Free
- Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic with topical anti-oxidant Vitamin E to scavenge free radicals
- Water & sweat resistant (80 mins)
- Not tested on animals and Vegan
- No synthetic fragrance in the variations with scents (natural citrus and white sage)
- No nut, nut oil, gluten, soy, dairy, egg or colorants
- Sustainable Practices and Carbon Neutral Manufacturing
- TSA travel approved sizes
No parabens, preservatives, nanoparticles, nuts, nut oil, gluten, dairy, egg, soy, sulphites or colorants have been added to these products.
The power of nature has been harvested to help protect my skin from the sun!
I really like that it includes ingredients like:
Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamont) Fruit
Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil
Santalum Album (Sandlewood) Oil
Lavendula Agustifolia Oil
I go to the gym most days of the week, and I apply sunscreen before I go. Other sunscreens I have tried will come off when I sweat and land in my eyes, stinging my eyes and blinding me. Ouch! Thankfully, BU Sunscreen is sweat proof and waterproof, so I can feel protected from harmful UV rays and happy that it will not come off while I exercise.
bu SPF 30 Fragrance Free Sunscreen Spray 3.3 oz
The SPF 30 Fragrance Free spray provides high sunburn protection (96.7% UVB).
The sunscreen is so easy to apply, feels like a puff of air going on your skin and dries to a silky smooth finish. It should feel like it’s moisturizing your skin, not sticky or tacky.
An ideal choice for outdoor enthusiasts or athletes subject to prolonged sun exposure while training, working or playing. The 3.3oz bottle, with approx. 500 sprays per bottle, can go with you on the plane, as it’s not pressurized and is under 3.4oz- which is TSA compliant.
Great for individuals with sun sensitive skin, this gentle non-irritating formula is an ideal choice with no fragrance for even the most hyper-sensitive skin.
To use it on your face, make sure you don’t spray it directly on your face. Spray it on your hands, rub your hands together then apply to your face, neck, ears, etc.
