I have so much sun damage on my face from years of not applying sunscreen. There are two reasons I didn’t protect my face the way I should have:
1. Stupidity of being young – I was more worried about getting tan than the consequences.
2. I have been allergic to almost any sunscreen for the face my entire life – the breakouts caused from sunscreens out there have been so terrible it is impossible for me to use sunscreen on my face.
I did finally find a sunscreen that works for me, but it doesn’t last very long and costs about $30 for .15 ounces. Now, I think that I have discovered a replacement… the ZENMED SPF 40 Mineral Sunscreen!
The ZENMED SPF 40 Mineral Sunscreen is specifically for the face and can be used on adults as well as children over six months. This is great news, because both of my children have inherited my skin sensitivity. They will never have to worry (and I won’t have to worry about them either) about being protected from the sun and/or having reactions to the product they are currently using.
We have been spending a lot of time outdoors this season and I have been applying the ZENMED SPF40 Mineral Sunscreen to myself and my two children. It works like a charm! It is completely odorless, which is really nice if you are applying somewhere other than for water activities. I was a little bit nervous when I first put it on because I felt like it did leave a little chalky film (even though it claims not to), but I was wrong. This rubs so smoothly into the skin and it also doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy.
The only downside to this product is that it is not waterproof so it must be reapplied every time you get your face wet or you are sweating excessively. However, I have found that a little of the ZENMED SPF 40 Mineral Sunscreen goes a long way, so the 2.5 ounce tube will probably last quite a while. This is also good news, because for a 2.5 ounce tube it will cost approximately $35. This might seem a little bit high, but for those of us that have had sensitivity issues to sunscreens this seems like a steal.
One final note… the ZENMED SPF 40 Mineral Sunscreen can only be purchased online. But thanks to our new “Buy it from” links on our site we have eliminated the hassle of searching for the product. I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase this product if you have any issues with sunscreen sensitivity. It has been a life changer for me and my kids!
