@knw1 Here's a bit more in-depth info (for you and anyone else reading along who's curious) on the topic, explained by a chemist far better than I can explain it: at labmuffin (Michelle Wong's site), visit /how-do-sunscreens-work-the-science-with-video And it sounds like you've had a very interesting career! What sunscreen(s) do you normally use, and how high of an SPF are you looking for? Have you tried one of La Roche-Posay's high SPF sunscreens? I have their Anthelios Melt-in Milk Sunscreen SPF 100, a chemical sunscreen that feels quite greasy on my mostly-dry combo skin and gives me a very shiny, almost "glass skin" finish. I use it mostly on exposed body skin now that temps have warmed up significantly; it feels too heavy on my face in hot weather. I haven't tried their new Anthelios UV Correct SPF 70 Daily Face Sunscreen with Niacinamide yet, but that's another one to consider. This reminds me to order La Roche-Posay's new Anthelios UVMune 400 SPF 50+ Invisible Fluid from overseas to test. In addition to mexoryl 400 (new UV blocker), it contains mexoryl XL, mexoryl SX, tinosorb S, uvinul A plus, and uvinul T 150, plus octisalate and avobenzone. If this sunscreen can't effectively block UVA I and II, I dunno what can. 😂 It's not available in the US of course, because the FDA won't let us have nice things like tinosorbs and uvinuls. But I'm sure it can be found online at European retailers. EDIT: thanks for mentioning vitamin D supplements. I spent part of last month "debating" with anti-sunscreen folks (the "all sunscreens are dangerous and cause cancer and keep people from getting any vitamin D at all" crowd 🙄) about the various ways humans can get vitamin D besides sunlight. Certain foods are fortified with vitamin D. Not that people generally consume enough of those foods to get adequate vitamin D, but still. And supplements are available.

These are my June’s empties:  I enjoyed the masks except the lip mask really made no difference. But I have others to use up . The foundation samples were actually all really good matches for my skin color and tone. The benefit eyebrow gel was ok but I like brow gel that comes in a spoolie brush.  The LaMer sample what can I say, it’s heavenly. But too costly. Love Korres products. Bath and Body hand soaps are my favorites. That Kiehls hand salve was wonderful on my body, as well as my hands. Overall not a bad month!
