With age comes wisdom and sadly this wisdom came to me after a long life of errors. In my opinion the most important products for you to use are sunscreen and eye cream. I reiterate this over and over because I didn’t know the benefits until I was older and I want you to learn from my mistakes. Two of the products that I received for review are ones I think you should consider for your life: G.M. COLLIN sunscreen and SCALISI eye cream.
G.M. COLLIN has two new launches this summer with their SPF 50+ Dry Touch Sun Protection Cream and SPF 60 Mineral Sunscreen Sun Protection Cream. These sunscreens are different because the SPF 50+ Dry Touch contains chemical filters while SPF 60 is a Mineral Sunscreen without any chemicals. I had a very hard time deciding which to keep and which to give to one of our readers but the deciding factor for me is that the SPF 60 Mineral Sunscreen Sun Protection Cream is labeled as fragrance free. Therefore one lucky winner will be able to try out the G.M. COLLIN SPR 50+ DRY TOUCH SUN PROTECTION CREAM for themselves.
I’ve been using G.M. Collin Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 60 ($32) for several weeks now. I’m not the ideal candidate to test a sunscreen since I try not to be in direct sunlight often but that doesn’t mean I don’t need protection, especially for my face. This is a very lightweight sunscreen that doesn’t ball up under my foundation. It’s water resistant for up to 40 minutes before you have to reapply. This is also PABA-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free and color-free formula. It contains 100% natural Titanium Dioxide (4.9%) and Zinc Oxide (4.7%) mineral sunscreens.
Other reasons I’m enjoying this is that it’s meant for people who are ultra sensitive to the sun. While I don’t mind my freckles, I do mind my sunspots from years of inadvertently going without protection. Having both UVA and UVB protection is great plus it’s safe for children so I keep it in my bag when I’m with the cutie pies.
Today’s giveaway is for the G.M. Collin Dry Touch Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ ($34). This too has broad spectrum protection with both UVA and UVB. According to the brand it’s easy to apply, has a light and dry finish, there’s no white residue, and it’s paraben-free. G.M. Collin Dry Touch is water resistant up to $80 minutes so it’s great for more outdoorsy people than I am. The sunscreen ingredients are Avobenzone 3.0%, Homosalate 15.0%, Octisalate 5.0%, and Octocrylene 10.0% which are chemical filters.
I’ve reviewed Scalisi before so I was more than happy to review their eye cream. As a certified eye cream fanatic I rue the years I ignored it. Now I don’t go a day without. I have no desire to let my eyes show my age and neither should you. Therefore you need a great eye cream and Scalisi Eye Cream is one you should consider.
This pump top container is long and slim. It can fit in a cosmetic bag, barely taking up any room, so that you can refresh during the day if you want. Here’s what Scalisi tells us about this:
- Diminishes the look of fine lines and crows feet
- Reduces the look of under eye puffiness
- Creates a brighter appearance for beautiful skin. No Retinol – great for sensitive skin
- Moisturizes and Hydrates
- Paraben free
I love that this is fragrance free since not all brands are. It glides on and never irritates my sensitive skin. It’s very soft and that’s how it leaves my undereye area. My only complaint at first was that I got more out of the pump than I needed for both eyes. BUT now I know to massage this over my top lip. Scalisi Eye Cream helps with fine lines and wrinkles and I have those there too. Double score!
Key ingredients include
- Jojoba, Macadamia, Hazelnut & Squalane: to hydrate
- White Tea Extract for skin rejuvenation for a radiant, fresh and youthful appearance
- Soy Proteins: rich in essential amino acids to regenerate
- Ash Tree Bark Extract: reduces the appearance of under eye puffiness
- Ubiquinone: antioxidant to fight environmental aggressors
- Yeast Polysaccharides: strengthens skin’s immune system, provides natural anti-irritants
- Peptide Pal-GHK and Peptide Pal-GQPR: combined helps to make skin appear firmer, more plump and tone.
- Perfection Peptide P3: for a brighter, smoother, radiant skin
Scalisi Eye Cream is also available on Amazon for $53.35 and free Prime shipping.
Don’t you want all that? I sure do and Scalisi is giving me hydrated skin and saving the truth of my age coming out. — Marcia
