The Only SPF You Need

We have a new SPF obsession, which may come as a shock to you all. Why? Well, being as pale as we are, we’re not ones to usually play favorites with our many SPF products. In fact – whether it’s because our Mom taught us to be this way or because we realized what the sun does to your skin as you age – we are basically hoarders when it comes to any and every product protecting one’s skin from the sun.

Enter PCA SKIN’s Sheer Tint Broad Spectrum SPF 45: Some people have super hot summer flings with a super hot he or she, we’re having ours with an SPF. Though we’re pretty sure this isn’t just fling material; this isn’t that person you just take one night to Ruschmeyers. No: This SPF you take to Capri and marry.


The broad spectrum sunscreen has a light, silky formula that protects like a sunscreen and perfects like a primer. After a few stints on the beach we were delighted to realize we had something that both evens your skin tone as well as a acts as a serious SPF (for real, this thing is water and sweat resistant up to 80 minutes). While it gives you a great glow in itself, its silky texture also makes it perfect underneath makeup.

Apply it in the morning after whatever routine is your go to, give it 15 minutes to absorb, and after that either apply your makeup or go bare: Either way the sunny world will be your oyster. Just make sure to reapply every 2 hours, which we tell people to do no matter what the SPF product is.

So really potatoheads, have you been looking for that reliable companion that’s a one and done of summer sunning where you don’t have to pack anything else? That companion is here: It’s real, and it’s fabulous.
