This summer, I’ve been using the crap out of the Andalou Naturals Color + Correct moisturizer with SPF 30. This CC moisturizer was introduced along with their relatively new 1000 Roses line of products, which is targeted for sensitive skin. I was pretty excited when I initially saw the 1000 Roses line on store shelves for the first time early in the summer, since I’m a fan of Andalou Naturals in general and I’ve been trying to reach for more natural and gentle products as my skin has become a little more sensitive than it used to be.

Usually I write about the products I use up on a monthly basis. I’m traveling at the moment, so I thought that I’d switch to writing about my used up products every time I finish five of them.

Thankfully we have real, working internet at our hotel (for the first time in a while) so we have a break from connectivity struggles! To start out with, I wanted to run through some of the products I’m reaching for the most while on the road, category by category.

Recently when Sephora was offering double points on skincare purchases for Beauty Insiders, I decided to try some new sun protection. I’ll absolutely admit that it felt a little strange since Seattle winters generally involve short daylight hours and overcast skies, but I knew that I’d want to be prepared for the odd day here and there where I actually might see the sun. I decided to try the Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector, which comes with SPF 43.

Summer’s on its way out, and I just wanted to say a few quick words about a sun protection product I loved using over the past few months. Sun Defense SPF 30 by B. Kamins Laboratories was one of the sun protection products I received over the summer in my Sample Society subscription boxes, and it wins the prize for being my favorite sun protection product that I used throughout the season.
