One of the many perks of our job, is that we get to test drive new products that are about to hit the market. These are some items that we’ve tried and now simply can’t live without.
I love the ocean. I love the beach. I love being in the ocean and on the beach. But two years ago, I learned about the damage our sunscreen is causing the coral reefs. I then faced a dilemma: Protect my skin or protect the reefs. The issue was on my mind, until I was introduced to MyChelle’s Sun Shield Stick. Now, I can protect my skin and the ocean and not feel guilty.
Most sun products sold by MyChelle Dermaceuticals are deemed reef safe and biodegradable, and all products cruelty-free. Huge wins in my books. It helps that the Sun Shield Stick also goes on clear and doesn’t feel sticky or oily on my skin. The .5oz size makes the stick transportable, and because it’s a solid, I don’t worry about any lotion leaking into my bag.
I was skeptical at first. I’ve never used a solid sun screen before, but I was pleasantly surprised. Unlike most liquid sun screen’s, the stick didn’t run or become streaky when I hit the water. Instead, it moisturized my skin and didn’t come off or streak down my arms. At an under $15 price point, it’s hard to say no to this product. Definitely worth it!
