So I went back to Wal-mart yesterday and I found that sunscreen I was talking about in my post a couple days ago. And yes it was the Coppertone brand! I am not crazy…hehe.
However, I do not think this Coppertone sunscreen is very new. Well, the bottle does not have the “new” label on it anywhere. I cannot find any reviews about it anywhere though, which is a bummer. I bought it up anyway, even though I like to buy skincare products after reading the reviews. I decided to give this new sunscreen a try.
Besides, you cannot just go by reviews. Even if a product receives all five star reviews, it still comes to down to your skin. Everybody’s skin is different and what your skin tolerates is different.
The Coppertone Nutra Shield SPF 70 Dual Defense with antioxidant down the in the middle of the ingredient list, so not much effectiveness there. However, I am not using any antioxidant product, because they were breaking me out and I just have not tried anymore. So I thought even a little bit may be better than nothing.
Coppertone has this Nutra Shield SPF70 sunscreen in a smaller bottle face version and the bigger bottle for the whole body. I bought the bigger bottle, because I have found that the ingredients in many facial sunscreens is very smiliar to the body version of sunscreens, thus it is more economical to buyer the larger bottle.
I also kind of want to find a more protective sunscreen for summer coming up. Plus, the higher PPD the better for preventing premature aging and post acne marks. Update: The PPD is around 10 judging from the CIBA sunscreen calculator. A PPD of 8 is good, anything higher is great.
The consistency of this sunscreen is very light and it rubs in easily. My other Neutrogena SPF 30 color boosting sunscreen is much thicker. The smell is very light too, I could not even detect one. So far I like it, but it is only the first day. Update, to follow if breakouts or no breakouts occur.
Have a great day and don’t forget to wear sunscreen everyday, rain or shine!
