Keep your skin young with Lavera Sunscreen

I am always amazed when I think about how my life has evolved in the last 10 years.  Had you told me ten years ago I would using sunscreen I would have laughed out loud at you!  I am a Southern lady who always liked to get her tan on, but when I met my husband 5 years ago, all of that changed.  He made it clear he loved me and didn't want to see me harm myself with the sun.  Funny how love spurs us to look differently at things.  Today, after lots of research, it is simple healthiness that drives me and love was the catalyst. 

This is where loveTrueNatural comes in.  They offer a whole array of beauty products from hair care, body products, and various facial beauty products which have a very high standard of ingredients.  They don't use anything synthetic including: preservatives, emulsifiers, colors, petroleum based ingredients, and they do not test on animals!  Additionally, they only use natural ingredients in their products, and they fully disclose everything that is in their products.  One of my favorite things about the company is they use packaging that has the least impact on the environment, and all of their products are fully biodegradable.  

I am currently using a Lavera Product which has certified organic ingredients, and  Lavera has been awarded "Europe's Greenest Beauty Brand" out of 33 companies!  The Lavera Anti-Aging Facial Sunscreen SPF 15 UVA I am using is 100% mineral based with plant oils and shea butter.  It is immediately UVA, is Parabem Free, and contains "wrinkle-fighting Hyaluronic Acid."   I can hear you asking how all of this translates into real life usage so I will tell you.

At 36, my skin is not as soft or "moist" as it once was, and I find I have to use a great lotion on my face or it is literally dry and peeling. As we all know, even during the Winter when the sun isn't out, we need to wear sunscreen to protect our skin from the sun's rays which can cause damage, so I am usually needing to use multiple products.  Lavera Anti-Aging Facial Sunscreen is a nice medium thick cream.  It isn't so thick that it is unpleasant, but it is thick enough that my face has a nice glow about it once I apply it.  However, it is transparent and thin enough that I can wear it under my mineral makeup which means I can and do use it every day.  I love that it moisturizes well enough on it's own that I don't have to use two products in the morning.  I find the price to be a "medium grade" price because it sells for $24 for a 1.6 oz tube.

The bottom line I like this product and will likely purchase it again.  The only downside in my own personal opinion is that it isn't suitable for children so I have to purchase a separate product to put on their faces daily.  However, the upside is that Mama has another luxury treat that is only mine:  hands off!

Where to buy loveTrueNatural products:  You can purchase an array of beauty products on their website and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter .
