You know that feeling when you see a huge throng of people waiting for something but you don’t know what? That’s essentially the situation you’re in right now with the Allure Beauty Box. Not only is it your last chance to unwrap our exceptionally bougie August box which is stocked with a beloved K-Beauty moisturizer, a buzzy bakuchiol serum,and more, but it’s also a prime opportunity to get lined up for our September box as well. (Because let us tell you, it’s gonna be a doozy.)
We’ve been sworn to secrecy on the full box, so we can’t give too much away. But we couldn’t let this moment slip by without teasing one of our favorite products from the September box: a full-size tube of Sunday Riley Light Hearted Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen. The SPF-spiked formula is the first of its kind from the skin-care gurus at Sunday Riley, and the brand is pulling no punches. The broad-spectrum cream relies on both physical (zinc oxide) and chemical (octisalate and octocrylene) sunscreens for boosted protection, and while it has a pretty pink tint coming out of the bottle, it applied sheer on our colleagues with fair, olive, and deep skin tones.
“I have sensitive skin, and I love how Light Hearted Sunscreen helps tame the underlying redness I often experience — giving me even more reason to reapply it throughout the day. (The golden rule of skin care: Protect your skin from the sun year round using a broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher daily, applied as the last step in your skincare routine.) And because this sunscreen is fortified with turmeric, which minimizes free radical damage and serves as an anti-inflammatory, it allows this formula to soothe as it protects.”
