Graydon Elements Sun Cream Complex Review

I started using Graydon Elements Sun Cream (the full name is actually Graydon Clinical Luxury by Nature Elements Sun Cream Complex…a bit of a mouthful) a few months ago when I was looking for a new mineral-based sunscreen that wasn’t going to be super heavy and shiny.  So far, it has met my criteria.  Despite the cream’s thick and pasty…

Avene Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 Review

Avene Mineral Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF50 is a really good daily sunscreen option.  It is by far the lightest textured mineral sunscreen I’ve come across (that isn’t loaded with alcohol).  It feels sort of like a whipped lotion, if that makes sense. I’ve been using it for a couple weeks with no major reactions or breakouts.  It appears to…

Human & Kind Day & Night Cream Review

Human & Kind Day & Night Cream is a pretty good, basic moisturizer that can be used during the day, or at night (…obviously).  It’s a fairly thick textured cream, but it spreads nicely and leaves skin looking healthy.  It hydrates well and contains a selection of good natural ingredients. The third ingredient is Centella Asiatica extract, or gotu kola extract.  This…
