BzzAgent: Coppertone ClearlySheer For Sunny Days Sunscreen Body Lotion #Review #Coppertone

IMAG1114

I know we need it and this is why I use it, but I don’t have to like it. This has been my attitude towards SPF anything in the past. I even apply the shot glass worth to my face and try not to make faces while doing it. I tell myself while applying where I don’t need it as the sun won’t be seeing this or that, in hopes I can talk myself down from continuing to achieve a oily but white chalky look for the sake of protection. I have also opted in just not going out because I did not feel like being greasy that day.  Staying indoors while the birds and squirrels tease me by having feathers and fur is not my ideal way of spending Summer.  Having a pool means even the water taunts me in coming out but “lobster girl” is not something I desire and last I checked, not exactly in the hot looks for 2014!

In comes Coppertone’s new solution for “SPF Frightened” people like me. CLEARLYSheer’s formula allows the user to still be protected with their SPF 30 and SPF 50 formulas, but minus the I bathe in milk look. Your skin remains your own color tone, plus the formula is non-irritating. Friendly to acne, but in the way like it does not clog your pores or cause any breakouts. You have a sheer finish that moisturizes but is not heavy. Yet you can play for up to 80 minutes in the water before needing to reapply…….I call that living in peace with the sun. The sun does not burn me, so I don’t have to hide from it so beware those that go near me when I’m in the pool, I’m the splashing kind 🙂

BzzAgent: Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen Spray lotion #Review #Coppertone

Coppertone 2

 

It’s hot and the weather started warming quickly in California, as we never really got to experience a real Winter. Yes, the days got overcast but the sky never opened up, thus we are experiencing a severe drought. The sun and protection from it is an all-year-round worry in Southern California, so everyone welcomes a discount or even a free sample.

I was able to test drive the new Coppertone ClearlySheer products, both in lotion and spray lotion form.  You have two formulas and one comes in a blue and white colored bottle for “Beach & Pool” and the other is the yellow bottle, “For Sunny Days”.   Each has it’s own application and I am fond of both because quite simply……I have not burned this Spring or Summer.

I used the Spray formula in both versions and even found the formula  “For Sunny Days” performed well if I had a short dip in the pool.  The spray has a nice application tip that allows even coverage and you can just spray and go.  Great for when the hour comes to reapply for continuing protection.  The sunscreen does not clog pore and dries sheer.  No longer do you have to deal with that white film over your skin that stained clothes, made you look milky and let’s not forget that feeling that your skin can’t breathe.  I did find a residue is left but think of how it feels when you apply coconut oil, your skin still can breathe but the oil does not feel heavy or nasty.

My only Con:

The product is sheer as I mentioned but because of the residue, sand will stick to you if you are at the beach and if you are gardening, dirt and even leaf trimmings may stick on.  An easy flick gets it off but you do get those “dirt creases” in areas like the inside of your wrist or the inside part of your arm, back of the knees….and so forth.  I don’t burn so I think it’s totally worth a little grime that in the end I made and found by doing yard work.

Waxelene: All Natural Petroleum Jelly Alternative #Review

IMAG0493

I have walked by it so many times, passed the Waxelene on the shelf at Bed, Bath & Beyond….that I think the little buzzing bee on their packaging teases me at this point. Thankfully, Waxelene took pity on me, that or the bee reported me for stalking, but nonetheless……I have my own Waxelene tube now.

What is it?
Waxelene is a blend of Organic Soy oil, Beeswax, Natural Vitamin E oil and Organic Rosemary oil. Pretty simple but sometimes the simplest things are the best.

Let’s talk about the day I receive the tube via mail:

I somehow burned my arm taking a bundt pan out of the oven. I would love to say it was when I was pulling the pan out and the mitt was too short but this was plainly me not paying attention. I was using a toothpick to check for doneness and rested my arm against the pan’s edge. I did not feel it until it was too late, and it left a nice slash shaped mark on my arm. I tried ignoring it, but the burn turned into an itch that hurt when scratched. The following day my scar looked like a cat got the best of me! Being that it was where my skin’s arm is the brightest white in color….I was not only upset by my lack of attention so that I was now sporting this boo-boo, but the scar just stood out. For some reason this burn dehydrated my skin in that area so the scar and surrounding tissue had a nice leather skin pattern…..I went from looking like a cat beat me up to then turning 1% lizard. I finally heard the bee from Waxelene buzzing from the box!

I try it and feel relief and realize I’m at day 5 now from my bundt attack. The itch is no longer there and I look less crusty when the Waxelene is applied. You still see the darkness but I left my lizard-like ways in the past. I shower and notice that my lizard-ness is really openings that are cracks, and bleeding a little. Bundt 1, and Me 0! I continue applying the Waxelene and notice a little goes a long way. No residue or odor left behind and it looks matte when rubbed in. By day 9 I am 0% lizard but have a scar that is lifting. I peel like a snake and underneath is a pinkish colored scar but light in color. I apply for 1 week and a half in total and by the last day, I have a very faint mark that just looks like I leaned against something…..very faint in color and barely visible.

I would love to say this was my first time having an oven “oopsie” but let’s say sometimes things attack….like that jumping salmon fillet when my cookie pan (which I no longer own) decided to jump and twist without even being touched. I thought I was a fish catcher and learned that fish fillet pieces are better left where they land than trying to catch to save who knows what. Wish I had Waxelene then. The tube came with a card that lists dozens of uses like-

For:

  • Dry Skin
  • Chapped lips
  • Anti-Chafe
  • Make-Up
  • Diapers (for rashes or as a diaper cream)
  • After-Shave
  • After-Sun
  • Eczema
  • Dry Spots
  • Lengthens Perfume life
  • Hair dye (barrier)
  • Nail polish (barrier) and also un-stick nail polish bottles
  • Tattoos (barrier)
  • Pets (from paws to hot spots)
  • Stops Rust
  • Control wild eyebrows
  • and let’s not forget the new one, “Bundt Pan Attacks”.

Waxelene is also Cruelty-free, made in the U.S.A., free of Hydrogenated oils, free of Sulfates, free of Mineral oils and parabens. An all-natural product that is simple and works. Not greasy and colorless, so you are not left with a shiny residue that you spread around. The Waxelene bee is kind and I recommend you pick up a tube today! You never know when pans jump and attack 🙂

Stalk…..I mean visit the Waxelene Bee at:

You can also find Waxelene at many retailers like Bed, Bath & Beyond, CVS, Whole Foods to Sprout’s Markets and many more.

I received the above product free of charge from Waxelene.  I am not obligated to provide a positive or favorable review, just my honest opinion.  My review is based on my experience with the product and/or brand, which may differ from yours.
