bareMinerals SPF 30 natural Sunscreen

This is one of the greatest sunscreen products I have tried. I wasn’t quite sure what to think at first of a powder sunblock. Would it work? Is it even on? This weekend I tried bareMinerals SPF 30 Natural Sunscreen for all my outdoor activities  a long bike ride, day at the beach and some serious yard work.

It was a cinch to apply to my face, chest and arms and it felt really light, a far cry from the heavy greasy sunscreens. Why is this one of the greatest sunscreen? Simply, it works the days I use this I didn’t get burnt, its easier to apply without missing spots and it NEVER runs into my eyes.  I would have never guessed that powder sunscreen could be this great but no matter what the activity I was doing or how sweaty I was bareMinerals SPF30 Natural Sunscreen kept my skin protected.
