Coppertone Clearly Sheer Sunscreen Review + Giveaway

If you’re looking for budget friendly sun protection, look no further. The Coppertone Clearly Sheer sunscreen line is a great option. For review consideration, Bzz Agent sent me free samples of two types of this sunscreen: Coppertone Clearly Sheer for Sunny Days and Coppertone Sunscreen Continuous Spray. 

According to Coppertone, the Clearly Sheer Sunscreen line has the following benefits:

  • It absorbs in seconds for a clean and light feel.
  • It has a moisturizing formula that leaves your skin soft and smooth.
  • It won’t clog pores or cause breakouts (clinically tested on acne-prone skin).
  • It has a matte finish that is perfect for use under makeup.

Over the last 6-weeks, I tested out both sunscreens and here’s my full review below.

DSCN0366

Here, I’m wearing Coppertone Clearly Sheer on my hands and body and it is completely undetectable.

Pros:

+Can be found a most common shopping venues, i.e. Target, Ulta, Walmart.

+It is budget friendly. You can purchase for under $10. If you use the Bzz Agent coupon, it can be purchased for about $8.00 and some change (including tax). However, if you purchase at Ulta, you can use their $3.50 coupon and pay under $8.00 with taxes included.

+The product (Coppertone Clearly Sheer for Sunny Days) does what it says:

  1. It did not make my acne worse.
  2. It can be used under makeup without complication;  I had no problems using it with my Becca primer. 
  3. It is absolutely sheer and easy to blend into the skin. If you have a deeper complexion, like me, you’ll have zero problems with this sunscreen white casting on your skin. 
  4. My skin felt soft and smooth after use.

+Both types of Coppertone sunscreens were easy to use for the body, but I preferred the continuous spray version because I could spray it quickly and easily.

+Both types of Coppertone sunscreens are person of color friendly. I did not have to excessively work to blend in the sunscreen. It was so easy to use, I did not even need a mirror. There was absolutely no white casting on my skin and it dried matte.

+The Coppertone Clearly Sheer for Sunny Days has a very light and fresh fragrance and it didn’t smell like sunscreen at all.

Cons:

-Unfortunately, the fragrance in the product made my eyes water initially. That’s only thing keeping it from being a 5 star product.

Results:

4-stars

If Coppertone were to develop a fragrance free version, Coppertone Clearly Sheer for Sunny Days would be my go to everyday sunscreen. I really loved using this product and 5 ounces of product for under $10.00 is a great deal when my typical everyday facial sunscreen (Coola) is $36.00 for 1.7 ounces. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quality sunscreen at a drugstore price. However, I would caution anyone with sensitivity to fragrances

A Winter Skincare Solution

20140104-142328.jpg

Let’s face it. Winter is rough on skin, but the dry air is even more dangerous is you have a tendency to have dry skin and/or have other skin conditions. Although I have an oily face, my skin otherwise is dry as the Southwest desert I live in. On top of that, I have eczema. Needless to say, winter makes my skin dry, patchy, and sometimes unbearably itchy.

Since I had a major eczema flare last summer, I’ve been working at keeping my skin better hydrated and flare free. To do that, it’s important to regularly exfoliate my skin with gentle products. Exfoliating gets rid of dead skin and helps the skincare products you use to work better.  

One of my favorite products to use is Treehut’s Shea Sugar Body Scrub. I love…love…love this. Treehut Shea Sugar Body Scrub is simply amazing. If you’re trying to get rid of dry, itchy winter skin, you gotta try this. (I keep backups of this product on hand at all times.)

I use the original Treehut Sugar Body Scrub and try to stay away from the other versions that are more heavily fragranced. The original body scrub has a light shea fragrance that doesn’t irritate my skin  or linger after use. I typically use this sugar scrub at least once a week. (I’m still struggling to stay on schedule with this.)  When used with gentle pressure, this is a great body exfoliator. After use, my skin always feels buttery smooth and hydrated. (By the way, I don’t use salt scrubs because they have a tendency to really dry my skin out.)  

Tips:

  1. The best way to use this scrub is in the shower or bathtub because it can be quite messy. Also, be sure to use a safety bath mat so that you don’t slip. 
  2. Do not use this product on your face.
  3. This body scrub also works great for hands to get rid of rough dry patches.
  4. Try the original version of this product if you are more sensitive to fragranced products.
  5. Use gentle pressure when using this product to avoid skin damage.
  6. Rinse thoroughly. (You’d be surprised how persistent some of the sugar granules are at sticking to wet skin.)
  7. Newly exfoliated skin makes it easier for your body oils, creams, and lotions to lock in necessary moisture.

So, comment below if you’ve tried Treehut’s Sugar Body Scrub or if you’ve discovered a better and more hydrating body exfoliator.  I’d love your feedback. 🙂

*Currently, Ulta has this body scrub on sale buy 2 get 1 free in their printed advertisement. However, online, Ulta is selling Treehut products buy one get one 50% off on their online site. Usually, a jar of this scrub retails for $7.49, but the cost may vary at your local Ulta. Either way, you can use Ulta’s $3.50 coupon to get a really great deal.
