Three Affordable Summer Skincare: it Cosmetics, Ziaja, Coppertone

it Cosmetics Primer review

it Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Collagen Veil Anti-aging Primer

Prepping your skin well is probably foundation of good skincare. This it Cosmetics serum is not cheap by any means, but you only need a few drops of it at a time, making it a lasting and worthwhile investment. This No. 50 Serum Anti-Aging Collagen Veil Primer is a concentrated hydrating primer and serum infused with anti-aging peptides, collagen, niacin, essential lipid-rich oils, vitamins, extracts and botanicals. I’ve noticed a slight reduction in the appearance of pores after a few days usage. It is actually good for the skin in addition to being a great primer and base for daily makeup. If you’re using a makeup primer that only gives the illusion of a primed face, you’ll have to buy a separate moisturizer or serum to maintain nice skin. For this product, it is a two in one.

Ziaja Goats Milk Skincare

Ziaja Goat’s Milk Skincare Set

You would think that my skin would be less dry in the summer months. Maybe it’s the central air that dries out my skin or my blasé approach to skincare in the warmer weathers, but my skin lacks that moisture and glow that other beach goers often radiate. You have no idea how happy I was to be introduced to Ziaja goat’s milk line. From the Goat’s Milk skincare line, I have tried the Day Cream, Eye Cream, Night Cream, Body Balm, Body Butter and the Milk + Toner.

I am most grateful to this line of skincare due to it’s neutral pH. Most skincare, face washes and even diets are heavily acidic leaning, leaving my skin’s pH imbalanced. The Goat’s Milk Day Cream is my current go to moisturizer. It’s gentle and leaves my skin feeling supple. The best part about Ziaja brand? Everything they sell, from moisturizer to eye cream to toner and face wash is less than $10.

Coppertone Sunscreen for the Faces

Coppertone Sunscreen Lotion for Faces in Sensitive Skin and Oil Free

I have sensitive skin that tends to break out under heavy makeup or lotions and sunscreens. Coppertone has always been my favorite sunscreen brand for both body and face. I’ve slathered the body sunscreens all my face before with little consequences of allergies or breakouts. I think it is for that reason that I tend to lean towards Coppertone when it comes down to grabbing a sunscreen for the beach.

I recently discovered Coppertone Sunscreen for the faces that come in sensitive skin and oil free. Naturally, I am super stoked about them. I am usually comfortable with SPF 15 for the face, but after a case of sunburn last month, I’ve upgraded to at least 30 or 50. I prefer to use the oil free sunscreen on a daily basis as it is lightweight. If I am going to the beach or pool, however, I prefer the sensitive skin Coppertone sunscreen. It lasts a little longer in the water. Regardless, I think both these sunscreens are great choices for summer protection and would work well for anyone who suffers from sensitive skin or are prone to breaking out.

For those of you out there with nice skin, sunscreen also makes a great foundation. My skin has been behaving, but it’s nowhere near perfect, so I’ve been using tinted sunscreen as my summer foundation and it has been working out amazingly! Sunscreen gives an amazing sheen and glow to those with drier skin who don’t mind the shine.
