This week was started with a gorgeous lunch at Serafina here in Manhattan and a chance to meet the lovely cosmetics pioneer Jane Iredale as she made an announcement: five of her products recently received the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Approval for their safety and efficacy against UV rays.
While we stayed shielded from the blazing sun of the summer solstice (the longest day of the year and by far one of the hottest we’ve seen in Manhattan in a while), she told us about her passion for her products and her concern about women wearing the right sun protection. Want to know what you should have on your vanity to protect not only your look but your overall health? Check out these approved products:
PurePressed Base Pressed Mineral Powder with SPF 20 ($49.50) -The perfect lightweight base for even the most sensitive skin, it goes on beautifully and leaves a flawless finish that gives everyone a luminous complexion.
PowderMe Dry Sunscreen in SPF 30 ($44) – One of Jane’s own favorite products, this dry sunscreen goes on as a translucent powder that’s barely noticeable once it’s applied and it WORKS. Ladies, use this everywhere that the sun will hit you but also keep it as a secret weapon for park-bound kids and husbands who forget to pack their sunscreen.
Amazing Base Loose Mineral Finish Powder with SPF 20 ($31) – Worn under or over the mineral bases, it contains rice powder to absorb oil all day.
Dream Tint Moisturizing Tint with SPF 15 ($36) – For those of us who like tinted moisturizer a bit more than powder (or for those who like a little of both), this amazing product absorbs oil while it maintains the moisture level of the skin. Rather genius and it also has a flawless finish that minimizes pores.
LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15 ($11.60) – A fantastic lip balm with UVA/UVB protection from edible zinc oxide and incredible moisturizing properties from luscious macadamia nut oil. This is a perfect lip product for the beach and/or pool or, you know, anywhere.
It’s summertime, which means being beautiful also means being smart. Throw these Jane Iredale mineral-makeup-with-sunscreen staples into your makeup bag and feel confident, protect and, well of course, gorgeous.
