I'll admit it: I am guilty of not using sunscreen when I was younger. When I was in high school, my friends and I would literally grab a bottle of baby oil and go bake in the sun for hours. In fact, I'm pretty certain we used Crisco oil one time. I feel like we'd get arrested for doing that nowadays. And yes, I'm horrified that I spent all of high school and college doing stupid sh*t like that. My dad got on me all the time, asking if I'd applied any of his SPF 30. Ew. Why would I ever apply that white stuff that shields the sun? So I'd lie and say yes, and then be on my merry way with my dark tanning oil. I needed the best tan ever and it was the only thing I thought would work.
I wear sunscreen religiously now–even though I don't love the way it feels. And I've learned that you can get a really nice sun-kissed glow with SPF. I was browsing through Target last week and noticed this sunscreen oil with SPF 50 from L'Oreal. It immediately made me think back to my dumber younger years, so I bought it. It smells incredible, isn't greasy and just so happens to be super nostalgic to me. And although I was scared I might fry in the sun and start looking like Tan Mom, it did indeed protect. If only this would have been around 15 years ago. But seriously, if you hate the idea of slathering on white sunscreen, you should check out this amazing new product:
L'Oreal Sublime Sun Sheer Protect SPF 50 Sunscreen Oil Spray ($8.24)
