A Powder Sunscreen That Really Works

Colorscience has a lot going for it (and for your skin), including that fact that it can be applied over makeup.

After a sun-soaked trip to Santa Barbara, I came home to Chicago with a little souvenir: a sunburned nose. I know, poor me. But since I’m not too keen on that happening again, I’ve decided it’s time to invest in quality sun protection.

Colorscience makes powder sunscreens with broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection in self-dispensing brush bottles that can be stashed in your handbag for quick touch-ups throughout the day. The tinted mineral formula gives a sheer coverage, which means you can apply (and reapply) it right over makeup. The initial purchase is steep ($50), but refills are just $23.
