STUFF WE BUY OURSELVES: THE SPF MOISTURIZERS THE EDITORS SWEAR BY

Published by New York - The Strategist by The Editors

If you follow our monthly Strategist haul, then you’re familiar with the idiosyncrasies of our editors’ and writers’ shopping habits. While we think of those as the highlights, there are plenty of other, less glamorous things that we buy — and love — on the regular, too. So whether you’ve wondered about the T-shirts we buy in bulk or the lip balm we hoard, this is the Stuff We Buy Ourselves. First up: the SPF moisturizers (or for some, the moisturizer andthen the sunscreen) we all use.

Maxine Builder, writer:

This sunscreen from Amarte is so lightweight, it comes out of the tube as a liquid, but the finish is almost powdery, not oily or greasy, which I, as a person with acne-prone and often-dehydrated skin, appreciate. And though it’s not marketed as a daily moisturizer, it’s got lots of the benefits of one, including hyaluronic acid and protection from free radicals and pollutants.

Acacia collagen (ActivExtract®)

Acacia collagen is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless dried extract from the stem of the acacia tree grown in Africa, the Near East, India, and the southern United States. Widely used for over 4,000 years as a soothing and anti-inflammatory agent and a product thickening agent, Acacia collagen dissolves rapidly in water and is typically included in products recommended for dry, sensitive or delicate skin.
