New York - The Strategist
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.
