My New Favorite Sunscreen

Allow me to introduce you to my latest skincare discovery: the DRMTLGY Day Dream Sunscreen & Face Moisturizer with SPF 40. This product has quickly risen to the top of my list as my preferred sunscreen for daily wear. Its unique formulation strikes the perfect balance between sun protection and hydration, leaving my skin feeling nourished and shielded from harmful UV rays. The lightweight texture effortlessly blends into my skin, offering a comfortable and non-greasy finish that’s ideal for everyday use.

Not only does DRMTLGY Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 46 provide high-level sun protection with SPF 46, but it also offers a subtle tint that evens out my skin tone and provides a natural, radiant glow. What sets it apart is its anti-aging properties, packed with potent antioxidants and peptides that work to combat signs of aging while keeping my skin hydrated throughout the day. Whether I’m running errands or spending a day outdoors, this tinted moisturizer has become my go-to for effortlessly flawless skin with added protection against sun damage.

The DRMTLGY Anti-Aging Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 46 is great, but it is thin. So, if you want an SPF that looks like a foundation with pretty good coverage, you’ll want to try this. My daughter ordered this and sent it to my house. Big mistake on her part. Lol! I took this with me to the beach, and I wore it everywhere. I looked like I had a tan while being protected from the sun. She ordered 34C, but that was a touch dark for me, so I ordered the 32N for myself.

  1. I’ve been using Drmtlgy Universal Sunscreen for about 2 years now and I love it. For day to day, it’s all I put on my face, add a little more color to cheeks if I’m going out for dinner. It leaves a great dewy glow, not heavy, and I can attest to the SPF coverage….i live at the beach!

  2. My dermatologist recommends CeraVe and it seems to work great and is reasonably priced. Can’t wait for your swimsuit post.

  3. sue koren says:

    I need to try some of these!

  4. sue koren says:

    Can’t wait to see all the bathing suits!

  5. Love the swimsuit post!

  6. Karen Wright says:

    Thank you so much for introducing me to the LaRoche Posey brand. I first tried the lotion and am working my way through their other products. Love your daily posts. Keep up the great work!

  7. Thanks for the reminder to use sunscreen and showing us the different types. Your story is too funny. You’re brave too.

  8. Thank you for posting about sunscreens! We are headed to the beach next week and I will certainly need one of these!

  9. Pat Tenuta says:

    I love Rodan+Fields Face and Body Sunscreen SPF 50, and wear their facial moisturizers with SPF everyday!!

  10. I like sunscreen that’s has zinc that’s not white. I also like mineral sunscreen. I never know when my eczema might flare up so I avoid chemicals as much as I can.

  11. Kerri White says:

    I love and use LA Roche-Posay facial cleanser and moisturizer and was pleased to see their sunscreen on your list of favorites. Just ordered some, thank you

  12. The thought of the swimsuit try on cracks me up! Great post!!! Happy Tuesday❤❤❤

  13. About 6 weeks ago I changed my entire skincare regimen over to DRMTLGY and am seeing results. The tinted moisturizer with sunscreen is wonderful. I have a few age spots that need extra coverage so will use a light foundation over the moisturizer. I also use the night cream, the serum and cleanser.
    I am very happy with their products.

  14. I use the Cera Ve sunscreen every day. I love it.

  15. I can only imagine what people thought seeing you pose and take pictures in different swimsuits. I think I’d have come over and chatted with you. So funny to think the one had to talk to the security guard. Lol. Anyway, thanks for the information on different sunscreens. I need to be better about using it. Some of the stick versions would be easy to use.

  16. I wanna try that glow cream. These are great product choices!! See a couple I wanna try!

  17. So happy to see you recommending the Drmtlgy products. They are all worth trying. I have been using the Universal SPF moisturizer in place of foundation for a couple years now and will never go back to wearing heavy foundation. The best part is not having to match a tint since it works on everyone.

    Thanks for all you do for your Gurls….. obviously the one by the pool was not one of your Gurls… you need to hand out business cards when folks are watching 👀. They will quickly become fans of yours.

    1. Lol! I never thought about handing out business cards. Hahaha

  18. Susan Mckenzie says:

    These all seem like great products— I would really like to try the stick type application— anything quick and easy is a win for me!!

  19. Do you recommend a spray on sunscreen?

    1. I rarely use them, but that’s just because I don’t like to overspray people. And, it feels like so much of the product blows away. Lol!

  20. I have some of the Dermatology products and they’re very nice

  21. I do use Cerave but I’d like to try the supergoop shimmer one.
