Sweet summertime is finally here and like most people, the Certified Fabulous team is ready to get outside and enjoy the every bit of the beautiful weather that we can. Protecting your skin from the sun is very important as it may prevent dark spots, premature aging, and more importantly skin cancer. Because of this, we have been very busy putting many SPF products to the test to find out which ones meet all of our standards and would make a great go-to option for our readers. After much research, testing, and a lot of sunbathing, we have narrowed it down to a few different products that we all agree are our favorites. 

  • Olay Total Effects Feather Weight Moisturizer $17.99 

    & Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening & Protecting Lotion with SPF 15 $25.99

    Olay Total Effects entire line is wonderful, but the Feather Weight Moisturizer SPF 15 is an essential for everyday skin care. This moisturizer makes a great lightweight primer for your face and can be applied alone or worn under makeup. It applies smoothly and feels hydrating immediately but also absorbs quickly leaving your skin moisturized and healthy without leaving a greasy residue. The Feather Weight Moisturizer provides seven benefits to your face, including plumping wrinkles and fine lines, brightening as well as evening skin tone, diminishing the appearance of pores, lightening dark spots, enhancing skins elasticity, and restoring moisture. If used as part of your daily routine, not only are you protecting your skin from aging and further sun damage, you are also helping to heal prior damage that may have already happened. If you already have some dark spots the Olay Regenerist Luminous brightening & protecting lotion with sunscreen is a wonderful moisturizer to use with the added protection of SPF 15 which provides UVA and UVB protection to help prevent early aging. This moisturizer is designed to visibly fade the look of dark spots for a more even skin tone.
  • Bioelements Sun Diffusing Protector SPF 15 $41.00

    & Bioelements SPF 50 FaceScreen $53.50

    bioelementsspfimageAnother product that stood out to many of us is the Bioelements Sun Diffusing Protector and FaceScreen SPF 50. These sunscreens are both designed to protect from both UVA and UVB rays to give skin full protection from harmful rays. With the higher SPF in the FaceScreen, it is an ideal option if you are spending time outside and want to keep your face protected and healthy. "After applying this moisturizer and then sitting in the sun all day, my skin was left looking glowing and tanned, without any redness or tenderness" – Certified Fabulous Team member Heather. Keep in mind that it is always good to reapply SPF throughout the day.
  • HydroPeptide Solar Defense SPF 30 $44.00

    HydroPeptide Solar Defense SPF 30 is a skin tone adjusting, moisturizing, facial sunscreen. Made with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, HydroPeptide is a physical barrier sunscreen, meaning that the formula actually creates a physical barrier between sun rays and your skin to protect from burning as well as keeping the heat out of the skin. This is another great option if you have any sort of skin sensitivity or inflammation. Ingredients such as acai, green tea, and aloe make-up this nutrient rich sun block helping to seal moisture into your face leaving a matte finish without any oily residue. The combination of ingredients give the lotion a nice scent and doesn't smell like the typical chemical filled sunblock, it is actually pleasant smelling. One of our favorite benefits of the HydroPeptide is that when applied to your face, it "self-adjusts" to the color of your skin tone. This Solor Defense will also reduce the look of blotchy redness and can take the place of wearing a foundation. The blend of ingredients helps to fight off acne and minimize the premature signs of aging all while protecting your skin from the harmful sun rays.

Summer is here again and that can only mean one thing, Sunscreen! With the days getting longer and the sun getting brighter we tend to spend a lot more time outside in the sun, and you don't want to forget to protect your skin. The best way to protect yourself from strong UV rays is by applying sunscreen to any exposed areas and be sure to repeat. There are two different kinds of sun screens that are hitting the headlines with much debate: Chemical and Physical. The Certified FABULOUS team has made it our mission to test many different brands out there and we wanted to give you some nice examples of physical sunscreens and chemical sunscreens. Here is what our team has found:physicalspf


Physical sunscreens work by deflecting the UV rays off of the skin by using all natural ingredients such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Typically, physical sunscreens are not absorbed through the skin, do not irritate the skin, and do not cause allergies.

Physical Sunscreens
All Good Sport $15.99
All Good Sport Stick $7.99
Everywhere $35.00

I would be willing to bet that sunblock is one of the most neglected steps in everyone’s daily skin care routine. Now I don’t have any statistics on it, but from my own experience, I can tell you it is absolutely neglected. I never feel prettier than when I have a nice glowing tan, but I have to constantly remind myself that I will not be feeling so pretty when I am covered in wrinkles and sun spots. This summer I am going to commit to wearing sunblock on my face. I'm going to load my face up with antioxidants, moisture, and healing benefits that so many sunscreens are made with. We at Certified FABULOUS have reviewed some great sunscreens made specifically for the delicate facial skin. All of these are wonderful for minimizing the looks of fine lines, preventing further skin damage, and keep our faces from aging before our time. All of the products listed protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Protect by Honor MD, Sun Visor by Goldfaden MD, Bioelements FaceScreen, and HydroPeptide Solar Defense are four great products that will help you keep your skin safe and well cared for during any of your summer adventures.

  • honormdspf
    Protect by Honor MD is a SPF 20 moisturizer that would be great for everyday use. This feels more like a moisturizer than a sunblock. Protect has a nice light smell that leaves only a faint and refreshing scent behind. It absorbs into your skin quickly and doesn't leave behind a greasy residue at all. Protect is made as an anti-aging product and reduces the formation of wrinkles on your skin and face.
  • SPF-Face3
    Sun Visor made by Goldfaden MD Skincare is an oil and fragrance free sunscreen. Sun Visor is a wonderful sunblock to use daily on your face because it is said to prevent sun damage that leads to fine lines as well as dark spots, and is made with organic red tea which is full of antioxidants that your skin needs. Sun Visor is made oil-free and blends into your skin nicely and leaves your face feeling ultra-moisturized with only a light coverage. Another great feature about Sun Visor is that its main ingredients are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which means that it the sunblock creates an actual physical barrier between the UVA/UVB rays, and your skin. This is perfect for anyone trying to steer clear of certain chemicals or are looking for this type of protection.
  • hydropsolardefense
    HydroPeptide Solar Defense is another physical barrier sunblock. Made with Green Tea, Acai, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, Solar Defense smells great and is also loaded with great antioxidants for your skin. HydroPeptide Solar Defense offers long lasting hydration and protection for your skin to keep your skin from aging prematurely, without making your face look or feel oily. HydroPeptide Solar Defense is SPF 30 and is also gluten-free, paraben-free, phthalate and sulfate-free.
  • bioelementsspfboth
    If you are looking for a face sunscreen with a higher SPF, Bioelements SPF 50 FaceScreen would be a perfect moisturizer to try. This sunscreen is much thicker, like a night cream, and provides a bit heavier coverage on your face. When applied, it rubs in smoothly, and leaves with you a hydrated, dewy look. Bioelements FaceScreen is made to be non-irritating, non-allergenic and non-sensitizing, which makes it the perfect option for anyone with skin sensitivities or sensitive skin conditions. Bioelements FaceScreen helps to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming due to over exposure to the sun, and helps to decrease the risk of skin cancer and early aging.

bioelements Body cleanserBiolelements Vitalization Rich Intensity Body Cleanser
is formulated with pure essential oils and extracts, known for their ability to smooth and moisturize skin. This body cleanser is beautifully packaged in a  convenient to use flip-top tube which is delightfully housed in a gorgeous outer box. Our first impression of this product was that it was thoughtfully packaged to create a high-end user experience. The simplicity of the packaging’s design appeals to the prestige market consumer. The product retails for $38.00 for 8fl oz.

Biolelements Vitalization Rich Intensity Body Cleanser is a beautiful, creamy cleanser which foams nicely on a body pouf, wash cloth or when applied by hand (we tried this body cleanser each way for this review). Our team described the texture and foaming action of this formula as the following: “silky-soft, creamy lather”, silky and creamy texture, feels very nice and soothing”, “a small amount was all that was needed to create a thick and rich lather”. We all agree that this body cleanser was “non-drying”, and left skin feeling “silky smooth”, “fresh”, “clean” and “moisturized”. The fragrance of this amazing body cleanser was described as “mild”, “natural”, “soothing and calming fragrance” and “wonderful-not too strong”. Our overall experience was extremely positive, our team unanimously agreed we would highly recommend this product to our viewers, and although it is of a Prestige price point for a body cleanser ($20+), we would all invest in this product because of the quality of the experience when using.
Bioelements Extremely emollient
