Your barrier to the sun… the right one matters

Your barrier to the sun… the right one matters

As I continue my outdoor exercise, as I have for the last 10 years, I have noticed an increase in walkers, bikers, speed-walkers, dog-walkers, children-walkers and runners in the last month. There are so many more people trying to get out of the house during this pandemic. We are all doing the same thing, escaping the walls that are becoming boring. Then would it be true that I am not the only one who is searching for sunscreen that I can wear for my outdoor activity?


I don’t know about you, but I need something I love or I won’t use it. That means sunscreen that lasts, doesn’t feel like a gross overlay and that I enjoy putting on. Wait. What?! Enjoy putting on? That doesn’t exist in sunscreens. OH YES IT DOES! Probably the single most skeptic-challenging product I have used by AlumierMD so far, is the Sheer Hydration sunscreen in versatile tint.


I have dry skin so I need all the moisture I can get. I am also a makeup wearer, so it must work under makeup. What if it makes an excellent primer? Hold on, this is too good to be true. This product makes me feel good about not wearing makeup on days there is no point, like now! It gives me confidence to go without foundation because it is dewy like we want our skin to look after makeup application and has a unique versatile tint that gives me some glow. Under makeup, it acts like an illuminating primer. And secret alert! I never used primers anyways as a makeup artist so this is a just a bonus.

I am not going to lecture you on wearing sunscreen, not here. I am however going to give you reasons this is an A+ sunscreen. This lotion gives the feeling of a treatment, making you completely forget it is even a sunscreen – think of it as a tinted moisturizer. Sheer Hydration also comes without tint. It provides you lasting moisture and has an SPF of 40. It is a physical blocking agent, meaning it does not disrupt your skin’s biochemistry like chemical sunscreen agents. It is formulated free from parabens and sulfates. Just apply, add some pressed powder and your skin is perfectly ready for the day, no matter what comes your way.


Sheer Hydration versatile tint is the last step in my morning skincare routine and is my favourite step (as well as EverActive C&E + peptides, these products have equal amount of love from me). Sheer Hydration seals the look I am forever trying to achieve; a dewy, sun-kissed, long-lasting and non-sticky look. This is a product so good; I have hand selected it as the finishing touch to the Cali Lift technique, my trademark service for injectables. A full-size bottle of this exact product comes free ($48CAD value) with every Cali Lift service. I do it because it enhances my service. I truly never thought I would say a sunscreen would enhance my injectable treatment, but it does. It is the finishing product to a Californian finish where everyone is just slightly dewy and sun-kissed.

When I was told AlumierMD sunscreens were superior to others on the market, I rolled my eyes (on the inside, that’s rude), but I apologize. This is the truth. For those with naturally oily skin, consider Clear Matte. Clear Matte is a game changer. It comes in a several tints, in addition to non-tinted. All have an SPF of 40 or higher.


To everyone out there in need of a sunscreen, please visit AlumierMD.ca and consult with me to find the right sunscreen for you. I will then provide you my clinic code to order yours right to your door, free shipping, no order minimum. Happy sunning!
