I don’t fall in love easily with a beauty product, but when I do, I want to shout about it from the mountaintops. Most likely that product will become a partner in crime—a friend I seek out when its specialty is needed.
Last spring my friend Sarah Bruemmer and I wandered into Sephora to pick something up. I asked her to show me her favorites in the store. She introduced me to my new love, Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral Powder SPF 45. It comes as a brush with a chamber below filled with this wonderful powder. You just give the brush a tiny tap and the powder appears inside the brush. I’m a klutz, so open containers of mineral powder and I don’t always mesh. This is Paige-proof application. 😉
Here is why I love it: I can apply it over makeup, and it serves its purpose of powdering my face and gives me some sun protection. I use it daily over my face and neck, and I use it year round. Don’t be fooled into thinking you don’t need sun protection living in a city like I do (Seattle). The best thing you can do to fight aging skin is to wear sun protection every day. I really wish I could go back in time to the days I poured on the baby oil and laid on tin foil. I cringe just thinking about the damage I did. Anyway, learning from my mistakes, I think I’m finally getting it right, although I may resemble a ghost while doing so. If you have a favorite product, do share. I love hearing people’s beauty secrets.
