Even if you think you are wary of your SPF application, there are some tricky areas that are easily negligible (burnt hands and any hairline?!), but there's an area where you're probably not even on your radar: your eyelids. And as we reported last summer, while eyelid cancer is rare (it accounts for only 10 percent of all facial skin cancers), it can be fatal if ignored after dermis to mention that the delicate skin around the eyes is one of the first places in which aging shows.
Therefore, Supergoop has decided to market Shimmershade SPF 30 (Buy It, $ 24, nordstrom.com), the first eye shadow made with SPF.
This is also the first push of the popular suntan brand for colors ̵
The special feature of these shades is that they are easily traded into your summer beauty routine can. The long-lasting cream formula glides seamlessly on the eyelids without wrinkling, flaking off or fading. So you do not have to sacrifice if you exchange your usual shadow. As the name suggests, Shimmershade comes in four shimmering, gold-neutral tones that can be worn solo or as a base for other shadows. They are also free of parabens, synthetic fragrance and oxybenzone and are therefore a good choice for anyone who is switching to a clean beauty routine.
In addition to the natural, mineral SPF protection, the shadows also provide good protection for all. Ingredients of the skin, including a blend of rose to combat free radical damage, chamomile to soothe the eye area and vitamin E-rich sunflower to moisturize.
