Are You Too Lazy For SPF? Not Anymore . . .

If you're forgetful when it comes to applying sunscreen, here's a simple way to get a little bit of protection: wash up. These days, sunscreen comes in cleanser form, leaving an invisible shield on your skin after you wash the soap off. And while it doesn't offer maximum shield from the sun, it's better than nothing.

The latest of these products to catch my eye is the Betheseda sunscreen soap ($8). Like St. Ives Elements Protective Cleanser, it provides SPF 10 protection, but in bar-soap form. What's notable, though, is the company's "Melanie Policy," named in honor of the founder's sister, who is battling colon and liver cancer. Bethesda is giving away a free bar of the soap to anybody who is fighting cancer or knows someone who has the disease. Generous — and good karma, too.

Seems like a really smart idea. Would people rely too much on it though to give them sun protection? Maybe.

Hmmm, this is a neat idea. I wonder how much spf it really leaves on your skin?

What a fantastic idea, it is about time someone came up with an SPF product like this! I hate applying SPF lotion before I have to go out in the sun (I mean I do do it, but who doesn't secretly resent it)...and although this soap isn't a full sunscreen substitute, it sure would help! I need to pick up a bar for this summer ASAP! Thanks for the post!
