What NOT To Buy: NV Perricone MD's Sunscreen

What NOT To Buy: NV Perricone MD's Sunscreen

We are starting a new segment on FABSUGAR, it's called What Not To Buy. Our first entry will be NV Perricone MD's Solar Protection for Body with DMAE/SPF 15 Sunscreen. This stuff was pretty gross when I used it the other day at the beach. Not only did it flake on my skin, but it wouldn't blend very well and it left thick and goopy white streaks all over me.

Also, when I took a shower later that afternoon it was very difficult to get off. You know that grimy residue that you feel if you've even put Vaseline on your body (no, I'm not kinky, it was an experiment with a dry patch)? Well, that's what it felt like. I had to soap up with exfoliating gloves to finally feel clean. Consider yourself warned.

Avon has great sunscreen that goes on real smooth and is not icky and sticky. It also can double as a bug repellent!

I remember I posted on a DearSugar a while back about spider veins...and from what I've heard from numerous people is that Perricone's spider vein treatment is awesome...but that sunscreen sounds icky.

This is a great segment - Perricone stuff is way to expensive to buy a product that doesn't work! Thanks for the tip :)
