By now, you probably look to sunscreen as the little black dress of your beauty bag. You can wear it with anything — and, unlike its sartorial counterpart, it has plenty of vital health benefits. But, what if you could upgrade that staple into something with a little more pizzazz? Something that, say, smells like birthday cake and glitters like a disco ball? If we have your attention, read on.
For the flashiest of beach babes, whimsical brand Sunshine & Glitter just put out its Sea Star Sparkle SPF 50 Sunscreen. (Try saying that five times fast!) The product is infused with glitter, so when it smooths onto your skin it gives you a sheen that will let you "be a mermaid daily," as the brand puts it.
Make that a skincare-savvy mermaid, we might add. The sunscreen helps shield against UVA/UVB rays, is free of parabens, and comes enriched with antioxidants like green tea extract and Vitamin E.
But, onto that birthday cake thing. The 'screen comes in three scents and colors. The "Party Cake" variety comes with rainbow glitter; the "Mango Tango" sunscreen is flecked with gold sparkles; and the "Very Berry" is all about the pink glow.
Serious glitter fans should also know that Sunshine & Glitter makes bug repellent that shimmers, too ... and it's called "Glamour Camper." What will sparkle lovers think of next?
