I think I already know the answer to this one, but curiosity gets the better of me all the time, as you well know by now.
Many liquid foundations now sport SPF of at least 30 and up. Generally, the higher the SPF level, the thicker the formula which is why we don’t see many makeup bases that have very high SPF levels. The exception is with Japanese makeup because they’ve managed to give us light textured sunscreen with high SPF ratings. As for BB Cream, SPF50 is quite common. They are supposed to be “all in one” products after all, catering also for sun protection while giving you colour coverage. You may also realise that BB Creams come in a thicker formula, which can partly be attributed to this higher SPF.
So, I’m curious. With all the high SPF base products out there already available to us, do you wear a separate sunscreen? Or are you rejoicing in the fact that the high SPF in your foundation or BB Cream allows you to get away with wearing one less layer of product on your skin?
