Its Summertime and it is hot. especially here in Texas. Gahh its like burning outside. even though I like Summer for my Birthday and all, it is Quite annoying with the Heat. SO bad that I just want Fall to come. geez what kind of heat is this? Its like an oven out there! whenever I go out I rush into the car and put on the AC its just so unbearable!! I’m so glad my parents finally agreed to have the AC on 24/7!
well since its hot and bright and sunny etc…I don’t plan on going to any beaches or pool (at least during the day…I don’t care if I'm half Nekkid) I hate hot weather……….I’d rather it be mildly cold lol BUT for those who love the heat…remember sunscreen is an essential thing regardless of what amount of melanin you genetically possess. SO I purchased some new Sunscreen, Neutrogena of course!
On to the review

What I love about these Sunscreens is that they both protect from UVA and UVB rays
UVR from the sun is subdivided in three bands:

FOR ME I am Medium, but sensitive (Type IV- I do burn (by burn I mean it hurts ouch) but I tan very nicely), so I go with the sensitive chart. Looking at these chart, you can see that even the darkest of dark people, still need a little sunscreen if they are going to be out for over an hour or two (just a little less than those who are fair).
Thanks for reading!
