Maelove: Perfect Sunscreen

June 27, 2017

Los Angeles, CA, USA

One of the best skincare practices is applying sufficient sunscreen everyday. Acne has been both a blessing and a curse for me. It helped me learn about how to take better care of my skin outside of just eliminating pimples but also wear proper sunscreen wherever I go. It's a curse because... well, you know, I don't have clear skin! That's okay though. From the many years I've had acne, I've learned to improve the integrity of my skin through daily sun protection, moisture and renewal.

Along with all the benefits of sun protection such as preventing skin cancer and premature aging, there's a down side of wearing sunscreen (I mean, how could it be!). 70% of women don't use sunscreen daily because they either hate the sticky feel (mineral sunscreens) or the petroleum derived active ingredients (chemical sunscreens). I completely understand especially since we get all hot and sweaty out in the sun.... and who wants a sticky face on top of that?

To solve this problem, Maelove, a brand new skincare line launching summer 2017, has invented The Sun Protector, a mineral (18% zinc oxide) sunscreen that is as light and smooth as chemical sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 protection. One amazing fact is that Maelove was born at MIT, developed in SiliconValley and made in the USA (Maelove is named after two famous women scientists, was developed in Silicon Valley by the MIT engineers behind the successful men's skin care line Mavericks. Just fabulous!).

I learned that The Sun Protector is a 100% mineral sunscreen for your face. The best thing about this product is that it works as a makeup primer. For someone with acne and scarring issues, I'm obsessed with how smoothly it preps my face for makeup!

Being one of the first to try Maelove, I'm beyond excited to find the perfect sunscreen for my everyday. With or without makeup, my face feels protected from the harmful UV-rays that would damage my skin. If you head over to Maelove's web site, you'll receive 15% off your first order plus, the Sun Protector comes with free shipping and is at a steal of $29.99 a piece (insane!). This product could easily go for higher figures given some of the high-quality ingredients:
18% Zinc Oxide Formula // provides your skin with complete defense against UVA and UVB rays. Non-nano particles are used so it will stay on your skin, instead of getting absorbed into your skin.

Ideal for Sensitive Skin
// free of oxybenzone, avobenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, fragrances and dyes. Non-comedogenic and hypo-allergenic. PETA-certified cruelty-free and vegan.

Fortified with Antioxidants // you can never have enough protection against free-radicals, so we fortified The Sun Protector with potent antioxidants Vitamins C and E.

Primes Your Skin // smooths and perfects while it protects. This makes it the perfect morning beauty ritual, whether or not you’re a makeup junkie. 
Overall, I highly recommend Maelove to everybody. I swear by their sunscreen and I don't leave the house without it. Not only it helps me protect against the sun, it also improves the uneven texture of my skin. I feel more confident using it especially since it won't clog my pores or cause more acne, phew! But if you're new to using sunscreen (which you shouldn't be!), I would definitely give Maelove a shot.
