My sunscreen crush du jour, Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22, is really expensive, but let me explain.
Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22 costs one hundred and thirty eight American dollars. Yep, nearly $140 for a sunscreen. But hold up a minute. The bottle is approximately 4.2 0z. So, in applying some basic math to the situation, the cost breaks down to about $33 per ounce. And when I survey my beauty closet and check the labels on my mass-tige and department store sunscreens, most are an ounce in size and most range in cost from $25-$55. So, when you look at it like that — Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22 isn’t really all that expensive, right? Right!
It used to go down in the DM’s, but now it goes down in my IG stories Currently over there discussing my super expensive sunscreen crush du jour @cledepeaubeauteus…it has me deciding between it and Phoebe’s tuition. LOL, check it out. And coincidentally, the bottle matches my Rodarte inspired nails, by the phenomenal @luxebytracylee
The sticker shock is ‘ouch’ like a mutha! I must admit. But the formula, coverage and seamless blend (with no stickiness or residue) = mind blown! I’ve been allover Instagram Stories and Snapchat showing off just how much I love this sunscreen. And I love that so many of you are sending me direct messages threatening to block me because I’ve MADE you buy a $140 sunscreen. LOL! Let’s be real — ain’t nobody blocking nobody. Why? Because y’all love me and y’all know I speak the truth and drop the skin care gems. *group hug*
And here are a few more reasons to love Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22: The sunscreen contains Illuminating Complex EX, a proprietary cocktail of moisturizing and retexturizing ingredients that help to lessen the presence of environmental damage and reduce the look of dullness — which explains why my skin is so darn glowy when I wear it. A broad spectrum sunscreen, Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22 works to protect skin against harm caused by evil UV rays. Think: lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation.
Does Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22 make sense for your lifestyle? If you’re typically a $10 sunscreen girl — probably not. Also, if you’re totally happy with your current sunscreen situation, stick with it. But if you’re like me, and your sunscreen typically runs about $20-30 an ounce….Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22 is worth exploring. When asked: “Felicia, what’s the best sunscreen out there?” I always respond, “It’s the one you actually wear.” Meaning, if you’re not wearing it (because it’s tacky sticky, looks ghostly) then it’s definitely not going to work for you…regardless of the cost. The best sunscreen is the one that you will love to wear. And I can promise you, you’ll love the texture, absorption and comfort of Clé de Peau Beauté Protective Fortifying Emulsion SPF 22.
Let me know if you try it. Would love your feedback…
