The Lede: Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion

Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion

In a country where winter lasts eight months, spring and summer are practically an extended national holiday. I don’t take blue skies for granted, which is exactly why I take sun protection so seriously.

For years, I employed Clinique’s City Block Sheer as my go-to summer facial moisturizer. The one-two hydrator went on super dry and offered just enough UV protection to grab a bite outdoors without the fear of burning. Then, tragedy struck: for the life of me, I simply couldn’t find it anymore. Enter Neutrogena’s Triple Protect Face Lotion. By chance, I received a tube of it in a race kit. (Funny how that works out, right?) The formula’s not quite as dry as Clinique’s, but it certainly lives up to its claims of being light and non-greasy. The SPF saves my skin from the bracing brilliance of Toronto skyscrapers on a cloudless day (never to be underestimated), and the dose of moisture keeps my mug nice and fresh. As an added bonus, it helps soothe razor burn, too. Needless to say, I stocked up.

Now, if you’d excuse me, there remain exactly 135 days of patio beer weather. I aim to make them count.

Tune into The Lede, where I write about fashion finds and other stuff that interests me.

Spring thing. 🌻 #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #menswear #mensfashion #fashion #style #styleblogger #mensstyle #spring #outfit #outfitpost This saison was wild. #mabrasserie #craftbeer #beer #instabeer #beer #montreal #artofbeer Sharing the love of running. Proud of @stonerdaman for completing his first 3K time trial! 💪 #thesweatlifeTO #morethanmiles #waterfront10k #runthesix #runTO #running "Camping." 🔥 We built an entire tent complex with a trailer, tarps and a 500-pound steel stove from an old chalet. #bachelorparty #thisisathing Funny thing: I swore off neutrals back when I left retail (black, white and grey were part of my uniform). Look at me now. I'm starting to wear a tie less and less, and opting for functional outfits more and more. Change is good. But I'll never compromise on style. #throwback #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #fashion #menswear #style #mensstyle #mensfashion #styleblogger Hopping on the bandwagon 🌸
