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.

Know what's #AlwaysClassic? Lazy Sunday walks through the park. Simple, casual style. Warm sunshine on your face. Doesn't get better than that. Thank you @reebokclassicca for the fresh pair of spring sneaks. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #style #menswear #reebokclassic Spring fling. 🌷 #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #style #fashion #menswear #hamont #springtide #styleblogger Was feelin' the love at #LoveLocke. First stop: @delirious_burger_co for a cheeseburger. (All hail the return of the classic burger counter!) Then @donutmonsterhamilton for a grab-bag six-pack of mystery donuts. A visit to @shopkitsu and a few others - how awesome was it seeing the whole 'hood mobilizing to support local? See ya soon, @lockestshops. #HamOnt #ootd #wiwt #wiwtd #menswear #styleblogger #style #fashion The latest experiment by @meritbrewing is Raspberry Brownie Nowhere Imperial Stout... quite the experience from start to finish! First sip delivered strong raspberry acidity with a boozy kick - honestly, Tylenol was the first thing that came to mind. How's that for nostalgia? The flavours quickly mellowed into a sweet berry liqueur as the dark chocolatey notes emerged, fulfilling its delicious promise. (And boy did I enjoy the rest of my night thanks to its hefty 9.6 ABV.) #hamont #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #beertography #stout #ontariocraftbeer #cheers Back on the road. It feels like close to a year since I've last run - life comes at you pretty fast. Let's just say it felt great! #running #hamont #gagepark #runhamont Tonight's armchair sipper. Roasted malts and earthy hops imbue it with a richness reminiscent of South American coffee. I have yet to make the pilgrimmage to @cliffordbrewing's new East End location, but I can tell you it'll be soon! (And for more of this heavenly stuff.) #HamOnt #beer #beerporn #instabeer #craftbeer #cliffordbrewing #ontariocraftbeer #drinklocal
