Linda Carlson says:

You can also get colorscience sunforgettable on their website and its buy 2 get 1 free which makes it very affordable!

Irai Rod says:

Supergoop! has both a brush-on powder and a setting mist that can be applied over makeup. I love them both.

Tori says:

Thank you for all of the info. Love your videos.

MR says:

Dominque, would you consider doing an universal eyeshadow look for the mature mother of the bride / groom look?

Elizabeth Detrich says:

Love the Australian Gold tinted sunscreen! Not only does it wear well on all skins but you can tell where you applied it and spots that you’ve missed. It also makes an excellent base for foundation! My foundation wears much better on days that I use this sunscreen. Colorscience is another favorite, I love the portable brush.

Monica P says:

Tried the Bare Republic in stick form and ugh .. returned it as it smelled so bad. Love the Australian gold!

Katina Williams says:

You look so beautiful in this video!

Squad KoDo says:

I’m using Elta MD tinted sunscreen for sensitive skin on my face. A quarter size does the face, neck and decollette, about $30 on the Elta MD website, works really well and I use this without makeup, just the sunscreen. The tint works on all skin colors amazingly. I’m a medium golden and my granddaughter is light golden and it looks good on both of us, just enough coverage.

MissSolitario says:

I like to use Simply Pure Moisturiser: It’s SPF 15 protects from UVA/UVB. It’s fragrance free, hypoallergenic and contains pro vitamin B5, calming Soothex and shea butter. It’s also vegan and cruelty free and suitable for sensitive skin. Available in the United Kingdom from Superdrug.

“Interesting” fact: It may be down to both my maternal and paternal ethnic background. I’ve never once in my whole life had even the slightest bit of sunburn, even though I’m naturally actually quite light. However, once I hit my 20’s I’ve made sure if I’m outside I always have SPF on my face, neck and chest from a purely preventative anti aging perspective.

Lori Zamora says:

Great review! I use Lemongrass Spa Sunscreen Sport Stick. Which is 100% all-natural and affordable.

Samantha Barron says:

Dominique, you make me want to buy everything that you talk about LOL

Jane Gerow says:

I was a swimmer back in the day and I always had a white nose. If not my nose would be a constant burn! Ha! We switched back to a zink this year also

crystal heflin says:

Every time I watch your videos I smile and feel wonderful. That’s not learned…that’s natural..

terwya says:

Have been using Australian Gold for about a year. I really like it but it sometimes can be drying. It does work great under makeup, no pilling.

Elizabeth says:

The natural sunscreens are so important – better for our skin and the world. I really like Jan Marini Physical Protectant (spf 45 and tinted!)

Johanna Content says:

Thank you for the info, like the powder one. Have a beautiful vacation with the birds singing.

Never heard of a water shirt? ♥️. Jessie

Sheri Hammond says:

This video came out the week I was in Isla Mujeres swimming with the whale sharks!! We couldn’t use our regular sunscreen because it kills the plankton that the sharks feed on. Needless to say I GOT SO BURNED!!! Thank you for your recommendations as I will be using biodegradable and ocean – friendly products from here forward. Have a blessed day!!

Raquel Garcia Moreno says:

I love sunscreen, it just makes me feel ready for the day. What a great review and what a peaceful background to be in. Thanks!

Sue Mitchell says:

Australian Gold is now available in London Drugs in Vancouver, BC which is great.

Lindsey Benaissa says:

Hi Dominique you look fantastic! Would love to see your ideas on Autumn/Winter 2018 makeup & fashion trends for over 35s!

Rambling Rose says:

Very good information.

Dana Kennett says:

As a native Floridian, I REALLY appreciate this info!! I love zinc oxide, but NOT the White-Out effect!

Kate W says:

Another great video, Dominique! Gotta love creatures making their creature noises. As for video suggestions…..appreciate anything that you do but would love more organization type videos…something specific in the closet (storing bras/workout clothes, outfit coordination, etc or kitchen organization?) Also, if willing, please tell which Fitbit you are wearing and where you found it. (I think it’s a Fitbit?) Is it gold? Have seen it in a few of your videos. (My Top 5 Current Favorite Finds!)

Virginia V. says:

Thank you for your review. I often hear people say “I have color but I’m not burned, therefore my sunscreen is working.” I have to point out that ANY amount of color signifies sun damage to the skin and this is so important for people to know with the prevalence of melanoma. Please don’t promote one of the myths I often hear on YT.

christine mack says:

Dominique, I’m so blessed that I’ve found you and have been binge watching your videos. You are a delight , generous with your content and yourself ,and I truly appreciate all that you share. I’ve learned so much about embracing my own style through your tips and suggestions. I can’t thank you enough and look forward to your next video. Blessings and love to you!

Cynthia Hughes says:

Hi Dominique…I was wondering about the Australian Gold Botanical Face Suncream, can you tell me if this is actually made in Australia..? and if it is the strange thing is you can get it in the US for only $10 but in Australia on eBay it is $58 plus postage, and also a similar price on Amazon too, such a shame that it is not the same price as the US considering the high rate of skin cancer here….love watching your videos too by the way…

Elana Sargent says:

So fun and informative, nice to have new ideas to try too! I was introduced to Lemongrass Spa a while back. They have a Sunscreen Sport Stick. One is tinted that is a mineral formula with vanilla. It’s wonderful. MineralFusion SPF30 brush on sun defense Woman’s Day Editor’s Pick, oil free powder is nice too.

Monica Soza says:

My mother and I are subscribed to you and we both came to the conclusion that you would make a great QVC host. Thanks for the informative video.

Jennifer Falvey says:

That little bird was really serenading you! Really appreciate the variety of price points. Also glad to hear about Colorscience–been curious, but didn’t want to splash out on it without a review–so thank you!

Michelle L says:

Hi Dominique. You’re one of my favourites but I thought you would also enjoy
She’s an inspiration !

hampton00 says:

I love NeoStrata Sheer Physical Protection SPF 50 (Amazon $32). It has the same sunscreen ingredients and percentages as Exuviance (Ulta $50) Even the container is identical. It’s lightly tinted, transparent and has the consistency of a thin lotion. It has a beautiful finish, is very effective and makeup goes over it nicely. I spent a week walking the streets of Montreal during the recent heat wave and got no sun damage on my face, but my chest was burned…I used a different sunscreen there! Because of the size and price, I’ve only used it on my face, but now I use it on my neck and chest!

starr forrest says:

Love your videos just a note on sunscreens try to use ones without fragrance also when at beach re apply every two hours.please do a declutter closets


great stuff what about hair protection when in the sun specially if you color your hair and pool swiming

Adrienne Brooks says:

great video Dominique! A few years ago I started using Elta MD UV Clear face sunscreen spf 46 with zinc oxide. It’s fantastic – great for people with acne or rosacea. I hope you have a chance to check it out.
