Sunscreens from Osmosis Pür Medical Skincare

Living in Las Vegas has brought a new element to my skincare routine I didn’t have to think about while living in New York! SPF and Sunscreen is definitely a must everyday here. I can only count on 1 hand how many overcast, rainy days there has been here for the last 9 months.

Living in this soleil paradise means that your skin becomes way more susceptible to sun damage, sun spots, sun burns and maybe skin cancer too.  I have discovered the range of OSMOSIS that have a variety of SPF products.  I love the lightness of the products and how they are good for my skin too! Take a look at their range and see if there is something that can be right for you.

Each year, there are more new cases of skin cancer1 than the combined incidence of breast, prostate, lung and colon cancers.2 This means 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime3 with 90% resulting from over exposure to the sun. Applying sunscreen is one of the most important steps of a basic skincare routine and it is often the one part many of us forget.

From foundations infused with SPF to drinkable, all over coverage, Osmosis Pür Medical Skincare shares their top products to easily add sun protection to your daily beauty regime.

1.     Osmosis Shade Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen Moisturizer

This broad spectrum mineral SPF provides the ultimate protection utilizing both Zinc and Titanium Dioxide. The best part of Shade is that it is also a moisturizer, giving you two steps in one. Arnica Extract, Goji Berry and Cranberry Extract andPassion Fruit Oil protect your skin in the most luxurious way. Arnica helps heal the skin from bruising and current sun damage, while Goji Berry, Cranberry and Passion Fruit Oil provide a whole variety of antioxidants, moisture, free radical protection, and antibacterial/microbial benefits (perfect for those who struggle with acne).

2.     Osmosis Protect Ultra Sheer SPF 30

This sheer SPF 30 is gluten free and vegan, giving you ultimate protection from Zinc Oxide. Witch Hazel, Sunflower Oil and Grapefruit Oil treat your skin to light hydration, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and soothing properties. This lightweight SPF wears beautifully under makeup and never feels greasy.

Price: $30 from

3.     Osmosis Colour Pressed Base Mineral Foundations

If you would like to avoid any concerns about reapplying SPF once you have makeup on, then use the Osmosis Colour Pressed Base Mineral Foundation. Shielding skin from UVA and UVB rays, it offers a constant SPF 27+ protection, once applied evenly all over, that does not expire because minerals are constantly reflecting UV light away from the skin. Flawless and seamless, each shade provides a semi-matte finish with long-lasting coverage. It applies quickly and easily with no mess and is packaged in a stylish mirrored compact. Available in 14 shades.

Price: $44 from

4.     Osmosis Harmonized H20 UV Neutralizer – No Tan Frequency and UV Neutralizer – Tan Enhancing Waters

Similar to broad spectrum SPF 30 products, both waters result in 3 hours of coverage that can be repeated for extended stays in the sun. This is all done through an innovative new technology utilizing frequencies that work against the damaging effects of the sun. They are perfect for those who tend to forget to apply topical SPF. Each water enhances your body’s defenses to UV rays, while the No Tan Frequency formula keeps your skin from burning or tanning. The UV Neutralizer Tan Enhancing Water formula will help your body’s defenses to UV rays while allowing your skin to get soft, natural color. They allow for increased sun exposure (30x more than normal), protect your eyes, and do not wash off when swimming.
