I’ll be honest, new formulas frighten me. I like the formulas I know, love, and use all the time, thankyouverymuch. So when I heard Laura Mercier was reformulating their cult favorite product, I was a bit (read: VERY) concerned. Turns out, I shouldn’t have been. The reformulation is phenomenal, and took place because the sunscreens in the old product were chalky, making medium and deeper shades difficult to create, so this overhaul was necessary. New shades have been added to the line, as well as lighter SPF options, too (with increased SPF coverage now at SPF 30). I’ve used the new formula, I don’t even miss the old one, and I’m confident you’ll feel the same. Check the recent reviews, everyone is still obsessed. Also, take note that they've made natural and illuminating formulations, and while I love both, I've personally been using the illuminating formula and absolutely love it. It gives the most beautiful, subtle glow without making me look like I've been glitter-bombed.
