  • Dr. Jart+ Regenerating Beauty Balm

    I bought this after I decided I needed a lighter foundation for summer, with more sun protection. This does the job perfectly, with a sheer, but buildable coverage, that adjusts to my skin tone beautifully.  From the Boots website, here’s what we know about it: “Suncream to help protect the skin.
