As I’ve mentioned before, I wear sunblock on my face every day, even during winter, even in the city. And I’ve often had a difficult time finding a facial sun-protection product that I really like.

So I’m sorry to say that if I had to list my beauty-related disappointments of 2012, a top complaint would be the wretched reformulation of my long-cherished Pomegranate Antioxidant Hydration with SPF 20, made by 100% Pure. It was recently changed from a medium-weight, but easily absorbed, facial moisturizer with a high level of physical sunblock to a thick, dry, un-blendable white paste. (I did leave a negative comment about this change on the 100% Pure product page, but customer reviews are no longer being shown there. Interesting.)
