It has been a challenge to find skincare that protects my 30 year old skin from the harmful rays of the sun. My dermatologist six months ago told me that I needed to stop using my moisturizer that had spf 15 in it but it was literally the only moisturizer that would not make my skin break out and didn't leave an oily residue.
The problem with my skin is that it is oily combo in some parts and dry in others. Oh the joys of being in your 30s. So I ditched that moisturizer and I've literally been searching for a great moisturizer that has at least spf 30 in it, that would also be great for my combo skin. Cut two months ago I had to go back to her for my follow up to remove a cancerous looking mole and she had a list of moisturizers that I could afford and this was one of them. So I put it on my Amazon wishlist because I was like "noted by my dermatologist this is one of the brands she recommends."
Now cut to Influenster coming into my life. The story that I told above is one of those funny moments in your life where everything sort of just comes together. They selected me to review these products (the moisturizer and the cleanser) via complimentary. I literally was jumping for joy because I was waiting to purchase this EXACT moisturizer based on the recommendations of my dermatologist. It was like FATE!
So here is my review- I've been wearing this moisturizer now for 2 solid weeks. I am a firm believer that if you are going to review something, you need to first give it time for your skin to adjust and then see how your skin reacts to the product. First thing I noticed is that the moisturizer blended in really nicely, a little goes a long way. Second the consistency was never too thick for my combo skin to handle. It absorbed into my skin and didn't leave an oily residue afterwards. Third (this one is important because I've noticed with my aging skin that it has gotten more sensitive to products with SPF) I had no reactions to the spf other than seeing that it was protecting my fair Irish skin from the harmful rays. I'm using this in the cold weather in NY and my skin has really responded so nicely to using this every single day. My skin feels moisturized and it looks great.
I would absolutely recommend this moisturizer for those with combo skin and for those who are concerned about a good/high spf in your normal skincare routine. I will absolutely be re-purchasing this product after I am done with it.
A moisturizer with sunscreen is extremely important to me and to my surprise this had ingredients I had not seen before. I typically see Zinc Oxide, but this one had different ingredients for SPF, which I really liked! Sometimes Zinc can be hard on my face by increasing breakouts on my face, so I was happy to find an alternative.
This moisturizer does feel like a typical sunscreen when you first apply it, but it does dry like a powder. I have combination skin and this product hydrated my dry areas without making my oily areas worse, like others in the market. I felt like this was a very even product for my skin type. This product quickly absorbed on my face which I loved. I do use a face oil as a foundation primer and it works well under that too!
I would highly recommend to anyone with combination skin!

I typically get dry spots on my forehead towards the end of the day regardless of how much facial serums and beauty oils I've tried in the past. I was very surprised when I noticed that my skin stayed hydrated all day and no longer needed a midday blast of thermal water or serum.
A small downside is that is this product still feels like a slightly thick sunscreen when applying it, but fortunately it quickly absorbs into my skin and then I felt like I was wearing nothing extra on my face. It works well under makeup, so it's a good way to add SPF protection to my daily routine. Although the company states it does not conduct animal testing, I saw that they do not have any external Leaping bunny or other cruelty free certification for this product or brand.
Overall, it has performed very well as a hydrating sunscreen for my dry, sensitive skin and see why it is an Allure beauty award winner.
I also let my husband try it since he has oily skin and he thought it was a great daily sunscreen for his face.
