Neutrogena’s Ultra Sheer Moisturizing Face Serum Sunscreen SPF 50+ is brilliant. A complete skincare game changer. We know. We’re sunscreen loyalists, to the point where our sisters have, on more than one vacation, threatened to move their beach chairs if we didn’t cool it with the nonstop sunscreen layering that made us glow an alien-esque opaque white. Sunny vacations included, this sunscreen-infused face serum has altered our appearance for the good. It has also improved our 365 skincare-regime for the better. And we are so very happy.
Above and beyond the obvious, protecting our face from the sun’s harsh UVA (aging; think wrinkles and fine lines) and UVB (burning; think redness, skin damage and cancer), this sheer sunscreen doubles as a serum. Packed with vitamin E, glycerin and water, it helps hydrate our face, add softness and maintain our skin’s natural moisture barrier. It’s sheer and weightless too, drying clear and without a heavy, sticky texture. The formula is also water resistant, so we know we’re well-covered for up to 80 minutes in the sun no matter how much we sweat.
Plus, since it’s a serum and the first product we apply on our clean skin every morning, we can layer our regular moisturizer, along with Neutrogena’s Mineral Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30+ over top without feeling or looking greasy. Lightweight, nourishing and replete with 100 per cent mineral actives and antioxidant vitamin E, this non-chalky sunscreen gives our sensitive skin the extra hit of sun protection we need and without any of our former alien opaqueness. (Full disclosure, we also tote around Neutrogena’s Invisible Daily Defense Body Mist Sunscreen SPF 50+ for quick, head-to-toe touch-ups.)
Sure, some may say we’re obsessed, but we think we’re smart. After all, we are the ones who found the Ultra Sheer Moisturizing Face Serum Sunscreen SPF 50+, incorporated it into our mornings and have never looked better.
