SKIN CARE REVIEWS

12.14.18 AD DISCLOSURE

the cosmetic chemists behind the Skinceuticals Light Moisture UV Defense created this product to serve as a daily sunscreen that was suitable for everyone, regardless of skin type or major skin concerns. Because of this, the formula behind this product is completely oil free, which is often a better option for those with oily, combination, sensitive or clog-prone skin types. Since sunscreen if often one of the most difficult products to find just the right formula for your specific skin type, eliminating ingredients that can be potentially comedogenic helps to greatly improve the chances that a given product will work well with your skin. In addition to their skin-friendly formula, this product has also been designed to have a weightless texture, capable of being used daily on the face and body. Sunscreen is by far the most important step in an anti-aging skincare routine, so it’s important to find a daily sunscreen like the Light Moisture UV Defense that works with your skin and feels comfortable to apply underneath makeup.
