HOWEVER, the sun gods have answered my prayers! L'Oreal came out with their Silky Sheer Face Lotion recently and while at Ulta, I literally just picked it up and bought it without thinking. I didn't even look at the box. I just saw that the SPF was 30, and at $9.99 is was a reasonable price. (I think they were also having a deal that particular week. I think L'Oreal skincare was BOGO 1/2 off.)
So now that I've started by saying that, let's look at the BREAKDOWN:
- "Broad spectrum sunscreen protection infused with skin-improving care. Helps protect skin with patented UVA/UVB filter system plus antioxidants Vitamin E and White Grapeseed."
- Love the fact that there is UVA/UVB protection. As for the skin-improving care, I haven't noticed anything yet. But honestly, I just need protection from my sunscreen. I expect other products that are specifically made to improve my skin to make a visible difference.
- "Shake well to activate this virtually weightless lotion. Absorbs quickly and layers invisibly under makeup leaving a silky soft, matte finish on the skin."
- This literally does everything it says it will. 'Nuff said.
Conclusion: I freaking LOVE this stuff. It literally does everything it says it will. It's amazingly lightweight and it absorbs so quickly, it looks like I've applied nothing to my skin right after I've applied it. And I love that it has an SPF of 30, which I'm perfectly content with on a day-to-day basis.
YES MA'AM. Especially because you can find this at Ulta, where there are always "$3.50 off of a purchase of $10 or more" coupons and BOGO 1/2 off discounts. I believe it's also $9.99 at Target. So it's definitely cheap enough to just try it! I'm almost positive you'll fall in love like I have :)
