Week 1 is over! *ding ding ding* It was a short week and I dabbled between 3 moisturizers with various SPF ratings. Here’s a quick review of each one:
ONE: Origins A Perfect World SPF 25
– Age-defense moisturizer with White Tea
– 0.5 fl oz (Full Size is 1.7 oz)
– $39.50 at Sephora
SPF rating: 4/5. SPF 25, not bad!
Smell: 4/5. It smelled…organic. From the white tea? Sunscreen smell wasn’t too overpowering.
Texture: 3/5. Blends well but it’s thicker then I prefer. I like lighter moisturizers better but at least it wasn’t greasy!
Bonus: 4/5. Oil Free and Anti-Aging!
*Note: The full size product comes out of a scoopable jar, not a tube.
TWO: Boscia Self-Defense Vital Antioxidant Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30
– Provides UVA/UVB Protection
– 0.5 fl oz (Full Size 1.4 fl oz)
– $36.00 at Sephora
SPF rating: 5/5. SPF 30, even better!
Smell: 4/5. Slight lotion scent but its very faint.
Texture: 4/5. Applies very light! The consistency is kind of watery but it’s still very hydrating.
Bonus: 5/5. UVA and UVB protection, it’s got antioxidants. Music to my ears!
THREE: Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion
– SPF 30 Anti-Aging/Oil Free Moisturizer
– 0.5 fl oz (Full Size 1.7 fl oz)
– $42.00 at Sephora
SPF rating: 5/5. SPF 30
Smell: 2/5. Smells just like Banana Boat sunscreen.
Texture: 2/5. Consistency is on the thicker side. It absorbs quick but blending it in felt like smearing it on my skin.
Bonus: 4/5. Oil Free and Anti Aging
Here’s what they look like before you blend them in. The Origins moisturizer (1) wasn’t too bad, I liked the Boscia (2) the best, and didn’t really care for the Peter Thomas Roth (3) at all, as an everyday moisturizer. I think I’ll end up using that moisturizer on beach days for protection on the way to ocean.
And there you have it! Have a Safe Sun weekend and stay tuned for next week’s sunscreen reviews!
