I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Though I have oily skin, I wear moisturizer daily and it’s important that I wear one with an spf in it so protect me from occasional sun exposure.
I prefer anything with spf 30 or higher and that has kept me on the expensive side of daily moisturizers, but when I saw that Garnier’s Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion was 99.9% oil-free and had an spf of 15, I decided to give it a try.
As the name suggests, the moisturizer is indeed extremely light weight and is almost watery in feel though it’s nice and thick inconsistency. Because the spf is so low, there’s not much in the way of active ingredients in this moisturizer, and so the moisturizer is so easy to apply because it’s not heavy and thick and doesn’t go on white when you put it on.
If you have fair skin, and have a great deal of sun exposure, I would suggest that you use more than spf 15 on a daily basis, but for those of us in Northern climes, an spf 15 product is sufficient for daily use, especially in the winter.
The Garnier Moisture Rescue lotion is pretty basic: it doesn’t offer extreme hydration, hyaluronic acid, retinol, or any other special ingredients, but for layering below foundation and for oily skins, it’s pretty fantastic and comes in at a reasonable drugstore price of about $12 for a large bottle.
