My Experience with Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
I had a pretty good experience with Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer. So, I had high hopes on this on as well. The only reason for picking up this one instead of Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer was the extra hydration that I needed for winter. This comes in a tube packaging and a flip cap.
The texture of this is quite gooey and thus the nozzle gets dirty as we keep taking product out of the tube. The first time that I applied this, I went a little overboard and applied more. It took forever to get absorbed into the skin. Also, left my skin looking and feeling oily. I let that settle for a couple of minutes but still my skin felt oily. I generally use concealer and compact for my daily makeup. When I applied my compact on this, it didn’t even show up. It appeared like I haven’t applied anything on my face.
The next time I tried to apply as less as possible , yet I was not very happy with the result. My skin looked so oily halfway through the day that I had to wash it again. For the records, I have normal to combination skin.
It also has quite a strong floral scent to it. This was totally a dud for me. It might work for extremely dry parched skin. I seriously don’t know what do they mean by “oil free” in the packaging.
Also, the packaging says the product contains nourishing oats, but it is the last ingredient in the long chemical ingredient list.
After using it for over a week, it started clogging my pores and I got more white heads on my nose and chin, that’s it, I couldn’t take it any further and wait for it to work.
Pros of Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
- Contains SPF 30 and provides broad spectrum sun protection (for body, don’t dare to use it on the face).
Cons of Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30:
- Gooey texture and thick consistency.
- Makes skin oily.
- Makeup would not stay on top of it.
- Clogs pores thus causing whiteheads.
I couldn’t use this on my face after a few uses and started using on my hands and legs, at least let my hands and legs would get some sun protection. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
