I’ll be honest and admit that I didn’t always wear sunscreen every day. I already had a go-to moisturizer that I loved and I did not want to mess things up by adding a sticky, gross sunscreen underneath.
But after editing one too many beauty stories that extolled the importance of wearing sunscreen daily, it finally clicked for me. Luckily, this was also around the time that L’Oreal’s Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Day Lotion came across my desk. I decided to use it instead of my go-to day cream for a week, just to test the waters, and now more than three weeks later I haven’t stopped using it!
Full disclosure: this cream is definitely a bit thicker than what I was used to. But trust me, this is not a bad thing. It absorbs into your skin so quickly and dries fast; I never have to wait more than a minute before starting my makeup application.
What I really love about this day lotion, however, is how bright and glowy it makes my skin. My old moisturizer was great in that it kept my skin soft and hydrated, but this stuff does all that and more. Honestly, at the end of the day, I still can’t believe how luminous my cheeks and forehead look.
The best part of all? This L’Oreal moisturizer has SPF in it! So on those hot and sunny summer days, I’m fully protected, plus my skin looks amazing. I don’t ordinarily spend $20 on moisturizer, but take my word for it–this one is so worth it!
