With at least one more big beach weekend coming up (and more if you live in the warm parts of the world), here’s a quick review of yet another sunscreen that I picked up a couple of weeks ago: Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen SPF 70.
I have so many sunscreens. Why do I need another one, you ask? Because this one is a multitasking sunscreen and body lotion, that’s why!
I found that I was often lazy about putting sunscreen on my body when I went out for a jog or even to the beach. I bought Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen because it’s a body lotion and sunscreen in one. So much easier! I take a shower and put it on instead of my regular body lotion if I know I’m heading outdoors. It hydrates my skin and protects it at the same time. Done!
Although it says that you can use this on your face, I don’t. I have other even lighter weight sunscreens or moisturizers with SPF specially created for the face. A couple of folks who reviewed the product on the Aveeno website said it stung their eyes. I bought it as a body lotion/sunscreen.
I must really like this stuff because I bought it less than 3 weeks ago, and I’ve only got about a quarter of the tube left. Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen SPF 70 comes in a 3 oz. tube. It has a slight floral-ish scent that isn’t objectionable. The lotion is white and medium weight, but it rubs in easily and isn’t sticky but leaves a light barrier on my skin. It’s oil-free and non-comedogenic. Like any sunscreen, it should be reapplied after 80 minutes or after going in the water. Broad spectrum, dermatologist recommended. I bought the SPF 70, but it also comes in SPF 50 and 30 if you don’t need as much coverage. The MSRP is $10.99. I bought mine at CVS but it’s widely available.
Here’s the complete ingredient list –
Have a great Labor Day Weekend if you’re in the U.S. and enjoy the end of summer if you’re in the Western hemisphere!
