During the spring and summer, even a dry skinned gal like me likes to lighten things up. And that’s what I’ve done with my daytime moisturizer. In April, I received a jar of Reviva Labs Light Cream Sun Protective Moisturizer, and since then, I’ve been hooked.
Reviva Labs Light Cream Sun Protective Moisturizer is more like a soufflé than a cream. It feels delightful on my skin: lightweight but completely hydrating. Greaseless, too. My skin drinks it up immediately, and it’s perfect to wear under foundation. I know that some of you may balk because it’s in a jar rather than a tube, but I use a scoop and I don’t leave the top off. I love how creamy it looks in the jar.
Sun Protective Moisturizer has SPF 25 although it doesn’t say that on the packaging. It does say “Sun Protective” as well as “Ideal for Daily Use Outdoors”. It also provides UVA/UVB protection. I was unaware that unless a skincare company goes through specific tests to prove the SPF factor, they are unable to publish the specific SPF on the packaging. I’ve wondered why I receive so few daytime moisturizers with SPF for review from so many of the skincare companies who approach me to try their products. Now I get it: it is cost prohibitive for smaller companies to do the mandated testing so many smaller brands just don’t make a daytime moisturizer. Because Reviva Labs is a brand that I have used for a number of years, I trust it. So I’m fine with using “Sun Protective Moisturizer”.
There are lots of things to love about Reviva Labs products: how affordable they are, that they’re available all over. Plus, they’re parabens-free, vegan and do not test on animals.
Reviva Labs Sun Protective Moisturizer contains 1.5 oz. and is priced around $13 (but I have seen it for less). It’s sold on the Reviva Labs website, at Ulta Beauty, Walmart, iherb.com, Amazon, vitacost.com and other retailers.
Do you wear a daytime moisturizer with sunscreen built-in, or do you go for a separate sunscreen over a regular moisturizer? Just curious!
