Quickview Paula's Choice Moisture Boost Daily Restoring Complex SPF 20

Looking for a decent SPF moisturizer that suits my skin isn't an easy job. Lately I've bought a few Paula's Choice products and also some samples. I firstly tried her SPF 15 cream for dry skin which you can read about here, but totally disliked it. Not too long ago she released a new SPF cream, intented for normal to dry skin with SPF20. The higher the SPF, the more I'm willing to try it. I honestly recommend ordering samples from Paula's Choice as not all her products are great, which is why I bought a sample from this one that I've used two days in a row.

Innovative, soufflé-like cream texture to make your skin feel smooth while restoring moisture. Lightweight, satin finish never makes your skin look greasy. Antioxidant-rich formula to boost your skin's defenses and help resist signs of aging. Provides reliable anti-wrinkle protection with stabilized avobenzone. Ideal to prep your dry skin for makeup application. Available for 23,5euros.

The product has a thick and creamy texture, I wouldn't describe it as lightweight, it feels quite heavy when applying but it kind of melts and becomes lighter. What I immediately noticed was the scent, it has that typical sunscreen scent to it, it's not too powerfull so it's tolerable. Applying goes easily, at first it looks a bit greasy and feels sticky (which worked dissapointing) but after a few minutes (surprisingly) the cream has totally sunk in and leaves a nice matte canvas, perfect for makeup application. There's no white cast after applying. I'm considering purchasing this one and see how it goes in the long run. If you've tried it, let me know your thoughts...

Heb je al eens gekeken naar La roche posay zonnecrèmes? Die hebben geweldige bescherming en doen zelfs droge huid normaal voelen. Ik gebruik de SPF 50 versie voor de zomer en werkt geweldig.

Ik heb een tijdje de Anthelios XL50 fluide gebruikt tot ik doorhad dat één van hoofdingrediënten alcohol denatol is en sindsdien mijd ik hun zonnecrèmes. Ik heb er van Avène en Bioderma gebruikt en die vond ik wel leuk en qua ingrediënten ook. In de zomer gebruik ik ook altijd van 50 boven op een normale dagcrème met ingebouwd SPF, zoals deze van 20. Ik smeer me nogal zot in de zomer hehe, maar ik vind dat belangrijk.
