Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30 [Review]

Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30 4 fl oz (118 ml)

I feel like I am a constant search for the best daily facial lotion with sunscreen in it.  I have tried a lot of different kinds.  Many of them only come with an SPF 15 level so when I saw that Eucerin had SPF 30, I immediately knew that it was my new one to try out.  Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion claims to be many things: good for sensitive skin, offers sun protection, fragrance free, etc.  Here is my opinion:

Pros - affordable, lasts a long time (both the amount of product that you purchase and the moisturizing it provides throughout the day), container dispenses a good amount, effectively moisturizes without clogging pores, provides an SPF level you don't find in a lot of face lotions (that are intended for everyday use), fragrance free, felt lightweight and my skin is never irritated by it.

Cons - if you apply it too thickly, it will leave a bit of a white residue, you can feel an almost gritty-like texture if you apply too much and don't rub it in well enough or don't let it soak in.

Overall, I really liked this face lotion.  I am a believer in wearing a lotion with SPF on your face everyday (regardless of if you are going to the office, school or elsewhere).  I would definitely buy this lotion again (and I probably will at some point) and I think it is incredibly priced and efficient at what it claims to do.  Once you learn how much to apply and what works for your skin, I do not think you would have any problems that I listed unders the cons section.  I found I encountered these cons the most, when I was in a hurry and haphazardly getting ready or when it was really hot and I already felt like I was melting from the heat outside.

I love that so many product lines are coming out with a variety of products that include sunscreen and protection from the sun.  What are your favorite face lotions with SPF?  How about other makeup or skincare products?

  1. Tell me about it...I gave up on finding a moisturizer that was vegan AND affordable...and I don't think I've ever seen one with SPF in it!!

    I really need to track one down, though...
