Product Review: Purlisse SPF 30

Today I will be reviewing the Purlisse SPF 30 Essential Daily Moisturizer that I received in my April Look Bag.  For me, being the pasty pale white girl that I am, SPF is really important so I always make sure to incorporate products into my daily routine that include SPF protection including my makeup and most importantly my moisturizer.  I have combination skin, so my forehead and t-zone is very dry but my chin is oily and prone to acne.  It's important to me to have a moisturizer that doesn't make my chin too oily while still giving my t-zone that extra moisture it needs so I was really interested to try this product.  The sample I received for this product was .5 oz.   

Product Details:  Hydra~Shield Complex provides balanced UVA/UVB sun protection, while Vitamin E and Soy Proteins let skin's softer, supple side shine through White Tea calms sensitive skin.  Absorbs in an instant for quick-dry application.  Non-whitening formula allows for under makeup perfection.  Source.

My Initial Impression:  The texture of this product reminds me of sunscreen so I was hoping it wasn't going to leave my face feeling greasy, a common problem I have with facial moisturizers.  It doesn't have an odor which is good because I hate having to smell something on my face.

  • No smell;
  • Smooth application;
  • Does not leave face feeling greasy;
  • Doesn't leave while color on face to mess up makeup.
  • None that I can think of.
Final Impression:  I really enjoyed using this product.  It left my face feeling nice and smooth and not overly greasy, a big plus in my book!  I love that it has SPF 30 as opposed to SPF 15 because like I said I'm pale and can use all the protection I can get.  This also doesn't change the texture of my foundation like some moisturizers do.  Overall I was very pleased with this product and would recommend it.  The full size product is 1.7 oz and sells for $55.00 here.

The LookBag was purchased by me with my own money.  I am not affiliated with The Look Store or Purlisse.  I am not being paid for my reviews and all opinions are my own personal opinions.
