Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion with SPF 15: A Good, Basic Everyday Go To ProductTuesday, July 20, 2010
If you have been paying attention, you've probably noticed that I very frequently state that I think everyone needs to have a morning moisturizer with at least SPF 15. If you can get a product with broad spectrum UV coverage or an even higher SPF then I commend you. I just think we should all wear it every day, and it is harder to skip a day if it is already integrated into a product you would not skip.
If you've been paying even more attention, you know that I am a very devoted fan of Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15. Which yes, is only SPF 15. And yes, is not quite broad spectrum UV coverage. But, at least it is something, and my skin just loves when I am using this lotion. It is pretty basic and no nonsense, which I also love. But, it can sometimes be hard to find (you really need a Kiehl's store or counter around you to buy it in person, unless you want to buy it on-line). And let's face it, it is a tad expensive.
So, I've been keeping my eyes open for a product that I could recommend to readers that is similar but at a lower price point. And this is definitely it.
There is a reason that Purpose is recommended by so many dermatologists. This moisturizer is oil-free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and fragrance free. The ingredient list is fairly short compared to many products, and the lotion is definitely moisturizing. The consistency is a little thicker than my Kiehl's, but it felt great during application and it absorbs very quickly into skin leaving behind non-greasy skin perfect for applying makeup. My skin reacted really well to using this moisturizer, well hydrated and glowy without any unforeseen blemish issues.
