Bliss Youth as We Know It Moisturizer SPF 30 Review
Price: $79 for 1.7oz
Pros: First off, thumbs up on the packaging, it comes in an airtight opaque pump. The packaging is convenience, hygienic, and protects antioxidants. It has high level of active, sunscreen ingredients. If you add them all up, about 25% of the ingredients are active. Being a chemical sunscreen, it also means it is colorless, will not leave a white cast. Also, those with dry skin will appreciate the light yet rich, moisturizing properties.
Cons: It is pricey. I think using expensive sunscreen can be dangerous if the high price make you skim on the amount of product you use.
Overall: I would recommend this for people with normal to dry skin, in cooler climate. If you have oily skin, this is not for you. Even though it is lightweight in texture, it is also hydrating and rich. My skin is combination right now and it is currently hot and humid in D.C. I find that this sunscreen make me shinier than usual. Thus, I am saving this for winter when it will be more appreciated and love, perhaps a higher rating as well.
