If you’ve read my posts, you know I’ve had the opportunity to review several Yes To products recently. The Yes to Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturizer with SPF 30 is the latest product review I have for you, so keep reading after the break for the full scoop.
I like that this product is 97% natural, and includes proven UVA and UVB protection. I live in Southern California, so SPF is an absolute must for my fair skin! The ingredients include:
- Blueberries, which are rich in antioxidants to help fight free radicals, which can be damaging to skin
- Organic Cotton Thistle, which is clinically proven to rehydrate skin and promote repair in just seven days (WOW!)
- Zinc + Titanium Dioxide, which are natural sun protectants
While the directions advise you to cleanse with Yes to Blueberries Smoothing Daily Cleanser before applying this moisturizer, I don’t own that cleanser so I used my normal one. I was eager to test the claim that this moisturizer can help rehydrate and repair skin in just one week, so I got right down to business.
After Seven Days
After faithfully using this moisturizer for a week, I learned a few things about it. First of all, you need to make sure to rub the lotion in completely to avoid a white, chalky cast. However, I feel this can be said about any facial moisturizer that contains SPF so the fact that you have to blend thoroughly for it to be absorbed doesn’t bother me. Honestly, you just need to pay a little more attention when applying this than you would with a non-SPF moisturizer, and focus on using a little less product than you normally would.
Secondly, I was very pleased with how pleasant this smells. I really can’t stand the smell of most sunblocks, but even though this contains a fairly high level of SPF, I was not overwhelmed by any funky sunscreen smell. It’s light and pleasant, and the scent doesn’t linger.
While there wasn’t a huge difference in the appearance of my skin after seven days, I definitely noticed that my skin felt more supple than it has before. That was a plus for me!
While I haven’t completely replaced my regular moisturizer with this one, the Yes to Blueberries Daily Repairing Moisturizer does make regular appearances in my morning routine, especially when I know I’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors. If you’re looking for a natural moisturizer with SPF and don’t mind making sure to rub the product in thoroughly, this is a great product I’d whole-heartily recommend.
