Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream with SPF and Hydrating Accelerator
Just before Valentine’s Day! ♥
Living in Arizona and having fair skin do not go well together, but here I am with the sun shining brightly in the sky beaming down on my rapidly aging skin. It is actually overcast today, but you get the picture.
I hate wearing sunscreen because it makes my face sticky, whiter than usual and it smells. You always hear celebrities saying the secret to their skin looking so young is that they never go anywhere without sunscreen. Oh and lots of water and sleep! I bet it has nothing to do with those very expensive dermatologist and plastic surgeon appointments.
I would love to say that I wear sunscreen everyday, but I would be lying. Until now that is. The Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30 feels like a light weight lotion and goes on easily without any white cast or stickiness to it. My makeup goes on smoothly and it doesn’t affect the color of my skin. It has a very pleasant odor without any hint of zinc oxide smell. It actually has zinc oxide in it to protect against UVA and UVB rays, but Mr. Rosebrook has chosen “a high quality uncoated, non nano, high micron zinc oxide.” It also contains an array of herbs and plant oils reminiscent of an English Garden which work as anti inflammatory agents and antioxidants to reduce redness and irritation while repairing, moisturizing and protecting the skin from damaging solar rays.
The day cream is pricey, but if you factor in the cost of day cream, sunscreen and skin cancer screening, it is a wash! There is also a tinted version of this cream that I have not tried.
The Hydrating Accelerator is a wonderful toner that also hydrates the skin. Some people only want a toner to tighten the skin, but I want one that does both! Gone are the days where we apply toner with a cotton ball and our skin feels tight and dry afterward. The main ingredient is Aloe Vera Leaf Juice which hydrates and calms irritated skin. It also helps the many antioxidants and fatty acids in it to absorb into the skin to help detoxify, calm and brighten your skin.
After reading about Josh Rosebrook and his commitment to quality and organic ingredients, I have fallen more in love! Don’t be scared Josh! These two items will definitely be staples in my daily skin care routine.
