Even though I’m a super busy mother of a very active 2yr old, I do my best to treat my skin and face with only the best products. As I have stated before I refuse to leave the house without some sort of make-up on my face even if it’s just foundation and powder, that is unless it’s an absolute emergency then I don’t particularly like to but I will. My own complaint is my morning skin care routine before I can apply my make-up takes to long sometimes so I actually skit the moisturizers and sunscreens, I know it’s not good but I do well that was until I had the opportunity to try philosophy’s hope oil-free spf 30 moisturizer which takes it from 2 steps to 1 easy step!

I was sent a bottle of philosophy’s hope oil-free spf 30 moisturizer to review and my first thought was maybe this will make it easier to complete my morning facial routine quicker and without using a million different products so I was very excited when it arrived.
I started using it the very next morning and I love that it’s a two in one moisturizer so I don’t have to apply additional sunscreen, but what I love the most is that it’s a very light formula so it doesn’t feel heavy like other combo moisturizers I’ve tried in the past. I’m also loving that it doesn’t cause my face to get oily and break out like said others have. I also love that it leaves a nice clean matte finish to my face and doesn’t leave white streaks like other moisturizers I’ve used.
This moisturizer soaks into my skin quickly and allows me to continue on with my makeup routine, I’ve also had problems in the past with red blotches coming up over the bridge of my nose and on my cheeks when using other moisturizers since my skin is rather sensitive but I’ve had nothing but wonderful results with Philosophy’s hope oil-free spf 30 moisturizer it really gives me no excuse not to wear an spf and protect my face!!
I am in love with philosophy’s hope oil-free spf 30 moisturizer point blank! I absolutely love everything about this moisturizer, I’ve had lots of problems in the past finding a moisturizer and spf that didn’t cause me massive breakouts, greasiness, white streaks and heaviness on my face.
Now that I have discovered philosophy’s hope oil-free spf 30 moisturizer I have no excuse not to use a spf on my face to protect it like I should and I defiantly recommend this product to everyone looking for the perfect moisturizer and spf combination that will leave your skin feeling fresh, clean and protected with out the heavy greasy feel!
