Spring is officially here! The weather in Indiana has been warming up, and my mood has gotten so much better now that I can open up my windows to let some fresh air in. The sun is shining!
Like a lot of people, I’m inspired and reenergized to live life. I’ve really been enjoying taking walks in the evening. Crazy how temperature can affect our minds so much!
Now that the sun is shining all of it’s goodness during the day, I’m becoming more aware of how I always forget to slap on sunscreen before going out! It is such a bad habit… when the cold weather rolls around, I tend to forget to wear my SPF. I know, that is totally wrong! Although the sun isn’t shining so brightly, it is still out there and my skin is still getting hit with UVA/UVB rays. I have to be better at this!
I decided to fix this situation by using a light daytime moisturizer with SPF included. After all, I wash my face without fail every morning and moisturize, so this would just simplify the whole process. In fact, I don’t even think about the SPF really. 😉
While I was browsing in Ulta, I came across the Natural Even Advanced Sea Moss Moisturizer with SPF 15 from Alba Organics. I didn’t hesitate to buy it because it is vegetarian, organic and free from icky ingredients like sulfates, parabens and phthalates. It also boasts quite the benefits:
A daily dose of sun doesn’t have to be a risky proposition with this lightweight, antioxidant-rich miracle worker. Our naturally powerful Marine Complex, featuring sea moss extracts, stimulates cell regeneration to help correct uneven tone, while our breathable sunscreens help protect against future discoloration and sun-induced complexion issues. Wears well alone or under make-up.
I have to say, I am very impressed with this moisturizer. It has a permanent place in my morning beauty routine now! Although this moisturizer has sunscreen in it, it doesn’t really have that strong smell that a lot of beauty products have. It does have a heavy scent, which may bother people who are sensitive to smells. For me, it isn’t bad and the smell goes away quickly after applying. It has a very lightweight texture, which works really well with any makeup I apply.
This Natural Even Advanced Sea Moss Moisturizer with SPF 15 from Alba Organics is definitely my go-to moisturizer and sunscreen combined in one for the spring!
