It’s no secret that I am a little lazy when it comes to my beauty routine and constantly on the hunt for products that shave precious seconds off my prep time. BB Cream? Sold! Cheek Stain that works as lip color? Genius. 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner? Not as great as regular shampoo and conditioner but I LOVE cutting a minute off my shower, so sign me up! However, I have had some issues finding skin care items that do double duty, specifically moisturizers with SPF. I know that there are countless moisturizers with SPF but I have an issue finding ones that I actually like. Lucky for me, Alchimie Forever’s Daily Defense Cream landed on my desk recently and it fits all of my criteria- and then some!
I do not like to feel as though I am slathering Hawaiian Tropic on my face each morning. I prefer my moisturizers to have the constancy of a moisturizer, not a sunscreen, and I certainly do not want it to smell like stale coconut oil. The Alchimie Forever Daily Defense fits the bill perfectly! The texture is smooth and creamy, just as moisturizer should be, and absorbs quickly. Plus, it smells clean and fresh! Even more exciting, in addition to moisturizing and protecting from damaging UV rays, the product also helps to protect the skin and keep it looking younger with a mix of antioxidants, such as blueberry, vitamin C and E and edelweiss. A moisturizing skin care protect that protects from the sun and free radicals while diminishing and preventing aging? I think I found a 3-in-1 moisturizing miracle! Just think of all the extra time I can save in the morning!
