Vitamin B niacinamide together with other antioxidants provides multiple anti-aging benefits to the skin after being joined with the third and fourth ingredient Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide in addition to two other sunscreen actives to create a broad spectrum of sun protection.
For skin tones other than light to medium or slightly dark skin tone, the daytime moisturizer might not blend well with the foundation as the tint in the product offset the white cast from the zinc oxide.
The daytime moisturizer might seem quite costly to many individuals but considering the formula created to provide sun protection it is above and beyond not forgetting the fact that the size is generous for a typical facial daytime moisturizer.
Even though the daytime moisturizer claims “Total” defense from UV rays which is hard to achieve in any sunscreen as it was found in this article, it, however, does have a formula with antioxidants which through research have been proven to protect the skin from environmental damage including infrared rays.
For the right skin type and tone, this daytime moisturizer is worth looking at as its lightweight hydrating features make it feel more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen which is a plus while at the same time preventing skin from further sun damage thanks to the impressive array of antioxidants.
