Neostrata Sheer Hydration SPF 35: Is It Sheer Bliss?

Even though summer is officially over, you still have to protect your skin from the sun.  When I was younger, I often forgot to apply moisturizer with SPF during the colder months.  But that was a huge mistake!  Sunny rays can reach you any time of the year, like when you’re outside freezing at a football game or going about your daily commute (whether you’re in a vehicle or on foot).

I have been testing out NeoStrata Sheer Hydration SPF 35 for the past 2 weeks.  Aside from the obvious broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection, this moisturizer is supposed to:

  • help control oil.
  • even out your skin tone.
  • increase skin firmness.

These are all wonderful attributes, but do I prefer NeoStrata Sheer Hydration SPF 35 to other SPF moisturizers?  Keep reading to find out!

Key Ingredients

Neostrata Sheer Hydration SPF 35  is oil- and fragrance-free.  It’s also non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic.  So far, so good, right?  I love a moisturizer that won’t clog up my t-zone!

Onto the key ingredients:

  • patented NeoGlucosamine®, clinically proven to diminish the appearance of dark spots, even out skin tone, and improve texture and elasticity.
  • broad spectrum sunscreen
  • Phytotal®, a gentle botanical blend that helps to control and reduce oil

How to Apply

Apply the Neostrata Sheer Hydration SPF 35 liberally to your face and neck 15 minutes prior to heading out in the sun.  (If you’re going to be swimming, add a waterproof SPF.  And remember, even if you’re not outside, harmful rays can reach your skin through windows!  So wear it inside as well.)

Reapply at least every 2 hours.

My Thoughts and Experience

I love that this SPF moisturizer can fight wrinkles and protect my skin from Mr. Sun.  It’s fragrance-free, so you can’t tell you’re slathering on the ‘screen, and it absorbs so quickly!

I do not have to apply powder or use blotting sheets at ALL throughout the day when I wear this moisturizer– not even on extremely hot days!  This moisturizer hydrates and controls oil like a charm!  Total sheer bliss!  And earlier in the summer, I used a different SPF product, but my dark spots became more pronounced after sun exposure.  But that didn’t happen with this Neostrata gem!  My skin tone looks so much more even!

I will definitely purchase this product when my current bottle runs out and use it all year round.  Purchase it HERE.  Also, browse Neostrata’s other products!  They are all formulated by dermatologists with premium skincare ingredients.

Have you seen my reviews of this Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator and these Vitamin C Serum Capsules??  They are made by the same company!  Be sure to check them out.

*Neostrata sent me this product via Brandbacker in exchange for an honest review.

That’s what’s up in skincare today. Do you plan on wearing SPF all winter long?
