First of all Sheer hydration spf 35 is not ideal product for me since my skin type isn’t oily but I do get breakouts. So I like to be careful with products and ingredients I choose. BUT this lovely texture can work even for those with normal or dry skin who are looking for very lightweight daily hydration and high sun protection. Often higher SPF includes thick, hard to spread texture that leaves sticky residue and white cast. That is not the case with Sheer hydration. Extremely lightweight, goes on easily and absorbs instantly while providing great coverage. I also love the packaging with the pump since it’s protecting product from the air and light and it helps you get the right amount every time. One pump is enough for the whole face. I was worried since it’s for oily skin it might dry me out but it did not, it just left my skin soft. I did wear it over my regular mositurizer or serum but if you are not as dry as me this would be all you need. Since it’s so lightweight this is perfect to be used in very hot and humid climates (hello Chicago’s summer and it’s 92% humidity).
What I love about Sheer hydration is the fact that is anti aging but for oily and acne prone skin too. It is extremely hard or almost impossible finding product on the market that will help with aging sings but not being thick, heavy, and very moisturizing. So basically women who are trying to fight sings of aging but struggle with oily skin and acne are left without proper product for them. I often hear women saying “I have these lines and age spots but I can’t use certain product because it is so heavy and my skin is still oily”. Neostrata really nailed it with this product!
