Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Walgreens, Target, and Drugstore.com.
Scent: none
I Like: how well the unscented moisturizer works on dry skin.  Also provides UVA/UVB sun protection.
Not a fan of: the silicone (cyclomethicone) and plastic (polymethyl methacrylate) based ingredients.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 was my go-to face moisturizer for a number of years when I first got into skin care.  The product is very basic, but effective for those with dry skin.  It’s unscented, provides moderate sun protection, and moisturizes quite well.  While this moisturizer is lightweight compared to other facial sunscreens I have used, it can leave some shine.  I have combination skin and this product worked particularly well on the dry areas.  While I didn’t experience breakouts using this moisturizer, I have heard of people with sensitive skin experiencing a slight stinging sensation when using it.  If you’re looking for a fragrance-free face moisturizer with UVA/UVB sun protection, Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 is worth trying at least once.  Who knows – maybe it will be your go-to face lotion for years to come.

The Real Shaving Company Sensitive Shaving Gel Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at The Real Shaving Company and Rite Aid Pharmacy.
Scent: masculine cologne-like fragrance.
I Like: the product’s clarity and thick consistency.  Great value.
Not a fan of: the strong scent.

Are you a shaving aficionado on a tight budget?  The Real Shaving Company’s Sensitive Shaving Gel is proof that you can get a quality English-made shave product for about five dollars.  What I enjoy most about this shave gel is its thickness and clarity.  The thickness provides a nice buffer to protect your skin while getting a close shave.  The clear gel allows you to see exactly what you’re shaving – ideal for those delicate, hard to reach places near the earlobes and under nose.  The aloe in the product helps to alleviate razor burn.  The cologne-like scent is quite strong, but I suppose you can’t ask for too much when you’re paying five bucks.
