As someone that *gasp* barely ever wore sunscreen unless at the beach, now that I’m in my 30’s, it’s about time I actually started to listen to the people screaming “WEAR SPF!” into the ether. It’s been shown that wearing SPF, even if you’re indoors but especially if you are outside a lot during the day, can help prevent premature aging. And now that I’m inside basically all the time, I thought it best to start getting into that habit now, so that it becomes ingrained into my muscle memory before we’re allowed back outside.
It’s not quite a serum, but not really a gel either. It leaves a nice, dewy look to the skin that doesn’t look oily (even on my combination skin). There’s no fragrance, though there is a bit of a scent — it almost smells like the inside of the bottle itself, slightly plastic-y. It absorbs super quickly and doesn’t pill under anything I layer it with. After using it for a couple weeks now, I already notice some of my post-acne marks starting to fade and my skin feels even and toned. My only qualm is the size: I wish you got a bit more in the bottle since it’s supposed to be an everyday product.
Vitamin C is used to help even out skin tone, lighten dark marks, and increase cell turnover for healthier-looking skin. Before Daily Dose, there were no SPF products (to my knowledge) with vitamin C as an active ingredient — normally, getting vitamin C into your routine means adding an additional step. This 2-for-1 packs a vitamin C shot with an SPF 40 chaser.
