Review: Clean & Clear Pore Perfecting Moisturizer

This photo was taken in the car.... right before I returned this product to CVS. So nice that they have such a good guarantee on their health/beauty items, because I was allergic to this product.
I thought it would be a great product- an oil free moisturizer with SPF that acts as a primer. And I figured if it was by Clearn & Clear, it certainly wouldn't break me out.

And it seemed fine in the morning. My makeup went on nicely. I was shine free at lunch. But by mid-afternoon, it was getting warmer outside (and in my office, sucky A/C), and I started itching. Very bad. I need to take a look at the ingredients, because the itching was similar to the effect that Bare Minerals has on me, and I've been told that it could be bismuth.

So this was a no-go. What moisturizer with SPF are you using right now? I'm testing out one from Kate Sommerville and so far so good- more on that later.

Pin It!

I've been stuck on Aveeno ultra calming moisturizer w/SPF 15 for about oh, 5 years!? Good stuff. Not oily, but very moisturizing.

I love Cover Girl's CG Smoothers Tinted Moisture. SPF 15, hint of color (but not like a true foundation). I think it's oil free, too.

You won't believe this. I just bought this product a few weeks back! I actually love it, but I will link to you when I write a/b it for those w/ a reaction to bismuth...which is my mom. She can't wear any mineral foundations, either. Weird. Also, what did you think of the Hoopla bronzer?

Hey Sasha! I've started using Vanicream sunscreen after I had to see a dermatologist due to a reaction to some makeup. I haven't had any problems with it and it protects my skin well. I don't like the smell of the lotion so I haven't tried it, but the sunscreen smells fine and works well. I know you probably want an all-in-one product, but if you can't find one, you may want to try vanicream.

Slim, I will check out the Aveeno. My HG scrub is their scrub in the light green tube.

Katerwaul- I do like Cover Girl, but fear that my skin needs more coverage than a TM. I've been trying their foundation that has Olay products in it and shall report soon.

SassyGal- I am plum scared of the Hoola! Lord, give me the strength to try it out....

Renee, I have heard great things about Vanicream. It's also on the good suncreen list..... thanks for the rec!
