Avalon Organics Vitamin C Moisture Plus Lotion with SPF 15

Posted

Pros: nice smell, good moistuizing, SPF

Cons: several chemicals, high skin deep score (mainly due to the sunscreens used)

I bought this product because I wanted a facial moisturizer with SPF.  There aren't many natural products that fit the bill, and this was as close as I could get.  I believe the high skin deep rating is due to the chemical sunblocks.  I try to avoid chemical sunblocks, but didn't see any mineral sunblock facial moisturizers.  I guess that I am minimizing my contact with those chemicals by using mineral sunblock for arms and legs...

 

This product smells nice (like orange pushpops- it makes me kinda hungry!), goes on well, and leaves my skin feeling nice.

 

However, there are quite a few chemicals in this lotion beyond just the sunscreens.  I am not 100% sure how comfortable I feel with this product, or whether I will buy it again.
