Switching My Daily Moisturizer to EUCERIN Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30

I am beyond sold on this daily moisturizer.  I've only been using it for two days, but I love how it makes my face look and feel, the good amount of SPF, and most importantly, the price.  It is sold at your nearest drugstore or discount retailer.  Target has it for the cheapest everyday price of $6.99.  I just happened to get it at Walmart yesterday because I had other items to buy there, and as it so happened, it was on Rollback for $6.96.  For 4 fl. oz, this bottle will probably last me 6 or more months, and I apply face moisturizer on my face, neck and upper chest.  The broad spectrum SPF 30 is the highest SPF I've seen on a face moisturizer, which is perfect for Summer.  For me, it's good for year-round face protection and hydration, since I live in sunny Miami.  It's very light-weight, great for people with normal to oily skin.  If you have extra dry skin and live in a dry climate, I would probably recommend a thicker and richer daytime moisturizer.  There is a light fragrance from the sunscreen, typical of what other sunscreens smell like, but it does dissipate after application.  This moisturizer actually lessens the appearance of spots on my skin due to the milkiness of the sunscreen (I think it's from the sunscreen,) but it does not leave streaks or anything like that.  The best part is that my skin feels silky smooth after it dries.

I owe my Mom for introducing this daytime moisturizer to me.  She saw it on Dr. Oz this week, and they even had a giveaway Online, which we both missed out on.  Oh well, but it doesn't matter.  At about $7, it is incredibly affordable.

I was using Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford for about a year now and cancelled my membership because something in the formulation was giving me rough patches on my face.  Although not visible, I hated how my face felt.  I think everyone wants their face to feel smooth, right?  For about $30 a month, Meaningful Beauty ships products every 3 months for a 90-day supply.  Their daily moisturizer is only 1 fl. oz. and that lasts me a little over 90 days.  Before Meaningful Beauty, I was using the Mary Kay Timewise (Normal to Oily formula) skin care regimen for years, almost a decade.

I believe in keeping your face-care the same brand to ensure product compatibility, but I am going to go rogue for a bit and see how mixing and matching my skincare products work out for me.  Since I will soon be running out of my Meaningful Beauty supply, I went ahead and bought my skincare products:  Clean and Clear day and night face wash combo pack, L'oreal night cream and eye cream, and the EUCERIN Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30 as my day moisturizer.  All of these cost me about $40 and will probably last for at least 3 or so months, which beats the $90+ to $120+ I was paying for before for a 90 day supply.  I'll see how it goes...
