I had the opportunity to try Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and really liked it. I have been a fan of Aveeno for a long time and the Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen did not disappoint. Suffering from very dry sensitive skin and excezma I am leery of mixing up my skin care routine as some products are more irritating than others. And we all know that mixing things up too much can actually cause reactions, though usually short term. Aveeno is a brand I have used for many years without any adverse effects. That being said I’ll actually delve into the Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen.
First and foremost I loved the scent. It had a fresh, clean smell that was someone reminiscent of sunscreen, and therefore the beach, but was ‘cleaner’ and lighter. The only drawback from application was that it initially left my skin feeling ‘lotion-y’ but then did absorb in rather quickly without leaving the greasy feel of traditional sunscreen. Due to the fact that the weather has not been cooperative on the weekends to really get out and do anything I can’t overly attest to how well it protects from direct sun. I can attest that I burn very easily and in the past have burned while traveling in the car. I have worn this each day on my hour commute without any signs of sun exposure, which is saying a lot since I do burn VERY easily.
I really do like this product and would feel comfortable applying not only to myself but my children as well. The only real drawback for me was the slight greasy feel after applying but I also appreciate that it did not last long. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to friends and relatives for personal use as well as for use on the kids.
