The reason why I switched to this is because my Elemis maximum moisture cream had ran out and I didn't fancy spending £35 on a day cream that didn't even have SPF. I had used the Olay Beauty Fluid in the past and really liked it, so the last time I was in Boots I decided to pick up the version with SPF, and am so glad that I did. Not only have I been loving it, but so has my husband. We can't get over how moisturising yet light it is all whilst protecting our face.
The fluid itself is white that becomes sheer once blended, it looks gloopy but it's actually a very light consistency. I would describe the scent as a subtle mix between baby lotion and sunscreen.
Once the cream has been rubbed in, it becomes invisible on your skin. It doesn't leave any sort of greasy or oily residue, it's pure matte and looks like your own skin. My skin feels like it has had a moisture drink and doesn't feel tight or dry at all. The normal beauty fluid didn't give me this much moisture, I would say the UV fluid gives you double the moisture whilst still being light.
It's also a fantastic base for make up and friendly to your pocket. This product has been around for years and I am gutted I have just discovered it, what a slow coach!
Please note: SPF moisturisers can be quite tricky, as some of them tend to break me out, neither me or my husband have had a bad reaction to the UV fluid. Skincare is very personal, so what works for me may not work for you. Use at your own risk.
Price: £4.99 - 100ml
