Elemis Weaknesses: Very expensive; many products contain fragrance components that can cause irritation; some of the sunscreens contain embarrassingly low SPF ratings; mostly average yet overpriced moisturizers; no reliable exfoliants; no skin-lightening products; no effective anti-acne products; masks that are bound to confuse skin; claims that entice consumers to believe various plants will prevent wrinkles and revitalize skin.
I am 50 and have AMAZING skin; what I use for daytime is: MOISTURE DEFENSE ANTIOXIDANT MOISTURIZER SPF 20 by MD Formulations
Now this is how to formulate a great daytime moisturizer with sunscreen! UVA protection is assured thanks to zinc oxide, and the silky lotion formula feels great and works beautifully for normal to dry skin. Antioxidants are plentiful, the formula includes some good water-binding agents, and it is fragrance-free. “Moisture and protection without a greasy look and feel” is a fairly accurate way to describe this product. Those with slightly oily skin will find this doesn’t hold back shine, but those with normal to dry skin will find it leaves a natural matte finish that is comfortable under makeup. Well done, MD Formulations!
