(Neutral) Redness Reducing Moisturizer with SPF 30 ($14.99 for 2.75 ounces) earns its SPF 30 rating from a combination of three synthetic sunscreen actives along with zinc oxide. The synthetic sunscreens have a higher incidence of causing a sensitized reaction, so their inclusion in a product for someone with already reddened (presumably sensitive) skin is an odd choice. A moisturizer with sunscreen that contains only titanium dioxide or zinc oxide as its active ingredients is preferred for anyone dealing with persistent redness or sensitivity issues (Sources: Cosmetic Dermatology, March 2004, pages 171-172; and Cosmetics & Toiletries, October 2003, pages 73-78). Although this fragrance-free moisturizer is not an ideal choice for those dealing with facial redness, it is still a decent option for normal to dry skin. The formula feels lighter than many SPF 30 products, but unfortunately it lacks significant antioxidants or other state-of-the-art ingredients. The sunscreen combination is great, but it doesn't warrant a happy face rating since the base formula isn't state-of-the-art. In addition, the redness-reducing claims are misleading because the formula also contains preservatives that don't have the best track record for someone with sensitive skin.
