I had the opportunity to try Flawless Skin, Oil-Free Day Lotion SPF 15 by Laura Mercier. This moisturizer offers sun protection along with a variety of skin healing ingredients: sea water, green tea, peptides, collagen, arginine, quince seed extract and vitamin E. Oil-Free Day Lotion works effectively as a sunscreen, moisturizer and skin treatment.
I am impressed by how well the oil free formula hydrates my dry skin. I apply this moisturizer over a serum each morning. Its emollient properties are as effective as richer day cremes. It absorbs almost instantly and keeps my skin smooth to the touch long into the evening.
Oil-Free Day Lotion works beautifully under make-up. I have no trouble using concealer and powder shortly after applying this moisturizer. The consistency of the lotion is light and it massages into the skin easily. It's quick absorption makes it a useful product to help streamline my morning routine.
I appreciate how healthy my skin appears after using Oil-Free Day Lotion. Fine lines are diminished and my skin texture looks more supple. This moisturizer also produces a cumulative effect. After using Oil-Free Day Lotion for a few weeks, I noticed my skin feels softer and has a more youthful glow and fullness.
The scent of this product is elegant. There is clean and light floral aroma that dissipates shortly after application. The fragrance is so lovely I wish I could wear it as perfume.

While Camellia Sinensis is most commonly associated with a tea cup, the antioxidant effects of green tea are also beneficial when applied topically. Green tea can help fight free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as pollution. Because it helps prevent breakdown in collagen, green tea positively contributes to skin firmness and elasticity.
Oil-Free Day Lotion contains peptides. These active molecules signal the skin to produce more collagen. While peptides are naturally present in the skin, applying them in a lotion can contribute to additional collagen formation. This will help the skin retain a youthful appearance.
Arginine is an amino acid that assists in maintaining healthy connective tissue. Present in the skin, it is known to help heal damaged tissue and promote collagen formation.
Pyrus Sydonia Seed Extract is also known as quince seed. Closely related to apples, quince is a potent anti-oxidant with anti-inflammatory properties.
Many notable, much discussed skin care ingredients are present in this modern style bottle. If you are looking for a quality, boutique moisturizer, Oil-Free Day Lotion would make a worthy splurge.
