I have been having a great experience with a facial sunscreen from Neutrogena. Ageless Restoratives Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 offers sun protection in conjunction with skin calming soy extract, vitamin E and feverfew. It's a new favorite in my skin care regimen.
There has been a subtle name and packaging change since the product arrived in early October. I am including an updated image from PR. The photo with the flower is my own.
Living in a major city, I appreciate the benefits of antioxidants in skin care. A daily moisturizer clinically proven to neutralize 99% of free radicals is a necessary protection against skin damage due to pollution in the environment.
In the winter months, the SPF 20 in Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturizer offers the perfect level of protection against damaging UVA/UVB rays. In the summer, I prefer a daily sun protection of SPF 30 to protect my fair skin. Neutrogena Healthy Defense is my first choice in warmer weather.
The oil free formula is light in texture and works well under makeup. The lotion absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling supple and hydrated. As much as I value Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturizer for the essential sun protection, I appreciate how radiant my skin looks after application. It's a useful treatment product as well.

Moisturizers containing soy extract tend to bring a glow to my complexion. It's no wonder as soy offers the antioxidant vitamins A, B, E and C. Another positive effect of soy is it's ability to help even skin tone and minimize blotchiness. When confronting the onset of cold weather with fair and sensitive skin, I truly value soy as an ingredient.
There is also Vitamin E for additional anti-oxidant protection and skin healing.
Feverfew, an herbal perhaps best known for its use with migraine patients, benefits the skin as well. Feverfew is reported to calm redness and irritation. It helps defend skin against free radicals that cause cellular damage.
If you are looking for a protective facial moisturizer that will guard against pre-mature aging and improve skin tone, Anti-Oxidant Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 is one of my favorites. I highly recommend it.
