Innoxa Skin Sensitive SPF 15 Moisturiser review.
This was an Innoxa moisturiser I bought from Trade Me, but I believe they can be bought at Farmers, too. I’ve wanted to try their products for a while, they do not test on animals, and seem to be a trusted brand.
This is Skinsensitive – Daily Moisture Protection SPF 15 for sensitive skin. The package states it is 100% fragrance free, ‘dermatologically tested’, and with ‘allergy tested sunscreen.”‘. Nice, simple packaging, see?
All the ingredients are on the packet, and the tube too.
I must say, though, that statements such as ‘allergy tested sunscreen’ scream of psuedo-science to me, which is one of my pet hates. It could mean that the Innoxa team have tested this on many people and found it to be low-allergenic to the majority of them, or it could mean nothing at all. Without a backup to the statement, it’s just marketing. Another example – on the back of the package …
What does that mean? It forms a special sheild? Or because it is a lotion it AUTOMATICALLY provides a thin, temporary, physical barrier and so they can get away with this statement? I, for one, would dearly like to know.
However, rant over! This is a lovely light lotion, it has a light scent that may be from the fruit waters, but nothing perfumed. It absorbs very quickly. My skin feels soft afterwards, so thats good! It doesn’t make a good base for make-up, but if you don’t wear foundation (as I don’t unless I’m going out in the evenings) it’s just fine.
And, it did seem to be gentle on my skin, which has been acting sensitive lately. Sheesh, harden up, skin!! So I do like this, despite the marketing, the jury is still out whether I will get more, when this has finished, or continue on my search
