Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Review

Save For Later

(Last Updated On: February 26, 2019)

This weekend it was finally warm enough to start walking the dog outside again. The snow melted, and it was up a “balmy” 40 degrees!

She absolutely loves her walks, and I need the exercise!

However, feeling the warm sun on my face reminded me its time to get more vigilant about sun protection. I generally avoid sunscreen for 3 reasons

1. Extra Step in my morning routine
2. They tend to be greasy
3. The smell!

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Review
Aveeno Says:Superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while hydrating skin to keep it soft, smooth, and naturally healthy looking. For use on face and body, this exclusive formula is fast absorbing, oil-free, noncomedogenic, and sweat and water resistant for 80 minutes”

I really like that it is both a moisturizer and sunscreen. It only takes a few extra seconds, and it absorbs quickly.


Also, less product on my skin translates to less oiliness. It didn’t make me oily at all, not even in my T-zone! In fact, it worked just as well as my Clinique Stay Matte Hydrator is keeping me matte for 8 hours.

Finally, it had a very light oatmeal scent which I much prefer to coconut.

Best for: Those with sensitive skin with a rushed morning routine
