Before applying this light cream, wash your face with Befine’s moisture-enhancing Gentle Cleanser.

Birchbox Breakdown

Between hitting the snooze button and deliberating over our wardrobe options, our mornings always seem to turn into a fire drill. But no matter how rushed we are, we always find time to load up on this feather-light hydrator, which works for all skin types. Made with vegetable proteins and essential oils, the paraben-free formula also includes SPF 15 to protect skin from the UV rays that lead to premature aging. On top of that, we can also use it as a protective hand cream.

How it Works

The rosemary and pomegranate extracts in this day cream are full of antioxidants that defend against pollutants, free radicals, and other skin enemies. Rice extracts boost moisture levels and improve skin’s elasticity. Finally, two skin-safe sunscreens—octinoxate and avobenzone—keep skin protected against the sun.

How to Use

Apply to clean skin every morning. Smooth a thin layer of moisturizer onto your face, neck, and chest 15 to 20 minutes before you head outside. Layer under makeup, or wear alone.

Key Ingredients:
Rosemary Leaf Oil, Pomegranate Extract, Safflower Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Rice protein.

Brine moisturizer

I didn't lie the smell or the consistency of this reduction. It was light and has good SPF quality. It just wasn't for me.

Not the same as the sample

I know the sample packages were expired...and maybe that made the product better for me...the samples were so rich and moisturizing, great for dry skin or climate. So I ordered a full bottle, and it smelled totally different - very herb-ey (sage?). The smell was nice, but the product was thinner and not as good of a moisturizer. I will continue to use the facial scrub, which was awesome (and unfortunately no longer available on this site), but this moisturizer was a disappointment.

love

This moisturizer is light and perfect for summer skin care routine. Such a pleasant smell! The SPF is great and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

Bland moisturizer

This moisturizer definitely did not mix well with my terribly greasy t-zone, mots likely because of its essential oil ingredients. Not so bad as a hand cream though, which is exactly what I used it for just so it wouldn't go to waste.

Winter Moisturizer

I have tried this product in the summer and in the winter, and it's definitely a product better suited for winter. It felt very heavy on my skin and somewhat greasy. It took away the dry skin, but left me with a few blemishes.

Super Calming

This is a great moisturizer. I normally don't like the smell of SPF but this product has a fresh scent that doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin.

Nice consistency

I really love this moisturizer because all too often the SPFs are thick and white and ruin my make-up. This one was light and colorless with a strong odor. I love it.

love it!

i love everything about this moisturizer: the smell, the bottle, the fact that it has (just a little) spf! it also isn't too heavy, but really helps with dry skin. I have combination skin and this is perfect for both my oily and dry areas.

Bought this product for the boyfriend

I had received samples of this product right before heading to Vancouver Island. My boyfriend had forgotten his sunscreen, so I handed him a sample of this. He loved it! He has very sensitive skin, and likes this because it does not bother his skin, nor does it smell like sunscreen.

Red head approved!

I'm always on the hunt for products with sunscreen that aren't overly thick and don't smell like sunscreen - and this product matches both of the criteria! This moisturizer isn't heavy, soaks into my skin fast and I LOVE the smell! Also, I find that some products with sunscreen can break my face out or give me a rash (doh! sensitive skin!) but this product does no such thing.
