Product Review: Biore Dual Fusion Moisturizer + SPF 30, B-

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Up for review today is Biore Dual Fusion Moisturizer. I wanted to give this little puppy a try as it hosts SPF 30 - a must for the summer sun! Biore gives you 1.7 ounces for $13.99.

Details from

Hydrates & defends by moisturizing and delivering UVA/UVB protection. With Botanamide™ technology.

This unique technology was designed to mimic skin's own natural ceramides, which are a critical part in maintaining skin's strength and moisturization. Ceramides reinforce the essential barrier of your skin, preventing dryness, roughness and fine lines.

  • Oil-free
  • Non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypo-allergenic

91% of women felt their skin was fresh & hydrated after just one use, and 87% noticed an improvement in the appearance of their skin after just 1 week.

Created specifically for "Transitional Skin", skin that's between teenage acne and serious anti-aging, theses products detoxify & nourish to improve and protect your skin.

Biore® dual fusion™ moisturizer + SPF 30, delivers a unique blend of high UV protection and weightless hydration to simultaneously defend and strengthen transitional skin. The special double-chambered package preserves the efficacy and potency of both the SPF protection and the silky, non-greasy moisturization properties. Featuring Biore® Botanamide™ technology, a ceramide-based technology with botanicals and natural antioxidants, it improves dryness, fine lines and uneven skin tone. Transparent SPF 30 provides broad spectrum protection to minimize the effects of daily UV exposure, the #1 cause of accelerated aging.

My review:

The Good: As mentioned previously - SPF 30 is a big deal. I really feel that all face lotion/mosturizers should contain this degree of SPF. It's a very lightweight moisturizer - I would imagine it would work very well for those with combo or oily skin.

The Bad: This little lotion has two pumps - one for lotion and one for sunscreen, and they routinely get stuck. Irritating - but not a deal breaker for me. Also, the lotion is good, not great and considering you only get 1.7 ounces for almost $14 - that seems like a bit hefty of a price tag.

The Verdict: I give this product a B-. While the product itself is a great idea (ladies - you should be wearing a lotion with SPF EVERY DAY), the execution fell a bit short. And it's a wee bit pricey in my book. I don't think I'll be rebuying.

Has anyone out there tried this lotion? Please share your thoughts!
