I recently was sent a tube of Lab Series Skincare for Men’s Daily Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 15. Since I’m well, uh, not a male, I handed the tube to a guy friend for testing.
My friend reports:
The first application was fine and it sunk into my skin quickly. The scent was fine, nothing obnoxious. However, after an hour my skin started to feel tight, dry and scratchy. After a week of use, my skin remained totally unmoisturized and in fact, developed some flaky spots.
I think this lotion would be fine just for SPF coverage alone or if you don’t need any moisture. But for over $35, I’d like it to be more of an actual lotion. It seemed to me like one of those gimmicky formulas that causes you to use it more… a vicious cycle.
There ya go ladies and gents. Not the best-reviewed or performing product. Guys, if you are looking for a face moisturizer, I cannot honestly recommend this one. For quite a bit cheaper, you can pick up some unscented Olay at the drugstore and it should work much better! (As the Bionic Beauty, I’d like to add one aside… to be honest I didn’t think the scent was “fine”. The scent reminded me of Elmer’s Glue.)
Lab Series Daily Moisture Defense Lotion with SPF 15 is available at Beauty.com for $37.50 a 3.4 ounce tube.
