Here’s a moisturizer of the moment that feels like a breath of fresh air. The Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel Cream (2 oz for $37) is just simply the kind of moisturizer you’d want to have in this warming weather. It feels lightweight and very invigorating, especially with its fresh and subtle green tea scent.
It’s a gel-cream formula that’s not only oil-free, but it also acts as an antioxidant and anti-pollutant, thus allowing the skin to breathe. With the added Spf 30, this moisturizer will protect your skin any time of the day. On top of that, It doesn’t feel sticky and it gets absorbed easily within seconds.
The formula is very hydrating and it spreads into the skin easily. No need to put a lot. It’s one of those moisturizers that are multitaskers and the kind that anyone with a combination, oily-prone, or even dry skin will need to have in their purses. This is so versatile and it saves you the time of applying additional sun protectors on the face. You can also definitely wear your favorite non-Spf foundation with this too.
Somehow, there’s a few things that irked me about this moisturizer, even though it’s almost perfect from its texture down to its scent. I noticed that the formula is quite runny so it tends to spill easily if you’re not careful when opening the cap. Also, the tube is made of a very thin plastic that it squeezes out the product very easily. I also noticed that mine came with almost half of the tube empty. It’s like there’s not enough product in there. It’s a pity because I really love the formulation of this moisturizer, especially nowadays that it’s kinda hard to find a lightweight moisturizer with good amounts of Spf in it.
Overall, I’d still purchase this moisturizer and I recommend it to you all. I think you won’t be disappointed with this, just take heed of the few downsides and I’m pretty sure you’ll love this a lot just like I do.
The Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Oxygenating Gel-Cream is a limited edition product and available at QVC, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Birchbox, Ulta & Sephora
