All of Desert Essence’s products use sustainably sourced, natural ingredients, and are also cruelty free and vegetarian. Many of their products are also vegan.
Desert Essence Gentle Nourishing Day Cream SPF 15 is a natural moisturizer. It is free of gluten, parabens, artificial dyes and fragrances, sls, and phthalates. This moisturizer provides hydration for dry and sensitive skin, making it softer and smoother. It contains argan oil for moisture, aloe vera to soothe skin, white tea extract to strengthen the skin moisture barrier, and mineral sunscreen to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
I have really grown to love this moisturizer. This is the first Desert Essence product I’ve used. At first I wasn’t really sure if I was going to like it. Squeezed straight from the tube it’s very thick and creamy. When you first apply it to your skin it’s very white from the mineral sunscreen, but once it’s absorbed it’s completely transparent. It’s very moisturizing, which is great for winter. It hasn’t caused any breakouts or irritation at all. After using it for a few weeks my skin has become much clearer and more radiant, like I’ve been getting a lot of sleep. It’s a little pricey, but the quality is excellent. If you have sensitive, dry, or acne prone skin I would definitely recommend this moisturizer. I definitely look forward to trying/reviewing more products from Desert Essence.
