In an effort to simply my summer skincare routine I decided to give the Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 45 Daily Moisturizer a try. I wanted something to defend against the harmful sun but which would not make me look even greasier than necessary in the humid summer months. I loved that this was a very high SPF of 45. Most facial moisturizers are about 15 and that's really too low. I also loved that this came in a flat, squeezable foundation like tube. The little nozzle on it made it quite easy to portion out exactly the amount I needed to use and I wasn't left with extra on my hands that went to waste. I used this successfully for a month or so in the spring but once the weather started getting hot and humid it just wasn't the solution I needed. I found that it still left my skin with a beautiful, soft feel but that it was just too potent for use in the summer and resulted in a rather greasy look. So, for the other eight or nine months of the year when there is no nasty heat and humidity I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product but it really is not designed for summer use.
