Review: Moogoo SPF 15 Anti-Ageing Face Cream

Sunscreen is the single most important product in your beauty bag arsenal when it comes to anti-ageing. It is important to get your RDI of vitamin D from the sun (which many people don't get), but once you have got your Vit D, slather this product on your face. 
I have been using this product daily since receiving the (very generous) sample with my Moogoo order (the other contents I have reviewed here. I have very strict (and almost unrealistic) expectations when it comes to sunscreen:
Has to be a physical sunscreen (Zinc or Titanium Dioxide). Has to have totally clean ingredients. Can't break my face out. Can't dry my face out either. Can't turn my face into a pool of oily greasiness. And has to protect my skin from the elements (aka prevent sunburn). And I have to say, Moogoo's SPF 15 ticks all the boxes for me. 


























Also, the ingredients are amazing. Check them out: Aqua, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Zinc Oxide, Squalene (Olive), Coco-Caprylate (Coconut Based Conditioner), Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetearyl Alcohol, Rubus Idaeus (Red Raspberry) Seed Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Standardised Green Tea ECGC), Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate (Stabilized Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Mel (Honey), Acetum (Apple Cider Vinegar), Piroctone Olamine, Allantoin, Caffeine, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Extract, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract.

I have been applying this product to my face in the mornings after I shower. It is quite thick, and you may think that it isn't going to spread well across the face, but it softens with the warmth of your skin and rubs in quite easily. The cream isn't pure white, it is more of a very light tan colour, which I think prevents some of the whiteness that physical sunscreens can cause.

I can't attest to the anti-ageing claim they make, as I am only young and don't have wrinkles per say, but I can say that during my use of this product, the dehydration lines on my forehead seem less noticeable. Also my skin glows. And not in a 'physical sunscreen shiny' way, in a 'you have really healthy skin' way. I feel like I am doing my skin a favour when I apply this product, and any product that promises to prevent sun damage has my vote. When I run out of this sample I will definitely be buying the full sized product.

Would I recommend this product: Totally. I would especially recommend it for people with acne-prone skin that have recently transitioned to natural skincare and are freaking out over the lack of harsh acne-targeted products available. Skincare containing zinc oxide has always been amazing for my skin when suffering a breakout. It just seems to extinguish any inflammation.

Price: $34.90. Check out this product.

  1. I found, from applications once a day in the morning to my face, it is certainly great value for money. Started using it early January and still on the same bottle. I would advise against using the deodorant though, did nothing for me and the rosehip oil causes breakouts that i am still recovering from a month later. The cow lick lip balm is great, while the sunscreen one smells nice it has a thick texture.

    1. Thanks for your honest opinions on those products! I agree that the sunscreen does last a long time. Have you found a great natural deodorant that you recommend? Funny how some believe rosehip oil is great for acne, and others believe it causes acne. I haven't used straight rosehip oil on my skin since my pre-acne days (sigh), so I can't comment.
