The Perfect Moisturizer, Rain Or Shine

{by} Sasha | Crows' Feet, Cupcakes, and Cellulite

As a beauty writer I’m constantly testing moisturizers, many of which leave me underwhelmed or tediously combining multiple products in order to get a “complete” moisturizer. (You should see me slather on the SPF post moisturizing step. I’ll be damned if any of my wrinkles will come from the sun. Wrinkles caused by smiling: no problem. Wrinkles caused by UV rays: not on my watch.) Well, I recently stumbled upon skincare maker Likewise whose hard-working products are designed to provide all-encompassing daily skincare, in a single tube. (A moisturizer that does it all? My never-ending beauty regimin just got a little shorter. Nice.)

The beauty 411: Likewise skincare products are formulated to help you put your best face forward every day (literally). They make products geared toward your specific skin type (e.g. oily or combination) as well as protecting your skin from harmful elements while also delivering anti-aging compounds. (Now that’s what I call a hard-working moisturizer.) Likewise offers three different types of moisturizers: oily, normal-to-oily, and normal-to-dry. Not sure what your skin type is? No problem. Here’s a complete run-down of the various skin types that will help you quickly sum up your type.

Why you’ll love it: This over-achieving moisturizer is truly an all-in-one product. Likewise moisturizer not only hydrates your skin but also contains a big dose of SPF (50) as well as sunlight-reflecting zinc oxide – all of which protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. And for those of us who constantly have to worry about products that can cause acne or enlarged pores, Likewise’s moisturizer is noncomedogenic (which means it won’t clog pores). This moisturizer also contains an acne-controlling ingredient (azelaic acid) as well as anti-aging antioxidants. When I first reviewed Likewise’s long list of benefits I automatically assumed it would likely have a thick, greasy texture. To the contrary! Likewise is the first true moisturizer + SPF I’ve found that provides the perfect amount of moisture (sans the oily factor you sometimes get from moisturizers that contain high SPF).

So, skincare enthusiasts, if you’re looking for a moisturizer that’s tailored toward your specific skincare needs or simply want an all-encompassing moisturizer, you might want to check Likewise out.

Premature aging from sun exposure? Not with this hard-working moisturizer. Bring on the sunshine-filled get-togethers, alfresco style …

Thanks, Ali! Yeah, I really love this moisturizer. I tend to be prone to acne if a moisturizer is oily/greasy and ones with high SPF usually are. But this moisturizer not only helps prevent acne but it's not greasy at all! And the zinc oxide and SPF ingredients protect me from the sun. It's def my new fave moisturizer!
