I ran into Walgreens several days ago and came across a Borba display that had some skincare options and supplements. I don’t think the items are new however they are new to me.
I’m not sure if it’s exclusive to Walgreens or if other drugstores will carry the collection but compared to other Borba skincare products they were priced at an affordable $17.99-$19.99.
I’ve personally never tried any of Borba’s skincare in the past and I think a combination of the cheaper price tag and the promise of a whooping SPF 100+ had me running to the cash register with my booty.
Today I’ll be taking a look at the Borba Age Defying Super Creme SPF 100+.
An anti-aging moisturizer that includes an intensely high level of SPF.
I’ve had moisturizers and SPF’s that include an SPF of 30, 40, 50, and even 80….but I’ve never actually used a product or even seen one with one that had an SPF 100+. Pretty impressive eh?
Borba Age Defying Super Creme boasts a hefty SPF of 100+ so not only does it protect your skin from the sun but also protects it from sunburn. On top of the sun protection the formula also includes an age defying blend of acai berry, elastin, flaxseed, and argan oil to quench the signs of premature aging caused by free radicals. Vitamins A, C, E, B6, B12, Niacinamide, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, and Zinc give skin a certain vitality.
For something with such a high level of SPF the texture of the moisturizer is outstanding. I felt the formula was nice and creamy but not greasy or oily as some moisturizers are known to be with SPF included. The product absorbs easily and leaves my face smooth without looking shiny or feeling heavy. The moisturizer sports a subtle berry fragrance as well which I thought was quite pleasant.
It is affordable at $19.99 however the tube is small at 1.7 oz but I appreciate the smaller size since it does expire within six months.
As many of you know it’s not necessarily how high the SPF is but how much you’re applying. SPF 30 is perfectly equate sun protection so long as you are applying enough of it particularly if you’re in the sun for longer periods of time. I do admit that I like the idea of my daily moisturizing containing a high level of SPF regardless….
The product does have separation issues so I have to shake it prior to each use to keep everything mixed up well.
- Those with fair skin (this will protect your skin against sunburn).
- Those seeking an affordable daily moisturizer with a high SPF.
- Those who live in warm, sunny environments that are subjected to the sun daily.
- Those who want a lightweight moisturizer without a heavy, greasy feel that contains SPF.
- Doubt anyone can find fault here!
Overall, count me impressed….the level of sun protection versus the lightweight formula that doesn’t have a greasy feel or leave a pale cast to my skin is well worth it’s weight in gold. I was very impressed with the formula and felt it was one of the better moisturizers with SPF that I’ve tried in a long time. I normally apply SPF separate from my daily moisturizer but it sure is nice to not have to worry about that since this contains plenty of SPF. My skin is drier at the moment so I will say I did need a BIT more hydration but since I’ll be using this more in the Summer as a daily moisturizer it’ll probably be just right since I tend to have oilier skin in the warmer weather.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive moisturizer with a higher level of SPF I’d suggest checking this out!
Anyone try it?
