Thanks to Beautyfix 4 I recently had the opportunity to try Canyon Ranch Your Transformation SPF30 Protection UVA/UVB Facial Moisturizer. I receive Beautyfix from a PR rep at no cost to me.

It claims that it’s a transformative moisturizer that prevents damage. It’s got broad spectrum protection against UVA/UVB. It also has antioxidants in it.

When I tried it, it seemed like a slightly greasy moisturizer, but it was otherwise ok. Unfortunately, my sensitive skin did not like it at all. After using it once, I started to break out. I continued using it for 3 days before I gave up on it because of having more zits appear. Yuck.

While I’m sure that this moisturizer works well for some people, it doesn’t work for me at all. I would not recommend it based on the slightly greasy feeling I had left on my face after I applied it.

Have you tried Canyon Ranch moisturizer? If so, what did you think of it?

      Yikes! Thank goodness you were able to try it out first…if I spent 75 dollars on something that would make me break out, boy would I feel awful.

      I have very sensitive skin. Duing the completely stress free moments in my life, things are great. But since most days aren;t like that, I usually have patches of eczema scattered about on really bad days, and a bit of acne breakouts on "ehhh" days.

      For the past couple of days I've been trying out Aubrey Organics "vegecol" moisturizer on my face. So far no problems, but if you have really dry skin I wouldn't suggest it; it absorbs really quickly. I haven't tried it out long enough though to be able to tell if it'll sooth or aggravate my skin in the long run, but at 10 dollars I feel it's worth a try.

      Hi Bloated Ewe :)
      To be clear, I received it in my Beautyfix, which I receive at no cost from a PR rep. I did not purchase it.

      I just expected that since it's a $75 moisturizer it would be amazing, and it is not amazing for me.

      My $12 Garnier Anti Sun Damage with vitamin C and SPF 28 is really great for my skin, doesn't feel oily, etc.

      Is the Vegecol moisturizer one with SPF?

      Right now, I use the Body Shop's Vitamin C Skin Boost, which is an awesome gel as a daily for my skin and then I put the Garnier SPF 28 moisturizer on over that.
