Bioré Dual Fusion Moisturizer SPF 30

Everyone knows sunscreen is super important. Skin cancer is no fun, and sun damage also includes wrinkles, freckles, etc. But finding the optimal sunscreen product(s) for you are pretty freaking hard sometimes. Being super fair you’d think I’d always be hyper conscious of always wearing SPF, right? Err. Sure. I’ll let you think that.

I read some really awesome things about Bioré Dual Fusion Moisturizer on Makeup Alley. I was interested since I have found lots of moisturizers that I love, and even a couple sunscreens that work for me, but had never found a moisturizer with SPF that wasn’t greasy and heavy or broke me out. I’m also allergic to avobenzene, a chemical sunscreen ingredient found in a lot of stuff. CVS had this for 50% off a couple of weeks ago, so I grabbed it right up. So far, very good. Bioré describes Dual Fusion as being formulated for “transitional skin” – skin that is in between the teen acne years and serious anti-aging concerns. Like a newly 24 year old, perhaps? ;)

This moisturizer comes in an interesting and innovative dual-chamber pump bottle that looks like this:

and Bioré says the dual chambered design keeps the moisturizer and the sunscreen separated to “preserve the power of each formula” in order to maximize the effectiveness of each. When you push down on the pump, you get a green liquid and a white liquid, which I mix together in my hand and rub onto my face. I think the green is the moisturizer and the white is the sunscreen, but I have no idea really. ;) I like that they’re different colors so you’re sure to see if you’re getting both. Some users complained that it was hard to get both to come out in equal portions. I haven’t found this to be the case, but Bioré recommends tapping the bottle on a hard surface (like a counter top) to settle the product when this occurs. 
The thing I appreciate most about this moisturizer is how cosmetically elegant it is. How many times have you tried a moisturizer or sunscreen and had it be too heavy, too greasy, take forever to absorb, or even had it ball up under your makeup? Gross. No fun at all. It’s no wonder so many women slack off when it comes to their sun protection with results like that, right? You will have none of those problems with Dual Fusion. The thin, almost watery consistency absorbs like lightening and makeup applies like a dream over it! It also doesn’t have that kinda icky, chemically “sunscreen smell” that we’re all so fond of. Like the other Bioré products I’ve tried, it smells lightly fruity. 
I’m really enjoying this product so far. It seems to be getting along with my skin. Usually after a couple of weeks I can tell if something is going to work for me, and this seems like the beginning to a beautiful relationship. ;)
