Prana SpaCeuticals Purifying Day Lotion SPF 30

Size: 1.7oz (59 ml)

Prana SpaCeuticals Purifying Day Lotion SPF 30 moisturizes and protects while leaving a clean, matte appearance and preventing blemishes. This all-around product is sure to be a go-to favorite for those with oily or acne-prone skin, easily worn alone or under makeup without looking chalky or shiny. Both strong enough to hydrate during the dry winter months and smoothing enough to prevent shine during humid summers, you can feel confident that your skin is flawless and defended against damaging sunrays. Reviewed and approved by a member of the Truth In Aging community, you can be sure that this SPF lotion will leave your skin clear and matte throughout the year.

The formula combines micronized Zinc Oxide with natural ingredients such as green tea, grape seed extract, Chamomile, and hyaluronic acid to protect and soothe sensitive skin without the use of parabens. With Prana, you can keep your skin and your conscience clear – all of their products are cruelty-free and feature eco-friendly botanical extracts sourced from organic farms. Apply on cleansed and dried skin in the morning and apply any desired makeup after the moisturizer has set. Reapply as needed for full sun protection. If you’re still looking for that perfect SPF moisturizer that combats shine and breakouts, you’ll adore this clever little lotion. 

Tested for 30 days and recommended by Linda B.:
I was chosen to test Prana Spacueticals Purifying Day Lotion SPF 30 about a month ago. Living in Florida, a daily moisturizer which works fine during the winter months is often ineffective for those hot, steamy summers, which seem to arrive earlier and stay longer every year. Luckily, Purifying Day Lotion got to demonstrate its performance under both conditions.

I'm in my 60s and as I have (gracefully) aged, my once oily-all-over face has concentrated its gushiness in just one spot: my super-shiny nose. Any daily moisturizer must provide the moisture my skin requires, as well as mattifying, oil-absorbing ingredients for the aforementioned nose, a high SPF, and some skin-soothing botanicals for my tendency toward sensitivity. Check, check and check.

Purifying Day Lotion has been put to the test under all weather conditions and the ultimate challenge: under makeup, which is where most mattifying day lotions tend to fall short. I put it to the test under liquid foundation, powdered mineral make-up and CC cream. The winner was liquid foundation that included an oil-absorbing component. It held up til the end of the work day, which is better than can be said for other daytime moisturizers making the same claims. I also noted that it didn’t tend to dry-out the non-oily areas like my cheeks and forehead.

The ingredients are particularly impressive, with the first on the list being a micro form of zinc oxide, which I’ve long known tends to fight against oil while giving sun protection (an impressive SPF 30 here). Following zinc is a host of soothing botanicals like grapeseed oil (to fight and prevent break-outs), hyaluronic acid (think moisture binder), and green tea extract. Cutting-edge skincare companies, like Prana, seem to be showing us we can expect effective skincare without all the mad scientist ingredients; just natural elements that do what they say. I like that.

Prana Purifying Day Lotion was put through my toughest paces and exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this product to anyone who has very oily skin, lives in a hot and humid climate, needs a daily SPF, likes botanical ingredients, and/or has breakout-prone skin. Will definitely buy this!

    I have been searching for the perfect sunscreen for years, and this is by far the absolute best I have ever tried. Every other moisturizer with SPF feels heavy on my skin and leaves me with that dreaded forehead shine, but Prana feels weightless on my face. It's that perfect combination of matte, hydrating protection that I've been looking for. I use it every day now - even during the cold winter months - and I can't imagine living without it now!
