The Little Bird Said…Cheap Cheap Cheap….Let’s Talk About Moisturizers

Sometimes I like to just wear my moisturizer for the day. If I don’t plan to leave the house, I’ll apply moisturizer and give my face a needed break from the rest of my makeup routine, which includes another higher SPF creme.

In the past I used Estee Lauder’s Daywear Anti-oxidant Creme SPF15, but I have to admit that I really didn’t like paying $50 for 1.7 oz. I really do like its consistency, and I really do believe wearing an anti-oxidant with sunscreen is very important for my skin.


Last winter, though, I made a very good discovery when I ran out of my Daywear and had to make do with a drugstore brand. I found Lumene’s Bright Now Vitamin C Cream SPF15. It, too, is a daily moisturizer with built-in antioxidants and UV protection.


For my winter skin, I liked it even better than Daywear. It had a creamier consistency. My skin is drier in the winter, but best of all I bought it for less than $20. Now that is a savings, especially since it is 1.7 oz just like Daywear.

Summers in Florida are quite humid, so I’m back using my Estee Lauder Daywear; but this winter I will go use Lumene Bright Now Cream, again. Both formulas promise to protect against signs of aging and to safeguard my skin, but Lumene’s Bright Now keeps my face from drying out longer and I save $30.

I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a good deal! And all of you know how cheap I am.

I’m always looking for a good bargain. Any of you found one lately? If so, please share!
