Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate

Press Sample, AmbassadorAveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion is an interesting product. I’ve used many different sunscreens and sunblocks in my quest to find the perfect sun care for my skin, but until sampling Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion, I had never encountered a sunscreen that actually feels exactly like body lotion. In fact, this product feels so much like a typical after-shower body lotion, and absorbs so quickly, I almost doubted it’s ability to protect the skin from sun damage!

MSRP is $9.99 for Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion in SPF 30 and SPF 50.  MSRP is $10.99 in SPF 70.

Retailers include Amazon.com, Target.com, and Drugstore.com.  Click HERE to read more about it at Aveeno!
