Bargain beauty find: Yes to Grapefruit Correct and Repair Even SkinTone Moisturizer

Note: This is an unsolicited, uncompensated review of a product that I found on my own and purchased myself. Amazon Affiliate links are included so that you can find out more about the product. 

I always wear a lightweight moisturizer with SPF, summer and winter.  I have sensitive skin, so I need a product that doesn't irritate my skin For a while, I was using DDF Weightless Defense Oil-Free Hydrator UV Moisturizer SPF 45, but at $55 for a small (1.7-ounce) container, I thought it was overpriced. And I also didn't like that DDF is one of the companies that still does animal testing. I also tried (and loved) My Beauty Bunny's Cruelty-Free Moisturizer (developed by a fellow blogger), but my tube ran out pretty quickly and I was looking for something I could buy off the shelf.

The My Beauty Bunny product had a light citrus scent, so when I saw Yes to Grapefruit Even Skin Tone Moisturizer SPF 15 on the shelf at my local Kroger (in the Natural Foods section), I decided to give it a try. I think it was close to the $15.99 list price there, which seemed reasonable.

Some of the best things about the product are what it is formulated without:
  • 97% Natural
  • SPF 15
  • Petroleum, SLS, & Paraben Free
  • Cruelty-free
I like the lightweight texture and the light grapefruit scent. Unfortunately, the product is not fragrance-free (I thought it was) but I don't seem to be sensitive to it. My skin randomly gets red and rashy in reaction to certain products.  I have never figured out what specific ingredient my skin is sensitive to, but because I tend to react more to very inexpensive products, maybe the ingredient is a petroleum-based fragrance?

I have noticed my skin clearing up and looking brighter when I use this product regularly. I have some small brown spots that I have probably gotten from all those years before I started using sunscreen, and those seem to have faded a little.

I took a photo of the ingredients list you can also find it on the product website.  You can also get a $3 off coupon to use in-store there.

I'm always looking for great new beauty finds, so feel free to let me know in the comments if you have a favorite product I should try.
