Galderma Actinica Lotion

My Review:

It seems like this is classified as a medical device, rather than a cosmetic, so there’s some extra oomph behind this product, as they have evidence showing that it prevented formation of non-melanoma skin cancers. This is VERY thick and moisturizing, making it perfect for drier skin, but it’s difficult to rub in. If I put on a moisturizer under this product, it will NEVER sink into my skin. The pump applicator and attached guide is also INCREDIBLE for knowing how much to apply. A good product, with some good science behind it, but the texture and the glue-like smell knock it down a touch for me..
