Daily Moisture Lightweight Pore-Minimizing Moisturizer, for Normal or Oily Combination Skin begins well with its water-based blend of several species of algae and a light moisturizing agent, but all in all this contains too many potentially problematic plant extracts to make it a slam-dunk for normal to oily skin. Algae extracts cannot make pores smaller, but the cinnamon and ginger may make them appear smaller by virtue of the inflammation they cause—yet that’s a negative for the long-term health of your skin.

Brand Overview

SkinCeuticals At-A-Glance

With a strong presence in the professional (meaning spa and aesthetics) skincare market, SkinCeuticals has a mostly well-deserved reputation for producing serious-minded, research-driven products, several of which are centered on L-ascorbic acid (a form of vitamin C).

There are many good reasons to shop this line; it boasts a lineup up impressive vitamin C products, as well as some good retinol options and sunscreens. Even better is that the majority of its anti-aging products are packaged in containers that will protect their contents from light and air. Focusing on what Skinceuticals does best (which is serums, sunscreens, and specialty products) will be money well spent for visible results. The main drawbacks of this line are some products that contain fragrance ingredients, as well as potentially-drying alcohol, though they represent the minority of the brand’s offerings.
