I’ve Found My Holy Grail SPF Moisturizer!

Since I delved into the green beauty scene a few years back, one of my most exhaustive searches was (“Was!” Did you read that?) for a facial moisturizer with SPF. You guys, that is one tough category. Finding a natural sunscreen that doesn’t look greasy or white or too heavy on the face isn’t the easiest job.

I had settled on Suntegrity’s facial sunscreen, which I must say, is a great one for long days at the pool or outside (it’s my sunny vacation go-to), but I always felt like it was just a bit too heavy for everyday wear. And of course, I want to wear sunscreen on my face every day…I mean, hello 42, not getting any younger and all that.

Well, cue the clouds parting and angels singing because I have found The One. The Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30 by Josh Rosebrook. You guys, I can’t even explain how great this moisturizer is. It doesn’t feel at all like a sunscreen. Just the perfect amount of moisture with a matte finish on the face. No white-ish cast, no greasiness, nothing but goodness. And the scent! It’s divine. Look at the ingredients.

Active Ingredient: 12% Non-Nano, Uncoated, Micronized Zinc Oxide

*Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, *Shea Butter, *Evening Primrose Oil, *Hemp Seed Oil, *Jojoba Oil, *Borage Seed Oil, *Almond Oil, *Grape Seed Oil, *Sesame Oil, *Avocado Oil, *Olive Oil, *Sea Buckthorn Oil, *Broccoli Oil, *Calendula, *Bilberry, *Chamomile, *Burdock, *Rosemary, *Fennel, *Dandelion, *Rose Hips, *Catnip, *Chickweed, *Neem, *Skullcap, *Ginkgo Leaf, *Linden Flower, *Hawthorn Berry, *Green Tea, *Flax, *Nettle, *Sage, *Marshmallow Root, *Cayenne, *Ginseng, *Peppermint, *St. John’s Wort, *Alfalfa, *Vitamin E, ‡Candelilla Wax, *Guar Gum, *Gum Arabic, §Xanthan Gum,§Potassium Sorbate, *Benzoin Resin, †Carrot Seed Oil.

Cleaner than clean. I will honestly wear this on my face every morning until the cows come home. (I’m from Oklahoma and still don’t know what that means.)

While we’ve got the whole farm reference thing going, hold your horses. I haven’t told you the best part yet.

Do you remember me telling you about Beauty Heroes? The monthly subscription box with full-sized, luxury, natural products? (It’s only $39 per month and always contains at least $100 of product – it’s the only monthly subscription box I receive, if that says anything…) And on top of receiving the best-of-best products for a steal every month, Beauty Heroes members always get 15% off in the online shop, which has over 30 green beauty brands. It is SO worth 39 dollars a month, I promise you.

Anyway, July’s box contains none other than the holy grail Nutrient Cream and the Vital Balm Cream by Josh Rosebrook. You guys, a $115 value for 39 dollars. If you are considering trying Beauty Heroes out, I highly recommend doing it before July 20th so you can receive these two amazing products. (And truthfully, they will probably sell out before that date. Josh Rosebrook products usually do.)

Everything you could possibly want to know about these two products and Beauty Heroes is here, and please feel free to ask me any questions in the comments!

    I ended up signing up for Beauty Heroes based on your Instagram stories review of this product. I’m just starting down the “green” beauty path and thought that this would be a good way to economically try out different products. I also looked through their historical boxes and really liked what I saw. Plus, I figured that if you were THAT excited about the product it must be good. :)

    I’m really looking forward to receiving it!

      If you are starting your journey, Beauty Heroes is definitely the way to go. Jeannie, the founder, spends so much time researching and curating her picks – they are always on point. I hope you love the JR as much as I do…I think you will!

    Have you used this before receiving in the BH box? Am curious about how long you test products before reviewing/promoting them.

      I received this in mid-June and have used it every morning for a couple weeks. I waited to see if any issues would arise, but honestly, I could tell I loved it from day one. (Plus, I use many other products by Josh Rosebrook and am extremely confident in his ingredients and performance.)

    Is this what you would use on your face if you were at the pool or the beach for the day? Would you just reapply after a few hours?

      I usually use Suntegrity on my face for beach days (I linked to it in the post), although you could definitely use Josh Rosebrook too.

    I just bought this on the weekend after seeing your post on Instagram. I have been making the shift to Green Beauty and was looking for a moisturizer for every day and hopefully one that has higher than 15. I was happy to see this one is a 30. I’ve only used it for 2 days but so far so good!
    Unrelated to this one – I also delved into the RMS beauty products and am in love. I bought the living luminizer and lip2cheek and both are amazing. I often come to your site for product recommendations so keep them coming! I appreciate your views!
