This ‘light-as-air’ oil-free SPF moisturizer curbs excess oil, reduces visible pores, fades dark spots and protects from sun damage, making it an ideal moisturizer for oily skin.
Fenty Skin is all about offering two products in one. According to the brand, Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer 1.7fl. oz (50ml) is a “2-in-1 moisturizer and sunscreen [that] is lightweight, oil-free, and truly invisible on all skin tones.” So, while you can use Hydra Vizor as a daily moisturizer, it also offers daily SPF protection of 30.
The product’s SPF actives include Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 9%, and Octisalate 4.5%. These ingredients absorb UV radiation, giving your skin round-the-clock protection against sun damage. Unprotected exposure to UV rays is one of the leading causes of hyperpigmentation, especially among melanated skin tones. Therefore, it’s important to always wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to prevent this.
Despite Hydra Vizor containing a high level of SPF, 96% of users confirm that it does not leave a white cast. This makes it ultra wearable alone and under makeup. But, what makes this the perfect moisturizer for oily skin types?
Although it’s formulated to suit all skin types, Hydra Vizor contains essential ingredients necessary to treat oily skin concerns.
It combines the hydrating components of wild Kalahari melon, African Baobab tree and Aloe Vera with actives like Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide. These ingredients work in synergy to hydrate, protect, brighten dark spots and visibly reduce the appearance of pores. These are essentially what makes this moisturizer ideal for oily skin types.
Niacinamide is a powerhouse ingredient that’s oily-skin and acne-prone friendly. It works to remove excess shine and fade hyperpigmentation over time. This helps to ultimately even out the skin tone. A Hydra Vizor customer who identify as having an oily skin type with some unevenness confirm that after 3 weeks, she could see her skin start to “significantly even out.” So, if you have oily skin or acne-prone skin, this is an ingredient that should be a staple in your skincare treatments.
TYPE OF SUNSCREEN: Chemical
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: 3% Avobenzone, 9% Homosalate, 4.5% Octisalate
GOOD TO KNOW: Refillable bottle
In addition to its ingredients, the Hydra Vizor SPF moisturizer is lightweight and oil-free.
A reviewer states that she loves the “silky feeling” on application. Multiple reviews also mention how soft their skin felt after applying the product. For makeup lovers, this is an ideal moisturizer to wear under makeup. 98% of reviews love the seamless way it works with makeup, many of which claim that it doesn’t pill. Excess shine generally reduces the lasting power of makeup. But as Hydra Vizor works to eliminate this, makeup sits much better on top of it.
Hydra Vizor is available in a fragrance-free version if you have sensitive skin. Nevertheless, one customer with sensitive skin applauds the fragranced version, saying that the scent is “light and pleasant” and doesn’t irritate her skin at all. Another customer in the same skin category said that she’d been using the moisturizer for two years, and unlike other products, its effectiveness remained consistent.
With Fenty Skin, Rihanna set out to give maximum quality with every product drop. The Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer is no exception.
Not only is it multi-functional, it’s also clean, vegan, cruelty-free, and gluten-free. That’s because Fenty Skin is on a mission to remain as earth-conscious as possible. Hence, Hydra Vizor comes in a nifty refillable pump bottle to eliminate unnecessary packaging. You can buy the refillable bottle separately as you run out of product.
To conclude, Hydra Vizor Invisible Moisturizer is simply that – invisible. And whilst it is invisible to the eyes, customer reports show that users visibly see and feel its results after multiple uses. The SPF moisturizer is lightweight, oil-free, fast-absorbing, spot-fading, pore-reducing, and UV-protecting. These make it an ideal moisturizer for oily skin babes to wear during the day.
