Boots No7 Advanced Hydration Day Cream

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2.5 stars

COST: $14.99 for 1.69 fl. oz.

THE SKINNY: Boots No7 Advanced Hydration Day Cream is just OK. I wasn't wowed by it, and I'm rather blah on its SPF of 12, especially now that it's summer and I'm spending a lot of time outside.

This is a whipped, mousse-like moisturizer with little scent. It goes on smoothly and left my skin feeling like, well, my skin. It's made with shea butter, which leaves it feeling a little thick, especially in warm weather.

I really wanted to like this product -- I think the No7 facial wipes are among the best out there. But a so-so moisturizer with a low SPF just isn't going to impress me or work for me as a full-time daytime moisturizer.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I've found it most useful in the evening, when I take a quick shower after a long workout or game of tennis.

CHECK IT OUT: Read more and see other products in the line (especially those wipes!) online or at your local Target.
