It's trite and true, you don't know what you've got 'till its gone. For the better part of the summer I tested ddf's protect and correct uv moisturizer spf 15 and I never once got the beauty butterflies over it. My skin looked decent but the bland silver dispenser and unscented semi-heavy cream didn't sweep me off my feet. At all. I stuck it out in the name of beauty editing fidelity - that and the inescapably sticky reality that it was, after all, summer - and a little extra SPF never hurts. Then I moved to SF. Then the reason I moved to SF fell apart and in my hurried flight back home to NC I left my DDF. I know - it's an alphabetical odyssey of beauteous proportions .
Then I cried. A lot. I am terribly happy to be home but I'm terribly sad I left my DDF and some other invaluable beauty products in SF. Products that have memory and meaning and yes, I'm entirely too attached to my products. In retrospect here is what I love about ddf's protect and correct uv moisturizer spf 15. 1) It is reliable, delivering every promise plainly printed upon it's packaging. 2) Nary a blackhead grew during the entirety of said beauty odyssey 3) I'm usually a sucker for sparkly bells and whistles but the beauty of this product lays quietly within the formula itself- a real scientist's product that slowly improved every aspect of my skin. 4) It's the marrying type - although not extremely impressive at first glace, it gets sweeter with every encounter.
