SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream Review

I have found a wonderful new way to protect my face when I go outdoors this summer and it's called SmartShield Rehydrating Cream and it has an SPF of 45!
You will also be happy to know that it's oil free so you won't look greasy when you put it on. I know I have tried sunscreens in the past that did this, so I know that this is something that most any woman would agree with. This wonderful face cream is sweat resistant, and provides UVA/UVB Protection. It is great for use under your make-up. I used to have a major problem with sunscreens that would make my makeup cake up and flake off which is why I had quit wearing sunscreen but with SmartShield, I don't have to worry about that anymore!
SmartShields oil-free, "dry" formula means the sunscreen is absorbed instantly. It does not wear on top of skin; it actually bonds to the skin. This sunscreen formula has no noticeable "sunscreen feel", even after multiple applications. It is also hypoallergenic which makes it safe for all skin types and dermatologist-approved. With regular use of this product, you may actually be helping to prevent cancer, wrinkles, and premature skin aging.
The lotion is really lightweight and easy to spread, it doesn't take a lot, so use sparingly until you figure out how much you need for your face and neck. You will be happy to know that this face cream also has Vitamin A, E & C included in the ingredients. You will need to apply at least 20 minutes before exposure to the sun, whether alone or under makeup for the best protection.

The Aloe Vera acts as a penetrating agent, which pulls the sunscreen into the skin for hours of effectiveness. SmartShield is immediately absorbed into the skin rather than blocking or clogging the pores. All of our products are hypoallergenic, PABA Free, and DEET Free. They are safe for all skin types and are dermatologist-recommended. They also won't stain your clothes or sting your eyes like other sunscreen's that I have tried in the past. I hate when that happens because it looks like I am crying all the time!
About SmartShield:
Les Leonard and his wife Jane were introduced to SmartShield Sunscreen in 2009, they quickly saw the untapped business opportunities and committed to the SmartShield brand as investors. As a key partner Les Leonard was able to put a fresh face on the brand introducing brighter packaging, a fresh website and full public relations campaign. He also expanded the product line and dedicated time and dollars to grow the brand’s visibility with men.  
The Men's Visibility Initiative included a sponsorship with PGA player, Rory Sabbatini and an aggressive presence within the PGA through advertising and sampling. His instinct paid off and SmartShield’s Sunscreen is now the #1 sunscreen used on the PGA tour. In 2013  the Leonard’s investment group jumped in as the new owners of SmartShield.Under new management SmartShield is devoted to growing their market share. This year promises to be a defining year for SmartShield, in 2013 we are introducing two new products to the line and have committed to retail space at HEB, Tractor Supply and Bass Pro Shops.  
An aggressive retail approach is only part of the plan, SmartShield continues to educate (see Educational Articles) the community about skin cancer prevention though regional sampling events and sponsorships. They have worked with pro-surfers, fisherman as well as local Girl Scout troops. “It is our mission to let people know that Skin Cancer is almost 100% preventable with the use of sunscreen, we believe that the best sunscreen is the one that you will actually wear, SmartShield is wearable and it works.
SmartShield has a lot of other products besides the Rehydrating Face Cream to choose from as far as sunscreen products such as insect repellent and self tanners, so go check them out and see what might interest you for yourself and/or your family.

I could really use this since I live in a desert. I usually stay hermitted up during the day and go out only in the early morning and evening. With this I can go out all day and not have to worry that the hot sun will give me premature wrinkles.

Sounds like a really great product. I've never heard of smart shield before but it's a fantastic idea to put a 45 spf into your moisturizer. That way you never forget to put it on!
