Hello readers, today I am reviewing the moisturizing cream Flawless Future  with SPF 30 by Elizabeth Arden. For the last couple of years my ultimate favorite was the Hydra Zen Neurocalm SPF 30 by Lancôme, but a few months ago I noticed that they have changed the formula and it does not suit me anymore. Since then I have been on a hunt for a new love.
For this review I am first going to tell you what I always expect in all moisturizers with SPF and I will also tell you if  the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future SPF30 meets those requirements.
1-A moisturizer with SPF should not leave a white cast on my face
2-A moisturizer with SPF should not have alcohol Denat as a main ingredient. It is even better if there is no alcohol Denat at all.
3-A moisturizer with SPF should not break me out.
4-A moisturizer with SPFshould not sting my eyes
5-A moisturizer with SPF should not have a strong sell or smell like a regular sunscreen
6-A moisturizer with SPF should not leave my skin oily, greasy or sticky
7-A moisturizer with SPF should protect my skin against UVA or UVB

It might be a long list to you but good moisturizers with SPF are expensif so yes I do expect them to deliver well. The Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future SPF30 only meet the first 3 of my 7 requirements. The smell of this cream is way too strong for me so it stings my eyes very badly after a few hours of wear only. The cream does not seem to absorb well into my combination skin type so it leaves my skin oily although I used it during the winter. Also I really don't like the fact that the brand does not explain clearly if it does protect against UVA, UVB or both. 
The above are my personal requirements but the brand also states that this cream is lightweight, immediately hydrates, brightens skin and helps smooth the look of pores and minimize the appearnace of discolorations. Well it did nothing of that for me except for the hydration.

I had high expectation on this cream but for all the reasons mentioned it was not a great pick for me. I was not even able to finish it so I do regret buying it...

Do you have a mosturizing cream with SPF 30 that works for you? I would love to know...

Price €50/£40/$50 for 1.7oz/50ml
