A little bit greasy for my oily face. I will buy an oil free spf lotion next time.
I got this as a sample, and used it a few times. I have an asian combination skin that's not too sensitive, but for some reason every time I put this on it kind of burns a little on my skin. I don't break out or anything, but it just kind of feels like something's there that's burning my skin a little, and continuously. This feeling will last until I wash the product away.
Another user mentioned how many chemicals are in this, so I guess that explains the horrible ever-lasting burning sensation...
It feels too horrible for me to ever buy this.
As I age, I grow more and more fond of luxury face creams. I just like the feeling of pampering my skin. The trick is to find creams that protect my skin without making it break out. I like the Lancome brand, however it's normally filled with some sort of fragrance. I've read the other reviews and agree - the fragrance is a bit off putting and not necessary.
I like the claims of "nurturing Vitamins E, B5 and CG plus high potency moisturization, this greaseless formula provides 24-hour hydration". I do feel that the cream lasts all day. Love the Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen. Love the texture. Dislike the fact that I have to dip my fingers into the jar. Shocked it has not broken out my skin. I've used it along with RAM at night in place of night cream for extra moisture against the drying effects of RAM.
I don't understand how the claims of "Non-comedogenic. Dermatologist-tested for safety.
Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation" have to include a fragrance, but do get the idea that this is common with French cosmetic brands. Will I buy it again? As long as my skin does not break out, yes. SPF 30 creams are too hard to come by that do not break out my skin.
Active ingredients: Avobenzone 3.0%, Octisalate 5%, Octocrylene 7%
Rating: PA+++; PPD 8.8
Consistency: lightweight cream
Fragrance: I initially thought it was a light, pleasant fragrance, but as I rubbed it into my face, the stronger it seemed to become. The scent does dissipate after about 10 minutes.
Finish: Sinks in nicely for a soft, diffused finish
Wear: Depending on the time of the month, this makes me shinier than usual by mid-day.
Gym: Did not sting eyes
Notes: I wish this wasn't packaged in a jar. However, it does look elegant and makes me feel luxurious when I apply it.
I have normal-to-dry skin, and I didn't think that my skin was particularly sensitive, but as soon as I put this product on my face, my face felt like it was burning. I had to take it off right away. Otherwise, I think the product smells nice, and the texture of the cream was very smooth and soft.
This was one of the items in the Sephora suncare sampler and I have been really pleased with it. The one issue that keeps it from earning a perfect rating is that it has a lot of fragrance and with my sensitive skin, I try to avoid scented skincare products. I do love the scent - it smells like all the Embryolisse products - must be a French skincare thing. Overall, this is a great product - protects well from the sun and moisturizes my dry, flaky skin without making me greasy or causing breakouts. I love that it leaves no white cast and doesn't highlight flakes. Makeup applies well over it. I have very sensitive/reactive rosacean skin so the fact that this doesn't cause issues is impressive. I can't stand the jar packaging - not hygienic and allows the breakdown of key ingredients. I wish it had an airtight pump. Because of that and the fragrance, I would not re-purchase.
This is a great moisturizer - creamy, absorbs beautifully with a great finish, and leaves my skin feeling good all day with sun protection. One aspect I hate is the detergent-like smell; others call it clean, so that's your call.
But, I won't be repurchasing as I have re-committed to using/buying cruelty-free products and after years of pseudo promises from the bug guys, very few have ever followed through, including Lancome. NOTHING is worth subjecting a harmless animal to pain and suffering. NOTHING.
I have been using Lancome products for 10 years and I love this SPF 30 face moisturer. It's long lasting, creamy, in a pump, smells fresh, won't clog pores, and last for about 6 months. I use it on top of my serum. No reaction. I have oily T-zone spring/ summer and dry skin in the fall/winter. This product is great year round. Thanks for reading.
I love this moisturizer. I'm in my mid forties and don't have lines or wrinkles. I love knowing that the sunscreen in this product will keep my skin young as long as possible. This is definitely not just for the young girls. It goes on smooth and has just the lightest pleasant scent.
I used to use this without any problem or breakouts but after a winter of not using it at all, my face suddenly broke out with all these tiny little bumps on my forehead and it burned like heck. Weird since it worked so well before.
I was using Clarisonic and First Aid Beauty radiant pad before putting it on. It could be the parabens that finally wreak havoc at the end of its shell life or FAB pad or the combination of both. I think it's the combination of both because of the acids (that's supposed to be mild anyway...) in FAB pads.
Will update this later.
