This feels really nice on my skin, doesn't feel greasy at all!!
I hate wearing sunblock on my face; it's always so heavy/greasy/smelly. When I found that the Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 was none of those things, I stuck with it. However, it's chock full of synthetic chemicals and doesn't provide enough moisture to stand alone on my dry skin, so I was still looking for a natural, more moisturizing alternative. So glad I found this! Compared to the Shiseido, it's:
-more dewy (Shiseido is nearly matte)
-in better packaging (glass pump bottle vs plastic squeeze tube)
-cheaper by the ounce ($13.50/oz vs $17.50/oz)
-also pleasantly scented (not sunblock-ish)
-also great under makeup (won't pill or clump)
I prefer the slightly dewy finish; it makes me glow. The scent is lighter than Shiseido's and somewhat fruity, but not in a juvenile way...it smells a lot like the acai moisturizer I used to have from 100% Pure. It helps my tinted moisturizer go on more smoothly as well. It has simplified my morning routine because it's a moisturizer, primer and sunscreen in one! Love!
