EDIT - Watch out for the alcohol in this if you have combo dry skin or use Retin-A! My face is flaking off and I can barely smile (skin is red, itchy and cracking); this is the only change I made in my routine. May be great protection but it is killing my skin even on top of moisturizer... returned to the counter today.... will stay away from alcohol in sunscreens in the future. ProCyte Ti-Silc SPF 60+ is 100 times better than this-- finally I found something w/ a high SPF that is gentle. - END EDIT

Just got this a couple of days ago, and it's good stuff. I've used Eucerin moisturizer with 30 SPF (for sensitive skin) for years since it moisturizes well and provides a decently high SPF. It's great in the winter (and is super cheap, lasts forever), but in the summer in NYC melts off your face in the hot humidity. This summer I didn't want to take any chances since I'm outdoors a lot walking, so picked up some of this cream. It really adheres to skin.. I mean once you smooth it on, it's ON there for the day. The hardest thing about it is IT WILL NOT COME OFF at night! Last night I rubbed jojoba oil all over, scrubbed twice with my Lush Fresh Farmacy soap and water, and THEN had to go over my face three times with a cotton pad and toner. Even then it still felt like the sunscreen was still on there! So I ordered some DHC cleansing oil hoping that it will take it off, becuase apparently none of the products I have will--????
