Where to begin... This is not moisturizing enough, it does not brighten the complexion, you need to apply it generously to get adequate sun protection, and the price is ridiculous. This is a very, very average product. Do not waste your money.

Good: I've been using this for about a couple of months now and I'm enjoying it. I love the way it keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day.
I have not had any breakouts or feeling of slimy oily skin.
I enjoy the light scent of citrus as i put this on each morning. Other than my coconut oil this is pretty much all i use for a daily moisturiser now.
Bad: I think it's a bit pricey really (over $100 here in New Zealand), but i'll buy it again at a cheaper price (Ebay).

It is too greasy to use over makeup. It doesn't feel comfy and lightweight.

I have extremely dry skin and this stuff was so greasy and sticky it made me look like an oily teenager. Never seems to absorb fully. I much prefer Neutrogena or Aveeno for SPF for my face. This stuff is comparable to something you'd grab at the dollar store.

I bought this on sale, and until now it seems fine. No breakouts or anything. :)

I really like the fresh orange citrus smell and the texture of this day cream. But, it sits on top of the skin and leaves a shiny greasy feel. I would not buy this again because of the gross shine it leaves. I needed to use a face powder to take the greasy look away, and the combination of the two feels like I'm wearing a mask. It's too expensive for what it is.

I got a free sample and decided to try it today under my makeup as I am on the hunt for a moisturizer. The citrus smell is ehhh but it went away quickly. I had to wait a bit for it to be absorbed so I can use my MAC Studio Fix. Even after a few minutes it was still not completely absorbed and I was rushed so I had to do my makeup anyway which I did not like.
It wasn't a bad moisturizer but it wasn't great either and for that price, I'll pass!
I must say, if it has vitamin C or antioxidants, shouldn't it be packaged in a dark glass bottle??

. I have oily/blemish prone/combination skin, and overall it's keeping my skin supple and happy during this time of year, with the varying humidity/dryness. it's got a citrus smell which i like, absorbs quickly, is moisturizing and doesnt cause oiliness throughout the day. With the spf factored it, I dont have to buy and apply a separate sunscreen. It is pricey at $60, so I would buy again if I cannot fine a better alternative.

I'm surprised at the low ratings for this moisturizer, because I found it to be very good for my combo skin. I wear this under the NARS tinted moistuizer and find that it's light and doesn't make me greasy by the end of the day. Initially I thought I would like the Josie Maran tinted moisturizer, but the heavy-feeling consistency and scent really turned me off. This has a refreshing citrus scent that dissipates quickly. The moisturizer itself absorbs quickly so it's perfect for using in the AM. I will definitely repurchase!

I LOVE this moisturizer ! I have combination skin that has a tendency to get oily during the day so I needed a light moisturizer with SPF. I was using Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer but it would make me look SO greasy all day long and it felt really thick and heavy on my skin. I was blotting 2x as much as I normally would and I just wasn't seeing the anti-aging benefits from using it. Essential-C Day Moisture absorbs quickly, does not feel thick or heavy on the skin, has a pleasant citrus scent, has made my skin look better with continued use, DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT and most importantly, DOES NOT MAKE ME LOOK LIKE A GREASEBALL !!! Prior to the Josie Maran, I used Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock but didn't like how greasy that made my face either (although it is much less than the Josie Maran). The Josie Maran one is probably my least favorite moisturizer with SPF of all time lol. I also like that this comes in a tube where you can squeeze every little tiny bit out. Yes, it IS expensive as heck but I really feel that it has made my skin look much better so I will keep dishing out the $60 for the 1.7 oz tube.
