I bought this from Ulta because they have an awesome return policy. I tried it for about a month--it was okay, nothing special. For $60 I wanted to be wowed, but instead, I was pretty underwhelmed. It also made my eyes sting during the day no matter how far away I put the product from my eyes, but that is seeming to be pretty common for me as I've been trying different moisturizers w/ sunscreen. I chose this sunscreen in particular because it is free of parabens. I also have a small bit of pigmentation from an old pimple. I can't comment on if this lightened it up any because I was also given the matching cleanser for free during a promotion. I used that with my Clarisonic and I think it helped brighten my skin. Needless to say, I returned the sunscreen and I'm sticking with my Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen for now (even though, sadly, it has parabens).
Anyway, I have oily skin and the Murad contributed to that but not horribly. I didn't have any adverse effects from it such as pimples. It is not very moisturizing, probably best to be used during the summer. I liked the fact that it has Vitamin C in it, but, as someone else mentioned, it's a bit odd that it's not in a dark-colored container. If you have the money, it wouldn't hurt to try it. But for my student budget it was too pricy for little benefit to me so I returned it.

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!
