There is a lovely, soft texture to this lotion. It goes on white but disappears after a little while. I love that there's no scent. My face is not oily or shiny at all. Overall, it's functional because it's so healthy and safe for your skin and it's cosmetically elegant.
$26 for 1.6 ounces is a bit pricey, but it's worth it because this product delivers in both the moisturizing and sunscreen department.
What i don't like the the tube pump. The picture is that of a bottle pump, which I would prefer.

I love!!! I have oily acne-prone skin and it helps my skin stay matte without irritating it. My face looks brighter and more alert compared to when I had none on. The bottle was a bit annoying towards the end. The dispenser stopped working so I had to open the bottle and pour it out.

I contacted100% Pure to ask if they use NANO particles in their SPF products, and they said they NEVER use them.
It's pretty remarkable that this product doesn't turn your face white, despite being completely NANO-free.

I keep forgetting to review this moisturized. Used it this summer and I still have 1/4 left. Towards the end of summer, I forced my boyfriend to used it up but he said it doesn't work. Truly, I don't like it too much either. Aside from it feeling nice on my skin, the SPF doesn't really work. The argan content must be quite low as most high potency argan products are very moisturizing. Not this one, it feels watered down. 100% Pure cheaps out again.

I'm giving this only 4 because of the nano thing (tho' I think nano zinc oxide is supposed to be relatively OK)--otherwise, I love this as a sunscreen for the face. Unlike other reviewers here, I find it isn't greasy as compared to most other sunscreens out there, and I can say this having used it in the humid tropics all summer! In fact, I found on the days I used it on its own without some light moisturizer underneath my skin felt a little on the dry side. Will definitely buy again.

I bought the Argan Oil moisturizer about 2 months ago to compare to the 100% Pure Pomegranate moisturizer (SPF 20), which I had been using for over a year. The additional SPF is a definite plus and I feel that the argan oil seems to be more moisturizing. I use it under the 100% Pure Healthy Skin liquid foundation and they work well together.

I actually loved this moisturizer! It was very light and I used 1 up for the summer and enjoyed the quality on my skin. A bit on the oily side, but I liked it as it is based on pure argan with the SPF. But I do think they uses nano particles which aren't natural. Nonetheless I think I'm going to buy this again next summer!

I purchased this product because of all the hype about the benefits of Argan oil and the fact that it's a chemical free sunscreen is a big bonus. I've also read that zinc oxide is supposed to be good for acne prone skin.
Sadly, this product is not a winner from 100 Percent Pure. It will definitely be too heavy for oily and possibly combination skin types. I have very dry skin at the moment (I'm on accutane) and it still didn't fully absorb into my skin. To make matters worse, this product turns my mineral makeup a strange orangey shade. At first I was concerned that my makeup has gone bad (unlikely for MMU), but as soon as I stopped using the argan SPF underneath the makeup, the shade returned to normal.
Also, this product breaks me out in little white pimples. It's getting sent back.
Lastly, since the zinc is virtually transparent, they're definitely using nano-particles, which may potentially be harmful and goes against the whole "100 Percent Pure" philosophy.

It pains me to write a bad review for 100% pure, because I love their philosophy - and most of the products. I really like the SPF20 pomegranate lotion, and was excited for a similar product with an SPF of 30. The lotion is nicely textured, and not too oily or too dry. However, there was something in this that made my skin itch like mad! Seriously, I wanted to tear off the skin on my forehead. After having this happen each time I wore the product, I put 2 and 2 together and realized that the Argan moisturizer was what was causing it. I returned it to 100% Pure.

I absolutely hated this product at first. 100 Percent Pure can have odd hits and misses IMO. At first I treated it like a sunscreen and was putting it on top of all my daytime Naruko products. It ended up as an oily, greasy disaster. I'm sticking to my Diorsnow for face protection.
Not wanting to waste it on account of it containing 24.8% Zinc Oxide that left no white cast (WIN WIN WIN) I began using it on my neck, chest, hands and feet. Now it's officially my HG "other use" sunscreen. It moisturizes beautifully and doesn't get greasy when I use it on those areas. Your chest and hands can never get enough sun protection. I would recommend it on your face to someone who has a far less complex skin routine than me. :) It comes in a nice glass bottle and has a nice, sanitary pump dispenser. I'm almost out of my bottle and have ordered another. For $26 for 2 oz it may be pricey to some, but it's totally worth it.
