I'v been using this fairly often for the past year. A little goes a long way and a tube will last a long time. It is expensive, however if this was a good product it would be worth it for me. I like the orangy smell but i find as some reviewers have said that it makes my skin feel oily not dewy. It is not very moisturizing which is why I think it feel oily. I have dryness in T-zone area and this product dosen't really help unless I use alot of it often. I will not be rebuying this product unless it is discounted by 75%. Hope this helps.

This is a really nice moisturizer, but I don't use it every day so I can't speak of it drying me out in any way. It has a nice, light orange-y smell and is more of a sheer and light moisturizer that isn't heavy or rich. It doesn't break me out at all, so that is a plus. While I like having it in my array of moisturizers, not sure if I would buy it again unless it was in a set or cheaper...it is expensive and I have other moisturizers that are cheaper and work just fine. SPF is nice, but kinda gotta be in the mood for that Orange scent sometimes.

Living in Hawaii, I need a SPF 15 for every day. I have freckles and somewhat splotchy uneven skin tone due to tanning then having it fade, then tanning again. This line has been practically miraculous. It has brightened up my skin tone and it looks more even, which is something I didn't think product could deliver, but apparently does. And its sooo soft, my skin is just so happy and adjusting well to the new products.
This moisturizer is expensive. More expensive then I'm comfortable with, but it has a lot of slip to it, so I dont' need to use very much of it at all, making it more economical. Which probably doesn't bode well for proper spf 15 protection, but i'm not super picky on that point. Also for an SPF, the texture it leaves is great. It doesn't have that white-ish caste most sunscreens leaves, the scent disappears after a while and it sinks into the skin right away and makes a good base for my makeup.
This line has literally changed my skin, that was combo, and pretty clear, for the better, which I didn't think was possible with products. I'm blown away with how soft and healthy my skin looks and feels. I did have 2 little zits after starting thiese products, but they went away and my skin just rocks. So much so that I've stopped wearing foundation, so although expensive I'm finding that I'm not having to apply foundation nor having to powder so much during the day. Its awesome.

It was over moisturizing and make my skin look too oily instead of dewy but i'm looking forward to using this during the winter when my skin gets extra dry :D

i have oily skin with acne prone and decided to try the acne complex,its works eventhough i still have breakaout (maybe because of the food im eating,if i eat pork,cheese,chilli,peanuts acne will pop in my face in minutes) and i need sumthin for my acne scars, and bought essential-C daily renewal complex which cause stingy and itchy feeling in my face...then i bought essentail C day moisture spf-C sample in ebay ( just want to know if it works before i bought the full size)i use it after applying the renewal complex and im so happy it doesnt feel stingy or itchy anymore,my skin feel smoother and my scars seems to dissappear slowly (its ok), i will buy this again if i run out my skin perfecting lotion and and perfecting day cream

I really wanted to love this product - but it is just not moisturizing enough for me. After a few days of using this, you could see the dry skin on my face - almost everywhere.
Maybe I'll go back and try it again in the summer when I need a lighter moisturizer.

This is a great moisturizer for dry skin - really softens and it lasts. Nice that it has some sun protection - great for wintertime.

I have used this moisturizer for about a year, along with the rest of the essential-c line. My texture and tone of sun damaged, dry skin has improved. While this is pretty expensive, at least it has improved my skin, which I have not ever seen in drug/department store brands. I will keep using it.

Very close to being a perfect daily moisturizer! The packaging is beautifully portable, I like the SPF and the addition of the Vitamin C is an added bonus. Product has a slight 'enlightening' affect, but has no visible shimmer, glitter, etc. My skin feels well moisturized all day, without becoming overly shiny (big bonus here!) The scent and consistency (thickish) definitely bely the fact that there is a sunscreen in there, but the scent does fade soon after application. I have over-40-but-in-good-shape skin that borders on fairly sensitive. Unfortunately after two weeks of everyday use, it was confirmed - this stuff makes me break out... Not sure if its the sunscreen or richness of the formula. Disappointed, as I was ready to award HG status here...

I received a 30ml version of this moisturizer when purchasing the package containing a full size of the Essential C Daily Renewal Complex, a 3ml size of the eye cream and 50ml of the Essential C Daily Cleanser. Of the four products in the package, I enjoyed the moisturizer the least.
Kudos to Dr Murad for including SPF 15 on this product, however, I find that it does not blend into the skin easily. On more than one occasion, it left white steaks across my cheek area that is quite difficult to rub off, unless I wash my face. As a guy, I do not want to spend enormous amount of time kneading and spreading the product on my face. I expect the product to disappear once I applied. I have resorted to using the Clinique Superdefense Moisturizer instead, which has the distinct advantage of having SPF 25.
The tube container it came with also results in a lot of wasted product. As an experiment, I cut open the tube after squeezing the bottle to no avail and decided to use a tiny cosmetic spatula to scoop the tube for the remaining product. What I ended up with was a full 15ml of product left after scouring the entire tube. To think I was ready to throw it out...
Overall Rating: 2 - Enjoyed the SPF and moisturizer combination concept, however, did not enjoy the visible white streaks left after application.
Price: 3 - due to purchasing the package. Purchased individually, the rating will be a 4 rather than a 3.
Packaging: 2 - Please read my comment above regarding the packaging.

I usually try to apply a "sufficient" amount to ensure the SPF really functions (remember what the skin experts said about the amount of sunscreen one should apply for it to work properly?) And this moisturizer always ends up "peeling off" if I rub for too long or later accidnetly touch my face. The trick seems to be - spread it quickly and not to re-stroke. I don't see improvement on my skin with one tube gone. The pump design is neat, though.

I think I've found it....the perfect everyday moisturizer with sunscreen. I'm sensitive/allergic to anything with avobenzone as the active ingredient, and that seems to be the prevalent active ingredient with most moisturizers/sunblocks w/SPF...this product has Octinoxate (7.5%) and Titanium Dioxide (2.2%)it is a thick cream consistency, but spreads into the skin easily and doesn't leave behind a strange whitish cast common with titanium or zinc oxide ingredients. The finish is not shiny or sticky either and doesn't cause my makeup to slide or turn colors/splotchy. I love how this has the added benefit of VitC...although I'm not sure how stable the ingredient is as the product is in clear packaging. Slight citrus scent...like sweet tangerines which fades after application. I've been using this for over two months now and it has not caused any breakouts (YAY!)....pretty pricey at ~$50 for a 1.7 oz tube, but I'm satisfied enough to continue to repurchase the product.
