This is a great daytime moisturizer. I got a full size tube at Nordstrom Rack for $7. It's jam-packed with a bunch of great stuff for your skin.
Not only does it have sunscreen (SPF 20), it has vitamins C (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) and E (tocopheryl acetate). Vitamins C and E are great antioxidents that work together to enhance the power of one another. Vitamins C and E have also been shown to enhance the effects of sunscreen.
This moisturizer contains 2 peptides (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 and palmitoyl oligopeptide). Both these peptides affect the collagen in your skin positively. It also contains glucosamine HCl. Glucosamine has been shown to stimulate hyaluronic acid synthesis. Hyaluronic acid!

I bought this on sale for $19 at Sephora. The texture is runny so when applied on the skin, it can be mistaken as greasy. (I prefer thicker moisturizers such as Bliss's Best of Skintention) The cucumber scent reminds me of Nair. I'm not too thrilled about this product, although I like how it has an SPF of 20.

I got a sample of this actually from my local Walgreens. I am glad I was able to sample this first because plainly it just sucks. The texture is weird. Very thin. I almost felt like I was rubbing in a watery cream and because of this it did not sink into my skin very well. And the scent of this was weird and because of it not sinking in quickly I felt that the scent lingered. This did not break me out or irritate my skin, but it also did not do a good job at moisturizing my skin. I felt like this did not work any better then a generic mark moisturizer which is quite bad for how expensive this is. I won't be buying this....

I needed some good moisturizer and I saw this on sale at Sephora for $19 so I decided to get it. If I had checked the reviews here, I would have never bought this- even at sale price.
I am very unhappy with this product. First of all, it is SMALL. It has 1.35 fluid oz of the product. Why oh Why did I not check this before pulling the trigger?? I just assumed that it'd be larger... Your serums and eye creams are generally 1 oz so this is a bit larger than serums... This moisturizer is normally sold for $38... I have very dry skin so I am willing to spend money on products that will moisturize well. Unfortunately, this product does not moisturize- it is also hard to spread evenly on skin and does not get absorbed well- I even tried warming it in my hand with no luck.. Even though I didn't pay full price, I don't think I should work so hard to get it to work. horrible, horrible, tsk tsk. It is the worst moisturizer I have ever used!! Shame on Cosmedicine.
I want my $20 back!
*update* I took it back to Sephora. Thank Goodness for Sephora's return policy.

I really, really liked this moisturizer. Absorbs well, smells weird, but leaves a nice smooth finish, no grease. Works well with the rest of the Cosmedicine line. Its a good daytime moisturizer, but there are others that I have tried that I like just as well: Boscia, Purpose, Cetaphil, Peter Thomas Roth. So it gets the average 3 lippie rating for me.

As many others, I also received a sample of this moisturizer @ Sephora. I don't mind the smell at all and the consistency was not a problem for me either. My problem w/ this product is that it broke me out (I have dry skin). Maybe I had an allergic reaction to one of its components, but I will definitely not purchase a full size of this one. :(

Very bad... I mean I did not know the brand but i got this day moisturizer + the Eye cream in a swap & I was very deceived by both.
Runny texture, it STINKS to high heavens but I endured twice in application; then had to throw away the remainings of my sample. Could not stand the scent.
And the feeeling on my face was... ackward.
Started getting reddish...stinging.
Don't like it at all not nor I recommend it.

I received a generous sample of this moisturizer from Sephora and am really impressed with it. Love the texture, it's on the runny side, but applies so nicely and works well under foundation -- it reminds me of some of the foundation primers I've tried. It does seem to get a bit tacky as it dries, but that goes away quickly -- just need to wait 10 minutes before applying makeup.
Love the scent; it's a fresh cucumber scent that reminds by of Estee Lauder's Day Wear. Most importantly, it didn't cause my combo, break-out prone skin any problems. I tested this cream during the winter months when my skin tends to be a tad drier and found it very soothing and moisturizing. Don't know how it would be for oilier skins or those whose skin gets oilier during the summer months like mine.
With all the positive things going for this product, I knocked a lippie off due to price. A full size tube at Sephora costs $48 US, and that's just too expensive to get me to switch from my current daytime moisturizer -- fragrance free Olay Complete SPF 30. I said I wouldn't purchase this product again -- and that's solely based on price. If the Olay stopped working for me, I might reconsider.

I got this as a sample from Sephora and although it's an OK moisturizer if your skin is not having a dry day, the smell of it is so horrendous I wonder who'd use it. It smells like Nair. Maybe I got a bad sample, but this smells so chemically and gross.

I found this moisturizer rather average, although I do like the higher than usual SPF 20. The 'cones in this product made my face shiny, and I needed to blot or powder frequently during the day to remove excess oil. Primary Care seemed difficult to remove and required a separate oil cleanser prior to washing. Mary Kay facial bar or Ponds wipes didn't cut through the sunscreen well enough to prevent clogged pores.

Like many other reviewers, I received a generously sized sample from Sephora. It's a 5 mL sample, so it was enough to last me over several days. I used it in the morning. It has an SPF in it, and I rarely wear moisturizers with SPF at night (after all, what's the point?). It has a light texture and is absorbed into my skin almost immediately. I usually use a (higher SPF) sunscreen over it, just because I have a lot of pigmentation - and I'm not interested in seeing it get darker (and SPF 20 is a little on the low side). Now typically, moisturizers with SPF usually are really really awful on my skin. They tend to clog the pores and are amazing disasters if/when I wear them under foundation. However, I can wear this one without any problems. Nice! There's a light scent, but I don't notice it after I put on the rest of my m/u. For reference, I have combination-tending-towards-oily skin, get a breakout occasionally, and am sensitive (my skin is sensitive, that is). Also as reference, sunscreens in this product are avobenzone and octinoxate. The packaging says it offers both UVA and UVB protection. Dimethicone is listed as the "skin protectant" (yeah, whatever). Othe ingredients include sodium hyaluronate. Nice product. I think it's worth the price, b/c there are so few moisturizers with SPF that don't wreak havoc on my skin, and Primary Care Multi-Tasking Moisturizer is one of them.

I received this as a sample from Sephora. I have very dry sensitive mature skin. Most moisturizers have no effect upon my skin. They soak in and it's asif I didn't put anything on my skin. This product had little or no scent. I did not smell a "Nair" like odor as another review said.. The texture was smooth and the product glided nicely on my skin. After it was applied, my face felt hydrated. I will have to say that my face felt a little bit of a tacky or slightly sticky feel after applying, but compared to using other products and the parched feeling that my skin had after using the other brands, I'll take this one. This is definitely for those of us who have dehydrated mature sensitive skin.

Smelled like Nair...while this is not really a big deal it kind of turned me off but I just held my breath and applied it. About 45 minutes later it started rubbing off my face -- not the greatest feeling. Skin is soft but I doubt I'll buy it.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is the worst moisturizer I have ever tried, its a nice consistency and the smell is not overpowering, when I first put it on I loved it however, about twenty minutes later when I felt my face it started rubbing off in my hands GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got this as a sample from Sephora. It's a nice light weight day time moisturizer with a good SPF. Makeup applies nicely over it. But it's really no different to me than any of the other light weight moisturizers I have/have used. Also knowing this is like 45 bucks or whatever makes me quite clear I will never actually purchase it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Black
Kind of liked it, but it wasn't moisturizing enough. Maybe in the summer i might try it again. Itdid leave my skin soft. Not worth the price. Didn't do anything special to my skin. Not bad or good. Average.

I am 58 years old ...received this as a sample from SEPHORA.
This moisurizer goes on like liquid silk on my dry skin . I thought
it was great. It is something I would order a bottle of ..but the price might be prohibitive for me. As a moisturizer I think it worked fine
for me....and I loved the feel of it on my skin.

Received this as part of my Sephora Gratis, and boy did I not know how expensive this was until I read up online. $48 for a tiny 1.35oz bottle!
The packaging is horrible. Product tends to leak onto the cap or upon opening the swivel cap.
For $48, it definitely does what it's supposed to, however. Definitely reduces dryness, but leaves a sheen after application. Thankfully, the sheen disappears within a minute.
I use this as my daily daytime moisturizer before applying Philosophy's The Present Clear Makeup primer.
Definitely reduces dryness and I'm glad it has an SPF20 rather than the average SPF15.
Noticed that sheen on my foundation is minimal with Cosmedicine's Primary Care Multi-Tasking Moisturizer as a pre-primer lotion, as compared to my nightime regime Murad's Skin Perfecting Lotion. Used Murad's moisturizer instead of Cosmedicine as a pre-primer lotion to see the difference.
Murad's skin perfecting lotion moisturized better than Cosmedicine's, but Murad's also gave a little more sheen in my foundation throughout the day than compared to Cosmedicine.
But even with all the SPF and extra moisturizers, $48 is a little too pricey for my tastes. After this is used up, I'll be looking for a cheaper alternative. Extremely good moisturizer if you don't mind the price.

This is one of the items from this line that I actually like. It is hard to find a good, under makeup, daytime moisturizer with SPF. This one is moisturizing enough for my dry skin, but also sinks in quickly so that your face doesn't feel greasy or slimey. I use this every day before my foundation primer.

I received samples of this from Sephora, and for the most part, I have had good results with it. I have combo skin, dry in the t-zone area, normal elsewhere. I tend to use this product only on the dry areas of my face; as others have said, it will make your skin feel rather greasy at times. Other than that, it's light, and has an attractive smell. I will probably be purchasing this once my samples run out, despite its price, as I have great results on my dry skin.
