This is a good product for my sensitive, dry skin. My face is less red and feels calm. I love it that it's a packaged in a tube, so there is no chance for oxygen to ruin the product. Another plus is the SPF.
Unfortunately it's not moisturizing enough for me in the winter. I kept putting layers of cream on my face, which was not working for my (very) dry skin. I will buy it again, but only for using in hot summers.
When I use this product daily, it takes 3/4 months before it's empty.

My experience: I bought this as I was having severe eczema appear on my chin at the time of the month, I tried many things also pure Aloe Vera and even that didn't help to prevent the eczema as much as this -amazing for reddened skin! I use proper eczema cream when it is really bad but this helps to prevent it. This moisturiser feels a little gloopy to put on, it may feel slightly tacky when you first put it on but gets a lot better as it sinks in, it's a white lotion which is pleasant to apply,don't need much. Won't do any mattifying of oily skin but isn't awfully greasy either, doesn't cause spots, it is great as a general moisturiser especially for irritated or sensitive skin (either naturally or from hormones or harsh treatments). Foundation goes on rather smooth after applying as it effectively moisturises most flaky areas.
The sun protection part** One lipstick off for this, I think they have used a 'throwaway' form of sun protection which is common is everyday moisturisers. It uses chemical sunscreen Octinoxate, Octrocrylene (which stabilises) Avobenzone, SPF 15. This to me is not that reliable protection against UVA rays everyday - although others may be fine with it - and Bodyshop does not specify the important percentages of each in this, so I have personally stopped using this and will switch to the night cream on stressed areas of my skin as I don't like the fact it contains octinoxate (there are studies about how it actually releases free radicals aging the skin rather than protecting) and the Avobezone is only stabilised by Octocrylene rather than another filter/stabiliser like Tinosorb. I use a separate sunscreen to ensure proper protection everyday.
Other info on the product: Comes in A squeezy pale green tube, lasts 6 months from being opened.

I love this product. Its the only moisturiser with SPF, I have tried, that doesn't break me out.
I apply it over Benzoyl peroxide because I have light acne, the BP can be really drying and i find this lotion soothes my skin.
I don't understand the other reviews that claim it is heavy or oily, I never have this problem with it. Its a lovely light lotion with the main ingredient being Aloe Vera. Its low on chemicals and irritants.
I love that its in a tube and I don't have to stick my fingers in it to apply. My husband happily uses it because its looks unisex not girly.
An excellent simple lotion with SPF.

Let me begin by just stating how much I LOVE Body Shop products. Almost all of my skincare and body care is exclusively theirs. Thus, I had high hopes for this moisturizer.
First, SPF 15 is practically useless. Experts say you need at least 30...but this was the highest they had so I went with it anyway. This makes my skin just feel...gross...sticky and uncomfortable. It hasn't broken me out, yet...but just the way this feels on my skin is a reason not to repurchase. And for $18...I could almost afford two of my HG Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 30.

This is by far my favourite SPF moisturizer. I have had issues in the past where lotions with SPF would break out my skin or make me too oily. I decided to give this one a try since it's for sensitive skin. I really like this.
It goes on light and blends easily. It's great under my foundation as a primer.

godsend. smells a little weird however this affordable precious is fragrance and dye free,I can deal with the smell. now moving on the the product this really helped my skin when it was really sensitive everything stung and itched or clogged or broke me out from high end to drugstore i have tried so many so called sensitive or hyped about skincare and this little gem surpassed my expectations. it's light fluid texture absorbed well and didn't clog nor broke me out but instead soothed and moisturized well. I don't rely on this for the SPF factor but more so as a daily lightweight moisturizer. this is a keeper and would definitel repurchase along with the foaming cleanser and night cream. this is my go to moisturizer everyday now and I use the night cream really sparingly at night. no more tightness or itching and ended my search for a moisturizer that soothes is lightweight and doesn't clog nor break me out.

I love this product! In fact I love the whole aloe range of products from TBS. They totally saved my skin...I used neutrogena for a long time...I have really dry sensitive skin and eczema..I just thought that's how my skin was! Dropped the neutrogena and my skin looked amazing in only a couple of days...no more red blotchy skin. Love it! Totally a HG item and entire range!

I've been using this & the night cream for a good while now, it's great for my sensitive skin. It's quite a thin texture which sinks into skin quickly and you don't have to use much product. It moisturises my dry skin well. The price isn't too bad, as it does last a good time. I like the squeezy tube, it's quick and easy to use.

This lotion made me so oily and it didnt absorb well on my combination skin. It did moisturize well, but i guess it would be more ideal for dry skin and not combo/oily skin. My husband actually has dry skin and he said he likes it so it wasnt a total waste!

Ive been using olay complete lotion spf15 for sensitive skin for a while when I strayed into this. Its because I dunno why, but I always like The Body Shop stores and its concept, although so far never have luck with thir products. So one day when I passed the shop, I walk in and I dunno why I ended buying this thing. As soon as Im home, I remember I regretted the decision but try it anyway. I liked the smell and the consistency but find it too oily for me and doesnt absorb well. And it broke me out too although just a bit. I stop using it after a week and back to my olay lotion. Its pretty expensive compare to olay, it cost me around 10quid. Anyway wont repurchased again and currently I use it for my neck or body

This is the best moisturizer I've found so far. I have combination skin and find it balances wonderfully, moisturizes the dry parts without making me greasy. Makeup sits very well on top of this moisturizer too, it gives me a great base. I'm investigating other products simply because of the price, but I don't think I'll be able to beat the performance.

i love this! great moisturizer and sunscreen. and the aloe is good for rosacea prone skin.
*UPDATE* Although it did tame my redness, it made me break out after about a week. When i stopped using it my face immediately cleared up. It is not non-comedogenic and it contains oil. I put it on my neck and chest now but i cannot put it on my face.

I've used this product about 2 months, and my face feels so smooth and soft! It is very light weight and absorbs quickly, leaving your skin feeling VERY fresh and moisturized, and ready to face the day! It really helps foundations or powders glide on evenly, too!

I'm always looking for the perfect moisturizer with high SPF.
But I noticed that the higher the SPF level is, the less moisturizing the creams are.
But not for this lotion. It's a thinnish lotion, but it spreads like oil, very smooth and evenly. It's not greasy, though.
It moisturizes my skin all day, even in the winter. And my skin get VERY dry in the winter...I have very sensitive skin which turns red easily and gets irritated from perfumed creams and sun lotions.
The package is perfect; it comes in a tube, so it's very hygienic and easy to carry around. Only disadvantage is the price.

Bought this because I LOVE the aloe day cream, and this has SPF 15. Smells very light, feels smooth and soft, hydrates wonderfully. Does make your face a bit shiny, but I've found anything with SPF does that. I let it sink in for about 5-10 minutes before putting my makeup on.
It's expensive though, but when I hit my LYB discount points or have a promo code, I'll get this to save money!
