I used to use Olay Complete Total Effects SPF 30, but on moving to Australia have switched to this and have been using it for three or four years now. It's simple, effective, fragrance free and doesn't include a lot of unnecessary ingredients. There is no white cast to it and it protects from UV radiation and moisturizes, exactly what I want in a daily sunscreen/moisturizer. Have repurchased this countless times now and I usually have a backup.

Finally found a facial sunscreen that works for me! It works well under makeup (I use a silicon based primer) and it doesn't ball up. On days I can't be bothered with makeup I just slap some of this on my face and it blends in easily. It can get a little oily on my combination skin so I sometimes apply some powder over it.

FINALLY! The amount of facial moisturisers I've gone through (and money I've wasted!) trying to find one that works for me. I used to think moisturiser was moisturiser but clearly that's not the case. 99% of those that I have tried have used chemical sunscreens that have broken me out TERRIBLY - even brands like palmers. I was literally scared to try this because of past experiences. What a relief to find that it doesn't harm my skin.

I need a non-greasy moisturiser that has a good level of spf protection and sinks nicely into my skin. This just bloody does what it says it'll do unlike every other cream out there, I'm so relieved to have found it.

I have pretty oily skin but I powder once or twice during the day and I'm good to go :) It doesn't add significantly to how shiny I get - I'm going to get shiny regardless.

Anyways - this stuff is cheap, effective, and good for your skin. LOVE!

I usually picked a moisturizer without SPF so I could use it day and night. This was given to me by a friend and gave it a try. The cream is quite thick but yet it spreads well onto face. As I have combination skin type, I do find it a bit greasy in summer time. However, it works well in winter time.

No breakout and excellent for sensitive skin.

This stuff is fantastic!!! I have combo skin- and it's wonderful for moisturising. I don't feel like I've had any issues with clogged pores and this leaves no white cast. My favourite feature is the barrier (not chemical) sunscreen. The price point seems to almost be too cheap for what it is. I swear by it.

Firstly, I've been using this for several months now and am currently finishing my third tube (with another back-up tube lol). I have oily skin prone to clogging pores after experiencing my first breakout (cosmetic acne) at the age of 20. Since then, my skin has recovered and all that remains now are scars. I know that sunscreen helps fight against aging and pigmentation so I've been hunting around for a good spf moisturiser.

I have tried so many different types but it just seems like my skin is sensitive to most sunscreen moisturisers - except for this one. I remember trying some of this moisturiser from a friend years ago prior to my huge breakout and I didn't experience any adverse reactions so I decided to give it a go again and huzzah - it works!

I have oily skin (rarely combination) and this moisturiser is a bit thick and greasy for my liking - but I don't blame this product at all because it's geared towards dry skin - I just use oil-blotting sheets to combat shine.It is very easy to blend, leaves no white cast and most importantly does not clog my pores/make me break out.

If you've tried a lot of spf moisturisers like me but none of them work for you - give this product a shot!

Inexpensive and excellent moisturising sunscreen product.

I used to be a loyal fan of the L'oreal UV Perfecx SPF50. It is a good product too but it makes my eyes tear sometimes, maybe due to the fragrance. So I switched to this QV product recently. I have dry skin and this being winter, I use a moisturizer before the QV sunscreen, and it works well. Easy to spread and absorbs well, no balling up or white cast.

Best day cream/suncreen I've ever used. And I've tried so many... Between $5 and (once) $80.

Ego's sunscreen is light and non-greasy, yet it moisturises enough for the whole day. I have combination/oily skin and I can wear this under makeup with no problems.

And it's CHEAP! That's what everyone wants to hear.

Ego is an Australian brand, so you know their sunscreens are formulated for intense sun exposure.

Was looking for a moisturizer with SPF of at least 30 to save time on my morning skincare routine, and I thought this was going to be my HG for sure. It didn't contain the chemicals that ironically causes skin cancer, claimed to be for sensitive skin, and it was such a steal for a moisturizer with SPF under $20 and such a generous amount (75g) at that! However, it smells very strongly of sunscreen more than a normal cream. It fades off after a while though, and it is that after a while that I regret my decision of buying this. MY FACE WAS SO STICKY AND LOOKED INCREDIBLY GREASY. It moisturizers a little too well for my combination skin, and into the afternoon when I gave my nose a little rub, it left a whole streak of oil on my fingers. I was shocked as I had never been that oily in simply a few hours in my entire life! This is probably due to the tropical climate I live in as well. Nonetheless, it's a great product I'd recommend for anyone who has dry skin or as a miracle that will save your skin for cold, dry and harsh weather like winter or spring. And about the claim on it being suitable for sensitive skin, mine is mildly sensitive and it didn't break me out, so that's great :)

I'm on my third tube of this and I continue to use it daily under my makeup whenever I go out (I use something lighter and without sunscreen when I'm at home). It doesn't clog my pores (or at least, I think it's my makeup doing that) and it doesn't have that icky, somewhat greasy feel of sunscreen. It only becomes too much when my skin decides to have the occasional oily day. Then it feels a bit heavy. Otherwise, excellent moisturising, economical and lasts all day!
