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!

I cannot speak highly enough of this product! I think i have a slightly different one (its SPF 30, not 25), purchased in Australia.
I have spent lots on face sunscreens in the past because i dont like super oily ones and im prone to hormonal breakouts. I am usually a hardcore Cetaphil fan and am very loyal to the cetaphil cleanser but didn't like their face sunscreen.
The QV face moisturizer was cheaper than the Cetapahil one, and less greasy. I also use it as a primer under my makeup and it doesnt give me "white face" in flash photography that all my other sunscreens do because it contains nano-sized zinc oxide (the small particles do not scatter light and therefore do not appear white). My dermatologist told me to look for zinc oxide products rather than titanium dioxide - better for combating premature aging.
It doesn't break me out, feels very nourishing. Highly recommended!!

Although I indicate yes to buy again, I am referring to maybe option actually. This product was recommended to me by my colleague, the basic body/face moisturer type, w/o sunblock function. That was great when traveling to cool dry climate. I'd applied alot and finish the Tube with 14 days, body+face. Thus I decided to try this one with sunscreen, since this appears perfect for day use. Recalling first day I used, my colleague mentioned I'd looked great. I was happy about it. I didn't use it daily, as I afraid the slight oily feeling of the cream'll clog my pores. I have a few pimples now. Still accessing the pdt, not fully use finish yet.

This stuff is great. No frills or marketing gimmics. Just a great every day staple.The one I have is SPF 30+ so I think they've upgraded it. It doesn't clog pores, smooths on a breeze. Actually gives my skin a bit of a matte finish. Works well under makeup. Great sun protection. Withstands a solid sweaty workout in the heat. Will buy again and again.

Because of sensitive complexion and as I am 78 years old, I was told to try Ego QV products. I wash with their Wash, moisturise with Body moisturiser after my shower, and finally use the Face Moisturising cream SPF25 before applying my foundation. After 12 months I have noticed a remarkable improvement. I can recommend these products to anyone, not only for the elderley. they are inexpensive and really work.

For my dry skin, this has been a really perfect moisturiser. Before using this I was too lazy to apply sunscreen in the morning but now I don't need to worry! As others mentioned it leaves a slight white cast but disappears after a minute or two. Also quite buildable, if I am really dry I often apply two layers. I also love that it doesn't contain any perfumes or unnecessary ingredients. Will repurchase!

I have been using this qv spf 30+ lotion for ~ 1 month and I think this sunscreen is a good one for its price and quality. It did break me out a little bit at first probably because of the ZnO in the formula, but it is a really good gentle suncreen for my sensitive skin especially if you are on tretinoin / bha stuff. I used 2 be able 2 tolerate neutrogena spf45 with avobenzone, but since I used some other skincare items, it just became very sensitive. I'm now using this qv sunscreen instead of my staple spf45 and I think it offers alright daily protection without making my skin red and irritated. 4 lippies (minus 1 as it sorta broke me out a little bit).
Edit: changing it to 3 lippies as it makes my skin too white when I have it on. IDK Y a 4% ZnO sunscreen can make my skin white. Sadly I won't repurchase.

I just bought my 3rd tube. I love the gentle formula, it does not clog my acne prone skin, does not irritate my sensitive skin, no forgetting this is sunscreen cum moisturizer. I only need to wash, tone then follow by this product for day and night time with the night cream. My acne marks seems to clear up, existing pimples calm down. This is also good makeup base. For S$16.50 it is worth every cents. One tube can last for at least 3-4 months.

Overall i would rate this a 4.5, it is a great sunscreen. The protection is fab, and i love how it is free of unnessecary crap. My old l'oreal sunscreen was not working well for me, as i disliked the added colours, chemicals, perfums etc, and felt that i was doing damadge to my skin even tho it was a sunscreen.
This QV spf 30+ is better than i thought it would be. A LOT better than i thought it would be. I must admit i bought it out of desperation and just needed one for a few days while looking around for a better one. But i will buy this again. It is not greasy on me, it does not leave a white cast and it works great under makeup. I just wish that it was more moisturising. But as my skin is VERY dry, i'm certain most people will find this to be perfect. Hopefully once my skin has improved this will be my HG. Go out and try this! Wil def repurchase and it deserves the great ratings.
Update:I'm in LOVE with this. I have found my HG sunscreen and daily moisturiser, this is perfect. GO AND TRY IT!!!

I first started using this product years ago when I started using Benzoyl Peroxide and needed something that was gentle, moisturizing and had an SPF 30. I have tried other moisturizers here and there over the past five years but this remains my HG moisturizer. Even though I have acne-prone skin, I have found this suitable for me because of the acne products I use which can sometimes be drying. I love the texture of this, which I find to be creamy yet so light once you have massaged it in. For an SPF 30 moisturizer, it really absorbs well. There is a subtle white cast for a few minutes after application, but nothing major as it does go away.
Most importantly, this does not cause break outs for me and hasn't in the five years I have used it. I also find it sits nicely under foundation.

This is the best product for irritated, flaky skin ever. As I have oily skin I do not use it every day as a moisturizer, however when I my skin gets red and irritated by some products as I am quite sensitive, this is the stuff I use. And it works amazingly. It does not break me out at all and I use it on the affected areas only. It is fragrance-free and contains an SPF of about 30 which is great.
I use this as a sunscreen when I run out of my regular sunscreen however I prefer to keep this as an emergency treatment. Love it! Great value for money

I have used this for over a year now and will continue to use this in years to come. This moisturiser not only has an SPF of 30, but is gentle on my highly sensitive + dry (sometimes oily skin). I have had no breakouts whatsover from it and it keeps my skin fair even during hot summers down here in Australia. Not greasy at all, easy to apply, comes in a tube, available at any pharmacy and cheap. Only thing that could improve is its packaging - blue & white. But then, for something so basic there's really no need.

I personally hated this moisturiser. It was greasy and made my skin shiny. On the other hand, my brother absolutley loves it. I guess it has different results for different people.

This is a great Sunscreen cum Moisturizer and specially made for those who have Dry/Sensitive Skin. This lotion goes on smooth, absorbs quickly, very light lotion and not sticky at all. There's SPF25 and broad spectrum too. Dermatologically tested and helps prevent premature ageing.
