I've got dry skin, and I've been looking for a moisturizing daily sunscreen product that's more accessible than Elta MD or Paula's Choice. I've been trying this out for about a month now; I can't even wear it with my foundation (Nars All Day Luminous or Hera's UV Moist topped with powder). I noticed my foundation doesn't last and almost instantly looks "separated", regardless of powder. This stuff just seems to turn my face into a greasy mess, and even after waiting 30 mins I still feel it sitting on top of my skin. :(

My sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin is not a fan. Not only does this break me out every time I decide to give it another go, but it makes my foundation (Estée Lauder Double Wear) look oily and patchy. This also made my eyes sting. My life became so much easier the day I decided to ditch my European sunscreens and move onto Japanese brands (Bioré).

The best!! I have tried a lot of high-end dermatological moisturizers and sunscreens. I even formulate my own moisturizers. Nothing beats this product. I very much appreciate that it is a moisturizer and suncreen in one, and that the SX sunscreen provides such great UVA protection. I am the type of girl who does not like having a lot of product on my face as it can feel heavy and just plain gross. Also, I hate complicated skincare routines that involve sooo many procedures and products, so I embrace anything that will distill my daily routine. This does it for me. Right as I get out of the shower, I spritz some of my antioxidant toner with glycerin all over my face and apply this moisturizer. Bam! Done, and out the door in a flash.

Oh boy, this is the best moisturizer! A dermatologist prescribed it for me. I am 72 and both my husband and I use it daily. I apply it before applying my foundation. It is SPF 15. My skin is a little dry and this really helps to hydrate. We use it every day and it says it lasts for 24 hours. You can buy it on line. It doesn't require a prescription and is in the $20 range. I don't ever use any other product. It is not greasy as some moisturizers tend to be. It works and we will never be without it.

Summary: While this product is moisturizing, it clogged my pores and broke me out badly. Con's * Broke me out and clogged my pores almost immediately!* My skin was also slightly itchy. * Too heavy, made my skin look greasy. And my skin is very dry. * Expensive!Pro's * It does moisturize for those who don't mind looking shiny * It blend in well and does not leave a white cast

Each time I attempted to use this, I woke up with sore, under-the-skin spots on my forehead the following day. If you are prone to facial KP, redness, and clogged pores, I would avoid this. It's fairly expensive in the U.S. at $35 from CVS or Ulta, but you do get a decent amount in the tube. I've switched to Philosophy's Hope in a Jar Oil-Free SPF 30 with better results.

I thought this sunscreen would be a good option for my dehydrated oily skin but unfortunately, it was too moisturizing and contributed to foundation oxidation.I purchased this at CVS because they have a decent return policy. It was $35 before tax but I did use a 20% off coupon, which CVS offers pretty regularly. I had read this product was very moisturizing so I skipped my own moisturizer and just went with the sunscreen. It was creamy and melted onto my skin nicely. When I used a full 1/4 teaspoon, which is the recommended amount for one's face, I looked like a white, greasy mess. Fortunately, the white cast went away after a couple of minutes and the sunscreen dried down decently to a semi-matte finish. Decently only because I felt the finish was a bit tacky even after several minutes.While I had no problems applying any of my makeup on top of the sunscreen, my foundations oxidized more than I was comfortable with. I'm sure the issue had something to do with the sunscreen being so moisturizing and my skin already being on the oily side (even as it is dehydrated too).Speaking of moisturizing, this is not a drying product in the least. I wore this sunscreen on a couple of cool days and I got oily pretty quickly. I did not experience melting foundation or anything drastic but my skin did feel uncomfortable. I would not say this is a tenacious sunscreen because I found that it washed off my hands fairly easy. I do, however, always use an oil-based makeup remover for anything I wear on my face. One other issue I had with this product was that it contains avobenzone. I don't have an issue with the filter itself -- no breakouts or anything -- but I find that it is a bit of a headache trying to avoid unstable sunscreen combinations such as avobenzone and octinoxate. Not a huge deal -- just a personal inconvenience considering some of my foundations do contain octinoxate. Overall, a nice sunscreen for someone who isn't oily. Active Ingredients: Avobenzone 2%, Ecamsule 2%, Octocrylene 10%.Inactive ingredients: Carbomer 940, Carbomer Copolymer Type B, Cyclomethicone, Cimethicone, Edetate Disodium, Glycerin, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Isopropyl Palmitate, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Purified Water, Stearic Acid, Stearoyl Macrogolglycerides, Stearyl Alcohol, Trolamine.

Excellent moisturizer. It isn't greasy or tacky and leaves a semi-matte finish on my combination oily/dry skin. And it's comfortable to wear. Physical sunscreen moisturizers tend to feel dry on my skin. This doesn't. The SPF is low for outdoors but it works fine during the week when I'm indoors all day. I highly recommend this product.

I love this cream. I wish it were called a moisturizer instead of a sunscreen because I think more people would try it. It is my "go to" moisturizer. I don't know of another brand that has Mexoryl sunscreen in it. Mexoryl screens out damaging rays better than creams with higher SPF's.

I have dry/dehydrated combo skin that can break out from spf or moisturizers. This is the best I spf moisturizer I have found and I have been on the hunt! It feels so light. I put it on my husband's hand and he hates spf and won't wear it. He was impressed and couldn't feel it. Rubs right in fast and leaves no white cast. It is very light feeling - not greasy. There is zero sting or temporary redness, which I some times get from other chemical ss. I really like putting it on, as opposed to can live with it, as it protects and softens my skin. Too bad it's not 30 spf, but the protection is said to be excellent. I can use it around the eyes, with no irritation or watering. It is expensive, but they tube seems like it would last a long time. I wouldn't say it has zero shine though. Some days I do have more shine. It does have silicones, so if they clog you or you have oily skin it might not be for you. I found it soothing and protecting on my dryish skin out in the wind and cold. It's very simple and the that is the beauty of it - so few ingredients to create problems. Another plus is that it has no added fragrance. It does have a mild spf smell from the ingredient. The smell fades fast! I have been looking for a light weight, no-clogging, oil-free spf moisturizer. It goes on thick and while it absorbs, it remains tacky. Feels like you have glycerine on. On my body, that be heaven. It's a bit sticky as a moisturizer. Can make my eyes water. Pros:light weight invisible - no white castnot greasyno fragrance softens skin and protectsgreat UVA/UVB protectionCons:ExpensiveOnly 15 spfLeaves a shiny greasy finish, though lightCan make mu slide and adds shineUpdate: having huge problems combing makeup and spf under in general, which they all do. Make seems fade fast. If they are dewy they get more so. It's greasy and that stays. Lucky I am dry skinned. But
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
