I got this in a swap, and I was interested in only because of the purported vitamin C content (which I found out later to be only 1% - its the 17th or 18th ingredient). This fragranced "moisturizer" made my skin break out after 4 or 5 days of use and it made me look incredibly oily. Despite looking like I had slathered on oil, my skin felt very dry afterwards. The spf of 15 is a joke especially knowing the fact that this sunscreen is NOT stable. On top of all this, the snap cap tended to cause unwanted leakage of the "moisturizer" when opening & closing. I have this available for swap if anyone is willing not to take my word for it !
