One of the best moisturizers

5

I'm really in love with this moisturizer. It evens my skin tone and doesn't feel sticky. There's just a small amount needed to spread it over the entire face.

Great moisturiser.

5

This is moisturising and lightweight for a mineral SPF. It has a glowy finish, doesn't leave white cast and doesn't sting the eyes.

Okay, but not worth it

3

I have a Paula's Choice body moisturizer that I love, so I hoped this would be equally as great. Unfortunately I found that although the product is quite thick, it doesn't rub in well, and then it leaves a white cast. Not my favorite product for this price.

Expensive for what it is

3

This is okay. It’s very pricey for what it is, I don’t feel like it moisturises my skin and leaves residue as well. It’s an okay moisturiser but not amazing

It's more of a sunscreen than face cream

3

You can definitely tell from the texture that it's first and foremost a sunscreen. It also has a super white cast so you don't want to use more than a pea size for your face. It also leaves a weird texture for make up on top. If I was just at the beach with mascara and nothing else I would use it but definitely not a face cream I want to use everyday.

Not too thick

4

I used to hate using spf on my face and it feeling like suncream with the sticky layer left on your skin all day. I love this spf, it absorbs into the skin just like a moisturiser and doesn’t feel sticky after

Good!

4

I bought this to use as a moisturising sunscreen and it does the job very well. I have combination skin and do not need an additional a.m. moisturiser when using this. I have pale skin so it blends perfectly and doesn't leave any white residue. It gives a lovely glow after application but this doesn't last for very long. Haven't experienced any pilling or flaking.

Very decent

4

SPF is one of the most important steps in your routine, and to build consistency you need to find one you like wearing. This is that for me.I have skin that would be dry if I didn’t use an amazing thick moisturizer plus hyaluronic acid and this gives me a top up. I’m not sure what it would be like on its own, but I see this as a sunscreen. Since I’ve been using it (and in combination with the moisturiser and hyaluronic) I don’t tend to get dark marks from blemishes and any I do get fade very quickly - so I think it’s working!The texture is quite thick and has the typical slightly chalky look of a mineral sunscreen. I’m mixed race so have a tanned NC43 skin tone and although this leaves a slight white cast I’ve come to accept that in a decent physical sunscreen. For those who don’t like it, there are other chemical sunscreens.This sunscreen also gives a nice glow and goes on really well over a moisturiser and under makeup. Just don’t let it dry out because after that if you disturb it, it will start to pill. But again, we all know we shouldn’t be touching our faces anyway so I don’t see this as a dealbreaker.I did knock a point off for the two downsides but overall it’s a very good sunscreen for those with normal to dry skin, and is a staple part of my routine.

Not for tanned/darker skin

1

This leaves a white chalky residue once applied. I have Indian ski so it looks ridiculous. Would not recommend.

Flakey

3

I bought this as part of the trio set, I absolutely love this product. It applies nicely and sinks into my skin quite effortlessly and looks stunning on my skin. However, I cannot give it 5 stars due to the fact that after a couple of hours of wear it starts to flake on my face and around my eyes which is really disappointing.
