This product contains methyl gluceth-20 rather than glycerin, so in order for it to moisturize sufficiently, you need to use a generous amount (Dan recommends 2 full pumps). However, this product contains licochalcone, which isn't a con intrinsically but is in the sense that the more you use the more of a yellow tint your skin will have. It will certainly leave a yellow residue on your face. To prevent this, moisturize both your face and neck (similar to applying makeup on your neck to prevent a noticeable line). However, I did notice that the licochalcone calmed my skin after I got a sunburn. This formulation is an oil-in-water emulsification with jojoba oil being one of the main ingredients. Because of this, it made my skin look and feel a bit greasy. It seems to sit on the skin rather than to absorb, and it doesn't eradicate flakiness. Now for the positives: It is lightweight, which makes spreading a breeze--therefore reducing irritation. Although It is completely non-comedogenic, it contains cetearyl alcohol. I believe this ingredient alone ranks 2/5 in comedogenicity. Anything with a rank below 3/5 is not considered comedogenic because the risk of pore-plugging is negligible. In order for cetearyl alcohol to be comedogenic, it must be combined with ceteareth-20 (which ranks 4/5). It is fragrance free and dye free. As with every other product, one that is perfect for one person may not be perfect for another. We each have our own needs. This lotion is good--and while perfect for Dan and others--not for me. At any rate, it is one of the best lotions you will find for use with the Regimen.
Horrible moisturizer , not for sensitive skin. After 3 days of redness and burned face I stopped using it and returned to the store.
Be careful with this line , its probably cheap ingredients that cause allergic reaction.
I have to say im disappointed with cetaphil because im a great fan of their facial cleanser but this sunscreen has let me down.. It is greasy and causes breakouts for me. I wouldnt recommend it to you..
I have been using this moisturizer in combo with Tactuo and quite honestly believed that the reason my face stung so much when I applied this on was due to the dryness of my face from the Tactuo. When I switched to a new moisturizer I realized the stinging was in part from the Cetaphil. On a sunny day if I'm going outside I will definitely use this as it noncomodogenic as well as having a built in sunscreen. When I'm staying inside though I would recommend a different moisturizer.
3 things. First thing I noticed when I applied it was the smell - it's got SPF 15, and you really can smell it! Second thing was a stinging sensation after applying, although I've been using it every day for over a month now and I really don't feel that anymore. Lastly, and most importantly, I'd say it's pretty heavy: I applied it today around 10 AM, it is now about to be 3PM, and my face still feels/looks super greasy! If it's just my face being oily, then I can't recommend this to anyone with oily skin. If it is indeed the product, then yeah, I definitely don't recommend this.
I have very oily skin with moderate acne and I just felt this product very greasy and kept randomly getting the taste of it in my mouth(must have been hungry..)
My skin felt much more greasy throughout the day and a bit heavy with it on.
Also burned the more sensitive areas of my face . I never really like the idea of sunscreen on my face either feels heavy.
I would recommend to try this anyway as everyone's skin is different and i can imagine if you have dry skin it would be great.
