It's lightweight, easy to apply, and hydrates OK, but it doesn't absorb. It leaves white residue, partly because of the titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, but it's just a bad formula. I believe that a good formula, which contains these ingredients, would prevent this. For example, the Olay lotion that I reviewed contains zinc oxide, but it doesn't make my skin look chalky. This one dries in streaks, and it clumps up with benzoyl peroxide on the sides of my nose, around my lips, and across my jawline.
Maybe this product works well for somebody who's not on the Regimen, but I found it to be absolutely useless. It's not moisturizing, even when combined with Jojoba and extra non-SPF moisturizer, which is bad enough, but the worst part was the WHITENESS. It absolutely would NOT rub in anywhere on my face, leaving me looking like a ghost. I had to rub my skin harshly (not good if you are on the Regimen) just to get the whiteness to somewhat fade away. And when my skin would flake later in the day--which it invariably would, since this wasn't moisturizing at all--it would flake WHITE, like dandruff coming from my face. Gross.
This is the best SPF moisturizer that I have found. It is more sunscreen than moisturizer though. This is good though, because it means that it won't leave you with much noticable shine throughout the day. However, this is a product for people with dry-normal skin who require moisturization. If you have oily skin and want to control your shine during the day, try a normal sunscreen, like Neutrogena Ultra sheer (spf 30 is best). The physical blockers zinc and titanium in the Eucerin are nice because you don't have to reapply them as often as you would with a normal sunscreen. However if you have darker skin, this sunscreen might make you look white. Just make sure you are using the right amount. You only need to use a little bit to get the protection. I suggest watching the dermtv video on applying chem free sunscreen. You can find it on youtube. I used this sunscreen throughout my accutane course. Good SPF moisturizers are hard to come by.
I really hate this product and i regret buying it. I have dry skin and this dried it out even more. It has a greasy, thick feeling when applied to the skin which i hate. It also leaves a white cast on your face but it doesnt last all day. I really dont like it and it was a complete waste of time
I have tried many, many products but break out from 99% of them. This is the FIRST moisturizer that does not break me out, and it gives me sun protection. I will use this until they stop making it!
Bottom line is that it says what it does! It moisturizes and it is very gentle. It may seem heavy, but personally I think people should use too much of this product - a little goes a long way, I use about a quart to a half of a pump for my whole face. One full pump is WAY too much - enough to cover both my arms! And that is saying a lot considering I have dry skin.
It doesn't aggravate my acne which is awesome, so I don't need to worry about that in addiction to the acne I have! ^_^
About the whitish film? I think that is the Zinc Oxide, so just rub it in. You will see the white residue. Wait for a few minutes and it generally disappears.
It's a good buy considering it is 4 oz with an high spf for only $8. Most have it more expensive and for a smaller bottle.
This product is pricey and not good for an every day facial moisturizer. This would be a great sunscreen for those hot summer days by the pool. Overall I was disappointed.
i will purchase this product again!!
I don't know how anyone could say that this does not moisturize. I have been using it for over a year, and I have very dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. It provides the exact ammount of moisture that I need (especially right after torturing my skin with acne products and harsh treatments) without making it oily and causing more breakouts.
