This product contains Zinc Oxide 3.0% sunscreen (physical SPF ingredient), so it will leave a white residue on your skin, especially when used in generous amounts. Physical SPFs by nature tend not to be moisturizing, but provide adequate sun protection. This lotion does not hydrate the skin sufficiently if using in conjunction with benzoyl peroxide on the Regimen. In order for this product to completely absorb, you need to gently rub it into the skin for a prolonged time, which causes irritation. The less time spent applying a product, the better, so this really is not a good option for the Regimen. I suggest a lotion with purely chemical SPF ingredients. After a chemical SPF is spread evenly across your skin, it will absorb on its own shorty, unlike a physical SPF, which requires that you rub it into the skin. Contains no fragrance but smells nice. Contains Oleth-3, a highly comedogenic ingredient, but listed as one of the last, if not the last, ingredients. Non-irritating formula. I do not recommend this product because I believe that the process is just as important as the products. The technique you must use in order to apply this product will irritate your skin. Do not use on the Regimen.
I thought it was working for my flakey skin, but 2-3 days later after I bought it, i got pimples in places where they wouldn't usually grow in. Got some on my chin too. I've been avoiding unhealthy foods this week so I'm guessing it's the moisturizer. Before I used this moisturizer my face wasn't peeling but after the moisturizer it peeled and burned. I have uneven skin tone now which sucks, regret using this! I will just use the moisturizer that comes with the kit. Please don't use this!!
I tried this one after it was brought back in 2010, since Dan recommended it with The Regimen. Sorry to say, it was the wrong choice for me: gave me milia in several places. I recommend DeVita Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF 30 + instead, which has been working well for me the past 4 years.
I used this product for 4 years and its ok it could be a little drying around my mouth area but i definately would not include this in a night time regimen bc the chemicals are harmful to sleep in and it could clog pores.
This is for the ORIGINAL sensitive skin formula (zinc oxide NOT avobenzone)- I've used this for years and it is extremely gentle on my sensitive skin, with the added SPF bonus. Only downside is it can be just a tad greasy sometimes, but not enough to make me stop using it
This is by far my favorite moisturizer. I've gone through several bottles already, applying a small amount every morning.
It's got a great consistency - not too runny, not too thick. This product wears well underneath makeup, and has never caused a breakout for me.
While an SPF of 15 is fine for average days, I'd love it more if it had an SPF of 30 or better. Overall though, it's a great product and definitely worth a shot.
I bought this because of Dan's recommendation. The zinc oxide makes my face flake like crazy all day long. I am also very pale (Scandinavian skin) and the zinc makes me look even paler, literally like a ghost. I would recommend Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Spf 30 over this product.
I was using this product then ran out and bought a new one and the new one made me break out like crazy. The one that worked was the one with the active ingredients being ocinoxate and zinc oxide. The one that made me break out the active ingredient was octyl salicylate.
Not for everyone, if you do try it introduce it for a day or two, observe anything new and if you get more acne than usual, discontinue immediately
