annoying to rub in...

why is like every moisturizer w/ spf15 a pain in the booty to rub in... i don't get it does the sunscreen make it super thick or something ?

I don't know. I don't find them difficult to rub in. I just sort of dot it around my skin, and very gently smooth it on using outward strokes.

Maybe you are using too much moisturizer??

My moisturizers are easy to rub in. It's the BP that's the hard part! Now that it's getting humid and I can't seem to find a dry room to do my regimen, the BP takes about 15 minutes to rub in satisfactorily.

yeah man i found that too with spf moisturizers. i have to use a massive amount to prevent my face getting flaky or tight. i found that if i mix a small amount of my neutrogena oil free w/ spf with an AHA moisturizer (i use eucerin dry skin w/ 5% urea and lactic acid and sometimes neutrogena healthy skin) it helps a lot.

well i changed the way i applied the moisturizer (small blotches in each area) and it seemed to rub in much better... also i think i used a little less so maybe the method of me applying it was screwing it all up
