Wouldn't use anything else.
My skin is very sensitive and acne-prone. A lot of moisturizers and sunscreens burn my face, this does not. It goes on very white but that goes away quickly. I have noticed that it does leave my skin feeling a little greasy and sometimes have to use an additional moisturizer, but I have never been sunburned! Highly recommend!

- Does not break me out
- The obvious sun protection


- Leaves a whitish sheen (but can be fixed)
- Doesn't really absorb into the skin

I bought this after reading Dan's recommendation on what kind of SPF to buy; the only reason I am using this is because I am using BP, which strips the skin of any natural sun block, and I live in Australia; we have a giant hole in the Ozone so need to be even more careful about skin cancer. It is slightly thinner than normal sunscreens and definitely not greasy, but is still a little thick in texture. After I apply it, it doesn't really absorb and just sits on my skin, so there is a kind of white film on my skin. Thank god I found a way to circumvent this: I apply this immediately after I apply moisturiser, before my moisturiser has had time to sink in or dry. This way it goes on very smoothly and just absorbs right along with my moisturiser =) I have been using this for over a month now and it hasn't broken me out! However, I think by itself it is definitely not moisturising enough if you are on the regimen. I apply this in the morning and by 2 or 3 pm my skin would flake =( If you need to use a SPF, I would highly recommend this one, but definitely remember to pair it with a good moisturiser! Good luck! =)

-lightweight. blends right into skin, forget its there all day
-non-greasy. not greasy at all, more like a lotion than a sunscreen
-only need a little
-high spf
-double as sunscreen and moisturizer
-nice smell
-did'nt break out skin


no complains so far for me!

This is my first daily moisturizer / sunscreen. I was afraid I put something on my face in the morning for fear of breaking out, but my skin stayed clear on this product. It's non-greasy and sinks right into skin with no residue, so you forget its even there. Highly recommend this product.

Moisturizes well
SPF 30
Overall great


A bit costly

My favourite moisturizer! Used this for years and never had any problems with it, then I decided to switch to an Aveeno Active Naturals SPF 30 moisturizer which caused me to get acne for the first time in my life! So of course I'll be switching back. I absolutely love this moisturizer, never had any problems with it! I always have to pay around $18 for it, but it lasts a long time so I don't mind. Would recommend!

Good moisturizer, not greasy, absorbs quickly


Only comes in small size

My go-to SPF moisturizer during the day. Moisturizes enough to offset the drying effects of the 2.5% benzoyl peroxide face cream I use daily. Really is mild for sensitive skin; never any burning or irritation. Has not irritated my skin in the months I've used it.

absorbs quick, not greasy at all, does not stay white like other spf's


The only problem I had with it were that it only seems to come in a small size.

This moisturizer is great! Never got to try the "original" original SPF 15 Olay, but I did buy the "classic gentle formula" tried it on my hands and it felt greasy and tacky compared to this SPF 30. The SPF 30 still uses zinc oxide along with octocrylene and others. It absorbs quick and is usually never greasy or tacky feeling.
