Not Sure How I Feel...
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.

Very Moisturizing
SPF Protection
Non Comedogenic


Stings/Burns upon application
Takes a while to absorb

I bought this moisturizer for the SPF protection and because it didn't have any other acne fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid in it, which can over dry your skin. It really helps my skin stay hydrated and gives it a nice glow, but it does sting a little upon application (doesn't last very long) and takes a while to absorb. I will continue using this product unless I find one that offers the same benefits without the side effects.

- moisturizes well


- burns at first, but it goes away after a minute
- greasy & shiny-looking skin

When I used this moisturizer for the first time, I thought that it was expired or something because it burned! That never happened before with a moisturizer. I stopped using it for a few days and then I used it again. The burning sensation happened again, but I decided to keep it on to see what happens. It went away after about a minute or so. I have been using it every day for a month now, and the burning sensation only happens every now and then, but it does not cause any other harm. It does a good job of moisturizing. I use it at night because it leaves my skin very soft in the morning. However, I don't like using it during the day because it is a little greasy. It's not the worst moisturizer and I will finish the bottle, but I probably will not purchase it again.

- SPF protection
- Goes on smooth
- Decent job preventing flakes
- Has not caused breakouts
- Goes on shiny but dries


- The dispenser is not good for traveling
- Could moisturize more
- Burns if it gets in your eyes (like all sunscreen)

I really wanted SPF in my moisturizer, so I got this one even though acne.org says it can sometimes cause breakouts. I wanted to give it a try. This moisturizer is pretty thick, and it does keep my flakes at bay. It could be a bit more moisturizing, though. I don't notice a whole lot of shine once this product dries. I have not had any breakouts since using it. DO NOT put it anywhere near your undereye or eyelid area. Inevitably, some will get in your eye and it REALLY STINGS. It does not sting on my face, but boy does it irritate the eyes.

- It did its job (kept my skin from dryness)


- Very oily
- Left a little residue

The main issue is how oily my face looked. My skin has always been naturally oily but this moisturizer made my skin look like the freaking Sun especially in my forehead. I also felt that it did not properly cover up the BP. Lastly there are times when I forget to wash my hands after moisturizing so if I itch my eyes it burns a lot. I have been on this product for 4 months but plan to switch to the CaraVe lotion asap.

Very quenching on my recently (within the last 6 months) dry skin, especially when I add jojoba oil.


The moisture doesn't last till the next time I need to apply it.

If you need a LOT of moisture, this isn't your product. I'll use this up, but I'll keep an eye out for something that works for longer on my face.

Moisturizes skin, doesn't make my skin break out


Stings my skin

Sometimes it really stings when I put this stuff on! It always stings a little, but the second my skin gets a little extra sensitive, ouch. It does moisturize alright, but I just wish it wouldn't sting.

the combo oily daily cleanser dries out my face. the moisturizer doesnt help and makes my face look greasy.
