Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product A few months ago, I had basal cell carcinoma on my neck as well as several precancerous spots removed from my face. I had the Mohs procedure done on my neck to remove the basal cell carcinoma. I'm in my early 40s and was totally taken by surprise. So I went in search of a daily moisturizer with SPF that didn't have harmful chemicals. I tried a few but didn't like how they felt on my face -- too thick, too 'cakey', etc. I decided to try this and have been using it for about a month now. I really do like it alot. It has a vague fresh smell that doesn't linger all day like some of them do, and it makes my skin feel very smooth. I just wanted to share...!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yellow skin I started using this product about 2 months ago. The fragrance was tolerable, the skin feel was slightly sticky, but both were acceptable. Then someone I hadn't seen for a while asked whether I was ill because my skin looked very yellow to her. I had noticed a yellow color on my towels but it washed out so I didn't think too much about it. Perhaps it's just my own skin's reaction to something in this product but I don't want to go around looking jaundiced so I've quit using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Fit I have been searching for a light-weight sunscreen for my face, and this is the perfect fit. The non-greasy feel of the lotion, the protection of a sunblock, and the slightly citrus fragrance combine to make a perfect product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Winter!!! It's great for winter and autumn. Possibly spring. Since it contains oil, I may be apprehensive about Summer which is another story.. ;) Def. a great product!
