Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than olay I've tried almost every sunscreen out there, chemical and mineral. This stuff works. No shine no greasy feel and no white face.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the product but hate the smell. After using many DE products over the past couple of years I can say that I am a completely satisfied customer and cannot see myself wanting to use anything else. This moisturizer is perfect for me as it contains an SPF and absorbs better than some of the other moisturizers in its class. I am on my second bottle and somehow cannot seem to get past the smell. I don't remember the first bottle being this bad. It's just harsh, kind of like newspaper ink or something. I'm sure the SPF is to blame. Anyhow, I will continue to use this wonderful product in hopes that one day it will smell a little better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have used 3 bottles of this stuff and I will never use another product as my moisturizer. It is light and refreshing and protects my skin. It is soothing and great after using Desert Essence face wash. I love this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not fast absorbing. I love Desert Essence because they don't test on animals or use any sulfates or parabens or any other mainstream junk. That being said, this moisturizer is not what I hoped for, and I had high hopes because I love so many other DE products. My main problem is that this does not absorb into the skin very quickly at all, which means I can't use this under my makeup. Once it soaks into the skin, it's pretty nice. But for $18 I was expecting it to be nourishing AND fast-absorbing. I don't think I would repurchase it, but I'll use it up and see if by that time I like it a little better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a Fan I love this product. I use Desert Essence's gentle cleanser, then dry my face and use this moisturizer daily. I love that it has SPF, and yet no bad preservatives. It's very gentle and feels nice on the skin - extremely light but moisturizing. You don't need much product so a tube should last several months, well worth the cost. A wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zinc Oxide I was just reading that zinc oxide is what you really should look for in a sunscreen over titanium dioxide, and other chemicals.I ended up throwing out my old suncreens after reading the labels that had these chemicals that don't offer the full protection like zinc oxide does. This face cream in conjunction with the facewash, Gentle Nourishing Organic Cleanser both work well together. I had a small pesky blemish that I could not get rid of and had tried everything until I used this line and it finally went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Daytime Moisturizer This daytime moisturizer is great under foundation. It is completely non-irritating, which is rare. It's also hydrating without being oily. A real winner product!
