I have dry skin, and this works perfectly as a daily moisturizer. It even removes a step from my routine (before I would apply moisturizer then sunscreen, this is effectively both). It doesn't melt into my mouth.
It does make my face shiny --there's no getting around it- but that doesn't bother me.
My mother hates the gunky texture of the SPF 15, and she uses the SPF 50 "fluide extreme" which is a drier formula, over a moisturizer. She warns that you have to let your moisturizer fully absorb before applying the sunscreen or else it all pills up and rubs off your face like eraser sweepings.

UVA rays are contant throughout the year, UVB rays are based on actual intensity of sunlight. This is the best UVA sun protection on the market because of the combination of Memorex AND Avobenzone. To increase the UVB (SPF from 15 to 50) you would need to add either Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, or Oxybenzone for UVB protection.

In America, I believe the FDA has not approved the combined use of Avobenzone with Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide together in the same sunscreen. I don't see why Oxybenzone, Avobenzone, and Memorex SR can't be combined, perhaps too many chemicals in one lotion imposes unforesen harm. This is why in order to raise the SPF and keep the sunscreen safe by FDA standards, it's either Avobenzone or sacrificing a little UVA to up the UVB.

During winter, the UVB threat is lower than summertime, but the UVA threat is merely unchanged, so use this in winter. I hope this helps.

I have used this product for 4 years, ordering an SPF40 formula from overseas (Canada and Poland). When the active ingredient Mexoryl was approved for sale in America, I was excited because I thought it would be cheaper and easier to get. My dermatologist and my own online research have shown Mexoryl is great, so I wanted to use this particular product. However, the formula sold in America is TOTALLY different. The SPF is only 15, which could mean the other cream I had overstated the SPF level? I don't know, but I never got burned and my melasma (darkening due to sun exposure) did not get worse with the other formula. The biggest drawback with the American formula is GREASE. I loved the other formula because I have combination skin with very dry cheeks and it was moisturizing, but very light. Even on my dry cheeks, this stuff is slimy. I'm going to try to find the other formula. I used to pay about $50 total, even with shipping.

I have stage 3B Melanoma, the most deadly of skin cancers. I started using this sunscreen shortly after diagnosis. It is wonderful. I am a golfer and camper and am still out in the sun a lot. I have never gotten any sunburn since I started using this. My biggest complaint about sunscreen was that it made my skin greasy. This does not and at SPF 15, it completely protects me. My 89-year old Mom started using it also, after being an avid Clinique user for many years. She is so impressed.

I have Rosacea very red dry sensitive skin. I've tried just about every moisturizing cream out on the market. In my opinion this is the best for my face. I'ts very light nongreasy it doesn't burn, clog my pores, or cause my makeup to cake up.

My doctor recommended this product as a better means to keep from getting sun damage. He was right. I've tried many products, but most fell short of expectations. They either didn't last long or left my head feeling like it had survived the Exxon Valdiz spill. This is a great product that doesn't leave your face and head (I shave my head, so protection from the sun is very important) feeling greasy. I've even got my wife using it.

I received the product quickly and without incident.

First, I wish this didn't feel so greasy on my face. I don't have oily skin, but this makes my face feel slick and heavy. I tried the new Neutrogena age defying in spf 45 with helioplex and like it much better. I did use the Eucerin spf 30 for years and was also happy with that, but was looking for more broad spectrum protection.

Second, they should make this in a higher spf, in my opinion. Is this Mexoryl so protective that it negates the need for an spf 30; is spf 15 enough? I am no dermatologist, so I don't know the science behind all of this...Just basing this opinion on common sense.

My dermatologist recommended it and I was skeptical being that I have never found a face sunscreen which did not make me breakout. It offers great sun protection, even at SPF 15 and it feels good on my skin and has never clogged my pores. I wear it everyday and it keeps my skin both moisturized and protected. I have been using it almost a year now and I am very pleased with it. I noticed some of the other comments complaining it was heavy or greasy, but I have not had a problem with this.
