Cons: gooey and thick, irritating to my skin, leaves skin looking pasty

I hate to give bad reviews, but I dislike - no make that hate, this moisturizer. It does not look like moisturizer, feel like moisturizer, or actually moisturize.

If you've ever used the white, gooey sunscreen, then you know what this moisturizer looks and feels like. I can understand adding SPF protection to a moisturizer, but not to the point where it looks and feels like a pasty mess.

The moisturizer left my skin looking pasty and it didn't feel the least bit moisturizing. It was irritating to my sensitive, dry skin and after about 30 minutes, I had to wash it off. It felt like it was burning my skin so it may be that I am allergic to the SPF used in the product.

The SPF protection is a mineral-based sun protection and if that is important to you, it may suit you better than it does me. It is fragrance free and has no dyes added, so it does have those two things going for it.

The product claim is that it is lightweight and emollient but I didn't find it to be either. I can't think of any circumstance that would convince me to use this product again.
