I purchased this moisturizer earlier this year, in hopes that it would be great SPF coverage. I'm always interested in Cetaphil products because of their popularity among people with sensitive or acne-prone skin. The active ingredients listed on the product are: octinoxate (7.5%), octisalate (5%), octocrylene (7%), oxybenzone (6%), titanium dioxide (5.7%). Sorry if you sensitive to any of these ingredients!
At first, I really liked the packaging, but I sometimes experienced difficulty getting the right amount out of the pump. (As if the pump were stuck or something. However, I press on things very lightly so perhaps its just me!)
Here's a photo of the moisturizer on my hand, then lightly blended. Initially, I really liked this moisturizer - it is light, and not greasy and has a light sunscreen smell which I don't mind. It didn't appear to affect any of my makeup or flashback in photos either. However, after a few weeks of use, I realized this was the culprit in my oily t-zone at the end of the day. (If you look at some photos from February, you can see a slight sheen!)
Here you can see how there is a bit of shine and sparkle even on my hand once I've blended this in. I think this moisturizer is worth a try if you have dry or dull skin - perhaps it may add some radiance! If you are oily however, I would stay away!
I would not repurchase this moisturizer, but my boyfriend is happy to use it and doesn't have any complaints. I may try it again in summer just for SPF protection as well.
What are your favorite products with SPF? Do you think I should do a skincare post?
