This is a very nice face lotion! It's light enough and dries quite fast, even with my oily skin. My make up sets nicely over it, and after a whole day, my face was not any shinier than usual. Typically SPF lotions are thicker and my skin reacts to them with more oil production, it didn't happen with this lotion. I even let my pre-teen daughter use it, and she loves it.

I like the packaging, it comes with a pump and the bottle isn't too big. I do find it to be a little greasy and it never fully absorbs into the skin. It leaves a white cast behind as most sunscreens do. I received this product for consideration and I don't think I would be purchasing.

I got this product from Glam Sense to test out and give my own personal opinion. This face cream is light and not oily at all. It protects my face when I don't put any makeup on or when I need protection before applying any. It does not give me any zits either which is a bonus.

Bao-Van, Langley, BC, Jun 14, 2017

A nice facial lotion that was not greasy or heavily scented. I liked that it pumped out nicely and was not too thin and went on well. I have early 40’s Asian combination skin and found that my skin was not greasy feeling afterwards. Only thing I noticed was that there seemed to be a warming sensation after I applied the lotion for the first few weeks, but no rashes, redness or discomfort ever occurred.

Tania, Oujé, QC, Jun 14, 2017

The moisturizer was very hydrating although it left a greasy film on my skin. It did not irritate sensitive skin. Would definitely use in the winter when the temperature is harsher, but it feels a little heavy for the summer time. The packaging was efficient though, the pump allows great distribution and no contamination of the product. Plus, a little goes a long way ! La lotion était très hydratante, mais elle laissait une sensation grasse sur la peau. Elle n'irrite pas la peau sensible. Elle serait de bon usage pendant l'hiver quand les température sont plus froide et sèche. Cependant, pour l'été, j'ai l'impression que c'est un peu trop lourd sur la peau. La petite pompe rend la distribution du produit très efficace et hygiénique. Un peu de produit est suffisant pour une bonne couvrance.

Jennie, Richmond, BC, Jun 14, 2017

I got this for review purposes and was pleasantly surprised! It is lightweight and non-greasy, and my face is protected from the sun! It has worked its way into my daily routine.

Christie, Toronto, ON, Jun 14, 2017

This facial lotion was amazing, made my skin soft and didn't break it out. Most products give me crazy acne and this didn't so that was nice. my only wish is that the spf was higher as I burn incredibly easily and need more than spf15

Melissa, Sudbury, ON, Jun 13, 2017

I got this as a sample to use and test out. I like this when the days at work are very busy and i don't put on makeup. This helps my skin and keeps a guard on the elements for the day. I do find it very thick so be sure not to use a lot. it has a very clean smell.

Melissa, Duncan, BC, Jun 13, 2017

I received this free to try from GlamSense for my honest review. I was excited for the opportunity and have not been disappointed. A little goes a long way. So although slightly expensive it will last a long time and is better for your skin as it does not clog your pores. It comes with a pump that locks so you can put it in your bag and not worry about it leaking. I see some people say it leaves their skin tacky but I did not really notice that. I found my face felt fresh and it does moisturize really well. As a bonus it has SPF in it.

LaFelina, Kingston, ON, Jun 13, 2017

The thing I like the most about this moisturizer is that it's surprisingly not greasy looking on my skin. I have oily skin and moisturizers with SPF in them generally make my skin way too oily but this one was pretty good in that regard. I also did not notice any white cast which is common for SPF moisturizers. It's non-comedogenic which means it won't clog pores which is music to my ears as someone who has to be careful what they put on their face. I love the packaging. The pump is great and a little product goes a long way. It's a light consistency and has no scent. I haven't had any issues with this moisturizer. I think it's great if you are looking for something unscented, for sensitive skin, or if you're acne prone, but want a little sun protection. *I received this product free in exchange for my honest review.

stephanie, Nanaimo, BC, Jun 12, 2017

I found this lotion to be great, however it made me greasy really quick. Like within 2 hours of wear. Didn't sit well under foundation for me either.

Sara, Ottawa, ON, Jun 08, 2017

I expected more from this moisturizer. It's very light, and I'm super glad it has SPF, but that's about all the nice things I can say about it. I find it very greasy, and am not really crazy about what it's done for my skin. It's fine and does it's job, but I definitely need something more. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.

Cal, Burnaby, BC, Jun 07, 2017

I got this from the Glamsense program. While I liked that this product is noncomedogenic, I prefer mineral based sunscreen instead of chemical, like this product has. It also made my makeup look a bit odd. Other than that, it is easy to use with a convenient pump.

Heather, Toronto, ON, Jun 07, 2017

I'm pretty happy with the performance of this moisturizer--it is non-greasy, goes on nicely, and has an SPF rating of 15. However, I find that it leaves my makeup looking a little cakey if I am wearing more than a light powder. The pump bottle is also super handy!

Crystal, Angus, ON, Jun 07, 2017

Wonderful moisturizer. Literally the only facial moisturizer with an SPF that doesn't make my face itch like crazy. I have pretty oily skin, and althpugh im a littlw oilier at the end of the day with this, as opposed to without, it is nothing a little blotting can't fix. I received this product from the glamsense program in exchange for my fair and honest review, but I honestly am really enjoying it. Wish it had more SPF though.

Deanna, Toronto, ON, Jun 02, 2017

I absolutely love this moisturizer. I have somewhat sensitive skin and tend to break out when I introduce new moisturizers in my routine but this is a non greasy or oily lotion that goes on my skin like a dream. It makes my skin feel so soft and healthy looking and lasts all day. I like the fact that it is SPF 15, that always helps in a moisturizer. I also like the pump bottle that it's in for easy use. When I am done my bottle, I will be buying another

Tara, Sherwood Park, AB, Jun 01, 2017

Received this from Glam Sense - it's one of the better AM moisturizers I've used. Some moisturizers with SPF can leave my skin feeling tacky after application but this one seems to sink in nicely. It also doesn't feel too heavy so I like it. So far it plays well with my makeup as well, as my foundation does not break up when I use this moisturizer.

Maria dias, Toronto, ON, Jun 01, 2017

Received this product through glam sense in good time too with spring here I needed something to protect my skin from the sun I have tested this out for two weeks and have come to love it it's applies beautifully under make up which is a bonus because I love to wear makeup and sometimes this products with spf counteract and separate the foundation I highly recommend

Tiffany, Surrey, BC, May 30, 2017

I got this product for free from Glam Sense and Cetaphil to try for free. This is an honest review of what i thought about the product. The daily facial moisturizer is oil free, light weight and fragrance free so good for all skin types. It also has an SPF 15 which is great because sunscreens smell awful and  tend to be greasy so I don't like to use them on my face. Having the Spf in the moisturizer is great and one less thing I need to worry about.

Elisa, Toronto , ON, May 30, 2017

I received this product to try for free from Glam Sense for my honest review. I've tried many different moisturizers with SPF for my oily/ combo, acne prone skin and this one is comparable to most other brands. One pump (great that it comes with a pump that closes) is more than enough for the face and neck (maybe even a bit too much) so a bottle should last you a while. It takes a few minutes to absorb into the skin and I find it does leave a bit of a tackiness/ oily feeling behind which is common with SPF face creams. My face also had a light sheen to it after application which I didn't like but it was not as bad as some other brands. It didn't make me more oily than normal throughout the day and so far I have not broken out from it. It also layers under makeup with no issues. The scent is barely noticeable which is nice and it does moisturizer well. If you have drier skin or it's wintertime I think this would be good but, for me it was just average.

Greer, Edmonton, AB, May 25, 2017

I love the pump because it dispenses the product easily and without having to stick your fingers into a pot. The lotion itself applies nicely and doesn't feel greasy under makeup or by itself. My only complaint is that when I have small abrasions or super dry spots this lotion slightly burns.I haven't noticed any adverse effects from using this product and will continue using it throughout the summer!

Nita, Surrey , BC, May 25, 2017

I am really enjoying the Cetaphil SPF 15 Daily Facial Moisturizer. I have been using it during the day, as it contains SPF. I suffer from oily skin, and I love how this moisturizer absorbs quickly into my skin and leaves it feeling plump. Many moisturizers that are intended for oily skin have a matte finish, but this product gives my skin a very beautiful natural glow! Not all of us with oily skin like looking matte all of the time - I love that I can look dewy without looking oily. Also, I have noticed that I don't get as oily throughout the day when wearing this moisturizer. As far as I can tell, there is no scent to this product.

Winiesha, Toronto, ON, May 25, 2017

I love moisturizers with added SPF because I have hyperpigmentation on my face and like to make sure it's protected from the sun all year. This was very moisturizing, went on smoothly, and works great under makeup. However, I don't think it's ideal for oily skin. I have very oily skin and this left me shiny as soon as I put it on. It still looks good with makeup though, as long as I use a good primer. Overall I like the product.

Sydney, Mississauga , ON, May 23, 2017

This smells a little like sunscreen, which is understandable, but it fits well with makeup. Have to still blot during the day a bit but overall it works well :) I wear it daily.

Melanie, Niagara, ON, May 22, 2017

I like the concept of spf in a cetaphil facial moisturizer. This left a sheen on my oily skin but did keep it moisturized. It wears well under a makeup primer but does not help with oil control. I would recommend this more for people with dry or combination skin types.

Emily, Coquitlam, BC, May 20, 2017

You had me at oil-free and fragrance free! Perfect for anyone and I love that it has SPF to protect my skin. Great for under makeup as well.

Sumayya, Scarborough, ON, May 19, 2017

I washed my face with the Cetaphil oily skin cleanser and then used this as my moisturizer. I used one pump and that was more than enough for my entire face. I think next time I'll use half a pump. I found this to be a tad bit sticky right after application, but keep in mind that this may be because I used too much. It dries pretty nicely and doesn't feel greasy right afterward. However, an hour later my face felt like a greaseball. I give this a 5 out of 10.

How to Use

Before daily exposure to the sun, apply lotion to face. For additional protection, extend lotion to the ear and neck area.
