sun protection with zinc oxide, but no white cast!
maybe it's the zinc oxide which is supposed to sit on the skin as protective layer, but once i actually put it on and rubbed it in, it didn't have the rich moisture feel i was expecting - my skin looked fine but it felt dry!
smell isn't great, but it's not so strong that it's gross or anything
since i spent the money and don't want to waste it, i've been mixing it with another face-friendly lotion and the dry feeling is much more tolerable. i think next time i will try the green beaver green tea moisturizer and use my devita spf

I like that this moisturizer uses zinc oxide as its sunscreen, which is supposed to be the healthier choice. The moisturizer goes on easily and doesn't need rubbing in--no white streaks. It has a pleasant smell and texture. It moisturizes my dry skin and doesn't irritate.

Love this cream. Purchased it after it received a 1 rating on the EWG's Skin Deep guide, the lowest rating possible for something with sunscreen. Have had a hard time finding natural products with the SPF I need for my pale Irish skin! This cream is great, thick enough to provide good moisture but not greasy and absorbs quickly so you can put your makeup on right away. A little goes a long way.

Amazing natural product!!! i love that there is spf in it so you protect your skin from the sun at the same time as you nourish it with all theses wonderful ingredients. The argan oil is so good for the skin and i love the way it feels on my skin it leaves it so soft and glowing. This moisturizer is amazing i dont know how i ever lived without it before because i cant live without it now. If you are looking for a natural face moisturizer then i would recommend this one.
