ok product

This product gives me good enough moisture protection, it is slight oily for summer weather. I used it in tandem withr with the gentle nourishing wash and I got zits, not sure whether it was the wash or this moisturizer.

Not bad, just weird

It's smell reminds me of play-doh, weirdly enough. There's something very sunscreen-y about this, even though it's only SPF15, it's not as hydrating as Desert Essence's other daily moisturiser. It's not horrible, don't get me wrong, and it doesn't interfere with my makeup, make me breakout or anything negative, there's just nothing about it that makes me think 'yes, I've found the moisturiser for me'. I won't be repurchasing this one.

Me encanta

Uso tanto ésta crema para piel mixta como su versión para piel seca. Y ambas me aportan hidratación y protegen mi piel. Un defecto....tengo que esperar mucho para poder maquillarme
