    Tried this product in the store & seemed to like it. Once I brought it home and used after my morning shower, my skin feels like its burning. So glad Ulta let me return product & try something else.

        When my Mary Kay rep retired, I went to the local Ulta store and started using this product. It was excellent replacement for my Mary Kay!

            Comments about Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Cream SPF 20:

            I bought this product a few weeks ago while looking to diversify my routine away from Dermologica. This sounded right up my alley; best for dry skin (yes! I need some moisture in my life!) with an SPF (which other than the price tag is what I disliked about my previous product- no SPF). Initially it felt great going on, although I felt like I needed to use more product to cover my face. My biggest issue is the caked look my makeup gets when I use them together. I tried letting it soak in longer with no avail. I still have the box but no reciept, but I do think I will try to return for another product because I'm really just not that impressed.

            This is the second Exuviance moisturizer that I have purchased that disappointed. The first one (Hydra Firm) peeled off as I applied my foundation and felt like a mask. This one grabs by foundation and makes it appear caked. I have tried letting it soak in longer, and it still doesn't help. Going back tomorrow. :(

              I bought this product because of how much I love the Exuviance Restorative night cream. I'm not sure if I was putting too much product on my already oily skin but this face lotion did not work well for me. I would have break outs when I used it and my oily skin would be even more oily. I thought because it was the same brand, I could trust what it said it would do. I would recommend this product to someone with very dry or mature skin. A cheaper moisturizer works better for me in conjunction with the Restorative cream.

              • Q:

                Is this the only daily moisturizer from Exuviance? I love this brand but I'm not interested in any of the anti-aging products, I use the face wash and the nightly renewal gel.

                  A:

                  Exuviance offers several daytime moisturizers (Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Creme, Exuviance Multi-Protective Day Creme, Exuviance Sheer Refining Fluid, and Exuviance AGE REVERSE Day Repair) that are formulated for different skin types. All help address different skin concerns, including but not limited to aging skin. Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Creme is an excellent option for those with normal/combination skin. In addition to anti-aging benefits, this daily moisturizer also provides broad spectrum sun protection and helps brighten tone and smooth texture.

              • Q:

                what is the difference between this essential daily defense cream and the multi protective day cream?

                  A:

                  Essential Daily Defense Cream is ideal for non-sensitive, normal to combination skin since it is formulated with Glycolic Acid. For sensitive to dry skin types, we recommend Multi-Protective Day Creme which provides antiaging benefits without irritation.
