Breathe new life into tired, stressed skin. Over time, oxygen levels in your skin tend to decrease, leaving skin more dull and dry, potentially making you look older, faster. Philosophy skin labs have developed a lightweight oil-free SPF 30 moisturizer with exclusive clean-air technology to keep skin looking and feeling hydrated, energized, radiant and protected so it can breathe freely to help resist aging and recover from the signs of daily life.

Immediately, 91% of women felt fresh, smooth and petal-soft skin.* Over time, skin feels protected, more resistant to the signs of daily aggressors and doesn't reveal your busy lifestyle.

    After reading the reviews for this product, I was very excited to give it a try! But it was so disappointing for me. I have combo skin but this made even the dry parts of my skin extremely oily. After only a few hours I felt like a disgusting shiny mess. It was only worse under makeup. It did provide good sun protection, but I think I can find something better while still having this quality. If you have skin begging for moisture you could maybe give this a try. Otherwise I'd avoid it.

      This is finally the oil-free moisturizer I have been searching for. My skin is super sensitive and acne prone, but also dry. This lotion is perfect for my skin! And it has SPF in it (but doesn't stink like sunscreen ). Great buy!

            I had been looking for a lightweight moisturizer that had a good spf factor. Most of the ones I had tried smelled like sunscreen and had a heavy texture. This moisturizer changed everything! It's lightweight, not greasy, and does not smell like zinc oxide! I have used it daily for the past 5 months, and I love it!

              Anyone who knows me knows how meticulous I have had to be all my life with my insanely fussy combo oily/blemish/clog prone skin. The air so much as hits my face the wrong way and I have random breakouts out of nowhere lol. Per this I have totally had to become a skin care junkie and ingredient natzi endlessly trying out products over the years as if I was a beauty editor sadly. Took me forever to find a skincare routine to keep my skin balanced and spf had always been my Achilles heel as an understatement. No matter how the claims of light, oil free, matte, dry touch, won't clog etc etc I have tried every chemical, physical, drugstore, high end spf or moisturizer with spf out there with no luck. I'm either left with breakouts within the day or insanely clogged skin within the week just ruining all the hard work and time I put into my skincare. I get how important it is for sun protection and anti aging but at the cost of my sanity over the years so i really gave up wearing spf day to day and only on beach or hiking days where I was outside for long periods of time would I suck it up and deal with nightmare skin in wearing a good spf. Recently i started using Aha and Retinol Serums nightly as opposed to occassionally which has kept my skin clear and balanced to perfection but in that not wearing a daily spf wasn't something I could rationalize anymore. I haven't had luck with any other Philosophy brand products in the past per oils or just leaving my skin type way to moist and greasy but per the reviews and ingredients this one seemed like exactly what I had always been trying to find. This is the spf version of my dream staple regular moisturizer, Clinique DDMG. Why it's taken decades for anyone to come out with a gel cream texture even with spf eithout endless silicones and alcohol is beyond me. But there is nothing else like it on the market crazily. For that the price is beyond justified among it luckily going a very long way for the tiniest amount! A+++++

                  Now that warmer weather is here I need a light moisturizer with spf that I can apply solo or under makeup. I could not believe how well this works on its own and under other products. It truly dries down to invisible - not tacky and no white cast or greaseball feeling. I just grabbed a backup so I can make it through the summer.
