Comments about Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Cream SPF 20:

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. :(

    Comments about Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Cream SPF 20:

    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.

      Comments about Exuviance Essential Daily Defense Cream SPF 20:

      have been using as my daily moisturizer at the rec of my dermatologist. Definitely think it is great at fighting aging and preventing clogged poors.
      New formula is much thicker than the old formula which I think was nicer for daily use under make-up but this still works.
      Con - you can't tell when you are getting close to running out with the new bottle design because it is opaque and you can't take the lid off.

          It was OK but I see difference and it crumbled when I would but on my very light weight face make up. However, I am sure it's right for somebody.

            This stuff makes my skin feel like it's burning and stinging! Plus it doesn't absorb well, so trying to put make up on after it dries ( which takes forever) makes it turn pilly. I even use an exuviance brand concealer and it gets so gross I have to wash everything off and start over. Complete waste of money.

                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.
