    Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

    I love this SPF! I hate sunscreen for my face because it always makes me break out. This stuff is amazing though! I'm on my second bottle and I'll always come back to in even though it's pricey.

    Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

    I like this for everyday wear because it absorbs well, doesn't leave a greasy film, and contains 30 spf. I haven't noticed any particular improvement in my skin from the oxygen, but I haven't had it that long. My only complaint is the smell. I'm surprised at Philosophy having a product that doesn't smell lovely. This product smells a bit unpleasant.

      Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

      I have used the original formula for years and love it. I have read multiple reviews how this product smells bad and it's runny, I almost didn't purchase it but figured to give it a try myself. Glad I did. I was looking for something with a higher spi for summer and so far I have no issues with it. The smell is not the same as the original but it's not stinky, maybe a little sunscreen smell but then it does have sunscreen in it. The consistency is nice, it's not runny. I store the bottle upside down so a bunch doesn't come out at one time.

            I wear this everyday for sun protection because I have had basal cell carcinoma. I love how it mosturizes as well as protects my skin. Best of all, I have had no adverse reactions to using this product, and I have VERY SENSTIVE skin!

              Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

              I found the other Philosophy moisturizers to be a bit too heavy for daytime use, and I wanted something that had SPF. Take a Deep Breath seemed like the obvious choice, and it has been a winner. Except for the truly awful packaging.

              As has been noted by other reviewers, the tube allows for WAY too much product to come out, and sure, I've learned how to work around that, but at this price point, I shouldn't be making work-arounds. (By the way, I simply store it and open it upside down. I've found that to be effective. Go figure.)

              Love this stuff, but I'm honestly considering a switch to something that has a tube that doesn't require a ~process~ when it's time to apply.

                Comments about Philosophy Take a Deep Breath SPF 30:

                I use Purity Cleanser, When Hope is not Enough Serum, followed by Hope In A Jar moisturizer daily and I love all of these products. My skin looks and feels so much healthier after using this regimen. I ordered this in hopes of replacing my Hope In A Jar moisturizer which is almost out, only because I wanted something with sunscreen.
                I've tried the Take a Deep Breath product twice. The first time, I used it following the Purity cleanser and the Serum, and my cheeks turned red and blotchy. I tried it again a couple of days later and instead used it directly after cleansing, skipping the serum. I again got red blotches all over my cheeks. This product doesn't work for me. I plan on exchanging it for some of my tried and true Hope In a Jar... or maybe some of the new Renewed Hope I a Jar ;)
