I've always been a fan of the JM brand but this mineral spf moisturizer has stood out for me in allowing me to have a completely healthy clean spf product for my insanely fussy oily blemish prone skin. Spf has always been my Achilles heels no matter how flawless and balanced my skin has been from alot of effort on my clean natural skoicare routine. All spfs chemical and physical on the market would always break me out and ruin all the hard work of my skincare all my life. It was the most frustrating thing as spf is crucial for anti aging and sun protection but so many like myself feel so defeated in how hard it is to find one that doesnt literally ruin your skin (I would deal with just greasiness). I didnt have the luxury of being picky and had used a Korean chemical SPF for years as it was the only that never cause problems but at the end of the day I really have wanted to find a natural mineral product for health longterm which is the equivalent of pigs flying for just about all zinc on the market. I get by nature mineral spfs will always have to be thicker/slightly whitening if truly offering good protection but at the same time walking around feeling like you have a smothering mask on and being completely congested, broken out, and greasy isnt fun for anyone. Zinc spfs are either like diaper cream or the lighter ones are overflowing with silicones which break many people out like myself. This regular untinted spf 47 formula is the ONLY that has never caused problems for me and used as my morning moisturizer leaves my skin hydrated with a natural satin finish. Even with the oils and few silicones and my oily prone skin I am baffled how well it absorbs as I was really worried it would be too heavy for me but per desperation and love of the brand gave it a try even not having dry skin. PLEASE never change this formula as many like myself with super fussy skin would be absolutely heartbroken per how unique and rare the formula is. Thank you!!!
Took me forever to realize that this product was causing my breakouts. I had fallen in love with how this felt on my skin, being a physical sunscreen they can be really drying, or feel uncomfortable. But not this one, it isnt greasy, absolutely no white cast on my light tan skin( I'm mixed) and leaves my skin soft n moisturized throughout the day. Makeup also goes on well on top of it. I do think that this is best suited for normal/dry skin. Since it's an oil based sunscreen most probably wouldn't like it for oily/combination skin. I have the odd combo of dry/acne prone skin, so this initially worked really well but come to find out it was really causing me to breakout. The ingredient ethylhexyl palmitate is very pore clogging, and is a derivative from palm oil. Which should be ethically and sustainably sourced bc of deforestation, n animal cruelty due to the harvesting of palm oil. Or honestly just not used at all. Other info shows ethylhexyl palmitate can cause acne if overused or if its in large amounts in a product. Well this is the second listed ingredient in this product, n being a sunscreen ur suppose to wear this everyday rain or shine. I was pretty bummed that this caused acne, but since I've stopped using this my skin has completely gotten clearer which I'm way more happy about. If you have dry skin and are not acne prone you should definitely try this out, but either way i would still be cautious of the ethylhexyl palmitate.

I have fair, sensitive, redness prone, combination and acne prone skin. I feel like the minerals in this really help diffuse the redness and blemishes. I also love the argan oil in winter. It does get a little oily around T-zone at times but I just use a dusting of powder or blotting sheets in that area.

Love this sunscreen! It does has a tendency to be a little difficult to apply sometimes. If you have an oil on before it's very easy to blend out, otherwise a patting motion is best to apply it. It does have a slight white cast but it goes away after a few minutes and if you have an oil on your face it won't leave any white cast at all!
I never buy chemical sunscreens so a natural spf like Josie uses are my favorite!

I really like this moistureizer/sunscreen product. I have dry skin and it is a good final layer for day time, especially in the colder &drier months. It takes a bit of work to rub it in until the white caste disappears but I think it's worth it. I have used it for several years.

I have very dry skin. I have been looking for a moisturizer with SPF that's higher than 30 but does not make me look greasy. this has been the best thing I have ever bought. I wish I had discovered it sooner. S/o to Susan Yara for recommending this!

Very smooth and not greasy!
Freya from Massachusetts
I came to the Ulta website looking for a daily facial moisturizer with the following characteristics: 1. At least SPF 30; 2. Titanium and/or zinc, not chemical sunscreen; 3. No animal testing; and 4. Highly rated. This was the least expensive product meeting all of those criteria. And wow, it's fantastic! It feels great going on and has a very mild scent. I am very happy with it.

As an older woman, 78, I definitely need the moisture protection. However, the added protection from the sun' rays are extremely important.

Love this Argan,Zinc and Titanium formula. Love the SPF of 47. Please don't stop making this. I would like the larger bottle that I have ordered in the past. Love it under my makeup. I don't even wear foundation anymore, just some concealer in a few places.

Hi. I mainly order d because of the face cream. I ordered the stick blush and quite frankly it's AWFUL. Who wants a menthol smell on their face? Plus it's hard to blend. Stick to your butters and creams...sorry

My sisters love these sunscreens and they just repurchase them when I got the 20%off coupon. Who wouldn't want to have a moisturizer has sunscreen with a light foundation covered...This is THE ONE.

Makes my skin look and feel smoother and more hydrated, with high spf factor to protect. I have had precancerous growths removed so appreciate the characteristics of this product.

Wish it was creamier but it's sticky to apply it. It melts in ok though.

This product is what brought me to this website. I was lucky enough to do a skincare trial with this product and it is now my holy grail. I spent a week at the Florida coast during the summer while testing this product and I can say with absolute validity that this stuff works as promised. I was in the blazing sun and my face stayed fully protected. Not only that, it was well-hydrated. I love the SPF factor in this, but I would buy this as a moisturizer even if it didn't contain the SPF. I love the radiant finish and the scent is heavenly. I will be a customer for life.

This and the tinted moisturizer are the only sunblock I ever use on my face. I have been using them for years.
