Most Helpful Positive Review Great for Oily skin! Would repurchase!
Tried this on a whim. Loved it! The cream gel formula is Ideal for oily skin but would recommend for any skin type. Light weight cream gel moistureizer with SPF is a dream come true for oily skin. The only thing I didn't like was the scent. It's not awful but it's not the greatest either. Least it's not a super strong scent. Would repurchase.
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent moisturizer but weirdly sticky??
I decided to try this because it was pretty cheap and I wanted to try something new (I also fell for its nice packaging). It has a unique fruity smell, which I like but my mom hates the smell. So I guess it depends on what type of smell you like. I wanted something with sunscreen in it because I don't want my face to be wrinkly when I'm 35. I like that this has sunscreen in it, although it's only SPF 15, which isn't THAT great, but it'll do. I knew it would likely be a slightly greasy since I have NEVER found a moisturizer with sunscreen in it that is not greasy. This moisturizer is a bit extra greasy though. Overall, it's a decent moisturizer. My main complaint about it is that it's STICKY!! I have never used a moisturizer that was this sticky! I was a bit surprised and confused. It's not bad enough to the point where I would need to return it but it does bother me a bit. I always have to wash my hand after applying it. I shouldn't have to wash my hands after moisturizing! It is super cheap though, so I guess you can't expect more for such a low price.

I was really excited for this because I like the price tag and I've had a good experience with the brand in the past, but this let me down. The first thing I noticed was the smell, which comes from the guava aspect. I'm sure some people don't mind it but it's a very sweet smell and I'm always wary of fragrance, natural or not, as it can irritate the skin. The consistency is quite creamy in a weird way, it's pretty heavy. I also noticed that it felt a bit granular? as if there were tiny bits of something in it. After only a couple uses it began to break me out, which is the worst part. So I was definitely not pleased with this product.
Burned my eyes
Nicole from Texas
This moisturizer is light weight, and I didn't notice a strong scent. It works as a sunscreen, but as I started to sweat, it burned my eyes! Overall it does what it's supposed to and it's cheap... but it's not sweat proof.
I don't mind using up the bottle.
TJ from Nevada
I use this every morning after washing my face. I like that I don't have to use my heavy feeling sun screen moisturizer after and I don't have to balance whether or not to use this with my IT Cosmetics tinted moisturizer (it has a strong SPF and I have low vitamin D and having melanin-rich skin makes that trickier so I have to be balanced with sun protection). It has enough SPF for me to feel comfortable without my SPF makeup but also fine if I don't wear that makeup and just the moisturizer. Although it isn't chalky, it isn't as moisturizing as I hoped once it sinks in, so I recommend adding a thin layer of a trusted oil or gel moisturizer underneath if you live somewhere dry.
Don't leave the house without it
Maddie from Oregon
It sits well under my makeup after I let it really dry and I've never had a sunburn wearing it. I do a lot of outdoor activities so this is the perfect thing for me. Smells great, doesn't leave me feeling greasy
hal from Ulta
I use this moisturizer on my skin every single day and it works. It can also be a base for makeup. I love it. However, if you get even the tiniest bit in your eye it burns horribly. So try not to get it to close to your eyes.
Don't do it
Nicepants from Seattle
I love this line, but this is the WORST moisturizer. It sits on my skin heavy, it takes about three hours to not notice the weight/feel the tacky. I hate the scent, it reminds me of a cheap plastic kids toy. I've never returned makeup & I have every intention of returning this, just because I don't want this is my house. I'm so upset I swear by their face washes, they're my favorite!
I like it, but I don't love it
Tally from California
I enjoy using this moisturizer w/ SPF 15. It's a great moisturizer to use right in the morning before I go outside for my workout. However, this definitely feels like a sunscreen. And it smells like one too. If I sweat a lot while wearing this product it will collect in the sweat and occasionally burn my eyes. It's nothing terrible, but it is not a great feeling. I'll use the entire bottle, but will I repurchase this? Not likely.
I really like it
Catie T from Boston, MA
I have pretty oily skin and use some pretty strong cleaners on my face. This moisturizes but doesn't leave me any extra grease. This works good as a lighter moisturizer in the morning and that's how I use it, I love that it has SPF in it. I also like that there's no strong smell.
Leaves my face...

super soft, hydrated and smooth looking all day
YES YES YES!!!!
Bella from Alabama
This is the best!! It goes on smoothly and smells AMAZING!! I am in love. Plus it has SPF in it. I'm on my second bottle, they last a while.
Heaven from Pottsville, PA
I really love this!!! I was nervous at first because it is a white product that feels like a trading sunscreen but it didn't leave any streaks or cast on the sun!!! Feels so nice on and doesn't leave any greasy residue or anything. Will continue to purchase!!!
Disregard Bad Reviews
Heaven in a Tube from Virginia
This stuff SAVED my dry sensitive skin!!!! The trick to making it work under foundation is to let it dry or get tacky and then prime your skin, otherwise, everything is just going to slide off from everything else being slick! It's AMAZING! I always have such dewy glowy skin with this!

smells super good and didn't break out my acne prone skin
Gigi from Desert Hot Springs
Not moisturizing. Gritty. Absolutely not.
Smells so good
Lola08 from Ohio
You can really smell the guava in this moisturizer but it smells so natural. I love it! It's a really unique sent but just right.
My skin breaks out easily and this moisturizer does a great job of keeping my skin hydrated (under makeup or makeup free) but it's light enough that I don't breakout. I feel very fresh and clean after I put it on, like my face can still breath. My only suggestion would be to add a flip cap for easier dispensing. I will definitely purchase again.
Good for a beach day, not for makeup.
Rae from Philadelphia, PA
This product is definitely priced low for a reason. I think they know it isnt that good. If you are looking for a guava scented facial sunscreen, then congratulations you found it. But if you needed a moisturizer to apply before doing your makeup then please keep looking. It feels okay, but I can not get over the overwhelming sunscreen smell. Which I typically like the smell of sunscreen but only if I'm doing a beach or pool day, not for everyday wear. It also left my skin looking very shiny/bright so if you already have oily skin I wouldn't recommend it. But it's a decent size with a little going a long way so you at least get more than what you pay for technically. Skin feels okay for the most part, no reactions or anything like that. I just definitely wouldn't choose this as an every day moisturizer, but it is pretty perfect if you plan on doing a no-makeup or minimal makeup beach day for THAT it probably will smell nice / make you feel nice.

I love that this moisturizer isn't sticky. Most spf moisturizers are really and uncomfortable.
Smelled nice though...
Barb from Seattle, Washington
I bought this moisturizer because I needed spf for my skin I decided to try it out at night to see if it kept my face moisturized. I woke up my face was itchy and red. I did not think my skin was sensitive and still don't but after washing my face several times my face remains itchy and red. When I squirted it into my hands I noticed it was really thick and I just thought it was all the sunscreen on the active ingredient list. But I really don't recommend this product to anyone.
Rachel from Arlington, TX
I use this as part of my daily skin care routine
Abbi from IN
Its goes on very easily! And I saw some reviews saying it was sticky but was not for me. It does have a gritty texture but it goes away when applied to your skin. Very good moisturizer.
Liz R from Farmington, CT
I love this product because it is very convenient to have a moisturizer with SPF so you don't even have to remember both in the morning. I like the smell, it's kind of like bubblegum. Also I find the texture great because it is thick (I have dry skin) but not greasy (also acne prone) - so great for combo skin. The only downside is because of the thickness and SPF it does take some time to get it totally blended into your skin.
Now a staple for my routine
Lorino from Lawton, OK
I was having excessive breakouts on my skin due to a combination of things: stress, changes in schedule, changes in diet due to those two, as well as the sunblock I was using (bc I moved from a dry desert climate to a more humid climate). So, I overhauled my skin care. I began using 10.0.6 cleanser, at first in combination with a Burt's Bees cream cleanser in the morning and 10.0.6 cleanser in the evening, then switching to only this cleanser for morning and night. When my skin is beginning to show trouble signs of another breakout, I also use a 10.0.6 toner with salicylic acid in the evening, but I do not use it when I feel my skin doesn't need it. When my old sunblock ran out, I switched to a Picture Perfect Day daily moisturizer with SPF, which leaves my skin feeling lightly moisturized, not greasy or shiny, not dry. Eventually my nighttime moisturizer ran out, so I replaced it with PM perfector; this does moisturize lightly, but occasionally my skin will be left feeling a little dry, however it has noticeably helped even my complexion from the acne spots. Overall I believe this combination of products, along with getting a better handle on stress management and diet, has helped my skin clear up over the past 6 months.
Regarding this moisturizer specifically, my biggest wish is that it would be available in SPF30. I do have a separate sunblock for my face I have to use instead on days where I spend time outdoors recreationally or for work. Days where I am at the gym after work and get excessively sweaty are the only times I've noticed that my skin starts to feel greasy after using this product.
Perfect with sunscreen!
Veronica from NJ
I always put sunscreen over day cream and this one is great to put with sunscreen! The smell isn't too chemically and it's great for sun coverage!!!
Sarah from Florida
At first I wasn't sure about it. The texture isn't exactly smooth, and it is very thick. There is a scent, but it's not enough to bother me. I think it makes my face look dewy, but it can become greasy if I apply too much. I really like that it has some sun protection as well. After figuring out how much to apply and getting used to the texture, it grew on me. I will most likely purchase again.
Caitlin from CT, USA
So after using this product, I had the worst reaction ever! My skin got really red and I had burning sensations for about a week after. I have combination skin (mostly oily) and am very acne-prone. This moisturizer made my acne flare-up worse than usual and made my skin extremely dry and flakey. It may just be me, but if you are going to use this product I recommend testing it on a small portion of skin first to make sure that you don't have a serious reaction like I did.
