Most Helpful Positive Review My go to facial product
I love this for my daily facial moisturizer. It has great sun protection but is gentle to the skin. It also does NOT clog pores. If I could only have one product for my face, this would be it.
Most Helpful Critical Review Grease Face
I really wanted this product to be my new go-to face SPF, but it is WAY too greasy. My face feels slimy and slick. I put it on and it looks like I put oil on my face. My make does not set right and it looks like it just melts of my face throughout the day. I have used their face wash for years and like it, but I just can't back this product. I know it can be done because there are some department store brands that have 50 SPF and there is no grease factor.

Greasy & leaves a white cast
Naomi from Fresno ca
My skin is very acne prone and since I've been using this product my skin has not broken out as bad as it always has! Since I've been using this moisturizer I have been getting compliments on my skin! Will leave your skin white looking but just make sure you blend it in and you'll have no problem!
Lo P from Oklahoma City
This product makes my skin so shiny. I have tired it with and without make up and when I put it under makeup it's not good. Makes my make up looks greasy. It also leaves some what of a white cast although this isn't my main issues with the product.

Its very oily so avoid it if you already have oily skin.
PERFECT DOUBLE PROTECTION!!!!
CaliGirl00 from San Jose, CA
I have to use sunscreen because of my ability to turn into a lobster if I am in the sun too long. However, it is hard to remember that when your moisturizer doesn't have it. I bought this one since it is summer and I didn't like looking like a lobster. Even when I forgot to put on sunscreen, this moisturizer worked perfectly! I have combination normal to oily with some dry patches and this has survived sweaty work shifts and a trip to the beach!
Not for people of color
Dia from New York
So I'm latino with like a medium light skin tone, and this product leaves a white overlay on top of your skin. Like it's noticible that you're wearing a white cream. I can't imagen it looking weel on someone even two tones darker than me. But it does moisturize extremely well! I'm just not a fan of 'noticible' sunscreen. I wish they wouldve made this is sheer or daarker tones.

Gentle on skin and non greasy. Used it for years
Janie from Atlanta, GA
Okay, so first off this product leaves a white cast. I have to put just a little bit of this and blend it with a moisturizer so that it doesn't leave me looking like a ghost. Second of all, when I run it comes off and gets in my eyes. Also, after running/sweating it turns white and melts off my face, and then dries up, leaving white powder all over my face. It also makes my face oily/greasy. The only good thing is that it's spf 50. I would only use if you have a pale skintone and/or normal skin type (not oily/combo.)
Pretty good, I didn't experience any adverse reactions
Kelsey M from Preston, Idaho
It did have a slight spf smell but it wasn't enough to bother me when I put it on. I did notice a little bit of a white cast when applied, however it never lasted more than a few minutes for me. I bought this moisturizer on a whim because I needed something new and it was pretty good. I will admit it was a little more greasy than I would normally prefer but again, it didn't bother me. I tend to be pretty tolerable when it comes to moisturizers. I'm not sure if I happened to be drinking more water during the time I used up the bottle but I think it helped my skin tone even out a considerable amount. I'm currently trying a different Cetaphil moisturizer to see which of the two I like best, but I would consider buying this again regardless.
This is my third time buying this face lotion
ChrissyO from Philadelphia
I use it every morning after my shower to moisturize and provide sun protection for my face.
Jenna from Chester
Smells like sunscreen but I don't mind it at all, leaves me moisturized for hours with out leaving me feeling super greasy or oily
Not the product I thought it was
Marky from St. Louis
I cannot find the product that I usually buy. I thought this would work, but it does not. There is less product in a smaller bottle, and it is more expensive.
Everything is great, if you like hives
Becky from NYC
I don't have the most sensitive skin, but I still wanted to try this because of the great reviews... after 15 mins of wearing it... my face was so itchy so I looked in the mirror.... and had hives all over 🙃 idk how to return to get my money back, it's so little for so much...
One of the BEST moisturizers EVER!
L A from Atlanta, GA.
As a "Lupubug Lupus Warrior", I am photosensitive. So, I needed a great moisturizer coupled with a high SPF. Cetaphil is the absolute best.
Great moisturizer with SPF
Mayra from Salinas, CA
Searching for a moisturizer with great SPF coverage since I work outdoors. So far this has been a fantastic choose at a great price.
Good, but there is probably better out there.
Sunkie from Long Beach, California
I use this product after showering and before I apply on makeup. It is a great base/primer and definitely is moisturizing. It lasts a long time and 1 pump goes a long way. However, I feel as it there has to be a greater moisturizer out there that maybe isn't so greasy/oily. I have extremely dry skin, but if you have oily skin - I would not recommend this to you. Overall it is a
Good for dry, and I mean DRY, skin
thevdub from Texas
I first used this about 10 years ago when I was 19 and had combination/oily skin. It was extremely heavy and greasy. Now I am breastfeeding my infant who has managed to suck all the moisture from my body leaving me with DRY PEELING FACE SKIN. this is SUPER hydrating and thick for that very purpose. If you have normal to oily skin, I would advise no. But definitely yes if your skin is parched. Even in this summer heat, my skin absorbs it all up and is not greasy or shiny at all. That should give you an idea of how dry your skin needs to be for this.
Rae from Wichita, KS
I have been looking for a moisturizer with SPF 50 that I can afford. This seemed perfect. After I purchased and it started reading the packaging it said only protects against burn not damage related to skin cancer and premature aging. Isn't that what spf infused moisturizers are supposed to do? Otherwise use sunscreen. I don't burn. I use spf daily to protect my skin from cancer and aging. Broad spectrum SPF UVA and UVB is supposed to protect against those things so I'm really confused why this says on the package. As for the product itself it moisturizes well and absorbs quickly. As with most SPF's it leaves a slight greasy feeling but I always put makeup on top of it anyway.
MUACosmo from Wichita
I really like the formula and the way it feels on my face. The description says broad spectrum SPF 50. However after getting home with it and ready the box it says it only protects against burns and not sun damage that causes cancer and premature aging. I'm really confused. I thought that's what broad spectrum sunscreen did. Now I'm a little nervous. I don't burn. I bought it to protect my skin against cancer and aging.
SAVED my skin
Lex M from MI
I read some reviews before buying this since I was scared to switch moisturizers and it turns out the positive feedback was true! Usually when I start using new products on my face I instantly break out, but for once that was not the case. My skin is acne-prone and pretty rough/flaky in certain areas, but the more I use the Cetaphil, my face gets smoother and smoother with almost no new blemishes. Before, I had just been using Ponds after washing my face and i'd still have flakiness and acne, but now I just see clear skin. I can especially see the difference once I put on makeup and see how the texture of my skin is so much better, I really made the right choice!
maha from IL
so i saw the reviews and i thought of giving a try. but this sunscreen is super greasy and it will definitely clog pores and your face will look oily and sticky. would not recommend to anyone.
Great skin protection for Price
Cara from Nashville, TN
The first time I used the product, I used too much and my face looked oily for the day. The second time, I only used one pump, not 2 and that definitely helped my face not looking and feeling greasy. It does go on pretty white at first, but it absorbed and looks like a regular moisturizer I use every day. I gave it 4 stars because it does require some time to absorb properly. Make sure you set time aside before putting make up on, it's not something you can put on and then immediately start in on your make up with.
Great sunscreen moisturizer with an excellent price point
DIane from Jacksonville, FL
I am 49, live in the Sunshine state, and VERY determined to prevent further sun damage because I am fair skinned. I drive a lot for my job and even with tinted windows, I have sun on me often. I upped my game to an SPF 50 daily facial moisturizer about 8 years ago (used SPF 15 before) at the advice of my dermatologist. I tried many of the expensive brands. Meh. Greasy or bad smell. Or so expensive that I used them sparingly. Also, I tried a different brand in this price range and the smell was horrible. Once I tried Cetaphil, I was hooked. No smell, goes on light, perfect under my make up. And my face has never looked better. It has definitely protected my skin. I am so pleased with this product!!
Love with moderation
Angel M from Las Vegas NV
I use this daily as I live in Nevada. I wanted a good spf and I have super sensitive skin. This does the trick. Make sure you use a small amount. I started off using like a regular moisturizer and half way thru the day I looked a bit greasy. I use a small amount now, just a small dab in each section of my face. It gives me a nice glow, and keeps my face soft. I took one star just because it CAN be greasy if not used in moderation.
Yassssss, No Ghost Face!

Perfect, applies smooth and clear! Adds a little shine but as a black women, I appreciate the glow! No complaints so far. I will update after my vacation in the Caribbean.
