Moisturizers with SPF are an essential for me because this one product can keep my face moisturized and protected. This 100% Pure one is awesome! My skin has not had any adverse reactions to it and it does not make my face oily throughout the day.

Non-Nano Zinc Oxide

First off, this uses non-nano Zinc Oxide, which is what you should be looking for in your SPF. A lot of cheaper natural sunscreens use chemical sunscreens like Octinoxate, Homosalate, and Avobenzone which are less risky than Oxybenzone, but are still absorbed into the skin and can be hormone disrupters. Since Zinc Oxide acts as a physical barrier, it's one of the safest choices. EWG is a great resource for learning more about sunscreen ingredients.

Application

If I'm in a rush, my morning routine will just be cleansing with a konjac sponge and then slapping this on.

If I have the time, I prefer using this with another moisturizer underneath because it helps the sunscreen spread and adds some moisture, but it works fine on its own too. I have normal skin, so if you have dry skin, you'll probably need the additional step. Oily skin folks should check out the green tea version for oily skin.

The product comes out thick, but smoothes out onto the skin nicely. I mean, it won't be as smooth as a sunscreen-less moisturizer, but that's kinda the price you have to pay sometimes! It doesn't make my face feel sticky or like I put a heavy/thick product on it, which is all I ask. There is some whitecast, due to the nature of Zinc Oxide, but it's bearable. I don't mind it because it helps me know that my skin is covered. Also, if you're wearing makeup over it, it won't be an issue.

I'm indifferent to the scent. It smells like sunscreen (like minerals I guess?) which isn't the worst thing, but I don't love it. Andalou Naturals has moisturizers that smell like oranges and roses, so this smells super boring by comparison, but the ingredients in 100% Pure's products are much better, since Andalou uses chemical sunscreens.



Overall: A great basic necessity with healthy ingredients that doesn't feel icky on my face.
