I tried this for the first time years ago and was impressed at how calm my skin looked after I removed it. Even with just physical sunscreen ingredients for my more sensitive skin I would have irritation with other products. I don't like having to reapply as often so I actually put this under a stronger sunscreen.
this lotion will "roll" and not absorb. My shirt was covered in these little rolls of lotion. I called PCA and was told I should mix with a moisturizer...or "pat" it on. Well, I think they should take thier formula back to the scientist that developed it in the first place. I do not want to have to "mix" my own formula for it to be absorbed nor do I have time to "pat" on a sunscreen. worse product I have ever tried from PCA
My regular daily lotion has been discontinued and I was drawn to this for the SPF level and skin lightening claims. I haven't used it long enough to comment on the skin lightening aspect but am happy with the lotion. It is lightweight and I require 3 pumps of the bottle for my face and neck. Sometimes I add more to the neck area, or supplement with another cream. I live in a very cold, dry climate so I will see how it works as winter dryness sets in. I've had no irritation and am pleased with it so far.
Pros: smooth texture, lightweight, absorbs quickly, pleasant fragrance, gentle, non comedogenic, treatment
Ease of Use

Most sunscreen makes me break out, but not this. I love it and it almost acts like a primer in that it makes the skin look smooth. Love that it is a treatment and a sunscreen, and makeup goes on smoothly on top.
