I was very happy with another brand that was removed from the market. I researched and tried other products and Alpha Hydrox Sheer Silk Moisturizer was the closest replacement for my old favorite. I have used their other products for several years. I apply this product every time I wash my face, and sometimes once during my day at work (drying environment).
This moisturizer goes on easily and is not heavy. Although, a little thicker consistency would be fine with me. I have sensitive skin but do not experience redness after application.

I highly recommend this product. Once it is on, you do not feel sticky or greasy. I buy two (2) at a time.

In addition, when the pump system does not deliver, or appears empty - unscrew the top and you will find another weeks worth of the product hiding under the lid. The pump system is convenient, but does not appear to deliver all of the moisturizer in the container.

The packaging has changed from the excellent pump to a (no doubt cheaper) tube. "New Convenient Tube," the box proclaims. Excuse me, but I found the pump to be more convenient! I like the product OK for days when I'm not really going to be outside for long. It is light, not greasy, and fine on my very sensitive skin. Unfortunately, SPF 15 is not enough to keep my face from burning. My teenage sons will use this as moisturizer and I'm happy to get even this much sunscreen on their precious faces!

                Comments about Alpha Hydrox Sheer Silk Moisturizer SPF 15 Sunscreen, 1 oz:

                I think several reviewers missed the point of this product. Read the instructions! It's a sunscreen designed to be used AFTER moisturizing with an AHA product (like the 12% Souffle). It is not a stand-alone moisturizer but instead, a daily sunscreen. That said, it's my favorite facial sunscreen because it is light, silky, easy to apply, is broad spectrum in its protection, has an attractive package, and is reasonably priced. I especially appreciate that it is unscented. There is not even a hint of perfume, which is important for sensitive skin.

                        They work like they say they will and they are reasonably priced. I can't do better than that
