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!

    It goes on smoothly and is not greasy. It leaves your skin with a luminous glow. I'm fifty and am often mistaken for thirty and I've been using the product for 17 years now.

          I hated sunblock products because all of them gave me a feeling of wearing a plastic bag. Especially the facial products, they were greasy and oily. But this one doesn't. I like Alpha Hydrox more and more~

              Finally found a sunscreen for my face that doesn't break me out. I use this over the Alpha Hydrox glycolic souffle. I only wish it were a larger size...other than that I have no complaints.

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

                  This is the only moisturizer that works on my temperamental break out prone skin! I am on my 4th repurchase. A little goes a very long way, I only need about half a pump for my whole face. I use this every morning after I wash my face & before I put on make-up. It out preforms any other moisturizer I've ever tried. It helps keeps my skin clear & my make up goes on flawlessly over it. All other moisturizers make my skin greasy & break me out. Yes, the pump system is a little different but it is worth the occasional hassle in my opinion. If you can't get product to come out of the pump at first & it is difficult to get the bottom of the tube off in order to press the bottom up I've found if I simply turn the whole thing upside down & shake it the lotion will dispense as normal. All in all i will purchase this lotion over and over!

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

                    I have been using the line for several months now after having issues with other AH acid products, and have had none of the flare-ups or irritation that I got with the other brands. My skin is clearer and brighter, and at 52, that is a bonus from any moisturizer. That being said, this is the second bottle of the moisturizer that I have purchased, and while I like the concept of the stem-free delivery system, the design itself needs a little tweaking. It was nearly impossible to remove the base to push up the center, until I grabbed an adjustable wrench and pried the thing off. Really? But, I still love the product and will purchase it again, with the wrench in hand upon delivery.

                      I love the alpha hydrox products so I thought I'd try this one with sunscreen. Unfortunately within an hour of putting it on my face is extremely oily. It does feel a little greasy going on as well. Might work great for those with dry or normal skin but if your skin leans towards oily I'd try something else.

                          The bottle has a unique pump. Follow the instructions. There's no tube inside; it works using air pressure, but you have to set it up correctly. It gets every drop of product out! There's only a slight fragrance, which is great and it's easy to apply a nice thin layer. The only thing I don't like is that I just looked at the ingredients and it has corn oil as the 2nd ingredient. I really like the Alpha Hydrox Souffle which is used prior to this product.
