I was extremely excited when I saw that Cetaphil had a face sunscreen like this, and I bought it immediately. I was a little bit disappointed because it does use some of the newer chemical sunscreens, in addition to the tried-and-true titanium dioxide. This where the trade off is: newer chemical sunscreens have debatable adverse health effects and/or degrade in the sun, however the old- fashioned physical sunblockers like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide both tend to have a "whitening" effect. I think that this is something of a compromise. If you rub it thoroughly right after you wash your face and allow it to settle in to your skin, it has minimal white color. I might keep shopping around but I may just end up back with this one.

I use Cetaphil moisturizers as part of my acne regimen, and I picked this up recently when my local retailer was out of my usual stuff. I suppose it would work well as "just" a sunblock, but after letting it soak in for 15-20 minutes, I tried to apply a light coat of foundation to my skin to cover the blotchiness of my acne-prone face. All it did was smear and look terrible over this moisturizer. I ended up re-washing my face and going without moisturizer until a new order of my regular stuff arrives in the mail. It is way too heavy and thick. I might try applying it on top of make-up if I was going to be out in the sun all day and/or at the beach without caring what I looked like, but this is definitely going in the closet for as-needed use. I don't recommend it for someone who dislikes heavy creams on their face.

A bit too oily looking

Pros

  • Durable
  • Need very little

Cons

  • Leaves a shine on face

Best Uses

    Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

    Use sparingly at first. You'll be surprised at how little you need. I don't wear make-up, so with no cover-up, the shine it leaves on my face is annoying. It's hard to find a product specifically for UV coverage for the face only. So, I would recommend it only because of that fact.

    • Summer dryness

    Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

    I only use this as a moisterizer sunscreen during spring/summer weekends. This product makes my skin look so good after a couple of days. I do not wear a lot of makeup with it, I find the lotion tones down my redness. I do not wear during the week because I am mostly indoors. Not a good moisturizer if you are also wearing foundation makeup, it would be too heavy. The sunscreen works great.

      Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

      I have tried many SPF products since a round of golf last about 4 hours. Most products caused more sweating, smelled bad or just didn't last long enough. This product is golden.

      • Winter Dryness

      Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

      Ever since I started dealing with a mild form of eczema I started using almost everything from cetaphil. I like this 50spf moisturizer it is easy to apply and moisturizes my face nicely. As for the white film all I can say is that I started using sunscreen everyday in my early 20's most of them had tititanium dioxide and zinc oxide in them that would cause a white film ( that nobody noticed btw) and I am in my mid 40's now with no sun damage or wrinkles created by the sun. In fact I wish cetaphil would focus on titanium dioxide and zinc oxide only in their sunscreen as these ingredient are more natural. I will take a white film any day (which can be covered with make- up) over any chemical filled sunscreen or prune alligator skin. One con though, why oh why is this little tub so expensive we are dealing with a recession here.

      Best Uses

      • Too white on fair skin

      Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

      This moisturizer feels good on skin, but when you apply it, it is very difficult to rub in. Your skin has a white tint like sunscreen that has not been rubbed in on a child at the beach. I have extremely fair skin and my face looks like I have white makeup on. Too bad.

      I was allergic to something, probably a product a substitute hairdresser used. I developed a horrible rash, nothing would stop the itching. The dermatologist recommended cetaphil as a wonderful product. They do make great products but they are expensive.

        Comments about Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for All Skin Types, SPF 50, 1.7 oz:

        I put this on right after my shower when my skin is driest, and it would not sink in. I checked back after almost two hours and my skin was still shiny and my pores looked huge. I have oily skin but it still should have sunk into my just-washed face. I ended up washing it off and never using it again. It sucked. For a good moisturizer with SPF 50, I recommend Neutrogena Healthy Defense moisturizer. I've been using it for two years now and it's been wonderful.

        I was diagnosed with an allergy to something I used. I was scratching my skin off. The dr. prescribed this and I found it did not make me itch. The trouble again is the expense.
