I have tried over 100 sunscreens in an attempt to find one that I can slap on in the morning and forget about 'til I wash it off. My sensitive, acne- and clog-prone skin would not allow me to do this; it was either a sunscreen would break me out, clog me up, or cause reactions that sometimes needed medical intervention. Not so with this! It goes on light as a feather, sinks in quickly, and hasn't caused any breakouts or reactions. The finish is a lovely satin matte, so my skin looks totally natural, not shiny and not dry. If you are expecting ANY product to hold back oil all day, you are setting yourself up for disappointment, but this sunscreen did keep me shine-free for about 5 hours with just a dusting of powder over it. Because it is not water-resistant, I would not recommend this for swimming/beach sunscreen, but for everyday wear, it is a winner! As with any chemical sunscreen, it is going to have a certain smell, but it fades immediately on me (if yours is lingering, contact the company, as it is probably a bad bottle). Works great under makeup (though be careful to check any SPF ingredients in your makeup; if it contains octinoxate, skip it while using this sunscreen, as it will deactivate the avobenzone) too. The price is a steal for a four ounce bottle! So glad to have found this!

I'm rather disappointed given, after using the same brand of oil control wash, I assumed this would also provide oil control WHILE ALSO protecting me from the sun's rays. So far the sunscreen aspect seems fine - though it's just a bunch of chemical blockers instead of physical ones like zinc or titaniam oxide. Which you could pay half as much for nearly twice the amount of ounces you get in this. I specifically got it for the oil control/acne prone skin. I've battled acne prone, sensitive, photosensitive, oily skin for over 20 years now. I'm beyond sick and tired of the lip service and promises companies make, using the same ingredients other products use and slap a heavier price tag on it because it's meant for acne prone people like me. Which, if it worked, would be fine, but it doesn't. Everything I use is oil free, oil control, etc. I decided to incorporate this in some vain hope it would tackle my oiliness. Nope. Zit (I mean zip). Within an hour of application I'm just as oily as if I'd not put anything on at all or put on a regular sunscreen. If you want an overpriced sunscreen made with chemical blockers be my guest. I could have seen passed it had it done something about the oil. It didn't. Don't market it as an oil control when it doesn't. The oil control wash they make seems to work great. The follow up lotion (which is more expensive) leaves much to be desired.

    It's a non-greasy, light moisturizer with a good SPF that actually does keep my skin matte for longer than most other moisturizers. I will probably repurchase.

      good for use on the days you need SPF-30. No greasy and absorbs quickly. A little pricey in the regular stores but the drug store price is a good one

          I am really surprised by this wonderful product. I was hesitant to use it, because I don't like to use cheap stuff on my sensitive, rosacea prone skin...but I've now stopped using my dept. store moisturizer in favor of this. I'm not that oily, but in the summer I don't like the shiney look. This stuff doesn't irritate my skin, feels like nothing on, goes on smooth & it does help my make-up stay fresh. The added spf is great. I also use this on my neck & chest before I go out. Gives those high priced spf moisturizers from the dept. stores severe competition. I may try other Cetaphil products.

              I have oily skin so I thought this product would reduce the shine on my face but it did NOT do that what so ever. It is very much like sunscreen and it smells like it too. I even put loose powder after I apply this but 3 hours later my face looks greasy again. Such a waste of money!

                I use this as my daily moisturizer + SPF. So far, mild complaints. Not a huge fan of the scent (smells too SPFy for me), but otherwise it's fine. Seems to soak in easily and is fine under makeup. Now that it's getting hot again we'll get a good test - I get greasy and slick when it gets humid and hot. Today was a pretty hot/humid day and it seemed to keep things in check. If it keep on keeping me relatively matte, I will probably keep buying it. Reasonable price, too!

                  Thank you, Cetaphil, for being the first to make a broad spectrum spf matte moisturizer for oily skin! I've tried so many different things and they either feel like a heavy mask and clog pores or don't offer enough sun protection. I tend to get milia, which seems to be exacerbated by spfs, but this doesn't have that effect. As for total mattification, it's too early in the year yet to tell if this can fend off the humid subtropical fun of the city I live in, so we shall see! Meanwhile, bravo Cetaphil.
