Comments about Desert Essence Daily Essential Defense Lotion SPF 15, 2 fl oz:

I was looking for a sunscreen that I can wear on my face and not feel or look like I have sunscreen on and this product did the trick. It has a nice light "fruity" smell to it and absorbs easily. Feels like I'm putting normal face moisturizer on. Doesn't feel sticky and it doesn't leave that white residue that I hate so much. I use it when going out on bike rides or just hanging outside or doing yardwork. Of course, if I'm at the beach or swimming I would wear something waterproof. But this product is great just for everyday/casual use. I haven't tried putting make-up over it so I can rate it on that. Goes on nice and smooth. I even use it on my 8 year old because he hates regular "kid" sunscreen because you have to really work at rubbing that stuff in and he flips out when I have to rub his face too much. This product is great because it takes no time at all to rub it in and he likes the light fruity scent. One more thing I liked about it is that it doesn't sting my eyes. I've used sunscreens that will "bleed" into my eyes after a while and will sting like crazy. I haven't had this happen yet with this product. So in my opinion...it's a keeper!

    I went from a bottle of the gentle nourishing version to this one and I was not impressed. This is a lot thicker, so I'm heading back to the other version. By the way it has 5 stars.

    Comments about Desert Essence Daily Essential Defense Lotion SPF 15, 2 fl oz:

    This is a great daily moisturizer! I have been looking for a product that would hydrate my skin adequately. I have very dry, breakout-prone skin. This is it. The smell is light and does not irritate my sensitive skin and the moisture is deep without making my skin greasy, oily, nor shiny. The added mineral sunblock (zinc oxide) is a great bonus, but isn't quite high enough for my liking. The only improvement that could be made would be to make the SPF higher.

      Comments about Desert Essence Daily Essential Defense Lotion SPF 15, 2 fl oz:

      This product is amazing! It's natural, and so I can feel good about using it without worrying about what crazy chemicals I'm putting on my body. It smells fantastic - very tropical. I really appreciate that the product comes in a tube instead of a pump. Pumps always seem to fail for me, but with a tube, you can squeeze out every last drop and really get your money's worth.

      This product goes on smooth and takes very little rubbing to soak in. It moisturizes well without being oily, and works great under makeup. There is no tackiness or residue to worry about.

      I highly recommend this product and this brand.

        I really like this line of skincare. I'm fair skinned, so I like something with some UV protection.

          I use this product before applying my foundation for SPF protection. It goes on smoothly, smells lovely, and lasts throughout the day. I like that the indgredients are all natural and that I'm not adding more chemicals to my body.
