Cons: sticky, doesn't absorb, contains BAD ingredients

I was pretty surprised to read that this product has a bad rating in the cosmetics database. Environmental Working Group's Cosmetic Safety Database, it came back with a health hazard rating of 7 out of 10 for other ingredients linked to cancer, allergies, neuro-toxicity and a bunch of other fun health issues.

I had bought it once -- my face is very dry and sensitive to moisturizers. This seemed to work ok - but I didn't like the way it felt on my skin. It was tacky. Ick. And then it made me break out. I managed to pawn it off on a friend but wouldn't recommend it.

Pros: feels great, light weight, the scented one is lovely

Cons: has some ingredients of concern

This product was my moisturizer of choice when I first started working in the health food store. When I became more versed in ingredients, I soon stopped using it because of the ingredients Dimethicone and Phenoxythanol.
Other than that, it's a great product. If the makers would just delete those two ingredients.

Pros: Non-comedogenic, plus SPF 15

This lotion is the best. I've been using it for years. It's a fantastic, light, non-greasy facial moisturizer that also doubles as daily sunscreen for the face. It has a really light scent (hardly at all). One bottle lasts forever. I love it.
