About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about SKIN RECOVERY Lotion SPF 30 - 2 oz:
To me... this stuff is incredible. My skin type is dry, sensitive, with minor redness issues. If you are like me then I completely recommend this product. Some say it is greasy and I absolutely agree. It is. Do not buy if you are oily skinned or not decently dry. For me the best part is that my dry skin is glistening after use. If you are trying to decide between this sunscreen and the calm sunscreen for dry skin, get this one. I have used full size of both and this one is much better and does what I think the Calm sunscreen should do.. Moisturize and soothe. The Calm line for dry skin didn't moisturize me enough.I think this sunscreen has really helped my "moisture barrier" as my skin has improved in plumpness dramatically, redness has diminished, and I believe it is from getting the sun protection, moisture, and soothing properties.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

HOLY GRAIL SUNSCREEN
So in the mornings after I wash my face, I go through the first steps of my skincare (toner, emulsion etc) and then I put on a thick moisturiser (because I like the dewy foundation look) and then I apply the sunscreen by dotting it all over my face then tapping it in (NOT RUBBING - NOT GOOD FOR SKIN). I make sure to wait a couple minutes in between so everything seeps in well but this sunscreen seeps in great and makes my skin look really dewy and healthy!I have an allergy to alot of sunscreens but this is the only sunscreen that I feel does the best job and looks great under make up.I used to use the Kosmea mineral sunscreen but that ones just too expensive, not much great ingredients and makes me get break outs. This sunscreen has great ingredients (antioxidants are a must with sunscreen) and I love the way it looks under make up and there is no white cast which is amazing seeing that it is a mineral sunscreenHighly recommend to anyone with sensitive skinbut remember to TAP it into your skin for best effect!
Sits on top of skin, poor performance under make-up
By Lisa the Pale
from San Antonio, TX
I really wanted this to work out because it is mineral-based and received excellent reviews for sensitive, dry skin. I used it for three consecutive weeks, but sadly it is not for me. My skin would not absorb it, so it's moisturizing components just sat on top of my skin creating a light oil layer over dry skin underneath. Even with my usual skin care routing, my skin got drier and drier and my foundation looked terrible (I have been using the same kind for three years). I started experiencing bumps and a several pimples on my cheeks and forehead (something I haven't had since high school). I switched to the PC SKIN BALANCING Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense sunscreen and my skin returned to normal and my make up stays put. Now, I am finishing the tube my using it on my neck and ears; no problem with the use there.
Great for sensitive skin & eyes but it's definitely greasy

About Me Beauty Expert
I switched over from chemical sunscreens to this because my sensitive skin felt a burning sensation whenever I'd use chemical sunscreens and they drove my eyes crazy. This, however, has NEVER given me any sort of irritation in the slightest! Even if I get it into my eyes there is no irritation whatsoever. I highly recommend this to those who have sensitive skin, especially sensitive and wet eyes that tend to tear up whenever you get skincare in them. Since switching to mineral sunscreens my acne has been better as well so I'm assuming that chemical sunscreens can cause a level of inflammation that can promote acne. Most shocking is that since switching over to this from the other PC sunscreen my skin looks better as though it is protecting my skin more than the chemical one even though I'm applying the same amount every day! My acne marks are healing more quickly. There is no noticeable white cast and the smell, at least to me, isn't as bad as other reviewers are letting it on to be. It has a faint cucumber lotion scent. I was contemplating whether to drop a star because this product is greasy. Like with a lot of mineral sunscreens it forms a barrier over your skin that does not fully absorb unless you have very...very dry skin. I have normal to dry skin. To combat this I switched to using powder foundations to blot up the excess oil and that has been working well :). Because of that I'll just leave it at five stars haha.
The best for me

About Me Minimalist
After having a small skin cancer removed from my face, I got a mineral sunblock from the Dr. Found that it was really pink (chalky pink...not good), runny and very expensive - didn't work well for me, as I seemed to get more on my clothes than on my face! Did my research and found the Skin Recover SPF 30 Moisturizer. Awesome! The mineral sun protection is what I was looking for as it a good SPF level and protects my skin from the sun, doesn't hurt my eyes like some non-mineral sunscreens, rubs in well and doesn't leave a white cast (unless I'm in a hurry and don't check the mirror before I race out the door) and is a great moisturizer, especially in the dry climate we have here. Great product!

Absolutely love this moisturizer/spf. It is a bit greasy, and takes a while to sink in, but it works fantastic!!

My go to daily skin care product!
from fort collins, co
I have used this product for several years and love it. I now use it on my kiddos' faces b/c of the SPF 30. Love the whole series... the facial wash rocks
Irritated my skin
from Tampa, FL
It took me months to figure out what was making my skin itch when I got sweaty. Finally realized through process of elimination that it was this. I'm honestly not sure what in this irritates me face. I use the night time cream from this specific line and it's great so I thought it was the mineral block. But I started using another moisturizer with the same minerals and never get irritated. I use Paula's Choice everything else (cleanser, etc etc) and it's all very soothing. So weird!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great - particularly under makeup
By Jay bunny
Great moisturiser with spf - unlike others of its type it doesn't dry my skin out and is great under makeup. In fact it acts like a primer keeping my foundation smooth and in place for most of my working day. Very comfortable, no tingling or stinging my eyes and on my fair- medium skin doesn't leave a noticeable white cast under make up. Very happy.
Another winning product
from Cape Cod
Just got this the other day and it doesn't disappoint. I love the Skin Recovery line, it's been a lifesaver. People don't believe my age when I tell them. I don't notice a smell with this product as some have noted. It goes on smoothly and feels great.
