Synthetic Sunscreen = Rash!!

1

Nooooooo no no!!!!! I wish I would have done my research beforehand to better understand physical vs. synthetic sunscreens. This is a synthetic sunscreen, which is a HUGE no for my dry, sensitive skin!!! Synthetic sunscreens tend to be known as a big no-no for dry skin, so I am curious as to why the makers of this used synthetic ingredients in an SPF moisturizer targeted for dry/very-dry skin. This gave me a rash all over my face and neck that only a high dose of hydrocortisone cream could get rid of. Be sure to do your research to learn more about what products are good for your particular skin type!

Thank you for brining this back!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this back!! This is the absolute best sunscreen/moisturizer for me! I tried several others in Paula's line and this one just worked best for me...dewy but not greasy. No excessive shine after an hour or 2 like some of the others. Excellent under my powder foundation. Just perfect. Please never discontinue again!

Didn't Work with My Skin

1

I tried this product for the first time for several days and noticed my skin was itching and had a slight rash in places as well as burning when first applied in the morning. I was hoping that this would work out for me but will have to return if possible and use another moisturizer that hasn't irritated my skin like this one. I don't know if it's the SPF part of it or some other ingredient that is causing this. Other products that I have gotten generally work out well for me.

Thank you for bringing this back!

I'm so thrilled this moisturiser has returned. I have dry skin and it's the only one that keeps my skin feeling soft all day, I love it. Great sun protection without any white cast so you don't mind applying liberally. So happy it's returned, I'd stocked up when I heard it was being discontinued but running very low!

I am so thankful you brought this wonderful product back!! I used it today for the first time since it was discontinued, and what a relief it was. For me, no other moisturizer does what this one does, I love it!! My skin is happy again!!

So glad they brought this back

So glad this is back. I hadn't used it but I loved the SPF-free version for nighttime use, and the recovery SPF​ did not work for me at all. This is a lightweight finish that isn't too greasy but still provides moisture to my skin. Hope it is here to stay because I will continue to buy it!

Thank you for bringing this fantastic sunscreen back. My husband and I have been using this product for years and were very disappointed to see it being discontinued. So thrilled to have it back along with the other Moisture Boost products.

Love, Love, Love this product!!

I love this product. It's the first moisturizer/sunscreen that does not melt off my face during the summer months so I really can't understand why you would discontue this product at all. Based on all the positive reviews on The Moisture Boost moisturizer with sunscreen vs. all the negative reviews on the new moisturizer with minerals, it's a no brainer. The Moisture Boost is soothing, helps with the fine lines around the eyes, has an spf and it stays where it should. Thanks to it, I'm comfortable enough to go out in public without any makeup. I also use the Moisture Boost without sunscreen at night and thanks to it, I wake up with more even toned skin and my face still feels hydrated. Please don't do away with these 2 products!!!!!

Why on earth would you discontinue this?

I'm aghast. This product has been my go-to facial sunscreen for YEARS! Any other moisturizer + sunscreen has been too heavy for me. It gets rave reviews. I cannot comprehend this decision.
