I bought this product with my first batch of Paula's choice products. I have never worn an spf moisturizer in winter, never actually cared that much about sun damage. Nonetheless since my breakouts were worst than ever and I wanted to take action I ordered a bha liquid exfoliator and a skin treatment for spots and fine lines from Paula's choice, and understood that I would also absolutely need to protect my skin while using these products. So I started searching for a daytime moisturizer which would leave my combination skin hydrated, mat and protect it and I decided to go for a man product (I am a woman:)) for oily skin, guessing it would be lightweight and mat. I think that I got it wrong. My skin is combination with some dry patches and it is winter: I could totally live with a heavier moisturizer, this is not enough. It stings a bit at the beginning but it is a really really light stinging. I actually don't like the runny texture so much, but this is a matter of opinion. Indeed it is absorbed in a breeze and there is no white cast. The biggest problem for me is that, combined with the exfoliant, it makes my skin shine as it never ever has shone before!! It's really incredibly shiny!! I haven't read about this problem in any review, but actually this is a problem for me. It's not a greasy shine, actually, I don't even know how to explain it, my skin is balanced if not verging on the dry side, after all the exfoliation cleaning etc, it feels soft and smooth, but its like it's coated in a shiny product. Maybe this would be a problem with all spfs and I have to learn to survive it... Anyway I will reach for a richer moisturizer, since this one does not even leave me mat! I hope my review is useful, I guess that what is a problem or a deficiency for me could be viewed in a positive way by others.
