The fresh scent is a cult favorite. Place a dab behind the ears for a clean scent sans perfume for the day.

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s basic math: the sun dries out our faces, so moisturizers need to add moisture and subtract the damaging rays that harm skin. This face lotion moisturizes big time, but it’s still lightweight and oil-free, which is a must for any mug.

How it Works

The SPF 15 fights against UVB rays that cause burns, and the PA++ protection (two pluses out of three) fights against UVA rays that lead to premature aging. Plant extracts, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E provide deep moisture while infusing skin with antioxidants. That means you’re radiant no matter what season it is.

How to Use

Pump lotion into hand. 2-3 pumps will provide enough coverage. Apply to cleansed skin in the morning.

A keeper!

I've been using this moisturizer for nearly two years. I've got sensitive combination skin and have never had a problem with this. It's light and absorbs well. I use it once a day normally, twice a day when I'm extra dry. It lasts forever too!

Great moisiturizer
Purchased

I had initially purchased a small travel sampler of this product and a few other Benefit face products. I love this lotion. It feels very light on my face, and the main reason I purchased this was for the added SPF. I don't always want to wear foundation. It doesn't have a sunscreen-y scent like many other products with SPF tend to have. My only complaint is that it always manages to reach my bottom lip and if I lick my lips at all the taste is AWFUL.

Amazing moisturizer!

Love Benefit eye products. Thought I'd try their moisturizer, as I ran out of the just okay one I had been using for years. This moisturizer is amazing! So light, and a little goes a long way. I noticed an improvement in my skin after 2 days. A couple of dry patches hanging around from winter are gone and it's not too heavy for my combination/mostly oily, very sensitive skin. Will definitely continue using it and will be trying the cleanser next.

Great Moisturizer!

I have pretty oily skin, and this moisturizer still works well with it. It helps when my skin needs just a little bit of moisture and even when my skin is super dry in the winter. And it smells nice, too!

Nice, lightweight. Not worth $30 though.
Purchased

I like this moisturizer, but I won't be repurchasing it. It's not worth the price tag. It's a lightweight moisturizer, and it smells great. I don't feel like it does anything special though.

Ok, but not great
Purchased

I ordered this because I liked the reviews about the great scent, good mositurizer, etc. I have to say, this is not one of my favorite purchases. The lotion feels a little 'sticky' to me. I will finish this bottle and not reorder. The scent is ok, but really not worth buying the product for.

Favorite Benefit skincare product

This is my favorite Benefit skincare product. All of the other products in the line didn't really work for me, but this is just the right amount of moisture. A little hard to get out of the container.. But works wonders once you get the hang of it.

Very frangrant with odd ingredients
Purchased

I wish I would have read the ingredients before purchasing this moisturizer. It has a lot of alcohols and frangrance in it, as well as xanthan gum and xylitol (why???). If you like a strong scented product my guess is you probably aren't top skeptical of the long list of strage ingredients- you might enjoy it, smells very clean. It does seem to do a fairly decent job at moisturizing even with the alcohol. Although I hardly consider spf15 a propper sunscreen. Overall not impressed, I'll stick to benefit makeup from now on and avoid the skincare products all together.

The largest organ in our bodies cant be wrong. I use this daily and it's been a great addition to my daily routine! Lightweight and not greasy.

Great moisturizer!
Purchased

Best moisturizer for the face! I've tried many face creams and moisturizers -- this is by far the winner! Does not leave you face feeling greasy or shiny, it's very light on the skin and even has SPF -- an added bonus!
