Okay if you use a little
I've used this product for about 2 years, along with others from alpha-h. I've always put some hydrator gel on before applying quite a small amount of this because it's not hydrating enough on its own. At the same time though I find it feels quite oily so I've never put a lot of it on - I have oily skin myself. It also contains beeswax, which is a shame as I'm vegan so I need to find another sunscreen.
Awesomea little goes a long way, feels hydrating on my skin and prevents me getting burned becuase i have sensitive skin, highly recommend
Part of my everyday routineI have very acne prone skin, mainly caused by hormones and stress. As I was changing to a different contraceptive I was really scared about my skin flaring up. As the acne cream I was using made my skin sensitive to the sun, I needed a moisturiser with a high SPF in it and this was the best I could find! Smooth on the skin, does leave the skin slightly tacky but what do you expect from an spf
GreatThis provides excellent SPF protection, which is very important in Australia and New Zealand due to our climate. A little goes a long way and it doesn't have the greasiness I have found in other products. I would recommend this - just wish it was more than 50 mls
Great for acne prone skinI have been using this for about a week now and have very acne prone skin and have not had a reaction to it like other face sunscreens.
It is a bit shiny after you put it on, but I use it as a primer under my foundation and finish off with a mineral powder and my skin stays matte for the day.
Best moisturiserThis product is amazing!! It’s helped me with my acne so much as my acne is caused from lack of moisture. When I’m not feeling make up I put this on and it leaves me with a beautiful glow all day. Can not recommend a product more
NiceThis is a nice product. I use it when I'm feeling a bit lazy and am not doing my makeup for the day so I can just pop it on and know I've got a little sun protection on if I go outside briefly
Fantastic!Love this moisturiser with spf I use it as a sunscreen on top of another moisturiser and it still feels light on my skin not greasy or heavy. Also love the way my skin looks after applying as someone that doesn't often wear make-up it's great this cream doesn't make my skin look oily or shiny.
Won’t go without againI’ve been looking for something like this for agers!!
And I’m glad I purchased it!
It’s light on your skin, doesn’t leave a white colour like other SPF’s and sinks into your skin really fast.
The only reason why I gave this one less star was because of the size. I actually wish they made it in a bigger bottle. But considering it’s on sale, I might have to stock up :)
I like itNice texture, not too thick! Doesn't feel greasy either
Love that it has sun protectionI love this moisturiser! Great for everyday use. It makes my face feel a little greasy when I put it on, but once it soaks into the skin it is absolutely amazing!
great for the morning moisturei use this mostly in summer as it has SPF protection.. its lightweight and doesn't cause breakouts
Fantastic, good for oily skin and great in the sunI have been using this product daily as part of my daily skin care routine. The moisturiser is non-greasy after application and works really well in the sun. It is long-wearing and does not give me any breakouts.
Best sun protectionI absolutely love love love this suncream, I can say it's finally I found good cream with spf under my makeup. Alpha h best best company and I'm fans of them every thing they have it's wonderful.
This cream gave me good protection also made my skin smooth glowy omg real glow not oily at all my skin combinations so I have oily T zone area and this cream for me is the best . Highly recommended.
Perfect for everyday useI use this daily for sun protection, I find that it keeps my skin from getting burnt and doesn't feel too heavy on the skin, as sunscreen does.
Love it!Absolutely love this moisturiser . It feels lovely and light and the spf is a bonus. I'm a repeat buyer!

Best Sunscreen on the marketI've tried a lot of Sunscreens available and this is the best I've found for under make-up. It sinks in fast, the sunscreen smell dissipates fast and it doesn't mess with anything you put on top. I personally use this on top of a thicker moisturiser because I have dry skin and find that it's not quite enough to keep my skin hydrated but as a sunscreen it's perfect.
My new favourite moisturiserI have been through a few bottles of this and use it as my daily moisturiser. The spf is a bonus too! I have combination oily skin and it works a treat along with the other alpha h products I use. I have always had clear skin but this product in conjunction with other alpha h products have also given me a healthy glow.
In love with this!I’m so glad I came across this product. I’ve finally found an spf moisturiser that’s non-greasy and works with combination skin. Definitely recommend!
GoodI swear by this product and use it everyday before applying my make-up. It is so light and goes a long way. The best thing is knowing you’re wearing SPF without it feeling thick and oily.
GreatI have oily skin and it doesn't make my skin greasy throughout the day. Very lightweight.
Perfect under rmakeupPerfect mousturising spf, no white cast or oily feel and wears well under makeup.
Skin saviourMy one concern when buying products with spf is that it will feel to heavy on my skin. This product makes me forget that I'm actually protecting my skin. It gets oily after awhile but ive always had that problem no matter what product I use. Definitely recommend.
GreatFor an SPF 30 this is great. Easy to apply, no white cast and doesn't break me out.
Fave MoisturiserThis moisturiser is my absolute fave! I have tried many over the years and found it hard to please my combination skin, I love that it has SPF 30+ in it also, yet it doesn't feel like you are wearing a sunscreen!my go to daily moisturiser every time!
AmazingHappily use everyday - doesn't feel like it has SPF in it at all - just a great moisturiser
GoodI swear by this product and use it everyday before applying my make-up. It is so light and goes a long way. The best thing is knowing you’re wearing SPF without it feeling thick and oily.
Alpha-H Daily Essential Moisturiserhydrating with a very mild 'sunscreeny' scent. Would def purchase again.
greati have used this product a few times its really nice and not too heavy!
Love it!I've always been reluctant to use a moisturiser with SPF in it as my skin can get oily throughout the day but since starting to use a Retinol product, I need the SPF.
I'm so happy and in love with this moisturiser! It's so lightweight considering it contains sunscreen and even better, it doesn't look oily/shiny, no white residue and only a slight sunscreen scent!
Skin- fair, combination
A little heavyI bought this for my hubby and he didn't love it - he found it a little heavy and slightly greasy. I ended up inheriting it and I've found it nice, but only when not wearing any makeup at all. With makeup it's quite heavy and everything seems to slide off after a couple of hours.
PerfectLove using this under makeup. Nice dewy appearance and smells like summertime because of the sunscreen in it.
GreatI swear by this product and use it everyday before applying my make-up. It is so light and goes a long way. The best thing is knowing you’re wearing SPF without it feeling thick and oily.
Feels like a moisturizerMy one concern when buying products with spf is that it will feel to heavy on my skin. This product makes me forget that I'm actually protecting my skin. It gets oily after awhile but ive always had that problem no matter what product I use. Definitely recommend.
Best SPF moisturiser I've foundAs far as moisturisers with an SPF go, this is probably my favourite so far.
I use this on days where I'm not wearing make-up as I find it a bit thick to wear under my daily tinted moisturiser. It isn't greasy which is a plus.
Great and light-weight!I have brown skin and usually products with sun protection can look quite ashy/purple when applied but this moisturiser is an exception! I wear it daily underneath make up and love that I know it is protecting my skin against the sun without feeling the oiliness or heaviness of a usual sunscreen.
100% Essential! Onto my third tube!What I look for in an spf moisturiser is min. SPF 30, but also something that doesn't leave any kind of white cast or texture so my makeup can go on undisturbed, or if I choose a makeup free day, it doesn't look like my face is either a shade too light or just battling grease.
I've tried so so many different facial sunscreens and moisturisers with spf, and I just keep coming back to this one. I think I'm done looking for alternatives. It's lightweight, absorbs super quickly, doesn't leave a cast or odd texture, and gives you a really lovely natural glow which you can either add make up to or just a touch of concealer and you're good to go!
While other spf moisturisers cause my makeup to look dreadful after a couple of hours, this one doesn't seem to cause any issues with staying power.
And of course the SPF does its job, so it really is the most essential, ultimate moisturiser!
Essential moisturiserTrying this as a new daily moisturiser and am very happy, makes my skin feel soft with added benefit of 30 + sunscreen. I spend a lot of time outside so reassuring to know I always have a high level of sun protection that feels good on.
Average MoistruserFound this product slightly heavy for my acne prone skin and a bit sunscreen like.
Like itThis is super hydrating and soft. It smells amazing - like you have just gone for a facial. It really does the job well I love it!
Great for Dewy Skin!A very hydrating moisturiser which I love to use twice daily...once before bed and once in the morning, which I love to wear under my foundation! It makes my face look super dewy and I know I am treating my skin to goodness! I also love that it contains sunscreen to protect my skin!
Great for an SPF productHave always hated using sunscreen as I can't stand that thick greasy feeling. I have been using this for a few months and find it pretty good. It's quite light when putting it on. Still a little greasy but soaks in within 20 mins. I sometimes just put translucent over it to hurry it along.
Easily Absorbed and good protectionThis product is lightweight so it absorbs easily and isn’t clogging, its works well under makeup with great sun protection
Great Daily SPF MoisturiserI love the SPF 30+ in this daily moisturiser. It makes wearing sun protection everyday very easy as it doesn’t have that SPF feel that a lot of other products have.
Perfect for everyday useLight and soft this is the perfect base for day to day wear. Non greasy and provides a good level of protection
Happy with itI don’t use this every day (as a lot of the other reviewers do), I mainly use it if doing outdoor activities like hiking. It’s nice to feel that my skin is still moisturised and not greasy or caked with sunscreen. I’m olive skinned, there’s an ever so slight white cast which sinks in and goes away.
Really great moisturiserLove this moisturiser with sunscreen. Did not irritate sensitive skin
Absorbs into skin but stings eyesIt's good under make up but maybe I'm just extra sensitive as it can sting my eyes and make them watery if I put it too close to my eye area. I prefer Alpha h 50+ tinted sunscreen.
Love it!I use this daily under my makeup, sinks into the skin beautifully and NO white cast! perfect under makeup to add moisture and protect from the sun.
AmazingUse this product everyday, love it
Good light moisturiserGreat daytime moisturiser. I do wish it was bigger and SPF 50+
My favourite!This is my favourite daytime moisturiser. I have combination oily skin and it doesn’t make me oily or feel greasy at all. It does everything; protects, hydrates, balances. I can’t really imagine using anything else after using this and I’ve tried a lot of different products both cheaper and high end. I’ve also spent a whole day at the beach in 30+ degree weather and didn’t get burnt at all on my face, definitely recommend :)
Excellent moisturiser- must haveThis moisturiser is fantastic! I tend to avoid anything with SPF as it makes me look greasy, shiny and an all round oil slick however this is matte finish sits perfectly under light make up for the day. It doesn't slip or sweat off and sits well. I use it under foundation without a primer and it looks great. Must have!
Nice productVery nice light weight moisturising with SPF. Not too greasy on my oily combo skin. love that it is every convenient when getting ready in the mornings. Only wished it was SPF 50+ though.
The 1st sunscreen I can wear without breaking out!I have combination skin prone to hormonal cystic breakouts and this is the first sunscreen I can wear daily without getting oily and then breaking out. Now Im in my late 20's sunscreen is a must I also use chemical exfoliants now I have my go to sunscreen. Dries perfectly and skin feels matte ready for foundation, not crazy about the smell but it doesn't last once it soaks in.
Excellent ProductThis moisturizer/sunscreen is great, I apply it shortly after I apply the Alpha-H daily moisturizer and gentle exfoliant. This product applies to the skin very well, it doesn’t feel thick on the skin and settles easily. My skin isn’t oily after applying it and my breakouts have been very minimal.
Pretty good sunscreenStings in my eyes but other than that seemed ok
Feels lovely on my skinMature age dry skin, sun screen a must in my view. This does not feel greasy or heavy on my skin like so many others have. I mix a small amount of foundation into this when applying. Perfect sheer natural look. Feels good all day.
Non greasy, comfortable wearingI'm heading for my mid 20's & have recently decided to join the anti ageing game. I've been applying this every morning for a couple of months now with no break outs or issues. I'd say one tube will last me about 3 months. It is moisturizing enough & is comfortable to wear & non-problematic under my liquid foundation.
LoveThis smells, feels, and works, just like a cream you would have applied at a professional facial! It is amazing and hydrating. Love it. YOu cant really smell the SPF or feel the thickness at all!
Really liking this product.I have combination skin, which goes from heavy hormonal breakouts to dry and flaky. I struggle finding moisturisers as they are either too heavy causing more breakouts or not moisturising enough for dry skin. This product is great, for an SPF moisturiser is isn't too heavy, and drys really nicely on the skin. The SPF smell is a little blah but you get used to it. Its not my favourite moisturiser however I do like it and will buy it again.
It DeliversI have used many different brands of daily moisturiser with SPF before and I have to say this is the brand that I could literally smell the sunscreen. I will give it a good to finish the product, but I am not sure whether I will re-purchase again. Having say so, it delivers the job. The texture is good and it won't leave your skin greasy.
Great, lightweight sunscreenI was looking for a new sunscreen, now that Jurlique has ceased producing SPF products, and this is great. It's lightweight and I find it easy to apply makeup over. I have oily skin so I needed something that would mattify and not produce oil through the day. My top tip: apply sparingly! The first time I used this, I applied too much and it was hard to blend in. Less is more and you'll end up with great coverage that is an ideal base for foundation if you take it easy!
Growing on meI love Alpha-H and needed to incorporate an SPF that I could use daily to protect my skin from the sun sensitivity from using AHAs. My skin is normal/dry and I do find this sunscreen moisturising. If I use too much it can be a bit oily though. Initially I wasn't overly wowed by the product, but now that I'm using less product, I'm starting to like it a bit more. My make up seems to go on well afterwards also. In summary, it does what it says...offers an SPF and can be used as a morning moisturiser. I don't think I would use this to layer on top of another moisturiser.
Wonderful productI have recently started using this product due to the fact it was a moisturiser + SPF 30 in one. Anything to make my life a little easier I am all for trying. So far I love this. It goes on super easy and feels very moisturising on my combo skin. Was not oily, nor did it dry me out. It is a fabulous base for my foundation and also ensures it stays put all day even without a primer. Very happy
Good SPF coverageThe best thing about this moisturiser is the SPF coverage - doesn't have a strong SPF smell which I like. Rolls a little bit if you put anything on top which I dislike, but an all-around good product.
Pretty goodI usually hate spf in moisturiser and it is a bit thick on the face however its necessary with the other Alpha H products because they can make your skin more sensitive to the sun once the dead layers are removed.
nice moisturiserNot a bad moisturiser, very strong sunscreen smell but not oily at all. For the price, nothing particularly special and doesn't last too long if you're using it daily given the tube is quite small
Good, but can’t put makeup on topGood sunscreen. But that’s it. Can’t use as a base for makeup as it rolls off into little balls at time of application and throughout the day. Also gets greasy throughout the day
Not oily and doesn't affect makeup wearabilityI've used other moisturizers with sunscreen and they tend to leave my skin feeling oily and my makeup never sets properly, wiping off after just a few hours
But this one feels great! It feels light and soaks into my skin. It doesn't impact my makeup application or wearability. A good choice.
Good daily moisturizer.A nice basic daily moisturiser with spf. Nothing amazing, but does the job. If you had dry skin not sure if this would be moisturizing enough
I wear this everyday, even if I don’t leave the house!Cannot speak highly enough of this product. Growing up with combo/ oily Asian skin, always found sunscreen moisturizers overly greasy and hated the shine so much. Needless to say, I found myself deterred by daily sunscreen for most of my early 20s (something I really regret now that I’m 28!). Last year I discovered this sunscreen and I have literally worn it every day, even when it’s overcast, all through winter, even when I don’t leave the house - my skin doesn’t hate it so wearing every day is not a problem! That is how much I love this product. Recommend to everyone and anyone. It’s also quite moisturizing so I don’t need to wear a separate moisturizer underneath - just cleanse, apply vitamin C and whack this on. Easy!
great moisturizer with spfTried this moisturiser for the first time after reading reviews. I love it, as it does not give the 'white' greasy look like other spf moisturisers. Light weight and super absorbent. Perfect for my combination skin. Would be great if it came in SPF 50+ for combination skin. A must have for summer
Must try!I have severely sensitive skin due to eczema. I have never used sunscreen in my life, hence my sunspots. I tried the Dermalogica range and had a reaction. This product is so far so perfect. Must must try! It’s not oily, it’s not drying. It’s great! I’ve heard a lot of good feedback fromany people also.
very nice sunscreenI purchased this sunscreen before I went overseas to Europe, I have incredibly oily, acne prone skin and I'm on medication which makes me sensitive to light. So because I am such a huge fan of the Alpha H liquid gold, I thought this would be perfect for not breaking me out. Yes it's fantastic for not going that typical oily consistency that sunscreen usually goes, but I found if anything it didnt hydrate my skin enough, I know, I know, you can't win can you - but I would just reccomend this product over the top of regular moisturiser.
The best SPFAn SPF that is the perfect primer, moisturises and protects! Face is fresh and not oily after wearing all day
Works great on oily skinJust like all my alpha H products this did not let me down! Having oily skin I was worried this product wouldn't work for me I was wrong! Perfect addition to my morning routine
Great ProductI searched high and low for a non greasy hydrating moisturiser with SPF benefits and this is it. I will continue to repurchase, I just wish it came in a bigger size.
So nourishingThis product is great for my sensitive skin and really leaves me feeling hydrated and moisturised. It's so smooth and definitely a new favourite.
Good product, needs to come in bigger sizeI wear this moisturiser everyday. Out of all my sunscreen moisturiser products this applys best. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is because for a ‘Daily Essential” product, the bottle is way to small to last very long and considering the price I wish I didn’t have to reorder so often.
My favourite moisturizerI am very picky with my moisturizers, because I don’t like the oily, tacky feeling of some moisturizers, and at the same time I dislike feeling like I didn’t put anything on at all. This product strikes the perfect balance. My skin feels moisturized and protected but never heavy
Great everyday moisturiserThis is a great spf moisturiser! I recommend this over all the ones I have used, i.e dermalogica, ultracerticals etc, its light weight not too greasy feels great! and SPF! a must for keeping your skin healthy
Great light SPF moisturiserAlpha - H can do no wrong in my opinion and this is another great product.
The moisturiser is super light and doesn't feel too much like sun cream. A little goes a long way and it spreads well on my skin after my facial mist and serums.
I use every day and it doesn't feel too heavy or leave me looking too shiny. I usually put on hylamide matt 12 after which helps get rid of any shiny bits.
I don't use foundation so not sure how it would look underneath.
I would definitely recommend this product and will repurchase once it runs out.
Awesome every day moisturizerUse every morning- onto my third tube now. Great under make up
Everyday stapleI use this moisturizer every day (with or without makeup), it's a great product. I do normally apply 5 minutes before make up so it has time to absorb as it is initially oily but dissipates quickly.
Great everyday moisturizerI love this product. It's great for under foundation. I have combination/oily skin and it works great with my skin type. It settles into skin really well, is not too thick and doesn't leave any white residue. I've just ordered my second tube.
overall goodDefinitely not oily but does not leave my skin dry. I have combination skin and so it leaves my skin matte. There isn't alot of product in this bottle though. I do recommend it for the price.
Really hydratingThis is a really good hydrating moisturizer. It has such a good and high spf as well that is great.
Amazing SPF 30 moisturizing sunscreenIt is absolutely different than any other face sunscreen which I had before. This cream is absorbing extremely quickly and leaving fresh skin without any oiliness or white residue, It would not be enough for my extremely dry winter skin on its own but in combination with good moisturizer it is a game changer. Also the SPF 30 is quite high which I absolutely love as most of the face creams with SPF have only SPF 15, and that is not enough for strong the Australian sun.
Love itthis is a lovely moisturiser, it does the trick without being too heavy. absorbs really quickly enabling foundation to go on straight after.
Every single dayWe all know that sunscreen is the number 1 anti ageing product and this moisturiser has spf 30, perfect.
Not like regular spf at all. Very thing, sinks into skin well and does not leave a sticky or shiny feel.
Undecided between the two!I own both this and the SPF50, but am completely undecided on which I prefer. They're both lovely, I do find this one is more moisturising though!
This sunscreen.... AMAZINGWith having sensitive skin, I have forever been on the search for a good sunscreen that my skin wouldn’t react to (either sting or breakout) and I am so glad I came across this product. Non oily, light and breathable on your skin. I originally bought a sample size and have since purchased the full size.
Good for everydaygood everyday moisturiser that sits well under makeup.
Prefer this to the 50+Really love this for my daily moisturiser. Light weight and a great foundation base. Prefer this over the 50+ which I found to be too heavy.
SurprisingInitially, this feels like a thick gluggy sunscreen that I normally would hesitate to put on my combo, blackhead-prone skin. Yet it feels surprisingly light when you apply it. I haven't used it enough to know if it is pore-clogging with continued use, but my first impressions are very positive.
Fantastic daily moisturiser with sun protectionThis is a great daily moisturizer with sun protection. I use it under my makeup every day. It's a great base, and it doesn't leave a white pale, which I was initially worried about. Does smell a little like sunscreen, but I enjoy that.
My Everyday Moisturiser Holy GrailI love this moisturiser. I have used it for a while now, I went to try another product, which could not compare at all. The only issue I get from this, is a bit of greasy areas in my T-zone, but that's an oily area for me and after at least 5 hours of wear.
The essential moisturiser not only feels light on the skin (even if it is thick when it comes out of the packaging) but feels refreshing, hydrating and makes your skin feel healthy and protected. I would and have recommended this product to my friends and family, it's my holy grail for sun protection and hydrating moisturiser.
Love this moisturiserI really struggle with moisturiser, as I am 44 years old, and have oily skin. But this one is perfect. Moisturising, but not oily. Great under make up, but also beautiful for those no make up days. Leaves my skin looking and feeling so fresh and glowy.
The cosistensancy is fairly thick, but applies beautifully.
Great everyday moisturiserI love this light moisturiser for everyday. If has SPF 30+ but doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy (even though I naturally have some oily areas). Also works fine in combination with the primer I use. Will definitely buy again
