So I thought I'd give this a go to cut down on having to use a separate moisturiser and sunscreen but was a bit hesitant to do so. I've used this for several weeks now and it's great! It moisturises my combo skin well and actually makes me skin look healthy and glowy. Sits great under make up! And the sunscreen component does not leave a white cast in the skin.

Broke me out
This product felt really nice on the skin if you're looking for a heavier, hydrating moisturiser that protects you from the sun but unfortunately it did break me out. However, being someone who has acne prone skin, this probably wont be the case for everyone. I will still save it for days I go in the sun a lot but wont be using it for everyday use. I also wouldn't recommend it under makeup as it is so heavy and made my makeup look greasy and patchy.

Great spfThis moisturising spf has a lovely texture and sits well under makeup without pilling or leaving a white ‘mask’.
Comfortable and sinks into the skin nicely.
Super impressed so far, I’d be interested to see how it performs on a super hot sunny day as I tend to burn easily.
GreatThe Moisturising Daily Defence is OUTSTANDING. It's beautiful and light on my skin. The perfect base before applying anything on my skin, including makeup. It is SPF 50+ which is essential throughout the year to protect skin from weather damaging and ageing.
ASAP MoisturiserI love this moisturiser but it is a bit greasy and thick with the sunscreen but i still think its great. I just put it on and wait 5mins before putting my make up on once its absorbed and it doesn't effect my make up.
PerfectPerfect texture but packs a punch. This product goes on well and doesn't just sit on top of the skin like other moisturises have with SPF. Makeup goes on well and doesn't leave my skin shiny or greasy.
GreatThis moisturiser is not greasy or tacky when you put it on, it smells wonderful and the fact that it has SPF in it is amazing! Would recommend 100%.
Doesn’t Leave A Cast!I love this sunscreen- it doesn’t leave a white cast and it isn’t greasy. It also leaves my skin feeling moisturised and not dry or tight.
However it does have a scent to it which I dislike.
great spfThis moisturising spf is great as it has the high 50SPF rating and also works well under makeup, which are the two things I really wanted. Its a good moisturiser for me, not too oily but gives good hydration. I don't like the smell of this product at all, its quite sunscreenish but I can overlook that given it works in other areas.
AmazingWho doesn't love a travel size product. This amazing moisturiser conveniently packaged into the perfect travel size product
Fresh- not too heavyEasy to apply, soaking in quickly and not too heavy.
Foundation sits well over the top.
Good price. Only criticism- slight chemical smell
I am prone to break outs and a change in sunscreen has not increased this
Absorb Well!!!!I truly need this !!! moisturize my skin in a sec. non oily lotion and its frangrance free. Purchase the 50ml to test it out will definitely getting the 100ml once this runs out.
Good sun protectionAs I have sensitive -combination skin, I don't really like heavy sunscreens but I really need one. This moisturizer provides a good level of SPF without feeling too heavy and greasy. I don't use it every day, just when I'm going to be outside for a while and need that sun protection and the good thing about this size is you can carry it around in your bag and reapply!
Lovely SPF for mixingLove this SPF moisturizer, i feel like my skin can still breathe when I have it on, doesn't take too long to absorb. It also mixes really well with foundation or some liquid bronzer for a nice light sheer coverage in summer
Gorgeous!This is great and didn't irritate my eczema prone face.
Really love this productThis feels silky smooth on and not greasy at all. My skin looks amazing after using this for a couple of weeks.
Fantastic productI love this product it’s very moisturising and the added plus off and spf 50! I’m in my early 30s and have normal/dry hormonal acne prone skin and this works for me.
Good all-rounderI really like this moisturiser as it is the first moisturiser with a high SPF that hasn't caused me to break out, however I feel like it took my skin a couple of days to get used to it. It's a little thick but I find a little goes a long way. It feels slightly oily after the initial application, although this soaks in. My skin type is combination and I do find by the end of the day that my T-zone still gets a bit oily. However I still really like this product and will continue to use it daily, particularly because of the high SPF.
Is fine for my skin typeI have combination skin type. I did use ASAP moisturising daily defence last year. It was OK but feel like little bit greasy. Did try another brand oily free face sun cream but it was too dry. My decision is go back to use ASAP. ASAP is suitable for me. Just one thing I don't like...is really hard to pump little amount.
SHE BURNS!!I have only used this product 3 times and it seriously burns my skin with each application. I even woke up in the morning with big scaly dry patches after using it the morning before. I have a full face, red irritated and bumpy rash. My skin is in no way sensitive or sensitised! Do not recommend.
Too heavyI didn’t like this SPF. It was too heavy and thick for my combo skin and it left my feeling greasy so unfortunately I don’t use it. This is a great skincare line though so definitely try other products.
Not the best moisturiserVery thick moisturiser. I believe it’s not the best ASAP moisturiser available. I found the moisturiser did nothing for my skin and due the the thickness, it was difficult to apply make up after application. Will not repurchase this product.
Love the 50+ SPFThis moisturizer works perfect under the three different types of foundations I wear. Though I do find on my no makeup days I have to reapply a few times throughout the day to keep my moisture levels up. I am still on the search the the perfect daily moisturizer with a high SPF. For reference, I have a dry skin type.
for all skin typesi have oily, acne prone skin and didn't think this would be the best moisturizer for me. when you take care of your face, work it in it moisturizes perfectly.
Skeptical at first, butthis is the most amazing daytime moisturiser - I have very oily skin and it feels greasy but you need to rub it in like all moisturisers, and it does the perfect job. Been using for over 2 years.
Love itSoaks into skin well and I’ve not been burnt since using it. Also haven’t got more freckles and it doesn’t give me pimples!
A little goes a long wayI purchased the full size after going through a bottle of the travel sized version since I liked it so much. It works well with my combination/oily skin even through the hot days. This is the only sunscreen with such high SPF to not break me out. I use it underneath my BB cream on a daily basis.
Good basic moisturising SPFThis is a really good moisturising and soothing SPF with additional benefits from niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. I have used this daily for around 5 years from when it was SPF 30. It works well under makeup. I wouldnt recommend for oily skin unless it was the only product your were using. Works well for normal to dry skin types. No white cast after blended. This is a physical AND chemical sunscreen so you get the pros of both formulas blended into one.
Amazingi bought this travel mini as a tester after hearing about how good it was at a ASAP event.. i was sceptical due to sensitive skin, but i am so glad i tried it . i will never change! thanks ASAP
Too oily for meThis is a very convenient 2-in-1 product however it is too oily for my combo skin. I personally prefer gel watery moisturisers followed by a light non-greasy sunscreen. This felt really thick when applied and my skin became really greasy quite quickly, did not work well under makeup. Better suited for dry skin types.
Good size for handbagThis smaller size is great to carry with you during the day so that you can top up your sunscreen as needed. Didn’t make me breakout and wasn’t to pasty white when applied
Not meant for each otherI bought this to try on my combination skin. Made my face appear oily and shiny post application. It also stings my eyes I had to stop using it. I like its high spf protection though.
Ok sunscreenI don’t really like the feel of wearing sunscreen. I got a few samples of this product to try and it didn’t feel too bad on. Good sun protection and didn’t make me break out after wearing it for a few days in a row.
Doesn't break me out!When I first applied this moisturiser I was concerned at its thickness leaving me shiny, and congesting my skin, but I was attracted to the high SPF 50 factor.
I've been using it for a fortnight now every single day & my skin is loving it! As soon as I apply a tinted cream or foundation there is no shine/oiliness. and my skin hasn't broken out at all like its known to with SPF. I'm very happy with this product and will continue to use it daily.
Thick but layers wellIt goes without saying that anything with SPF50 is going to have a thicker consistency than a SPF15 or 30. While I was hoping for something a little lighter, I have been pleasantly surprised by how well it sits under my makeup and am willing to make a few compromises for a higher level of protection. I usually put this on as soon as I get out of the shower in the morning and wait 5 mins for it to soak in before applying BB cream and concealer for a better result. Often I wait another 10 minutes after that and apply powder / blush which works well too. I also wore this on holiday for 2 weeks in very hot and humid weather and again was quite happy with how non-shiny my skin looked. I have combination skin, probably wouldn't recommend if you had greasy skin.
Not for oily skin, works better without makeupThis sunscreen is definitely more suited to dry skin types, there's no white cast when you rub it in well so that's a plus. However, it is a bit tacky and stung me a bit when I used it under makeup. So now I just wear it alone on no-makeup days and that works better for me.
Great 50+ moisturizerI've struggled to find a good 50+ moisturizer that feels light and delicate on my skin, this product is exactly that. I have noticed that my skin has even appeared less inflamed since using it. I suffer of rosacea and have very fair skin, so I love that I can wear this product and my skin doesn't feel as clogged like when using regular sunscreen. Highly recommend this product. Also, has a nice fragrance to it.
Greasy but non-irritatingI have dry skin which is sometimes in the sensitive side. Good news is, it did not irritate or sting my skin. The product also did not leave any white residue and blended in nicely. My issue with the product is that it left my shiny and sticky. My hair would stick to my face and even when I used powder over the top I still looked a bit greasy. It is a moisturising product though. I think I'll go back to physical sunscreen in the future. I'm glad I bought the smaller version of this cream.
Nice everyday sunscreenWas looking for a physical sunscreen for everyday use and this seems to be doing the job. It has a pleasant smell and seems to get absorbed by the skin much better than any other physical sunscreen that I've used. It does look very oily when I first put it on, so I usually apply the sunscreen then do my hair and by the time I'm ready for make up, its all absorbed and my skin looks and feels soft and dewy rather than oily. So far I like it better than any other brand I've tried
Broke me out!!This product broke me out and I had to stop using it after only a few days. I have combination skin and I believe it was just too rich and thick. I definitely need something more light weight. I gave this product to my sister who has drier skin and she seemed to have more success with it.
Best of the BestThe product I would choose if I could only have one beauty item. Provides protection from the sun, beautifully moisturises, and makes my skin glow. Always kick myself when I run out of it as it is an essential everyday product for me. I hope asap never stop making this.
Not in love- too greasyI really wanted to like this sunscreen/moisturiser but it smells too much like sunscreen and leaves my face feeling slick and greasy. I'll use it for days that I plan spending many hours in the sun, but I was looking for something to chuck on before my commute to work (I don't wear make up to work but I often walk to work so I need something on my face to protect my skin but don't want to look like I just ran a marathon) that would also work as a moisturiser. No dice for that, but at least I can still use it.
Perfect for everyday wearThis product is great for people who like to wear a full coverage SPF everyday! It has a nice scent and even dewy texture/look. I have dry/combination skin and I find it works well to give hydration without oiliness, and sits well under a liquid foundation.
LightweightI was looking for a lightweight sunscreen to wear alone or under make up and boy does this feel so nice on the skin without feeling heavy and becoming oily like other sunscreen do. I actually like how it feels under the make up too. Would highly recommend
Not soldUnfortunately, I wasn’t a huge fan of this moisturiser. I wanted to be after all I love ASAP products but it was too thick and sticky and too similar to a sunscreen rather than a moitisuriser. I believe there are better spf moisturiser on the market.
Excellent natural sunscreenHave dry/oily sensitive skin (yikes) and am really picky about what I put on my face. I love this product because it’s basically just easily spreadable zinc. The bottle lasts for ages (you only need a very small amount, like the size of a pinky nail), it goes on really nicely (absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave me shiny), and sets well with my face powder. I 10/10 recommend this, will buy again.
Tick so many boxes but too oily for my skinI bought this because it has niacinamide and it's SPF 50. The cream has a smooth texture and goes on the skin easily. It feels oily on my hand and my face, and left my face shiny, looking oily. I have combination skin and maybe this is more suitable for dry skin. It is a small bottle for the price.
OilyNot suitable for my skin as I felt really greasy afterwards and looked shiny. May be better for people with dry skin.
Great spf coverageI was really happy with this product. I bought the smaller 50ml to give it a go . Really good coverage with the small product I used . Quite concentrated. The smell isn’t too bad really . It does the job well without making my skin breakout . I have combination skin and am in mid/late 20s . Suited my age and skin type well
AverageOverall I'm in love with the asap skin care products, however this product is my least fave.
Quite shiny and a little tacky almost like it is not absorbing nicely.
Break outs more frequent when using this product.
I will choose a different spf for my skin next time
OutstandingThe Moisturising Daily Defence is OUTSTANDING. It's beautiful and light on my skin. The perfect base before applying anything on my skin, including makeup. It is SPF 50+ which is essential throughout the year to protect skin from weather damaging and ageing.
GreasyI have an oily t-zone and, while giving good sun protection, this moisturiser comes through my makeup in a very greasy way. I used it until I found dermalogica age smart and the solar defense solution, but it doesn't compare.
It's a good size to get and try out, though! It may work better for your skin than mine
Not for oily skin typesI have an oily T-Zone and found this moisturiser way too oily for my skin. It made me look super shiny and I felt greasy, may be better for those with dry skin!
great for every dayWhen I bought this SPF moisturiser , I used it every day until it ran out. I really like the smell and while others complained about the oily texture, I didn't mind it as it made my skin look dewy. I wouldn't recommend wearing this if you intend to wear makeup though
really oilyThis sun protection is really oily for me. It's a not bad daily sun protection but not goes for me.
caused breakoutsI liked the smell and consistency of this product, it also provided the perfect amount of moisturization for my combination skin however it did make my breakouts worse I am thinking because of the SPF. unfortunately for me every single product with sunscreen in it that I have tried makes my breakouts a lot worse.
I think this would be perfect for anyone that doesn't have breakout prone or oily skin
Full protectionThis product has a high sun protection which makes me feel safe from sun burn and wrinkles! It is very moisturising and keeps my skin hydrated all day long. The only negative is that it is a little oily under my liquid make up. However I do highly rate this product so I will be finding a foundation that works well with it!
Sample from Peru Holiday HeroesI got this in the Adore Beauty Peru Holiday Heroes, and it was great to test this, I found this to be an ok, daily SPF moisturiser, but I wouldn't say it is in my top 5, I find it be to be heavier than asap's night cream
Great sunscreenIf you don’t usually wear sunscreen, then this may seem too thick or oily for you as a moisturiser. But compared to other sunscreens with SPF 50+ this is the best one I’ve found, the least shiny and oily! Bought this smaller size to try it out, and I’ll definitely purchase the 100ml once I’ve run out. A great sun protection, to prevent wrinkles, aging and sun spots. You can also reduce the shininess of sunscreen by wearing a translucent powder on top.
Very oilyGreat sun protection but is really oily. I will try another 50+ sunscreen to try and find something less oily before buying this product again.
Too heavy for me!I purchased this on the recommendation of a friend.
The product is quite thick and feels a lot like sun cream instead of moisturiser.
I found it far too heavy for me - it took a lot to absorb and left my skin looking super shiny. Basically its just like normal suncream.
I guess because its got such a high SPF it makes sense its a bit thicker! I don't wear foundation so can't comment on how this would look under makeup.
I have kept mine and will just use it as a normal sun screen on high UV days.
Don’t need to muchA little oily if to much is used. Do need to give it a bit of extra time to be absorbed. I have oily,combination skin and it works well for me.
Great sun protectionThis product offers great spf coverage on days where I’m not wearing makeup. It doesn’t cause me to have breakouts and is good for sensitive/oily skin when not wearing makeup. This moisturiser is ideal for going to the beach or exercising outside.
not bad, not too badI used this moisturiser when going on a 30 day walk through spain. I used this every day and found it really took care of my skin. I never got burnt and never got breakouts. I find its a little oily but thats probably due to the sunscreen if you dont use too much this can be a great SPF moisturiser to go to!
A bit oilyPlayed rather oily under makeup and didn't absorb into my skin so well. No white cast, though, so that's good? Not replacing my dermalogica age defense 50+, regrettably
What you'd expectThis product was what I expected it to be, thick due to the high SPF, however, the lack of strong fragrance was well received by my sensitive skin. When worn under makeup however it encourages the makeup to sit onto of the sunscreen and not absorb into the skin. Would recommend in the summer if wearing no makeup or a light makeup at the most.
Fairly OilyProbably good for those with dry skin, but as I have oily skin, definitely not ideal. Smells heavily of sunscreen. Makeup melts straight off my face. Might be good in proper summer when you don't wear makeup maybe?
Good ProtectionGreat Protection and feel. Can be a bit too oily in the hotter months to use with make up though!
Not good for acne prone skinAfter receiving this as a sample, I had high hopes for this product when I took it on a trip to Bali with me. Unfortunately - especially in a hot climate - it make my skin completely break out and become irritable. I also hate the feeling that my skin cant breath and this was just too think and greasy for me. Perhaps its better on less sensitive skin.
Not my favourite..A little too greasy for my liking, takes a while to work the white cast away too. Definitely would recommend a different suncreen - maybe the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50! :)
My go-to at the momentThis is my go-to SPF 50 at the moment. It's light and spreads quite nicely. It does appear quite shiny, but most SPFs seem to do so anyway. The sunscreen has surprisingly lasted me a while. ASAP is cruelty-free which I love too.
To shineyProduct is great so easy to go on but I find it stays shiney on my skin all day and it’s hard to put a powder on top
Suprisingly lightI found this product was surprisingly light given it's also spf50. I'm really pleasantly surprised. It also doesn't feel heavy under makeup. I'll definately get it again.
EhI got this in a sample and my skin did not agree with this. Left me feeling incredably oily, didn't seem to soak into my skin but more just sit on top of my skin. I have normal, combo skin. My mum is older and has thin and aging skin and she seems to love this so it might be for older skin.
Not amazing but OKI'd been looking for a moisturiser with SPF50 for a while, and this one had some good reviews. I quite fairly sensitive & dry skin prone to redness. It hasn't made me break out or anything, but it is a bit greasy, and makes your face feel & look greasy all day. It's not the worst, but also not amazing!
Great spf moisturiserI mainly have oily skin and this moisturiser goes on very well and does not make me more oily. I like it because of the high spf. It is a little thick so it takes a little to sink into the skin but overall is a great product and would recommend.
Liking so farI've been using this for a couple of weeks and so far so good.
I have oily acne prone skin and I've always struggled with sun screens making me congested and giving me breakouts.
This is pretty heavy, but it doesn't feel to heavy once applied.
Very light scent, not really like sunscreen, so pleasant.
It's not super moisturising which is okay for now with my oily skin, but coming into winter I'm not sure it will be enough.
I'll keep using it and see how I go!
Great findThis came along side other products I’d ordered with the asap range and I was pleasantly surprised. This spf moisturiser is hydrating without being greasy and does not leave white residue like some sunscreens do (I have a tan complexion). I am repurchasing for sure.
Not for sensitive skin/rosacea sufferersLike many other sunscreens this one stings my skin on application. I kept it on to see if the stinging would eventually subside - it blended in, set and was easy to blend makeup over. Unfortunately the stinging continued and the irritation make my skin feel dry and tight and I had to wash it off. Disappointing as this was listed as suitable for sensitive skin.
This would probably be a good sunscreen for people with normal skin.
GreasyIt did the job for my holiday where I was swimming/sunbathing etc. However ffor me it’s too greasy for every day as powders and such don’t sit well on top.
High hopes but didn’t deliverI’ve been desperately searching for a physical sunscreen that’s lightweight for my face. This is not the sunscreen for me!
It’s thick and it clogged my pores. I’m now using it up as a general sunscreen for my legs and arms.
The search for the perfect physical sunscreen continues
a bit thickthe texture of this was a little thick for me. I could feel that I was wearing it. Might be great for someone with really dry skin, but I was glad when the tube ran out.
Excellent!Small size but it lasts for so long! A small tiny blob spreads onto my face and all down my neck! Light yellow in colour, thick but not greasy and the added spf keeps my face from burning jn the South Australian heat!
Great for Summer!!If you're trying to decide whether to get this or not, definitely do it. It's so worth the price, it's soft and creamy and doesn't leave the gross feeling sunscreen usually does. Definitely worth it!
Great so far - long lastingI have normal skin and so far this product has been great -- you only need a tiny pea size which I do twice in the AM and PM. Should last ages - very happy so far. It feels like a very gentle product on the skin which could sometimes make you think it isn't doing anything at all.
AmazingI purchased this as i was looking for a non whitening spf with anti ageing benefits. I must say, very impressive. It makes my skin glow but not greasy, it doesn't have much of a smell, and definitely moisturises! Most importantly, it's not tested on animals :)
Not for sensitive, porcelain skin.When I put a small amount on my face for the first time, redness and pimples appeared all over my forehead and cheeks the following morning. While applying, there was a burning sensation and it left an oily residue.
Surprised by the negative effect it had on my skin, I looked at the ingredients and it's all a bunch of chemicals - there's nothing natural or organic in the product. Very disappointed.
SurprisedI bought this product as it was a handy travel size for overseas, it had sunscreen and the reviews were positive. I didn't intend to use this long term, but after using it, will definitely keep on using. Generally use far more expensive products on sensitive combo skin, but this was brilliant. Skin was a mess after long haul flights; the dryness, redness disappeared in days leaving smooth clear skin. Will be trying more asap.
A great moisturiser for sensitive skinI bought a small size of the Daily Defence spf30 to see what reaction it had on my skin. I have extremely sensitive skin with other sensitive brands making my skin look like its burnt. I don't tan i just burn so was delighted to find that this spf felt wonderful on my skin. I haven't been sunburnt since i started using this 4 months ago.
Its a bit pricey compared with my old brand but i wont use anything else. The small size is great for your handbag or if your travelling.
excellent productI've used this for some time now. It's a great non greasy alternative to sunscreen. I use it everyday. It absorbs well and is effective. I would highly recommend it. I have very sensitive skin and have found no problem using this. The 50ml tube is an excellent travel size.
Perfect for travelingHaving recently converted back to ASAP, I've just bought a pack of mini's and added this to my stash for a month trip to Europe. Have trialled it twice and am happy thus far. It takes away a step in my morning routine while on holiday and wanting to get out exploring ASAP (excuse the pun!) each day. Having oily but dehydrated skin, I think this is going to really work for me in a summer climate... Hope so anyway!
Great everyday moisturiserReally good daily moisturiser for normal skin types. I use it in the morning, mixed with foundation, and love the coverage - it's never too greasy, though it might prove a bit too light come winter when my skin flakes a bit. Inoffensive scent, slightly sunscreen-y. Give it a try!
