Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 ($13.99) Specifically formulated as a facial moisturizer, Cetaphil® UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 provides broad spectrum UV protection with an optimum blend of five filters. The moisturizing formula hydrates the skin for 8 hours and absorbs quickly. Micronized Titanium Dioxide leaves no filmy white residue. Non-greasy, lightweight, fragrance-free, non-irritating, and non-comedogenic, this moisturizing product is ideal for daily facial use.
Cetaphil is known for its gentleness so I figured I would try out the Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 facial moisturizer. Was it gentle? NO! It stung and burned my face so bad. It also made my face look really shiny and greasy. The sunblock doesn’t absorb quickly so it does not mix well with makeup. I also had a difficult time applying and smoothing out the thick cream. Another bad thing about the Cetaphil UVA/UVB Defense SPF 50 is when it finally absorbs into your skin, it leaves an unattractive white cast. I wish there was something positive to say about the facial moisturizer, but there isn’t. Save your money and buy a different facial moisturizer with SPF.
