Average rating: 4.3 out of 5 hearts

A small amount goes a long way. I only need 1 pump and that leaves my face incredibly smooth and hydrated. I love the scent. Nice and light, but sweet. I think this works great as a day time moisturizer. And I like that it has zinc in it for the sun protection.

Highly Recommend - very nourishing and smells nice!
I really like this solar day cream, and I love the Body Deli’s products. This leaves my face nourished and moisturized. Not too light or heavy, just right. It has a wonderful fragrance that reminds me of the tropics, plus it’s loaded with organic ingredients that are good for my skin.

Light consistency, but not sure about sun protection
Overall, I am happy with this product. I have been looking for an everyday spf moisturizer that feels light enough to wear under makeup. So far, this is the only one that’s met that criteria. However, I agree with the other reviewer that I’m not sure it’s providing much actually sun protection. I guess a little is better than none though. Also, I’m not crazy about the smell. It reminds me a bit of creamsicles, which isn’t unpleasant or anything, but I much prefer herbal smells as opposed to sweet or savoury in my skincare. The consistency is nice and it absorbs fairly well. Doesn’t leave a white cast. I really recommend using another product though if you’re worried about sun exposure.

I like the idea, but....
I’m not sure whether or not it’s providing any substantial protection from the sun. I love that it doesn’t leave a white film on my face and the consistency is nice. But, I have my doubts about it’s effectiveness as a sunscreen/sun block. I have a little jar of it at work and put it on when I go for a walk at lunchtime…it’s perfect for that.

I love love love this cream. It is a sunblock as well so I don’t have to worry about finding a sunblock to put on top of my moisturizer and that is a big plus for me. It goes on easily, is just the right amount of moisturizing for daytime. Most of all it seems to help keep my perioral dermatitis (close to rosacea) at bay. It does not make it worse which most creams do and in fact helps calm it. I have tried many different organic face creams and this is the best I have ever tried.

No white geisha mask - yea!
This is the only natural mineral sun block product I’ve found that doesn’t leave that greasy geisha white mask look. The spf isn’t as high as I’d like, but for daily use when I’m not outside in the elements too much, it is ideal. Highly recommended.

What's not to like?
It’s a bit light for winter even for my normal skin but it will be great in the summer. I love the texture, the scent and the end result. The ingredients are fantastic too.

Great Spf/ moisturizer
I absolutely love this cream! Ive spent hundreds on different spf moisturizers that make me greasy and break out. This one is light but very hydrating. So happy I decided to give it a try, my search is over! Highly recommended for oily skin types

I use this everyday
I live in a sunny climate so I’m very aware of the need for a daily SPF cream (as should everyone, frankly, even if you’re not in a sunny place). This is not the thicker, more potent sun screen I would use if I was spending the day outside at the beach, but it’s the perfect block for daily wear under makeup. It’s not a heavy zinc oxide white cream. A light rub in and it just sinks into my face, protecting me and nourishing me. Even if it didn’t have the SPF in there, I would love this cream for it’s moisturizing antioxidant qualities. Id’ say this was a must-have.
