Staying hydrated and protected by the sun are two of the most important features of what I expect in a day cream. Hydra-Sol accomplishes both. I touch my face later in the day and I still feel the fresh feeling. The cream doesn't make me perspire as much as most SPF day creams. I'm mostly inside during the work week, but I live in California and must be sun-screened daily. This is my choice for daily moisturizer.

Love this moisturizing creme wear it most of the year over any serum for daytime. I find it blends in to my skin easily, and I like the herbal smell.

I like this face sunscreen. It goes on smooth and does not have much of a scent. Also it does not irritate my skin

Wonderful sun block, I ride horses and am in the sun daily, This is not greasy and has done a wonderful job at protecting my skin. It goes on with a little difficulty but I dab it on and just wait a few seconds and my body heat warms it and then it spreads easily on my face. This is my second jar!

There is nothing I don't love about this product. I tend to have oily skin, even though though I am in my 50's and could never do a moisturizer. Not only does this not break me out, but it smells and feels heavenly, makes my skin look younger and has the added bonus of being a sun screen. It doesn't get much better than that!

I love, love, love this product. Worth every penny, and I don't say that lightly. I have very sensitive skin and this product is very kind to my skin. I like the smell, but it fades quickly if you're not crazy about it. I have mild rosacea, and it keeps the skin on my face from getting tight and dry. It's not at all greasy. It's really too bad that they call it an "anti-aging" moisturizer, though I'd rather be getting older than be dead. I'm pro-aging! I've earned every one of my wrinkles and grey hairs. "Dear Enessa whatever happened to feminism?"

I was looking for a natural daily moisturizer with sunscreen that was also anti-aging. I have not been very happy with this as it feels as though I am putting putty on my face. It is very thick and does not feel good on my face and does not really absorb fully or easily into my skin. I looked and did not find another product with the SPF20 that has the properties I was looking for--maybe you could recommend? I prefer not to have to use a moisturizer and then add another layer of sunscreen.

About 3 years ago I began using some of your face creams(enessa argan anti-aging moisture gel, and the enessa plantcell lifting serum). Then I added the enessa anti-aging moisturizer with SPF 20, and recently the lotus moon vita-A-complex and the lotus moon pumpkin enzyme peel. I love all your products! I will never go back to the over-the-counter products. Your products have never let me down, and they do what they say. Thank you Isabella catalog!

The cream is a bit thick and takes some effort to work into my skin. It's not light but once worked into my skin does not feel greasy or sticky. I received it just before a trip to Hawai'i and used it prior to going out sometimes several times a day. I like that this is sun protection without chemicals. I wish it was not quite so thick. I will continue to use it and see how I get along with it long term. (The sun protection I had been using before I got this was very light, my skin absorbed it easily and it went well over my regular moisturizer...but I think it's worth giving this a shot as what my skin was absorbing was mostly chemicals.)

I appreciate the natural ingredients in this sunscreen, but the "earthy" scent is off-putting for me, however the scent does fade after a while. I also find that it makes my skin look a little drab. I don't think this can be helped due to the zinc content. I'm currently using it on my neck and using tinted BB cream (SPF 30) on my face. I don't think I will purchase this again.

I really love this product and pretty sure that as long as I can I will continuously use it.. The smell is amazing and calming, very Earthy. What I truly love most about it is the shine control! I live in and travel to high humidity areas and this amazingly controls all shine hours on end. I don't have to worry about my makeup melting off or reapplying powder every 30 minutes! Love that! The only downer is that there is not a larger option to purchase or a local store I can run out and buy immediately, as I run out quickly. In any event, thank you!

I really like this moisturizer sunscreen, it does not turn your face ghostly white like many zinc products. It goes on smoothly and lasts.

I wear this every day to hydrate my skin and have protection from the sun. It's never greasy and doesn't make my face perspire like so many other sun blocks. I love the way it smells. I think I'll probably use it forever.

I like this very much. Very good sunscreen under makeup. The few brown spots I had vanished (no exposure to sun) and I like the feel of the moisturizer. I did not find it hard to spread, but I usually put on moisturizer immediately after washing my face while it is still damp.

I like the combination of moisturizer and non-nanosunscreen but will probably not buy again. I use BB cream or mineral foundation, and both tend to clump up when applied over this product, so I can use it only when I do not plan to use foundation. Will probably go back to using a moisturizer without SPF and get my sun protection from another product .

I love this product it works great! I care a lot what I put on my skin it has to be free of sulfates, parabens, and other harmful chemicals and this product, like the rest, are free of all that.

This is the first sunscreen I have been able to use in years. I had such a sensitivity to all face specific sunscreens I had tried that I had resigned myself to hoping a hat would prevent sun damage. I hate hats! This is so great that I interchange it with my Sea Chi creme which I love! even if I am not going to be outside a lot. For the first second or two it feels heavy like a sunscreen but then I don't feel it at all! Even better, I don't break out or get itchy from it. I am very active and find it even holds up to sweat, with no stinging lotion running into my eyes. Great sunscreen and it lasts a long time!!

Love love love this. I had been using another organic product that felt like clown paint. This is exactly as described - smells nice, feels nice & works well. Very happy with it.

Tried the cream and unfortunately it was the was the opposite of the description in the catalog. the fragrance was too rosy and did not have a good smell. The cream itself felt dry and did not go on smoothly.

This is my "go to" moisturizer for daytime. Even though it's got a SPF20, it blends nicely into my skin and words well under foundation. I keep re-ordering this product as I like it so much!

I had high hopes after reading reviews and having tried other Enessa products. I really don't like this cream- it feels very drying on my skin and is hard to spread. I have to thin it with another oil to put it on...

The jury is still out. I like the way it goes on - isn't slimy. I'm waiting to see if it's this that bothers my eyes or something else. I have VERY sensitive eyes - not the norm.

I LOVE this product. I have fair, sensitive skin and have looked for years for a natural sunscreen that does not use nano particles nor make my skin break out. This one is amazing! And my 49 year old skin has never looked better. Thank you Isabella!!

This is the first moisturizer I have found which protects my skin from the sun at the same time as it treats it with anti-aging ingredients. It does NOT leave a white coating on your face, which has made me shun other sunscreens and is non-greasy. I use Retin-A and was desperate to find just such a cream. Congratulations to Michelle.

I found this moisturizer to be somewhat heavy for my skin. It didn't readily absorb and felt heavy all day. I would recommend it for someone with very dry skin. Great smell.

I am on my third jar of this! It's the best moisturizer sunscreen that I've ever found that doesn't use nano-particles. It disappears under makeup and my skin feels great. My search is over for good sun protection for my face without the whiteness or shine I was getting from other products.

So far, I love this lotion. It smells great, feels wonderful and only a small amount is needed. Honestly, I haven't had much sun exposure since purchasing it. Although, one day I went downhill skiing on a blue bird sunny day and did not return home with a burn.

Great product! I have rosacea and have had a pre-cancerous lesion on my face, so I am very careful about the products I use. This one feels good on my skin and keeps my skin soft and smooth. And I really appreciate having the SPF protection in a natural product, since I avoid preservatives and other harmful substances as much as possible. I am 68 years old, and have gone through almost two jars of this great moisturizer.

This stuff is good for sun protection, but it dries out my skin and seems to make any fine lines I have look deeper. I only use it sometimes and I'm looking for a different moisturizer that has UVA/UVB protection. I have sensitive skin, so at least this product doesn't make me break out.

Second time I've purchased this. At first I was intimidated by the thickness and price! of this cream, but now I'm convinced it's worth the price and the small effort to learn how to use it. You don't need to slather on like you might with lesser products! The small jar will last a reasonably long time since fingertip amounts, gently massaged into small areas, one at a time, will leave plenty of product where it needs to be. I find it's best to wait a minute or two before applying mineral foundation, but that this two-step make-up with moisturizer helps keep my face feeling good all day.

I like the ingredients in this moisturizer. I can't tell if it makes any improvement in my skin, but I feel good about what I'm putting on my face.

This does not spread really easily, but it will with a little massaging. I am not crazy about the odor-not unpleasant but just not great. I love the nano zinc oxide, though, because that is what the dermatologists recommend. It leaves my skin smooth and not greasy or coated feeling.

I hesitated about the price but am so glad I trusted Isabella. My search for an effective facial sunscreen that doesn't irritate is over! The organic moisturizer also means I can use either this or Sea-Chi Creme depending on sun exposure. Its light musk scent would be neutral enough for men too and actually dissipates if anyone is sensitive to scents. Thank you for another high quality product.
