Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't use anything else Great product for all year round protection and moisture. Not heavy and doesn't give me any under the skin spots that some moisturisers do. Suits my normal/combination skin perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit greasy I bought this for the SPF and in the hope it would brighten my skin. The only difference I've noticed so far is it makes my skin feel quite greasy and shiny after use and I feel I need to wear makeup over the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without it I originally bought this as my friend was he manager of murad Debenhams Trafford centre and I just cannot live without it. My skin is just not the same with anything else or cheaper products

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stings my eyes I like this moisturiser goes on well doesn't go clumpy when you apply foundation, smells nice and as you don't need loads it will last well. However for some reason this product stings my eyes - it's a day moisturiser and sun block (and I suspect it is the sun block) so has to go over my eyes but it really stings. It got so bad today I washed it off so I think I will end up throwing it away complete waste of money. My eyes are not sensitive either would hate to see on someone whose are!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely smell and it works! I won this in a competition. I would never have thought to buy it as I'd never heard of Murad. I loved it so much that I have bought some more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great moisturiser I have bought this a few times now. I like it as it has a sun protection, feels easy to spread on and smells refreshing. I have 30 year old skin so I wanted one that prevented fine lines and acne. I feel it works well and even better than Creme de la Mer that I use to use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light moisturizer WITH an SPF! I've just finished my first tube of this and I love it. It's so difficult to find a light moisturizer with good coverage and an SPF but this does it. Couldn't say enough good things about it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Day Moisturiser When I first used the Day Moisture, I was skeptical. It was fragranced with that light orange scent, however, I could smell the scent that screams “I have SPF in me!!”. That said, it’s not as strong as other products such as the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Lotion which I used to find the scent would seep into my tastebuds! What I love about this moisturiser is though it is light in texture it still keeps my skin hydrated throughout the day. My skin never feels tight after a long day. I have used it over a month and have definitely noticed my skin to be consistently radiant and “dewy”, which I love!. I have spent a lot of time in the sun over the summer months and I have no pigmentation or had any breakouts; I am able to wear very little make up and feel confident about my skin. I think it’s fair to say that I am pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent moisturiser I won this in a competition. I would never have bought a moisturiser costing this much and I love it. It smells great and my skin feels amazing. It has lasted months and today I have used the last precious bit. I'm really sad. I highly recommend this product as it is not great, sinks into the skin and makes a difference. I am mid sixties and my skin needs all the help it can get.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great stuff had a facial and was told that needed vitamin C. Bought this and it is great ... moisturises but does not cause breakouts ... also cleans off the dead cells and skin looks better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I bought this a month ago and my skin is noticeably more vibrant , glowing and blemish free. I love the smell of this moisturiser and it lasts a very long time, worth the money ! Love the product !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this. I love this range and am steadily buying it all. This moisturiser is an instant 'don't you look well' and I am seeing a longer term benefit too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent moisturiser I am delighted with this product. It does the combined job of the three products I had been using previously - and better - all on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect moisturiser for summer This is my favourite cream for the Summer as it has a high broad spectrum SPF. It's really hydrating, yet light and not at all greasy. My skin feels cared for and protected, and looks fresh and radiant. I always use it on beach holidays and when I'm out running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful stuff! I bought this around two months ago and it's worked wonders on my complexion! I have freckles, age spots and an oily T-zone. This cream has balanced my skin and evened out the tone. I've also used the serum and sun block where needed. Love it!
