This used to be my go-to summer moisturizer because it has SPF 15 (although you should be wearing SPF all year round). It is a Gel-creme so it is not too greasy and is quickly/easily absorbed into skin. However, like with most SPF moisturizers, my skin did become more slick when exposed to the sun. This moisturizer got rid of most of my flakey skin, and so I still often use it around my nose area. This is a great product and comes in both normal to oily skin and normal to dry skin so is great for all skin types. I would strongly suggest this as a summer moisturizer to be put on before make up or instead of.

I love this stuff! I have been using a sample size of it forever around my nose area and it is THE ONLY THING I have found so far that gets rid of my stubborn flakes with one use each time! I use it every morning before putting on my makeup and the flakes don't come back! It's amazing! I strongly suggest this for anyone who has very dry skin. Its claim is : "Nutritic instantly penetrates the skin with no greasy residue, soothing all sensations of dryness. Continued use leaves skin feeling soft and supple with greatly improved hydration." I have been waiting for this to go on sale so that I can purchase an entire bottle of it for when I have dry skin! I love this stuff!!
