It’s been over a month of using this sunscreen. Here’s what I think about it now. πŸ™‚

I love the fact that this sunscreen is pretty inexpensive for what you get. As I mentioned in my previous review, you get 4 fl. oz of product for $10ish. Other sunscreens/sunblocks I’ve seen (for the face), they give you under 2 fl. oz of product (but costs much more). That’s one great thing about Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30. But, there are some things I would like to mention about this sunscreen. First, it is not moisturizing during the colder months. Since the weather is changing right now (it’s getting cold and cooler), I’ve noticed that it isn’t that moisturizing. It does quite the opposite…it dries out my skin! In the summer months, it’s oily and NOT oil absorbing. Next, this sunscreen burns my eyes. I don’t even get it in or near my eyes. Somehow my eyes get teary every time I use it. It has a strong chemical smell to it that I don’t like. My eyes are too sensitive for this sunscreen, so I’m on the search for something that’s more moisturizing (not greasy) and doesn’t burn my eyes/make it teary. 😒

Alright everyone! ☺ I have a new (not really new) facial sunscreen! I thought I would give Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 a go once again! I’ve been having trouble finding one that is suitable for my skin type. This time around, my skin is looking so much better. πŸ™ŒπŸ» I thought, maybe this could work?? More about this sunscreen before I share my experience on it…


This is not my first time using Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 (as mentioned earlier). I have a few experiences with this sunscreen. Mostly bad? haha. Don’t think I’m weird for trying it out again. lol. Sometimes, it might work. And sometimes, it doesn’t work. After Acure Radically Rejuvenating SPF Day Cream failed on me, I’m happy that I gave Differin Oil Absorbing Moisturizer SPF 30 another chance! Read on! πŸ™‚

Since my skin is on the drier side as of late (due to being on an acne treatment), this sunscreen has been doing a great job at moisturizing my skin but also protecting it! It’s truly a 2-in-1 skin care product. My skin feels hydrated throughout the day when I have it on. It feels like a lightweight lotion. Nothing heavy. I like that. It comes in a 4 fl. oz bottle instead of a 1.7 oz (Acure). When I apply the sunscreen to my skin, I can be very generous and reapply as needed (when I’m not wearing makeup). This sunscreen absorbs into the skin pretty well. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue behind. My makeup goes over it nicely without the sunscreen balling up. Fortunately, it has not broken me out as of yet. πŸ™‚πŸ™‚ I really hope it stays that way. Even though it states that it is an ‘oil-absorbing’ moisturizer, I can’t tell if it is. My skin needs all the moisture it can get right now. With continued use, I’ll be sure to make an update on that. This has been working for me so far…
