    I need a lifetime subscription option.

    I've bought just about every sunscreen "under the sun" for my boyfriend to try. He hates sunscreen and never wears it. He hates how it feels greasy. And they almost always (even the stuff that's not supposed to) make him breakout. AND... getting him to even TRY a new one is like pulling teeth! Well... guess what?! He really likes your Raspberry & Green Tea Daily Defense! It's a miracle! LOL! As you promised, it does not feel greasy and it does not make him breakout. He doesn't wear it every day, so that little bottle will last a while. But you will definitely be hearing back from me when we're ready for more! Thank you soooooo much for developing such a great product!

    I ADORE this lotion! A must-try moisturizer with so many purposes. It literally feels like velvet on your skin. It has a brownish tint so it acts like a mild tinted-moisturizer, and was a surprise makeup primer that kept my face and makeup looking smooth all day. A real gem, this product is one you don’t want your face to age without.

    I love your face sunscreen! Never have I truly enjoyed applying sunscreen. This product is wonderful.

    I love to water ski, snow ski, bicycle and garden, hence I need an effective moisturizing sun screen. I’ve been using the Daily Defense for a while now and I love how it moisturizes my skin while giving protection from UV rays. It’s very light on the skin and it doesn’t feel like a plastic wrap has been applied to my face. I don’t get sun burned and my skin doesn’t peel or get scaly. I especially love that it doesn’t have harmful ingredients. Thanks for making it!

    I love Botanic Organic! It is so fresh that when I put it on my face I feel good right away knowing that they only put the freshest and most natural ingredients in them. My favorite product (during day & night) is the Cucumber hydrating mist. After showering, I 'mist' my face and then apply the Pomegranate serum. I don't really feel like I need anything else on my face, however, with all the Californian sunshine here, I like to complete my daily ritual with the Daily Defense so that my face and neck are protected from all the intense sunshine. I love the Daily Defense. This is the first sunblock I've used that doesn't irritate my eyes!. All other sunscreens irritate my eyes, making them red and watery.

Lovely sun defense

Feels very soft goes on easily and absorbs readily. Smells a bit odd at first but that disapates quickly and it works very well.

Not enough Moisture

I purchased two samples, the Raspberry & Green Tea Moisturizer and the Pomegranate & Argan Oil Serum. When I applied the moisturizer, small dry flakes would immediately appear while rubbing it in. I don't recommend for people with dry skin. I exfoliate daily because I live in a dry, snowy area with long, harsh winters. I will keep the sample to try again in the humid summer.

Purchasing the full size product of the Pomegranate Serum! Loved it!

Hi Anne, sorry to hear that this product is not emollient enough for your dry skin. It's true that zinc oxide is a very dry ingredient and we try to strike a balance between making it too oily and heavy feeling and too drying for some skins. We have recently increased the oil content to this product but again, maybe not enough for our drier skinned customers. I would suggest applying it directly after applying your pomegranate serum since you're using that product. That might just be the ticket to making it emollient enough to work for you. :-)

Woo hoo! Reef friendly!!

I’m intrigued by this product, the newest I’ve started using (I’ve been a fan of Botanic Organic for almost two years). It is thicker than other face moisturizers I’ve used...but it contains zinc oxide instead of oxybenzone and the other SPF ingredients that destroy coral reefs (and OMG the other harmful effects on our bodies). So YAY for Botanic Organic, I’m a fan of this product.

We agree Maria. Zinc oxide is a much safer and ocean/reef friendly alternative to chemical sunscreens. It has the additional benefit of being a good skincare ingredient helping with inflammatory conditions that cause redness like acne.
