    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.

This product is special!

I have recently become aware of the dangers of sunscreen to our oceans' coral. If a sunscreen can kill coral, should we be putting it on our skin? I think not!

I started looking for a natural sunscreen for my highly sensitive skin and a friend recommended this product. It is absolutely fantastic! Light, moisturizing, natural and it provides protection from the sun's strongest rays. I used this in Aspen, CO for 3 weeks and never got sunburn. This is my new sunscreen!

I love Botanic Organic!

I have combination skin, it's super dry in places yet I'm still breaking out all over place. All the other moisturizers I use make me break out, botanic organic products are THE ONLY thing I've found that help me keep moisturized but also prevent more breakouts. I've even tried using Keihls! It just dried out my skin. Something about the plant-based treatments just feel oh so good. No chemicals to irritate the skin. Who knows what you're reacting to!

I like it

Most of the sunscreens I've tried can feel somewhat thick or paste like, take some time to massage into the skin and leave a subtle white cast and/or sheen, not this one. It's lightweight, moisturizing and protecting. It's pale pink in color, thinner in texture like lotion, absorbs quickly and leaves a natural matte finish. It smells like sunscreen but with a hint of floral undertones. I find a pea size amount is all I need. I have problematic skin and I do believe this helps to soothe my active break outs.

Hi Donika, thanks for your review. You're right in sensing that this moisturizer with zinc oxide might help to calm your breakouts. Zinc oxide has mild astringent and antiseptic properties making it particularly helpful for acne. I would however advise that if you're using it for its sunblock properties that you use more than a pea sized amount. With zinc oxide acting as a barrier sunblock, how much you use is directly related to how well it blocks sun's rays. :-)

Actually Works

I am a fair-skinned lady and was a little skeptical about a natural sunscreen giving me the protection I need. However, after a day at an amusement park sweating and getting splashed my skin was just as healthy and happy as ever. My only gripe is that it is a little think, so you need to take a moment and be sure to rub it all in before you walk out the door.

Hi Madeleine, thanks for your review. I have a couple of suggestions that might help with the thickness of the Daily Defense moisturizer. One is to moisten your hands with water before applying. It will help it to slip on a little more easily. A second suggestion would be if you use our Pomegranate & Argan Antioxidant Serum, to apply your Daily Defense moisturizer to your skin immediately after applying your serum. It goes on beautifully this way and gives you the added protection and benefits of the serum itself. Hope this helps. :-)
