my favorite daytime moisturizer 
I have mostly oily, aging (45 years) skin, and I absolutely love this moisturizer. Perfect balance of moisturizing without being too heavy.

I used Energizing Pomegranite Moisturizer for many years. I loved it. It provided the perfect amount of moisture, was not heavy or oily but kept my skin looking hydrated all day long. It aborbed into my skin rather than sitting on top. The best part was how it gave my skin this beautiful, subtle glow. I tried the Balancing Moisturizer as a replacement and am extremely disappointed. Balancing leaves a white, chalky film on my face, like you would get from using a plain old sunscreen. I will not buy this again. I'm sure the Sheer Lusture moisturizer gives a nice glow like Pomegranite did, but I use many products in my skin care regimine and just can't add a $70 moisturizer to my already expensive arsenal. PLEASE BRING BACK ENERGIZING POMEGRANITE!!!!!

Good hydration 
I was looking for a new product that provided a bit more hydration than I had previously needed and found this product to be what I was looking for. Appreciate the SPF. Would give 5 stars if murad would remove known parabens and pthalates to go along with their wonderful use of effective natural ingredients.

Balancing, lightweight, and yummy smelling--perfect, except maybe not in summer! 
I am in my mid-twenties and still deal with breakouts--usually exercise induced from a lot of sweating when I practice hot yoga and moderate running. In addition, I live in a harsh environment at high altitude with a lot of sun, wind, and dryness, which makes treating it difficult.

I use all of the other Vitalic products in my daily skincare regimen and this is a great, lightweight moisturizer that really seems to match the other products in its line. However, for being a moisturizer that is supposed to balance oily and dry zones I don't always find it performs this task so well. The Vitalic line is supposed to balance the T-zone part of your face, and overall it does accomplish this. This moisturizer seems to show up shiny on already-slightly-shiny parts of the face like forehead and nose. I know it is the moisturizer itself, because my skin is not really overall oily and the shine isn't there before applying this one. This moisturizer works very well in fall and winter for me, but in summer I switch it up occasionally with the Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 | PA++ from the acne line and find that one goes on more evenly on warmer days without the perma-shine.

Great for combination skin 
This is a wonderful, light-weight moisturizer. It leaves my skin hydrated and silky. Smells good too.
