I've developed skin sensitivity to chemical sunblock (oxybenzone, avobenzone) so must use products containing only physical/mineral sunblock, such as the zinc oxide used in Angelina's Day Cream. I use this daily and have had no problems with skin irritation.
Nourishing Herbal Day Cream
Description: Now one of our best sellers, Angelina originally developed this protective facial moisturizing cream for her husband, Andy, who's now a self-declared "addict". It is hydrating, soothing, thick and rich and contains natural mineral sunscreen (it's about SPF 15). Both men and women enjoy the light scent of this antioxidant-rich formula. It's like a trip to the day spa, the health food store and yoga center all in one little jar! We use it daily and especially before heading out into the mountains to protect our faces from sun and wind damage.

Such a great product that quickly absorbs and nourishes the skin. It leaves your face refreshed rather than shiny or greasy! A great value for the quality and quantity of this facial cream
Five out of five. I'm totally in love with this product... just WOW!
love this cream. smells amazing and softens and soothes.
I love this product. I have ordered it twice now and the color seems a little different than before, but with a natural product it should be expected. This is my "go -to" moisturizer, it has UVA protection and really moisturizes my face without clogging my pores or irritating my crazy sensitive skin. My dermatologist even gave it a big thumbs up for it's ingredient list!!
I was in Bend for a family reunion, and my niece said, "let me show you this store". I thought you were expensive at first, until I tried your products. I spent over a $100.00, so I received a couple extra little gifts...great customer service! I am telling all my friends about your products, because I really love them.
I like this product and Angelina's philosophy. My only complaint is the thick paste like consistency makes it difficult to apply to the skin. However, the quality of the product and pricing makes it an excellent value. I enjoy many other products of Angelina's and would rate those all 5 stars. This is the only one that is more difficult to use.
