Super by Dr Perricone Daylight Savings SPF 25 moisturiser review
The texture is a cream-fluid, and it has a light citrus fragrance and some mica in it to give a glow to the skin. I could live without the mica personally, but at least it isn't bismuth and it isn't too Twilight-y.
This applies extremely well for a physical sunscreen (the active ingredient is zinc oxide, although titanium dioxide appears further down the ingredients list too.) It doesn't whiten my skin at all and rubs in quickly, feeling almost weightless but leaving skin comfortably moisturised. I do find that by the end of the day on colder days my skin can feel a little dry, so like most physical sunscreens I'd say this is best for normal to combination skin unless you layer extra hydration underneath it for a drier skin. The moisturising base is likely to be too moisturising for an oily skin.
Super Daylight Savings cost £28.50 for 30ml, and I bought mine from Boots - it's only in the larger shops and online. I use 3 pumps each morning - one for face, one for neck and one for my decollete. I've used about half of the bottle in just over a month, so I'd estimate a bottle will last about two months using the amount I do each day.
There is also a tinted version: Super Sun Kissed SPF 25. Tali has reviewed this over at The Gloss Goss: The Gloss Goss Super Sun Kissed review.
