Hard to find mosturisers with natural SPF so was pleased to find this. It does have a matt finish, absorbs well and it smells nice. However, halfway throught the day powdery patches appear - not attractive. Also very disappointed product only lasts 3 months!!! This is not mentioned on the product details and I don't think I would have invested in this product had I realised it would need replacing so soon. This effectively doubles or quadruples the annual cost compared to previous mosturisers I have had, (which have lasted six months to a year).
