Daily facial moisturizer with SPF

I love this SPF product. I was looking for a face moisturizer with SPF in it that didn’t create a white cast or break my skin out. What I found is a product that’s as hydrating or moisturizing as a facial lotion but with added benefits of SPF. I go nuts over protecting my skin since I’m so pale and burn so easily and this is the perfect face lotion! It layers perfectly under my makeup but helps PROTECT my skin which helps with preventing the aging effects the sun can have on our skin. It also smells like a dream and feels so silky on the skin! I LOVE this. Even just using at the beach on my face by itself is a dream! It’s my favorite when someone asks me if I have a face SPF I can lend them at the beach and I get to show off this cute dreamy product!

The best sunscreen!

This is an improved version of the much-loved original Malu formula in my opinion. The former version was so thick (which was wonderful for dry winter skin) that you couldn’t suction out the bottom 1/5 with the pump. It was so frustrating! This new formula has a thinner consistency, but still moisturizes nicely, has a slightly weaker scent (by no means a bad thing, although I loved the original scent so much), and soaks in with no white cast even better than the original. I have yet to reach the bottom of my bottle, so I am not 100% certain the pump problem is fixed, but I have high hopes and think it will no longer be an issue! I will report back if I am wrong.

I recommend this product


I loved the original formulation. It was my number one everyday moisturizer. It was super emollient and moisturizing without leaving a white cast. Fantastic for my dry, light-medium skin. They reformulated to remove palm oil and make it more sustainable, which I very much support (save the orangutans!). That said, the new formulation leaves something to be desired. It is a much thinner cream so I have to use another moisturizer underneath. I also find myself using a lot more of this thinner cream product than I did previously with the heavier, more emollient original formulation as I want to be sure I am getting sufficient SPF on my face. It makes me a little dubious that it is still SPF 30 given how lightweight it is and how quickly it seems to disappear, which might actually be a selling point for others lol

Hi Cece, Thank you so much for this honest review. This is a reformulated version of Malu. We love hearing your comparison to the past formula. Malu is made and thoroughly tested for its SPF 30 claim. It definitely needs to pass this test, so we feel confident it is still an SPF 30. We will be sure to pass this feedback to Honua. We also like adding just a drop of face oil to this formula to make it a litte more moisturizing, just as an option. It still smells and performs the same. Thank you again.
