Hello,
I need help finding a moisturizer, without sunscreen, for my teen son, 14 years old. He has normal to dry skin with an occasional breakout. Mostly a few blackheads in the T zone area.
He does a good job of washing his face. Uses deep pore cleanser and cross training sunscreen.
I just ordered him lip balm and eye cream (dark circles hereditary).
Please help me decide on a moisturizer for him that won't be too strong or too heavy. I'm hoping that he will add moisturizing into his routine in am and pm. I have tried with other products I have but he complains about the smells. I assume this is because those products are more for women?? Maybe a men's product, smell wouldn't bother him??
Thank you, I appreciate you taking time to help me with this ;)

Can you put this on your lips as well as your face?
A shopper on Sep 28, 2013
Best Answer: Yes. I put cross-terrain on my lips every time I put it on my face. I use it every week when golfing. Best sun protector for sport.

How well does this work at blocking wind (like skiing) and can you use it as a Chapstick on your lips?
A shopper on Dec 8, 2013
Best Answer: Cross Terrain has been great for skiing and hiking in CO and kayaking in TX. I have been happy w sun and wind protection. It has a very mild natural smell and taste, and works fine for me on lips, nose, ears.

Could this also work as aftershave?
A shopper on Sep 6, 2013
Best Answer: I would NOT use this application as an after-shave.
It's wonderful as a stay-on sun screen; in fact, the best I have ever used in terms of being water and sweat proof and lasting strength.
It's too thick, and gooey and might clog pores as an after-shave.
And it will make your face look shiny.
My favorite after-shave is natural aloe vera gel.

I'm a surfer and in search for good sunblock that will stay put <3-4 hrs in the ocean. Would you recommend this product? Most of the reviews I've read so far are people who have used this skiing or running, any swimmers/ surfers?
A shopper on May 1, 2013
Best Answer: I'm sorry, but I wear it running . It's not working well for me because the sunscreen is rather thick and greesy so it builds-up on your sun- glasses .
I would think it would really work well for swimmers or surfers .

I'm out on the sun for at least 30 min daily, which protector would be better for me Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+ or Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF 50 ?

Best Answer: The Facial Fuel is lighter than the Cross Terrain, so if you have oily skin I'd go with the former. The Cross Terrain is pretty heavy (almost waxy) but it works extremely well for a long day outdoors when you are sweating and/or in the water often.

Could it be used as an aftershave?
I'm out on the sun quite often and feel like I need sunscreen but don't want to use two different products, one sunscreen and one aftershave, can this work as both?
AlEast on Sep 6, 2013
Best Answer: This cross terrain face protector is an excellent product - one of my favorites. Goes on smoothly and evenly. But for aftershave, I prefer the calming, cooling effect of moisturizer. If opt for the Facial Fuel moisturizer with SPF15 sunscreen instead.

I have sensitive skin, and tend to break out easily. I want to use this for long runs during the winter, but am afraid of how my skin my react to it. Anyone have the issue?
A shopper on Oct 1, 2012
Best Answer: I bought this for my brother. He has normal skin and is outdoors a lot.
He has had no breakouts, because when he wears it, his skin is so dry I don't think it matters. For normal skin I think it is fine.
Hope this helps.

Does this product sting the eyes? Lots of good sunscreens do!
A shopper on Aug 26, 2014
Best Answer: My husband uses this product in the winter for skiing and in the summer for golf. Most sunscreens give him a rash. This product prevents sunburn, never stings his eyes, and lasts a really long time.

Best Answer: I'm exactly like you. I have been using the Cross-Terrain UV Face Protector SPF50 and it while it's a wax like substance, when you apply it, it does not feel greasy and it lasts ALL day! I'm a long course triathlete and I apply it once and then forget it. I use it on face, ear and neck. SUPER product, highly recommend it!

what is the UVA rating on this product? -Cross-terrain spf 50
A shopper on Apr 21, 2012
Best Answer: Not sure, it doesn't have a rating on the tub. I just looked, sorry. But I can tell you this stuff really works. I am an electrician and do a fair amount of outside work. When I know I am working outside I put it on don't worry about being in the sun ALL day long. Even with other sun blocks I would have to re-apply and still come home with mild red skin. Not to mention stinging sweat in my eyes. Since I've been using the cross terrain I have had NO sun burns or stinging eyes. Love this stuff. I am now putting it my 3 year old daughter who would come home from preschool with sunburn. Not any more and she doesn't complain about stinging eyes.

Does this Cross-Terrain product contain Oxybenzone?
Unfortunately your Super Fluid does...
I'm looking for a good water-resistent product w/out Oxybenzone.
Thanks
Brent
Brent Cottong on Jul 13, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, my tub states "Oxybenzone 5%" in the active ingredients.

is it okay to use although i am a girl?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2012
Best Answer: Actually, I used a different product than the one you're asking about. But I would say, is a face protecting product gender-specific? And I don't know the answer to that, but would add, try to get a list of ingredients of the product you're wanting; Google each one; and I'd say if none of the ingredients are gender-specific (e.g., one that causes beard growth) then I don't see the harm in using it. Too, call your nearest Neiman Marcus store or Kiehl's store and ask them. The Kiehl's website lists all their locations. Good luck.
