Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure Not sure what happened to this lotion. Apparently it has been reformulated. It is now really thick and has an unfamiliar odor. Must be a preservative or something. I used this product for 35 years. No more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PHELITYL DAY LOTION SPF 15 This product has changed and not for the better. It's no longer a lotion but still comes in a bottle. It was a very fine product when it was actually a lotion. Perhaps repackaging into a cream type of container would work better as it is hard to get out of the bottle. Disappointing for such a fine product line. I would not recommend this particular product at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Change is not always good I've been using these products since I was twenty five years old. This lotion was thicker and coated the skin infusing it with emollients, made my skin softer. Since they added the SPF it is watery and evaporates as I am applying it. It lost its effectiveness. Dr. Laszlos formulas have been changed, why? This is so disappointing. Like I lost a friend...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Day Cream/Lotion I was using the Firmarine Night Cream as my day and night moisturizer which I loved. I decided to give the Phelityl Day Lotion a try and I am enjoying it greatly. It is light and sinks right into my skin. It doesn’t leave skin looking shiny even if I add an additional sunscreen on top of it. Provides an excellent amount of moisture and benefit for my skin during the day. I like that it comes in a bottle. Even though it is thick it comes with an application “spoon” to remove the product from the bottle (very easy). I am so glad I have found Laszlo! My skin has never looked better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user I have used Erno Laszlo products since the 1970s. The moisturizer keeps my skin soft and pliant. As I have very sensitive skin I really feel the difference if I mis and receive compliments on my lack of wrinkles and good skin. I am 81 years old and people say I look in my early 60s. I like to think it is because I have used EL products successfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Outstanding Product This lotion is the best I have ever used. It leaves my skin soft, protected and younger feeling. My small lines seem to disappear after it is applied. The only suggestion I could make that would improve the experience of using this product is, please put it in a container with a much larger opening. It is extremely difficult to get the lotion out because of its consistency. I am using a new bottle so heaven knows what it will be like as I use it down and the bottle is not full.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this but... I love the day lotion and will always purchase it, however PLEASE make a new top or container for the lotion. The new spoon included is better to scoop it out, but there is so much remaining on the bottom and sides of the bottle that I've had to cut off the top to get it all. Have you ever considered putting the lotion in a jar or pump bottle? Thanks for considering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product but hard to get out of the bottle I love this product, but the company really needs to do some work on the packaging. It is hard to get it out from the bottle, especially when there isn't not much left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Lazlo is the most amazing product out on the market!! My mother has used Lazlo for 45 years and has younger looking skin than most of my friends (at age 36!). She started me on Lazlo at age 12, and I have been using it now for 24 years and still love it. My daughter just had her 10th birthday, and I have started her on the Lazlo daily routine. This line of product will continue to be in my family for generations to come! Thank you Lazlo for our beautiful, healthy skin!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All-time favorite... Having used Laszlo products for 40+ years, this product is a staple. It makes my shake-it much smoother going on. Now, if you would just bring back daytime shake-it, my life would again be complete. I am on my last bottle...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad bottle I love the product, but will not order again because it is so difficult to apply from bottle-I do not care for the plastic application tool given-I liked the old bottle-flip top open-much easier to apply product. Realize your new formula is thicker, but couldn't you just thin it again & go back to the flip too?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I miss the non spf formula This is a good moisturizer that absorbs quickly doesn’t leave face sticky or greasy, the last of the original ph line that made laszlo famous. I wish you’d bring back the non spf formula as well -

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes a long way Date of review: 1/20/13 As I'm nearing my mid-30s, I noticed changes in my skin so I decided to stop being cheap and really look for good skin products. I got the EL line through samples and I love it. My skin just seemed to drink the stuff! The day lotion is the same. It doesn't feel greasy at all and I only need to use a small amount. After going through my ritual, my skin feel so fresh and clean even if I put powder and make-up on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Just Works With semi-oily skin I long thought (wrong) that I didn't need a moisturizer. When my Erno consultant deftly and respectfully corrected me, I went all in for the Phelityl Lotion. Turns out, I did need the moisture, and my skin now looks better than ever. Smoother. Less tired. Happier. Its the perfect weight for under makeup or with no makeup. Not greasy or gooey, it drinks in to my skin perfectly. Love it, and can't do without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Face Thanked Me! I've been using Erno Laszlo for 35 years. In the past year, I switch foundation to a product that claimed moisturizer and sunscreen was in their product. I stopped using Phelityl Day Lotion daily. I began to notice lines and dry patches on my face. After applying the lotion, my face wasn't so dry. Tried it again the next day. That's when I ordered my regiment again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Prefer the SPF Formula I’m almost 52. Started using EL when I was 12 years old. I stopped using EL about 6 years ago to try La Prairie because my mother uses it and she convinced me because I was getting older I needed more collagen products however besides LPs original eye cream I never saw a difference and was spending 2-3 times the money. Matter of fact I began to see my pores enlarge around my noses and cheeks. I switched back to EL a year ago and my skin is looking better than ever. I completely understand everyone’s comments regarding the formula of the no SPF and the one here. There is a difference between the two, the one with no SPF is thinner and pours from bottle easily however even when EL had both available I always purchased the SPF because I believe the SPF is important to have on my skin. Yes it is thicker and a little harder to get out of bottle but once one learns how to get it out of bottle which I just gently squeeze the bottle to put amount on my hand it’s not an issue at least not for me. I also feel it gives more moisture to my face than the one without SPF and I will always purchase the SPF even if EL brings back the other. What I would like to see come back on the market is the original eye cream that EL developed 30 years old. It was fabulous!!! I recently convinced my 15 year old to get on EL’s seamud regimen (she thought because EL has been around forever it was for older people haha) and she has seen a major difference in her skin!!! Been an Erno Lazlo user for 40 years, I’m back and never switching again! Thank you EL for your amazing products. Cheri B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to day lotion I understand the complaints about how this lotion is thicker than it used to be, but in fact, I find that a smaller amount covers my face and neck. I also combine a bit with my foundation for a very natural look. At the end of the bottle I might add a few drops of bottled water to make it easier to access, but overall I like the thicker lotion better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Astonishing extraordinary results! This cream provided me with the suppleness, luminosity, youthful looking skin and the protection that I was looking for in mosturizer. In addition, it feels great under your makeup which is a great plus. It's use is excellent both in hot and cold climates. You will never regret making this product part of your daily regimen. It's an excellent product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is this meant to replace phelityl day cream? Laszlo seems to be trying to fill the gap left when they stopped offering Phelityl (or was it Hydraphyl?) day cream. This lotion is much thicker than the previous Phelityl lotion, but it seems silly to package it in a bottle rather than a jar. But it's better than nothing, so I give it 4 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everday and every season I have used this lotion as an everyday part of my ritual for over 20 years. Our southwestern climate is both dry and sunny. A light non greasy lotion that provides the first layer of sun protection is essential. This product fills both requirements with ease. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing and Predictable I have been a "Laszlo Baby" for more years than I care to remember. All of the products are simply wonderful. The moisturizer is light but very effective, I am not sure I could or want to live without it! The quality never varies, it is always perfect. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daily go to Phelityl Day Lotion is so light and moisturizing I would never start my daily routine without it. The SPF 15 is just another bonus. I would like the bottle to be revised for easier use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not life changing, but not disturbing either I miss R.E.M. spf 30 and this didn’t compare. Perhaps perfect for someone looking for a lightweight moisturizer with no alteration to the skins current state

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just right I've used for many, many years and it provides just the right moisture for my skin. I do miss having Shake up and Powder to use with it. The products I have tried to replace Erno's discontinued products don't work as well . Very glad to still have the Phelityl Day Lotion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t absorb I love Erno Laszlo and I wanted so badly to like this lotion but it feels like it sits on top of my skin and doesn’t absorb. I feel like my face is dirty after I apply it. I’ve actually purchased this twice over the years wanting it to work but it’s still a no go.

Very longtime user of EL products but in my senior years have had a hard time finding an adequate daytime moisturizer. Hydraphel Intensive Night Cream & Ocuphel Emollient Eye Cream are outstanding (please don't change them). Will this product work for me

Asked by: Sandra
I'm 70, live in Arizona, and have been using Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15 for several years. I love and use it faithfully everyday because I love how my skin feels - never gets dry or oily during the day and protects me from the sun! I told someone today that I was 70, and she couldn't believe it - she said "you look like you are 57; your skin looks great". If you are satisfied with the other EL products you are using, you will be very satisfied with this daytime moisturizer.

I used REM moisturizer for 45+ years. When I went to purchase some, it did not show. This is the second item you dropped that was perfect for my skin - tinted treatment left my skin glowing. REM is ok, not great. Now what do I use?

is there something i can do to make this lotion more like a lotion, so i can get it out of the bottle? add water?

Asked by: lm63
Erno Laszlo needs to redesign the bottle so the top sides are curved. A lot of product is wasted because you can't get it out of the current container. To try and get as much out as possible, I stand the bottle upside down at night so I can use it in the morning. That helps, but there is still a lot of wasted product left inside. PLEASE redesign the bottle.

is this for daytime? i am confused about the comments and description! If, it had UV protection, i am assuming it is for day wear...

Asked by: steph
Yes, this is primarily for daytime.  I have been using it for 25+ years and it is wonderful.  Use after your toner and before the makeup.
