'Literally perfect': Shoppers can't get enough of this weightless SPF moisturizer — it's over 40% off

Skin feeling a little lizard-y after a long, dry winter? Ours, too — and not only that, we're also looking at keeping our tender flesh shielded from the prolonged sun exposure of summer, as well as trying to turn back the hands of time when it comes to the visible signs of aging. Is there a way to do all of this without weighing the skin down with a ton of lotions and potions? Well, lucky for both you and us, we've found one product that quenches, protects and enhances skin all in one: the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Moisturizer, on sale now at Amazon for just $32 (down from $55), a gorgeous over-40% off.

With SPF 45 on deck to protect against sun damage and skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides and Pentavitin in the mix, this weightless moisturizer might be just what you need for happier, more hydrated skin.

This cream is currently marked down by over 40% at Amazon, making it a great deal for keeping your skin quenched as we head into the summer months. Our Senior Beauty Editor Jennifer Romolini wrote of the sale, "I wouldn't normally shell out $55 for a moisturizer, but at $32, this seriously hydrating/dewy finish cream is worth a try" — and we have to agree!

The Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Moisturizer packs a lot of power into its slim physique — it's a moisturizer, sunscreen and anti-aging cream all in one! Just as its name suggests, the moisturizer lightly envelops skin in a "liquid cloud of fluffy-light moisture," with an innovative formula that starts off as a cream and absorbs down to a water-like invisible finish, leaving no sheen, heaviness or discoloration behind. The cream provides skin with up to 72 hours of soft, weightless hydration, and with SPF 45 on deck, you can rest assured that your most sensitive flesh will be protected against UVA and UVB rays while also staying quenched throughout any sun exposure, making it "ideal for everyday use," as Romolini attests.

And somehow, the folks at PTR found room to pack more benefits into this formula! They come in the ingredients, which include skin care favorite hyaluronic acid to draw in essential hydration; Pentavitin, which helps extend that hydration for up to 72 hours (even after cleansing!); 5% SunBoost ATB to, well, boost sun protection; and ceramides and ProHyal+ to help reduce visible signs of aging on the skin. Once the formula dries down, it'll be invisible to the eye and to the touch, and yet will leave skin feeling soft, plump and moisturized for quite a while afterward — along with protecting from sun damage (of course).

The Water Drench Cloud Moisturizer has tons of fans across the internet, with Amazon shoppers in particular awarding it an average 4.5-out-of-5-star rating.

"This is honestly the best moisturizer I’ve used," raved one reviewer. "It’s also perfect under my makeup. ... And, TBH, it’s so hydrating. It’s literally perfect for my dry skin, and the fact that it has ceramides in it is awesome!!!"

If you're still looking for the perfect facial sunscreen, shoppers say this one is the one to beat: "This is my favorite for daily non-greasy sunscreen. I have tried other popular brands for daily sunscreen and I keep going back to this," shared one. Another added, "Hands down the best sunscreen I’ve ever tried. So smooth it feels like a moisturizer and, best of all, it doesn’t leave that white film on your face like most other sunscreens."

Even mature users notice a huge difference after incorporating the moisturizer into their routine. "At 56 I am using this product over an AHA gel, then tinted moisturizer for morning. It has been an epic transformation in routine," gushed a shopper. "The only thing that worked before it were face oils and heavy moisturizers that just left me feeling greasy. ... I was having crepey skin issues and turkey neck. [Now,] my skin looks amazing!"

There aren't a ton of detractors for this moisturizer, but it does have its critiques. "I like the product but the pump quit working," wrote one reviewer. Another writer agreed: "This comes in a weird container with a pump top. I feel like I can’t get everything out of it, so it’s a waste."

Also important is remembering to test any skin care product before use — we suggest using a small patch of your inner-arm skin! "I'm sure this product is fine; it just didn't work for me. I had a reaction to it and have given it to my niece who absolutely loves this. I have sensitive skin is all," reasoned one user.

This cream-to-water moisturizer is a hydrator, sunscreen and anti-aging product all in one — talk about a triple threat!
