Beware the label "fair"

2

I purchased this in the shade "fair." Warning: by "fair", this product really means, "alabaster pale, paper white." Purchase "fair" in this product only if your complexion is gothic white. I will need to re-purchase this in the middle shade. Colorescience really needs to re-label the shade range of this product. I consider myself "fair," in that I am not medium-toned, not olive-skinned. I am on the lighter side of the shade range in most products. My constant issue with sunscreens is that they are too orange or too dark. One youtube video reviewer I watched said that she used this product in the middle shade because her face was tanner due to the summer season, so I figured, ok, I am definitely not tanning my face so I'll purchase the fair shade. Which was a mistake and now I have to bother with returning it.

The best sunscreen on the market

5

This is a general review for color science as a brand whether you like this sunscreen or another type. I have always always always struggled with sunscreen making me break out. ColorScience has never done that to me, it’s smooth, light weight, and not grossly oily on your face, you barely noticed you have it on. I love all color science products.

Good but needs more shades/undertones!

4

This is more full coverage than the original sunforgettable and overall a good product but the fair shade is not a match for me. It has a yellow undertone but my skin has pink undertones. The original is actually a better match for me since it has pink undertones. But if you've tried the original and want something that gives more coverage it's worth a try.

Superb Sunscreen

5

My absolute favorite sunscreen for the face. For context, I am half Asian and have pale and sensitive skin. This sunscreen does not irritate my skin at all, is not too oily, and not too drying (even some Elta sunscreens can be a bit drying on my face once they dry). The “fair” color option is beautiful and natural looking on my skin. It’s the ONLY tinted sunscreen I’ve tried that doesn’t make my look even slightly yellow or orange. It leaves a slightly luminous look to my skin - not oily, but more like a very healthy and moisturized skin. My dermatologist even complimented my skin the day I arrived with this on and said to “keep doing what I’m doing.” I’m also still amazed this is a 100% mineral sunscreen.

Thick & cakey - stick with regular Sunforgettable sunscreens

1

The Flex version of sunforgettable sunscreen is disappointing.   As others have commented, it’s thick & very hard to blend.  I can feel it “sitting” on top of my skin, doesn’t absorb well - looks too cakey.  The regular, bronze & glow sunforgettable sunscreens are my absolute holy grail favorites, stick with those over the Flex.   I have been mixing Flex with the glow version which has helped me use bottle up.  Will not repurchase Flex.

On my 3rd bottle

5

Absolutely love this sunscreen! It is so rare to find a tinted sunscreen in more than one shade and most universal shades are too dark and orange for my skin tone. I wear this like a light foundation for everyday use. It comes out of the bottle white and magically turns tinted as you rub it in. The color of the cap is supposed to indicate the shade but it’d be nice if they added the name of the shade to the bottle somewhere.

Replaced my foundation

5

I've used 3 bottles of this stuff so far. I use it in place of my foundation because the coverage is decent. I'm very acne prone, and this doesn't break my skin out any more than normal. It sits on the skin really nicely and is not cakey or uncomfortable. It really does 'flex' to match my skin.

Thick and Cakey

1

I had high hopes for this product, but was very disappointed. This sunscreen is very thick and difficult to blend in. It looks like a mask on the face instead of blending into the skin. It does give good coverage, but at the cost of emphasizing skin texture. I also found that it dried out my skin which irritated my rosacea prone skin. You really can’t reapply this sunscreen without it being a goopy mess. The bursting pigments gimmick is annoying because you have to rub a lot to get it to work. If you have fair skin, just go for the classic. it’s much easier to use and you can actually apply the full amount without looking like you drowned yourself in foundation.

Like it but dont love it

3

I wish it wasn’t too shiny on the skin. I feel like light bulb when I wear it. Feels nice in the skin but my only complain is the way it makes me look. I love. A glowy look but it’s way to shiny

At last, this one is the end of my facial sunscreen search

5

I have spent the last year trying out every sunscreen on the market. The first time I used this over serum and moisturizer I thought it did not dry down enough. So I put it in a drawer for a few weeks. Then recently I tried it as the next step over my Vitamin C serum and DRMTLGY Needleless serum. The result was awesome. Yes, it takes 20 min or so to dry down, but it does dry down. It gives great coverage so that I need no foundation. It makes my skin look amazing - healthy with a very slight glow. I'm trying to simplify my cosmetics life by using products that do double duty. This one eliminates the need for foundation. The fact that it is PA++++ and also protects from blue light from my computer screen is another positive. This will simplify my life. I am 64, fair skin, cool tone, and use the Fair shade of the Flex sunscreen.
