Feels nice, absorbs nice!

5

Tried this on my combination skin & it’s great. Moisturizing (not greasy!!) and helps even my skin tone. My one comment is on white cast: two solutions work for me… 1) rub in well if applying after washing (best for maximum protection). 2) if toning + serum before applying, it absorbs easier & no need to worry about the cast.   Love EltaMD products!

Best Mineral Sunscreen So Far...

4

Though I will say that on my fair/dry skin there is still a white cast issue. Also can burn a tiny bit around my nose line sometimes. Having said that, it's the best I've found so far in the non-tinted mineral sunscreen hunt!

Great Sunscreen

5

I really like this sunscreen. It is non-greasy and does not leave a white cast. It helps with my hyperpigmentation and acne. I really enjoy it and recommend it.

Almost Perfect Sunscreen

4

I really enjoy this formula but I have a few caveats with it. I find it to be gentle and nonirritating on my dry, sensitive skin. The ginger root extract does tingle when first applied but the sensation subsides. It is a fragrance-free formula which I really like (you can kind of smell the ginger root extract at first but it is not noticeable). When reading the reviews of this SPF, I noticed many people mentioning the white cast. I have a lightly pigmented skin tone so I decided to purchase the tinted version in case I needed to mix the two together. It was quite an investment, but I am satisfied with the way the sunscreen looks mixed together. The regular version alone creates too much of a white cast on my complexion. But when used in conjunction with the Tinted version, I find it to look more natural (3 pumps tinted and 1 pump regular covers my face, neck, and hands). When first applied, it does look a little shiny but since my skin is so dry the shininess does not last long and I normally apply the EltaMD Face & Body lotion on top. I do not use foundation or other makeup so I am unsure of how it may react to other products. But in my experience, the texture and application is great and a little product goes a long way. I appreciate this SPF doesn't have Hyaluronic Acid and I think it is a great option for people with sensitivities.

Expected Better from EltaMD

2

I wanted to love this. I am long-time EltaMD UV Shield user. When I saw this product, I thought the addition of the skin care elements would make it even better. Nope. It is greasy, very white on the skin, and no matter how careful I am with application it always - and I mean ALWAYS...Every. Single. Time. - migrates to my eyes. It never absorbs or sets up on my skin. So, I'm back to the regular UV Shield products with a little moisturizer underneath. I am giving it two stars instead of 1 because it is mostly unscented and it did not irritate my skin.

No skin reaction/White Cast

3

I'm leaving a 3 star review. The formula was great, my skin did't have a bad reaction or a break out. Just the harshness of the white cast has this review at 3 stars. I already have very fair skin and the white cast made me look like a ghost. I like the other formulas within ELTA MD, this one was just not for me.

Great daily sunscreen

4

While this is not my favorite Elta sunscreen, I do use it daily because of its physical sunscreen ingredients. I get hyperpigmentation and brown spots very easily and need a physical sunscreen to prevent further darkening. This sunscreen leaves a white cast, but it can be rubbed in to help that. I like the consistency the most about this, it's light and makes my skin glow. Until I'm able to find a purely physical sunscreen without a white cast, I'll use this daily. On another note, I'd really wish they got rid of this type of packaging a pump. It never works so I have to twist the whole top off to use it every day.

Can be drying but works

4

Definitely has a white cast but is unavoidable without using chemical sunscreen so I don't mind. This product can be a little drying throughout the day.

I like the normal elta more

3

I think I purchased this on accident, but I am very loyal to the original and more popular elta formula. this one felt really thick and did leave a cast. not great for everyday use

excellent application

5

this sunscreen is fully unscented, it has no chemical masking scent. it will not leave a white cast if applied properly. the texture is thin and lotion-like. it feels hydrating, yet leaves you with a close-to-matte finish.
