Another EltaMD Winner

5

I'm a huge EltaMD fan. I use EltaMD physical sunscreen every day. I recommend it and Dermstore to all my clients. UV Clear Broad Spectrum and UV Phyical Broad Spectrum 41 Tinted have been my all time favorites. I was excited to see this new sunscreen would combine treatment and sunscreen. I apply to a clean dry face and allow it to absorb before adding any make up. It goes on smoothly with no pilling. A very very minor white cast disappears quickly and only my natural skin tone is visible. I love that I never have a greasy look with my chosen EltaMD sunscreens. I need to use it longer to see if there are any bonus skin improvements. I LOVE the new packaging too! The soft pump container is great. I always feel confident recommending a EltaMD sunscreen.

There are better Elta MD sunscreen options

2

I hate to leave this review but need to warn others to stay away from this sunscreen. Leaves a terrible whitecast no matter how much blending, and the cast does not go away after the 20 mins that I allow it to set before makeup. Collects in eyebrows, makes my oily skin look and feel dry, and does not work under makeup like so many other Elta MD sunscreens that are top notch. Perhaps the tinted version works better but I'll stick with my Elta MD UV Elements tinted.

Leaves white cast

2

Great lecture, and it does not dry the skin. However, it leaves a very, very noticeable white cast. Very disappointing. Will have to mix with my UV Sport in order to use it up.

Leaves white cast

3

I wanted to love this product as much as I love all of the other EltaMD products I have tried but sadly I did not. This left a white cast to my skin no matter how much I attempted to rub the product in. My skin is very dry and will occasionally have dry patches. This just made the dry patches stand out even more thanks to the white shadow they now had. I also feel that this product did not melt into my skin but would "drag" around instead. I wish this had worked for me because on paper it is the perfect product. Sadly I will be returning.

Feels nice, looks awful

1

I have been a diehard user of the EltaMD UV Clear Broad Spectrum and Daily Broad Spectrum sunscreens. I have used them for around 5 years and absolutely love how they hydrate and protect. Given winter is upon us, I ordered the EltaMD Restore and am severely disappointed. It feels very nice on the skin, but looks awful. - It does not spread well - It leaves white streaks and collects in white chunks anywhere it touches dry skin. - Leaves an overall white cast on the skin - and I'm quite fair skinned, so cannot imagine trying it on a darker complexion. - It forms a hardened plug in the pump nozzle every day - If you try to layer this over a serum or vitamin c, it will ball up I will not buy this again and will go back to the traditional formulas. Really unfortunate that this is a $35+ bottle.

Great texture, quite white

4

I ordered this product recently, and have only used it one day so far. I will update my review should my opinion change, or if it causes me to break out. I love the texture of the product, as it goes on smoothly. This is rare for a physical sunscreen, and I hate to have to tug on my skin during application. It always dries to a nice satin finish. Not too oily, not too dry. My only concern thus far, is that the sunscreen appears very white on the skin, even on my very fair skin. It doesn't look bad per say, but it does get stuck in my hair line. I used 2 pumps for my face and neck, which I did not feel was too much. I will try using less tomorrow and see if I have the same issue, but I don't want to use too little and miss out on the sun protection. My main concern with this is on reapplication. I reapplied in the afternoon, and the product went on very smooth which was really nice. However, now my skin is very very white. I personally like a porcelain look, but it now looks quite different than my hands. I have not yet decided if this is a big enough issue to prevent repurchase, as I like almost everything else about it. I will try slightly less product and better blending around my hairline.
