Smooth consistency

5

I'm really loving this SPF! For a mineral sunblock I'm very surprised by how smoothly it applies. White cast if any is very subtle compared to my previous mineral SPF from Is clinical. It's a lot more hydrating from my previous SPF as well. My favorite aspect of this SPF is that I've not noticed any pilling!

highly recommend

5

I've tried dozens of mineral spfs and this is the closest I've found to the perfect one. Most are either too tinted or leave too much of a white cast but this one leaves my skin looking pearlescent and radiant, but not in an overstated way. I have dry skin in the winter & oily skin in the summer and I can wear this throughout the year without issues. It's not greasy in my opinion and absorbs really well. I don't wear makeup so I can't say how it sits with foundation or other products, but I apply this a few minutes after my moisturizer in the morning and have never had any issues with pilling.

great daily spf!

5

i've been using this for 2+ years and it is definitely my holy grail spf. i don't wear makeup of any sort, plus i am very pale and fair, so this just gives me that healthy, dewy glow i need & a "barely-there" subtle natural look. the texture is almost whipped and has a nice mattifying feel, really easy to apply & sets in quickly. my only complaint is i wish it was a bit higher in SPF!

Greasy sunscreen

2

I received this sunscreen sample from an order with DermStore. I feel lucky to give it a try before I purchase it. The texture is very greasy. And it's hard to blend it evenly on your face.

Glowy and light

5

So nice! Always afraid of SPF because they're either sticky, heavy, or make my skin itchy. I do have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin which makes me so cautious. But this product, WOW. Lightweight and glowy -great under makeup.

Love this SPF

5

This is a great lightweight moisturizer with SPF protection! Seems white at first but soaks in after about 1 minute. Doesn't leave your skin tacky or sticky feeling like some SPFs. Also works well with my BB cream ! Great product at an affordable price.

My Favorite Product

This is my go-to moisturizer/sunscreen. The glow it provides looks natural, not like glitter.

Favorite Everyday SPF

1

I have acne prone skin. This does not make my skin oily. It blends nicely and does not leave a white spf residue. It does not flake off weird under makeup like some sunscreens do.

My morning trifecta

5

At 70 years of age, I am frequently complemented on how youthful my skin is. There is only one reason: sunscreen every single day! But not all sunscreens are created equal and not all play well with quality moisturizers or foundation. Enter this amazing product. It is a mineral sunscreen, so I know it is effective and safe.But it is also a very effective moisturizer with beneficial antioxidants. I happen to like the slightly pearlescent glow it imparts which blends seamlessly into foundation if I use it. So : sunscreen, moisturizer and primer all in one - win win win, trifecta!
