Wonderful and Handy Suncare

I love this sunscreen! I use it when I go on my walks and the beach. It WORKS! The tint makes me look like I am wearing foundation and I have never had sunburn on my face. It doesn’t sweat off which is essential for hot sunny days.

The best

I’d definitely purchase this again as I see a significant improvement in my skin texture. Because other spf would be heavy on my skin

The best!

Super lightweight. Doesn’t make your face oily. I love that it’s tinted too. Gives you just a bit color. Love this product. Lasts pretty long. A little bit goes a long way!

Silky Sunscreen

Love this! I was using the liquid tinted defense but this is much less shiny and goes on like a silky cream.  I mix this with another tinted product and so I achieve the perfect color and protect my mature skin from anymore sun damage.

Nice try

Maybe it was the high expectations of being a skinceutical product that's tinted, spf 50, AND mattifying, but this product did not deliver. Product wasn't really mattifying and felt wet on the skin. No oil absorbing and just sits there. It's difficult to shake and mix the product because of its stiff small tube. It feels very siliconey and may be why it's pilling so much as well. I have to lightly tap on the product and use quite the amount to get decent spf coverage on my face and neck. This takes way too long for daily application. My skin tone is considered light with cool undertones and this brought a hint of summer warmth to my face, a tad too dark in my opinion. This would be good for warm or neutral tones that are between light and medium skin tones. Colorscience Sunforgettable (lightest shade) is a much better fit for my skin. Maybe this is actually better for those with dry skin?

Best Sunscreen Ever!

I've tried every variation of facial sunscreens: mineral, chemical, cream, spray, tinted, non-tinted, sport, non-sport, and so on. I kept coming back to this one, even over more expensive ones. This sunscreen has a light, powdery feel with a matte, skin-tone finish. It's best if you use your own preferred moisturizer underneath this sunscreen. Because this sunscreen is "physical," meaning that tiny particles of zinc actually rest on the skin, I get the most effective, longer-lasting sunscreen than the chemical ones.  I work outside all day, so I have to have one that doesn't run in my eyes. Because I use retinol, I need a serious sunscreen that lasts. This one does that, and it's delicate tint keeps it from looking chalky. The tint doesn't seem to affect the look of my skin directly, but it prevents that awful ghostly look. Well worth every penny!

Matte Holy Grail

This has become my absolute favorite facial sunscreen. It keeps my face matte and smooth all day, even in the south through hot outdoor activities, without a hint of greasiness or shine. Beautiful coverage and no white residue like most physical sunscreens. Skinceuticals please create a daily / lighter matte tinted moisturizer just like this-would use every day except this is a little thicker so I save it for pool and summer activities!! THE best... haven't found anything else like it.

Good for sensitive acne prone skin

This is very good if you have acne and oily skin it is a little bit noticeable but it has almost no coverage

Great Matte SPF

Loved the matte texture, it dried down beautifully without drying out my skin and I liked the light coverage - perfect for Summer. Unfortunately, it clogged my pores so not great if you have overactive oil skin.
