Works but the Smell!

The sunscreen goes on well. The Elta MD Sunscreen is my goto and this one is comparable to it but I can't get over the strong chemical strong when it goes on.

Dark-skin friendly mineral SPF!

5

GREAT SPF! No cons. No white cast. Goes on seamlessly under makeup. Doesn't make me breakout. Just make sure to layer with an anti-oxidant rich serum underneath, since there aren't antioxidants mixed into the formula. Truly an all-star.

Ultra Dark skin friendly!

5

As a woman of color, it is challenging to find a sunscreen that doesn't make me look like I just took a dive in a tub of flour or a ball of white toothpaste was rubbed all over me. This one blends into the skin seamlessly. No white cast! It is not greasy. It plays well with other makeup. It does everything I wished the Elta MD sheer sunscreen would do and more. The Elta usually peels when I apply vitamin C under it. When it is really hot outside, the Elta make me look like I have toothpaste one. The skin medica spf 47 is an excellent upgrade from the elta MD or the first aid beauty sunscreen ( very gritty and ashy), and the Color science tinted sunscreen ( doesn't blend and it is heavy).

Repeat buy

I've been looking for a clean, non-toxic SPF/moisturizer and I think I've found the one! This is my second one so far and seems to work well with my oily/combination skin. It's a higher SPF than most, which my derm suggested, but doesn't seem to clog up my pores or make my skin white like other products.

Just what I was looking for

5

I had previously bought a moisturizer SkinMedica and was very happy with it so I thought I'd try their sunscreen. It's very light and non irritating. I have sensitive skin so I am very happy with this sunscreeen.

Only sunscreen for me

5

I have loved this for several years, but now love it even more! I recently moved to Florida and this is the only sunscreen that stands up (I use SPF 45) for to entire day which typically includes 4 hours of golf. Worth the money. Not white on my skin, and I have dry skin but use the formula for oily skin and it is just fine. I apply and allow it so set for a few minutes before I apply makeup. Love it!

My Go-To SPF

5

I've tried a TON of SPF products on my face. I would compare this to EltaMD's UV Clear, but I like this SkinMedica one better. It still controls oil thanks to the niacinamide, but it doesn't have lactic acid and so my sensitive skin can handle it better. I do have to apply a layer of SkinMedica HA5 underneath this as my skin has a love/hate relationship with niacinamide (loves the oil control and anti-pigmentation benefits, but can become irritated easily). Once I figured out how to use this without irritation, it turned into my HG SPF. Some other things to note about my skin: I strictly use fungal acne safe products (same goes for my hair products), I use adapalane (Differin gel) and azelaic acid (Finacea 15% gel).

my go-to sunscreen

5

Love this sunscreen. I put their moisturizer on first then the sunscreen. Works wonders. Not streaky at all and really feels like great coverage. Nice consistency of product. Wish it came in a bigger size so I wasn't always buying more!
