Holy grail sunscreen

My skin is highly reactive and I have struggled to find a daily sunscreen that my skin can tolerate. This sunscreen is my holy grail! The white cast is minimal and disappears within a minute as long as I take the time to rub it in.

The only sunscreen I use on my face

I bought this about 2 years ago when I got pregnant and switched to physical sunscreen. I have continued to use it even though I'm no longer nursing because it is lightweight, easy to apply, leaves no white cast, and layers really well under all kinds of makeup. No complaints and thank goodness my search for a face sunscreen is now over.

Not for dry skin

I love that this sunscreen is fully physical and does not have a white caste, but other than that I don’t like it. It’s very drying on my skin, and makes it feel tight. I have normal to dry skin, and am prone to breakouts. This doesn’t break me out but the dry feeling will keep me from repurchasing it.

Great physical sunscreen

I was looking for an untinted, purely physical/mineral sunscreen and this fit the bill. When first applied, there was a bit of a white cast, but it disappears completely within moments. This will definitely be part of my summer skin care routine!

Wished it was better

I was excited to try this sunscreen based on the reviews I read and my positive view of the brand.  Unfortunately it doesn't live up to expectation.  It feels drying and leaves a white cast on my face despite my being pale. I noticed no change in my skin's tone or texture as advertised. I'm disappointed and will not purchase this again.

Started great, but dried out my skin

I thought this looked great when it went on! I was easily able to top it with some light foundation once it had settled. But by the end of the day, the areas of my face that tend to dryness were REALLY dried out. If you don't have dry skin, I think this would be absolutely worth a try.

Great sunscreen. It is transparent. My skin feels breathable and protected.

Highly recommend

I love this sunscreen. It’s barely noticeable for a mineral sunscreen and no white cast. No shiny look or residue and very comfortable to wear. Looks great under makeup and doesn’t cause break outs or sensitivity. Stays on well but an oil cleanser takes off easily. I’ve tried coola, shisedo, supergoop, and even expensive la mer-this is by far my favorite!

This is my go-to moisturizer recommended from my dermatologist for my dry sensitive skin.
