Fantastic product

This is a dream for sensitive - rosacea prone skin. I never used to wear sunscreen daily, but got a bad rosacea flare after having baby. Mineral is the way to go for so many reasons, but especially in rosaceaa. This sun screen does not have any white cast, goes on smoothly, and it actually makes my skin look better immediately after putting it on. I was breaking out a ton from the rosacea flare and this sun screen did NOT make things worse.

Unbelievably good mineral sunscreen

Of all high-end mineral sunscreens I've tried (colorescience, eltaMD, sente, skinceuticals, paula's choice, etc.), this is by far the most comfortable to wear.

Really good

I really like this sunscreen .. I does not break me out and doesn’t leave a white cast like other mineral sunscreens  despite being medium brown skin.

This is a good sunscreen. Not a big white cast but it feels a bit sticky at the beginning, not sure if on my top5

Just ok sunscreen

This was just “Ok” sunscreen.  The product goes on very white and takes a while for the white look to go away.  I will stick with Elta Md

THE BEST FACIAL SPF EVER!!

I've tried several SPF's, however this is the BEST SPF EVER. This is the BEST for UVA & UVB rays protection, anti aging and hyperpigmentation / melasma. I use it every day. You will NOT regret this purchase. (Not every sunscreen is made the same!!) - MINERAL Shield - TSA friendly - Will NOT clog pores - Oil free, Paraben free, Hypoallergenic, Fragrance free -Active Ingredients ****Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide

Indoor spf

Nice texture, will blend into skin nicely.  Doesn’t leave a white cast, but a light sheen.  I use it as an indoors day spf since zinc oxide it’s not very high for this spf .  I think the texture and performance is better then the “E” brand.

GREAT

Hands down one of the best mineral sunscreens I have tried, especially if you have dry skin. It is moisturizing, no white cast and works well under makeup. Can't go wrong, definitely my go-to daily sunscreen.

One of the best

I have tried many sunscreens and this is, at the moment, my favorite. It's a nice, light texture and rubs into my skin so smoothly. There is no pilling and no flakiness. I have tried the tinted version as well and love it just the same, it works well with my light warm skin tone. I prefer all mineral sunscreens due to sensitive skin and finding one with minimal white cast is tough. I lather my face with this and if you blend it well there's little or no white cast and it's not greasy. Also, no breakouts with this one.
