Love love love this SPF

5

This is my go to SPF. My one and only. In the summer, I love to be outside working in the yard all day long, but am very careful to keep my facial skin well protected. This SPF has never left me down. With a hat and this SPF, my facial skin has never gotten sunburned. I do apply regularly throughout the day just to play it safe. I have problems with SPF bothering my eyes, making them water and burn. I have never experienced that issue with this one. Besides this superior protection during the times of hours outdoors, this SPF is also my favorite for everyday under my makeup. It applies easily, absorbs into the skin and acts like a primer for my foundation. I have experimented with other SPF's, buying those sample kits of various SPF, but nothing compares to this one.

Good

Nice that it has no scent! Kind of chalky texture, takes awhile to blend in.

Lowest scent sunscreen I've found! THIS IS THE ONE IF YOU HAVE FRAGRANCE ISSUES!

4

I've had trouble with how fragrant most sunscreens are-- even ones that are supposedly 'scent-free'. They can trigger migraines on a bad day, and are just irritating on a good day. The scent can linger on clothes, towels, people!-- you name it. I went through the major popular expensive trendy brands here and elsewhere, and this is the lowest scent sunscreen I've found. Yes, it can be drying like the other reviews say, but I layer a generous moisturizer underneath, and it works fine for me. WORTH IT FOR LOW SCENT!

Holy grail sunscreen

5

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

5

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

3

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

5

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

3

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.
