This is a really good sunscreen, just pricey. It doesn’t look white on me and it feels great on my skin. It gets the job done. Make sure you’re applying enough though!! At least a nickel size amount for just your face, more for your neck

Expensive, but worth the price!! The only think I don’t like was the packaging. They could do better, but most of their products are packaged like this. Gives me a little shine, but works well with makeup.

This product is one of the best facial sunscreens I've ever used, with a few important caveats that prevent me from repurchasing. Firstly, a few things I love about it: 1) it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, cause breakouts, or clog my pores, 2) it is genuinely lightweight on the skin, as the name suggests, 3) the consistency is a light fluid, almost like a serum, which is a lot more pleasant on the face than traditionally heavier sun creams, and 4) the packaging is absolutely perfect: compact, lightweight, secure and very travel-friendly. I think all skincare and makeup should be packaged this way!

Now, on to the cons: even on my dry skin, this product can feel a bit greasy after a while, and I do notice that it causes my foundation to slip around and break down a bit quicker. I've worn multiple foundations with this underneath and have found it makes each one fade quicker. If I apply a substantial amount, I sometimes feel like I'm walking around with a greasy film on my face. Compared to traditional sunscreens, again, the grease factor is still relatively low. Another con would be the relatively high price point per ounce, though in fairness, the thin fluid consistency means that a little goes a long way and one tiny bottle lasts far longer than you'd think. As a final downside, and the real reason I probably won't repurchase: I'm not sure this adequately protects my skin against sun damage. Even when I wear this and step out for short periods of time, I sometimes notice a bit of tanning on my face, which makes me question how much sun protection this really offers. I apply at least 1/4 of a tsp to my face each time, but no dice. Other sunscreens I've tried in the past, such as those by Shiseido, are less cosmetically elegant but seem to offer better protection as I experience little to no change in color with them.

The best sunscreen ever! It is lightweight, not greasy, doesn't leave a white cast, doesn't break me out, and is a physical sunscreen. Sits really well under makeup too!

This moisturizer goes on great and isn’t that oily, if I don’t plan on wearing concealer/foundation. However, under makeup I felt that it made my makeup slide around.

Virtually weightless, oil-free formula that dries to a sheer, perfecting, matte layer of sun protection (UVA/UVB) on my combination skin. As recommended, I apply 15-20 minutes before hitting the door. Wears very well beneath my matte foundations. However, I tend to use this product on no- or minimal makeup days.
Note: Recommended re-application schedule is every 2 hours.
Bottom line: Algenist Ultra Lightweight UV Defense Fluid SPF 50 is one if my summer go-tos and a definite re-buy.

I can’t speak much on this sunscreen’s effectiveness as I don’t normally show signs of significant sun damage or sunburn. However I feel I am preventing aging and darkening my hyperpigmentation and I enjoy the product. The smell is not my favorite thing but isn’t totally unpleasant, and wears very well under makeup.
