I have dry skin but need an AM sunscreen. Is this moisturizing enough for dry skin or is it a drying finish? Does it sit well under foundation?
Does this feel thick or oily?
Has anyone with oily/ combination name tried any sunscreen they absolutely recommend? [product:elta-md-skincare-uv-clear-broad-spectrum-spf-46-facial-sunscreen-17-oz] ?

Lovely product like the rest of EltaMD sunscreens! This one is a bit more affordable than the UV Clear, so I don’t feel as guilty for using a lot of it. It goes on clear and feels like moisturizer! Can’t say much about the sun protection because I haven’t been out in the sun with it on, but I trust their products!

I feel that is a very good product. I goes on the skin very smoothly and did not feel greasy or heavy. I use it under my foundation even without a primer. I still use this product and I use it more often in the spring and summer I feel that this is a good product that isn't overly priced.

I love this brand, and decided to experiment with each different product. I felt this product did not protect my skin from the sun. I did not apply as you would say “a liberal amount” of product, but enough where it should have offered protection. I decided not to repurchase, and stick to the Elta 30, and the physical tinted 44. I used the remaining product on my hands. I find it was more effective for my hands it’s possible there was an issue with the product absorbing onto my face. Nevertheless, it’s a bit too expensive to use only on my hands, so again I would not re-purchase this

This Sun screen is alright. Not my favorite. Slight white car when I wear it and some days I look greasy. Still looked for my holy grail after this. It’s a good basic sunscreen if you want something simple and non toxic

The best sunscreen I have ever used so far. I have brown-dark skin and its not so easy to find sunscreen that genuinely works and also does not leave residue or make your skin ashy. I love this product and it lasts me a long time. It does not have an awful smell either. Its perfect to me and I will continue to use it. A bit pricey but its amazing.

This product is perfect for those with naturally oily skin and acne prone skin. It’s a light layer and doesn’t leave you feeling gross and greasy. Would definitely recommend!

This sunscreen is ALWAYS written that it’s the best and I can see why. It sinks right in leaving no white residue and no greasy feel as well. It’s gentle and I’d recommend and buy. I had some samples that I tried.

I really like that this goes on nicely. Not thick or sticky and absorbs quickly with little to no smell. It keeps me protected from the sun.

Fantastic sunscreen! Leaves a minimal white cast on light skin. Works well under makeup. I would recommend this sunscreen!

This is my one and only sun block I love and trust! I have very oily skin and was recommended this one by a dermatologist. It does not add any oil to the skin like most sun blocks do. It’s almost like a matte dry consistency. I even got the tinted one to give me a touch of color since I don’t wear makeup daily. It keeps my skins oil in check throughout the day as well.
