I purchased this item to wear at the beach or pool to protect my face from the sun. I like that it is PABA free and non comedogenic. It was not at all greasy, which is a big concern for me when it comes to sunscreen. It has a nice matte finish. I usually only have to apply it once - sometimes I will reapply it if I've been sweating. It does a great job of shielding my skin from the sun. I would recommend this product.

This was a super light weight great smelling lotion. I received a sample in my allure box and fell in love. It was super effective and didn’t leave a white cast. I will for sure be purchasing the full size as I love this sunscreen!

I love this sunscreen for my face. I recommendthis to everyone I know. It doesn't clog your pores, or make your skin feel oily, or greasy feeling. It still on for about the 2 hours and then I reapply like all sunscreen, it might last longer then that but I'm always worried about skin cancer so I reapply every 2 hours. But I but this every summer and use it all by the end of the summer.

My favorite thing about this sunscreen is how it feels on my skin. most are oily or even react super poorly to sweat but because this one is so matte it absorbs into my skin well and doesnt sting my eyes. For $30 I think its a really high quality sunscreen and is honestly my go to. I still get a bronzed glow but I dont burn anymore

Very happy with this product. You definitely get a lot of product for how much you pay and it is very gentle! My only issue with this is that it leaves a white residue on your face unless you spend a good amount of time rubbing it in, which I don't really like. I'm definitely not a fan of the tinted version, it is way too oily!

I love using this product every time I know that I am going to be in a lot of sun because I know that it will provide me optimal coverage. I don't think that is worth the money because it is a little bit drying to the skin and sometimes oil it. So it's not a perfect balance but overall it's good but I probably will by the end

My dermatologist recommended La Roche Posay products for my sensitive skin and rosacea. This sunscreen is mild enough to wear in my face every day, but it definitely has that sunscreen odor and is greasy. I prefer other products in this line with sunscreen properties fir my face and a less expensive sunscreen for my body.

I'm very worried about taking care of my skin, especially the host, and with the day to day it is necessary something that protects our skin against the violet rays and with age marks, I started using this product a few months ago and super I recommend ! the skin becomes softer, smoother and smoother. I also like to use the color version because I can avoid wearing makeup

This product was ok but good for oily skin. It was disappointing because it left my face really oily. The packaging was ok. I’m a first time user of this sunscreen but I have been using other products from this product line. I would not repurchase this product.

Do you find that you can wear makeup on top of this sunscreen? Am looking for a relatively high SPF sunscreen that won't cause my makeup to melt off!
