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.

I got this in a sample size and it worked very well and was mattefying with was very nice. Only thing is that if definitely smells like sunscreen which isnt a bad thing necessary but I would like the product a lot more if it didnt smell like that

Love! It’s HG status. Expensive compared to regular sunscreens but since I’m sensitive to the sun I tried it. Let me just say that it is so amazing that you will only get a slight tan. No burning or peeling. Highly recommend

Got this as a couple of samples from a friend, It protects the skin pretty well, but it’s a little greasy for daily use, makes my complexion shine in a couple of minutes after applying also clogs my pores. Is a little pricey compared to other brands...

I received this from influenster and it was a really great sun screen. It is a bit expansive for the price tho. Most likely wouldn't purchase other then receiving this for free.

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 LOVE this sunscreen. It is amazing. I have never gotten a sunburn once while wearing it, and plus, it is oil free so it doesn't give me (even more) pimples! It's also very small and handy for when I need to bring it with me somewhere. All in all, this is an amazing sunscreen and I would definitely recommend it.

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!
