I swear by it. I have never been able to use sunscreen for 25-30yrs of my life, because my skin will breakout with those oily products. I had tried so many brands over such a long time that i lost the list now. This was recommended by a colleague of mine who has skin you will be jealous of. Gave it a try and has never stopped since then. It doesn’t add any oil to clog your skin. It’s very light. And does its job beautifully but silently. You will forget you are wearing this, it’s so light. Can’t rave enough about it. Got my full family hooked to it

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 sunscreeen and would never use anything else. Not only is it effective, but the texture of my skin is soft and ready for either nothing on top or a light layer of makeup. My makeup goes on so smooth after it

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.

My favorite sunscreen for my face! Not oily, goes on smooth and dries quick. No weird smell. Works so well with my very fair skin and easy to put on under my make up and go out during summer!

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.

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.

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!
