  • "This is part of my everyday routine, recommended by my general doctor since he sw how sensitive my skin was, i was a little wary at the beggining because i dont really feel confortable using sunscreens because they feel oily on my already greasy face, not to mention the white face afterwards, BUT THIS WORKED MAGIC on my skin, it leaves no trace at all, feels fresh unline many others i tried before. Now you can say im sort of an addict for it. " in 84 reviews

I usually avoid sunscreens because they irritate my sensitive skin and leave a white cast on my face. I have Rosácea and I was desperately looking for a sunscreen I could use that wouldn’t burn my skin. My dermatologist actually recommended this brand. The price seemed ridiculous at first but I decided to try it and I’m so glad I did! It sinks into the skin and leaves it looking smooth and clear! No stinging! Now white cast! And it’s a high spf so I feel better whenever I’m out in direct sunlight! If you have sensitive skin I would highly reccomend. Even if you don’t but you’re just looking for a light sunscreen, this is it.

This sunscreen was marketed to be “ultra light,” but it left a foul-smelling, milky film on my skin. It also pooled up and stung my eyes badly whenever I would sweat, as well as pill underneath makeup. After several uses, I also started to notice a gritty, almost sandy texture to the product as I applied it. Upon reading others’ reviews, this seems to be a relatively common occurrence, so it does not seem that my product was defective. I will not be repurchasing this sunscreen, but I am curious about the tinted version that does not seem to have these issues.

As a lifeguard I can’t recommend this sunscreen enough! There’s nothing I hate more than the thick sticky feeling that comes with most sunscreens. I’ve tried every drug store brand and multiple high end brands specifally formulated for the face (including supergoop, tarte, etc) and this one wins by far. It applies with a primer-like texture and leaves your skin feeling untouched while still being protected!

This sunscreen texture is so pleasant. I just love the way it sinks into the skin, no heaviness at all! It really is a liquid when it comes out...so much so, in fact, that you have to be careful when you put it in a bag to be sure it doesn’t leak; seal it well. It did not irritate my dry/combination skin. I do not burn easily, but it seemed to me that the protection was effective.

After the ban on Japan's export of their wonderful and cosmetically elegant sunscreen I was at a loss. Until I did some research and came across this. It's perfection under makeup, works well with moisturizers, and I cannot recommend it enough. The company also does an amazing job with skin health and heads and finds a skin cancer hospital and learning center.

I received a sample of this sunscreen when I went to my dermatologist and I’ve been in love ever since. It’s great for oily skin because it doesn’t leave me feeling greasy and even doubles as a matte face primer. I don’t get a white cast from this sunscreen either and that’s always a plus!

By far my favourite body SPF. Super light weight, doesn’t feel like I’m wearing some heavy sticky lotion. I have very sensitive skin and it’s one of the only lines of SPF that doesn’t irritate or make my skin red. I wish it wasn’t as expensive as it is but sun prevention is the most important skincare steps!

The only sunscreen I use after testing out millions. Very thin consistency and does not leave a white cast. I get so  many compliments on my skin when I wear it. Leaves the skin looking really healthy and glowy without looking greasy. A little goes a long way so really great price for value.

Really wanted to like this product but it left an obvious whitecast on my face. No matter how much I tried to blend it into my skin, I still looked paler than I did before application. Also, this sunscreen grabbed onto my dry patches and they were especially visible when I put on this sunscreen.

I LOVE THIS SUNSCREEN!!Granted, it’s on the pricey side but boy, has it helped me with my skin. It’s my first time trying it but I’m glad I tried it. I bought this in Ulta.com and I’m glad I got it. So many sunscreens I’ve used would give me a weird reaction but not this one.
