Where has this stuff been all my life. My skin has been getting less acne prone as I get older and can go without foundation but tinted moisturizers are too light. This is a tinted moisturizer but it has a good amount of color, more like a BB or CC really. I love how I have SPF and color at the same time. Perfect for that primer/ spf/ color dilemma I always have.

Since this sunblock contain 20% zinc oxide I was anticipating a strong white cast but it’s barely visible and fades within hours. I also expected it to be matte and somewhat drying since zinc oxide is a highly absorbent ingredient and this product is oil free. Instead it’s moisturizing and leaves a very luminous finish. It doesn’t pill up, and wears well under my BareMinerals Original Foundation and NARS RCC. If you have dry, sensitive, Rosacea prone skin I think you will love this SPF as much as I do.AM RoutineTimeless Vitamin C + E + Ferulic Acid SerumThe Ordinary Buffet SerumCeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PMThe Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%COTZ Sensitive SPF 40

I find this product very difficult to apply. It is not greasy and has an almost putty-like texture. While it isn't as ghostly white as many physical sunscreens, it leaves my fair olive skin looking ashen. I really have to work at making a smooth application. (I don't use this when I want a 30 second slather and run out the door morning process.) As I mentioned, it isn't nearly as greasy as most of the competition but upon drying, it does have a slightly tacky finish. My first tube has had a packaging failure as the cap is defective and does not seal. This is unacceptable in a relatively pricey product!

The only thing I like about this is the sun protection. It has a weird taste and smell, is tinted light brown, and is not particularly moisturizing. Definitely not for someone with dry peely lips, because this will accentuate the dryness and make you look like your lips are dirty/gunky.

This has replaced my previous face sunscreen. I got a sample of it and fell in love.I use physical-only on my face, because chemical sunscreen actives irritate my eyes. (However, for my body I can use chemical.) It is hard to fine a physical-only sunscreen that doesn't look chalky, looks flawless on skin, and doesn't slide around. The tint and texture looks like poop when it comes out of the tube. It looks like it won't work as you first put it on. However, after it settles on your skin, the tint blends very nicely on my skin. You can apply it on half you face to test this. My skin ranges from light-med to medium depending on the season. If you have very fair skin, this won't work.This is a silicone-based sunscreen. So if you don't like silicones, don't get this. I like it because it also serves as a primer and mattifier before putting on makeup, so I get my money's worth. It blurs out my imperfections in a flattering way. What I really love about it is it stays in place. It doesn't slide around like some silicone products do. (Note, if you wear a water-based foundation, silicone doesn't wear well under those. Even though water will always be the first ingredient in most liquid foundations, your foundation can still be silicone-based. Just check to see if the next ingredients after water are silicone.)This does not serve as a moisturizer. You will need to wear a separate moisturizer underneath. But, I don't mine because I'm still saving money by not having to buy a primer/mattifier before putting on my makeup. I never found physical sunscreens to be moisturizing anyway - unless they have a bunch of oils in it that don't play well my oily skin. I always wear a separate gel moisturizer underneath any physical sunscreen.The tube is small, but it is also way cheaper than Tizo3 and has the same ingredients. I usually get 20% discounts from Dermstore and get it for $16 for 1.5 oz. The most I've seen it for is $20. Tizo3 is $36-$40 for 1.75 oz.Note: The picture on here is outdated. The packaging doesn't look like that anymore.
