I rate this product 5 stars because it is a pleasure to wear and how many sunscreens can that be said of? I have used the UV Daily SPF 40 (untinted) and it's light, moisturizing and doesn't impart a white cast. It is also fragrance free, comes in well designed packaging, and is an effective formula. I would say that I have experienced slight sensitization because it contains a chemical sunscreen agent and I have rosacea but the chemical sunscreen agent is what gets this product to the impressive SPF that it has and I have never burned while wearing it, so I do not fault the product for being sensitizing when every chemical sunscreen has the potential to irritate sensitive skin.It is very worthy of consideration by anyone wanting to protect their skin with an elegant formula at a fair price.

I have rosacea, so I found the formula a tiny bit sensitizing because of the octinoxate sunscreen ingredient - but I am not basing this review on that formulation issue because chemical sunscreens are always going to be a potential issue for someone with sensitive skin, whether it's from rosacea or another condition.My issue with this product is how it tends to pill when applied over a serum. In my case, the product pilled over both the SkinMedica HA5 and the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic. I haven't experienced pilling when using either of those serums with any other sunscreen. If this product doesn't pill with the other products you use in your routine then I think it's got a lot of promise. It has an SPF of 46, does not impart a white cast onto the skin and feels very light and pleasant. My preference in the Elta MD line is the UV Daily SPF 40 which does not pill and feels more moisturizing.

i use this in the am and pm as my moisturizer after cleansing. If i do go out from 10 to 4pm i will just put on the spf46 clear by eltamd instead and use this at night if i am feeling extra dry. i skip night time moisturizer since i am using curology and i dont need it right now but this is just something to have in case i do need a boost of moisture. I am loving the brand eltamd for skincare, it does a great job and does not irritate my skin. . I have very acne prone sensitive oily combo skin. This pm therapy feels gel like but applies like a cream. It sinks in and feels super comfortable and makes skin feel very hydrated but not greasy. It has great ingredients that will help even out skintone and enhance the elasticity of the skin which is what i look for. Will update edit- still really like this, this seems to make my skin look more even and less rededit: after using this i think its feeding my fungal acne. It has linoic acid and its a no no! Returned this

Needs more shades but the tint works suprisingly well on my pale AF skin (NW10-13 maybe), it looks a bit dark but it's so sheer and very neutral-toned. I think it may be more problematic on deeper skin tones. On me it gives the tiniest hint of color (redness) correction, somewhat similar to the Bareminerals Primer BB Cream SPF30 (somewhere between Light and Fair) though that one is much more slippery and silicone-y than this. This sets fairly quickly, and doesn't have so much glide that it feels hard to apply enough for adequate SPF. I haven't tried this under foundation yet, tho it seems like it should work, but I've taken to using this + a semi sheer powder as my daytime base this summer. I'm really impressed with this actually. Even though I'm in Europe and don't have to rely on the puzzle of "non-whitening" zinc oxide for excellent photo-stable non-toxic UVA protection, I haven't really found a face sunscreen that doesn't mess with my skin too much. Didn't think I was going to end up choosing a physical-only sunscreen - but this really is good. Too bad it's so expensive.

This does go on easily and has a nice texture, plus is non-chemical sunscreens, which is a huge plus. It didn't irritate my reactive skin but that's where the goodness stopped. I have really dry skin and this seemed to take forever to sink in and once it did, my face felt dry enough to crack when I smiled. I ended up applying moisturizer over it get get my skin feeling comfortable again. It's a shame as I hear great things about the sun protection of this one.
