Use it every day. I used to break out with any sunscreen, and this is the first one I can use daily, with no problems. All the best docs recommend it, so I have to assume that science backs up its efficacy. Teensy bit tacky, at first, but quickly dries to a lovely finish. Never pills. I have it on auto re-order. Great stuff.

I give this a 5 because its the best sunscreen I've used so far, but real talk, I hate sunscreen, especially in the dry winters where I live. That said I wear this everyday. Its a big improvement from the Elta MD Physical 41 that I had been using for years before I found this. The Elements is a bit more moisturizing, and has a creamier, more elegant texture. The tint is about the same, no issues here on my NC25 skin. On a good skin, or I don't care that much kind of day, this and some concealer are all I need. However, I often put some Glossier Skin Tint on top and the combination gives me a really even but natural look. In the the more humid part of the year (late spring to early fall) this is great. However, in the winter, the zinc in it is drying and my skin often feels tight and dehydrated when its on. A lot of the dehydration comes from Retin-A which I need for my acne. Moisturizer helps a little bit, and I'm not going to deduct points because this is an issue with any physical sunscreen for me in the winter. This one has given me the least problems.Also the pump is kind of weird, especially with a new bottle. Sometimes product won't come out. I figured out the trick to getting it to work is to unscrew the pump, squeeze out any trapped air in the bottle and then put the pump back on. This bottle design might be more airtight, but I'd prefer a squeeze tube like the Physical 41.

This sunscreen is a 10/10 in every category for me. I had a lot of trouble finding a sunscreen that wouldn't pill up when worn under makeup, but this one applies well and soaks into skin quickly. I have allergic reactions to many products (even those formulated for sensitive skin,) and I had no reaction to this. The pump dispenser works well, it's reasonably priced, and I haven't had any sunburns or new freckles since using this. I will definitely repurchase!

Amazing product if you are acne-prone!I always struggled to find a decent suncream for my face which wasn't greasy, smelly and didn't break me out.Cannot thank Dr Sam Bunting (an incredible London based dermatologist) enough for recommending this. It is seriously a god send and I don't dread wearing suncream on my face everyday.

I purchased this after watching Dr Dray's videos as this is her staple sunscreen. I started using Differin at night recently and using Biore UV Watery Essence burns my face. So I jumped the gun and bought this without having tried it, haha. Pros:- light weight- buildable- tint is natural (I'm usually NC20-25, but my face looks sunburnt from Differin)- completely non-irritating to my now-fragile skin- looks great under liquid foundation (I wore Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in a humid and warmish weather, and it looked great after walking around Mong Kok, Hong Kong the whole afternoon)Cons:- a little bit greasy feeling after application but it could be that I didn't give it enough time to absorb before starting my makeup routine- a bit pricey but a little goes a long way
