I'm limited to physical sunscreens because of rosacea and extreme eye sensitivity. This is one of the best physical sunscreens I've used. It does not leave a white cast: instead it has a peachy tint, which sounds bad, but it works. It's translucent enough to look entirely natural on my fair skin. The EltaMD physical sunscreens, my other best option, have a more noticeable makeup-like finish and tint that's too dark on me, which is not a problem with this Murad sunscreen. It hits the right balance between moisturizing and not too greasy on my dry skin. Those with oily skin or who prefer a very matte look will probably find it too shiny. It's not water-resistant, but it does stand up to some light sweating. I've had no trouble with breakouts, and I'm on my fourth purchase of this. Finally, like all physical sunscreens, it's best removed with a cleansing oil like DHC's or Kose Softymo.

This is a real ‘meh’ product. It doesn’t break me out or strip my skin, which is a bonus, but it doesn’t really DO anything positive for my skin either. And it’s a nightmare to get out of the tube when you’re nearing the end of the product. I had a sample tube, but am really glad not to have been stuck with a full size of this. I’m really having to force myself to use the amount I have!

This is amazing at keeping me matte. I have very oily t zones and this is the only "moisturizer" that works. If u can look pass the smell then this would be perfect. I use this as a day time moisturizer and i love itEdit- ive been using this for a couple years with no problem but ive become more sensitive to spf after my pregnancy so ive been getting little bumps here and there from this. Sigh its such a god send for oily skin. But now i cant use it......

I had acne scars and some sun damage and (despite the unpleasant smell and extreme tingle upon application) this stuff worked remarkably well to reduce pigmentation! An extra perk was it worked to control my acne because it has glycolic acid. My skin looked awesome with makeup and I didn’t have to cake it on the way I did before. For reference, I have combo skin leaning more towards oily. The reason this lost a star was because it has a controversial ingredient known as hydroquinone so they don’t recommend long term use. In fact, anything over 1% is banned by the EU. If it wasn’t for that, I would have kept using this after the first bottle. Once I stopped the sun damage pigmentation came back after a few months, which was disappointing (but the discoloration from post acne is gone for good - woo!). My skin also went back to its normal self so I started to break out again. I really do love this product because I saw awesome results! I just wish I wasn’t torn about using it year round. I get married in September so I’m really considering picking up another bottle if my new skincare routine doesn’t start working.

Its anti wrinkle ingredients are superb and really effective. You'll see how fresh and youthful your skin looks and glows after a week or so. BUTI'm not so sure about its anti acne functionality!It left me with tiny oil bumps on my skin and worsened the breakouts!Not recommended for acne-prone!
