I tried this and the Uriage Depiderm SPF 50, and I like the Depiderm WAY better because although this is designed for oily, acne-prone skin, which I have, the Depiderm is unfragranced, works better w/ mu, and gives more protection from PIH. This is a lighter, thin cream than the Depiderm, but is highly fragranced, which I found very annoying. If fragranced skin care doesn't bother you, you may like this, but I cant stand strong fragrances on my face, and a lot of scents bother my skin. I never got any irritation or breakouts, but the smell really bugged me. It dries to a nice, clear, matte finish IF used alone. If I applied foundation over this, I got a mess - pilling, balling, every tiny flake and dry skin patch showing through and accentuated, etc. I tried waiting a while, not waiting, nothing worked. Overall, fine to use alone if you don't mind fragrance. For me, it didn't work. Will not buy again because of the scent and the fact it did';t play well w/ any of my foundations. Otherwise, a nice product.
