I've using this for about two weeks. I am very oily and live in Phx where we are already experiencing 110 degree weather (May). So far this hasn't broken me out and I have very sensitive skin. I apply after toner and it quickly dries to a matte finish. I make sure I rub in my foundation stick over it before it completely dries to a matte finish.

The fact that this product has an SPF of 45 is very impressive and will continue to purchase.

I'm sorry, but this stuff is just horrible on me. There is nothing "dry" about it. I just put some on this morning and my face was and still IS shiny - gross; like all I need is more shine. It also made my face itch in spots after I applied it. I feel so lovely...not.

Love this stuff; I'm on my ??? bottle. I live in a sunny climate and use it everyday on my face, chest and the backs of my hands. It dries nicely, leaving only a little shine on my face, which powder covers nicely for days I want to be matte. No skin issues, but I do cleanse morning and evening pretty obsessively.

This is my favorite sunscreen. It definitely is what it says on the package - ultra-light clean feel, fast-absorbing, light scent. I feel the need to wear a strong enough sunscreen everyday, being in sunny L.A., but was bothered by the coconut scents and sticky feel of most drugstore sunscreens. This one solves the problem!

I also have combo/oily skin, and after a month, I can say that this is safe to use on my face too.

Price is a bit much for a drugstore sunscreen, but it's worth it when it does what it says it's going to do. Definitely a keeper.

I like this sunscreen very much! It`s absorbed quickly and there`s no greasiness after application. I`m very prone to breaking out, and this sunscreen did not give me one zit! I use it year round under my moisturizer and makeup. I`m very young, but i`m taking precautions already as to protect my skin from wrinkles, freckles and cancer in the future! It`s SPF 45, very strong, so i know i`ll be protected! Great stuff! :)

Ouch! My facial skin is not generally too sensitive, but this stuff stings - and not just upon application, but throughout the day. Granted, I am using a retinol treatment and maybe my skin is being more delicate because of it, but this stuff actually caused blotches that lasted a few days and induced peeling/rawness. I tried it twice and I'm calling uncle. If anyone else out there has reacted this way to this product and then gone on to find a good sunscreen or higher-spf foundation that doesn't seem to aggravate break-out prone skin, I'd LOVE to hear from you.

Love this stuff and here's why: I live in a very ~dry~ climate & this product doesn't make my face sweat.

This has to be the best sunscreen I have ever used. I have combo skin with an oily T zone, and this lotion actually moisturizes my cheeks and gets rid of the oil on my forehead. I apply this about 2-3 times a day since I am in school and the product still looks good since i am using it in layers. I will really buy this again. I havent tried to put makeup over it but I imagine it will look great, since this leaves my skin feeling so smooth. The only thing I did not like was the price, 10 bucks at CVS, but for what it does why complain. You all will not regret this!!!

So far, this is my holy grail of sunscreens. It does on a daily basis what I need it to do- it doesn't slide off, stays dry, doesn't give off a whitish cast, works well under makeup, doesn't break me out, and even works well as a primer. That being said, I also live in a really cold northern climate, where we don't get much sun to start with, so on a daily basis, this is fabulous. I'm sure people who use this on the beach will disagree. On my holiday, I will admit I am not as anal about sun protection as I ought to be. Used this, along with giant sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat. In the hot Mexico sun, it did allow some rays to penetrate, especially on my nose (where it basically was sweated off)but I didn't burn, nor did I actually tan much, either. So in terms of beach use, it isn't holy grail. But for our Canadian weather, summer through winter, it's the best!

I love the Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF30, so I thought I'd try the SPF45. For my combo acne-prone skin, this one turned out to be a bad idea. The SPF45 is more viscous and creamy than the SPF30. I found this to be thicker and more oily. I guess those 15 SPF points make a rather big difference in the amount of active ingredients. If you have drier skin or no problem with breakouts, this might be a very good choice for you.
