to the best of my understanding, having read all the ss notepads, this ss is not photostable and will therefore break down and not provide the protection promised.
that's too bad because as everyone else has said, the texture is really nice and matte, which is hard to find in a ss.
someone please correct me if i'm wrong, but if it's not photostable, i don't see the point in purchasing it. why not just use a matte moisturizer?
I use the murad oilcontrol spf15 as my daily sunscreen but on sunny days or days that I'm outside I want something with an higher spf so that I can be in the sun longer.
I love this! This isn't at all as the normal sunscreen. This is dry, not at all greasy, goes in fast and best of all you don't feel it on. The finish of it is matt-ish, not at all shiny and greasy.
This doesn't make me more greasy/shiny, has silica as 2nd ingridient so that it will help to absorb oil. I havn't use it under summer months but when May comes this is going to be my daily sunscreen. This hasn't made me breakout so I'm going to buy an extra so I can use it on my body when going to the beach this summer.
This is fragrance-free but it has an some smell (not that sunscreen smell), maybe from some plantextract...
Totally recommending it for oilier skintypes.
Fabulous sunscreen for those of us who fight oiliness! More matte than Neutrogena Dry Touch -which I was never in love with, but was the best I'd found until now. No fragrance. Simply undetectable once it's on. Has not broke me out with 3+ weeks of daily use. Adds NO SHINE whatsoever. May they never stop making this product.
Super Uber! I do have to say I was amazed at how super dry it is! I've always been hesitant to put sunscreen on my face as they are normally so creamy/greasy...not this stuff! Wears very well under make-up. Check it out...it's loaded with antioxidents. Will definitely buy again!
This is my HG sunscreen. It goes on matte, looks great, doesn't go shiny on me even after I wear it all day (though I do have to do my usual blotting mid-day-- that never changes). You have to put it on just before your foundation and not let it dry too long, or it can tend to pill up a bit and come off when you rub your foundation on. Something I'd love to see fixed. But otherwise it's a PERFECT sunscreen. Feels great on, looks great on.
I have been looking for a good sunscreen for over 5 years.I have combination skin with a oily T zone area. I also wear make-up, trying to find a sunscreen that will not create a oil slick on my face by lunch time was almost impossible. I found this sunscreen in Sephora. I have been using it for about 2 weeks. So far I love it, It melts into your face quickly with out leaving the white film. it's doesn't even feel like I have anything on my face. And my skin has nice dry look.
It's also great under my make up!!!
I tried soo many sunscreens and most of them are oily. Not most, but all of them are oily! So one day when I was Sephora, one of the girl introduced me to this brand. Ive never heard of this brand before. And then she said Tiger Woods use this stuff and blah blah blah and my mother said I should just get it. So I tried it out once I reach home. And amazingly, this doesnt make my skin oily at all!
Those days when I dont feel like using my toner, anti bacterial and moisturizer, I will just use this alone. I would definitely recommend this to ALL.
Love, love, love this stuff! I have very oily skin and this is the only sunscreen that truly goes on matte with no after feel. It's not sticky and although it's white, it blends effortlessly. I also love that it has antioxidants. It's really the only sunscreen I can wear alone without getting oily 30 minutes later. Definitely a keeper!
This is one of my favorite chemical based sunscreens. Goes on light, dries matte, no white cast and you do not feel like you are wearing anything at all. Also provides antioxidants. It really is a terrific product. If you are ok with chemical sunscreens, try this one, you won't be sorry. I recently gave this to a friend because I no longer use chemical sunscreens.
I bought this sunscreen because I was looking for a dry touch sunscreen with antioxidants and this totally fit the bill! It goes on nice and creamy and the finish is very smooth - not tacky at all. This is an excellent sunscreen for the beach/with beach clothing.
I was reapplying this all day, but when I went to take off the cardigan I was wearing during the evening, I found little bits of the sunscreen which had rolled off my skin onto my black cardigan. A little unpleasant and surprising - but nothing horrible - just something to keep in mind. I would have liked a higher SPF as well.
