Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Hair: Brown, , Eyes: Brown

I have combo acne prone skin which is under control now that I use retin A and take spironolactone. What I like about this sunscreen: it doesn't sting (my skin is more sensitive now); it's more matte than LPR Anthelios SX SPF 15 (I was using this before the weather got warm & humid) but not as drying as Shiseido lotion--I found this too drying; high spf and reasonable PPD; it's sweat resistant; and it's a good base for makeup. What I don't like: the price is high--$33 for 2 oz. at Sephora; I wish the PPD was higher; it's harder to remove (although I find Clinque Take Off the Day Balm works well for this); I get a few clogged pores if I used this for several consecutive days. I also find it does leave a slight white cast. It's fragranced and that doesn't bother me but I can see how it would be irritating to others. However, compared to the other drug store high spf and sweat resistent sunscreens I've used (Neutrogena Dry Touch spf 70 and HT Oil Free Sensitive spf 50) I prefer this and it gives me fewer problems.
