skin type - oily, sensitive breakout prone - 46
I had received a sample tube of this sunscreen from the Clinique counter. I use the Clinique City Block 40 with no problems. (It can be drying in the winter.)
I was impressed that it was just zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as active ingredients for the sunscreen. It went on nicely; blended well. Looks nice on the skin as just a sunscreen - no greasy sheen. I think there might be a slight tint to the product as I am quite fair and it looked like I had a little colour.(Maybe the iron oxides; common ingredient in mineral makeup.
I applied and went to work. My Mineral makeup went over it nicely. (As I am a MMU addict my sunscreen must be compatiable with my MMU) I got to work and my face felt like it flushed. I have reactive skin but I have NOT reacted to a sunscreen. (Lots of them I don't like for various reasons. I have tried lots.) I got home from work and washed my face. My face was blotchy so I applied my Rosacure lotion (see review) after a gentle cleanse. It has taken a couple of days for my face to settle down. I was hoping this would be a soothing sunscreen as my face does well with zinc oxide in general (other sunscreens and mineral makeup)
See review below for full ingredients. Long list of ingredients and I really don't know what the problem ingredient is. I recommend trying to get a sample first. Also apply in a small area first. Don't do what I did; full face of it then out for the day! I am sure for most people this would be a nice everyday sunscreen.
