Got this as a sample in an order of CU3 and used it for 4 days, in and out, this summer.

Active ingredients combine chemical and physical: Octinoxate (6.5%) and titanium (3.5%).

This really reminds me of Sofina's Perfect UV, so I like the texture and powdery feel after it's applied. It has a tint, but not like a MU...more like a tinted moisturizer. I think the buff color is there to hide the white titanium, but it doesn't leave a color on your face.

This does have a lot of silicones, so you should remove with oil or a MU remover, or you'll break out if you're acne-prone.

I rated cost based on a search I did, which showed 1oz ranging from $14 to $30 here in the US. I think that's reasonable for something versatile and MU ready.

I wouldn't buy this because it requires an extra step in my routine (oil remover), but I do like it for occassional use.

I bought this as a potential replacement for my HG sunscreen Bioderma Photoderm AR SPF 50+ which cost $35 for 1oz vs $25 for 4oz of the Ti-Silc Sheer SPF 45. This product is for normal to dry skin and has several types of 'cones, sunflower oil, castor oil and squalane listed as inactive ingredients. These indgredients makes this great for my super dry winter skin. In the summer when my skin is more hydrated, but still dry, this felt a little too slick and it often did not dry down leaving me looking shiny which is problem I never have. If your skin is normal or at all oily think this product will leave you feeling much more shiny than you want. The sun protection is very good and the tint is light enough for my pale skin. Still like the Bioderma much more but for the winter this is a good money saving substitute. It does have a slight smell but it is not overpowering.

HG facial sunscreen for outdoor activities. I have rosacea, and this covers the redness and really evens out the skintone without being as thick as makeup. I dampen a makeup sponge to apply it so it goes on smoothly and doesn't cake. It has a little bit of a sheen, but it's a lot better than other sport sunscreens, and really protects well. Also, it hasn't broken out my acne prone skin.

I would NOT, however, recommend it be worn on the neck. It is hard to wash out of clothing.
