This one is the best mineral sunscreen I've found. I do have to say though that I wear very little foundation, and not every day -only a very light dusting of everyday minerals about once a week, so I don't know how this would work under "actual" foundation. Works fine under blush, eyeshadow, highlighter, etc. It has a really nice cosmetic effect on its own- definitely illuminating. It is tricky to apply, more of a pressing/dabbing technique than rubbing. Mostly, it works well, looks good and does not irritate my sensitive skin or break me out.

I wanted this to work on my skin, however, it's horrible especially if you wear makeup and have sensitive skin/oily skin-combo skin. It will make your makeup look ashy over it. Secondly, it made me break out badly! It took weeks to get back to normal! I recommend this for people with perfect skin who do not wear makeup specifically foundation.

I love Boscia's Cleansing oil so I was excited to try this. I was sure I would love it also, but I don't. It comes out pretty thick and is a light pink color. Even though it is thick it spreads pretty easily over my face. But, and there is a huge but, it feels grainy and kinda hurts to rub in kinda like rubbing in an exfoliator. Plus it makes me break out every time I use it. I was sad it didn't work for me and I will not be buying it again.

I think this is a great physical sunblock that I enjoy using. The scent is powder soft and it goes on with a matte feel. It's not drying and has a slight pink tint, presumably to counteract white cast. This seems to work, unlike many physical blocks I've used. I have downgraded one lippie, because it contains alumina (one of the last ingredients) and I'm not too sure about the safety of that. I have applied this with Boscia SPF 15 lotion (which I really think is great also, but not strong enough SPF), and they work great together. I have finally settled on this over MyChelle since this is not sticky.
