My sunscreen goals are to protect from freckles since i spot very easily and that it be cosmetically elegant enough for it not to be (too) greasy or make a light dusting of powder clump up. This meets those goals but it does take a little while to rub in. But an extra 20 seconds is worth it since this totally absorbs and really protects me from freckles. I like that it contains a mix of chemical and physical sunscreens. This is all i wear on weekends and is better than any LRP sunscreen i have tried. Its also less greasy than shiseido ones and dries semi matt. Give this a go, for the price if you don't like it you can always use on your body.

This is the third time I have been lured by advertising to try a Bioderma sunscreen and the third time I have regretted my purchase. There must be something in the combo of ingredients they use that make my skin look greasy and blotchy. Putting powder on top helps some but I still am left feeling like the product just does not work for me. This may be a wonderful sunscreen but I think I am finally cured of my Bioderma disease. I won't be trying any more of their sun products again.

This cream may be a little too heavy for those with oily skin because it is thick and rich. I think that's what makes it water resistant because it stays on despite dabbings with a hanky to remove perspiration from my face. It is comparable to Institut Esthedern"s photo reverse at a fraction of the cost (14 pounds versus 55 pounds). It takes a while to absorb and it leaves no white cast. I find that it is effective even when I apply a flat quarter's worth so I don't have to follow the 1 teaspoon rule (a dollop the size of a quarter is too much even for my combination dry-skin. I look like I applied Crisco on my face!)


i've already finished my first tube and repurchased another.

ME: I work outdoors in Greece during the summer, so I need all the protection I can get. My favourite I had ever found prior to this was LRP's spf 40 spray Dermo Peds.

As for the ss, it leaves a very, very slight sticky/sheeny finish and may enhance pores, but once I've applied loose powder (at the moment Laura Mercier's), I'm super matte all day.
I really, really like it, especially the high ppd and so will re-purchase.
