HG! This is a gorgeous, ultra light and silky smooth sunscreen that absorbs seamlessly into the skin and does not leave any sort of film. It is $45 (Australian) for 100mL which is actually pretty reasonable considering it is from Mecca who are charging $115 for 30mL of Nars skincare products....
Anyway, I have very sensitive combination skin and I find that this acts as a great moisturiser. I wore it today instead of a moisturiser and it did not make my T-zone greasy or provide insufficient hydration for my dry areas. Best of all, no allergic reaction whatsoever! No break outs, too! I have not yet seen if this delivers a whitish caste under a flash, but I will update this review when I do. Also it says on the box that has a "non-whitening formula".
This sunscreen also works just fine under my make up as it is water based (and I use water based foundation). Can I just reiterate how light the texture is?! This is a beautiful, beautiful product and I'm so grateful that the lovely, helpful and empathetic MUA at Mecca recommended it. Here are the active ingredients (I could not find the full list): Octocrylene 5% w/w, Phenylbenzimidazole, Sulfonic Acid 2% w/w, Oxybenzone 1.5% w/w, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane 1% w/w. PRESERVATIVES: Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxybenzoates. Also on the box it claims to include "hyaluronic acid, pomegranate extract and vitamin E".
P.S. I love the smell of this sunscreen!! I completely forgot to add this bit in when I initially wrote the review. It smells so fresh and clean, I can't describe it any better than that though.

I suffer from cystic acne (which is more or less under control these days). I need to use sunscreen everyday especially since I live in Australia.
When I was looking for a sunscreen, I was really scared of picking one that would cause me to break out, I didn't want to end up with a white cast and I wanted something that would absorbs really fast.
This sunscreen is amazing. Its hydrating, non-greasy and light. It absorbs really well and really fast. I have no problems applying makeup over it. Smells lovely and does not cause breakouts (for me at least).
It is $45 for 100ml (3.52oz) but it is worth it. If you are undecided go to the mecca website and read the reviews.
