Finally - a sunscreen over 15 that doesn't irritate my skin! Even the last bits of my beloved (and now discontinued) Shiseido lotion make my skin flaky and red. I am fair and this doesn't give my skin a white cast. It feels light, too. I wear it all day and it lasts, unlike others I've tried that leave me unprotected by lunchtime.
However, I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because I do need to blend quickly and thoroughly to avoid white smudges around my nose (and even then, I occasionally miss a spot and find it later).

Chalky white does explain this sunscreen perfectly! CeraVe has some nerve to call this inVisible Zinc! Not only that, where did they come up with an SPF50 rating? I have other sunscreens with higher % of zinc and titanium with an SPF30 rating. And good luck washing this off. I used a glycolic wash on my arms and legs and it still left a film behind. CeraVe needs to reformulate this and make it more user friendly.

It is my own fault for not listening to other reviews , but this is terrible. It leaves a very noticeable white cast that does not blend well and rubs everywhere. Is there fall out? there is fall out galore ! Ugh .
The formula is a mixed bag:They include benzyl alcohol close up top on the list and, Methylisothiazoline-- two irritants one of which is not recommended for leave in products. The only good things about this formulation is it has three antioxidants and two possible skin cell communicators including Niacinimide and retinal palmitate. They admittedly did a good job of adding in oatmeal as an anti-irritant , some ceramides as skin identical ingredients, and a tiny bit of humectants.
'CeraVe' usually does a good job, and I had high expectations for this sunscreen, but it's back to the drawing board I know 'CeraVe' can do better. Use this at your own risk! If you want a mineral sunscreen "Eucerin' has one, and some of 'CeraVe's' other sunblocks don't seem as bad, but they are not perfect.

I have very oily complexion and this lotions doesn't make me shine!, it stays matte and don´t irritate my face.
I put some dots in my entire face and then I spread the lotions on my face
I don´t see any white or chalky color in my face!

Yes, this product leaves a slight white cast but as long as you put your makeup over it, then it's not noticeable. I'm pale though so it doesn't bother me. It's more like a thick cream instead of a lotion but as long as your rub it in it's not a big deal. High spf, Zinc, acts as a primer. I like it.

I really wanted to love this. it's really the first truly matte sunscreen I've ever tried. it goes on pretty smooth but that is where the love ends..... this is NOT invisible in any sense of the word. even if you rub it in for a few minutes, it still leaves a very noticeable white cast on your face. I tried putting on much less, still white. I tried foundation on top, still white. I tried mixing with another moisturizer..... still white.
and God forbid you sweat..... it will show up. my son told me " there is lotion coming out of you" when he saw it. I am being generous and giving it a 2, it is matte and not greasy at all. unfortunately you won't be able to wear this outdoors where people can see you.

White face! Dry, sticky, white-face. I do not like this product at all because, although the package claims "invisible zinc", it is not invisible and left my face looking ghostly pale. This product also made my face very dry looking. I put my usual lightweight foundation on top of it and that was a mistake because it turned my face very white, dry and cakey. Three things that I don't want my face to look like. I will return to Walmart and get my $13.47 (for 2 oz.) refunded.

I love, love, love this. Any lotions or foundations that contain traditional sunscreens tend to break my face out and I hate the sunscreen smell. But having a previous melanoma on my face, I'm under strict "wear sunscreen at all times" orders. This sunscreen finally does exactly what I need perfectly.
It has no odor and it does not break out my skin. I could cheer I'm so happy.
Some people indicate that it is gloopy and leaves a white film. It can if you splat a bunch in your palm and just smear it on. If I'm wearing it alone, I do small areas at the time and it blends in quite well. What I normally do, however, is mix it with my foundation in the palm of my hand first (I get the foundation a shade darker than I want so I can mix it with the sunscreen or standard lotion and have it come out the shade I want) and then spread that on my face. It works a charm.

First of all, my skin breaks out very easiIly, and I don't like to wear slot of makeup. Though a lot of people are saying that it goes on ghostly white...it could but what I do, since it is thick, I do a little at a time and I don't look white at all. Then it will soak in and not look white. Also, when they say oil-free they meant it-that's why I think it's so hard to spread of your face, and is the reason why I do it in sections with a little at a time. I don't need powder on top of this, it goes on so oil-free that I don't shine all day, even atfter reapplying it in the middle of the day. It literally keeps me shine free. But remember iF you try this, you have to do it in sections, so little sunscreen dots on your forehead, cheeks, chin,and nose, then gently rub it in. If you take a big heap of it you will definitely turn white without a doubt. After you rub it in, you can do it again depending on how much you want. The reviewers that gave this a terrible review probably rubbed alot at one time. But this is a truly amazing sunscreen that is effective, keeps my skin feeling and looking great, and is only $15. Please try It, and take my advice too...it will change your view on it. I promise. it's amazing!

I was excited to see this new product by Cerave just prior to going on a Carribean cruise. However, it is not at all as advertised -- goes on white and thick and is difficult to blend in. It also balls up if you keep rubbing or try to put makeup over it. I felt it was such a bad product that I couldn't even use it on my body, so I returned it.
