I agree with the comments regarding the unpleasantly tacky, greasy texture - therefore I take off one lippie - but this has been my daily sunscreen of choice for the past two years because it has been the ONLY sunscreen I have ever tried that: 1. worked and 2. did not make me break out. (My acne medication makes me extermely sensitive to sun damage.) Therefore I will continue to put up with the greasiness and slightly white cast, which is all the more unpleasant due to my natural oiliness. However this turns out not to be that big of a problem once I apply mineral foundation and then blot with toilet paper throughout the day (which I would have to do anyway). I should also note that I do not use an additional mosturizer. As for the packaging, I don't mind the twist top (it's easy enough to wipe off), and the large size lasts for months. I will continue to order this from Europe.

I have both the "adult" version and the Specially For Kids version. The kids' version is fragrance- and colourant free, while the other version is slightly ivory coloured - not sure if it's just for decoration or if it's for cosmetic purposes. Both lotions are excellent in terms of protecting the skin, although the kiddie version is a bit greasier and also gives you a whitish cast. I'm very photosensitive and get severe rashes even from halogen lights indoors, so I use high SPF everyday all year-round. These two are some of the best I've tried, along with Lancôme's Sôleil Ultra SPF 60, L'Oreal's Solar Expertise SPF 30 non-greasy gel-creme and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 45.
I hate the bottle, though - very stupid!

This is the sunscreen I wear. Very reliable at protecting the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. I don't mind the scent but it can turn into a sour smell by the end of the day, which doesn't occur if I don't wear it. I wish it wasn't so greasy on my skin. When will they ever make a sunscreen that isn't greasy?
Looks just awful without powder to blot down the shine especially around the outer eye area. Hate the way it feels if I'm wearing a tee shirt and then put a cardigan over the top of it, too tacky. In actual fact Soltan, Boots own sunscreen with the highest UVA available has a brilliant texture, not greasy at all, quite perfect but I just don't trust it as much as L'oreal.
Designwise, the top with a hole in it that opens as you twist it is not hygenic if you want to just fling it in your handbag, I would much prefer a normal top that is completely detachable and then can be securely clicked down.

Almost HG, but a little tacky and 'off' feeling for that. The base is octocrylene, but unfortunately I tossed the package... no ingred list. I purchased because it's one of the few, apart from La Roche Posay, that skips octinoxate (this irritates my skin). So in sum, this wears comfortably, isn't too shiny (compared with LRP Anthelios anyhow - powder helps), and offers excellent long-term protection. *edit* ingredients for L’Oreal Solar Expertise SPF25 (best I could find): aqua, octocrylene, glycerin, propylene glycol, C12-15 alkyl benzoate, cyclopentasiloxane, titanium dioxide, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane (avobenzone), isohexadecane, stearic acid, potassium cetyl phosphate, vp/eicosene copolymer, phenoxyethanol, peg-100 stearate, glyceryl stearate, drometrizole trisiloxane (Mexoryl XL), triethanolamine, dimethicone, aluminum hydroxide, methylparaben, ethylhexyloxyglycerin, acrylates/ C10-30 alkyl acrylates crosspolymer, terephthalylidene dicamphor sulfonic acid (Mexoryl SX), glycine soja, tocopherol, disodium edta, xanthan gum, butylparaben, ethylparaben, vitreoscilla ferment, isobutylparaben, propylparaben, Ci 15985, Ci 16035, parfum. C17427/1.After trying LRP's fluide extreme, have to revise the "comfortable" claim. While Solar Expertise doesn't burn or irritate, it feels tight and odd after some hours. I wash it off first thing in the evening. I'd recommend both for the protection, but LRP for sensitive skin.

I have combination skin and i found the SPF 60 milk better than the SPF 60 cream both performance wise and price wise(150ml milk sells for almost the same as 50ml cream). This jas Mexoryl XL + S and a superior sun protection. It didn't break me out and is less shiny and way less greasy than Anthelios XL in my opinion. I have tried Lancome UV50 too but that is expensive for the same performance as that of Loreal Solar Expertise SPF 60 milk. If i use a matte foundation i get away with the shine too.I usually show a tan in one hour of sun exposure but after applying this i went for a 7 hour long drive some time back in the sun and i didn't tan one bit!! It works like a champ !
So i'd continue buying this until i find a better matte Sunscreen with Mexoryl XL.I took off one lipstick because it is not totally matte and i need to blot off excess oil off my face after three hours of application.

I didn't like this at all! I used the faceblock, SPF 60.
Despite claiming to be non-comedogenic and non-greasy, I found that it DID make me break out and it WAS greasy!
It was hard to apply, I couldn't glide it over my face and hence ended up dragging my skin constantly; and it left a yucky cakey-white look!
It is also far too overpriced, with tacky orange and white packaging.
It promises, but doesn't deliver, so I will certainly not be buying this again!

This is a great product. Mexoryl SX, XL, Parsol and titanium dioxide are the active UVA ingredients. It has about 50% less white cast then Ambre Solaire Kids and is much less shiny. It has a pleasant fresh fragance, no chemical smell/taste like other Mexoryl sunscreens. The only annoying thing is the packaging. I'd highly recommend this sunscreen.It has a four out of four UVA rating.
