This made my oily skin much oilier. And my skin still turned red after being in the sun for only an hour, so I'm skeptical of the sun protection this product provides. For the price, I'd also expect packaging that doesn't look so cheap, and a pump to dispense the product would have been nice.

I use this moisturizer/sunscreen daily. I love it. It doesn't cause acne and it is a great base for my mineral powder and blush. This product is absorbed quickly and never feels heavy or sticky.

I have very oily skin and found this sunscreen to make it oilier (the SPF 40 is even worse). I shelled out big bucks to use other Sage products to help my acne prone/oily skin, just to have this product counteract the oil control. I always wondered why the formulation wasn't changed, especially since this company's original specialty was acne prone skin. Pretty much any other sunscreen I've tried was better than this one.

I love this sunscreen. It very lightly moisturizes my face as well although it doesn't claim to do that. makeup goes very well over it. it doesn't have a sunscreen smell at all. i only have to use a tiny pea sized amount for my whole face. it does work because my face hasnt gotten tan even though its summer. now i just have to remember to put it on my neck otherwise ill look strange

Good sunscreen...doesn't break me out, provides good coverage, a little goes a long way. I have yet to find anything really better...I do alternate between this and Linda Sy's Zinco...I have recently been diagnosed with rosacea so I need a good physical sunscreen...this isn't it. But before I had the rosacea this worked really well on my oily, acne-prone skin. Just follow the instructions in application...apply to a damp face, put a pea size amount on the tip of each finger...dab on your face...blend...let soak in...and wa-la! You're good to go! You could use this pretty well under make-up too...does have sheen to it so a light dusting of powder helps with that. Good product...4 lippies.

I was still in search for a good SPF for my extremely oily, acne prone skin - when I stumbled upon Sage SPF reviews here in MUA. I thought I give it a try and I ended up purchased the Oily Trial Kit (which include the SPF 25 in it) and I love it! My skin loves Sage treatment & it never feels smoother than it is now (please see my reviews for other Sage products). I found Sage SPF is not oily at all, nor added shine to my skin, which I love. A pea size will do for my whole face, and another pea size for my neck. Just another great item from Sage!

This was my first introduction to Sage products back in the Summer of '01. I used it for a few years and liked it. The texture is thick, but I was able to blend it on with out much of a white cast and it controlled oil and helped my m/u last longer. Then when I purchased another new bottle, my skin began breaking out in cysts and clogged pores. I didn't imagine it could possibly be the Sage, as my skin use to love it, but sadly it is. I'm thinking it's the Titanium Dioxide, but not 100% sure. Since May '05 I've been wearing Clinique's Repairwear SPF 15 Lotion daily (contains Zinc Oxide, no Titanium). I'm 3/4 the way through my 2nd bottle and my skin has never looked better. (please see my review for more info.) So if you're acne-prone, I would be careful with the Sage SPF. I do LOVE her other products, which are my HGs! (see my notepad for the list)

I am 44 years old and still break out when under stress. The Sage Line is the only line that I can confidently say continues to make my skin look healthy and radiant. People comment on how healthy my skin looks.
The SPF is the only one out there that does its job well and I don't get tiny pimples/blackeheads from.
I've been using this line for about 4 years and I believe its the best. Some of the products are a bit on the high side. However, I would rather spend money on a product that works then spend a little bit here, more there, experimenting with products that disappoint. The Neutrogena line is a relatively expensive line and breaks my skin out. Oil of Olay is less expensive but I don't like the product consistency and it does not live up to its claims for my skin.

Putting sunscreen on a damp face decreases the potency of the product, not impressed and do not want to get skin cancer. There are better ones out there for less, like Kiss My Face Face Factor SPF 30 for $9 to $10.

I don't want to jinx myself, but Sage's sunscreen is honestly the only brand of sunscreen that I trust my very sensitive/acne-prone/finicky/oily skin with. When I religiously wore it under my makeup during my summer job a year or so ago, it was a dream: easy to apply, traceless under makeup, didn't cause excess oil or breakouts (thank GOD), and protected my skin even in the harshest rays. The bottle itself wasn't of the highest quality, and the lettering wore off after about a week's use, but I didn't care. It did its job and didn't break me out. Thumbs up from this girl!

I used this for several years without any problems, but find that I can no longer use it ... it now leaves my skin feeling taut and very itchy. I have no idea why this stopped working for me, but it saddens me because it had always worked well at keeping me from getting tan and/or sunburned. Best of all, it never seemed to contribute to any major breakouts (I used it in conjunction with Sage's Extra Strength Corrective Grains, which contains benzoyl peroxide).
Don't know if my skin has just changed since I've gotten older or if I've developed a sensitivity to one of the ingredients (maybe the silicone or one of the chemical sunscreens?), but if you aren't particulary sensitive to most ingredients, I would recommend this product. I don't know how stable it is, but it worked well enough for me and it wasn't greasy and didn't leave a white cast. For my purposes, that was pretty good.
Pricey (like all Sage products) but not any more costly then some of the high end department store or european brands.

I like Sage Facial Shampoo and Corrective Grains, and I liked this SPF at first, but it is sort of greasy and it did give me a few zits. I prefer Kiehl's Oil Free SPF right now because it has never made me break out, yet it can make your skin feel a bit tight.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I really like the SPF, but for the price, I would rather purchase Eucerin extra protective moisture lotion.
It worked well under makeup, and I have no complaints about it as a product. Works just like it should!
If it weren't for the price!

Iíve been using Sage spf 25 for over 2 years now with excellent results. I have oily, acne prone skin on the sensitive side and this is the only spf that doesnít break me out. Due to the thickness of the product, I had to tinker with the amount to spread the product evenly. I lightly spray Evian on my face and then apply the Sage to my face, neck, and decolletage area and then apply the Sage. The Sage spf keeps my sensitive skin from being burned. I even use this product on my eye area and it doesnít sting. During most of the year I can just use the Sage spf as my moisturizer. But during cooler winter months I layer the Sage over Olay Total Effects Night Firming Lotion. Iíve occasionally strayed from this and bought other spfs from the drugstore or Sephora, but they always make me break out or burn my skin. My only rant is that it can be difficult to squeeze the product out of the plastic bottle. Also, I wish I could buy this product at a local store like ULTA, but Iíll deal with online ordering since this is a tried and true product

Broke me out horribly, plus I developed severe melasma the summer I tried these products from the combo of high & acids and shoddy sun protection I used it exactly as directed, but frankly this product just isn't a good UVA blocker. But by far, the worst part was that when I called Barbara, I got full-on attitude, like it was my fault that her products did this to me and she even accused me of 'sneaking' and using another product that was causing the problem. Using her products has left me with permanent discoloration, based on her bad advice and my stupidity at believing that every other sunscreen recommendation was wrong and that her teeny pea size dot of lotion over a wet face with only 1 active ingredient would protect my acid-fragile skin. Needless to say, I would advise steering clear of this line.

This is a wonderful facial sunscreen- particulary for those that are acne-prone. I use it under my makeup with no problems, the texture is great, the price is good, and its never caused any breakouts. If it came in a big enough container I'd use it on my whole body. Make sure you follow the directions and put it on a damp face!

In the lengthy instruction pamphlet I received with my try-me pack of Sage products, the instructions on how to apply this sunscreen is a bit strange....your skin must be slighty moist or damp, and then you take a small amount of sunscreen (a pea-sized dollop), and spread it on. It looks like a big wet mess, but surprisingly after spreading it on a bit and letting it settle, it absorbed into my skin after 5-10 minutes. I applied the product when my skin was dry just to see the difference, and weirdly enough, it didn't sink in as easily, and it left a sticky film behind. I tried to use this for ~2wks, and I didn't quite like the finish...even when applying to moist skin. It just was too dewy overall.

I've been using a sample of this for the past few weeks and I LOVE this stuff, I even like it better than the coveted La Mer SPF18 and DDF Organic Sunscreen SPF30.. seriously! Absolutely no white cast (DDF leaves a slight white cast) and leaves a beautiful non-greasy finish (La Mer leaves skin a bit shiny). Hasnt broken me out or iritated my skin and works well underneath my foundation (Chanel Vitalumiere Fluide)
Age: Unknown Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
As much as I enjoy most of the SAGE products, my face is an oily wreck after an hour of applying this. Yes I've followed the directions, yes I've asked for their guidance and they are so smart and helpful at Sage. But with my combination / oily skin, this was a mess. Conversely, my sister who has dry skin loves this stuff.

I think I'd buy this again. Sage is expensive and not all their products are worth it, but I think this is. A good springtime moisturizer - it's heavy, but dries to a reasonably matte finish and doesn't leave a white residue. Kind of heavy for under full makeup, but works alright under concealer. A good sunscreen for a day when you're going to be outside alot.
