I love this sunscreen. I was trying just serum and suncreen but now winter has hit I need to layer. It sounds mad but I don't feel this on my combo skin at all. I highly recommend. I also use the oil free matifyer on my t zone and love that combo.

No bad. I burn really easily so I am always looking for a sunblock to wear under my makeup. Even though the foundation I use has SPF, I need more coverage then most people.
This smells better then most and absorbs nicely into my skin. I did find it a little too heavy for me, but not as bad as some I have tried. Quite expensive though...

I bought this after watching Lisa Eldridge's review on sunblocks. I was torn between the peter thomas roth, in the end I opted for this.
I am in two minds about this. For an oil free sun screen it applies quite greasy, especially in comparison to the neutrogena ultra-sheer dry touch. However, after a few minutes it sinks in well and feels light weight.
I think it does work as my mother has been complimenting me on there is reduced pigmentation of my face and the skin does look more refined (I have quite a few freckles over my nose).
I am quite pleased but at this point would not repurchase as am keen to try others. I think the problem is although I like this, I feel certain there is better out there!

I really dislike this sunblock. I dealt with it the first day,but the second day is enough for me and I can't use this anymore. Luckily I got a generous sample, so I didn't waste my money on this. This sunblock BURNS my skin and makes my eyes itchy! Secondly,it's GREASY! My face felt sticky and looked very shiny with it on. Thirdly, it makes my makeup PILL! I apply foundation over this, and some area sort of peel off. Yuck! Definitely wouldn't waste my $ on this.

Reviewing the SPF30 version.
For me, this sunscreen did not leave a white residue behind, and it also didn't appear shiny on my face.
It isn't drying on your skin, and it's light enough to wear under makeup.
It didn't cause any breakouts for me, and came off easily with my cleanser.
It's not a bad product, but I won't be buying it again as I've moved to physical sun care.

I attended a volleyball tournament a few weeks ago and some heavily mulleted man was passing out testers of this product. (FYI, I'm reviewing the spf 30 oil-free version). Cut to today when I was feeling especially ambitious and took a 5 mile run. All was well on the trail until my sweat started mixing with whatever God awful concoction the folks at Murad mixed into this product - honestly, I thought my eye was about to burn out of my head. Desperate to salvage my corneas from further harm, I tried to rub the "sting" out of them, only to discover that my fingertips were COVERED in the WHITE sunscreen. If you have any desire to keep at least ONE of your eyes in tact, I'd say to continue the search for a sunscreen that doesn't cause visual damage.

While Murad's Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30 worked- I didn't get sunburned when I tried it out- it is absolutely not a product I would ever use again. Maybe I made a mistake applying it directly after washing my face, but I've never had a problem doing that with other sunscreens I've tried. The reason I'd never use this again (unless I wanted to test if I got the same reaction) is because for 20 minutes, this product itched and burned like crazy. So bad that all I could think about was the agony I was in. Ever a glutton for punishment, I pushed through and once I started doing yardwork, I was eventually able to forget the irritation. I'm glad this sunblock protected me from the sun, but wow, I don't think I'm going to put myself through that burning and itching again.
I noticed that Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30 had aniba rosaeodora (rosewood) wood oil and geranium maculatum oil listed in the ingredients, and those sounded familiar to me. Sure enough, Philosophy's Purity Made Simple has the same two ingredients right next to each other on its label, though they're higher up in the formulation. My reaction with Purity was more of an allergic reaction, while my reaction with this sunscreen was more of a surface itching issue, but I can't think of any other ingredients that could be giving me problems. I've had orange oil on my face before and never felt like my skin was burning. I'm possibly going to go out on a limb suggesting this, but if you had a bad reaction to Purity Made Simple like I did, I'd advise passing on this Murad sunscreen.

I am in love with Murad Oil-Free Sunblock SPF 30. This stuff is fabulous. Forget the icky-greasy feeling you know and hate about sunblock. This stuff loves you AND your makeup and won't be a hassle to either. It has the consistency of a toner- just rub it on and it cools and dries within seconds leaving nothing behind but sun protection. Ideal for people with acne-prone skin who can't stand slathering on regular, gooey sunblock. Pricey, but that's the cost of quality.

I got this in sample from Sephora. I decided to give it a try since it is "oil free". I have used a lot of sunscreen, and they turn out too oily and irritating for me. The sunscreen comes in a clear gel form, which is different from typical sunscreen. When I apply on my face, there's a cool sensation (alcohol is listed as 5th ingredient). And then, there's nothing I see that would give the claim "oil free" any truth value. My face still looked oily like other sunscreens. When my co-worker saw me, she said "why is your face so oily?"
Good thing this is only a one-application sample.

I keep going back to this oil-free sunblock. First of all, it offers me the minimum SPF I will put on my face -- SPF 30. Secondly, you don't need that much product to spread it over your face and neck and the top part of your decollete. It absorbs well, doesn't leave that sunblock grease slick over your face, and I can put on my makeup over it. The only downside is that I don't believe this is waterproof/sweatproof. Doesn't cause me to break out, which is awesome because many other sun protection products do.

I like this. It keeps my dry skin hydrated and adds a nice glow. It doesn't make me break out either.

I have have acne-prone skin that tends to be oily, especially in the warmer months. This sunscreen is pretty good. So far I like it and it hasn't caused breakouts. Goes on really nice and after I pat it it it's not sticky, shiny or oily like other sunscreens.

This sunscreen has a lotion-consistency. It doubles as a moisturizer for my combination skin. However, I find that I must set the sunscreen with powder because the sunscreen can move on my skin. This may be the reason why it blends into my skin much more easily than the Clinique City Block sunscreen. I am listing the ingredients in my post so you can identify the product.

Definitely the best sunscreen for oily T-zone skin. Not greasy at all and it never made my skin break-out.
Somehow, my skin loves the color of this stuff too; it blends in easily and makes my skin even.
Will certainly repurchase on my next visit to the US!

This product has made my face break out terribly. I purchased two weeks and I have not changed any other part of my skin care routine so I am sure the Murad Sunblock was the cause. It has clogged my pores, created blackheads, and has produced an overall oily feel to my face. No way would I repurchase!

(I'm reviewing the Sheer Tint version). This is a cosmetically elegant sunscreen that does not clog my pores. I've tried Shisheido, Anthelios, L'Oreal Solar Expertise, and on and on. Murad does not leave my skin feeling like I layed a greasy film on it. My skin feels smooth and soft when this is on - I forget I have sunscreen on! The tint happens to be perfect for my light olive complexion and evens out my blotchiness. I have started using this instead of foundation! It doesn't offer a lot of coverage but does even out skin tone so with a little concealor, I don't even need foundation!
The only reason I took off a lippie is because I was told that the sunscreen ingredients are not powerful enough. HOWEVER, I have melasma and use Tazorac and hydroquinone, which make my skin photosensitive, and find that this provides adequate everyday coverage. I would probably use Anthelios and suffer the clogged pores and itchiness if I were going to the beach, but for everyday use, this is my HG!!!!

Smells like suntan oil!! and it doesnt absorb quickly enough for me to apply makeup. I dont have much luck with Murad's products.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
Really liked this sunscreen. It's tinted and doesn't make my combo sensitive acne prone skin oiler or break out. It's moisturizing and gives decent coverage with a nice texture. Although it's only spf 15, the sun protection is enough for me. Only reason why I will not be repurchasing is because there is a pinkish brown tint which does not blend into my yellow skin color once applied. Otherwise this would be probably the best sunscreen for me.
