This is what i use. The best that i've ever come across!!!
UPDATE: ok...i maybe have to eat my words on this one because i think this may clog the pores on the sides of my face a little. I deleted this product from my routine and the clogged pores vanished. What's weird is that the clogged pores never turned into full on pimples ..they just made my skins texture look all bumpy like I was gonna have an acne attack at any minute or something. My skin looked congested like 24/7. Dang..that sucks. But i may be wrong. Be careful if your acne prone or just prone to clogged pores. Off to try MD Formulations!!
UPDATE: MD Formulations sucks.

Update: Either I haven't found a compatible moisturizer to wear underneath this or I can't wear this under makeup. It is too thick and makeup looks cakey.
This is the dream sunblock that I've wished for my whole life. Unfortunately, it only has SPF 30. So I wear it under my makeup on workdays when I get the least exposure to the sun. First of all, I react to all chemical blocks. This and La Roche Posay's, Lait Voulete, are the only two chemical blocks that I tolerate out of hundreds, which I've tried and returned. It really does absorb completely with no slick, slippery, greasy layer. It leaves no shine. I do recommend that you wear this with a moisturizer if you have normal to dry skin. It doesn't dry out my skin but it doesn't moisturize it either and I noticed that a well formulated serum or moisturzer that is fully absorbed by skin, makes this suncreen smoother under makeup.

i have been using this sunscreen for a couple of months now....and so far it's lived up to it's name. provides excellent protection and is not at all greasy like some of the other sunscreens i have used. my mineral make-up goes on smoothly over it. it hasn't caused me to break-out...which is excellent. since i have very oily skin, i really don't need to apply moisturizer before this. i still need to use blotting sheets during the day, but the oil is much less compared to my previous sunscreens. overall...a great product!! will definitely repurchase.

I absolutely love this sunscreen - my HG! Ones that I have used in the past have made my face feel oily, caused my makeup to come off, caked up in my eyebrows, left a white cast. I have NONE of those problems with the uber dry. It is very light, absorbs right in, and there is no scary white residue left. It makes using sunscreen under makeup easy!

Please, please if you have oily acne prone skin please go and buy this product. It was recommended by Paula Begoun (I used her own spf and it was too shiny for me) and I could not be happier. NO sheen, NO breakouts ever from this. Do not the salespeople talk you into another product. It really is uber dry - also only use on face - it is too expensive to use for all over. Expensive for face too, but this is my face.

AWESOME! Doesn't break me out, doesn't clog my pores, doesn't sweat off, easy to remove with cleanser and a washcloth, dries matte without any white cast, odorless, great packaging, UVA and UVB SPF 30, and pretty easy to find. It's $26.00 but totally worth it.

I bought this sunscreen when I read Paula Begoun's best products of 2008. She recommends sunscreens that also have extras like antioxidants. I am always looking for a sunscreen that I can wear under foundation that won't make my skin look greasy or feel heavy. I also need something that will wear well under foundation. This sunscreen truly is different from others. I was expecting it to be like Neutrogena's dry touch, which claims to feel dry, but that turned out to be greasy and uncomfortable for me. The PTR uber-dry really does not feel like sunscreen. How they do this with and SPF 30 I don't know, but if you have oily skin I recommend trying this. The price is also great because it is 26 dollars for about a 4 ounce tube. Another plus is that it does not make me itch. I wear sunscreen on my neck and chest as well and my usual Neutrogena causes small bumps and itching in those areas. I thought that was just what I had to deal with for sun protection. I am waiting to see if this will break me out because I am acne prone, and will update if it does. Try this sunscreen if you like the idea of sun protection but have been avoiding it because of a greasy, heavy feel.

I have tried sunscreens from neutrogena, bioderma, aveeno, and water babies and think this is definately the BEST one. My biggest problem with every ss I try is looking shiny, oily and like I have a white cast to my skin- I did not have any of these problems with Uber Dry SS. The only problem I do have is that the product tends to ball up and roll off my skin making it look like I have flakes. I think I was maybe using too much and am now experimenting with using less and it's not as bad. I would rather deal with "dusting" a couple flakes off my skin throughout the day than having a greasy, pale face all day. Also, I am not sure what the PPD is for this ss (I know that's important). So...this ss is not perfect but I have found it's REALLY difficult to find a good ss. I'm sticking with Uber Dry.

I agree, this sunscreen is the best! I am forbidden to leave the house without sunscreen on my face. Physical sunscreens make me break out (odd, since I successfully use mineral makeup). I used Neutrogena for years, but based on the MUA reviews, I decided to give this PTR product a shot. Perfect! Not heavy, doesn't ball up, and makes a great primer for my makeup. It's pricey, but worth every penny to me.

Verdict: The essential daily sunscreen.
Peter Thomas Roth Uber Dry Sunscreen is creamy, substantial stuff, but it goes on smooth and dry. It's incredibly effective as a sunscreen. It's definitely aided in making my skin look more even-toned. It minimizes tanning, which I like, but that may be a problem for some.
It's the facial sunscreen that I will always use--invisible, effective, all kinds of wonderful. And at $26 per bottle, it's reasonably-priced.

i love this sunscreen! Unlike the shiseido one i've used previously, it does not leave my face super shiny. It dries up so fast on your skin it's amazing! Besides, it's got a bunch of goodies like vitamins and antioxident properties in it. THe only downside is you need to wait 30 minutes for it to work

I agree with the previous two posts, this is the best chemical sunscreen. It's matte, invisible, and you can't feel you are wearing sunscreen either. I don't know how it works for dry skin, but for combination/oily skin, simply the best chemical sunscreen so far.

This is without a doubt, hands-down the best sunscreen I've ever used. I've been on the look out (for about 5 years now, no foolin'!) for a sunscreen that wouldn't feel like I'd spread beef tallow all over my face. I was admittedly skeptical about how the Uber-Dry would perform--I've been let down SO many times before!-- but was very pleasantly surprised at its performance. I was very impressed by how weightless it feels...it's never heavy or greasy on my oily skin and my makeup applies beautifully over it. I've found it works best if you work it in a bit but once you do it's pretty much undetectible. Don't let the alarmingly thick texture of this stuff scare you when it comes out of the tube...it *IS* Uber-Dry...and Uber-Fab!

The reason why I never use sunscreen - apart from being irresponsible, I know - is that I HATE to feel creamy and tacky, especially in summer. This sunscreen is amazing. Uber Dry is exactly what it is. You can slather it on and you don't feel greasy. The ONLY sunscreen I would ever use. Pricey, though.
