********This is not the Topix SPF 50 "SUNSCREEN CREAM" by Replenix. This is a different product. Please see my "ALTERNATES" section for more details.***********


PROS: Very moisturizing. Leaves me quite dewy. Basically no scent (I hate fragrance.) Product from a very reputable source and has lots of anti-aging ingredients like antioxidants, green tea, polyphenols, and caffeine (I'm very sensitive to caffeine, even in creams, but this doesn't affect me at all). Most with any chemical sunscreens create redness for my sensitive skin/rosacea. This does NOT. SPF 50 means I am actually protected against the sun WITHOUT the following: greasiness, product balling up on my skin, white cast, thickness that settles in my wrinkles/pores!!!(But see "cons" too.) The price is very reasonable for the quality, and a little goes a long way. There are no parabens and no alcohol and no fragrance and no oil. Wears great under makeup. Does not ball up on skin. I love the slight tint (thought I would hate it.) I'm N10-15 (leaning to NC) and the tint ends up fine on me.


CONS: Those with greasy skin or who don't want any dewiness left on skin may prefer the other versions mentioned in alternates. Also, those with cool tones may not like the tint in this. Not the cheapest in the world, but the value is excellent for that price. Also it's a con that I have to order it and can't get it at a local drugstore, etc.


PURCHASING TIPS: I can get this cheaper at places like skinmedix.com


APPLICATION TIPS: I adore wearing this as sort of a primer, put on right before my foundation. Then I sort of rub my foundation into it, if that makes sense. (I don't like a heavy coat of foundation.)


ALTERNATES: There is a "Sheer Physical" SPF 50 cream, but I tried both and prefer the extra moisture of this moisturizer for my dry skin. The other one really mattifies me A LOT, to the point of showing my wrinkles off. There's even a Sheer Physical spray version of the spf 50, but it definitely makes my dry skin too "matte."

Trader Joe's Enrich SPF15 is moisturizing but not greasy at all. When I need 30 or above, I use Hawaiaan Tropic's Silk Hydration or some name like that (but it can clog me if I use it for more than a few days in a row, so I only use it when I'm going to be in the sun a lot that day).
