This product is HORRIBLE. I'm currently suffering from a skin irritation issue that this product caused. I was using Neutrogena's oil free dry touch sunblock a while ago, but unfortunately ran out and decided to try out this product. Biggest mistake ever. The other day, after showering and cleansing my skin, I applied this on my face and immediately felt a burning sensation. It also left a white cast after the application. I then spent the whole day with this thing on and came home and the burning had died down. Once I got home, I played around with Neutrogena's Oil-Free make, which contains two ingredients that the sunblock contains, and my skin immediately flared up again. I washed everything off and now my skin is red, a bit dry on the cheeks and chin, and sensitive. I found that both products contain titanium dioxide (my previous sunblock didn't contain this) and phenoxyethanol. I'm definitely going back to my previous sunblock.

I have very sensitive skin and rosacea. I have been doing research to find a sunblock to wear on my face every day. This particular one was recommended on several sites, as well as the book The Skin Type Solution written by Dr. L. Baumann, prominent dermatologist. Hey, a dermatologist suggested it for sensitive skin, so I thought it must be ok for me. Well, it's not. Shortly after applying it my skin started to tingle and turn red. Soon it was burning, hot, and quite red with the tell tale bumps of a rosacea "attack". I have tried it more than once just to be sure it was this product and not one of my other products, such as moisturizer, causing the irritation. Sadly, this sensitive skin product does not work for my sensitive skin. I do seem able to use it on my body, i.e. hands, arms, and neck. But that's not the purpose I had in mind for it. If you have rosacea, this may not be the product for you.

I'm fragrance sensitive and prone to whiteheads. Because of its physical blockers (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide), expect a pasty residue on application. It will eventually subside after a few minutes. Not water or sweat proof. Which is okay, it's easily removed by normal cleansers. It will rub off on your phone etc. with your sweat. Because of that I use this sunblock on my body. I sometimes apply on my face when I feel the need for extra sunblock coverage at the pool or beach. l recommend this product as a daily sun care product because it did not irritate my skin or cause crazy breakouts. Use this as for your sun care when you go for errands or do indoor office work. Big don't when working-out outdoors. May not be the best sunscreen during the hot summers but still better sun care product, price wise, over the rest of the chemical based sunscreen sold in stores. Better sunscreen than the baby sunblocks.

I use this sunscreen everyday before putting foundation on. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. I can't use sunscreen with anything but titanium dioxide in it so this was perfect. I don't use a moisturizer during the day because this product is moisturizing enough for me. Only one problem, i can't seem to find it anymore????
Edit: Stopped using this because it was breaking out my face.

Great stuff. Yes, it's white, but if you're super fair this is not an issue. Leaves a nice, natural, clean matte finish - not a dewey, or shiny greasy one. Protects great, I don't even get a smidge of tan with this one.

I like this sunscreen but it leaves a ridiculous white cast on my face. I finally end up returning it because It just looks ridiculous. But if you are going to the beach and don't have a good sunscreen for your face, try this for the time being. Nobody would notice how white your face looks at the beach because eventually you will get in the water.

I really like this product. I use it every day on my neck, and I've started using it as a base for my powder foundation. It makes an excellent m/u primer/base. The formula isn't greasy, and the broad-spectrum mineral sunscreens are gentle on my skin which has a tendency to get red and itchy from chemical sunscreens. This product reminds me a lot of Clinique's City Block, but A LOT cheaper. Great product!

I have the CVS dupe for this and its pretty good. I have tried out a few sunscreens and they tend to make me breakout of leave my face greasy. This is one of the better ones. After using my Azelex cream I wait about 10 mintues and then apply this, like most sunscreens it does leave a white cast on the face but it disapears as time goes on. Ive also noticed that some face powder does a good job of concealing this.I do not breakout from this and I havent noticed any added shine to my face while using this. So far its a two thumbs up for me!

It does what it's supposed to do, but made my skin greasy and shiny, and gave it a greyish-tint (since I'm dark-skinned, this is extra noticeable). It's not at all sweatproof; if I even walk in a slight drizzle of rain, it starts diluting on my face, leaving white streaks. I would definitely not buy this again.

I moved to Miami recently, and the sun is much stronger here than in the Northeast. Whereas I only wore sunscreen when I was spending the day in the sun up north, I really need it every day here. So, I began my quest for the perfect daily sunscreen. Unfortunately, my skin is very sensitive to chemicals, so I need a physical blocker (and those tend to be heavy). I started my quest with this one. It has no odor, and applies easily. It does leave a bit of a whitish cast, but since I am medium toned, the slight lightening did not bother me. What did bother me was the oil slick that my face turned into every time I used it. At first, I tried to accept it as a "healthy glow", but after making my way through most of the bottle, I decided that it really is too heavy for daily facial use. It definitely did block the sun, which is a plus. I would continue to use this on my body, but not on my face. My skin is combo dry and oily, so finding something perfect for my face is challenging.

This made my face look super oily and broke me out.

I used to love this physical sunblock until they removed Shea Butter as one of the ingredients. It used to go on smooth and a bit white but now it goes on dry, matte and white as chalk...even using a moisturizer first won't help this. If you have very oily sensitive, pale skin give it a go cuz it isn't irritating but it's not the only game in town. Blue Lizard has much better products for all skin types and more protection for what you need.

quite normal. Not any impressive.

Umm...well...I hated this sunscreen. It was way too thick, way to thick, almost along the lines of a liquefied white colored Vaseline. YUCK!!! The sad thing is because of the thickness of this sunscreen it does not absorb well into the skin, hence leaving a whitish cast over my skin which can not be covered by mineral makeup, and I am caramel color WOC, so having a whitish undertone to my skin is neither wanted nor needed from a sunscreen since I am neither a theatrical performer nor a professional clown.
I had such high hopes for this product but it has been added to my DO NOT RE-BUY LIST FOR LIFE.

I first bought this sunscreen after I had my first light chemical peel. It was what was recommended by the derm. I have been using it for almost 4 months. I always wore a higher SPF and worried this would not protect my face in Florida sun, but it is all I need. Does not make me break out and I use it daily. I agree it is a bit white but I am pale so really not a problem for me. It does make me a bit shiny but I can use blotting papers if I need to. :-) I will continue to repurchase.

A bit too thick for me; caused oiliness after an hour or so. I use it under my eyes and on my neck/body only. Overall very happy if I keep it off my face.

I really like this because my legs are super sensitive. If i mix this with my regular body moisturizer, it goes on better. this works better for those who are pale because it makes you look a little white at first, but then blends in. love it, and will always come back to this.

oh my gosh this is terribleeeeee! it doesn't soak in AT ALL, and I'm white as hell, but this stuff STILL shows up on me. also it's a TERRIBLE mix with water - one drop and it comes off, becoming even more obvious and even more white
doesn't soak in at all. (no not even over time)
not water resistant at all.
I like that it's oil free and spf30, but would never buy again

I have to give some love to this sunscreen. It's not fancy. It probably isn't blocking UVA rays. But when I use it, I don't burn, I don't break out, I don't leave white smudges on everything I touch. It doesn't smell at all. And, um, I actually think my skin looks better after I've put it on.

Well, I've tried high-end and low-end sunscreens. Apparently, I can only tolerate titanium dioxide in my sunscreen which this is. I liked Clarins mineral filter but couldn't stand the fragrance. This is cheap and I don't break out when I use it. So it looks like a keeper.
I don't have any problem with it soaking in or leaving a white cast. I use this for body only - I use Clarins UV Plus for my face which I adore even though it's pricey.
