I thought by clear it meant the stuff wouldn't leave your face looking white. Not true. This stuff is the same white as most every other sunscreen. It makes my face look shiny. I don't like that. Took a while to figure out the clear means its supposed to clear acne spots cuz it has niacinamide in it. Gimmicky. I like the pump but can't tell how much is left. Not buying this again.
Just a super gentle but really effective cleansing water that even removes waterproof mascara. Much less expensive compared to other brands: Caudalie $3.88/oz, Koh Gen Do $3.84/oz, Bioderma $1.93/oz

I do no get the love for this product. The consistency is like a combination of honey and orange marmalade. Disgusting. At 10 minutes it was burning. After removing it I was blotchy and red. Horrible.
I totally disagree with the reviewer below and apparently so do MANY others since on Amazon it's a 5-star product (16 reviews) and on Dermstore it's also rated 5-stars (33 reviews). This is a great sunscreen. It's the consistency of watery aloe vera and it's clear. Yes it does have a serious alcohol smell but it dissipates very quickly. I have very oily skin, VERY oily, and this sunscreen is great because it's not thick or greasy or goupy or oily. It's clear so it doesn't leave a whitecast and best of all it does not leave my face shiny. I got a sample from the dermatologist and loved it so much I bought it!

This is a very pretty color and looks nice and feels good. I have never written a review but after reading the utterly ridiculous so called review from the previous person I felt compelled to write one as an offset. To say her review is ignorant is an understatement.
