Clear Start Clearing Defense SPF30 Mattifying Moisturizer

I was drawn to this as I hate thick oily sunscreens on my face. Its a chemical based facial sunscreen scented like medicinal band-aids. It rubs in quickly, feels light and looks invisible on skin, and controls shine well. I like it on my T-Zone. Matte finish with light moisture. Not tacky, powdery-dry feeling, or over-drying like Neutrogena Dry Touch Sunscreen. Doesn't clog pores or give me breakouts. Even on my nose which seems to clog up with most sunscreens. Very slight sheer white cast that disappears after a few minutes, better than most. SPF30 but doesn't say a PA rating so we have no way of telling if it blocks the aging UVA rays. Only the sun burning ones. Highly scented with irritating ingredients, some that cause trigger skin sensitivity when exposed to sunlight (Terpineol, Thymol, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Citronellol, Orange Peel Oil, Coriander Fruit Oil....) I wish they had an unscented option. While I can use this on my face, its way too irritating to use on my neck, chest, and backs of hands. Not going to use on my face as I'm concerned with increasing skin sensitivity over time. Considering trying the new Dermalogica Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 which is physical based (zinc oxide), not chemical based.

I love how effective cleansing balms are, but I have always hated that they normally come in a tub. I don't like how messy the tub gets when your make up gets into while you clean your face. The Dermalogica Precleanse balm comes in a squeeze tube and 2 to 3 squeezes will clean your entire face. This balm effortlessly removes all your makeup, including waterproof eye makeup, without stripping your skin. I follow with a water-based cleanser as part of my double cleansing night time routine.

I agree with the other review on this product. This has a LOT of fragrance and reeks of rose. I had some breakouts while using this but am not certain it was caused by this. Won't repurchase!
