This is one of the best mineral sunscreens I have come across. My room mate ordered a bunch of them during a sale and gave me one to test out. I liked the inclusion of great antioxidants in the ingredients list as well as cardiospermum extract (also known as balloon vine extract) which is one of the BEST ingredients for anti inflammatory/ anti redness. It is hard to perfect a mineral sunscreen without making it very thick, chalky, greasy and leaving a white cast but this one manages to provide protection as well as hydration without doing any of these things. It also wears super well under my makeup and I have VERY oily oily skin. My only complaint is the inclusion of lavender oil. Essential oils are typically very irritating to the skin. While the lavender is listed very low on the ingredient list it is still VERY strong when I first apply it. But the scent does dissipate after a few minutes and I haven’t had an adverse reactions from this product. If you are oily, a makeup wearer and prefer a zinc based SPF this is worth a try. I think it would be nice for dry skin too but you would probably need to layer a moisturizer underneath.
