After starting to use a few of Mad Hippie's other products (the Vitamin C and Exfoliating serums), I decided to take a chance on their facial sunscreen. I tend to enjoy more mineral-based formulas, which this definitely is! I'd been using Farmacy's Green Screen, and picked this up after finishing my last tube of Green Screen. It was also less expensive and didn't involve a trip to the mall to pick up; one of the things I really enjoy about Mad Hippie is that in my area, it's sold in multiple chains of supermarkets and I don't have to go out of my way to get it.Because the main active ingredient is Zinc Oxide (16%), I expected some degree of white cast on application (despite claims otherwise). On me, the white cast never faded completely. On one hand, it cancelled out a little bit of redness, but on the other, it made me look pretty ghastly and washed out. On days when I applied makeup on top, it wasn't a big deal, but with the sunscreen alone, I looked a little dead (for reference, I'm NC 20-25-ish in summer). The feel of the formula was fine, you should definitely shake the bottle before applying. It didn't feel too "lotiony" which a lot of sunscreens do, and wasn't heavy or greasy on my face, even the oily areas. The coverage was effective, so the product did its job.The smell is strong. If you don't like wearing florals or enjoy the smell of rose, this is not for you. In my experience, the smell did not fade over time, and people around me could instantly pick up on it. It's not necessarily a bad smell, but it's definitely a smell.All in all, not a bad product. I'll be finishing my tube but more likely on my chest and hands, not my face. I enjoy Mad Hippie as a brand, but this product didn't work as well for me as I'd hoped.

Over priced for this tiny bottle. Good ingredients but not enough in this teeny tiny bottle to use long enough to notice any results. And it’s very heavily fragranced too.

After reading scads of reviews singing to praises, I ordered this, accidentally subscribing, so I received a second bottle a few months after the first. It seemed to take forever to empty the bottles because I was so underwhelmed. I never noticed a change in my skin either way. For me, it was the skin care equivalent of a sugar pill. However, it's comparatively inexpensive, the texture isn't bad, the packaging is okay and I didn't experience any negative effects.

Why is the unstable vitamin A in a dropper style bottle instead of an airtight pump dispenser.? This serum did nothing for my combination skin but clog pores and cause breakouts.

I absolutely love this cleanser. I took a chance when I saw this at Whole Foods. I've never tried anything from this brand and the ingredient list had me interested immediately. I also have rosacea and MOST products irritate my skin. This causes zero irritation. It feels beautiful on my skin. It slides around effortlessly and rinses cleanly, removing all of my light makeup with it. My skin feels clean and calm and I don't feel the need to slather my skin with moisturizer right away. I will 100% purchase again.
