This NIA 24 mineral sunscreen has an exceptionally smooth and creamy texture, with great sun protection. However, the white color remains apparent even after it has been absorbed & settles into fine lines and clings to any dry, flaky areas. It would be ideal for someone very pale without any wrinkles or dry patches. It would also be a better product if it had been slightly tinted, which you …Read more

This is my HG sunscreen. I'm fair skinned, have a family history of skin cancer, and am frequently outside, so sun protection is very important to me. Unfortunately I also have ridiculously sensitive, acne prone skin and have literally tried hundreds of sunscreens for my face. This is the ONLY ONE that does not trigger some sort of allergic reaction or breakout. In fact, the niacin in it has …Read more

I ordered this product in a mini- size to try it and have used it for 3 days. I have really, really problematic sensitive skin with adult acne and melasma at the same time. It's really hard finding a sunscreen that both LOOKS nice and doesn't cause more BREAKOUTS. It's all an trial and error. Right now I've used Elta Md clear for a long time, but during hot and humid …Read more

I received a sample of this from the dermatologist when I had an annual skin cancer check. I really don't like it.

First, it has a terrible smell, which is not dissipating. Second, it made my skin burn. Not sure why that would be if it is just 100% minerals.
Last, there is a heavy and noticeable whitecast. Although I need and prefer strong sunscreens, this is certainly …

After having great results from NIA 24 Skin Strengthening Complex, i was a bit disappointed with this sunscreen. i use it in the AM; it has a whitish cast but disappears in a few minutes, then i put my shiseido powder on. As i went off to do my errands, I noticed my skin a bit warm and itchy, but I didn't mind it. It also had no oil control compared to my shiseido sunscreen. By the time i …Read more

APPLICATION: I like the smooth glide of the application, however, it ends there. Being that I'm tan, this puts a haze SO WHITE on my face that I would label it a FLOURESCENT blue, for about an hour after application.

FINISH: After an hour, the flourescent haze disappears and makeup goes on top of it well. Doesn't get super greasy.

WELLNESS: I've …

I don't care for this sunscreen or Smashbox's Halo glow, but the combination of the two together, makes a really nice tinted moisturizer. I placed a small amount of sunscreen into a small plastic container and shaved off a decent of amount of the SHG and got a creamy, silky, neutral tinted moisturizer. It dried down to a matte finish and the tint looks really natural. The sunscreen does …Read more

Well I love this stuff!
I love the smell even though it's fragrance free it has a natural smell that I love.


It blends in and does not look white. It has vitamin b in it so it can(make your) and does make my skin a little red and hot for about 10 minutes( though my friend uses it and it does not happen to her at all) this just means its working and is 100% normal with …

I cant quite decide if I like this product or not. It can be quite drying (which is handy for oily skin) and I find it very white! I dont find it irritating however, but I think there are better sunscreens out there with a higher Zinc and Titanium Dioxide content (this one only has approx 3.6% ZnO and 9.45% TiO2, whereas I would like a higher percentage of Zinc ) But it is a cheaper way to get …Read more

I'm really impressed by this product. I wanted a sunscreen that could be worn on its own (when I've been to the gym in the summer) or over a moisturiser. This feels lovely when I'm putting in on and I don't get any white marks, but then I do love to spend a minute or two rubbing (gently of course) any lotions in my face. It doesn't clog pores although not cheap, you …Read more
