My Nordstrom beauty rep recommended I try this when my skin broke out in rashes from the chlorine content (I recently moved from Singapore to LA). I was sort of sceptical at the beginning but the ingredient list looked great and i'm changing out most of my products to try and reduce the number of chemicals I'm applying to my face and body in general.

Application: This goes …

I figured this product would only have limited appeal (super pale people with oily skin), but I guess the reviews here show otherwise.

I didn't realize this was tinted until I went to use it for the first time. Usually one-size-fits-all tinted products are too dark for my N20ish skin, but this is way too light, resulting in a ghostly, white mask effect.

It's also …

lightweight, non-greasy, SPF 40. i've been looking for a high-SPF moisturizer that will not irritate my oily, acne-prone skin and this is perfect on me. the tint is sheer and doesn't cover the blemish but you can apply your foundation on top. feels very light on the skin. will definitely buy again.

I got this together with Elta MD UV Physical, they both are tinted, have zinc and titanium and all in are kinda similar. I wanted to know which one performs better. Elta wins, hands down. I had high hopes for Arcona, because it had slightly better ingredient list, but under real life conditions Arcona disappointed me. It's like a bad foundation on skin, even though the texture is light and …Read more

I am reviewing a sample size I received in a gift with purchase from beauty.com. I love this stuff. I was shocked when I opened the tube and saw that it was tinted because I have fair skin and most tinted products look like sludge on my skin. Not to shy away from trying something new, I gave it a shot. The color evened out my skintone without looking muddy at all! I normally wear …Read more

All zinc and tit. dioxide--the healthier sunblock choices--yet it doesn't leave a white cast. It has a heavenly mousse-like texture and blends in smoothly. The price is not bad at all compared to other sunscreen priced here in Canada, but this one is clearly better than average quality. Love this brand!

I don't like that it's in mousse form. I'd prefer smooth so …

I love this sunscreen. I'm usually really picky with sunblock because I prefer natural brands with physical blockers, but the problem with a lot of physical sunscreens is that they tend to make me look pastier than I really am. This has a light tint in it, so it actually makes me look livelier, and it's dark enough to cover minor imperfections so extra makeup isn't necessary. There …Read more

This is such a great sunscreen. It has a very lightweight texture and is tinted. It took me a little while to get used to it, as it is somewhat drying when worn alone. I've read that you aren't supposed to mix sunscreen with foundation but I do it anyways. I started mixing the Arcona sunscreen with Illuminaire foundation (which also has an SPF of 20). I have to go a shade darker …Read more

I love this sunscreen because it is matte on my oily face, has few and relatively safe ingredients, and uses physical blockers titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. I had been searching for a physical sunscreen that wouldn't be greasy or leave a white cast, and this is the only one I have found that does both and contains safe ingredients. I used La Roche Posay before, and although mexoryl was …Read more

Pros: This product is cutting-edge sunscreen. It's all ZnO and T20 and no preservatives (endocrine disruptors) or known carcinogens. It feels good - it's extremely lightweight and not at all greasy. It looks great - evens out skintone better than most tinted moisturizers and many foundations.
