I've been using this sunscreen pretty much exclusively and evangelizing it for about 10 years now.. It's great! It's a bit expensive and if you're in the sun, you do need to reply if you're sweaty...

I have oily, acne prone skin and this sunscreen is just perfect for me. No breakouts and dries to a lovely matte finish with no white cast. The downside of this sunscreen is that it is not 100%...

Finally a face sunscreen I am actually able and happy to wear every day! It has great ingredients for moisture too so I use it in place of my daytime moisturizer any day I’m going out. Absorbs...

I have tried a lot of suncreen. Because I get very tan in the sun, most sunscreens turn purple or gray on my skin. Avobenzone makes me break out so I stick with mineral based sunscreens. I was...

It doesn't clog pores and doesn't cause redness. I guess it contains some ingredients that's toxic for some people. But luckily I'm fine. It doesn't make white cast - which is the best part! But...

This made my face sting and burn. I really wanted to like it. It broke me out and gave me a rash too. The EltaMD UV Shield is a much better option for my skin. *sigh* money wasted

I so wanted to love this sunscreen. So much so that I might buy it again, having now been a year...perhaps the formula changed a little. My problem was pilling, and this stuff was not good....

After trying over 20 facial sunscreens, I've settled on this one for my everyday use in the summer -- it's as close to perfection as I'm going to get with a sunscreen. I HATE the way they feel, I...
