Nope. Nope. Nope. This stuff is runny, gritty and leaves a thick white mask on your face. I bought it because I thought I needed a strong physical barrier during the summer months, but I found it so unpleasant to apply that I just avoided the beach and extended outdoor activity. I hate to waste anything, especially expensive skincare products, but I know I won't use it before it expires in …Read more

This is my first mineral sunscreen and it did a decent job protecting my face from the sun. It absorbed quickly and was pretty matte.

However, at the end of the day, my eyes sting even though this was a mineral sunscreen (all titanium with no zinc).

It was not easy to wash out as well.

Not my favorite and I don't see myself using this in the future.

Absolute rubbish !!!

Do not buy it!

Has grains of something similar to sand in it, so it does NOT go on smooth and you CANNOT wear it under makeup.

It’s almost abrasive as you apply it because of the grains.

This review is for the US version that contains both zinc oxide (5%) and titanium dioxide (6%). Unfortunately, this irritates my skin and causes little breakouts. It has a grainy texture that feels like sandpaper upon application. Rubbing it between fingers before facial application helps a little, but it still feels a bit scratchy. It also causes a burning sensation; unsure if this is …Read more

I'm surprised by the bad reviews of this product. I'm on my second bottle of this, so though it isn't my favorite mineral sunscreen (that's Bare Minerals Prep Step), I'd still buy this again. My two main cons of this product is that it's pricey and that it does leave an initial faint white cast. However, that white cast does fade. I usually put on my sunscreen, go …Read more

This product unfortunately broke me out in my spot sensitive areas (forehead and in-between my brows). Stuck with it for 3 months before reverting to my old sunscreen Neostrata spf 50 and the spots cleared up. I know of people who love this sunscreen however and have had no problems with it! It's good if you want something sheer, easily available (in the UK) that's at a decent price …Read more

SCENT: typical sunscreen scent, doesn't linger but won't go away unless fully absorbed into the skin
CONSISTENCY: not too runny but quite similar to a lotion, feels like grease city
PERFORMANCE: doesn't make me breakout (can't say much about its sun protection ability or longevity bc I've never worn it for a long day out in the sun just yet)

Because …

The reviews were so positive on this and I was on the market for a physical sunscreen last summer so I bit the bullet and picked this up at Target. Something in the formulation broke me out so after a few months, I gave up and eventually found EltaMD's physical sunscreen (SPF 41). I gave this to one of my kids to use for every day use. I liked that this was easy to find (at Target, no less) …Read more

This is the worst sunscreen I've ever used. The baseline for an adequate sunscreen for me is "effective," and this one didn't pass the test. I had such high hopes as I've heard so many wonderful things about the sunscreens from La Roche-Posay, and I was about to spend a long day in the hot, aggressive sun, so I tried it out. I basically spent the entire day in the sun …Read more

I am now on my second bottle of this non tinted version. I really like this, possibly more than the tinted version. I find it gives better sun protection (this has both mineral protectants while the tinted only has one) and wipes off clear (won't stain beach towels, hats, etc.). Yes, there is a slight white cast at first, but this dissipates in a few minutes after rubbing in. I have …Read more
