This sunscreen can go to hell. I've spent the past 2 years carefully avoiding the sun, wearing ridiculous hats, slathering myself in sunscreen that either broke me out or made me look greasy and pale, all in the name of avoiding a tan or darkening of my melasma. I ran out of my beloved Skinceuticals physical spf and put this on today bc i was just going to work. I walked 30 min there with a very large brim hat on. Ran one errand so was out with a hat again for another 15 min. I came home and my husband asked me if I was wearing new makeup. Thought that was odd. Figured maybe it's bc this stuff wears so well and I want greasy. Then I went up to wash my face and lo and behold, my face looked so even colored...bc I got a f@#$ing tan!!!!!!!!!!! Is this a joke? I'm so angry. Zero stars. Will never stray from physical sunscreen again. Glad I learned this lesson before the peel I plan to get for my melasma :(

This is one of my favorite sunscreens. It feels light and absorbs/dries quickly, so it's great for just running out the door. It's like not even wearing sunscreen. It has a mild citrus smell, and a thinner texture than most other sunscreens. This makes it easier to apply, but also easier to not use enough. I use more than I 'feel' like I need to put on to ensure I have actual sun protection. I haven't tried applying over makeup yet, but I feel like it wouldn't be an issue.

I see why this product get such good reviews. For me the amount alcohol in it makes it unwearable for me. You can even smell it when you apply it. The smell is quite strong.

Disappointing.1. It seemed to dry my skin out (I don't have especially dry skin.)2. It rolled up and pilled on my skin--a quality I absolutely hate in a lotion/cream.3. It didn't seem to protect me enough, since I have some burned spots on my neck after a couple hours in the sun. I realize that's probably my fault for not putting in on carefully enough. Ah well.

Because of all the raves I've read over the internet while I am searching for a non greasy sunblock that would not break me out, I tried this essence on top of my VMV pore mattifier. I got a small jar of this from my friend who has been a loyal user of Biore sunscreens and recommended it to me. I had spent so much money on products that didn't work for me in the past so it was fortunate that I could test it first before I buy one full size bottle. It was non greasy, absorbed very fast, and left a satiny finish on my skin. There was no white cast too. I would have loved it despite the alcohol content if it didn't irritate my oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. With my first use, my face itched after a few hours. I will search again for another sunscreen that will work well for my skin type.

This sunscreen is light weight and absorbs easily, also it didn't leave any white cast on my skin. However, it contains alcohol and my dry-ish skin doesn't agree with that. So, nah, I won't be repurchasing. I'm using Hada Labo's air sunscreen which is alcohol free.

I tried this after finding Biore's perfect face milk a little too drying and mattifying. The texture is a light gel, and I find it neither drying or moisturizing. It just feels like clean, soft skin. The best thing about this product is that my 4 kids tolerate my putting it on their faces. They hate sunscreen that is sticky, greasy, shiny, or hard to rub in. (Picky like their mama!) This just smooths on and disappears. So thank you, Biore, for eliminating 15 minutes of whining and complaining every morning as I'm getting the kids ready. If only this sunscreen could make beds and brush teeth... Lol!

Compared to most western sunscreens, this one is far lighter and less greasy on the skin.However, my skin is very oily and this just never seemed to fully absorb. Also, it made my foundation slide and look more greasy. I don't think it's a bad sunscreen, but after seeing all the glowing reviews, I was left wanting.I used up a whole tube, but would not repurchase again. For my skintype I much prefer the Biore Perfect Milks, which are more mattifying and stay put.

I bought this on Amazon after seeing the reviews and recommendations here. The texture and application is amazing! I loved this product for the first few days. After a while, my face started getting irritated and dry. It must be the alcohol content. I will use this up for sure... but won't buy again. Recommend for once in a while use (when you need your face unsticky and mu to look great). Not recommend for daily use unless you are super oily. For reference, I am super dry in winter and dry-to-normal in summer.

I had to try this sunscreen, being an oily-skinned sun protection fanatic. Everything about it seemed like it would be absolutely perfect for my needs. And it...was and wasn't. I ended up disappointed. The texture and finish is just as beautiful and perfect as everyone says. Disappears into skin and controls oil extremely well, no white cast, but sadly the alcohol in this did begin to dry me out within about three days. I use acids and other drying actives, so on top of those this was just too much. I was surprised, my oily skin usually holds up to anything, but I definitely ended up flaky and dehydrated from this. And directly because of that I ended up breaking out a little. My other issue with this sunscreen is that I just don't think it gives that great protection, which is weird, considering it's SPF 50. I know it isn't water-proof or sweat-proof, but just walking around in the sun a little bit I ended up slightly red with this, and after a week of use my face was definitely more tan. Also old pigmentation that had been fading seemed to get more red. Yeah...looking at other reviews, I see I am not the only one with that issue. I don't understand, it seems to work great for others for sun protection, really confusing. It definitely gave me SOME protection, but not enough. (And yup, I always use a proper amount, follow wait times, and reapply frequently.) I still sort of like this sunscreen, and may use it occasionally when I just need a little bit of protection, but unfortunately I can't even use it as a daily indoor sunscreen due to the dehydration issue. Back to my Neutrogena Clear Face SPF 30, which leaves me a little greasy, but other than that works perfectly. I'd say this product is worth trying, since it's inexpensive, but maybe not the be all and end all of sunscreen for everyone. Updated to add: Couldn't resist the beautiful finish of this sunscreen, so I tried again, while stepping up moisturizing game. Wore it for a week straight, broke out with cystic acne. :( I suppose I could wear this as a one off to a wedding or something, but sadly can't be daily use for me.
