This has replaced my previous face sunscreen. I got a sample of it and fell in love. I use physical-only on my face, because chemical sunscreen actives irritate my eyes. (However, for my body I can use chemical.) It is hard to fine a physical-only sunscreen that doesn't look chalky, looks flawless on skin, and doesn't slide around. The tint and texture looks like poop when it comes out of the tube. It looks like it won't work as you first put it on. However, after it settles on your skin, the tint blends very nicely on my skin. You can apply it on half you face to test this. My skin ranges from light-med to medium depending on the season. If you have very fair skin, this won't work. This is a silicone-based sunscreen. So if you don't like silicones, don't get this. I like it because it also serves as a primer and mattifier before putting on makeup, so I get my money's worth. It blurs out my imperfections in a flattering way. What I really love about it is it stays in place. It doesn't slide around like some silicone products do. (Note, if you wear a water-based foundation, silicone doesn't wear well under those. Even though water will always be the first ingredient in most liquid foundations, your foundation can still be silicone-based. Just check to see if the next ingredients after water are silicone.) This does not serve as a moisturizer. You will need to wear a separate moisturizer underneath. But, I don't mine because I'm still saving money by not having to buy a primer/mattifier before putting on my makeup. I never found physical sunscreens to be moisturizing anyway - unless they have a bunch of oils in it that don't play well my oily skin. I always wear a separate gel moisturizer underneath any physical sunscreen. The tube is small, but it is also way cheaper than Tizo3 and has the same ingredients. I usually get 20% discounts from Dermstore and get it for $16 for 1.5 oz. The most I've seen it for is $20. Tizo3 is $36-$40 for 1.75 oz. Note: The picture on here is outdated. The packaging doesn't look like that anymore.
