This might be my HG. Kiehl's has a super-white cast and makes me break out. La Roche Posay runs into my eyes and stings if I so much as think a sweaty thought. Neutrogena has a white cast, makes me break out, and is eye-destroying Satan. Haven't tried Shisedo, but why bother when this gets the job done for $5 cheaper an ounce?
I've been using this for two weeks, and it's worked perfectly on my dry, non-acne-prone skin. The alcohol has not been an issue at all. Sunscreen goes on white, but the cast disappears almost entirely by the time I've rubbed it in, and is 100% gone by the time it takes for me to walk from the first floor bathroom, collect my purse and work bag, and walk out the front door. I haven't worn this in the full blast of subway summer heat yet, but so far, it only stings a little if I've been an idiot and rubbed it into my eyelids or the corners of my eyes.
Minus one lippie for not being 100% physical, but I swear the Vitamin E has my skin looking pretty damn good.
