June 2018 Update: Sad to say I have to change my review. I went through two bottles of this sunscreen and loved it. There's something different about the third bottle. I'm not sure why... I don't know if my skin has changed, if I'm now reacting to an ingredient, or possibly got a dud. It does not dry down like it used to. It's also quite drying. It makes the texture of my skin look so bad. I haven't had dry flakes in months, then I started using this sunscreen again and my skin is so flaky by the end of the day.
Original review: First and foremost, I LOVE this sunscreen. My skin is combo/oily, prone to breakouts and clogs, and very reactive/sensitive. My skin also gets dehydrated easily.
I bought this because Dr. Sam Bunting recommended it in one of her videos about sunscreens she takes on vacation. She appears to have very fair skin, so I figured if the tint wasn't too dark for her, it would be just fine for me (NC15-20). I was also intrigued when I saw "PA++++" on the bottle. The tint appears a little darker than my skin straight out of the bottle, but it blends beautifully. It doesn't look like I'm wearing anything, but it makes my skin look nice. It dries down to a matte finish but isn't drying. I do use a light layer of Clinique's Moisture Surge Intense before applying because zinc oxide tends to dry out my skin. I can't comment on how it wears under makeup because I don't use foundation, but it seems like it could be a nice primer for makeup. It also seems to have good protection; my melasma hasn't gotten any darker since using it. No breakouts either, which is a huge plus! This has replaced Replenix Sheer Physical Sunscreen Spray, which I had been using previously but found incredibly drying and protection wasn't that great.
