I have used it for a few weeks. It was not greasy when I tried it on the back of my hand. But on the face and under makeup, it does get greasy after a few hours. Not too greasy, but enough for me to switch to another brand. Like many high factor sunscreen, it has a white film, so may not work for people with darker skin (or you have to really rub it in). Not a bad product, but if you are very oily, or have dark skin, or want to wear makeup, it is not ideal for you.

I have a problem with sunscreens. I have greasy formulas. I hate the feeling on my skin. This is a very ungreasy cream so was great when I was in North Carolina with my whiter that white Scottish skin. It has a bad whiteness to it though (the age old titanium oxide problem). I look forward to finding a strong sunblock that is chemical/non-whitening enough to use ever day. D.xx

I just started using this a couple of days ago. So far, I really like it, because I know it's great protection. It is thick, like a cream rather than a milk and has a white cast to it, but that looks better after it sinks in. I don't know if it would work for darker skins. At least it doesn't leave me shiny, just a slight sheen. It hasn't caused any breakouts and time will tell on that. If no breakouts, I will purchase again. UPDATE: Decided this one was a little too thick and heavy on me. Looking for something else.

The texture of this is more like a cream than a milk. Tinosorb M and Titanium Dioxide are the active UVA ingredients, on the packing it has a UVA rating of 60. Unfortunately this has a white cast, however it is less shiny than other European brand sunblocks I've tried. The white cast and thick consistency though make this noticable when re-applied several times. This would be a great choice for a day at the beach/outdoors as it's thick consistency ensures it doesn't budge from your skin once it's applied, IMHO it is a very sweat/water resistant sunblock due to it's texture, for this outdoors use I'd give it 5 stars. It is personally however too thick and white for everyday use for me, so overall I gave it 3.
