what a waste of time! I'm a mom of toddlers and I love using a moisturizer with spf. it cuts down on the time I take getting ready. I wsa at the drugstore and they were out of the spf30 one and I thought of well spf45 will just protect me longer right? ugh! my t zone was an oil slick! it clogged my pores and on top of that the suncreen is not stable!!! this one has gone into my trash and I will not be buying again. I currently use the biore spf30 mois and its wonderful.

I had a horrible allergic reaction to this stuff. My skin isn't normally particularily sensitive, but after using this sunscreen I got hives all over my body, redness, terrible itching, all of which lasted for about three days after I used it. I would NOT recommend it to ANYONE. I can't comment on the effectiveness because I can't tell if my skin is red from sunburn or still red from the hives. Plus it's INCREDIBLY greasy. Okay my skin isn't breaking out-- but oil-free? Are you f-ing kidding me? My face has never been as oily as this stuff made it. Ugh. Worst sunscreen ever. I only bought it because it was on sale-- that'll teach me, I guess.

Oh man, this sunscreen turns me into a greasemonster! It's sooo bad. It even makes the skin on my arms all shiny and sticky looking. It takes forever for your skin to absorb this stuff so you have to wait a while to put on make-up. It also has a really strong "sunscreen'' fragrance that I just don't like. I mean, people don't need to be smelling sunscreen on me. It's just not necessary.

Ugh...I'm never buying anything without consulting MakeupAlley ever again. This stuff is to greasy and it makes me breakout like crazy. I let is sit for 15 min and it still didn't absorb into my skin. The only remotely redeeming factor is that it smells nice but not nice enough to make me repurchase xP .

This stuff stings like no other on me. I wanted it to work for me b/c I need a high SPF sunscreen since SPF30 doesn't do it anymore. I was really disappointed in this.

This is just too greasy for those with an oily T-zone. It may be "oil-free" but don't let that fool ya. Stays tacky throughout the day and does not seem to melt into the skin at all. I do like the smell of it though, nice orange scent. I'll just use it on my neck and such. Update: stains my clothes orange. Haven't noticed any breakouts so that's a plus. The search for SS continues....

This stuff left my face greasy, and I have REALLY dry skin so I would not recommend it unless you plan to wear foundation and powder over it. Price was fine, butjust too greasy:(

This sunscreen does the job, but there are definitely better sunblocks out there. Despite it's claim of being non-greasy, this sunblock is possibly one of the greasiest of all the ones I've tried. If you're a leg-crosser, beware. Your legs will feel as if you've slathered olive oil on them! I'd suggest trying Neutrogena's Active Breathable Sunblock instead.
