Well, this faceblock is awesome, but the spf is a tad low. And in our New Zealand conditions, it's like wearing nothing with spf 25.

Our recommended faceblocks should start at 30 above (especially on a summer)

This comes in a tint that I super super love! But it melts away during the day because of my oil.

The packaging is alright, it's upside down so it's easy to squeeze out since the product is already at the bottom. Dermalogica has really put a lot into their packaging, they didn't have in a fancy schmancy way but rather, it's purpose, and usability. Wicked.

Beware! It is easy to confuse the ***Ultra*** Sensitive FaceBlock with the ***Super*** one. The Ultra is a tinted cream in a tube; the Super is a super-light white fluid in a small bottle. I'm reviewing this now having just repurchased the good Super, and recalled, with a shudder, my previous experience with the Ultra.

The Ultra is a pink/peach-tinted cream - a similar shade and texture to Clinique City Block 25. The active sunscreen ingredient is titanium dioxide (full ingredients listing at end of review).

I found it quite heavy to apply, and rather strongly scented (pleasant, mind you). My skin was very unhappy with it, reacting within minutes. I removed it as soon as possible, but still had patches of rash and suffered a breakout: not just the usual localised/cyctic pimples, but all over my face and neck where I'd applied the Ultra. There is unfortunate photographic evidence of this from an event I had to attend the next day. All therefore quite unforgettable.

This might well work for other people - but please do read the ingredients and patch-test it (somewhere inconspicuous like inside wrist) before buying. And I'd heartily recommend the Super instead. I felt a strong moral obligation to warn about the Ultra, and the perils of its confusion with the Super. (Mops sweaty brow and stops shuddering.)

Love this product. Mix it with Barrier Repair for better consistency. Love the tint which is good in Winter to add some color to my light olive face (LLL).

made my skin oily and gave me a breakout. i ended up just using the rest of the tube on my decolette over the summer, but it is too expensive for this purpose when regular sunblock does the same.
