This sunscreen is an amazing primer if you wear makeup. It is quite siliconey, so if you don't like that feeling, you'll hate it. I like it. Your makeup will just glide on and look beautiful. It does have a rather strange smell, almost rubbery. And it only comes in 30ml, which is a shame. It goes on really nicely, leaves your skin with a very natural and beautiful finish. I …Read more

I really, really like this sunscreen. It's very lightweight, applies very smoothly and leaves no marks. It does leave the skin a little bit shiny, but more like a healthy glow than a mess. The major downside it that it's only PA+++ instead of PA++++. I wish they would reformulate it to add more UVA protection. I love the formula and how it goes on the skin, but I would love to be more …Read more

It does leave a bit of a white cast, but it doesn't show too much on my fair skin, so I can wear it by itself without issues. I like that it makes my skin look like porcelain. It's not matte, it leaves a natural satin finish without being shiny. It's very watery, so the aquafluide name is very appropriate. A major downside for me is the very small size (40ml).

This is not a broad spectrum sunscreen! It only has titanium dioxide, which doesn't provide full UVA protection. So, if you've been using it and wondered why you could still see bumps or other sun related issues, then the lack of proper UVA protection is the cause.
And, on top of that, it leaves a horrible white cast (which looks bad even on my very fair skin) and it has a very …

This has a really lightweight texture, it goes on very smoothly, it's not shiny or oily and it doesn't leave a white cast. It does remain a bit sticky and, for some reason, it settles into the lines under my eyes, which isn't too common for me with sunscreen. But I really like that it's cosmetically elegant and it's waterproof. It's close to the cosmetic elegance of …Read more

It has an amazing texture, goes on very smoothly and without any streaks or white cast. It absorbs very quickly into the skin. The major downside is the very, very powerful alcohol smell. I don't think I have ever tried a sunscreen that smelled so much like alcohol. It doesn't irritate my skin or my eyes, but the smell does bother me. I think this would also be drying for people with …Read more

I was extremely excited to try this product. I had read rave review about it, heard numerous praises, not to mention that it was recommended for acne prone skin like mine. People on youtube were calling it a holy grail product. So I had really high hopes.
I had read that it's not uncommon for your skin to go through a "purging" phase, so I wasn't too upset when I saw …
