Great Product

This sun screen has performed very well!  I live at high altitude and have not received a burn on my face while being outdoors. It absorbs nicely with no greasy feeling. I also mix it with my foundation for overall coverage.

best I've ever tried

On my 2nd bottle. About the bottle - it's tiny. But it lasts longer than you'd think! No sunscreen rationing needed. This is the best face sunscreen I've ever tried. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and I live in a very dry environment. It works wonderfully for me, and I even use it when I go home to an area with 90% humidity! No break outs, no white streaks. I think this would leave a slight white cast on deep skin tones, but it has less white cast than many other mineral sunscreens I've used.

White cast, good coverage

Tolerable white cast, but I am pale. I mostly like wearing this when hiking. Doesn't seem to break me out like other spfs and fairly easy to wash off. Give it a good shake before using.

Great for acne-prone skin

I just finished my first bottle and ordered a second. This hasn't given me acne or caused any sensitivities. I am really impressed with the texture and dry-down. The texture is thin and smooth, and after a few minutes it feels like nothing is on my skin. Unlike other sunscreens, this doesn't make me look shiny or affect how my makeup goes on. This didn't give me a white cast, but I'm pretty pale. Some formulas can still cause a cast on me, but not this one. My skin: acne-prone, balanced/a bit oily, using adapalene, dry climate

White tint

I was hoping this would not leave a white tint but unfortunately it does. The consistency and smell are nice, but I can’t use it without looking like a ghost

Best sunscreen ever

This sunscreen was recommended by my dermatologist 2 years ago, and i haven’t stopped using it ever since.  I have sensitive, acne prone and oily skin.  It is lightweight, non greasy, doesn’t cause breakouts.  I cannot leave my house without sunscreen on ever since i was like 10. Tried so many different ones, dermatologic ones and otc ones, but had not found one like this one.  It does leave  a white cast slightly, but i don’t mind. Its just my personal preference not to get the tinted one.  I am going to continue using this one for the end of time or until discontinued (which hopefully never happens)

This is the ONE

By far the best tinted mineral sunscreen I have tried! Very thin and liquid, but dries down quickly with a silky finish. The tint is slightly grey, but works nicely for evening out my pink undertones. 100% reordering.

Goes on sheer

A sheer, lightweight SPF that does not pill. It does show a light white cast at first but then it fades as it absorbs.  I like to use the tinted one on my face and then I will use this sheer white one on my neck and chest.

Gave me a horrible skin rash

I don't know how this sunscreen has good reviews. I typically love SkinCeuticals products but this was awful. Not only did it dry out my skin and give me an eczema-like skin rash, it rubbed off on my boyfriend and gave him a rash too. Both of us have oily/combination skin and are NOT prone to eczema
