Good product Living Well Medical Spa in Portland Oregon recommended this sunscreen and it's the first one I've found that didn't cause a reaction. My dermatologist said I could only use products with zinc oxide or titanium oxide and this one fits the bill. I would definitely recommend it. June 14, 2014
Sheer and complete coverage for rosacea patient This product has been wonderful for my 'touchy', easily-irritated skin! The fluid format (I admit I never got to try the creme) goes on smoothly and creates a matte finish to wear alone or under make up. I never burn with this product in place and it allows me to spend my time outdoors. I only wish it were water and sweat-proof but that would probably change its light airy texture. So many sunscreens feel like greasy masks and this one definitely does not. I don't leave the house without it. October 3, 2013
Works for me I used the cream version before it was discontinued and just tried the new version which is a thick lotion. It does have a white-ish cast, but that fades as it absorbs and leaves a matte finish that is surprisingly light. It works well under makeup on my oily-combo skin. The only downside is less product than the cream version for the same price. September 16, 2013
