This sunscreen did not absorb well. I have fair skin and it made me look like I had come back from the dead. On top of that, the greasiness made my face very shiny. I could not use it again after the first try.
I am very diligent about getting a sunscreen that not only protects but does not have added chemicals that are not only bad for my skin but bad for my body as well. Ive been a fan of SkinCeuticals for a while but found some of their products to leave me a bit dry. This sunscreen is ideal for my sensitive and dry skin. It lasts and it protects. I recently had a bout of Rosacea and was informed my sunscreen may have been the cause. My dermatologist recommended this sunscreen and as soon as I started using it the Rosacea went away. It does leave a slight white hue but I appreciate that as it lets me know where I have applied it and it makes me feel more protected. I use my CC foundation cream over it and a touch of bronzer and its perfect.
I received this cream in a sample packet with my LovelySkin.com order. I love the entire line of SkinCeuticals sunscreen!Although Im used to the tinted versions, this one is white. The best part about this product is that it doesnt leave a ghostly cast. (Unlike other physical sunscreens.) Im currently battling dry skin as a result of new acne treatments, but it is thick enough to efficiently hydrate my dry skin without a moisturizer. I can definitely feel it on my skin, but its not greasy. Jut a richer consistency. This includes shea butter and talc, so it probably wouldnt be good for oilier, acne-prone skin. But I would recommend that those with non-acneic, sensitive, post-procedure or dry skin give it a try.
I have been using this sunscreen on my face daily for 10 years. I tried several and most were greasy or sticky. This one is neither. It absorbs quickly. It does leave my face a tiny bit shiny, but I its easy to add a little powder, and the shine is gone. Here are my favorite things about it: 1. It has titanium dioxide & zinc oxide. Other sunscreens use chemicals that are absorbed by the skin, while these are not, and since I wear it daily, I really like that! 2. The zinc starts reflecting the sun immediately (so I dont feel like I have to put it on 15 min. before I go outside.) When I remove my makeup at night with a blue cloth it has white on it from the sunscreen that lasted all day. Other sunscreens without zinc oxide begin breaking down right away as soon as you are in the sun. 3. I have sensitive skin and very dry skin, and this works very well. My daily routine: First, I put on moisturizer, then this sunscreen. It looks white going on, but only takes about a minute to absorb as I rub it in. Then I put a beige liquid makeup on over it and add my powder and blush. It all blends very well. I faithfully put this on daily, and dont worry about the sun for the rest of the day. If I do any vigorous outdoor exercise or go to the beach, I will reapply once.
I bought this to try something new under mineral makeup, within an hour I was blotting my oily skin. Not my favorite!
