This lightweight, 100% mineral sunscreen is formulated specifically for those with oily, acne-prone skin, with broad spectrum SPF 50+ UVA/UVB filters. This facial sunscreen is enhanced with oil-controlling properties for a natural mattifying finish and powerful antioxidant protection. It provides maximum water resistance (80 minutes) and up to 8-hours of hydration. The sheer, lightweight and non-whitening texture will not clog pores, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin (hypersensitive, allergic and post-procedure) and for the entire family ages 6 months and up.
I had high hopes for this sunscreen after reading the reviews, but this one is not matte at all on me. It made my medium-dark (nc44) skin look purple. I tried to blend it in very well to get rid of the cast. It is not easy to blend when comparing to other amazing sunscreen textures I have tried. The cast was minimal after a lot of blending, but it did not blend well near my hairline at all. I look shiny, and if you touch your face, you will feel it. I have combination skin. Normal everywhere else and oily in the t zone.
Ok, so this is a great sunscreen for going on vacation. I used this on my recent Caribbean cruise, and I had zero sun damage, no breakouts, and I liked the matte finish for reapplying. However, for daily use, this isn’t for me. It really does leave a super matte finish and leaves a little bit of a white residue, even on my fair skin. I would recommend this for acne-prone skin and for times when you need waterproof protection, but for daily use and to get that radiance, stick with a moisturizer with sunscreen like Avene’s Hydrance SPF 25 or Obagi 360 SPF 30.
This is even great for dry skin, it just has a way more matter appearance compared to the other sunscreen lotion from Avene. This is the bomb!
