Not the best

2

I bought this as I have sensitive skin. However I won't repurchase, it works in the sense that it protected my skin against sunburn. However it leaves a white cast on the skin, it doesn't sink in properly and dries it out. It makes my skin look purple-white and flakey.

Very disappointed

1

Bought this as I've been struggling to find a sunscreen that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and this claims to be "formulated to minimize risks of allergic reactions". Unfortunately after 2 uses my skin is so painfully dry I've had to discontinue use. The white cast is also very strong - as a mineral sunscreen I expected a bit of a white cast but this is unwearable even on my very pale skin.

Awful

Very greasy, and leaves your skin feeling dry somehow. White cast is very bad

Mineral sunscreen

I have intolerant skin and i use this sun cream for a while now. The texture is a bit thick but it does a great job and is super gentle.

I bought this sun cream as i wanted a mineral filter and this is the only one my skin tolerates! I recommend for all who have very sensitive / reactive skin

please dont buy it

1

although it is made of physical blockers, don't buy it if you want to wear it daily and look like a ghost, don't buy it if you are a person of color because it's really white/blueish. it may be the best option for babies or for the beach but for daily use, no. the pricing does not match the quality.

Perfect for sensitive skin

5

I have a sensitive skin and react badly to most ingredients in sunscreen. Even most "sensitive skin" products often give me a headache. This product has no fragrance and causes no reaction to form on my skin, and no headache. It spreads very nicely on my face and dries to a matt finish once I moisturise my skin properly beforehand. The sun hasn't been strong enough for me to form an opinion on the effectiveness of the protection. But the white cast, which I'm fine with since this is a mineral sunscreen, already lets me know that an adequate protection is provided for daily use. It's pricey for the quantity but I'm satisfied with the quality.

thick paste

2

even though this sunscreen will provide good protection from the sun it is a very thick white paste like cream that does not rub in well. It leaves a very white cast on my pale skin. It pills up a lot also and does not wear well under make up. I would not recommend this unless its for young children or you don't mind a heavy white cast

My favourite suncream

5

I've been using this most days for the past year. It is quite thin and non greasy but has prevented sunburn very well aside from the occasional day at the beach (which I think was my fault for not reapplying properly). I also like that it's ingredients are deemed safer than many suncreams by the EWG database. It is very very white and makes my already very pale complexion look even paler but it doesn't make so much difference that it's noticeable. It also seems to blur my large pores which I appreciate.

Not for me

It feels so thick when applying and pills like crazy. I can’t see how this would work for anyone unless your skin is extremely oily (I have combination skin). However once it’s on it doesn’t feel too drying and it isn’t the worst white cast I’ve ever tried (hello cerave and neutrogena) so i’ll give it that at least. If you aren’t fair skinned you’ll probably hate this. I guess my search for the perfect mineral spf 50 continues
