    I am in love with this product. My skin tends to be a bit oily, especially in the summer and humidity of New England. I absolutely hate sunscreens because they either make me break out or they feel slimy on the skin. This stuff is fabulous for me; it's a lightweight, elegant formula that works wonderfully on my skin without the nasty "sunscreen" side effects. It has a light and pleasant scent that doesn't linger; I'm not a fan of scented products on my face, but the upside is that it doesn't smell like sunscreen. This dissipates very quickly so I'm not bothered by it. I discovered something I didn't expect with this, too. It reduces the appearance of my pores and, if I buff on a bit of my mineral powder over it, they just disappear! I have a flawless complexion which stays put all day long. I can put away my foundation and tinted moisturizer for the summer and just use these two products for a smooth and protected complexion. The texture of this sunscreen is non-sticky, very light and fluid. You must shake it well before applying, and it has a slight tint to it to keep the telltale sunscreen "chalk-face" at bay. Once you blend the product in, the tint is invisible. I don't consider the price of the product a factor here; it beats the daylights out of biopsies and skin cancer. for the quality and staying power of this product, I'll bite the bullet. I will continue to purchase this as long as SkinCeuticals continues to make it.

    This is literally the worst sunscreen I have ever used in the past 9 years. Looking at the other good reviews, I really doubt I got the wrong product or wrong batch. I'm oily-combination but this product feels really like full of oils and if you dare put on the face, after hours you can still feel the greasy touch and you can also see the powder stuck at the pores and blackheads, if you look close enough. I usually put sunscreens that I dislike on my body so that I don't waste my money, but for this one, I cannot think of any way to utilize it, because it is dusty-colored tinted and I don't want to risk ruin my clothes.
    Great product

    I have used several bottles of this excellent sunscreen and have ordered the large size this time! The design of the container ensures that the product is always mixed well before it is applied. It goes on smoothly and has just enough tint to produce a great result, even without foundation. My skin is sensitive and reacts to some brands, but never to this one. The best anti-aging product is a good sunscreen and because this one is so easy to wear, with no white effect, you wear it all the time.

    I have learned that some mineral-based sunscreens use a form of Titanium Dioxide that is very hazardous to skin. There are two forms that are used - anatase, and rutile. In 2008, a peer reviewed study in Australia, found that nano anatase titanium dioxide in sunscreen was reacting with sunlight and breaking down the coating on steel roofing in a matter of weeks. This study was prompted by reports that coatings on roofs were breaking down in places where workers had inadvertently transferred sunscreen to roofs via skin contact. Many sunscreen manufacturers use the anatase form of T.O. I tried to contact Skinceuticals from their website, and couldn't find a link. I asked my dermatologist to ask a representative to find out if they used the anatse or rutile form of T.O., and they never answered, just stated that their sunscreen is very safe. So, if I could find out, I might give it more stars. As it is, I wonder why they won't give out this information freely.
    Awesome Sunscreen

    I began using this product after I had a basal-cell cancer removed. I use it daily and feel very confident that tho product will protect me from any further sun damage or cancer. I used this summer every time we went to the lake on all of my family members. No one got a single sunburn!! I also have sensitive skin and have had no problems with this product. I will use this sunscreen for the rest of my life!!
    Love it

    I absolutely love this product. Both this one and the Sheer Physical UV Defense are equally fabulous. I have acne-prone skin and these are so lightweight that they don't irritate my skin at all. It really is such sheer coverage. I can't say enough good things about everything I've tried from Skinceuticals.
