Love this product
Posted 1/14/2016 by MN-girl
I have sensitive skin that is fairly light in color. I tend to get pink often and have also been diagnosed with rosacea. This product has been excellent for my skin. Best of all, it doesn't sting or irritate like some similar products. Although it looks a little orange coming out of the tube, it seems to disappear once it's applied - while still providing a small amount of camouflage for skin imperfections. I find it to be lightweight but I'm able to use it I place of a moisturizer in summer. I love, love this product it and use it year round.

Love the way this makes my skin feel and the protection is awesome. No burns and does not clog my highly sensitive skin!
This product is amazing!

Great SPF coverage and has the perfect tint. It gives you a nice healthy glow and looks so natural. I have sensitive skin and this product does not irritate my skin at all.

I received a sample of this product from SkinCareRX, the kitten's mittens of skin care products. I had applied a different, new SPF 50 sunscreen over my awesome moisturizer and had a stinging reaction. I washed it off and applied this sunscreen which, to my surprise, is tinted. It helped reduce the stinging and, another surprise, somehow managed to strongly resemble a slightly matte version of my natural skin tone, which is Norwegian fair. Maybe the tint and zinc oxide cast balanced itself with the tint for the surprising finish...who knows. But it helped me out in a fix and did pleasantly interesting things.

This is by far the best sunscreen on the market. Just spent 2 weeks in Maui with no sunburn! Great tint if you don't want to wear foundation.
Posted 11/24/2015 by Magicbmd
Light weight. Great for sensitive skin.
Love it, but can't get it off!
Posted 11/22/2015 by Cara
I love the look, feel and protection of this sunscreen, but I can't seem to remove all of it! I have tried so many cleansers (prefer those that don't require a washcloth for remover), but can't seem to get this off....I'm always left with a residue of this after washing.

Received the sample and this is my second order of the full size. This one of the best sunscreen for the face and neck. When I'm in a hurry I can go without foundation. It is very easy to apply, not greasy, there's no fragrance and looks very natural and it works as described.
Posted 10/14/2015 by Pamela
I'm on my second bottle. It has just the right amount of tint that even in my mid-fifties I can go without foundation with this product.
Great for summer
Posted 10/12/2015 by Hilary
I was using this all summer instead of the clear Elta MD SPF 46 figuring the waterproof quality and light tint would be good for sweaty, no-makeup days. It worked really well, although the tint didn't do as much as I'd hoped to even out my skintone - it was barely perceptible on my fair skin. But, will continue to use for summer, skiing, etc.
I actually use this as makeup
Posted 9/19/2015 by BH
This stuff is awesome--I've bought it several times. It goes on totally smooth (no clumping of the tint anywhere like some other tinted moisturizers I've used) and has just the right amount of coverage for me to basically use it as makeup. I layer a little bit of powder over top after it dries to take away any shine and I'm done. I am pretty fair, with skin that is more dry/sensitive. This always feels good (no stinging).
Posted 9/7/2015 by Lisa B.
I love this sunscreen. It works well on my oil skin. I was worried about the tint would be too light for my olive skin but it seems to blend well to my skin tone.
Works and makes my skin look so even
Posted 9/1/2015 by Nicole
I got a sample of this and got so many compliments when using it that I decided to buy the full size. I don't wear makeup, can't stand the feeling of makeup on my skin. So the fact that this does double duty in making my skin tone so even, while protecting me is awesome. As with most sunscreens, especially with tint, make sure not to rub it once you've applied it. And be careful when wearing white - it will get on your clothes.

I was looking for a physical sunblock because some chemical ones sting my face and eye area. I wanted one that had at least 5% zinc, had a tint, no fragrance, and did not have alcohol in it. This sunblock met all the criteria. The bonus was that it was 3 ounces and reasonably priced. It was light and easy to apply compared to some high content zinc sunscreens. I experienced no stinging. However, it can get chalky (I have light-med skin tone). You do have to make sure to blend. And it can turn white when I sweat. But still, this is one of the better ones I have tried. Very glad to have found this.
Really like it except it's a bit dry..
Posted 8/12/2015 by Chloe
I really like the texture of this sunscreen! I have combination skin but it's not oily/greasy at all. I also like that it has a really sheer tint, perfect on the days I don't want to wear foundation. But the sunscreen can be a bit dry after applying...may even produce flakes if I forgot to well moisturize my skin.
Posted 8/10/2015 by Val
I love that this sunscreen is chemical free. I have very sensitive skin and can't use many sunscreens, this one is great. It's just enough tint.
Posted 8/10/2015 by Snow White
Best sunscreen ever. My search for the HG is over. I'm super fair, super sensitive, and super picky. This works great with makeup or without. Tint is sheer but enough on a hot day when you can't bear to put on foundation. I think I'm hooked up for life with this stuff! I hope.
Really like this sunscreen
Posted 8/6/2015 by Hilary
I really love the light, non-greasy texture and high SPF of this sunscreen - I actually do, finally, wear sunscreen daily thanks to discovering this and it feels like a beauty product instead of an obligation.
Posted 7/31/2015 by WENXIN
I love this. A little bit tinted but very natural. But I just got a little breaking out after using several times. Maybe it just doesn't fit me. Pity
Elta MD 41
Posted 7/4/2015 by Donna
Best sunscreen that I've tried - and I've tried many! Nice light texture, absorbs quickly and evenly without sticky residue or white film and has a slight tint if you want to go fresh-faced for the summer! Recommended highly.
Best I've found
Posted 7/3/2015 by Sherry
I have very fair and sensitive skin. I've had trouble finding a product that didn't irritate my skin. This has been great and I love the light tinted color for those days I don't wear foundation.
Very Good Sunscreen
Posted 6/29/2015 by Eva
Got this as a sample & really loved the texture, the light tint & how it gave me a little "makeup" coverage along with great sun protection. After using it daily, however, I did start lightly breaking out, so I don't think this is for me. Too bad, because it is really nice.
Elta md 41
Posted 6/24/2015 by yellow
I was introduced to this sunscreen at a spa a few years ago and loved it since. I've reordered it many times and have recommended this to many friends. I have super sensitive skin and some dry spots (many cheeks). It would be perfect if it were more moisturizing so I wouldn't have to apply a moisturizer beforehand, but it's a great product overall. The tint is very natural and evens out my skin tone. I love it!
Buy this brand!
Posted 6/24/2015 by LY
I got a sample of this with my last order and tried it on a beach vacation. I LOVED it so much that I bought it as soon as I got home. I also bought the SPF 40 tinted one just to compare the two. I love them both. This one has a touch less tint which I like if I'm wearing makeup over it versus just wearing it (the other one) as a tinted primer. Will re-buy over and over.
Posted 6/5/2015 by Patty
Elta MD is known for their sunscreens. This is a non-chemical sunscreen. It's broad-spectrum SPF 41.It's lightly tinted & is sweat proof. It never breaks me out & also works well under makeup. This is my favorite!
Posted 5/28/2015 by Hannah
But the best is still Skinceuticals sunscreen, in my opinion. This is more matte and silicone-textured.
Elta md tinted sunscreen
Posted 5/1/2015 by taylor
Love, love, love this product. I have used this sunscreen for several years. It goes on smooth with just the right amount of tint. I can wear it under foundation or even without foundation. I would recommend to anyone who likes a little color to their sunscreen.
No sun yet

Smells good, seems lightweight and easy to use. Hoping for sun!
THE BEST SUNSCREEN
Posted 4/25/2015 by MONA
I have a very sensitive skin and I could never find a sunscreen that would not make me break out. So I did an online research and I came across Elta MD UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41. After reading good reviews, I decided to try it. I am sooo glad I did. It doesn't make me break out all and it goes on so smoothly under my makeup. I wear this every single day. I love it!
Posted 4/20/2015 by yoojin
I like the texture, and it does not make my skin dry as some other products do. The color is very light, so it can go with any skin colors.
Posted 3/23/2015 by Jodi
This is my everyday go to. Does not smell, stick or feel oily under make up. I like the sheer tint too for added coverage under powder. Excellent price for the product!
Great everyday sunscreen
Posted 3/11/2015 by NorCal
A friend recommended this Elta MD sunscreen, and I can see why. It goes on smooth, has a clean smell, isn't sticky or greasy, and in fact, even seems to give my skin a matte finish for the day. I put it on under makeup, after moisturizer, each morning. Highly recommend. The tint is on the lighter side, so something to consider if you have darker skin (not sure how it will be with a tan either).
A must have
Posted 2/22/2015 by ADK
I have switched to the barrier types of sun protection--zinc oxide and titanium oxide and have tried several different brands, such as Marie Veronique and Blue Lizard. This is the best lotion I have found. It is lightly tinted and glides on smoothly; it has a wonderful silky feel to it. There is no discernible odor, always a bonus.
Super Sun Screen
Posted 1/10/2015 by Nancy
This is one of the best values in tinted sunscreen. I had been using a much more expensive product but have switched to Elta because it is every bit as good and a better value.
Wonderful for sensitive skin
Posted 1/3/2015 by Leslie
Love this sunscreen. I have eczema and some rosacea and am allergic to propylene glycol. My doctor recommended this and I have not been disappointed. It is sheer, has a wonderful mousse like texture and melts into my skin. It goes on with a tint that disappears after you rub it in. Have taken it on two sun related vacations and had no burning with it. No sensitivity. Wear it every day, with or without make up, and was getting towards the bottom 1/3 of the tube after 8 months. Passed it on to my 16-year-old daughter who also loves it and opened a new tube for me. Can't say enough good things about this product.
the best sunscreen
Posted 12/21/2014 by Mari
i always come back to this sunscreen, great product
Posted 12/14/2014 by qiao
I like it. It's a good product.
Great Value & Exceptional Quality
Posted 12/5/2014 by Angela
This is my favorite sunscreen: high spf with enough color to even out my skin tone, and feels like a whipped mousse on my skin. I use this everyday, and a tube easily lasts me 6 months.
Posted 12/3/2014 by denise
Easy to use, love the hint of color, and a bottle lasts a long time. My favorite facial sunscreen without question.
Perfect for the $$
Posted 11/4/2014 by msingletary
I have Lupus and very concerned with total UVA/UVB blocking ability of a sunscreen. It's a huge bonus that I don't have to use a thick and greasy sunscreen anymore to get full protection. This product works like a light moisturizer and make-up in one. It's reduced my morning time spent getting ready and decreased my cosmetic budget!!!!
Posted 9/20/2014 by Jacqueline
I almost titled this as the 'Perfect Suncreen' but the product is so much more. This tinted moisturizer has replaced my foundation. (I am almost 50 years old and have always used foundation.) I use a foundation brush to apply the tinted sunscreen evenly. The product is light and I thought it would not last the day or protect from the sun, but it definitely does. Best of all, I was prone to cystic acne around my chin and this sunscreen has made a huge difference. My condition has dramatically improved.
Posted 9/6/2014 by Laura
I no longer use any other foundation.... I had been using a very expensive foundation and sun screen moisture as base.... have changed entire regime. Also use this on upper chest and neck... really a fabulous product
Only sunscreen I use
Posted 9/3/2014 by joyce
Goes on smooth. I use it year round instead of liquid makeup. Very satisfied. Been using it for years.........
Posted 9/3/2014 by Christine
If you are outside often, and need to look perfect, this is the product for you. this is like a combo product. it applies like a high end moisturizer, is tinted to perfect skin, and feels great (not greasy) on. I bought this prior to a trip to Florida, and I really liked it. it saved my face and kept me looking great in the heat for hours.
So in love!
Posted 2/2/2014 by Dorian
This is THE best sunscreen! It was sent as a sample awhile ago and I have been hooked since. I just ordered my 3rd or 4th tube. I always mix this with my moisturizer on my fingertips and apply them together. It has just enough tint to help even my skin out just a tad when I have to run out without make up. I use this year round- NEVER missed a day!
Posted 11/28/2013 by BM
This product is recommended by my dermatologist. I have been using this screen for few years already. It is light weight, non greasy and light coverage. The best thing about this sunscreen is that it doesn't break me out like some of the high end drug store brands. It will be a great coverage for those who has minimal acne scars. Definitely give this a try If you are looking for chemical free and light weight sunscreen.
The best...and I've tried them all.
Posted 6/28/2012 by Maggie
Please don't ever stop making this!! I was a lifeguard in the 90s and even though I stopped going in the sun over 10 years ago, was just diagnosed with a small basal skin cancer on my face which was removed. Now it's imperative that I always wear at least spf 30 and I spent hundreds and hundreds trying to find a sunscreen that didn't cast a white glow, leave an oil slick, etc. I use Elta over my moisturizer and it's AWESOME. No shine, no white glow, no breakouts. And I save money because I ditched my foundation. Thank you, Elta!!
Posted 6/11/2012 by Claudia
I've always hated wearing sunscreen...the white residue, the greasy film, the obnoxious smell, the breakouts, the rash, the pimples, the eye irritation...That is until I found EltaMD tinted sunscreen. This is by far the best sunscreen, specially for people with ultra sensitive skin like myself. It dries to a smooth matte finish, the light tint covers minor imperfections, make up or concealer go well if you wait a few seconds until it dries. It does not run off or sting your eyes, even at the gym. And no more breakouts! Thank you EltaMD!
Posted 6/1/2012 by Lindsay
This is my all time favorite sunscreen, and my first preference out of all the Elta MD line. I have very acne-prone skin, but have never broken out in the six months I've been using this product. It goes on smoothly, and with my fair skin, gives me a little bit of a tan under makeup. There's not too much coverage from the tint, so it's perfect for using alone, or under powder or concealer. It's actually a pretty good price for what you're getting: high quality and a lot of product. I use one teaspoon-sized amount every day for my face/neck area, and one tube has lasted me five months! Not bad! As one buyer wrote, I wish it was just a tad bit more moisturizing. If you do use a moisturizer underneath this, you have to wait a few minutes for the moisturizer to soak in before applying the sunscreen; it ends up pilling a little otherwise.
Best Chemical Free Sunscreen
Posted 5/6/2012 by Diana
Goes on smooth. Perhaps a slight white cast to the skin, but the best I've found thus far. My dermatologist gave me a sample and I loved it. Happy I was able to find it on line and save a bit, as it is pricey. But worth every penny. I live in south Texas with an active 9 year old son, so I need a sunscreen that I can count on. Wore it this weekend to a soccer tournament and it preformed well.
Nice, light coverage
Posted 5/6/2012 by georgene
I love this sunscreen product. The tint blends in well and the product does not feel greasy or heavy.
Great Sunscreen for Sensitive Skin
Posted 4/25/2012 by Megan
Best Sunscreen I have tried yet. It is a bit like a tinted moisturizer, so great for evening out the skin tone a bit. Since it is tinted it really helps with the 'white cast' that some some zinc sunscreens can cause. You dont have to worry about looking like a ghost with this sunscreen. I have extremely sensitive skin with rosecea that is acne prone. I have been using it for a bit over two weeks now and so far no probelms. Two weeks is usually my mark when I can tell if my skin is going to tolerate a skincare product. The only reason I gave it 4 starts is because I wish it was a bit more moisturizing so that I could eliminate my moisturizer prior to putting on my sunscreen. GREAT PRODUCT!
Great oil-control and skin tone!
Posted 6/16/2011 by Lauren J.
I've been looking for the perfect sunscren for a long time, and I finally found it! I liked Elta MD Clear because I have acne-prone, oily skin, but I felt like it made me a little shinier than usual. The UV Physical controls oil all day and really evens out my skintone. I've only been using it for a week, but no breakouts yet. Love this product!
It is a bit drying but overall I like this sunscreen.
Posted 4/3/2011 by Julia
It is a bit drying but overall I like this sunscreen. I recommend it to all people who prefer physical sunscreens. It is tinted so as previous reviewer mentioned '
Posted 9/26/2010 by Laura K
I really like all Elta MD sunscreens. They are the best and they truly work. I have battled with melasma for years and these products really keep my skin spot free. This one is my fave b/c it controls oil during the day, works as a tinted moisturizer (better than Laura Mercier) providing just enough coverage, and protects!
Awesome Chemical Free Sunscreen
Posted 8/17/2010 by Michelle S.
I REALLY like this sunscreen. It has a slight tint to it which helps to off-set any 'white cast' you normally get with a chemical free sunscreen. My skin looks so pretty with this. No breakouts or irritation which is another huge plus for me. I am also using the HydroPeptide SPF 30 sunscreen and love it as well. It makes my skin look great. I don't wear foundation anymore since I discovered both of these products.
