Description

CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 is a 100%-mineral, hydrating, oil-free face sunscreen with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide which are compliant for sale in Hawaii and Key West and form a protective barrier on your skin to help reflect UVA and UVB rays without irritating sensitive skin. Mineral face sunscreen has three essential ceramides to help restore the skin’s barrier and provide long-lasting hydration, as well as niacinamide to help calm skin. CeraVe hydrating sunscreen lotion is allergy tested, paraben-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, oxybenzone-free, octinoxate-free, non-comedogenic and suitable for sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients:
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are 100% mineral sunscreen filters that form a protective layer on the skin to help reflect the sun’s rays

Q: Titanium Dioxide has what function? See it is 6% in the SPF30 Face and 9% in the SFF50 Face. Thank you for explaining.

submitted by Nancy H - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Nancy H! We appreciate your interest in our Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion. Titanium dioxide is a naturally occurring mineral that's used in a variety of products, including sunscreens. Because of its ability to help protect the skin from the widest spectrum of UV light, including both UVA and UVB rays, sunscreens with titanium dioxide are ideal for both daily and prolonged sun exposure. It is often used in combination with zinc oxide. Titanium dioxide works to reflect and scatter damaging UVA and UVB rays off the skin’s surface. This helps prevent sunburn and long-term sun damage. We hope this information helps!

First impressions: •lightweight •once blended, it actually looked ok •SPF 50 + Mineral Sunscreen Dislikes: •the obvious white cast •attached to my dry spots •sunscreen stays in my brows If you can get over being white for a bit, it’s actually a pretty good sunscreen. I make sure I let my moisturizer and everything else set before I put the sunscreen. Once sunscreen is on, I rub it in and 15 min later the white cast goes away. I usually add a tinted moisturizer on top of that as well so that I can at least look like I’m not dead.

Hello Macy! CeraVe Hydrating Sunscreen is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens utilize titanium and/or zinc oxide particles to form a barrier that reflects the sun's rays away from the skin. Because the ingredients stay on the surface of your skin, a white cast can sometimes remain after applying the product. We suggest applying a small amount in the palm of your hands and rubbing them together. Then, apply to one small area at a time, rubbing well. The formula should apply easily leaving a lightweight, non-greasy feel. Keep in mind, all sunscreens should be applied liberally for sun protection. We hope these tips help and we thank you so much for your honest feedback!

Disappointing, even after a few tries

I love the other CeraVe products but this one was so disappointing. It does not blend with other products (lotion, makeup) at all and leaves a very noticeable white cast, even on pale skin. I've tried to use it a few times, a few different ways, with different products, and completely on its own. It still does not perform. I am going to return this product, it's not usable.

I am very pale and burn easily, so I need sun protection that can stand up to the elements and protect my skin from burning. This was a product I’d not yet tried. Upon first use, it took a lot of effort to fully rub in. This has been a common experience with sunscreen products, so I wasn’t put off by that. What I was put off by was the blueish appearance I was left with after applying this to my entire face. I don’t know how comfortable I would be going outside/in public looking like this, like I’ve been deprived of oxygen for an extended period of time. Same goes for this product for the body. Would not repurchase.
