  • A: Hi There! Thank you for asking about our CeraVe Hydrating Mineral Face Sunscreen Lotion. Sun protection is an essential step in your daily skincare routine. In fact, using broad-spectrum sunscreen daily is a fundamental part of protecting all skin types from the detrimental effects of UV rays—no matter your age. Without it, your skin is vulnerable to the host of issues sun damage can bring.1 To ensure your skin is getting all the protection it deserves, all of our mineral sunscreen formulas contain three essential ceramides to help restore and maintain your skin barrier and lock in moisture.

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!

I’m very fair skinned and have never noticed white casts.. this is like putting PURE WHITE paint on your face. After rubbing it in to try and save my face, it feels sticky and dry at the same time? Unless you want to put a foundation over every day, be prepared for a WHITE CAST

This product exceeded my expectations in some areas and left me disappointed in others. I was looking for a product that could be used for a quick and easy application that looked nice. The goal of my purchase was to use this to shorten the time it takes me to apply makeup. I wasn’t expecting much from the product other than it to give a light coverage, while protecting my poor easily sunburnt skin. I found that while it did shorten my makeup routine and gave me better coverage than I thought, it also was not a good shade match and left my skin looking greasy after application. My goal for using this product was to shorten my makeup routine time, and I found that it did just that. I was able to use this in place of a concealer I would normally put on to balance my skin tone a bit while not having to use foundation. With this product and some basic powder, I was able to completely be done with any skin covering needed. This sped up my routine as I did not have to take out different concealers and blend them in. All the application this product requires is just putting a small amount on your finger and rubbing it into your skin just like a normal sunscreen. Therefore, making it a quick and easy process. Another thing that left me pleasantly surprised with the product was the coverage was way better than I expected. When I first squeezed some out of the bottle, I was surprised at how pigmented the product is. As I was applying it, I was shocked at how well the sunscreen was able to balance my skin tone for just being a tinted sunscreen. The product is able to cover up redness well and leaves the skin a more balanced tone. Since the product is able to balance having SPF and good coverage, I was impressed. One downside of this product is that it was not a good shade match for my skin. There is only one color of this product, and it is advertised to be able to work for many skin tones. Unfortunately, my skin during the winter is too light and the product does not really match my skin color correctly. During the summer months it will hopefully match my skin tone, but as this product is advertised for all I was disappointed that it did not match. On my skin it looks too orange, and definitely not my skin tone. Another big downside of this product was the greasy look it gave my skin after application. I unfortunately already have an issue with my skin being oily in some areas, so I was not happy when the product only amplified it. The issue can be fixed temporarily with a powder, but it looks oily again after about an hour. This is what I was most disappointed in because I want to have the ability to wear it out and not have to worry about reapplying powder every few hours. Though it is sunscreen I was hoping that it wouldn’t have the same oily look that sunscreen gives you especially since it is a tinted sunscreen. Even though it has its faults I will still be using this product when summer rolls around; I will probably not purchase it again though. I have yet to test whether the product will protect my sun sensitive skin, but I think that it will. I hope this review was helpful and informative in making your decision to purchase this product. Have a good day!

this is by far the WORST sunscreen i have ever used. i have tried using this over just moisturizer, i have tried using this over serums and hydrating products and both times it gets soo crusty. i have to spray a hydrating facial mist over top just to get it to blend even a little bit. and don’t get me started on the white cast. i have a fair-medium skin tone and the difference between my face and neck is pretty noticeable. i’ve tried warming it up in my hands before putting it on, and ive even tried using less product. this product is just horrible. the only reason it doesn’t have a one star rating is bc the uv protect us actually amazing. but there are other sunscreens that are just as amazing. skip this product.

Hi there. Thank you for reaching out about the Hydrating Mineral Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 for Face Lotion. We are very sorry to hear that it did not meet your expectations. While this is very upsetting to hear, we appreciate you bringing this to our attention in order to understand where we can improve. We would like to recommend trying the Mineral Sunscreen Stick. Our SPF 50 sunscreen stick is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes, and the microfine zinc oxide gives you powerful sun protection that spreads easily and evenly, while also leaving a clear finish: https://tinyurl.com/yxrb6ep6. We thank you for your feedback and we hope you continue using CERAVE with great satisfaction!
