I’ve been looking for a mineral sunscreen for a while now and this one has been the best one so far. I am pretty tan so when first applied, it makes me look purple, but once it soaks in, the purple disappears. I do also have to make sure that my skin is well exfoliated and moisturized otherwise the sunscreen settles on any dry patches of skin. I love the water resistance and that’s its SPF 50. Overall a mineral sunscreen that works well on my tan skin.

Not oily. No strong smell. Does have a white cast, but I was able to blend it in (I have fair skin). My skin did not break out, but it left it looking a little dry. I may try this again in the summer when I don’t need as much moisturizing.

I’ve been using this sunscreen for about a week and I’m loving it!! I’ve had a lot of trouble settling on a sunscreen bc I always have trouble with them burning my eyes, breaking me out, leaving a greasy finish, or in the case of CeraVe, literally making my skin look purple. I have none of those problems with this one!! It hasn’t burnt my eyes or broken me out (even when I’m at the gym and sweating a ton), and it has a really great natural finish. You can also literally slather this stuff on and it will still rub in and dry natural. my ONLY complaint is that the bottle is so small, but the sunscreen itself is phenomenal!!!

I have to tell you, the Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Sunscreen is a total game-changer! And guess what? It doesn't leave any of that annoying white cast on my skin. Seriously, it's like magic! This sunscreen is so lightweight and blends in like a dream, leaving my skin feeling smooth and protected without any greasy residue. Plus, it's got broad-spectrum SPF coverage, so I know I'm shielded from those pesky UVA and UVB rays. The best part? It's gentle enough for sensitive skin, which is a big win for me. Since I started using this sunscreen, my skin feels so happy and hydrated, and it's got this gorgeous radiant glow. If you're on the hunt for a sunscreen that's effective, lightweight, and won't leave you looking like a ghost, you've gotta try the Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Face Sunscreen. Trust me, it's a total must-have for your skincare routine!

Helps tone down the look of redness and neutral skintone.

This is going to sound crazy, but I buy this sunscreen specifically because it has a lot of white cast. I feel like the white cast helps tone down my redness on days when I don’t feel like wearing any foundation products or color correctors. Because I have a lighter skin tone, it works for me because once I blend the product in the white cast is not as noticeable but my neural complexion ends up looking brighter and the yellow tint in my neutral skin tone gets neutralized a little bit. I also like that this product goes on dewy, which makes it super easy to spread and blend on your skin, but eventually dries down to a more matte look. The scent has a classic sunscreen smell but doesn’t smell as chemically as some sunscreens tend to smell. I have noticed that my skin does not break up when I use this product.

I have very fair, sensitive skin and used to own a baby store featuring safer baby products, so I've tried A LOT of mineral-based sunscreens over the years. This sunscreen is the best I've ever found. It's easy to apply, truly not greasy and washes off my hands easier than other natural sunscreens. Don't ever stop making this product!

I have extremely oily skin and my HG sunscreen was missha soft finish sunmilk. Every mineral sunscreen up to this point felt thick on my face and left a hard white cast. Decided to try this sunblock due to pregnancy and was pleasantly surprised. It does not exacerbate my grease and even helps decrease the look of oil. I have light skin and it does leave a very mild white cast, not sure if that applies to darker skin. It also blends in easily and feels lightweight.

I'm very pale and this gives me a greyish dead looking cast. Also, I have sensitive eyes and this is one of those sunscreens that burns your eyes throughout the day making my eyes look very red. Would not recommend.

This is one of the 2 sunscreens that dont irritate my husband. He used it multiple times a day when we were in Hawaii (UV index can go to 11), and it did a good job protecting his skin from sunburn. I hope Cetaphil carries this sunscreen for years!

It has 50 which is really good. The texture is runny. There isn’t any strong scent. But one problem is that it leaves a white cast on your face other than that it’s good.

I knew going into this product I was going to get a white cast, given that it is a mineral based sunscreen. However, I will say the white cast improves as it dries down. When it does it is just muah *chefs kiss* it leaves such a pretty glow on the skin without making you feel overly oily. My makeup stays on all day and does not wear off like it does with other sunscreens. This is honestly such a great sunscreen for the price!!

i purchased this for 2 reasons: i trust the Cetaphil brand & the package stated it was ‘sheer’. It is far from sheer. It is similar to the consistency of white paint. I wouldn’t recommend. Perhaps if you have ample time to continue rubbing it into your skin, it will absorb, but it will still leave an opaque white film. I would return, but i think i waited too long

I love this sunscreen. It really moisturizes well, and doesn't cause my sensitive skin any harm. It has a white cast, but that's to be expected with a mineral sunscreen. I would definitely recommend this!

I have been using this product for about a year now and this stuff is amazing. The consistency seemed really runny when I first used it but it turns out thats what makes it so easy to apply. I don’t find that it leaves a cast at all. I apply it on top of Cetaphil’s daily hydration moisturizing cream and I find that it leaves my skin feeling soft and not at all greasy. I have sensitive skin and eczema and it hasn’t caused any issues yet. I hope they never stop making it!
