[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love how smooth this sunscreen is! It’s very lightweight and has no white cast. I love the green time because it reduces the look of redness on my face. The smell is very light, but not like your typical sunscreen.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like this sunscreen! Goes on smoothly, does not leave a white film on my skin. My only complaint is the packaging, it is a little clumsy to pump the cream out.

Does not blur redness

GirlMomBoyMom - 5 days ago, Verified purchaser
I wanted to love this product, because I really like their RESCUE BALM. I needed a green tinted SPF to reduce the appearance of red in my skin. I have rosacea, that I treat with a prescription gel, but still have terrible redness. This product does not blur redness as it’s advertised to do. The dual ability of one product to hide redness AND protect from sun exposure is very important.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this sunscreen as a gift last year and I will never try anything else. It goes on so nicely, leaves barely any white cast, and makes you look so glowy! This is one of my all time favorite mineral sunscreens.

Super light sunscreen

With other brands of facial sunscreen I’m very aware that it is there and can feel it sitting on my skin. This sunscreen is genuinely super light and makes me skin feel great.

Makes me ghost like

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Really wanted to love this but it's honestly a bit greasy and really doesn't do any sort of red buffering. And it turns me absolutely ghostly. It's sort of lightweight.

Best facial sunscreen I have ever used. Very light and you can't tell I'm wearing it (I believe it is zinc based so might be visible in those with darker skin, but I'm pretty light skinned). I have always had problems with breakouts due to sunscreen and for whatever reason this has not caused any issues at all. Not oily, very smooth.

Lightweight and not greasy

Gina K. - 14 days ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] One of my favorite sunscreens. Feels super light, not at all greasy. Goes on more like a serum or lotion than a traditional sunscreen. Perfect to use underneath makeup application since it does not feel oily. I was really impressed with it.

Does leave a bit of a white cast.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It’s pretty good in terms of covering up my redness, but it does make my skin a lot lighter. I make sure to reapply every two hours like it says, and the third time in the day my friend said I looked kind of pale. And yes, I was a bit paler than normal. So I’m trying out the other one to see. This one is good and all but just not the one for me, plus my skin starts to dry after a while.

Best Sunscreen

5 out of 5 stars
- 19 days ago
originally posted on Hero
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've tried my hand at all kinds of different sunscreens. Ones with different formulas and from tons of different brands and I have not liked a single one until I found this sunscreen. This sunscreen does NOT pill, leave white cast, or sting my eyes. It's lightweight and adds an extra layer of moisture. It does take a minute to fully blend into the skin. It layers perfectly under my makeup. The only thing is that I wish the bottle came in a bigger size because it runs out fairly quickly with daily use.

Best lightweight sunscreen!!

Rachael T. - 20 days ago

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I absolutely love this sunscreen! It's really lightweight and doesn't feel sticky on my skin. It's the only sunscreen I like to use when I'm wearing heavy makeup during the summer buy I use it all year long. I love that it doesn't have any whitecast at all. There's no greasy residue. Plus, it doesn't smell bad. It's very moisturizing and smoothing too. I definitely recommend it.

No white cast - note: it contains butyloctyl salicylate/octisolate

clee - 25 days ago, Verified purchaser
It leaves a slight white cast but not too noticeable. Note that this is not a 100% mineral sunscreen. It contains an ingredient called butyloctyl salicylate, or octisolate, which operates like a chemical UV filter and boosts the spf rating. Most mineral sunscreens also have this to prevent a white cast. If you experience any irritation, (which I did slightly - my face heats up and is sensitized when using chemical UV filters), please know it may be this ingredient. Otherwise, this is a great sunscreen!

Don’t buy this

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product is extremely confusing at best and at worst a lie. It calls itself a sunscreen, but on the back of the product it says it shouldn’t be used as a sunscreen—what the heck?!? If I buy it to use as a noncomedogenic sunscreen but I’m not supposed to use it as a sunscreen, then what’s the point of buying it in the first place. The only reason I gave it two stars is because it didn’t cause my skin to breakout. At least that’s not a sham.

Leaves a white cast

JennaMS - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
If you actually use 1/4 tspn like you should to actually get the SPF rating, this is going to leave a white cast. I’m pretty pale (NC 20 in MAC foundation) and I still could see the difference in my face and neck. Probably good if you wear makeup.

The Sunscreen I Didn't Know I Needed

5 out of 5 stars
Jennifer R. - 1 month ago
originally posted on Hero
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Obviously I know how important sunscreen is to my skincare routine, but after years of searching for the right one, I've finally found it. I started with the 10 ml size to avoid overspending in case I didn't like it - trying new products, am I right? I love that this goes on light and nongreasy and that it has the green hue. I have rosacea, so the added bit of help in normalizing my skin tone is AMAZING!
