        Comments about Julep No Excuses Invisible Sunscreen Gel:

        I love this product, perfect for if you have oily skin because it is a gel form and does not contain any oil. Therefore, it won't make you oily throughout the day, I also love that since it's clear it won't leave that weird white or blue residue on your face it simply blends away (perfect for if you're tan) - and on top of all this it'a not greasy.

          i love this sunscreen gel and i'm happy that i discovered it. it doesn't leave the white cast most lotion sunscreens leave on my face, and as an african-american woman this is a big deal for me. i have oily skin and wear minimal makeup, so this serves as a sunscreen, moisturizer and primer for me. it's not heavy or super greasy, glides on well, and does not have an annoying or overpowering scent. and i absolutely love that it contains rosehip oil. my only complaint is that the container isn't a little bigger. but overall, it's worth it and i've already purchased my second container.

            I use this every day after moisturizing and under my makeup. I wear a full coverage foundation and this is light enough that I didn't notice a huge difference when doing my make up one day to the next. This product does make my face really shiny though. If I don't want to look shiny for the next hour or so, I have to put something mattifying on after I finish my makeup.

              After trying every sunscreen under the sun (pun intended!), I'm now loyal to only this one! I can tell this will be my summertime staple, but even in the dead of winter, it still hydrates my oily/combo skin nicely without feeling heavy. Absolutely NO white cast. Almost feels like putting on an essence/serum instead of the typical smelly, thick sunscreen. Seriously, pick this up!!

                I just started using retinol and know how important it is to use sunscreen. After trying out several on my face, I would end up looking and feeling greasy. OK for the beach or waterpark on my day off, but not for work. I actually picked this up at an Ulta store after an associate had me try Bare Minerals Prep Step. (Also really good, a physical sunscreen that goes on sheer and doesn't leave a white cast.) They didn't think they had the Julep, but they did have it at the checkout. I have discovered that I actually get my best results by using BOTH of them! After washing I put on the Julep first, then after 10 min I apply the Prep Step. PERFECT! The Prep Step adds a matte finish to the Julep, and I get a second layer of protection. Win-win!

                  Before being introduced to this product I would never use a sunscreen because I hated the heavy feel of it. This gel glides on like a primer and disappears without adding any weight. I use this everyday!

                    This works well as an SPF. It's gel based, so it feels very light on my skin. However, It makes me shinny. I don't feel oily, but I look it. No matter how little I apply, there's always a slight sheen to my face. Not sure if that's true for all SPFs or this.

                        If using primer, apply on top (after) No Excuses. We recommend letting No Excuses dry down first to ensure complete SPF coverage/protection.

                        A:

                        Because No Excuses does not include any fragrance, you may detect a faint sunscreen smell from the ingredients itself. This should dissipate shortly after application.
