    This is a great sunscreen. I'm black and this doesn't leave a cast at all. It leaves you a little dewy, but nothing blotting papers can't handle. Wish it was bigger but no complaints.

      Comments about Julep No Excuses Invisible Sunscreen Gel:

      This sunscreen gel is aptly labeled because with this product, you have "No Excuse" not to put on sunscreen before stepping outside. This is actually one of the best sunscreen products I've used. It's so light (in a light pink gel form - and truly invisible) and does not have the typical sunscreen scent. Best of all, the combination of wonderful oils in it kept me moisturized all day. On those extra busy days, after toner, I apply this, which takes care of my hydration & sunscreen needs. I don't know how it does it, but my skin never felt dry or dehydrated at all. I'm impressed at this multi-tasking product!

        Comments about Julep No Excuses Invisible Sunscreen Gel:

        I have always hated sun block (even as a kid) because I already end up like a grease ball. I hate sun block because I ALWAYS break out--no matter the brand, or how natural a product is. I have rosacea and noticed that once I hit my 30s I would get little red veins on my cheeks from lack of protection. The last year I have been really trying to find ways to protect my skin. I can't ever wear makeup because I end up being allergic, or break out, and it clogs up my skin. Basically, the only things I wear now is a daily light moisturizer, eye liner, and mascara. Anything else makes me break out or I'm allergic. This product has been a GAME CHANGER!!!! It is amazing. I put it on first, then my daily facial lotion after a minute or two. No breakouts, no rashes/allergic reactions, etc. It has like a shine to it when I first apply it to my face, but after 20 minutes or so, that goes away. I don't feel greasy gross. I am in love with this product. I would get it for any men/women--as there is NO scent!

              Not greasy great everyday sunscreen. I have used Hawaiian Tropic oil free silk for face SPF30 and I always break out. This kept my skin free of breakouts. The only downfall is the price. Small bottle and I purchased this on sale for 40 percent off. Otherwise I would give 5 stars.

              I have acne prone combo/oily skin and this product doesn't break me out or cause me to be oily or extra greasy, also doesn't leave a white cast on my olive complexion, only complaint is I wish you got more product for the cost...I purchased mine when it was on sale for approx 40% off.

                I don't use SPF because I always break out. This is so far the only product I have used that offers SPF coverage and doesn't cause a breakout. I have been using it every morning and I am happy with the results.

                  This worked for my combination oily/dry skin. I even love the Rosehip Seed & Camellia Seed Oils that are part of the ingredients as it tells my skin I've got enough on already, thereby indirectly controlling oiliness. And because of that, I appreciate the hydration and slightly dewy look I get afterwards. It absorbs well and feels light on the skin. And surprisingly, it's not greasy at all. I'd say the typical sunscreen smell is almost non-existent. The only thing I dislike is that there doesn't seem to be enough product to last a month, at least. I'm glad I didn't pay full price.

                  • Q:

                    I know No Excuses provides a broad spectrum, i.e. UVA/UVB protection. But does anyone specifically know the Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) rating of the sunscreen? For reference, with PA system used by Japanese sunscreens, PA+++ is equivalent to PPD of 8-16. Thanks!

                      A:

                      There are a few different methods for UVA testing, Broad Spectrum is the system for the US, while PA+,++,+++ is used for Japan, and PPD for Europe.

                      Unfortunately we do not have have the PPD (Persistent Pigment Darkening) rating available at this time. However, we can confirm that No Excuses does provide you with Broad Spectrum - UVA/UVB protection.

                      A:

                      No Excuses has a water-based formula that provides a quick dry down and minimal transfer. The formula has been tested to be hypoallergenic, but has not yet been tested for use around the eye area. If you have concerns in regards to eye sensitivity, we suggest avoiding use around the eye area altogether.

                      No Excuses has not gone through testing to validate claims of non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, or safe for acne-prone skin.

                      However, it has been validated to be Hypoallergenic, meaning it did not cause any sensitivity or irritation to test subjects during the test period.
