      Comments about BareMinerals Prep Step Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Shield Daily Prep Lotion:

      I did not buy this from Ulta, I actually recieved this in a Boxycharm box, BUT if you have oily skin this is not the sunscreen for you. This product makes all 3 of my different gel based moisturizers pill. It also, if i pat it into the skin to be very careful about the pilling, in about 2 or 3 hours I start looking really greasy and oily. I have normal to oily skin, and this makes me super oily. I wouldn't suggest it if you struggle with oil. If you have normal to dry skin, this would probably be fine to good. It does protect my skin (as long as it doesn't pill away).

            I have been on the hunt for a sunscreen that does not break me out and that is convenient for me to pick up for years. My manager recommended this a month ago and I decided to splurge, take a chance, and if it didn't work out, I could easily return it. Let me tell you something. I am in love with this product. It goes on beautifully, it does not break me out, and works perfectly under makeup. I have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin and this product works for me. I finally can wear sunscreen on my face! I won't leave anywhere without it.

              My skin is especially finicky. I've been on tje market for a good sunblock since I use retinol. The retinol tends to make my skin a little sensitive so many chemical sunblocks make my skin burn. This does not! It doesn't leave any white residue to my face, it's non greasy and applies easily. However, it is soooo drying. It sucks all the moisture out of my skin. I really like this but I think if your skin os. More dry, make sure you use a really good moisturizer.
