      I'm not exactly sure ehow I feel about this product yet. I like it but definitely didn't expect it to be especially runny/watery. Seems to go on well, I tend to have oily skin and this hasn't broken me out or made my skin feel heavy. Overall I like it.

      This is a good spf and primer but not on my oily skin. When I use this I have to blot my face even after letting it dry to get the grease off. This would be Better for someone with combo to dry skin. I have olive skin tone and it didnt leave a white cast at all.

            Mmm.....will have to use it more to really decide if I like it or not. It's not like other sunscreens that come out as a cream. This was runnier and a bit a greasy. Absorbed well, but not sure how effective it is overall. If you use this with a moisturizer that also had sunscreen then you'll probably cover all your based.

                I'm so happy to have found this bareMinerals sunscreen. I've tried several brands of mineral sunscreens, both high-end and drug store, and this has become my new favorite. It's spf 50 with a high percentage of zinc, but it rubs in really easily and doesn't turn my face white. I wear it under my bareMinerals complexion rescue tinted moisturizer (spf 30). They wear well together, and they don't irritate my sensitive skin.

                    A:

                    This product can certainly be worn without foundation, alone, but please note that it provides no coverage. Micro-encapsulated pigments blend with your skin tone and dry to an invisible finish so you don't see white. It is formulated without oils, parabens or fragrance, so it's a smart choice for those with sensitive skin!

Depending on your skin type you have a few options, however the Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing Oil may be the best to try! It will leave your skin feeling soft and revitalized!
