huge let down

By jinny

from sacramento

Comments about Colorescience Online Only Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50:

I've heard great things about this product but I really didn't like it. You can't tell if the powder is dispensing from the container at all, I found myself pressing the button repeatedly and testing it out on my hand for a few minutes every time I wanted to use it. The instructions say to send it back if powder doesn't come out but that's gonna be a huge pain to do. I don't like not knowing if I have SPF on my face, or if it's been applied evenly. Bad bad bad.

      Didn't think it went on well. Couldn't tell where the powder was, so not sure of the coverage. Overall, I was disappointed in the product especially at the price.

          Looks great and blends easily. Gave a nice amount of coverage but both times I wore it I felt sunburned after being in the sun and got more tanned than I do with my usual Coola. Was hoping it would work but not for me. My skin is not even that sensitive and I have a medium skin tone so I can only imagine the sun protection is just not that great.

            This product is so convenient. I love that it's not greasy on my face and fits in my bike bag.

            The price is steep, but the product works. It's worth the slurge!

              Love this! I have very oily skin, large pores but you wouldn't know it when I use this product. I'm not oily all day nor does it accentuate my pores like some other powder type products. I've been in the sun all week and zero sunburn!

                This is the best new product out there! I cannot wear regular sunscreen as I am allergic to it and I break out from the oily ingredients. This makes applying sunscreen so easy. Just brush on and go! I never even used to wear sunscreen, but now my mom and I wear it religiously after she was diagnosed with skin cancer. Bravo to Colorscience for inventing this and becoming so big!! :)

                  I absolutely LOVE this sunscreen! It really protects my fair skin from sunburn. My husband and I ride a motorcycle and we're often out in 90 degrees plus for hours. This keeps us both protected. I couldn't believe he will actually wear it! The first time I "dusted" him, the guys in our motorcycle group poked fun at him, but now when we're out riding they want me to "dust" them too. He loves that it's not the typical greasy thick texture of typical sport suncreens. Well worth the $$ for this.

                      A:

                      We recommend cleaning the brushes every week or so by putting some rubbing alcohol on to a paper towel and gently wiping through the bristles with the brush facing upward. After wiping through, set the brush on its side to thoroughly dry before replacing the cap or repriming on the top of your hand to ensure it's dispensing fully before using for facial application again. Do not clean self dispensing brushes with soap/water as that will harden the minerals and cause the brush to be permanently clogged.

                      Thank you for your inquiry. The SPF50 Fair would best pair with the Fair IT CC+ shade. It is best for Porcelain to Fair skintones.

                      A:

                      Thank you for you inquiry. The SPF50 shades apply very sheer on the skin. We recommend going with the one closest to your skin tone for optimal blending.
                      Fair = Porcelain to Light complexions
                      Medium = most popular shade, matches well with 80% of most skin tones
                      Tan = Olive to Tan complexions
                      Deep = Deep to Dark complexions

                  • Q:

                    Since this only available online I am curious as to the color matching. More than likely, I would be a fair, but could the middle color be used as a bronzer or would it be too dark all over that it would create a dirty look? Don't want to have the white washed look that white setting powders create either though. It's just hard to know what color to purchase online. The best I can relate it to is that I wear bare minerals gel foundation in birch.

                      Hello Beccab,

                      Colorescience Sunforgettable SPF 50 Brush on Sunscreen is a sheer coverage and meant to be applied on top of your favorite BB, CC or Foundation. The Medium shade would work great if you use Birch shade in the BM gel foundation. It will warm the skin tone a little but not be too dark. Enjoy!
