Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Specialist Dream Screen Invisible Silky-Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Sunscreen For Face:

I bought this because I especially love Benefit products. I've never bought anything from them that I didn't love. I have had skin cancers removed from my face so I was looking for a broad spectrum sunscreen with high SPF that was light enough to go under or over makeup without messing it up. This does the trick. Goes on smoothly, it's light in texture and doesn't have a scent. The ONLY problem is that it leaves a slight sheen on your face, like you have slightly oily skin. I've had to put powder on top of everything to reduce this sheen, which I'm not thrilled about. I don't think I can get away from this, though, because every product with 30+spf seems to do the same thing. Must be the necessary ingredients causing it. Otherwise, I say it's a go!

          Comments about Benefit Cosmetics Specialist Dream Screen Invisible Silky-Matte Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Sunscreen For Face:

          This face sunscreen is pretty average. I wouldn't say that it is completely mattifying, but it is definitely not as greasy-looking as many other sunscreens are. It doesn't feel heavy, which is also great because the last thing you want is the feeling of a heavy layer on your face when in the sun or sweating. It is very liquidy. You have to shake it very well because the liquids inside separate. This face sunscreen does what it's supposed to do, but I don't think it is anything out of the ordinary. I would say that it is pretty good considering all the ther sunscreens that feel extremely greasy.

              I was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune condition that requires me to wear sunscreen all the time, but I didn't want to apply straight-up sunscreen on my face. This was recommended to me by one of the people working at the Benefit counter. They told me to mix two drops of the sunscreen into my foundation and apply as normal. It is incredibly light, absorbs easily, and seems to be unscented, or at least has a pleasant, neutral smell. My skin is combination oily, and this works great for me. Will keep using this for many years to come! Thank you Benefit!

                  Dream screen is ultra lightweight & invisible on the skin and can be worn under or over makeup! However, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours for the ultimate protection, especially if you're exposed to the sun!

                  Dream screen is a sunscreen, not a primer. If you're looking for a fantastic primer, try the POREfessional! This product quickly minimizes the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin - it's complexion POREfection in a tube!
