        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.

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

            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!

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

              I bought this before going on a trip to Hawaii and was excited because of the relatively high spf level. I have an allergic reaction on my face to most commercial sunscreens out there so I'm always looking for an alternative. While this didn't irritate my skin, it also didn't work as a sunscreen! I only wore it for the first day of my trip and my face was red and sunburned and peeling. I was only out in the sun for maybe 1.5 hrs total so I was very dissapointed in this product. Maybe it's good for workweek wear when you're exposed to sun for 10 minutes or so, but it does not work as an actual sunscreen. Very disappointed.

              High SPF but not thick

                I'm currently using Neutrogena's oil-free moisturizer with SPF 35 and wanted something with a higher SPF. Unfortunately, this isn't a moisturizer so I still need to put on a moisturizer prior to putting this on. Luckily, I have a large bottle of Tarte's maracuja oil that I was previously using for night time only. I've now found that the Dream Screen layers perfectly well on top and preps my skin for makeup. Although, it does have a great finish and I could easily skip makeup if I was in a rush. Another pro is that for a product with a high SPF, I like that it's not thick and gloppy.

                    I've been experimenting with sunscreens for my sensitive rosacea skin for a couple years now. This is by far the best one yet!

                    PROS- non greasy!, sunscreen smell dissipates quickly, no breakouts, non irritating.

                    Love this, it's wonderful if you have very sensitive skin.

                      Great product! I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and this sunscreen does not bother it. Also have oily skin and it doesn't increase the shine. Feels more like a light moisturizer then a sunscreen. Highly recommended.

                          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!
