Most Helpful Positive Review Fantastic daily SPF moisturizer
I recently purchased this again after a few years of using other cheaper SPF moisturizers. This lotion goes on nicely, leaving your face velvety feeling and not greasy. I have acne prone skin and have developed some melasma from the sun as well as pregnancy - this lotion actually makes my skin look a little clearer and definitely does not produce any acne/blemishes. It really provides great sun coverage without that "ghost white" appearance some other lotions leave.
Totally worth the money...and by the way, someone mentioned it makes their eyes sting and the lotion settles in the creases of their eyelids - this lotion is not to be used as eye cream (as stated on their warning label).
Most Helpful Critical Review It is okay
I chose this sunscreen because I could use it on my face as well as my body. I put it on in the morning and keep well away from my eyes but by the middle of the day my eyes are watering and they sting until I wash it off. Also it makes my face greasy.

I Like that the cream absorbs quickly and isn't shiny on your face. I wear it during aqua Zumba and when I shower afterwards I can tell the cream stayed on my face.

This product unlike many of Anthelios products, has a perfumed smell which is unappealing you me. I'm not able to use it. I'll look for it in a non perfumed form.

It's very thick (which is great for says that you're swimming or working out) but it also drips and gets in your eyes when sweating during a workout.
Greasy, white tint

I bought this hoping that it would layer under makeup. It was a greasy mess. It also left a significant white tint on my skin and I am already very fair.
Left a white cast

The product is called Melt-In milk but it hardly melts into your skin. It left an intense white cask on my arms. I was pretty disappointed. Otherwise the texture is nice and it smells pleasant. But I don't think it lived up to the reviews
This one is my go-to sunscreen
Wren from OK
This is my favorite daily-use sunscreen. Skin cancer runs in the family so I like to wear high SPF sunscreen on all exposed skin every day. I bought a bunch of different brands to try, and this is the one for me. It completely vanishes within a few minutes of application, leaving no weird smells or oily feel. It goes under makeup easily. It has never caused any damage to my clothes. Using this, I don't mind having to wear sunscreen anymore, so it's worth the cost.

I use a ton of this on my face and neck and it still absorbed pretty quickly and doesn't leave a cast. Makeup seems to go over it pretty well. Will definitely burn if you get it in your eyes, so just be really careful. It's really expensive, but worth it. I use a cheaper mineral sunscreen for kids on my body and this stuff only on face and neck to get some more use out of it. Doesn't aggravate my acne prone skin either.
Love love love 💛

I am a brown-skinned black woman and I love this chemical sunscreen. I have dry and acne-prone skin. I was looking for a sunscreen with no white cast and this one works very well for me. It's a lot of product for the price 👍🏽. It's did not break me out or irritate my skin (like other chemical sunscreens can do). It has a moisturizer consistency, not a regular "fluid sunscreen" but I still like it. It feels very velvety and moisturizing on the skin. It does have a chemically sunscreen smell to it which I don't really like but that will not stop me from continuing to buy it (but for some, this may be a deterrent). It's water resistant so you will need to use a oil/balm cleanser (I recommend DHC) to successfully break it up followed up with a foaming/milk cleanser. But also, DO YOUR RESEARCH before you buy any products.
Good for body, not face
LZ from Texas
Better than many sunscreens I've tried! Didn't work well on the face, though. I've got combo skin and the white clung to dry patches and eventually "pooled" in oily spots where it had previously melted in and looked invisible. It was good on my arms even though you still get a bit of that coated feeling. Dried down about 80% leaving minimal tackiness, better than other sunscreens that leave you feeling incased. Pretty pricey, too. The hunt for the perfect sunscreen continues..

I have brown/tan skin its not bad but it leaves a weird purple red tint on my skin and when I use a dewy primer it starts peeling off
Not totally bought on this, still on a search
vene from New York
My dermatologist recommended this brand. I actually bought and had gone through two. It is quite thick and creamy. I guess it should be good since I have dry skin but a tint is seen on my face after using. She recommended another but not quite sure what to use. Neutrogena is off my list for good.
Great face sunscreen

This has become my daily sunscreen for my face. I think I have just found the perfect sunscreen for every day.

Excellent sun screen! It truly is a melt-in suncreen and does not leave a ghostly tint to the skin!
My only sunscreen choice
anonymous from Wellington, Florida
This is the best sunscreen I've ever used. I spent quite a bit of time on the beach, applied as directed and no burn!!

Product review from Baltimore
It's very oily like generic sunscreen. The description says melt in .. doesn't have that melt in feature.
Leaves a white cast in my arms
Farina from The Woodlands, TX
I've used this product just on my body, since i prefer a tinted sunscreen for my face. It's greasy and leaves a horrible white cast in my arms. I ended up having to buy a different sunscreen for my body, way nicer, for a third of the price. Definitively, not worth the money.
Leaves white cast, but feels great overall
IZZY from Georgia
This feels great on the skin. Does not sting. But it does leave a slight white cast on my olive skin, but you may not notice if you are fair skinned.

Incredible Sunscreen, melts into your skin, not oily and keeps the awful rays at bay. I'm excited to try it out on my next adventure in space to see how it holds up
Great daily sunscreen
David B. from California
This is a wonderful, non-greasy sunscreen lotion that works great for daily facial use for UV protection.
Cassie Wassie from UP, MI
I am really disappointed in this sunscreen. I had high hopes for the velvet finish, but the finish is anything but velvet. It's greasy and sticky. It never really absorbed into my face and was sticky and greasy. As soon as I started sweating a little, it just ran off my face. I didn't expect it to be perfect, but it costs a lot of money for it to do perform as advertised. I'll be returning it for something else.
Seth from Los Angeles, CA
Love this stuff I use it for my face and body. Don't forget your neck, ears, backs of your hands! Not sure how well it works for makeup, however, if you're really serious about sun protection you need to keep reapplying sunscreen anyway. After it dries down a bit you can use powder over. It does leave a bit of a white cast but once it soaks into your skin (about 20 minutes) the cast fades away and isn't that noticeable. It's basically unavoidable with a good level of sun protection but you can also try tinted sunscreens if it bothers you a lot.

I have used this for about 5 years! It is the only product I will use on my face.
