        leave a white cast, very heavy

        By Haley

        from Sacramento, CA

        Comments about CeraVe Face Sunscreen 50 with Zinc Oxide Broad Spectrum SPF 50:

        I gave this a shot because CeraVe is gentle on the skin, natural. and affordable, but this product is not worth it. It is heavy on the skin and never sets in. It sticks to your hairline and leaves a white cast over the face and is terrible under makeup. I would not buy this again.

        Doesn't blend well, leaves white residue

        By AM

        from Florida

        Comments about CeraVe Face Sunscreen 50 with Zinc Oxide Broad Spectrum SPF 50:

        The SPF was great, but I noticed that I would have white pasty residue on my face no matter how much I rubbed it in. It also didn't mix well with my make up on over it. Cheaper than LaRoche Posay brand, but not great quality. I won't use it again.

          I was looking for a sunscreen that didn't contain chemical ingredients, CeraVe was perfect. Goes on well and does not leave a white cast on you face. Also, it does not make my eyes sting after application like the one I was using previously.

              Comments about CeraVe Face Sunscreen 50 with Zinc Oxide Broad Spectrum SPF 50:

              So, there are a lot of complaints about this sunscreen, and I understand why. If I put this on alone, it will make white clumps and it just doesn't rub in well. It also makes me look ghostly white. But if I mix this with my CeraVe moisturizer, it doesn't make me look white, it rubs in fine, and it acts as a primer for my makeup and keeps it from getting greasy and breaking down during the day. However, I'm not sure if this will work on darker skintones.

                Wouldn't use it for daily use if you've got a darker complexion, only if you have fair skin or maybe even if you're purple cause it looks purple on me

                  Lightweight but not as dry as I like. I have very oily skin so need SPF that is oil-free.
