Rated 4.28 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review nice, thin liquid, easy to apply
I've been testing out sun protection products recently (mineral formulas only) and out of the few I've tried (Juice Beauty Oil Free SPF 30, Juice Beauty Stem CEllular CC w SPF, Stila BB SPF 30), I favor this one.
I don't like thick products that are hard to spread all over my face and this one isn't. It is thin and blends well and is easy to get your hole face covered to get adequate sun protection.
The tint is barely noticable once applied, but does give very minor color correction. Not as much as a tinted moisturizer would though. The color works for me and I'm fair.
I dont notice much of a smell with this product.
I was looking for a better rating on EWG Skin Deep's website, but for a mineral sunscreen that I like I suppose this will do.
There is one other product I did like when I tested in the store, but was too expensive to end up purchasing... Perricone MD Photo Plasma SPF 30. This felt so lightweight on my hand when I applied. If it weren't for the hefty price tag i would have liked to try it. There wasn't an EWG rating for it either, which concerned me.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love it, but not for me.
I really really wanted to like this product because I was looking for a new sunscreen to wear under my makeup. I read reviews saying that this does not leave a white cast, and also that it is mineral. It doesn't make it white, it does have a slight tint--kind of like the sheerest tinted moisturizer you could wear. That's fine, because I wear foundation over it. The smell is unpleasant, but I'm also sensitive to fragrances. It's very liquid-y, not thick at all and goes on well and sinks in. It's definitely NOT a matte finish on my combo skin. Weird smell aside, this just isn't working for me because I find it's really irritating to my sensitive skin--it stings whenever I apply it. I would recommend this to someone who doesn't have sensitive skin and doesn't mind products with strange smells.

I can't say anything for how it works/affect the skin but it smells so bad. Not sure if I got a bad one or what but I'm definitely returning this.
Very light and no scent

Idk how some people gave this one star: I am a pro makeup artist, esthetician and cosmetologist. I have used many tinted sunscreens but this is by far the best. It's light, thin but covers nicely. I use this a little powder, blush and mascara and I'm got to go. Beautiful protected skin! I suppose the people that hated it are likely allergic to something in it. Works amazing for me!!!
MLara from Colombia
I have been using this product for years and am very happy with it. It is very light, protects you from the sun and gives you a perfect and natural glow. I have tried other sunscreens but have found no other like this one. I agree that it has a particular smell but I do not think it is annoying at all.
Magg from California
Great sunscreen, put it on just add some blush and mascara and I'm good to go .. and all day looks like I'm wearing makeup. Makes my skin glow ! Definitely I'm buying again
Fast absorbing. Beautiful texture
Momlyfe from Michigan
Absorbs so quickly and leaves a wonderful matte finish. Doesn't sting or burn eyes either. I love the tint because I can put this on and a little concealer and be done with my skin for the day. The only reason I went down a star was the smell isn't great but I prefer that over fragrance.
Great Sunscreen - Tint is perfect!
Maria S. from Lowell, MA
I have used this everyday for several years now. The tint is perfect for my fair but slightly olive tone skin. I've taken very good care of my 50+ year old skin so this is all I need for everyday wear with a little powder and blush or bronzer. Highly recommend!
Cellogirl from New York
Light, not oily, just a tiny bit of tint and it does the job. Does not make my face break out!!!
Okay at best
Rvf from OC
The coverage is like a CC cream and it has a natural finish. It's super easy to blend out with fingers, but I noticed it breaks me out. I would only recommend it if you're not acne prone and have normal skin.
Great feel and color.
MercyG from undisclosed
My dermatologist recommended it and I love it. Since I started using it I stopped using face makeup. The sunscreen is creamy and the tint perfect.
Not a fan
Al from Michigan
I bought this a little while ago and the texture is fine it did make me breakout within a day. I thought I would give it another try recently but had similar results and quickly developed new breakouts. Maybe not the best for sensitive acne prone skin.
Ahndreya from New York, NY
Perfect! Super light in texture and not oily. The ideal sunscreen.

This product is great for sensitive skin and is not greasy. It works well on the face too.
This is a fabulous
raleigharaujobeauty from undisclosed
This is a fabulous sun screen that blends into your skin extremely quickly. It doesn't leave any white cast whatsoever and it doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. I have sensitive skin and it doesn't bother me at all.
I found this sunscreen
courtneye57 from undisclosed
I found this sunscreen to be thicker and greasier than I would have liked. While it was clearly effective at protecting me from sun and burns, I did not really enjoy the aspect of feeling a layer of stickiness all over my body throughout the day. Especially since you wear it more often outside in the heat when the sun is powerful so you sweat into the sunscreen and get even sticker.
Krut from Claysville
Used once and have it to someone else. I didn't like how it made my skin feel. My skin felt irritated and burning.
Meky from Palm beach
I've used this a few times despite not liking it because it doesn't seem to fully blend in your skin, but just today gave me this burning feeling like never before.
I have acne prone skin
Katie G. from Minnesota
This goes on just wonderfully. I like that it is tinted because then I use it as more of a bb cream on days I don't want to wear makeup.
Needed a face sunscreen
Hope K from Kansas City
So far so good! I've been using it for a couple weeks now and am very pleased with it.
kim from dallas tx
I have no idea now I missed the reviews about the scent... smells like the inside of a mechanic shop/gasoline So icky to have that scent on your face!!!!
I love this sunscreen!
Nicoliva from Chicago, IL
this sunscreen is perfect. Doesnt leave a purple film like most mineral sunscreens. love the design, the texture, and the benefits are simply perfect. antioxidant benefits pack a huge punch with this sunscreen. I love this so much.
Spherus from New York, NY
This is one of my favorite La Roche Posay products. I have pale skin so it's wise for me to wear sunscreen daily regardless of the weather. The fact that the product is tinted is what makes all the difference. My skin gets a little color and doesn't look shiny. I love it!
Elisa2 from undisclosed
I love the texture and the tinting is very light and nice on the skin.
The texture of this
sgokay from undisclosed
The texture of this is quite dry going on but other than that I really like this sunscreen. I personally only use mineral Spf because chemical always burns and stings my eyes and this of course doesn't bother mine at all. I'm very fair so I personally don't notice a white cast but if you're darker i could see it making you look very ashy, so id keep that in mind if you haven't tried this out yet. Overall I do enjoy it but if I'm especially dry I'll go for a more hydrating formula.
