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.

Purchased after reading that it was mineral spf with some tint. Description said it gives your skin a healthy glow. It does not give glow, dries matte. It also is very dark for lighter skins. It changed the color of my foundation and looked very dry. If you like dry matte finish, it's for you.
Great tinted sunscreen, non-ittitating.
Liana from Portland, Maine
Non-irritating, good color coverage for fair skin and goes on smooth. I gave only 4 stars because it leaves my skin pretty shiny and gathers in creases in my eyes. Does not cause break outs nor does it bother the skin around my eyes.
I really like it
Jan@ from miami
Great texture it doesn't smell and my sensitive skin love it, it gives you a nice look withouth the heaviness of a foundation, flawless and natural
My new forever sunscreen
ssnowickle from Gainesville, FL
to start this off, my skin is very oily after a few hours at the start of the day. i have tried so many sunscreens and this is the one. leaves my skin MATTE, i wore it all day and was only slightly oily on my nose and tzone but compared to other products ive tried I WAS SHOCKED. the tint helps to even out my skin on days where i dont feel like putting on alot of makeup.
Great for sensitive skin
Nay G from Riverside
I wear it and my eyes weren't crying all the time like it happens with another brands. I love it
Tinted mineral sunscreen

Living in FL and playing golf four days a week, this sunscreen is a must. I love the tinted mineral formula.
If I could marry

If I could marry a sunscreen it would be this one!!! So good didn't make me breakout also no white cast!! The texture is milky I guess and it doesn't have a smell
Nguyeners from Houston Texas
I was in search of a new sunscreen and this came across. I used the tinted mineral one so it does not leave a white cast. This sun screen is very light-weight and fits perfectly into my skincare routine! I would buy again and again.
Best for everyday use-tinted mineral spf 50
Jen17 from Fla
My Derm. gave me a sample. I was already using the untinted, but the tinted mineral is now my favorite everyday sunscreen. Feels silky, it's not shiny and gives good coverage. The tint evens out my skin tone and covers small spider vein near my nose. Love it..priced a bit high
spiffymari from California
Okay, I've gone thru many bottles of sunscreen and this one by far is my favoriteeee. I slept on it for so long but I finally picked it up one day and since then haven't looked back. It's very lightweight and leaves a nice matte finish (if you have really dry skin I would suggest you apply a very hydrating moisturizer beforehand). It also doesn't leave a noticeable white cast like many others are complaining that it does. And for reference, I have brown skin.
Great sunscreen protection

Loved how it looked
but by the end of the day it was very drying
for my skin
Looked like an unflattering mask
ShellyLuca from Los Angeles
I'm very sorry that this product did not work for me. The unnatural sheen produced when applied to my skin left me looking like a glazed doughnut. I tried the next day as well, hoping for a better result, but unfortunately the tallow, yet too-shiny look remained.
Pretty good sunscreen! Has
sadiqat from undisclosed
Pretty good sunscreen! Has a nice tint and it's mineral. It's light underneath makeup it doesn't make you look greasy even after moisturizer. There's no grey cast. The price point is a bit too high.
I wear this instead
memeyassi from undisclosed
I wear this instead of foundation. I don't mind the texture but some might find it thin. It's best to spread it in with your hands not a beauty blender.
YES YES YES!
Olivia from New York, NY
If you've been looking for a mineral sunscreen that doesn't leave a white cast and get chalky, this is IT! It's a serum so it's very thin/watery, and glides onto the skin like butter. I have combo skin. This is the best sunscreen ever!
This is my favorite
sophiaa93 from undisclosed
This is my favorite sunscreen ever. The color of the tint is absolutely perfect for my skin tone. I'm fair but somewhat tan. If you are very fair or medium to dark this won't work - I think that's really disappointing they didn't accommodate this for other skin tones and just one. Luckily this works for me but others of different complexion wanting to try it will be very disappointed.
Other than that it is amazing. A lot of people say the tint isn't enough coverage and that it wears off. I think some people don't understand that sunscreen needs to be applied very liberally to the face - and needs to be RE applied every 2 hours. Yes it rubs off but you must re apply your sunscreen throughout the day or it won't be effective. This is one of the very few sunscreens that doesn't sting my eyes and feels light weight, it's fragrance free and has great ingredients. I've been using it for years.
the BEST on the market

Silky smooth with a gorgeous glow. BUY THIS. You won't regret it.
My daily go-to face product
Keli from California
This product goes on sheer and lasts all day. I love the fact I can wear this on my face and get the lightweight coverage I need with sun protection all in one. I was in love after the first use. I was also surprised at how long the bottle lasted especially since I use it almost everyday.
Just buy it
EB888 from Los Angeles
Absolutely amazing. It feels nice on my face, not too sticky, shiny or doesnt dry the skin. The tint adds nice touch, and gives greater protection against visible light along with UV protection. Highly recommend it!
Loren from San Antonio TX
Great sunscreen to use as a base for compact powder. Love it
extremely white cast
Meg from Florida
This leaves an even more white cast than the 60 spf. I will stick with the 60 in an emergency and my Korean SPF otherwise. I will not purchase this anymore.
Favorite face sunscreen!! I
mariannypaolam from undisclosed
Favorite face sunscreen!! I highly recommend trying this product. It's tinted, but very natural. On those days where I feel like I don't want to wear any make up, this sunscreen does the job and makes my skin look smooth and beautiful. Best part: super thin and not sticky!!

Not great for fair skin

I wanted to live this but it's very dark on my fair skin. I end up looking almost orange.

Is lightweight, non greasy… Has good coverage & I use it as a foundation with the benefits of spf 50!
Too yellow for fair/pink skin
JB from Kansas City, MO
I liked the feel of this product on my skin, very smooth/silky and didn't hate the scent (and I'm pretty sensitive to scents), but the deal breaker was that it was far too yellow and dark on my fair skin that leans pink.
