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.

Beat sunscreen for the
joflyyy from undisclosed
Beat sunscreen for the face. The tint is amazing and you can go out without any foundation on. It is creamy and light. It also lasts a good amount of time. I switch between different ones so not sure how long one bottle will last with every day use. But this is beautiful texture
Loved the product, just too dark!
Julia from Ulta
I absolutely loved this product, the application was nice and easy, it went on smooth, didn't pill, and layered nicely over other products. But as soon as I put it on, I realized that my face was a different color than my neck. Amazing product, just too dark for people who are on the pale side!
Meh, I prefer the non mineral version
Monica L from Miami, FL
I'm extremely fair, and this SPF still leaves a white cast on my skin. I like and enjoy the feeling of it, it doesn't sting my eyes or sensitive skin, but I only wear it when I don't mind having a cast!
Worth the money
C Harms from Chicago
Light, blends easily, effective. My favorite daytime mineral sunscreen. Worth the money.
Not for me
Shay76 from undisclosed
I honestly thought I would love this sunscreen! But today was the second day putting it on and it just flaked and made my dry skin really stick out, which happened the first time and I just thought I was having a bad skin day at first... But it was definitely the sunscreen, because my face looks great before I put it on.
My favorite sunscreen so far
An K from undisclosed
This sunscreen together with the Effaclar Cream Cleanser have significantly improved my experience. I used to tap my excess oil every two hours before, and I could notice my large pores. Since started using these products, my face becomes brighter, smoother, and less oily. I have just purchased the 2nd bottle and introduced it to my sister as well.
Too dark shade
An K from undisclosed
The actual shade is way darker than advertised picture. I think the texture is fine, but I can't use it. This sunscreen just makes my face look funny - like I have used too much tan spray on my face.
I have super ivory
cassidyr33 from undisclosed
I have super ivory skin and my face burns no matter how much sun screen i apply!! But this stuff!!! It is so light and doesn't feel greasy and it is light coverage so it's like throwing a little tint on your face for the day at the beach! you will not get burnt with this stuff!
Great save by a tiny bottle!!
LisaE from Chandler, AZ
At the beach this weekend, I left my spray in the condo. Too lazy to walk back, I used a bit of this on legs, arms and face. No burn = big win!! Protected and healthy!!
KelK from NH
Fabulous product. Melts into your skin. Just enough tint.
Love it, but it's
emilyp390 from undisclosed
Love it, but it's too bad it comes in one color. I love the entire Antheoios line from la roche posay, I think it's awesome, Including their liquid sunscreens. They apply beautifully under makeup, don't leave a white cast, and don't irritate My skin. However this comes in one shade, and is too dark for my fair complexion and definitely won't work for those with deeper complexions either. It's a good product but I would love if they expanded the shade range!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

Glides on smoothly and makes my skin look wonderful.
My sister recommended it
babib2 from undisclosed
My sister recommended it to me. I been using it for quite a while now and it really protect my skin from the sun. I live that it's also tinted.
I love this sunscreen!
janeta42 from undisclosed
I love this sunscreen! It leaves a Matt touch to your skin and it doesn't leave a white cast. I love how it has uva and uvb protection. This is by far one of my favorite sunscreens.
I love this product!
laisbl from undisclosed
I love this product! my skin is really dry and this sunscreen fits really well in my face. I can feel the hydration seeping into my pores without getting heavy or making my skin oily.
I love the how
nicolinab2 from undisclosed
I love the how this is lightweight, feels like nothing on the skin but is hydrating. The only thing I will say is that it does leave a white cast, slightly. I would wear this under my mask or I'll wear it under makeup. This picture it's up close but it's this sunscreen under my makeup. It gives a Luminous glow.
Good but not alone
Hailey from Savannah
It's a great matte sunscreen. It has a nice liquid texture that dries down quick and doesn't make me breakout. But I can only wear this under makeup. Alone, it leaves a terrible white cast. I'm already fair skinned but this makes me look like a ghost.
Couldn't love it more
Mike's Wife from Indianapolis, IN
Easy to use. It spreads wonderfully and lasts all day. The tint is a perfect shade and covers thinly to give a fresh but unmade up look. However, it does come off on clothes similar to a foundation.
Randomjiggly from Nj
I noticed the label got redone. Is the formula the same as the old label?
Very thin and nice
allisonh14 from undisclosed
Very thin and nice for under makeup. Doesn't irritate my skin at all and has hylauronic acid to help keep my skin moisturized all day but not oily or greasy. My skin is dry but sometimes certain sunscreens can break up your makeup and separate into oils
Best tinted sunscreen
AngieL from Phoenix, AZ
Not greasy or oily. Blends perfectly while providing excellent coverage from the intense sun
L. Lee from San Diego, CA
Purchased this product for the ingredients.
Need to use Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide for proper skin protection from the sun.
