I was so excited to see this brand hit Ulta, I had been wanting to try it!
It's a chemical sunscreen so it's cast free (I have light, neutral toned skin, but I flash tested it!), it's definitely moisturizing and gives a gorgeous glow to the skin, but if that's not your vibe I put a super light coat of a finishing powder over it and it was more of a skin like finish!
I wanted to replace my purito after finding out it had insufficient filters and I feel like I found it with this! This has more glow than purito, but matches its finish with a dusting of powder.
I have not tested it long enough to know if it will break me out, I'm really really hoping it won't because it will absolutely be a holy grail product for me if it doesn't.
I was so excited to get this sunscreen after it's initial launch resulted in sell-outs. Unfortunately it's label as a "hydrating" sunscreen is really on point. I have acne-prone, dry, sensitive skin, and this sunscreen irritated my skin a ton. I actually turned more red wearing it. It doesn't soak into my skin, but instead leaves a slick film on top, so it's not a good primer for makeup. If I touched my face, I felt like I could feel the sunscreen.
However, I am a pale, White person, and this sunscreen was not designed with my skin type in mind! If you have really dry skin types or more melanin, then this sunscreen is definitely worth a shot. It leaves absolutely no white cast and dries clear.

I love that this sunscreen leaves no white cast which has been a constant struggle to find. However this sunscreen makes me instantly look like a grease ball. Even after applying a finishing powder, it still comes through and I'm having to dab my face throughout the day. I don't wear much makeup so I have no idea how it would react but I would be a little skeptical of doing so. Overall, it's a decent sunscreen but I wish it wouldn't leave me so greasy.

love this sunscreen. leaves a dewy finish, which i love. i use the recommended amount to get the spf protection stated on the bottle; which is a 1/4 teaspoon for face and neck and i put a bit more around my ears back of neck and back of hands. this is the important part of my a.m. skincare routine. if you just dot around your face or put less than recommended, then all that effort you put in your skincare routine is pointless. Sunscreen is the best anti aging product.

It's true this has absolutely no white cast!! Only reason I removed a star is because it's very shiny. I wear it every day with translucent powder and it's amazing! It feels light and not greasy and it's hydrating so I've never had a breakout from this :)

this is one of my favorite sunscreens and it's the only one that doesn't sting my eyes. it's perfect for under my makeup and gives me a glow. i have oily skin so i plan to purchase the matte version as well!

Spread easily, no pilling, no white cast
Bea from NYC
I know sun block is important for protection against skin cancer but I hated using it because as a POC, I hated the white film that it left behind that made me look like a ghost! A little goes a long way and now I get excited to put it on!
C.Berry from Charlotte,NC
When my skin is super dry, I love using it. Any other time, it leaves my skin oily and shiny but it's a quick fix with some translucent powder (if you use it on your face)
Amy from Michigan
I really like this sunscreen. It comes on white but it settles into your skin really well. It doesn't even make me look pale like other sunscreens. I do have one complaint. It makes me look greasy. Other than that the sunscreen is really good.

Looking for my Krave Beauty Beet Shield replacement :( this is the best one I've found, but I agree with other reviewers that it's really best for those with moderate to severe dry skin because it does feel a bit greasy. I have moderately dry skin and when I pair with my already heavy moisturizer, this sunscreen is just a little too much on top of that. Still, it's the best alternative I've found so far. I hope Ulta will carry their Kids Sunscreen as it is SPF 50 and it's a bit cheaper than this one.
Genesis from Maine
I was really excited to try this product. However, I started breaking out a few days after using it. Then, I thought maybe it was just me so I let my mom use it, and mind you she NEVER breaks out and has the smoothest skin I know. Well, she also had a breakout as a result of it. So she stopped after just 2 days of using it. This product is definitely not for everyone. If you have sensitive skin, I would be careful about using it.

I got this sunscreen about a month ago and I do like it but it's to greasy for me I would probably repurchase this until winter

So I've tried many sunscreens before. A lot of Korean ones but as you guys may know there's been a lot of scandals about them because they're not on par with the SPF. I have dry skin so I tried this sunscreen. Let me tell you guys....it's very glowy. It's definitely not for oily or normal skin. It's for VERY VERY VERY dry skin. I have dry skin and even this was too much for me. My friends and family thought I constantly looked sweaty with this on lol. But I do trust the SPF on this.
Gigi from Philadelphia, PA
I really wanted to love this sunscreen because the size/price/SPF level were exactly what I'm looking for. However, every time I wore it everyone would comment on how oily I looked and because I'm naturally oily, it also started breaking me out. I stopped using it after 3 weeks and now waiting for my skin to calm down. Bummed for sure.
Lauren from California
This sunscreen does NOT leave a white cast at all. It glides on seamlessly and I've never tried a sunscreen this amazing. The only down side is that it does leave your face a bit oily but if you add a powder with SPF on top of it, it turns out perfectly.
Mel from IL
This sunscreen is so hydrating and leaves NO white cast!! Makes my skin look dewy and plump. 10/10

I am a brown girl and this sunscreen Is ON POINT! no white dullness, ladies. And, as for the ocean, I do not swim in the ocean. This is a keeper!!!
Shaina from Boston
This is the perfect sunscreen for my dry skin people! Very moisturizing and it's a good sized bottle. Not greasy at all unless you have oily skin then I would not recommend. I only wish it was spf 50 but other than that it's perfect!
Danielle from Chicago
Leaves my skin sticky but not feeling hydrated.. it's very thick and definitely leaves my face shiny which I don't mind but I don't like the over all feel
God bless you from New York
I got this because I saw recommended on YouTube video, and I really did not care about looking up the ingredients because it was recommended by a dermatologist. I have been using this for over a month and I suddenly decided to look up an ingredients after looking at some reviews. Guys these main ingredients they're not good for your body and they're not good for the ocean. Please do your research before you buy this.
Kennedy from Charlotte
Got this as a gift. I used to not incorporate sunscreen in my skincare routine but now I do since I got this and it's been working great for me so far. I have dry skin and but having too much oil from a product will break me out so it's great that this sunscreen isn't oily and doesn't break me out. It also doesn't leave a white cast or anything it really just feels like you're putting on another moisturizer.
Ash from Canyon Lands
I'm really not sure why this product is marketed as having no white cast...it's a chemical sunscreen. I have tried dozens of chemical sunscreens and have never had any leave white residue/cast on my skin. Physical sunscreens, however, will definitely leave a white cast unless it is formulated without. I purchased this product because I thought it was a mineral sunscreen based on the description (which was my fault, I did not pay attention to the ingredients). It's a decent chemical sunscreen, but there are cheaper and better options out there.

I really wanted to like this because it seems like everyone loves it but it felt so heavy and greasy and never dried down it just stayed so greasy
