Most Helpful Positive Review This is actually pretty good...
It's good,definitely worth a try, will keep buying...I use this as my last step in my skin routine and i feel it's hydrating enough that I don't need a moisturizer, it sinks in my skin nicely. That's important to me cause I'm always in a hurry and I don't like a heavy feeling on my face. Been using this for a while now and no breakouts and it's fine for my sensitive skin. No white cast either which is a must for my medium complexion. I've tried Murad C spf/ Tula protect&glow/Dermedicine/Honua Malu/ Neutrogena/aveeno/First aid beauty/supergoop a few but I still like this one cause I feel it's comparable just doesn't come with the higher price tag. I just wish they put more oz, but I guess that common for face spf. So glad they're at Ulta gonna buy more of the line...
Most Helpful Critical Review Not bad for a chemical sunscreen
First of all, it's great that this product uses chemical UV filters that are reef-friendly. Cannot emphasize that enough. That being said, if you are acne-prone, this may not be for you. The texture is light and gel-like. Has a slightly oily/wet finish, but dries down matte-ish after the first application. (If you're the type to reapply sunscreen, the finish starts to get wetter.) It is does not contain fragrance, which I appreciate, but it does smell a lot like Coppertone. Every time I applied, it reminded me of a swimming pool. It's a very strong chemical scent, so again, I appreciate that they did not mask this scent with fragrance, which can be irritating for skin. In terms of practical application, this can be stinging to the eyes, but not initially. Since you're supposed to apply sunscreen every two hours, especially when outdoors, that's what I did. However, since it's summer and it's hot, I think it caused this product to "melt" or something, but it started to make my eyes sting and water a lot. (I can't imagine what torture my eyes would have gone through if I were splashing around at the beach. Saltwater + this sunscreen = ouch.) If the temperature is not so hot, I don't think you'll have this problem with reapplying. With regards to the name, I think it's misleading to call this a "Sunscreen Serum." A serum is meant to be applied under moisturizer and sunscreen. I don't think you can replace your serum with this product as it just doesn't offer the same benefits. However, if you have really oily skin, you could probably get away with skipping moisturizer and going straight to this. Overall, this is not bad, but it's not the best sunscreen out there. I will not be repurchasing.

I have tried SO many sunscreens but keep coming back to this one. It's hydrating and lightweight. It gives a nice glow without being sticky. I have oily/acne prone skin, and it doesn't cause me any breakouts. The scent isn't too overwhelming and fades quickly. It does have a tendency to pill, but the pros outweigh that for me!
Amazing face sunscreen
Noelle from San Diego, CA
I love this face sunscreen. It feels like a lotion, absorbs well, doesn't leave a cast, doesn't feel heavy. I use it almost every day and I really can't say anything bad about it except I with is came in spf 50 as well.
Nice but can pill
Meesh from Chicago
Texture is really nice, it's light and sinks right in, leaving a glowy finish without feeling heavy. It doesn't seem to pill on top of other products; however, it does pill on itself halfway thru the day when it's hot and humid. Will probably save to use for cooler days.
Sadie1 from Ohio
Not quite a holy grail but doesn't cause breakouts and leaves no white cast on me which is a hard combo to find in a spf. The serum formulation is a little tricky to work with. Has a tendency to pill if I layer it over a moisturizer, but it's hydrating enough to skip one if you have oily or combo skin.
Rory from undisclosed
No greasy feel or white cast, also doesn't make me breakout which is rare for sunscreen. Love that it's moisturizing too! Just wish the tubes were bigger :)

This sunscreen is everything its hyped up to be. Does not sting the eyes and gives a glowy finish.
First time trying & not disappointed
Louise from undisclosed
Goes on so flawlessly without any white cast, and is so easy to top up throughout the day
Michelle from undisclosed
I love the texture of this product and how easy it's absorbed and blended in to the skin and is not drying. I have sensitive and dry skin. I've been looking for a clean face sunscreen to replace an older product that's no longer available. Will definitely order again.
BEWARE Pills like Elmer Glue
Dee from California
Nope, will pill up and severely peel off like a mask. Do not buy.
So so smoooth
Cyd from undisclosed
I've been searching for perfect sunscreen and I've hit the jackpot with "Resting Beach Face"! It has no white cast and leaves my skin feeling smooth as heck!
Great! Love it
Catherine from undisclosed
Best sunscreen I've tried to date.
Perfect everyday SPF
Oriana from undisclosed
The texture is so smooth it goes on very easily and does not leave a white cast. It layers seamlessly with other skincare products and with makeup. Will definitely but again.
Amazing lightweight sunscreen!
Domina from undisclosed
This sunscreen is exactly what I was looking for! It is lightweight, leaves no cast (I have light, olive toned skin), and sinks in quickly. I have combo skin, that becomes dehydrated and oily very quickly. I have found this sunscreen to be hydrating enough that my skin feels healthy throughout the day, but my face isn't turning into an oil slick after a couple hours. It has not irritated my skin at all and I haven't experienced any pore clogging or breakouts after using it. It does have a slight sunscreeny smell, but I find it to be inoffensive and it fades pretty quickly after application. The packaging is also extremely convenient, as the pump dispenser makes it easy to get the right amount of product without making a mess. I was a big fan of the Krave Beet Shield and think this is a really great replacement! I will absolutely purchase again!
Meghan from undisclosed
This sunscreen is great - hydrating, no whitecast, and the minimal "sunscreen smell" goes away quickly after application. I'm really picky about sunscreens, especially ones for my face, and this is my new fave!
Julia from undisclosed
I love this sunscreen! There's no white cast and the smell of it reminds me of being on vacation. The sent has minty notes and a little of that traditional sunscreen smell (which I like). It also leaves my skin so dewy looking so if you have dry/normal/combo skin this is great. I ordered it to Canada and didn't get charged with duty so that was another plus. Overall I would totally recommend it.
Laura from undisclosed
I love the fact that in addition to truly rubbing in without a white cast, it has the added ingredients to make it feel like there‚Äôs an extra step of skin care in addition to sun protection!
Evie from undisclosed
I love the fact that it has hyaluronic acid , and super greens in it, it goes on and disappears leaving a healthy beautiful glow.
No White Cast!
Bee from undisclosed
Excellent sun protection. No white cast.
Seriously my fave sunscreen yet
Sarah PM from undisclosed
This stuff is amazing. It is sheer, absorbs into the skin well, and doesn't break me out! It's a joy to use and reapply. It does not have a strong scent but I really like the way it smells... light and refreshing. Overall I am stocking up on this product, love it and love what this company stands for!
A lightweight moisturizing sunscreen
Carmen from undisclosed
I have been looking for a lightweight sunscreen for my dry skin for a while and Resting Beach Face might be it! I love a fresh, almost dewy look, which is not always possible to achieve with sunscreens that dry my face so this sunscreen was a nice surprise. My face looks fresh but not oily and feels protected from the sun so I would recommend it!
Overall very nice, but it does pill
theKate from Texas
I originally got this as a sample size in a box o goodies that Ulta sent after I spent more money than I needed to...
I used it a few days after a light chemical peel when I was outside for about 6 hours and I was terrified it wouldn't be enough to protect my skin. I reapplied maybe a little more often than I needed, due to my slight paranoia, but on the third reapplication I did notice some pilling.
I can say that it does work though, because like a dodo bird, I totally forgot to apply any sunscreen to my chest, despite my v-neck shirt. The next day, my face looked fine! But my chest... was lightly sunburned. So it definitely does work, even with sensitive skin a few days after a light chemical peel (it was just an Ordinary one- not anything too intense). Plus, it felt nice on and my face felt hydrated.
I'm prone to breakouts, even with sensitive skin or Neutrogena sunscreen where it's not supposed to happen, but I did not experience any issues at all with this!
I even let my friend try it out when we were out that day, and she dug it too. She just ordered her own!
Sita from undisclosed
One of the only spf products that doesn't make me break out, no white cast.
Not greasy, feels light

Where have you been?!

Love this stuff, from the texture to the smell and lastly the price! Definitely will be a staple for me x
Love it! But..
Imogene from Australia
Overall I love this product. It's great for my sensitive skin, glides on like a lovely moisturizer/serum, doesn't give me that sweat mustache that so many sunscreens do! And it smells amazing. My only issue is having to wait a while for it to fully absorb before applying foundation over the top, as it moves with it and isn't effective if anything is applied over it too soon. It does ball/pill a bit after a couple of hours if I touch my skin. Lovely product overall and no stinging/burning/breakouts or extra sweatiness!
