Most Helpful Positive Review Better than Coola and SuperGoop
I have super pale, sensitive skin and I use prescription trentinoin which makes my skin even more susceptible to sunburn/damage. Last year I discovered the Coola and Supergoop setting sprays with spf and loved them. I used them daily over my makeup and even on makeup free days as my sun protection. I took them to the beach and they prevented sunburn completely. I love this setting spray even more than those two because it has a better fine mist. The formula and scent reminds me of the Supergoop one which I love but I was not crazy about the Supergoop mister. Use common sense and close your eyes and hold your breath while using these products and they work great. This is really the only way you can apply sunscreen the recommended every two hours without disrupting makeup.
Most Helpful Critical Review It burns
This is the worst setting spray I've ever use. I had my makeup fully done except for the setting spray. I use this and the sprayer does not mist my face, it doused me with burning liquid beads. When I regained my sight, I noticed that my makeup has completely separated. It's so bad and stuck to my skin a makeup remover wipe wouldn't remove it. I had to use a face scrub. It's been about 30 minutes and my eyes STILL burn. Definitely returning

Sara from West USA
I hate the smell and it only burned on some skin the was semi rashy obviously but didn't burn otherwise. This is definitely a product I'd use going to an outdoor event or something with a light amount of makeup. Does leaves semi greasy finish after a bit too. It's okay but I wouldn't buy it again.
I hated this
Oliviajl from Missouri
I had such high hopes for this product, but it smelled bad, the sprayer sucked, and it left dots all over my freshly makeuped face. I wouldn't mind it for the body. Just not face
Worst spray ever
Prasha from Cerritos, CA
Had to return the product. The smell was so weird.. it was minty and made my head hurt from how strong the scent was. Whoever thought to add spearmint scent to a rose water facial spray .. I have no words. Sprayed everywhere even though I was careful to angle it to only spray my face so it ended up staining two of my favorite shirts (white marks all over front collars). RETURNED
Greasy & it burns
T from CA
I put this on after I did some light makeup and it burned my skin and also left a very greasy look which I hated. It also does not smell great.
Just... absolutely trash
Alanis from Michigan
I just wanted to use this as a sunscreen UNDER my makeup, thinning that the spray application would be easier than a cream... Mistakes were made. First off the bottle came compromised in some way, the top won't seal or something so it really leaks badly and it is SO greasy and sticky that it's impossible to wash off of the bottle or the drawer it leaked in. When you spray it on it comes out in HUGE droplets, so when I tried to use it as a "setting spray" it left big circles in my foundation, took off chunks of my eyebrows...disaster. It burns and left a yellow cast on my skin for some reason. It doesn't smell like roses, it smells like acidic sunscreen. I then tried to just dip my fingers in the bottle and spread it in as a base layer of sunscreen, but my foundation would NOT blend and all of my makeup pilled, even my brows gel. The price is enticing but I promise it's not worth it. Very disappointed that I had to throw away the entire bottle.
Don't buy this
Abkat from Tennessee
The sprayer broke upon the first few uses. Also hands down the worst smell I've ever put on my face. Made my face look greasy. Neat concept but wasn't executed well
I can't believe how bad this is
B from NJ
This is NOT matte. It is OILY, like literally spraying oil sheen on your face. I couldn't get past that so I had to return.
Worth it for the sunscreen
Yogimama from Texas
This is not about the makeup setting part. In fact I went to order more and just noticed that it's for makeup setting too. Honestly the convenience of having a full face of make up or none at all and just being able to spritz the sunscreen on rather than having to slather on lotion makes it super convenient and worth the smell. It doesn't smell great that's true. But the smell doesn't last long.
Stings and has strange smell
Amy from Seattle
I will go back and try another ulta setting spray marketed more for makeup application rather than as a sunscreen first.
Leaves your face GREASY
Pam from Chicago
This product has alcohol in it. If you have sensitive skin, DO NOT use it! If you have oily skin, sis, look the OTHER WAY. This sunscreen made my face so greasy!
Cherry from GA
Like the smell of gasoline all over your face? This is the product for you. Wish I could rate it zero.
Awful!! Might as well slather my face in banana boat
Honeycreep from WA
Heavy and oily, smells like some old school tanning oil. And burns my eyes when it gets too close to them.
Sammi from North Carolina
I really wanted to love this product because the price was excellent and it seemed like a great way to touch up on my sunscreen throughout the day. Unfortunately when I used it, it left this burning on my face and it was such a strong overpowering smell that made my head hurt. I don't consider myself to have sensitive skin or be really bothered by smells, but this was awful.
The pump did clog, but I added a few drops of water.
Amanda from TN
I use this multiple times a day, as I don't like to use sunscreen under mu makeup. It did clog badly when I first bought, but I added a few drops of water and cleaned the pump and now it is fine. It seems to protect well.
Didnt believe reviews
Brittany from Chicago
Sprayer clogged after using it like 5 times. Not sure if it works because I didn't burn but didn't test it out on really sunny days. Good idea but bad execution
Jordann from IN
Loved this the first few times I used it but the pump sticks. After awhile I could only get it to spray once before sticking and not working anymore.
Great price. Does the job
Cin from San Mateo, CA
Great product for the price. Works well for what it's supposed to do. Wish the smell was better but I can live with it. Wish the mist was finer.
Not worth it
Ali from Richmond, VA
This pump is TERRIBLE! Seems like a minor thing but trust, it's not. It's constantly getting stuck, so it makes the application splotchy (droplets on the foundation). On multiple occasions the pump even got stuck without me realizing and leaked all over my bag. The SPF works, yes, but it's so dewy/shiny, it's basically just spray sunscreen with a worse pump and smaller bottle.
Good for the price
Emma from Arizona
Worked pretty well
deepher from OFallon, MO
i use this when i want to wear a light amount of makeup for an outdoor event. one of my best makeup purchases yet!
The bottle doesn't spray that well
Kenn from Fenton MI
This product works great if you can get it to spray. It is not oily and works well doesn't clog pores either.
Sunset from New Jersey
This product worked pretty good but after a while it stopped working properly. It started to leave from the top and it wasn't spraying properly. The smell is also a little strong.
I sprained my wrist (not joking) using this
Hannah Z from Cincinnati, OH
Okay so overall, it's actually not bad. It does set, the SPF is high, and it's very light on your skin, non-greasy, but the bottle design is incredibly poor; seriously whoever manufactured this bottle needs to be fired, and it should be recalled. The nozzle doesn't bounce back up for you to spray it again, you have to force it to pop-up. In having to turn my wrist to, quite literally, FORCE it to spray onto my face, I sprained my wrist. I ended up transferring it to a different bottle, and I love it. So I would genuinely buy this again, but it should be cheaper since we have to buy a new bottle to be able to use it.
I love it, except it quits spraying after a few uses
Eastcoastncgal from Wilmington, NC
I actually really like the product because it's so easy to reapply. No strong perfume scent, lightweight, dries quickly, and didn't burn my skin. Super bummed the pump quit working so fast! I'll try 1 more time because the product itself is good!
Gandyu from Minnesota
Smells terrible, like so bad I simply threw it in the trash.
