Most Helpful Positive Review This product is AMAZING
I love this product! I use it everyday instead of a lotion spf and it's so easy to apply and doesn't mess up my makeup! I don't have to worry about getting sunburned anymore because I just keep applying this throughout the day and it products my skin and also helps my skin stay smooth looking and not greasy. It has helped make the lines in my forehead less noticeable too after applied!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not my idea of "translucent"
I don't usually wear make-up unless I'm going somewhere special. Recently though, my goal has been to take better care of my skin, especially in the sun. I found a great SPF face lotion that I really like but I wanted a translucent powder to go over it so that my skin would look matte and not shiny all day. I wanted one with SPF as well since you are supposed to re-apply throughout the day and really, who does that over the course of a normal day with a lotion? When I saw this product I was excited. It sounded perfect, was at the right price point and seemed to have all the features I was looking for. I will say that it does keep my skin matte all day, it evens out my skin tone, and I feel as though it provides extra protection from the sun. I also like that it's super easy to throw in my purse and re-apply as needed throughout the day. That being said, this powder is NOT my idea of translucent. IMO, a "translucent" powder should not deposit color on your skin. There is a definite color to it and it is bordering on being too way too dark for my skin tone. It leaves a bit of an orange look. It definitely looks like I'm wearing foundation which isn't really the look I was going for. If you have super light skin, or even a very dark skin tone for that matter, this powder probably won't work for you. On my attached pic you can see the amount of color that comes off of my face on a tissue from this. It's definitely a "medium" color. If your skin is very fair like mine, you're going to see color on your jawline or a difference in shades between your face and your neck/chest. I'm going to keep it and continue to use it because other than the color issue this meets all of my needs. Once I run out however, I will probably search for another powder that doesn't have so much color. I wish they'd release this product in product in a true "translucent" (AKA white or clear) powder or at the very least have a few shades- one lighter than this and maybe a few darker.

Very nice spf powder but dispenser could be better
Not Black girl friendly
Honest Review From a Black Girl from Charlotte
Nice product, good price point, but this not Black girl friendly! Had me looking real ghostly smh. So glad I bought it with enough time to test out before my event. I recommend to all my fair/light friends, but if you have melanin its a no.
I'll buy it again
Nicole from Undisclosed
I like it. I saw other reviews complaining that they had issues getting the powder out, but I do not have this issue.
Great every powder
Sharon from Undisclosed
Great daily powder that provides sun protection
I would definitely buy this product again.
Joan from Undisclosed
I like this sunscreen for my face. Easy to apply n not greasy like some can be.
Bella from St. Louis
Nice for a brush/powder combo for the purse. Applies well for daily re-apply during the day. I'd prefer a better smell. Smell is kind of stale. Other than the smell, all else is great.
Beautiful and simple!
Pickyshopper from Stafford, VA
This powder is a must for an additional sun protection! I was looking for ways to reapply my sunscreen without disturbing all makeup and this powder certainly passed the test. It's almost invisible on my face, has a nice coverage and texture, matte finish, which gives me beautiful tint and glow without making my face a mask. Love it!
Carey from Undisclosed
Quick & easy way to reapply sunscreen during the day. Nice soft feel to the powder. 👍🏼
This stuff is awesome
Mandy from Illinois
This stuff does not make me break out, gives sun protection, and makes the greasy parts of my face matte. I would never apply SPF on cloudy days or when im not outdoors much, and this makes me able to wear spf without really applying a major sunscreen. I do not wear other make up - so this is perfect.
Norma from Undisclosed
So great for retouching spf over makeup!!!! And the brush is good - the hairs don't fall out constantly like the Mineral Fusion one. It's also not $65 like the Colorscience one! Great value, great product.
hard to use, definitely oxidizes
Dan from LV
I bought this because liquid spf breaks me out, drys me out to the point it hurts and makes my eyes water all day (chemical and mineral)! I thought I would try a powder spf. It's hard to use because the way it's made is so that powder comes out from the brush. I have to hit the brush down so that the powder comes down, but then I get too much out. I just wish I could dip it myself and use it. maybe in a khabuki brush form because this one is too long! The brush sheds and its length makes it so that the powder flies everywhere but your face, or so it seems because I cant see it on my face but I can see it on my clothes, hair, and counter. It's a nude transulcent color so I cant tell if I am protecting my skin enough....until it oxidizes 30 minutes later and I turn orange. I can tell I dont have enough protection if I haven't turned orange. lol. I am medium tan with black hair (that's why I can see it in my hair) and the oxidation doesnt bother me too much since it looks like i put foundation on due to my tan skin, but it might bother others. (I never wear make up) I also have combination skin so I cant use this on dryer skin days because the powder just shows more flakiness than I would like. I cant tell of it protects me from the sun because I'm scared to use it for long sun days since it's hard to see if I have enough on. Lastly, it does make me break out a little but much less than the liquid form. It does make my eyes water, unfortunately. It doesn't dry me out though like the liquid form! Basically, it isnt Mr. Right. Still on the hunt for an SPF.
Amy from Florida
Surprisingly great coverage with sunscreen!
Miriam from Undisclosed
I found it difficult to apply. I would shake and apply to my face and was difficult to see how much powder I put on my face.
Find a better formula to fixed the white cast
Sumayo from Undisclosed
Kinda of ok but the powder doesn't stay on skin and looks flaky and white cast.
Works i guess
Shannoel from Elkhart, IN
I don't know how well it works as a sunscreen, but I use it when I forget to put on foundation to even out my red, blotchy skin tone. No smell. It does come out a bit fast, so be careful. Doesn't break my skin out so far.
Sandra from Riverton, Utah
Overall I think it's fine. I do press down hard on the brush during the application process because I feel like their is not enough product that comes out and I feel like my face is not getting enough coverage. Other than that it's okay it does give me a semi matte finish.
I would buy again.
Buffalo from Buffalo, NY
Did a good job of protecting my face skin from the sun and not caking. However, I thought it was a bit too expensive for the small amount of powder we get!
This powder oxidized
Sue from Hazleton, PA
I was in Ulta and looking for an SPF finishing powder to replace my empty Invincible Setting Powder by Supergoop. I found this one from Derma-E and thought I'd give it a go. No good. This powder is a lot darker than shown on the website. It's pretty orange in the container. When I first applied, it looked okay, but within a few minutes it oxidized to an Oompa Loompa orange. Terrible. I'll be sticking with Supergoop.
It works for me
GraceA from Florida
I like this powder. I bought it for reapplying SPF throughout the day and I love the idea of carrying the product with me. But I don't think the brush and the dispenser work well since I can't tell if the powder settles on my skin at all. And a lot of product flies everywhere when reapplying. I ended up pour the powder to another empty container like regular setting powder. That said, I now only use it in the morning before I leave the house.
Because of my skepticism about the usefulness of the packaging, I don't think I will repurchase the product even though it works really well for me. At this price point, I can easily find a compact with SPF which definitely will last me for longer time. There is nothing wrong with the product- the color is a great match to my Asian skin tone, not too drying, no irritation so far. It was the convenience of packaging convinced me to try this product but the application doesn't do too well a job. So I took a star away, and as I have stated, I probably will not repurchase this again.
Dawn from OKC
I was under the impression this was supposed to be colorless/translucent but it def has a tint to it that doesn't look great on my skin. I also find this to be pretty drying on my skin.
FD from California
Getting the cap back on while trying to get all the bristles together to make sure they're secure in the cap is frustrating. When I apply the product I do not feel like the product is actually getting on my face so just from not being sure about that I would not repurchase.
Long lasting and easy to carry
Rebecca from Undisclosed
I tossed one of these in my purse for easy access to quick re-application as needed. Doesn't irritate eyes. Entire ear is easily covered. This product really works!!
Hot Summer Day Protection
Elva from Undisclosed
I use the extra sun protection on top of my make-up while I am out. It's easy to carry and apply and works great.
Hard to tell if it works, nice design
Blair from NC
I'm not sure how I feel about this product. I wear it over sunscreen for light coverage or later in the day when I assume my morning sunscreen has worn off. It is a bit messy when I use it, in that the powder is spread in the air and such when you use it. I am fair-skinned and the color is maybe a bit too dark for me.
Not sure I would.
Debra from Undisclosed
The non color is great. The not so great is getting the powder to the brush
