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.

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.

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
Seems to be ok
J from Chicago, IL
The brush for this is low quality, but I guess it does the job okay.
Lump from Kansas City, MO
This SPF mineral powder is alright! I don't hate it, it works just fine for me, but the color is slightly off. I have to make sure I apply this evenly across my face, and not too much, otherwise I look a little orange. I also feel like this would not be a great product for anyone with darker skin unfortunately.. It's an okay product, but I probably wouldn't recommend it.
Love the product, hate the package
Farina from The Woodlands, TX
The product is great, but the dispenser DOES NOT work. I had to unscrew the bottom part and transfer the product to an empty container.
Great product, dispenser not - but here's a hack
Valerie from Undisclosed
This is a really good product. My skin is uber-oily so no matter how "non-oily" sunscreens say they are, they make me super shiny and oily all day. So a powder mineral sunscreen like this is a lifesaver. Now I can protect my fair skin without looking like an oil slick all day.
The powder feels silky, I love the skin-loving ingredients, and my skin feels smooth and soft (instead of oily) all day. It has just enough color in it to even out my skin tone a little and make me look a little less like a vampire (my natural state).
The dispenser, on the other hand, is a pain - as all of these self-brush dispensers are (inot just DermaE's). BUT I discovered there's an easy way to fix this one. Just unscrew the little pot at the end of the dispenser where the powder is. It comes right off!
Make sure you're holding it with the pot end down so you don't accidentally dump out the powder and unscrew. Then you can tap a little bit of the powder into a plate or dish and use your own makeup brushes to apply. Makes it MUCH easier to control how much you're using and apply evenly using higher quality brushes that don't just disperse all the powder into the air like the self-brush does.
This hack has saved this product for me. I was about to start looking for a replacement but discovering I can remove the little pot at the end and use it like a regular powder makes this a keeper for me. Hooray!

Convenient touch up!
Vanessa from Undisclosed
I like having this in my bag for any re application while out if i feel like i am getting too much sun it blends in easily as well
Milagros from Undisclosed
I have only used it for 1 week. I still see no difference
Deanna from Undisclosed
My 25 y/o dalighter loves this product. She has used another brand that's quite pricey, I found this product and it really compares in results, sun protection and good natural looking coverage.
Best SPF Mineral Powder Out There
Jennifer from Undisclosed
This is my favorite powder. After my morning routine, I sweep this on and it provides just the right amount of matte and tones down my redness. It's very natural-looking too. I no longer have to use powder foundation.
Not for me
VERONICA from Undisclosed
I wasn't too happy how it blend with my skin.
Great for thinning hari.
IrishEyes from Pocatello, ID
I use this on my scalp because my hair is so thin that I always sunburn my scalp. It is amazing. The sunscreen works great and the powder works as a lifting agent for my hair. No more sunburned scalp and no more greasy sunscreen because this is a powder. This is my super power for summer survival.
Love the SPF!
Krista from Undisclosed
This product is okay. I mostly like it. I'm not sure I love the container and brush combo. I don't feel like I have as much control of how much product is going on my skin. Overall, I like it and I'm happy with it.
Best beauty buy of 2020
Olivia from Undisclosed
I use this product on top of the sun kissed alba oil, vitamin c serum & moisturizer to mattefy and give light coverage as well as to give added sun protection. This is the best beautify product I've bought in 2020
Erin from Wisconsin
I was really excited to try this product; however I feel extremely disappointed after attempting to use it. First off, it is a far cry from the color pictured; it's bright orange- which makes since considering it contains iron oxide- which is a natural mineral dye that yields red- orange results. I don't want to look like an oompah loompa every time I leave me house so it's going back to ULTA. I feel very disappointed!
Great Product! Just One Thing...
Kate from Levittown, PA
I really love the idea of this product. It is a great way to reapply sunscreen throughout the day easily and over makeup. The only problem I have with it is the application. It is hard to know how much is coming out and actually getting onto my face. I wish it just functioned like a normal compact of powder and I could use my own brush.
Love results, effective and affordable
Claudia from Undisclosed
Great results for under eye brightness and vitamin C infusion and more affordable than other brands
