Meh, I'll use it till it's gone.

By jmemoon

Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

The smell is mild, sort of like sunscreen but more earthy. It does dry very quickly and can leave a white cast over the skin. I just dab a little at a time until my face is covered, so I can rub it in well enough not to notice the cast. I'm very pale, so it sort of just brightens my skin, but I think it would be a lot more noticeable on a darker skin tone. It is hydrating, but I also notice the texture of my skin more after applying. I'm going to use it until it's gone and go back to Coola.

Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

I love the Pacifica coconut probiotic moisturizer so much! When I saw an spf with the same effects by Pacifica, I jumped to buy this product. There is DEFINITELY a white cast once applied and sets quickly. I have dry/sensitive skin with a medium/honey complexion and almost wanted to cry when I applied the product and saw the stark faint white/light grey cast. HOWEVER, once I applied my foundation (Mally powder foundation) all was right with the world! My makeup sits beautifully on top of this sunscreen and the benefits outweigh the white cast in my opinion.

White cast ruins what could be a good product

By Sar

from Spanish Fork, UT

Pros

  • Not Greasy
  • UVA/UVB Protection

Cons

  • Doesn't rub in well
  • White Cast

Best Uses

  • Under foundation

Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

I absolutely love many of Pacifica's products but THIS...this is such a weird and slightly terrible product. If it didn't have an astonishing white cast that turned my light neutral-yellow skin tone into a very VERY fair pink skin tone I would absolutely like it. The white cast is way worse than any mineral sunscreen I've used. I was able to throw a medium coverage foundation over it but it did lighten the foundation a tad. I would maybe like this if I wore foundation often, but I don't. It's also slightly gritty, but not too bad. I do like that it dries down very nicely and manageably fast and even though it's a teeny tiny bit heavy it dosen' t feel greasy at all. Honestly, other than the white cast, it would almost be my holy grail suncare for my face, neck and chest.

    Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

    Previously I was a routine purchaser of an Aveeno sunscreen that was mineral and had an SPF of 30, but after that seemingly disappeared from Ulta overnight, I had search for something else. I found this product after I had begun using more Pacifica products, and so far I've enjoyed it! It's a thin formula that spreads fairly well. It has a very faint tint to the formula (likely to help combat the white cast mineral sunscreens tend to leave) and smells like coconut! I know other people have mentioned that it does need to be worked in, but frankly that's just about all mineral sunscreens on the market (and a fair trade off in my book to avoid chemical UV absorbers). Any sort of makeup I've applied over this has applied wonderfully so long as you don't use any sort of excessive rubbing or buffing. Cost wise it's also very affordable (seeing as Ulta constantly has coupons available as well) and a fair price for protecting your skin!

    Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

    The bad reviews are correct regarding the terrible white cast. However, if you own a powder foundation that is 2 shades too dark for you- in my case, I pair this sunscreen with Laura Geller's Balance N Brighten in "FAIR"-- I apply the sunscreen, let it sit on the skin for 15 minutes then I apply the powder foundation with my large ELF kabuki brush by pressing the powder foundation into my skin. This works great for an outdoor concert, barbecues, by the pool, etc.as it provides great sun protection and the powder foundation seems to wear longer on top of this sunscreen. I also LOVE the fact that I can apply this around my eyes without any stinging or burning sensation. On the daily, I prefer to wear a tinted moisturizer like IT Cosmetics CC Cream but for the occasional outdoor gathering I will continue to use this sunscreen/ powder foundation combo through the spring/ summer.

    Good product but tricky to work with

    By Andie.V

    from California

    Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

    The liquid is very runny I recommend using light pressure rather than squeezing, & shaking before each use.
    It also dries quickly, I had to work the product in quickly. It does leave some white/grey streaks. It didn't effect the finish of my makeup because I waited for the sunscreen to dry before I applied primer and foundation. It is moisturizing, I like the results for my dry skin. I'm sure I can find another natural sunscreen that isn't as difficult to work with. I will only buy again if I can't find something easier to use that is natural and cruelty free

        Comments about Pacifica Sun + Skincare Mineral Face Shade Coconut Probiotic SPF 30:

        This is the worst sunscreen I've ever used. I use zinc sunscreens so I'm aware there can be a tendency for a white cast, but not to this extent. It doesn't spread over the skin well and it leaves a very noticeable white cast even on my already pale skin.

        Smelled really good, and was moisturizing. However it left a white cast, and became textured when applying makeup over top.
