I love the zinc sunscreens because the chemicals in most sunscreens are absorbed through the skin and they are not healthy. Zinc sunscreens are a much healthier alternative. However with most zinc sunscreens they will never rub in completely and you run around for a very long time looking like Caspar the Friendly Ghost. (sorry for those who are too young to know who that is). Take it from me, this is a bad thing. With this sunscreen you get the healthy zinc formula, but it actually rubs in just like any other sunscreen. I will probably never buy anything else from now on.
Product is much heavier even after applying a small amount. It leaves a white chalky film on body like using zinc oxide on your entire body. Kindly tell me how to get off the inside of my car. After applying in the morning to be outside all day, while driving, the product has stained several spots from rubbing off my skin. I have tried mild soap and water. I need recommendations from your company because it won't come off the upholstery.

Has a white cast that just doesnt rub in. Not worth the hassle

Listen, I'm pale. I am not a tan person. But the whitecast that this product leaves is not worth any "moisturizing" benefits that it may have. The whitecast from the minerals in it is on everything. I put on black pants after applying it and it looks like I smeared deoderant on them. It's even on the straps of my bag. Just get a different sunscreen.

Does not absorb into my skin. Makes my face look very greasy

I'm a huge CeraVe ￼fanatic since I have very sensitive and dry skin. I've used many tinted sunscreens - majority leave dry flaky patches on my face. I was hesitant to buy another tinted sunscreen for that reason but I'm so glad I came across this one. Makes my skin look refreshed and glowy and blends right into my skin. Can use it as a makeup base or even by itself for a "no-makeup" makeup look. The two reasons I'm giving this product 4 stars is because 1) wish it came in more shades (not suitable for darker skin tones) and 2) the bottle it comes in gets very messy over time. But overall, love this product and will be repurchasing!

I mistakenly only brought this to a wedding. Im very fair but it was so white and sticks on everything. Left a terrible residue. Will transfer onto your clothes. It felt like you could rub it in for hours and it still wouldn't be any better.

I'm dark skin and I was new to the skincare industry and this was my first sunscreen, at first I thought I was normal to live your face white, but them I realized that this product is not made for people of color
Beth from Fairfax, Virginia
Maybe good for children who don't care if they have the white look, but not for me!
Lesson learned, read the fine print before I wasted a lot of $$. Like your other skin care products so was looking forward to using your sunscreen. Into the trash it goes.....

bad white cast and peeling

I have the tinted version of this and absolutely hate wearing it. It's become a sunblock I only reach for if I am going to be at the beach all day and know a shower will be in my near future. My face is super greasy with this on, and it feels like i'm wearing a full face of makeup. No power helps either

This sunscreen is really nice and doesn't feel greasy or have a smell when applied. I love using this daily in the summertime to protect my skin from the uv rays.

Currently I have been using Cerave sunscreen and I will continue to use it. I really love the way that this sunscreen melts into my skin and it leaves a very nice finish. Most definitely a 10/10

I just find this sunscreen that is two in one, you can use it in your face and in the body. Added to morning foundation for skin protection. It works very well. This is great, it dries clear SUPER fast compared to other SPF's and it doesn't leave that gross sun screen feeling. It dries in a really sheer layer and definitely protects you from that sun on a hot summer day.

Brown girl friendly!! Doesn't burn the eye balls. Only 1 thing about this one,she's expensive for such a small bottle. Only reason I no longer buy it. 6 kids and bills I rather use something that's has a big bottle, brown girl friendly, doesn't break me out and works.

I wanted to love this sunscreen, but it makes the skin feel so sticky, even ten hours later (without reapplication). It feels so heavy and unpleasant, but CeraVe is a great brand, and you can easily rub it in without whitecast (I am extremely pale, but I didn't find that it was too difficult to work with).

This sunscreen is amazing and leaves your skin feeling super hydrated and refreshed. No white cast & makes you super glowy.

I loveee this sunscreen. It is mineral, it has a light tint and super hydrating. If you hate the white cast, you would love this 😍

Amazing people remember to always always put sunscreen even if you don't go out please please sun can you still get inside the house!
Brandy from West Virginia
Horrible white cast. Lord help you if you are wearing black clothes. This even got all over my Fitbit band and was difficult to get off. I love every other Cereve product I've used, so I'm really disappointed with this one. May be fine for specific activities. But I hate it for daily wear.

This is my go to spf to keep in the pool bag. It is great for all faces and applies well. It lasts well through sweat and swimming
Jerrica from Washington
I was expecting more zinc in this for how chalky it is. I read an article that recommended this brand of sunscreen for my toddler. I will probably use it for his body, but definitely need something different for his ears neck and face.

I love CeraVe SPFs, especially their mineral sunscreens. They not only protect the skin from UV rays, but they also hydrate the skin to combat the drying effects of the sun. This is a sunscreen that really keeps skin health in mind and it's super affordable!

I actually use this exact same sunscreen brand SPF and all but also with a tinted moisturizing cream I just get the two in one because it's one less product that I put on my face and I'm obviously going to use both. Works really well fighting the Florida son on my face everyday
ATL from Washington DC
Tried wearing this on its own. I rubbed and rubbed but the whiteness was still there. I thought it need to soak into my skin and went to work…. EIGHT HOURS LATER I was still white in spots and it pills on the face into little white balls. Nope, nope NOPE!

This just has a terrible white cast and doesn't blend well. I do not recommend this sunscreen simply because of those faults.

I love love love this lotion. It doesn't irritate my skin, the way other brands do. It is easy to apply. And, I am not sticking to everything.
