Rated 4.45 out of 5 stars
I have oily, acne-prone skin (and live in Hawaii where it's quite humid year-round) and this sunscreen worked okay for me. Pros: it blends in nicely and very quickly, leaves literally zero white cast, didn't clog my pores/break me out, was fairly affordable, is reef safe, has a pretty blue color to it, and I LOVED the pump dispenser which made the application experience so much easier and cleaner than most SPFs I've tried. Cons: burned my eyes badly when I sweat, needed frequent reapplication, and most importantly, although it blended in nicely, it felt VERY greasy on my skin (upon application and after rubbing it in), even when applied on freshly cleansed skin in the am. Of course there's no such thing as any mineral sunscreen that feels weightless- you can always tell it's on you since mineral SPFs are a physical sunscreen- but this one felt particularly greasy on my face, like one of those sunscreens your mom used to slather all over you before a pool day as a kid lol. This is always a big factor for me in choosing an SPF, so unfortunately I probably won't be reordering. Overall it holds up to most of its claims and would probably work really well for you if you have dry/combination/acne-prone skin!
i'm someone with very dry skin due to tretinoin, and i have super duper acne prone skin. i also have hyperpigmentation and slight redness, as well as textured skin. while this sunscreen didn't break me out, the formula is definitely not breathable imo. it pills up very easily if you have hair on your face, and also if you skin isn't super hydrated or moisturized, this sunscreen will not work for you. if you use serums in the morning or thick moisturizers, this sunscreen will make everything pill up into a mess on ur face. this sunscreen has a white caste on me, though it goes away throughout the day. the pump has never worked for me at ALL (mind u i have used and emptied out 4-5 bottles of this sunscreen), so i have to open it up in order to get product out, which is very inconvenient. sometimes the sunscreen has it's good days and applies perfectly on my face, and other days it doesn't and it'll pill up near my nose or lips. the only reason i have been using it for this long is because i have hyperpigmentation and i know no other mineral sunscreen that doesn't break me out. this formula can be very chalky and make you hate the way your skin looks.

I have acne prone, oily skin and very rarely experience reactions to products. This stuff dried out my skin like crazy and absolutely destroyed my eye area. I have a ton of dry patches now and my eyelids are so puffy and scaly
Kiwi from Orlando, FL
I was soooo excited about this product. I have bad rosacea so I was so happy to see this product's green tint. However it leaves this awful orange film on my face after an hour or so. I can't use this at all. I wanted this to work for me so bad :(
Luli from Texas
I have red acne prone skin. Never broke out from it, and no white cast on me. The gel consists works amazing under make up. There is no excuse not to use sunscreen when this product exist. First step in anti aging and looking young longer. I have purchased 3 bottles already.

I love almost everything about this sunscreen .. it combats redness, looks great when dried down, and does well under makeup. But it has one MAJOR flaw: it burns my eyes like crazy. I don't even have sensitive eyes, but if a speck of this product gets inside them.. PAIN. I've even tried to avoid the area around the eyes and it still burns. I'll finish the tube for my neck/hands because I do like it, but won't be a repurchase unfortunately.

Love this sunscreen for my oily, acne-prone skin! It also works so well as a makeup primer! I use it with my Estee Double Wear foundation.
Kat from NYC
I have combination oily skin that makes finding a suncreen that does not make my skin look greasy. This sunscreen however, works great! It goes on smooth and isnt oily or sticky like other sunscreens. The tint cancels out my redness however if you have darker skin it may leave a cast.
Mandy from Indiana
I absolutely love this sunscreen! My skin gets very red and this helps to reduce that! Also applies smoothly and leaves my skin feeling silky. It also doesnt break me out and i have acne prone skin!
Makayla from Arlington, VA
Ive been suffering with pustule rosacea and have never found a sunscreen that worked well with my skin. This soothes redness, protects, and doesnt flare up any pustules like all others would! Hope they never change the formula because this will be a reoccuring buy for me!
Sam from San Diego
I bought this because of the slight green tint that i thought would help a bit of my redness which it did. Im not the biggest fan of the applicator, sometimes you have to pump a lot for it to come out. The biggest no from me is that this stings so bad when it gets in your eyes. The first time i used it i rubbed my eyes and omg it hurt so bad i had to legit wash my eyes out. And even at the end of the day when i would wash it off or when i was in the shower my eyes would hurt and no its too kuch thats why i will not be repurchasing which sucks because it does feel/look nice on the skin.
Ren from USA
It doesn't break me out or burn and it's reef safe which is great! The green tint helps hide my redness. The downside is that it has a noticeable white cast. I have light-medium to medium skin so I don't think it will work for someone with darker skin.
Lily from Tacoma,Washington
This skincare has a really good reciple and definitely helped protect me from the sun but, the white cast this sunscreen has is so bad! No matter how much time I spent rubbing it in there was still a very visible white cast.

I have an extremely hard time finding SPF for my face. They usually irritate my skin ir give me little whiteheads all over. I wore this for the first time and loved it. Its a gel cream texture and went on great. It didn't bother my skin at all. I'm buying an extra tube so i have plenty for spring and summer.
Elena from Upland, CA
I have been using this suncreen for about a year and it leaves no white cast. It doesnt leave me oily after a long day and its probably because I suffer from more dry skin rather than oily skin. But overall great product.
Stephanie from New Jersey
This is absolutely 100% the best sunscreen I've ever tried on my face. Doesn't break me out or feel absolutely disgusting by the end of the day (looking at you, Super Goop, ugh). Also no issues with running into my eyes or burning! I give it a few minutes to soak in and then it sits great under makeup.
Joanna from Oxnard CA
I've bought this product around 3-4 times now. I can't stop using it, it's affordable, leaves a nice finish, and goes well with my makeup over it!
However, it has a minimum white cast, which I don't mind because it makes my skin look amazing.
Would definitely recommend.
For reference, I'm a medium light skin tone, not sensitive, and I just struggle with a few pimples, I could also see this product working for someone with acne.
Brianna from Coalinga, California
Im absolutely loving this sunscreen. Im always on the hunt for the best mineral sunscreen and i think this is my new favorite! Ive got type 1 and 2 rosacea and not only does this nor irrate it, but it also helps neutralize some of the redness.
The only thing i dont really like about this sunscreen is that it is a bit tacky/sticky feeling and so i feel like it can rub off easily. BUT it doesnt pill like other sunscreens and that is a HUGE pro in my book and makes it worth it. Also, and this may just be a manufacture error/faulty product design, but thw pump stopped working after a couple of days of using. Luckily the pump can be unscrewed but it is a slight annoyance.
Ive yet to wear this under makeup, but so far i dont there being any issue! This sunscreen is perfect for those who are fair/light skinned. Ive used their other sunscreen, but the tint was a tad too dark and made my face look orange.
J from Lansing, MI
It wears well under my makeup and cancels out my redness. I would LOVE if this had a higher SPF though.
Ps from Pennsylvania
This dramatically reduced the redness on my arms where I have keratosis pilaris. Surprisingly did not do the same for the redness/uneven tone on my face!
katelynn from ohio
I love how light weight this is and the reducing of red. however, this made me incredibly itchy and started to burn. I later had flakey skin. Becareful if you are sensitive
brooke from LA, CA
just started using this and its amazing. does not burn my face, applies so smoothly, have not had one break out. my skin is oily, dry, and sensitive and this is by far the best sunscreen ive used. i have tried supergoop which completely broke me out and made me more oily and i have tried eltamd which just made me oily and sticky. this is great for the price and use. i recommend.
Clarissa from Houston, TX
I love this. Go great on skin, feels good, doesn't clog my pores. I'm definitely trying to get into SPF but was scared of breakouts so I started reading into this and took the jump. Never going back. I LOVVEEEEE this brand!!
Lauren from Laredo, TX
My skin is oily and acne prone. thankfully it didn't break me out like other sunscreens, but it failed to cancel my redness (i looked even more red with and without makeup) and caused my makeup to pill really bad. it also feels really drying. it didnt work for me but could work for someone else
Kelsey from Mansfield Ohio
I have acne-prone skin and this is one of the best sunscreens I have found that helps with the redness of my acne breakouts. This doesn't leave a white-cast on my face and blends in nicely. I absolutely love this product and would recommend to anyone who has acne prone skin.
Kenna from Austin, TX
This have become my new favorite skincare product. I'm a fair red head with sensitive acne prone skin that's dry. It's not grainy like a lot of sunscreens, making it very easy to blend to the skin. I live in central Texas and it's dry and the sun UV index is also super high, and I have to wear sunscreen or I'd fry like bacon. I use this with moisturizer underneath every day, and it wears well under my Estée Lauder foundation. Not scented. If you're fairer and need a good everyday sunscreen I would highly recommend trying this product.
Nic from Des Moines IA
This sunscreen smooths out nicely, and corrects my redness beautifully. It will look so nice for three hours. After that, my face will begin to feel tight and itchy from being so unbelievably dry. The only way to make it better is to wash my face and start over. Will not be repurchasing.
