Rated 4.77 out of 5 stars
I have combination/sensitive (and sun sensitive) skin and was searching for a clean, cruelty-free mineral sunscreen that wouldn't feel oily, clog my pores or leave a white film on my face when using. I found that ECLIPSE Sheer Mineral Sunscreen has met all of my criteria and gone above my expectations! After my morning skincare routine I apply ECLIPSE as the last part of that routine and it works perfectly. No oiliness, no clogged pores and it truly is sheer (I only need to use two quick little pumps to cover my entire face and neck) after I smooth it into my skin. I wait about 15 minutes and then apply any makeup I might be wearing for the day. And voilà! Perfectly sun protected and smooth, soft skin. Because I need to use so little of this amazing sheer mineral sunscreen each day to protect my very sun sensitive skin, this first bottle has lasted me months so far. No scents. No irritation. And no sunburns. It stands up to the highest heat of summer, or most intense workout, and doesn't sweat off, either. I only wish that I had bought this excellent sheer mineral sunscreen sooner! You will wish the same, too.
First let me say that I have had clear skin for the past 10+ years excluding a small white head or two around that time of the month. I have not had a single cystic pimple since I was a teenager. I really wanted to love this sunscreen because not only is it half the price of the sunscreen I've been using I love earth harbor and the consistency was perfect not giving me a white cast. However, after wearing this sunscreen all day I washed my face and noticed a spot on my chin that was starting to get sore. The next morning I woke up to a giant cystic pimple on my chin. I have changed nothing besides the sunscreen in my daily routine and even food, stress and exercise wise nothing has been out of my normal routine, but still...I chalked it up to coincidence. I again used this sunscreen for day 2 and by the end of the day I had a sore spot on the other side of my chin. I woke up to another giant cystic pimple. So I started to research all of the ingredients in this sunscreen and sure enough the Coconut Alkanes got flagged. Apparently they are known to cause acne who knew?! I stopped using this sunscreen and no more cystic pimples appeared and the ones that showed up started to go down. I love some of earth harbors products like their Sea Samphire Serum and Marina oil and would highly recommend those products, but I just can't get behind this sunscreen.

the sunscreen itself is fine but the pump on mine doesn't work so i have to scoop it out with my finger

Unfortunately, like others have said, I couldn't get the pump to even get any of the product out. I tried multiple times, thinking the product just had to work its way up the pump but, when I opened it, the tube for the pump was so bent around and around that there was no way the product could have made its way up. Additionally, the product is SO thick that I'm not sure how it even could have fit through the tiny tubing. Instead of scooping it all out, I'm planning to return.

Left my face feeling kind of greasy, but the biggest issue is how jacked the bottle is. When I opened it, I couldn't get the pump to work, and removed it to see if I could get it working. The tube leading from the pump into the bottle was bent into a zig-zag, rendering the pump completely useless. Now I have to scoop it out and use the bent tube like a tiny spatula. The moisturizer itself isn't anything special. Not sure I would buy again, especially if they're not cautious during the packing process to make sure the pump will actually work.

I have several serums from Earth Harbor that I absolutely love but this sunscreen is not it. First, the pump on the bottle I got doesn't work. I have to unscrew the cap and scoop the product out. When I do it looks curdled. There is no expiration date on the bottle so I can't tell if it's still good.
I first swatched this on my hand I got super excited, it looked like it'd have a beautiful glow with a radiant pink sheen. But when i put it on my face the white cast was so horrible. It makes me look like a ghost. Its also thicker than I prefer.
Sadly this is a hard pass.

I have tried so many mineral sunscreens and every single one seemed to either clog my pores, give me a reaction of some sort, or dry put my face. Surprisingly, this one is a win.
I do notice a slight white cast when initially applied but it absorbs in and eventually really isn't noticeable. So far, im impressed.
Christina from San Antonio, TX
I wanted to like this so much, because I absolutely love the rest of Earth Harbors facial products; but this sunscreen is HORRIBLE! As soon as I applied it to my face (after the moisturizer), it was like my skin couldnt breath and I started to sweat so much! This stuff completely clogged my pores. It also made my skin feel greasy yet dry at the same time….my skin even started to flake around my chin and cheeks. I couldn't stand it anymore and had to wash my face again to take it off. This product is terrible and I definitely do NOT recommend.

I have tried a lot of mineral sunscreens and this is by far my favorite ive ever used. It has 100% natural ingredients, and my skin loves it! It leaves literally no white residue or cast and blends in very easily. It isnt sticky either. Also, love the packaging!

i am very picky when it comes to face mineral sunscreen and i needed to have SPF on my trip to Hawaii and this was the perfect find that me and my bf used the entire week and we did not get burned on the face at all.
just be sure to blend it in nicely so it becomes sheer, otherwise you will get that zinc oxide look on your face but it was very easy to blend in.
this will be my new go-to face sunscreen and i loved that i did not break out after using this for the first time. it kept my skin supple and fresh and barely had to put on foundation on my face, this product was amazing.

this is the best mineral sunscreen ive tried! its thin and non greasy. there is no white cast at all on me. its not matte but not overly hydrating. it is on the pricey side for the amount you get but thats totally worth it to me for having no white cast!!
AbbyGrace from Atlanta, Georgia
It seems that the pump they put with the bottle does not fit. So the straw that goes inside the container is kinked and doesn't allow the product to come out well.
Elle from Louisiana
Perfection. Silicone-Free product that absorbs well, is non-sticky, doesn't pill, and no noticeable scent or white cast.
Kristen H from Undisclosed
Superb, light sunscreen for my combination/acne prone skin. Does not feel heavy or greasy after it absorbs. Love!
Athena from Cicero IL
Doesnt leave a cast or a sticky feeling and a little goes a long way. Been trying to find a sunscreen that works on my face for a while and this is the only one that seems to work. Doesn't pill up when applied either which is great!
Esther from Blackfoot Idaho
Love it! Absorbs quickly and is NOT sticky or tacky. I am very happy with this product and feel
Protected while out in the sun!!
Chloe from Carrollton GA

Ashawnee from Beverly Hills CA
Even when im running my latest I still have time for this! It's honestly perfect! Love the color of bottle and size. Spreads so easy! Make my skins have that amazing glow!
Meghan H from Undisclosed
A little goes a long way, soaks onto the skin nicely leaving a smooth texture & glow (like all earth harbor products!) and doesn't sting like some SPF's I've tried in the past.

Not greasy, absorbs well, plays nice with moisturizer and makeup.
For a sunscreen this feels really nice on the skin.
Wish the bottle was bigger, but I really really like this sunscreen.
Lizabeth M from Undisclosed
This sunscreen is so lightweight on the skin and perfect to put under ur base makeup! most sunscreens i've tried started to peel and spread my makeup but this one is the only one that works for me !

I really like Eclipse sheer mineral sunscreen. It goes on very smoothly and spreads evenly with a white mask.
