Rated 4.29 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Great tinted formula, but too small for price
I was recommended this by one of the staff at Ulta after asking if there were any mineral only sunscreens that didn't leave a white tint when I put it on my skin. After trying it out it really is a great liquid sunscreen that absorbs smoothly into the skin, doesn't transfer onto clothes/towels, leaves a nice tan skin tint, and makes my skin glow without looking or feeling greasy!
Truly amazing considering my lack of luck with finding a good mineral sunscreen that doesn't make me look "casket ready"!
The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the bottle is small, and considering the price... I would want a lot more from it. Because it's so small I decided to only use this for my face, I truly would want to use it all over my body but it would get really expensive to replenish after awhile :(
Hopefully they consider making a bigger size that is worth buying for the price, because the size of this bottle could be the travel size!
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Entirely POC Friendly
I have been looking for a daily sunscreen to use that does not leave a white cast on my skin. I've seen many good reviews for this one, and decided to try it. I love that it is not greasy or oily, feels very lightweight, doesn't break me out like most sunscreens and that it provides a nice base for my makeup. I will say I am not a fan of how hard it is to rub in, I feel like I'm going to scrub my face off, but after it is rubbed in it feels like I'm not even wearing sunscreen. It did not leave a white cast per say but because of the tint, it looked almost as though I was wearing the wrong shade of foundation, if you are a person who wears foundation, this may not be a problem because you could just cover it up, but I do not and it just made me look very pale and thus after putting on my makeup I looked almost like a clown. If you have a lighter skin tone this may not be a problem but I have medium-deep skin and this did not work for me which is disappointing because the formulation is great. Perhaps in the future they can release a line with different tints for different skin tones!
Reviewed by 55 customers So far, my favorite sunscreen for face
erika from Gurnee, IL
So far, this is my go to sunscreen for my face. Yes, it's a little pricey but I have trouble with sunscreens burning my eyes and making me breakout. This goes on smooth and matte and works.
An option for sunscreen
BeaB from Morristown NJ
I have been using this sunscreen for @2 weeks now. It seems to do well under makeup although as I use it more, I notice that it feels a little "grainy". It is also very thin and does not have the cream consistency I have become used to with sunscreens. It is not oily or shiny and does not seem to cut makeup wear time short.
My holy grail daily spf
Steph from OK
I wear mineral sunscreen daily. This one is a liquid and not thick and greasy feeling like others I've tried. This blends into a matte powder like finish. But it doesn't cling to and accentuate my dry spots. Wears well under makeup or worn alone.
weird gritty beads
Christie from Elizabeth
I just got this and started using it. There are these weird gritty beads inside this sunscreen that I find weird. Has anyone had this experience?
Will buy again
PattyP from California
Loved this perfect for a day on the boat
My favorite summer face lotion
Faren from Massachusetts
I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It was recommended by a youtuber and thought I'd give it a try. It has a light tint to it but blends very nicely into my skin. It doesn't look like I have added color on my face. It just seems to really even it out with the added benefit of spf 30. My skin is also very sensitive, and I have not had any bad reaction. Highly recommend!
Only sunscreen I will ever buy
Chelle from NJ
This sunscreen makes me WANT to wear sunscreen everyday. It feels amazing on my skin, evens out my skin tomorrow, has no white cast and just feels incredible.
Does the job but not worth the price.
Jasmine from CA
My sensitive skin usually loves anything First Aid beauty and was excited to see a tinted sunscreen version as I have a more medium/warm skin tone. This is blends very well. the formula had a gritty ness to it. When I first Applied I thought my hands were dirty so this wouldn't work very well under make up. If your looking for a tinted mineral sunscreen try the cerave tinted sunscreen much better and half of the price.
Still leaves a white cast on black people
Tambrin from Tampa, FL
Because it's a tinted sunscreen the white cast isn't as pronounced as other sunscreens but it's still present. After an hour of wearing the cast will become a little less apparent but of course after reapplying it builds up back again. Still on the fence about recommending it to anyone. I may keep it for priming my makeup.
Viv from California
I really loved this sunscreen, it doesn't leave the white color in my skin. My skin feels and looks very healthy when I wear this sunscreen. I think it's great for my dry skin it has a good dewy feeling 💕 I will purchase again
Ana from California
Not ideal on its own for dry skin, but works with a moisturizer. Not good for under makeup, but otherwise good
Would be good if I wasn't allergic
Forever Sensitive from Fairbanks, AK
I used it for one day and found out the next day that I am allergic to it. Bit of a bummer since I've heard that this brand is good for people with eczema and that it usually does well on sensitive skin. I don't want to give this a low rating because I was allergic to it. That's a me problem. But It did feel gritty on my skin and I think it was a little expensive.
Otchi727 from San Francisco
Since it is not greasy I don't have to blot my face. I also love that it has SPF 30.
I really love this sunscreen! I've tried a lot of them too..
Kristie W from Alaska
I love how lightweight and sheer this stuff is. I have melasma, and I've literally tried just about every sunscreen on the market. This stuff leaves my skin glowing but not greasy.
BK from VA
I love this sunscreen. I prefer mineral sunscreens because they're better for the environment but I hate the white cast they leave and how difficult they can be to blend into my skin. This one is different, though. I love that it has a tint and it feels like a tinted moisturizer. It does tend to feel heavy on the skin, but I wear makeup daily so it's not a big deal for me. It goes great under my makeup or it works well enough to stand alone. It would be nice to see some shade range for those with lighter and darker skin tones. The color works for me, but I don't see it working as well for women and men that aren't a lighter complexion. I repurchased this because it's so great. I wish it was a bit cheaper but I'll pay for what I love.
Mel from Home
Must buy! I am sensitive to SPF. Combo/oily skin type! This has not given me any reaction/break out, keeps my oils at bay all while giving my skin a soft focus effect and feel. Evens out skin tone and sun protection!!! So glad I tried this!!
Jazmen from Richmond, VA
I bought it a few weeks ago, the texture is kind of griddy idk if I got a bad product or what. However I am dark skin & the product doesn't leave a white cast at all.
bruh put the price down 😹
nubby❤️ from cali
MY GOD, i've sitting here for so long trying to find what to say. all i have to say is it's good and barley there, but ig that's the whole point.
Great for oily skin!
Gracie from Lovetsville, VA
This product is great for my oily skin! it leaves a matte type finish so it doesn't leave my skin feeling extra greasy. This sunscreen is a bit tinted and I have a bit of a tanner skin tone and there's no white cast!
Thank you Hyramm!
Makayla from Anchorage Alaska
I use this after moisturizer, and I love it. I was a little worried of the small tint, but it's blended in seamlessly. No white cast and it doesn't feel like it's trapping my skin in any way.
Best physical spf
Amyfini from Hanson
This is amazing. It is very light . The product comes out very thin and a bit on the watery side but it is amazing and absorbs really well and has a light tint to it so there's no white cast at all just a nice natural looking Glow! I highly recommend it besides the fact that it is not waterproof that is the only reason why it didn't get five stars. Does not clog pores at all. Wears well under make up also
I don't think I will purchase this product again.
Vivian from OH
I used to purchase Ultra Repair Sunscreen Moisturizer with SPF 40 for my face. I can't find it any more in the store or online. I tried Weightless Liquid Sunscreen. For the same price I had more of the Ultra Repair. For this liquid sunscreen, I feel like I have to keep putting more on to cover my face, which means I have to buy more. I break out on the sunscreen chemicals on my entire face and arms, which is why I use First Aid Beauty. I may have to seek out a new product.
Worked great for me!
Cait G from NJ
I ordered this on a whim and am extremely happy with it. I've been looking for a sunscreen that doesn't leave a white cast on my face and is also lightweight and a physical barrier vs. chemical - fit the bill. I'm normally very fair but have gotten a little color so I didn't notice a problem with the tint. Obviously YMMV with the color though.
Yarma from Florida
I use the product in the morning.
Too orange- Just not for me
Ess from Des Moines
I really wanted to like this product and I do love the feel of it, but the tint is too orange for my skin. I have to blend it all the way down to my neck and chest if I'm wearing no foundation over it, and even then I still think it's just too orange on my face. I was wearing it on a run and used my shirt to wipe just a small part of my face (forehead) like just a dab, and orange got on my shirt. This may work for another skin tone just not
Mine! But it does feel and go on nicely.
