This used to be called tinted matte sunscreen - and I'm glad they've changed the name because it was never matte on me at all.
Its not *as* greasy/shiny as most sunscreens - and if you have dry skin you will probably love it - but if you are oily then you will look shiny.
The tint on this is very sheer. I am male and at first was apprehensive about it being tinted as I didn't want to look like I had applied makeup - however it doesn't give this effect at all. It blends in nicely and just makes you look 'healthier' but very natural. I did end up appreciating the tint - however beware in that it would rub off onto my shirt collars and was a pita to remove.
I have very reactive skin and this gave me no problems at all. The texture and colour are perfect and if my skin wasn't so oily I would probably have stayed with this. However I now wear Neutrogena dry touch SPF 30 - which I recommend for oily skins!
Having recently had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my face I was recommended by my dermatologist to use this. Used it only once and it works a treat. I have problems with cosmetics around the eye area and wondered if I may have a reaction to this but not so. Highly recommend it.
I was recommended this product by a dermatologist as my skin hyper-pigments. It really is excellent. One application in the morning on face and neck, and you are sorted for the day. I have been using it for three years now and you won't find anything better.
I have used this product since 2005 after being diagnosed with a uva/uvb sensitivity. Sunsense daily face, gives a good matt finish without the heaviness of a body sun lotion & I use it daily, summer & winter. Thoroughly recommended!
I have been looking for a good sun cream that is not too sun creamy to wear whilst cycling. This stuff fits the bill (it is comfortable to wear and does not leave a white film), I just wish they did it in factor 15 or 30. 50 seems to be a bit of a waste for the English winter...
I bought this on recommendation from Sali Hughes at the Guardian. I'm usually quite lax about using facial sunscreen when I'm not on holiday, but I don't want to age prematurely so I've decided to start using SPF. The product colour is a bit scary in the tube but goes on sheer (I'm pale and freckled) and you don't see it on. it is a good moisturiser, so I find I can put it on straight over serum and skip moisturiser. I'm impressed and I've not burned by face yet. It's a very good consistency for a factor 50, which can often by very heavy and hard to rub in!
I need a high protection sun screen for my face and I have tried quite a few over the years but none as good as this one. It goes on very easily like a tinted moisturizer which has a nice mat invisible finish when blended in. It is a good under make up base or equally good on it's own and has given me complete protection - not a freckle in sight. I am paranoid about sun induced wrinkles and have every confidence this product is giving me what I need. The best thing about it is it gives me no spots at all which all other sun protection products do for me.
