Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this product! I have sensitive, spot-prone combination skin (with a very oily t-zone) and am very sensitive to the sun. Yesterday I ran a half marathon in 26 degree heat. I was boiling hot, sweating a lot and was in direct sun for a total of about 5 hours (running for nearly 3). There was not a bit of redness or sunburn, absolutely no congested skin or pores and unbelievably absolutely no shine. I am very picky about my skin care and I think this is brilliant value if you have slightly tricky skin. It needs a good rubbing in otherwise you might find it looks a little bit chalky but as long as you blend there are no problems with this. Brilliant product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shine On I can't speak to the sun protection qualities of this product as I started using it in winter (therefore the two stars to allow for the SPF factor) but as for the anti-shine claim - nope! I have combination skin so I use one pump of this over the same brand's moisturiser and it leaves me looking as shiny as the sun. Even after allowing time for it to sink in I look super oily and it has given me a breakouts in the areas of my skin where I temd to be already oily. I will say that the oily look doesn't seem to increase as the day goes on, but as the initial appearance is already grease city that's not exactly a great feat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for oily skin I'm pleasantly surprised with this. I was skeptical about buying this because of several bad reviews I read. Mostly about it drying to quickly and people not having enough time to spread it causing the appearance white marks. I can only imagine this happened because they applied too much too soon. I apply small amounts at a time and have no problem with spreading it before it dries. I even use it on my eye contours since it doesn't give me millia like sunscreen lotions normally do. The main plus with this though is how great it is for people who's faces always end up being a greasy mess half hour after applying sunscreen to their face. This is the first sunscreen where that hasn't happened to me. If your skin requires hydration though I would suggest using moisturiser underneath since this product really doesn't moisturise one bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff This is a really nice product. I wear suncream every day year round and this product is really excellent. I use about 1/4 of a teaspoon to cover my face and neck. I have oily skin and this does not make me any oiler than normal unlike the La Roche-Posay ANTHELIOS FACE COMFORT CREAM TINTED SPF50+ which did tend to make me a bit greasy but is a good alternative if you have drier skin and it has a bit of a tint so if wanted to you could do without foundation. My morning routine is to wash my face, apply vit c serum and wait 10 minutes, apply this suncream and wait 10 minutes and then apply a primer on top before applying my make up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sunscreen Needed to up my sun protection following a skin cancer diagnosis. I've always worn foundation together with a lower spf primer in the past and was concerned as to how this sunscreen would perform with make up. Personally, I apply this immediately after my regular moisturiser and then after a short wait I apply my foundation with a brush. I've had no problems with blending or caking and am absolutely delighted to have found a product I can rely on. My skin used to be combination when younger, but with age I've found it has started to be a little dry. That said, although this product would seem targeted at those who may need to control shine, I have experienced no drying at all and my skin is comfortable all day (perhaps because I moisturise immediately prior). In addition, my make up stays put all day. Brilliant stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won't be without it This is a VERY good quality sun scream! i use this on my face every single day when going out. I have been in the sun for hours and have never burnt, it has never caused me any irritation and is extremely matte and non pore clogging. A little on the pricey side but 100% worth it to be honest. If you are gonna spend money on skin care get this (prevention before cure). The only advice that i would give is that when applying you have to act quickly because it is EXTREMELY fast drying, to the extent that if you let bits dry and try to rub it in, it will become crumbly ( I can't see this factor as a negative because its a side effect of it being so matte). i find that i spread it over my face and neck and then instead of rubbing, try to pat it in and this works better than rubbing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sunscreen ever This is literally the best sunscreen I have ever used. I used to use an SPF 50 cleanser by Dr. Russo, which came with a hefty pricetag, however I switched to this recently when going on holiday. I've been using it for four months now, and honestly it is perfect. I have oily/acne prone skin, and my skin can get very shiny. A lot of SPF/moisturising products don't work well on my skin as throughout the day my makeup will begin to slide. With this product that does not happen. I apply it after I've cleansed, toned, and applied face oil to my face every morning. Then I'll finish with a bit of moisturiser and apply my primer. It's a lovely makeup base, works well with other products, and sits brilliantly under makeup. I'll never use another SPF again!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leave a white paste on your face (maybe because im black) I dont know if its because im black (albeit a bit light skin toned) but when i put it on my face it makes me look like i've put on some kind of white paste on my face and it just stays there, it doesn't go away no matter how much i rub it in. Its a shame because it does make my face matte but i can't just wear it alone which is what i bought it for.
