    This sunscreen is the best sunscreen I have ever tried. I have oily, acne-prone skin, that tends to be very sensitive and red. This is the only sunscreen I’ve used that did not make me oily, did not have that awful sunscreen smell, and did not break me out! It makes my skin so smooth and the slight tint helps even out my skin. It doesn’t make my face red at all and it works well under my makeup or alone. Totally love this, so glad I found it.

    Sunscreen is a must if you have blemishes from acne. However it can be difficult to find something that isn’t so oily that you look like a shiny mess! This is sunscreen does the job. I’ve purchased several sunscreens that claim to be a matte finish but end up leaving an oily sticky feeling. Not this one, this baby will give you the protection you need without the greasy feeling. I will keep buying forever.

    I recently bought this one prescribed by my dermatologist and I really like it so much. First time I use it I was a little concern about the color but it blends perfect and is really a matte finish which is great. Also is very light, once you applied it you won’t feel it anymore. This is my favorite everyday face sunscreen, and the size is perfect to carry on my purse.

    I love this sunscreen. For those complaining about it being to thin or not right…i have found you have to give it a few shakes everytime you use it. Just keep it mixed. My face is flawless everytime i use it. When i used the fusion UV coverage was wet and ugly and i had to wear mineral powder over it. Thank you Skin Ceuticals & tell your customers to shake this tube or it can seperate.
