Great Product for Some

This is really luxurious stuff! But if you have oily skin the shine is too much. My face feels somehow heavy and oily and yet still dry, I'm not sure how. I've been looking for a sunscreen that is clean and not oily and thought this might be the one, but for me it just doesn't do the trick especially at such a high price point. Plus, I don't like the pot, its hard to get the product out. If you have dry skin, this would be wonderful stuff.

I’ve found my favorite SPF :)

This is worth every penny!
The idea of wearing an oily SPF has always haunted me. I hated the idea of having to wear something that would make me feel like I was -literally- melting in the Florida weather.
This SPF is the BEST!!!!! I didn’t want to spend too much money on another SPF, but I did and I am so happy I found a really good (clean) one!!!
It is worth it!!!!!

Too oily

This is a luxurious and pricey sun protection cream. The ingredients are stellar and it does not leave a cast. However, I would definitely say it’s not for oily skin. I’m 43 with combination skin, and I thought I could use extra moisture so I thought it was a good option. But it’s hot and windy where I live , and I find that my hair gets oily, my skin is oily and overall the shine is too much. It’s just not ideal for me. But I think those with very dry skin would enjoy it.

I really love this sunscreen slash moisturizer. It goes on super smooth without irritating my skin or making my face oily. It’s very effective and worth every penny.
