I've been using this sunscreen for about a month now, and it's probably the best facial sunscreen I've used.
>the only sunscreen I've found that doesn't make my face look super shiny or greasy
>Doesn't make me break out; other drugstore sunscreens specifically formulated for faces have made me break out in the past
>One of the higher SPF facial sunscreens I've seen
>Has ceramides and niacinamide to protect and restore the skins natural barrier and reduce redness. I notice reduced redness when I'm wearing it but haven't noticed any permanent changes to my actual skin
>Reduces the look of my pores (probably by filling them in with cream?)
>Seems to cooperate with my makeup (Estee Lauder foundation on top)
>Very thick and doesn't spread easily, so I feel like I have to rub really hard to get it to blend in and it feels like I'm hurting my face
>Leaves a definite white cast on my face no matter how much I rub it in
>Depending on the thickness, I can feel it sitting on my face the whole day, which doesn't really bother me but I wouldn't call it a "pro"
>After a few hours of wear I can see the sunscreen starting to collect in areas with fine lines or creases because there will be a white line. this doesn't happen when I wear my foundation over it, but that may be because Estee Lauder double wear is a miracle worker
>Have used it over certain moisturizers such as Clinique Lotion+ and it caused the creams to separate and roll off my face in little white balls. Doesn't seem to do that with my Hada Labo milk moisturizer though
>Because of the thickness and white cast, I wouldn't consider this stuff easy to apply throughout the day unless you don't care about looking like Casper or you have access to a mirror. I put this on in the morning before an 11 hour shift outside on a partially cloudy day and was sunburnt by the end of the day, so this stuff is not adequate for me for just once a day use, but most sunscreens are intended to be reapplied anyway
Overall, I think the pros outweigh the cons for this product, but I think the deciding factor for 4 stars instead of 5 is that I have to practically rub my skin off to apply the product evenly. Also, I am white af (think ivory colored foundation) so the white cast isn't as noticeable on me, but I can still see it and therefore do not recommend this product for darker skinned people unless the cast doesn't bother you
