Customer Reviews

"Finally, a sunscreen that doesn't clog my pores. Light everyday sunscreen that is good for acne prone skin or oily and mixed skin types. This sunscreen feels similar to EltaMd clear, with the difference that is not shiny. I would recommend this sunscreen to wear under makeup and for touch ups. If you enjoy Skinmedica products, this product won't disappoint you." – ★★★★★ Khadija, Verified Buyer

"This is a sunscreen that does NOT leave you white. This is the first all mineral sunscreen that I have found that doesn't leave you white. I pray they don't discontinue it. There is an odd smell when you put it on but it goes away once you rub it in. It's not an offensive smell, just odd…but I don't care, it is such a great sunscreen!" – ★★★★★ Becca, Verified Buyer

"I have been using Skinmedica tinted sunscreen for sensitive skin for 2 years and love it. I recently purchased the clear due to the l higher spf number and am very pleased with this one also. It’s not oily or too creamy and provides very good coverage. I will continue to use these products." – ★★★★★ Patty, Verified Buyer
