I've tried so many sunscreens but most of them caused itching. Some were okay but remained greasy residue, which ruined makeup on it. But this one works well as a primer and doesn't make my skin dry at all.
Ok but not great
Ok but not great
Of course, anything without chemicals, and using the oxides as sunscreen, seems great but WILL have a white residue. If you are not white colored already or cannot handle being a shade lighter after application, do not get this. I don't mind that personally, but it did cause my eyes to water if it gets in the eyes, so be careful using it on your face. Also the white residue may get on clothes so be wary of smudges of it showing up white on dark clothing. The texture is very thick and it dries quickly so it can be hard to spread very well. I didn't personally like the scent. I will save it only for application to my body in direct sun, but I won't get it again.

It's a good sunscreen with zinc oxide, definitely provides good protection against sun but when I have applied it on my skin, my skin looks all white and greasy.I have used other mineral sunscreens , they still makes my face white but they don't have the greasy effect. So, this product is good for the rest of the body if you worry about greasy looking face.

Age Reversal Mineral Sunscreen

I really like this and I use it as a face cream during those really hot and sunny summer days! It has a thick creamy consistency that goes on easy and smooth on the skin. It does lighten your skin a bit, but it's nothing compared to other natural sunscreens I've tried that make you look like a ghost. If you can't live with being a little paler my advice is to brush some mineral foundation powder on top of the sunscreen, it works just fine! The only negative thing about this sunscreen is that it makes my face very shiny, but I can live with that. This is definately coming with me when I move to New Zealand! (I have a slighty dry combination skin.)
