This sunscreen feels nice on the skin and leaves a nice glow. I prefer this one over the chemical universal tint sunscreen. The tint works well for me and I have a medium complexion.
I have been using the original tinted moisturizer for several months and it is fantastic, but so glad there is now a water-resistant mineral version as well! This one is great especially in the hot summer weather!
After much reading, I decided to try a physical sunscreen and this brand. Virgin to both, so a very big deal!! I have very sensitive and easily reactive skin. I have used chemical sunscreens all my life and have just dealt with constant burning, tender skin that only subdued about an hour or so after washing off. I have been very hesitant using physical sunscreens mostly because I am Hispanic with beautiful brown skin :) Honestly, I was not sure what to expect with this product and was surprised with initial application. I have always worn makeup but never foundation, powders or any of that sort. This was unlike any sunscreen I have ever used. It applies easily, creates coverage I was not use to ( but mostly pleased with) and did not burn at all after hours of use and reapplication. I live in a VERY hot and humid part of the country so I usually look extra greasy and shiny with sunblock. This is not a matte finish but also not overly shiny especially compared to so many others. It is easy to sweat after being outside for a few minutes and one downside I have experienced is the pooling of the color when I sweat on my forehead or upper lip. Hopefully I will find a way to get around this....or ask makeup users for advice. The color does blend well after a few minutes and looks pretty natural on me. My husband is black/African American with a very deep skin tone and it does not blend into his tone. It absolutely had a white/purple hue on him. Amazingly, this has not burned my eyes at all!!!!! Quite pleased with this purchase, I will repurchase and plan to try other products from this line.
I had their first Universal Tinted SPF and liked it very well. I love the new Physical Universal. It has a bit more coverage, blends well and is not as shiny as the other. SPF is SO important! I'm 62 and my new dermatologist was doing the all over mole check and she said "I can tell you are religious about facial sun screen." I wish I could tell my 20 year old self that! Get this and use it daily!
I purchased this item and the "universal" to compare. As I am very fair/dry skinned (but also acne-prone), I was nervous about the tint being too dark, and the texture (after having a bad experience with a similar product from Elta MD). But I was so impressed! Tint added a welcome glow, while looking 100% natural. Disappeared into my skin (unlike so many other zinc-based products), leaving a dewy finish and hydrating touch. I think I am forever converted to mineral now. It looks/feels/works so beautifully, even if I need my makeup to look snatched.
