I have dry skin with moderate acne, so it gets tricky trying to keep my skin oil free without drying it out (and it does dry out easily). A lot of times my skin will become flakey and when I put my make up on it won't go on smoothly which sucks. This sunscreen doesn't dry my skin out at all. I use it after my moisturizer and before I apply make up. When I do this, my make up goes on very smoothly. I even will mix it with my concealer to cover blemishes and it blends in great. I actually am using the SPF 100 version on this product, because I'm out in the sun a lot and want extra protection. Because I'm middle eastern/italian, I have olive skin and with acne comes PIH. So I worry about the sun darkening the spots even further. When I use this product every day, I notice that the spots fade MUCH quicker than they did when I didn't use as strong SPF. I highly recommend this product. The only thing is is does smell like a sunscreen. It's not very strong, though and I really don't mind the smell. As long as you use other pleasant-smelling products it should be fine..

Pros:
  • Balances out greasiness, doesn't break me out, great to wear under make up, not crazy expensive, lasts for a while
Cons:
  • Smells like sunscreen

“A product I can trust. Simple as that”
By on

I am really liking this sun screen for my face. When the bottle sys fast drying they aren't kidding, this dries up quickly. It feels nice on my skin and isnt oily and greasy. What I like about this is it doesn't just sit on top of my face like oter sun screens. It is truly non comedogenic. My makeup goes on really well over it. It keeps my skin matte which is a big deal because other sunscreens make me look dewy and if I sweat it just sits under the sunscreen. It doesn't happen with this product. It doesn't smell like sunscreen to me it has a lemon scent to it. Which isn't my favorite but I wouldn't go a day without it. I'm using Aha and this product is saving me from sun damage.

Pros

  • Dries Quickly
  • Dries Matte
  • Non comedogenic

Cons

[not submitted]
  • for a few months
  • $ 7.9
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

“Best Sunscreen I Have Found”
By on

I have oily skin and applying this makes my skin extremely oily for about an hour until it sets in. If I look closely, it also leaves a small amount of film on top of my skin and I can see where I had applied it. Other than that, this is a great sunscreen for use on the regimen. Until Dan releases his sunscreen (hopefully soon), I would recommend this product.

  • for about a month
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

I have oily skin, usually extremely oily on my Tzone. I thought that this product was extremely good for my skin because it doesn't break out my skin nor does it cause it to become even more oily. Bottom line is that it does its job. I usually get those freckles if i do not put on sunscreen, and this is pretty good because it keeps me from getting freckles so far. However, I would have to say that I don't use this product everyday, but I definitely love it when i do use it!

Pros

  • doesn't make me feel oily
  • Doesn't cause breakouts
  • Doesn't dry out my face
  • Does its work

Cons

  • A little expensive I would say
  • It feels a bit dry at first
  • Have this sunscreen smell
  • light
  • for more than a year
  • $ 16

It's very important to protect your skin from the sun. After years of exposure it can cause aging all over your face and neck.

This is great to put on before makeup, in fact, I mix it WITH my lotion so that my lotion isn't greasy.

I recommend this if you are using Dans AHA,

Pros

  • Isn't greasy, smells good, dries up leaving your skin kind of 'matte'.

Cons

  • None
  • moderate
  • for a few months
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

As far as sunscreens go, this product is great. Just to find a sunscreen that doesn't clog pores is an achievement I think. I used to have moderate acne, and now that I finally cleared it up, I am conscious about finding products that won't break me out. Sunscreen is important for me because I have acne scars, and the sun would slow down the healing process and seal them in permanently. Dan always raves about the importance of sun protection, so before he develops an acne.org sunscreen, I recommend trying this product. :)

Pros

  • DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT. The "non-comedogenic" label does not lie. All the other sunscreens I have tried have broken me out.
  • so light that it doesn't even feel like sunscreen. If you are like me, and hate the sticky feel of most sunscreens, you will love this one.
  • high SPF and PA protection. I spend time playing sports outdoors at school, so I need something that has good protection.

Cons

  • This product is great for people with oily skin. I unfortunately thought that because I sometimes get a shiny nose and forehead, I also have oily skin. Wrong. I have mixed/combination skin, and this product dries my face out a lot, especially my cheeks. Beware people with non-oily skin.
  • Dries too quickly. This is probably just because I haven't used dry-touch sunscreens before though, so I'm still getting rubbing it in quickly. I always end up with white splotches.
  • for a few weeks
  • $ 16
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

If you're going to be going out in hot weather, or doing activities that will make you sweat, be aware that this is NOT very sweat-proof. I had to stop using this on my face because it would run when I was at all sweating, and hurt my eyes so much that they were watering all the time. Don't use this if you're going hiking or something. I decided the non-comedogenic properties were not worth the extreme eye-watering and switched to plain ol' sunscreen for hiking, biking, etc.

Pros

  • Doesn't cause breakouts
  • Not shiny
  • Works under makeup

Cons

  • Runs if you're sweating
  • Hurts eyes
  • light
  • inconsistently
  • $ 7
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I does the job. Simple as that. Doesn't break me out. Forehead is a bit oily, but 10 mins after I put it on, I use oil blotting sheets on my face to take out the oily and I'm okay for the most part

Pros

  • Goes on Sheer (which can be a con if u have dry skin), I like the smell (very guy friendly), Doesn't break me out

Cons

  • Sheerness, which will only make u feel dryer if you have dry skin or flakiness from the bp, a bit oily/greasy (not a legit con, as all sunscreens make u feel oily/greasy), Doesn't have zinc oxide, which Dan raves about (has avobene instead)
  • light
  • for a few months
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
