First of all, I have only given 1 star because I have to in order to post a review, otherwise I'd be saying 0.

After thinly applying this product on my face, in less than a few hours I ended up with an itchy, red, swollen, blistering face. I was not in direct sunlight, I had a wide brimmed hat on and I was outside for maybe an hour/hour and a half in the late afternoon. The product has actually burnt my skin. I have been to the doctor and been prescribed a steroid and I am also taking antihistamines to subside the swelling, itchiness and stinging.

I thought I'd do a little bit of investigating and stubbled across these reviews. Over 50% of the reviews explain the exact same reaction I am experiencing right now. I cannot for the life of me fathom why this product is still on the market?!


The worst break out I've ever had
Reviewed on June 6, 2016

Even when I was a teenager I haven’t had anything so bad. It took over 1 year for my skin to heal, but there’re still lots of scars on my chin and on my forehead.

Before that, I never had to use makeup everyday, it was awful, I’ve never seen my face like that. If you have a sensitive, acne prone skin, STAY AWAY from this sunscreen!!!! It took me a while to figure out it was the sunscreen that was causing this. This year I gave it a second chance (but instead of using on my face I applied on my chest and back)… terrible idea.

(Before that I used ROC Minesol and it was pretty good!)

Emergency use only

Developed 3 extremely small whiteheads after 5 day use. Also it may or may not have caused an open blackhead to become an infected skin area. People will ask why you look shiny.

Dangerous product that can permanently scar sensitive skin
Reviewed on April 30, 2015

I started getting a similar reaction to this product as many of the other posters. Now I have extensive, permanent scarring that looks like second degree burn marks with bumps on my neck and both hands (very ugly). It is terribly itchy and does not respondent to steroid treatment or psoriassis lotions. I have to use thick makeup to cover the scars. Stay away from this product. The reaction is so strong that I would't be surprised if it is recalled.

Leaves white flakes on your face )=

It did not soak into my skin well and when I rubbed it on my face it left white flakes/dried glue consistency on my face.

Tiny pimples/rashes all over the face
Reviewed on March 8, 2015

After using this product for 4 days,

I got lots of tiny pimples and rashes all over my face. My confident level has gone downhill.

This is the worst pimples stages I had since my teenage life!!

DO NOT BUY! You have been warned!!

I am talking with lawyers trying to sue them!!

I made the worst decision ever by switching the sunscreen!

Hesitant on buying this moisturizer while grocery shopping knowing i'd be in trouble if my skin care teachers at school found out, i proceeded to anyways.. it was a great deal with a high SPF so i thought id give it a try. I used product after using Neutrogena Grapefruit Scrub for 3 days. I NEVER breakout, have never had acne in my life! My chin feels tight with dry scabby patches of burning skin, which is tolerant. The 25 tiny pustules on the other hand is not. It looks as if i have baby acne and feels absolutely terrible. Yesterday was the first day i woke up with it, I used a chemical exfoliant from well-known Dr.renaud called "vegetale" along with "penaten" as a night time cream, also used for diaper rashes. Its better today and starting to dry up more but i havent stopped popping the hideous zits. Not sure how long this will last :(

I used this on our recent trip to Hawaii and although it seemed good (absorbed well etc.) by the end of the 10 day trip my nose was covered in tiny little pimples that took weeks to go away. I don't normally get that and was using no other new products so it was definitely the sunscreen.

My 12 yr old daughter used this for 3 days on her face. The first 2 days without incident. By the end of the third day her checks, forehead, nose, chin and neck are covered in a rash of small, red, pimple-like bumps that somewhat burn and itch. We have been treating her with benadryl and I am actually relieved to find these posts/reviews so that we know it is most likely the sunscreen that has caused this. I would not recommend this product for anyone with sensitive skin at all. We have been treating with benadryl for 2 days and the bumps are still present. Nasty product. We also bought this product at Costco in a multi-pack.
