This is my holy grail sunscreen. It is very lightweight and dries matte with a nice tint that looks perfect on my skin. I can't imagine what the other viewers are talking about a "strange tint". I have very average skin color (I wear medium beige in Bare Escentuals) and it looks great on me. I just wish it wasn't so pricey. I use another ss on overcast days when I feel I don't need as much protection so that I can "stretch" this.
A real shame, because the texture is fabulous - nice & lightweight, easily applied and great for oilier skins.
I'd hoped this would impart a fair neutral-to-yellow-toned glow to offset the usual white cast of titanium or zinc oxide, but instead I still looked pasty, with an ashy-grey undertone. I had to apply yellow powder over everything just to look normal! I can't even give this one away, so it's being used on my hands.
Pros: smooth texture, lightweight, absorbs quickly, high spf

Now that it's summer, am using this every morning. During the winter I've been using a similar Origins product that gives a little more coverage/color, but it only has an spf of 15--not nearly enough for my fair skin in the summer. Otherwise, love this product.
Pros: smooth texture, lightweight, absorbs quickly, pleasant fragrance, gentle

Was using La Roche Anthelios for years but my dermatologist recommended this product. Have converted and now use every single day. It absorbs quickly, doesn't cause any breaks (even chest) and has a very faint tint.
I was hoping that this would be the solution to looking too white with a physical sunscreen. However, my skin looked gray. I have a slight beginning of summer, tan, but I'm not tanned. I don't see how this would look alright on any skin color.
