I'm almost done with the tube and I think it probably works best for people with pale skin. I'm Asian and have very pale skin and the slight pink/peach tint makes my face tone look rosy. I like it a lot. It feels a little thick to me so I put it on right after I apply a moisturizer and that helps to glide the sunscreen on my skin.

Avene High Protection Cream SPF 50 Review #2
Pros: gentle, smooth texture
Ease of Use
Great mineral sunscreen for dry and sensitive skin
-January 13, 2010
This has a great texture- very creamy and easy to apply- not thick and chalky like a lot of high SPF mineral sunscreens. I am sensitive to any chemical sunscreens and try every new mineral one that comes out. This compares well to Skinceuticals and much less expensive.
The light luminous peach tint works well with my very pale skin. This would work well for dry skin. I tend to have to layer moisturizers in the winter but this works well for me with a serum underneath.
One star off on ease of use since the product tends to glob a little around the opening of the flip top tube- not a major issue and would not prevent me from purchasing again.
