Kinda glowy finish for dry skin

I just wrote another review and forgot to say that the finish is slightly glowy.

It isn't tacky at all, it completely dries down for me with my dry winter combination skin. However it isn't nearly moisturizing enough on it's own for my dry winter skin, so I put it on over a full skincare routine including the kinship mellow moisturizer.

The glow I get from it isn't much more than I'm used to after a full a skincare routine, however I love a ton of moisture and a silky or glowy finish so that's where I'm coming from. It's definitely not matte and I'm guessing that's why it doesn't work as well for oilier skin types.

I have been using the krave beauty beet chemical sunscreen, which is Super Glowy so that's the finish I'm used to. However I wanted to move away from that one even though I love the texture and finish because I have sensitive skin and I feel like the high level of alcohol slowy dries out and makes my skin more red. So I've been searching for a fully mineral reef safe option to replace it.

I also recently used the maelove zinc sunscreen and hated that one. It left a tacky, heavy finish and made me look like a ghost the whitecast is so bad even for my pale/reddish skin.

I also really liked the cotz mineral tinted sunscreen for the lack of whitecast, but I hated the silicone finish.

After trying all of those sunscreens (and other even worse ones of course) and being unhappy I felt like I was very picky about sunscreens, but this one does the trick for me. It ticks…

Great light sunscreen

There is so much to love about this sunscreen! And after a few days of use nothing to dislike.

I have sensitive dry combination acne prone skin, and my skin usually likes zinc, but can still get breakouts from some zinc sunscreens. I have a very fair skin tone with lots of redness.

First, for my skin tone it has no white cast. Even though I'm light skinned I still often get white cast with "invisible" non-nano zinc sunscreens that make me look washed out and like a ghost since I have a lot of natural redness. This one really does look invisible on me. It blends in immediately and looks like nothing at all.

I watched a lot of reviews and saw that the whitecast was kind of a mixed result depending on your skin type and skin tone, but it seems to work great for mine which is slightly dryer and less oily.

I haven't had any sensitization or acne with this product.

There is a very light scent of sunscreen to it. I get where the chocolate scent in the reviews is coming from. There's something almost sweet to the smell but personally I wouldn't call it chocolate. The sunscreen smell is minimal compared to every other mineral (and non-mineral!) sunscreen I've used.

For me it leaves no tackiness on the skin and wears well throughout the day. I hate the tacky residue feeling, and I'm really happy with this product on that front. You can kind of feel something on the skin, which I think helps it work well as a makeup primer, but it's very light and doesn't bother me. I'm also very…

Pleasant enough...

I have a darker complexion, so it definitely does leave a white cast..but it does go away after it settles! Just make sure you blend it in. And if you wear makeup after you apply, it’ll be okay. I also have oily skin so I’m anxious to try this out in the summer to see if it’s gonna make my skin super oily. It’s winter where I am right now so it’s pleasant enough. It’s not bad though! Works well with my other skin products.

Lightweight sunscreen with a glass-skin appearance

This is a very moisturizing sunscreen for my combination skin. Heavy enough for Northeast winter. Don’t really need a moisturizer under it if you tend to have oilier zones. Very lightweight and white cast isn’t too bad on my fair skin, though reapplications can make it more apparent. If you’re looking for a mineral sunscreen, this is a good pick and is suitable for most skin types I would say. Very oily skin may not like this because of its shiny finish. Would probably cause too much white cast on darker complexions.

Unscented please!

I love the ethics of this company, and the formula's one of the best I've tried (maybe it's a tad dry for my skin). But really I'd be totally in love if there were an unscented option. Especially for my sensitive skin. The marshmallow scent is nice, but neverending.
