Fantastic

I bought this as an experimental sunscreen assuming I wouldn't be crazy about it because of the glow. It's actually gorgeous. I substitute Paula's serum spf 30 for this when I'm in the mood for a very subtle glow. I have not noticed any lingering white cast whatsoever. Another outstanding product by this fabulous company.

Gentle and Effective

It is very difficult to find an all-mineral sunscreen since most such products tend to be either thick, pasty, or white cast. However, this product is light, absorbs quickly, and leaves your skins moisturized. This product is neither greasy nor occlusive. I like that it has no alcohol, fragrance, or essential oils. It's packed with powerful antioxidants that make sunscreen more effective. I think this product would also be ideal for someone who is looking for a sunscreen for post-procedures, such Fraxel, microneedling, chemical peel, etc. This product was also not shiny at the end of the day, which is important for humid summer weather.

I've used this for a couple of days, and it's amazing. Leaves a believable glow! The lotion is creamy and absorbs quickly. This one is a keeper.
