Also, I feel I use an adequate amount to get benefit from the SPF 20 claims, but being that I live in NYC and don't tan, I'm OK with only a little coverage.

I've been searching for the water resistant sunscreen for a while and most of the sun screens, whether it's physical or not, water resistant or not, from high end to drugstore, somehow make me oil after a few hours or simply do not stay on my face because I always sweat so much in summer. ...You really can't beat this price.

Size: 1 oz / 30 mL·ITEM: 2579118

Color: Translucent Tone 3 - For deep to extra deep skin tones

635 Reviews


i liked the product, but it really wasn't worth the high price of 64 dollars. i didn't experience pilling like a lot of users of this product did, but it did leave my face feeling oily after a short period of time. also, I don't like that the pump only dispenses a small amount of product when using. i did like that the formula includes vitamin c and niacinamide, but I didn't like how (like most high-end sunscreens are on the market) isn't waterproof. lastly, I did enjoy that the tint actually had somewhat of an skin tone-evening property to it and the coverage is pretty decent for just a tinted sunscreen. ...This product worked well as a facial sunscreen. I burn easily, but hate putting non-facial sunscreens on my face.

What it is: A stabilized 10% Vitamin C serum with mineral SPF 40 for visibly brighter skin—available in three translucent tones to neutralize white cast without adding coverage.
