It was sent to me for free and I have used it a few times now during days out in the sun — it’s perfect for what I’d want in a facial sunscreen, feels like there’s nothing there. I do wish, however, that some of the ingredients were more eco friendly....I LOVE SPF that doesn’t feel like a sunscreen. This one does the job and feels good underneath makeup!

Not tan skin friendly. Not oily, nice texture, plays well as primer under foundation, but ghostly when worn on its own. ...not dry skin friendly...It works well to cover my redness but this is not dry skin friendly. I have to almost make my face greasy with moisturizing products first to keep my skin from looking dried and cakey after putting this stuff on and I only use the smallest dab spread all over.

If you’re finding it doesn’t work for you, save it for a sunny vacation and use the Shiseido Urban Environment sunscreens.

The only sunscreen I'll ever use.... - Oily texture: I agree, the texture can be off-putting. Most sunscreen are more creamy in texture. Personally, I think the texture of this particular sunscreen prevents the dreaded pilling that most heavier sunscreens cause. ...One bottle lasts me anywhere from 2-4 months depending on if I remember to put it on once a day 2) there is no white cast on my skin for me, for reference i am about shade 330 in the fenty foundation 3) barely even smells anything like sunscreen! it actually smells somewhat nice :) 4) hardly any stinging at the end of the day, there is a little bit which tbh is expected with any sunscreen, but its definitely better than any neutrogena or la roche posay sunscreen i've used in terms of stinging Bad: 1) It is dewy/radiant finish, when you first put it on it comes off as very dewy but after a couple hours it just looks radiant, personally i'm more of a matte person but matte sunscreens imo are too expensive for a small amount of product which doesn't last me a long time 2) you do have to shake the bottle for a minute or so before using, I find this helps it glide on better Tips: 1) using a facial spray can help if it starts to pill, i find a lot of sunscreens pill in general so spraying something to rub this in can help the pilling especially if you're wearing a mask!
