Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ghostly white cast I was SO excited to receive this sunscreen for testing, as I’m still looking for my holy grail. Unfortunately, this is the opposite. Though Cetaphil is affordable and easily accessible, I can’t imagine who this would work on. The sunscreen turns a bright white that doesn’t completely rub out. It looks and feels like Wite-Out drying on my skin. I have a golden/neutral undertone on my face and this turns me a ghostly, pale pink. I’ll try to use this on my body, but sadly this is one of the worst sunscreens I’ve tried because of the white cast, and I can’t imagine how awful an experience it would be for someone with a darker complexion than I.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!! Gave me a rash!!! This is the worst sunscreen of my life. I am shocked, embarrassed, and feel ugly as a result after getting a rash from this sunscreen. It has ruined my vacation. I used before on my face with no issues other than a terrible white cast. I then used it on vacation on my arms and one leg thinking I can rub it in and the white cast wouldn’t be bad. When I realized I was wrong I tried to wash it off. A few hours later I had a rash that spread to my back under arms , chest and hands. I have never experienced this and would not have expected this to happen from a sunscreen formulated for sensitive skin and backed by the eczema association.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe they chose the "Sheer" name on opposite day? *I received this product free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review*. I tried out the Cetaphil Sheer Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen, and I have to say...I don't think they know the meaning of the word "sheer". Like, there is NOTHING sheer about this sunscreen. NOTHINGGGGG. I applied it to my face expecting sheer coverage and was quickly horrified when I looked like a ghost and couldn't get the white cast to go away with any amount of rubbing/massaging in. Verdict: take it back to the lab and start over/don't waste your money. Someone needs to buy them a dictionary or explain to them what "sheer" means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cetaphil Sheer Mineral Sunscreen I have always love Cetaphil since I was a teen and started doing my skin care thats why ‘m so glad to receive this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes!! I love how the product is lightweight when you apply it on your skin, not sticky and it easily glides! Doesn’t leave a white color on your skin (it will ofcourse when you first apply it) but few minutes later, the product will absorb into your skin. Great for face under makeup too! I tried to use it to try it out, although it’s still winter here in Washington, I can’t wait to use it on summer days! Very perfect. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sunscreen for your skin I have semi sensitive skin that’s acne prone and most sunblocks break me out so I tend to stay away from them on my face. This sunblock is my go to daily facial sunscreen and it works fantastic. It doesn’t leave my face oily, there are no breakouts, and I know that I’m taking care of my skin long-term. The only downside, which isn’t a deal breaker, is that it doesn’t absorb super quick so you either keep rubbing it in until the white cream can’t be seen on your skin, or apply it and do other things for a couple of minutes while it disappears into the skin. But it’s totally worth it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! I got this complimentary to test and review. I’m not a huge fan of sunscreens, but this one I was kind of excited to try out because I don’t normally use mineral sunscreen and it seems like this product is more affordable than some of the others I’ve tried. It goes on really easy and doesn’t leave a weird greasy layer over my face. It also doesn’t mess with how my makeup goes on if I put it on before my makeup. I would recommend this product to people who like using sunscreen. It seems to actually do it’s job without making me break out like crazy, so I give it two thumbs up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy unless you want to look like a mime I have loved Cetaphil products for years, so I was excited to try this. However, it is the thickest and whitest sunscreen ever. It should not be called “sheer.” I unfortunately had to throw it away. Wish I could get my money back. It took FOREVER to blend and never really fully blended into my skin. The white cast was so bad, my skin looked purple

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Non sticky sunscreen! I haven’t really had the chance to go out in the sun and see how it protects me from its rays being it’s winter. I did test a swatch in the back of my hand and noticed that there was not an overwhelming smell of sunscreen. I also noticed that there was a slight white cast even after rubbing it in. One of the nicest things about this sunscreen is that I didn’t find it was sticky or glossy. There was a slight shine but it felt more as if you were putting lotion on as opposed to standard sunscreen. Hopefully I can update this review when I get the chance to be in the sun!
