Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst sunscreen ever I rarely write reviews but I am so disappointed in this sunscreen. As others have said, it leaves a cakey white layer on your face. I used it for the first time when I met a group of new friends on an outing and I was really embarrassed by the white layer. It looked like halloween makeup. Then when I reapplied later, it got even worse. I can see Cetaphil's response to oher comments of this nature. I understand mineral sunscreen is typically white. The reason I bought this one is because it is called SHEER Mineral Sunscreen. The definition of sheer is "of very thin or transparent texture," which is complete misrepresentation of this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish i could like it since it's not cheap I see the comments on other reviews saying that it is a mineral sunscreen hence the thick white layer, but likewise to others, I also bought this because it had "sheer" in the name, which is pretty self explanatory. Needless to say I was very bummed, and embarrassed, when I applied even a small amount to my body (I put it all over) and I quickly appeared paler than I already am (I am a redhead). I am all for natural elements on my body and am aware this is a better choice than many other sunscreens, but I just can't get behind it if I am going to look like a ghost. Bummer because I use other Cetaphil products and like them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Workable for people with fair skin Definitely workable if you have fair skin. Apply evenly in a small area at a time because it dries up pretty quick. Layer it with a thin layer each time if need to. I definitely agree that this isn’t medium skin beyond friendly. I supposed they will come out with a tinted version (maybe?) if they want to be all inclusive. What is interesting is that most mineral sunscreen is greasy but this one is completely matte and will dry up to completely dry touch on the skin. I appreciate this in the summer as I have normal skin. Give it a try if you skin tone falls within the fair range (mine is probably in the more pigmented area within the fair range). It is workable, depends on how you use it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extreme white cast I got a sample of this in a beauty box and was excited to try it. I do prefer mineral sunscreens. Not having white cast is important to me, so I was glad to see it was sheer. I'll start with the positives: I like the texture of this. It's not too thick, not sticky. However, the white cast on this is so extreme that it's not wearable. I am fairly light skinned, usually wearing a fair/light. I couldn't rub the whiteness in. I waited for it to dry down. I tried to put a bb cream over it, but it was so white. I ended up having to wipe everything off and start over. I wouldn't even use this on my body, and, again, I am light skinned (Fenty 170).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this! I’m so happy that I received this from my VoxBox! Dermatologists have said that sunscreen is a very important step in everyone’s skincare routine. I even heard someone say that if you’re not using sunscreen your routine is almost pointless! I really love this sunscreen. I have very sensitive and dry skin and this product is actually formulated for sensitive skin. This doesn’t irritate my skin at all or make it look and feel oily compared to other sunscreens. Cetaphil is a very good and affordable brand, every product I’ve used from them I haven’t been disappointed in. I love the high SPF and that it is water resistant and fragrance free!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really wanted to like this product! I bought the Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 becuase I've liked other products and was wanting to use a trusted brand but I'm very unsatisfied. It leaves a think white layer on skin and no matter how much you rub it doesnt soak in. I see other reviews and they say to apply the moisturizer first....well I put on moisturizing lotion everyday and when you are out and trying to apply sunscreen you dont always have your lotion with you. So unless you plan to apply prior to leaving home and not need to re-apply then I would not recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Thick white cast I really wanted to like this product. This product is not good for people with darker skin. I have a medium skin tone and the white cast did not go away. The texture is pretty thick, which I liked for my dry skin but just can’t get past that white cast. Maybe if they made a tinted version I would try it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves white streaks every where. I wanted to try a new sunscreen for the face and neck. Picked this up since it's lightweight and for sensitive skin. Wish I hadn't. Product may seem light but it leaves white streaks everywhere and would not absorb. After I did my husband's face, he washed the product off since it was so streaky. I applied on my neck and it seemed to absorb but once in sunlight, everyone commented on the white streaks. Very disappointed on the outcome since Cetephil is a quality brand for face wash/moisturizer. If I could, I would exchange it for the sun stick and hope that one works better than this.
