Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like high end sunscreens This is a fantastic price point for an SPF 50 that performs this well. I hope Cetaphil can make a (lightly) tinted version of this too. This has just the right texture and finish on my skin, but leaves a slight white cast. I'm OK with that and wearing some light makeup over it works fine (not perfect, but good enough). I am a hardcore SPF-user and I would hesitate to recommend this to my family/friends who aren't because of the white cast. Otherwise, I would be telling everyone to get this. Works just as well or better than SPFs 3x the price. I will definitely purchase again, but will also keep buying from other brands as well for days when I need a tinted option for a more flawless look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but PLEASE make bigger size I love this spf. I’m a light/medium color with some tan but I wouldn’t recommend to anyone darker. It has some white cast but blends in after a few seconds. It’s great under makeup and not oily like most sunscreens. I’m just begging for Cetaphil to make the bottle BIGGER!! It is absurdly small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely AMAZING!!!!!!!! I have tried many zinc oxide sunscreens and they always leave a white cast on my face.. Not this one! This is the first all mineral sunscreen that I have tried that doesn’t leave a white cast at all. It’s also not thick and doesn’t pill. This will be a game changer in the skincare industry. Don’t EVER discontinue this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best mineral sunscreen for acne prone skin! Please Cetaphil never discontinue this product! I’m really picky with what I put onto my skin. My face skin is sensitive and acne prone. This sunscreen is NAFE SAFE (it has no denatured alcohol, no fragrance and no essential oils in the formula which can be irritating for the skin, like DrRattan would say). It’s simply the best face mineral sunscreen available!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING I’m on prescription retinoids and my skin is extremely sensitive/dry right now. I’ve been trying different sunscreens for weeks now & this is by far the best un-tinted one on the market (i haven’t tried the creams, but the LIQUID- omg!). It’s the only sunscreen I’ve tried that DOES NOT PILL and barely leaves a white cast. I love this and it makes sunscreen enjoyable for me to apply. In general, I have combination skin (dry but only oily on my forehead & nose) and it’s so hard to find a sunscreen that is moisturizing enough but doesn’t leave me oily throughout the day. The ingredients in this liquid version are spot on and I hope they NEVER change the formula. The only thing that would make this better is if it came in a bigger size. PLEASE make a tinted version of this!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absorbs quick! Leaves soft finish. Got a sample with my Allure beauty box... I am always looking for good sunscreen for my face… That aren’t too too too pricey. This is a good sunscreen and I would totally buy it when I run out of what I’m using now (if the price isn’t too crazy). But yes, it works good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stuff! This and your Daylong sunscreen are the only 2 sunscreens that don’t break me out and don’t irritate my skin. Also, they are the only mineral-based sunscreens that don’t suck all the moisture from my face. I’m really glad I can purchase this one now instead of having to order Daylong! This one wears well under makeup and does not irritate my eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love love love! For months I have been using so many different sunscreens trying to find one that won't burn/irritate my face, won't break me out and also won't leave an ashy white cast! THIS IS THE ONE also its SPF 50, mineral, and affordable?! Just wow! The wear of it feels nice like I'm not wearing sunscreen at all (very elegant in my opinion). I agree with most users/reviewers please do not discontinue. This brand doesn't disappoint for me. A suggestion though a bigger size would be nice at least 3 oz.
