Customer Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible for dry skin and very poor customer service I rarely leave reviews but I found this product completely unusable. I have some dry skin around my nose and this product clung to it and made it very obvious- it looked awful! I first bought the one with the tint and so I thought it was something to do with the pigment not working on me, so then I bought this one and it did the same thing. I then contacted customer service who advised me it was an adverse reaction (it wasn’t at all, I could see it just didn’t go on smoothly) and they’re making it very difficult to return it. I haven’t heard from them in over a week. I would say don’t buy this if you have any dry skin at all, especially because you can’t return if it turns out to not work on your skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely texture but a bit white on skin! I had the tinted fluid last year so thought I would try this version. The texture and coverage remain great, but my pale celtic skin gets a distinctly white look that lasts quite a long time :( Staying power, skin comfort and sun protection all great, but the white glow was quite unexpected. Time to buy another tinted bottle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, non-irritating sunscreen. I have very sensitive skin and this is one of the few sunscreens I don't react to. A little goes a long way, and leaves my skin calm and of course protected all day. Make up blends well over the top. The only downside I would point out is that it might not be hydrating enough for very dry skin. I recently had a week's holiday in Spain and this is the first time I used an SPF this high, but you can still tan with SPF 50.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves a VERY white layer on the skin Really disappointed with this product. It leaves the skin so white after use it can not be used without makeup. Not the best base for layering (mineral) make up on, which ends up looking really heavy even when it’s a light product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great texture but white on skin I have been using this for quite some time now and although the texture is great it does leave your skin White and needs makeup to cover this as it cannot be worn alone. Please fix this as it is a great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from White cast like Plaster of Paris I have no idea what tint the product is talking about. It is impossible the company will replace it for me so it has been a waste of money for me. It left such a white cast on my face, with even one single drop, refusing the get absorbed in the skin and I looked like a ghost. I literally have thrown the brand new bottle in the bin. Never buying online again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best face sunscreen ever After having a skin cancer removed from my face a few years ago, I searched high and low for a SPF50 face sunscreen and discovered this. It is by far the best sunscreen I've ever used especially as I have oily prone skin. You can put it on in the morning and top up at lunchtime and your skin still looks great and feels protected. I use all year round and don't even have to use foundation. Highly recommend it.
