    Very nice runny texture, leaves my skin feeling soft and glowy. Takes a few minutes to absorb into my skin and thereafter I add on my foundation. It works as a primer before makeup due to the tinted color. Works well for my dry skin as it moisturizes well. Does not pill and isn’t heavy.

    Gentle, all-mineral broad spectrum sunscreen.

    The tint doesn’t colour your face too much so it looks natural.

    If you have dry skin, you’ll find it too drying in winter, which is true of most mineral sunscreens since zinc oxide is a natural astringent and tends to absorb oil.

    But great for summer! PPD 24.

    Leaves skin smooth and glowy , evens out skin tone … lovely sunscreen !

  4. Salisha

    Great sunscreen, however, does leave a cast.

  5. Anri (verified owner)

    A very nice sunscreen with high protection and a light tint . Evens out your skin and spreads easy .

  6. Rishana (verified owner)

    I don’t use any make-up and the tint makes up for that. Love the texture and gives my skin great cover. Cannot go a day without it!

  7. Reinecke1 (verified owner)

    Very light and sheer. Light tint. A but runny so be careful when using for the first time as you can waste some, tip over gently. A little goes a long way

  8. Simone

    Used this every day since I received it . The light tint works well for days you do not wish to use makeup giving you a tinted glow and uv protection. It’s easy to apply formula glides right on unlike some leaving white streaks . This works well under makeup and is perfect for everyday use

  9. Janine (verified owner)

    I use sunscreen every single day , sun or no sun! So it’s such an integral part of my routine, I am very picky when it comes to sunscreens and have found my new favourite! The texture, formulation and the hint of colour is so perfectly suited to what I like in a sunscreen! Absolutely love the look of this even with no foundation or a BB or CC cream!

    Keep coming back to this sunscreen after trying nee releases. It doesn’t trigger any allergies. It doesn’t irritate. The smell is tolerable. And no white cast. Don’t know why I get distracted and try something else. When this is actually perfect. I really 3 / 4 times a day when outside and it still lasts quite a while. Definitely worth the investment.

  11. Charmaine (verified owner)

    A lightweight sunscreen with a very sheer tint. Blends well with a high spf. Suitable for my dry, sensitive skin. Does not pill or oxidise with other products which is perfect. I have purchased this sunscreen again.

  12. Razana (verified owner)

    It’s a lot runnier than I thought, and grainy on application
    It can get a bit drying on the skin under a mask ( being a healthcare worker wearing a N95 8 hours a day) but very sheer and light weight
    The grainy feeling does subside with application
    I really wanted to love it but prefer the heliocare gel cream
    Probably won’t purchase again for my skin type
    But would be better suited for anyone looking for a light weight sheer sunscreen. And stays all day. Doesn’t come off on my hands or mask through the day

  13. Anisa (verified owner)

    I have always been a bit frustrated with suncscreen as I hated the thick texture, white cast and the fact that it made my makeup look gross. Well hello SkinCeuticals.. this sunscreen like their other cult products is the best to me hands down! It’s super light with a slight tint which blends seamlessly into my skin. It has a high SPF 50 which has been a life send during hiking expeditions and living in a humid city like Durban. I love the nifty packaging too which means I can travel light with my beauty stash!

    The most versatile sunscreen! Hydrates without cloying my pores or leaving any ashy streaks. The universal tint is an added bonus, covering areas with mild uneven skin tone. Suitable for all seasons, effective and affordable.

    Husband uses this for cycling he loves it and so do I. This and La Roche are the our 2 main sun products our family uses now. This is perfect for every day and not too oily and not too drying.


    This is the best sunscreen inhabitants ever used. A bottle lasts me three months with daily use and does not leave my skin oily at all.
    The slight tint blends well into my skin tone and that is what I love the most, no blue or white caste left on my skin.
    It applies very very smooth and spreads easily
    This screen leaves skin with a nice glow and looks even better in pictures. It also gives me a great base on which to apply make up as it leaves skin so smooth.
