Rubs off -5/29/2010 10:02:28 PM It is not true that the powder does not rub off; it does and it stains clothing.

Great product for a guy... -7/17/2009 9:57:15 PM This is a great sunscreen for those of us who don't want a shiny, greasy face (I find even the "ultrasheer" lotions are too shiny). It also helps absorb oil on my nose, and the slight tint helps even out discolorations and large pores. I thought it might exacerbate acne, but it hasn't. Recommended.

Best Sunscreen for Kids! -6/17/2009 12:18:05 AM I love this sunscreen! I was looking for a sunscreen that my daughters (3 and 5 at the time) could use by themselves and this is very easy to apply and it doesn't sting their eyes! They love the fact that it's a brush on - just like make-up! My older one brings it to school and reapplies before going to the playground. The packaging (brush) is great for her backpack or jacket pocket. Kids in her class ask to use her sunscreen all the time. I had a mom call me about the sunscreen because they can't get their daughter to reapply sunscreen at school. Once they got it, their daughter loved it and used it. It is a little pricey but if the girls use it, it is worth every penny and it last forever. They have never burned using this, even at a 5 hour pool party without reapplying! I bought them the Perfectly Clear Sparkle. It's the slightly tinted with sparkles. They love the sparkles and it lets me know that they've covered their entire face. Some reviewers complain about the shininess, make sure you didn't buy the "sparkle" one. I also use it over a daily moisturizer. I like the fact that it gives me a little color and the SPF is great! Again, I brushed it on before going to a pool party and we were in the sun for over 5 hours and I didn't get burned even though I didn't reapply. My back did get burned. I highly recommend this for kids. It's easy to use, portable, and they will use it! And isn't that what we want? What good is sunscreen, no matter how good or expensive, if they won't use it?

Best for oily skins -4/19/2009 8:43:19 PM The best sunscreen Ive ever used. I have pale, extremely oily/acne prone skin, it protects and even helps hide the blemishes and redness on my face without leaving a shiny, greasy and slick look on my face which all liquid sunscreens do. Love the handy brush dispenser, just brush on and your done. I even use it to set my mineral makeup for daytime. The only downside is its very expensive for a sunscreen and I also wish it didnt have Dimethicone and bismuth in it as it can sometimes cause my face to get more irriated if Im expirencing a dermatitis outbreak.

Super Sports Block!! -10/14/2008 10:57:02 AM We are a full time outdoor sports family.From ski races to swim meets, this block works wonders. It is the only block that my huge football star sons will tolerate. My freestyle skiers don't worry about the block getting crushed and leaking into their pockets.I like the fact that it doesn't bother my eyes during tennis matches, and I don't have to wash my hands after applying. One powder tube outlasts several bottles of lotion sunblock. From sea level to 14,000 feet, this veteran sports mom swears by it!

Fantastic -8/18/2008 12:46:15 PM I have perhaps found the perfect sun tan protection. I have oily skin and this not only gives me great sun protection but helps reduce the oily skin look. The greatest product I have bought so far from the Skin Store and overall a close second to sliced bread as a product. The only complaint is that the brush cleaner did not come with the product and I had difficulty ordering from the Skin Store web site.

Pasty skin! -2/15/2008 7:00:42 AM I was curious about this product, having tried Jane Iredale's version. I couldn't find the exact color for me in the latter, so I thought I'd give this a try in the trial size. I spend a lot of money maintaining that"glow" we all want, and even when I applied this ever so lightly and blended it with a brush or puff, I looked pasty and dry. Also, if you do apply it lightly, are you getting all the much needed sun protection? Glad I tried the trial size, and glad I tried it in the winter. I am sticking with my all time favorite - SkinCeuticals UV Defense 20. A little dab of that rubbed between the palms and pressed onto the face. I haven't had a sunburn in years with that, plus the skin looks and feels good while wearing it.
