Horrible! - 4/4/2012 4:13:02 PM This is NOTHING like the SPF15 with ecamsule! Like others, I purchased this because I love the Anthelios SPF 15 daily moisturizer, but I wanted higher SPF. This cream is cakey, chalky, crumbly, and white, and it never blends into my skin. It lightens the color of makeup, making me look ridiculous. Maybe a clown could use this instead of greasepaint.

Not suitable for normal or dry skin - 10/21/2010 9:03:48 PM I chose this product with a expectaion for effect of Meroxyl and I agreed that it was excellent component for screeing UVA. The only one reaseon that I gave up using this product was whitish cast. (Every time I applied it to face with fingers, it left a track along the finger movement). It seems that it is hard to use this suncreen without additional face foundation.

not worth it - 7/19/2010 7:53:50 PM I purchased this because it had mexoryl. But I would rather slather on someting less safe than finish this expensive tube of suncreen. The lotion is SO white and chalky that despite tanning all day I look like a mime melting in the sun. The lotion runs when you go in the water leaving stains on your skin that look like winter salt stains. It certainly keeps you from getting burnt, but you look ridiculous in the process. I tried it several times and I give up.
