Excellent for protection and sensitive skin -

I started using retin-A and I wanted to be serious about protecting my skin and preventing signs of aging. I was looking for a high Zinc sunscreen and this one has 17% (Dr. Bailey recommends at least 7%)! Since it's nano, the zinc does blend in pretty well (a lot better than say a 10% non-nano zinc sunscreen). I have medium-tan skin, so there is a white halo when I wear this, but it's easily covered with a light dusting of powder or foundation. The base of this sunscreen is really nice! It feels smooth on the skin, but I can tell that some oily skin types might not like it. I lean towards combination/dry, so I prefer heavier hydration. It leaves a light glow, dewy look under make-up, I dig it. I have had no issues with breakouts or stinging in the eyes. On to price, it's a little expensive, especially since it's recommended to use a teaspoon amount for the face/neck (that would be about 5-7 pumps). I skimp some and use about 3-4 pumps in the morning. But! I will continue to purchase and use year round and I think it's a wonderful product.
