Although I find this a little expensive, it really protects from sun, and I haven't had a single pimple or other reaction like I have had with chemical sunscreens. The whiteness fades quickly and is not an issue. I have also seen a slight reduction in the crepe-iness of my skin, and since this is the only product I use religiously, it must be this. I am 42, and will continue to "treat" myself to this.

Nice texture for my combo skin. Not greasy; not dry. It leaves a little white cast but not too obvious. Very good for daily use.
My skin type is slightly dry to dry and very sensitive. I live in a humid climate and my skin gets more normal in the summer, but I need to avoid oily products. This is an oily product (my face looked very shiny) and although the zinc oxide is micronized, it still leaves a strong white film on your skin (I'm fair-skinned) and you have to wait a while for it to disappear. This sunscreen also made my face red and pimply. I have since learned that any chemical sunscreen, like avobenzone or parsol 1789, makes my skin look sunburned. This sunscreen has octinoxate and retinyl palmitate---two ingredients that I know that causes my skin to be red and pimply. My advice? Know what ingredients you can use and what you should avoid. I give 1 1/2 smiles because the SPF is high and there are antioxidants in the sunscreen. At least Citrix is trying.
Pros: - less white than the non micronized ZnO2 sunscreens unless you put too much and it becomes obvious - non irritable even around the eyes Cons: - shiny, need mattifier on top - concentration of Q10 and the antioxidants after it in the list is vanishing: a product with 0.5% Q10 (the necessary concentration) should look slightly yellow which is not the case here ...
It is not as white as the non micronized ZnO2 sunscreens - it gives me pale look, a little tint would help cancel out that completely. The suncreen is not very shiny yet not totally matte and needs mattifier on top. If this sunscreen contained the effective concentration of Q10 it should be slightly yellow which it is not. The other antioxidants are even less, do not buy it based on that.
This is the best facial sunscreen I have ever used. It makes my skin radiant, and I don't even need makeup when I use it. I look healthy, my complexion looks even, too!
This is the best sunscreen I've ever used! Not greasy, very light. Recommended by my dermatologist. I highly recommend it for people with acne prone skin.
