    "Although some people would think they are paying a lot for a bottle of sunscreen, they are actually INVESTING in the skin. Anyway, I have sensitive skin so this actually works for me as it doens't clog my pores because it is comedogenic. It also has some active ingredients. Wear this everyday, that's my best tip!"

    "I am all for what is organic and natural. I don't just look at the SPF of the sunscreen I am using but the actual ingredients used. I recommend this to people with oily skin as it is oil-free and won't give you a shiny look. If you have tried the niacinamide capsules of Elizabeth Arden, this works just like that but this is more affordable."

    "The SPF level of this sunscreen is really insane!! SPF 100 FTW! But the best thing about this is that it's really lightweight. It doesn't feel greasy or heavy when you layer a foundation on it. My freckles show up when it's too hot and this really help maintain a good skin texture."

    "I use this together with the Kiehl's midnight serum at night and use this sunblock cream by day when I am off to work or having my morning run. I just wish they have it in a smaller size for traveling. One of the best sunscreens ever! Thank you!"

    "This is a skincare product I swear by if you breakout a lot either because you have sensitive skin or the temperature is really humid in your country but yeah, it doesn't clog pores and the oatmeal ingredients makes all the difference. BTW I have eczema and it doesn't irritate me. "

    "It reminds me of the brand cetaphil since this is also mild on skin. It smells clean like you know that you are not putting a lot of chemicals on your skin, especially on your face. I reapply this every after 40mins when I am out in the beach."

    "If you are looking for something affordable, go for this sunscreen. It is definitely a bang for the buck. I like the spray nozzle as it makes me control the amount of product that comes out of the bottle compared to the normal bottles of lotions. "

    "This works for both face and body for me. Okay, for the face, I use it as a primer because of its silicon-ey texture and consistency. I just have an issue when it's hot because the cream tends to be runny when it's hot. But, this is a mineral sunscreen so I love it!"
