PREVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 Lotion
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennnnnnn from Improves look of skin AND has sun protection! I have a feeling this sunscreen is going to be love/hate for many people. If you're someone that touches your face a lot (you shouldn't!), you won't like this. There's a very slight tackiness to the touch. However, if you don't touch your face, it feels like you're not wearing anything. It's extremely light weight despite it's thick texture. It's a tinted sunscreen, which is good since it's mineral/physical-based. This has the added benefit of evening out your skin's complexion. That said, it's nothing like the tint I've encountered in other sun screens. It's almost a grey-brown, which you think wouldn't match anyone's skin tone. It just seems to end up cancelling out any potential white cast so that it's suitable for any skin tone (I'm a light-medium to medium, depending on time of year). I've noticed it's also pore refining. It has a fairly thick, silky texture which lends to hiding flaws in the skin. But, not only does it hide flaws, it doesn't create any more! I'm very prone to acne, especially with thick products, but even after all-day wear and day-to-day use, it's not caused me a single break out. The sunscreen is also fairly mattifying. I have extremely oily skin but after about 5 hours of wear there's only a small hint of shine on the nose. After about 10 hours the rest of my t-zone only has a slight amount of shine. I never thought I'd find something that works SO well in my entire life to control oil. I've tried so many things and this was a truly unexpected find. I wouldn't recommend this product if you have dry skin. This product is best suited for combo and oily skin types. I want to mention this for make-up lovers: between the mattifying and pore refining capabilities, and the slight tacky texture, it ends up being an excellent foundation base/primer. Although the sunscreen does already help to even out skin tone, some may still prefer an even more flawless finish using foundation and this sunscreen really helps to lock it in to place. Finally, the price point is worth talking about here. You get a very small amount of product for a very high price. Remember that, in order to get the stated SPF protection on the packaging, you need to use a generous amount to cover the face. Typically 1/4 tsp is recommended for most formulas. This is a fairly thick formula so you may end up using closer to 1/3tsp for healthy coverage on the face. As much as I love this product, and as much as it has done for me that literally no other SPF OR moisturizer has done, it's cost prohibitive to 99% of the population. Don't spend your money on it if you're having doubts about the budget. If you use sunscreen as recommended (generous application amounts, daily use) this bottle will only last about 4-5 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdarcelle from Glorious!! This sunscreen is amazing - hands down. You need to apply once for the whole day - even in hot climates! There is a tint which is excellent - I am quite fair and this worked excellent for me. It even shines a little, which is very pretty - I got compliments on my skin while wearing. Anything from the Prevage line is excellent and helps treat your skin. This sunscreen is no exception, your skin tone actually improves while wearing it! Highly Recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelley558 from Finally I've been using this for quite a long time. My search for a face sunscreen that does not sting my eyes is finally over. I've found even sunscreen products for children burns and stings my eyes for hours, while causing my eyes to water, and ruin my make up. Absolutely no irritation with this product. Combined with it's premium ingredients for added benefits, in my opinion it's worth the extra money

Rated 4 out of 5 by airandshadow from Great Sunscreen, Expensive for what you get I really enjoy using this tinted sunscreen, my skin tone is light to light medium with a slightly yellowish undertone, the sunscreen feels light on my face and not heavy at all, the only complaint I have is that it is only 40ml of product which does not last long if you use it daily
