Ultra Sun Protection Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50+
Rated 1 out of 5 by Char7 from Women of color beware. Extreme white cast! I noticed that this hasn't really been touched on in the previous reviews so I figured I would mention it. I purchased this product a while back because I sweat profusely and I loved the idea of a product that actually works better when wet! I thought it would be the perfect sunscreen to wear underneath my makeup on those super hot summer days right? Wrong! The product left such an extreme white cast on my face that my foundation no longer matched my skin colour. I am not exaggerating. My skin colour is equivalent to the Rich Cocoa shade in Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation or approx. NW 47 form Mac cosmetics. Also, I want to add that it did not matter how much or how little of this product that I applied to my face. It left a grey film on my skin that could not be rubbed and blended in to my skin on the days that I did not wear makeup and also could not even be concealed by putting my regular foundation overtop! I am assuming that this may only be an issue for someone with darker skin tones, however, I would suggest getting a sample and trying it out on your face with and without your foundation overtop *before* investing in this product. I gave this product 1 star not because of the quality of the product. On the few instances that I did wear it before eventually giving it away (to my fairer skin toned friend who did not seem to experience the same problem), it did seem to stay on my face (or at least the white cast remained) throughout the day, sweat and humidity. I am giving 1 star because it is definitely not flattering on all skin tones and is virtually unwearable on my skin tone due to the prmininent white cast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hening from Like it not love it Bought this 2 days ago. Works great just like others reviews. The only thing is it looks very pale on my face.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TorontoSummer from I got it because of the reviews, It was a mistake I bought this not so inexpensive foundation with spf because of the raving reviews. First use I got a pimple or so and I thought meh maybe it’s something else. Second use was a month after and I got a rash around my lips and bumps. I thought it was lip dryness. Forward one week after and it’s use and my face was full of hives, pimples and redness. Like wtf happened. That’s the only thing I used that was new in my make up collection. So disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by krobertson from Beautiful Finish but doesn't last I have been testing out this product for over a month now and it has a beautiful finish. I love using my Beauty Blender to work the product into my skin to give it that nice natural, dewy look. The problem is I have combination to oily skin and the finish doesn't last on my skin. The high SPF is great especially when your out in the sun all day. I did receive this product complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hcho27 from A must-have! It is definitely pricey but totally worth it! This is definitely a must-have for saily use! The product is light and smoothly applies evenly with zero effort. It doesnt also smell as strong as other sun protecting lotion. This lotion in particular lasts long and does not leave sticky residue like mamy other brands! I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by teKay from Weightless and easy to apply This is my all time favourite sunscreen and the only one I use on my face. Using it daily is super easy because it's a thin fluid. I just drip a dime-sized amount on my palm, rub it between my palms, and press it on my face. It's weightless and the slight oiliness dries to a sheer dewy-ness in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jesssica from Awesome! This product delivered everything it promised and more. I recieved a complimentary sample from influenster and boy was I impressed. It was a good coverage BB cream as well as a sunscreen in one, making it very easy to touch up on the go. Overal I was pretty impressed with the quality!

Rated 2 out of 5 by zody from Greasy Feeling I purchased this product on the recommendation of the sales person in Shoppers Drug Mart. She dispenses a dab on my hand and I was most pleased with the silky feeling and the total lack of greasiness. When I got home and went to use it, I read the directions that stated shaking the container was necessary. The sales clerk didn't shake the container and that's probably why it felt so lovely on my skin. At home when I did as the instructions advised, the lotion spread easily on my face however it was so greasy. Here I sit 8 hours after applying it and my face is still greasy. I also don't think my skin likes this product all that much as I have had 'break outs' which I haven't had for decades. It was an expensive product so I will not throw it out but will use it once or twice a week at most. If one is fond of a greasy feel, then this product will be suitable. Also, not good under foundation. I was using the same face sunscreen for 9 years and thought it was time for a change. Nope! I'll go back to what I was using which worked just fine.
