I got this for my husband who needs to wear a high SPF sunscreen. We both prefer the mineral type but in high levels, it leaves a white “mask” effect. This does, too, but not to the degree other brands we’ve tried. It’s also not too greasy and absorbs well after a 10-15 minutes. At that point, if you blend it in some more, the white cast is almost invisible.
I have been using this sunscreen for a couple of years, and it is worth every penny. I find that it performs VERY well under makeup. I have very burn-prone skin, and many sunscreens aren’t as effective on me for whatever reason. I am concerned with protecting against damage, and I feel like this product has worked so much well than a moisturizer with sunscreen. LRP feels very nice going on, but you do have to wait about a minute before you apply any moisturizer, primer or foundation. It doesn’t get oily or cause the makeup to separate during the day like some oily sunscreens/primers can. I am shocked that the reviews here seem to be so split, because this really is a holy grail product for me.
Sticky, whitish… expensive, dos not protect well
I g0t it in wallgreens for something around $30, becasue it says on the box NON-WHITENING, and light, well…it is quite light, lighter than other titanium dioxide SPFs, but it is WHITE, and I put it on int he car, and did not look in the mirror….. so was walking around white like a death….and the most upsetting thing – it does not SPF well….dark spots have appeared even after walking under the fall sunlight…:(
