Yes to weightless sun protection. Totally worth every penny and if they make a bigger size I will purchase it. This one is a great purse size!


Never thought a sunscreen would make it on my list of holy grail products, so this definitely surprised me. Product almost looks like lotion, though not as opaque, and when applied it sinks right into the skin. I usually go with a dewy makeup look, especially for summer, and this product gives the skin an immediately hydrated look. My favorite part is probably the scent -- it's really light and clean.


This is not a bad sunscreen at all. It’s thin, applies easily and leaves no white cast. Intriguingly it smells very like Hermes’ un jardin apres la mousson (melon and ginger, primarily) which is a great change from the usual sunscreen scents. This only doesn’t get full marks from me as it leaves a very oily finish on my skin which I need to powder down to look ok.


Very nice sunscreen! I've been using it for a couple months now. No greasy or oily feeling to my skin. It has a very light, smooth texture. Sinks right into the skin. It does leave the skin a bit dewy. I love it and love the protection. :)


I wanted to love this sunscreen, the scent is really wonderful, clean and pleasant, and the texture is so smooth. However I do find that I'm much greasier than normal when wearing this, so much so that I feel I need to wash my face midday (I have oily skin to begin with). I think maybe I could play around with some of my other skincare products and that would help with the greasiness. For the time being, I use this on my neck and chest.


Well the hype is real on this one. I seriously cannot believe this is a sunscreen! I really think you have to try it for yourself to see how good it is.


I finally decided to try this sunscreen after seeing some of the reviews and editorials and I do not regret it at all! So nice! It's light and goes on super easy and smooth. It doesn't feel oily or greasy or heavy. It feels almost like you have nothing on your face, which is quite amazing for sunscreen! I might have found my new favorite over my A'pieu Pure Block Sun Cream (which I also love, but I might love this more)!! I find that I do get a little greasy by the afternoon as I have combi skin but... Read more


Do you find that you get more greasy with this or with the A’pieu sun cream? I have the sun cream and am considering trying this too!


I find this much lighter in texture and consistency than A'Pieu. Almost like a gel. I get more greasy with the A'pieu Sun Cream but I still love my A'pieu sun cream. :) I would happily use both!


Thanks! I’ve placed an order for this and can’t wait to try it!


Yay! Can't wait to hear what you think about this sunscreen! :)


I've been using this for about 6 weeks and I LOVE it!


Just received mines today and tried it out. It feels so lightweight and not greasy. This isn’t like any standard sunscreen you can buy off the shelf. It’s more like a liquid gel moisturiser. And makes applying sunscreen really nice. It has a really light scent, a bit floral, and citrus? Can’t quite pinpoint it but I really like the smell. It isn’t overpowering. This sunscreen has changed the game. I’ve ordered a couple other brands to test out..and so far this is the top! Definitely try this out! I think if this ever goes on sale, I will buy... Read more


I've been using for 3-4 weeks and I love this sunscreen. I have sensitive skin and have had no issues at all. It wears very well under makeup. I plan to repurchase once empty.
