Of course there's no perfect sunscreen, but this one is pretty good. Just a note, if you get this sunscreen now, you'll probably be getting the renewed 2019 version. It's PA++++, and it's not a thin white lotion, but a thin yellowish "colorless" lotion. If you get this sunscreen and are nervous it's gone off due to that, don't worry.


It wears very well ! I love use this one too


Unfortunately this sunscreen wasn't right for me. It has a watery texture similar to Biore's UV Aqua Rich Watery Gel, but it left my face looking & feeling super shiny/oily. I have combo skin, acne-prone skin (dry-ish cheeks, oily T-zone). It didn't break me out at all, but I just felt super uncomfortable with it on. You could absolutely counteract this by putting on a powder over it, but the price & amount you get doesn't make it worth it for me. I rather just keep searching for my perfect sunscreen.


I wanted to love this sunscreen, but don't. The scent is light and pleasant, no white cast, but unfortunately it left a high shine to my skin. I love a dewy look, but this left my skin looking very oily. I normally just use cover up on my trouble areas, nothing else, but after using this I had to blot my skin with a translucent setting powder. I love the donkey milk seaNtree donkey milk sunblock and will stick with that!


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!
