My favorite sunscreen of all time
from Brooklyn, NY
About Me Brand Buyer
Comments about HYDRALIGHT Shine-Free SPF 30 - 2 oz:
I use this sunscreen every day and I love it. It's safe for my acne- and rosacea-prone skin, layers seamlessly underneath powder makeup, provides the recommended minimum SPF 30, is mineral-based, and not tested on animals. It doesn't get any better for a daily sunscreen. I hope they never stop making it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Opal the Sunscreen Buyer

This has been my holy grail sunscreen for a year. It leaves my skin nourished and protected. It is also one of the only sunscreens that doesn't break me out or cause rashes (thanks to the fragrance-free, pure mineral formula). However, I do think it is pricy for 2 ounces, given that it goes by quickly with daily use and doesn't offer the most cosmetically elegant texture. It is a truly excellent product, but I will wait to repurchase until I have a 20% off coupon.

Love - great for oily skin
from Los Angeles
About Me Budget Buyer
I love this sunscreen and use it daily. It soaks in quickly, leaves no residue, and doesn't make me break out. I have oily/combo skin.

This moisturizer with SPF is only ok. It leaves a white cast on your face that you have to wait a few minutes for it to sink all the way into your face and you still look a little greasy/white. The SPF is good but I wouldn't get this again, I'll stick to my regular sunscreen moisturizer (Cetaphil).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

from Santa Fe
I have dry skin, so my initial foray into PC sun protection products was with the Skin Recovery line. For whatever reason, the Skin Recovery sunscreen did not have the same success for me that the Hydralight did. I do not use this alone - I use it over my CeraVe PM moisturizer, because I need some added moisture and the two work very well together. Even though my skin is dry, I find that super greasy sunscreens never soak in well, and result in bad makeup application and an oily t-zone. This sunscreen strikes a perfect balance between moisturizing and keeping a satin matte finish, which is a hard feat for any sunscreen. Honestly, I have yet to find a mineral sunscreen that absorbs and rubs in as well as this. I have sensitive skin, and this is gentle enough for everyday wear. I just ordered two more, I do not know if I could live without it! While it isn't convenient to use a light moisturizer underneath, I do not mind the extra step, since this sunscreen has a stellar finishing/primer effect. Looks great under powder and liquid foundation. PS: I'm a skincare junkie, so I've tried A LOT of sunscreens.

Great for Sensitive Skin
By Hello Katie
I have very very VERY sensitive skin. I tried SO MANY moisturizers with SPF (including high-end brands), and they ALL made me break out. Until I found THIS ONE, that is. Finally, my face is protected from the horrible sun and my skin isn't mad at me. I have combination skin, and this isn't moisturizing enough for the dry bits, so I use a heavier cream under it in certain areas. The smell is weird - it's a little like toothpaste. But it goes away quickly, as does the faint whitish cast. Two very small cons that I'm totally willing to deal with in exchange for SPF protection for my insanely sensitive skin.

Sample vs. Sample
from St. Louis, MO
I have the Resist Trial Kit for Wrinkles + Breakouts which had a moisturizer + SPF sample which I have used for the past couple of days, and compared to this moisturizer + SPF, this is better--for me at least. While it did leave a white cast, it's not as severe as past sunscreen with zinc in it. After it dried, my face felt very soft and powdery! I did not notice a smell. The white cast doesn't put me off as I've noticed it works better for me as I'm fair skinned--sunscreen without doesn't do as good of a job.
My favorite sunscreen!
By Gwen the Golfer
from Henderson, NV
I use this sunscreen every morning! It is light and non greasy.(I have oily skin) I also use it for evening as well, because it is a great primer for foundation. I golf a a lot and my face has never gotten a sunburn! I like the fact that it is also benefiting my skin other than sun protection with the anti-oxidants. The small container is great for traveling. I do see the white(zinc-oxide) when I apply it, but it quickly disappears.

Nice moisturizer but didn't sit well under makeup
I bought this to replace my EltaMD clear 46. I wanted a moisturizer that would be hydrating and sit better under make-up. I had high hopes for this one but it balled and pilled under my make up. Really disappointing.

Great daily sunscreen!
As with any sunscreen, you need to reapply in the sun, water, and sports. I love that this is a mineral block, and I think the product applies well, it does need to be blended more than a chemical sunscreen but it does easily. I have been using daily for about two years with no reactions. Great product, wish they had the exact formula in a bigger bottle for the body!
