MDSolarSciences™ Mineral Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 50 UVA-UVB Sunscreen

When it comes to choosing a daily sunscreen, it’s good to be picky—and this mineral-based SPF 50 formula checks all of our boxes. The hypoallergenic cream is safe for acne- and rosacea-prone skin, and it has a nongreasy, even silky, finish. It rubs in quickly and won’t turn your face white. Plus, it’s infused with the brand’s signature ProVention-R™ antioxidants, which have extra skin-repairing and antiaging benefits that help this sunscreen go further. Another reason to use it daily: It’s made without sulfates, parabens, phthalates, oxybenzone, octinoxate, aminobenzoic acid (PABA), gluten, or synthetic fragrance, and is never tested on animals.

Birchbox send me so many face moisturizers that I have a whole drawer full of them. This product wasn't awful but it was not impressive

Non-greasy but not great for acne-prone skin either!
Purchased

I had high hopes for this sunscreen. I used the anti-aging moisturizer with SPF from MDSolarSciences and really liked it but couldn't justify the price tag so I thought I would give the separate sunscreen a shot. It goes on pretty greasy at first but dries down to a matte finish and acts almost as a primer. Unfortunately, it's so full of silicone that my face felt suffocated and my skin broke out by the end of the day. My skin is combination, leaning toward oily most of the time. I'd guess this would be too drying if your skin tends to be dry. And if you're prone to breakouts, I'd advise avoiding this one.

No point

There is no point in this. It didn't help me skin at all and I'd not spend the money on full size.

I have to be cautious what I use for sunscreen on my face as I have super sensitive skin. My pores tend to get clogged by certain sunscreens. Have not tried this product yet.

Did Not Like
Sampled

I went to use this and had to try to shake it up because it was separating and a runny mess. Definitely not impressed!

Awful
Sampled

Left my skin feeling weird...not quire greasy but not quite dry. But the bad part was that it BURNED. I don't seem to have sensitive skin, but this cream left me red and uncomfortable. Tossed it.

I live in a place that the sun doesn't shine so bright if I lived some where I could use this and test it out

Strange formula
Sampled

I normally use oil free products specifically for acne prone skin. This is not one of those products. If you are like me and tend to get blemishes if you use overly oily or heavy makeup I would not recommend this product. It felt greasy and heavier That I usual like. I will not be buying this product or brand in the future.
