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.

Didn't work
Sampled

It was nice and light, and it didn't cause me to breakout at all. However, I still got sunburnt with this on. So I will not be buying full size, or recommending it.

Great non-greasy sunscreen!
Sampled

I am usually very wary of trying any new sunscreens on my face as I have super sensitive skin and a lot of them tend to break me out (either with acne or a rash!). So far so good with this one! This sunscreen absorbs quickly to a matte finish and stayed on for hours while I was out in the sun. It is waterproof too. Will definitely use this again!

Sunscreen is a must!
Sampled

After application it is the perfect product. It doesn't leave a super oily feeling and I personally did not have a reaction (rash, acne, etc). Only reason I gave it one star less it that I need to shack and squish the container before use to mix serum, otherwise super runny.

Okay

It did it's job just fine - I just don't feel like it is any more effective than a much cheaper drugstore version.

Moisturizing!
Sampled

This product is not one I would have selected to try, but it was a great sample! It wasn’t tinted and glided on smoothly for me. It didn’t dry out my face either and was actually quite moisturizing. I put it on before going out all day to different events - at the end of the day, many people around me were all burnt up but I wasn’t one bit!

almost a priming texture
Sampled

Used it under my It Cosmetics CC cream just to be sure I didn't get any sunburn before heading to a festival last weekend. Loved the slip of the sunscreen, almost like a Smashbox primer and absolutely no sunscreen smell!!!

Nice formula, gotta rub it in good though
Sampled

This goes on very white, and you have to rub it in very thoroughly so you don’t look like a vampire. Otherwise the formula is nice and smooth, and it absorbs well into the skin without being greasy. Didn’t break me out like a lot of other spf lotions do.

Non-greasy sun protection
Sampled

Its not often that you find a product with this high of an SPF factor that doesn't feel like smearing on a greasy glue. This product glided on and absorbed within seconds. The matte finish did initially make my skin look a little dry, but I tend to get a little more oily in the summer months, so it actually helped keep things under control.
