I have sensitive, combination skin and I’ve had zero issues with this product since I started using it. I also wouldn’t expect to it to be super moisturizing seeing as how it clearly says sunscreen on the bottle and is intended for normal to oily skin types.

Meredith Curry says:

I’m one with oily, acne prone skin and this product was awesome! I just purchased a more expensive product and don’t find it near as good as this one for me.

Having being just diagnosed with mild rosacea I tried this and it seems to make my skin worse some hours after application; needless to say I’m not sold on this product. Plus it’s incredibly expensive.

Paul Smallriver says:

Made my wife’s beautiful face red. Looks like bad sunburn and she says that is how it feels. “My face hurts!” She washed it several times and it still hurts. Nasty product. Waste of money.

So it doesn’t clog pores, right? Because I had bad experience with other sunscreens and moisturisers. So I can’t really trust any product that says non-comedogenic. Furthermore, my skin is oily and acne prone around my nose and my forehead. I don’t think I’m that sensitive because salicylic acid and tea tree oil didn’t break me out(however aloe Vera did:( okay fairly sensitive but not too much) do you think it’ll be a good idea to buy this one instead of Elta MD uv shield? Because I heard that uv shield sunscreen is less irritating. And what do you mean by sensitive? You mean very VERY sensitive or fairly sensitive?(cos every acne prone skin is sensitive) soz that my comment and questions are too long! Btw great review! Thanks! Keep up good work!!! 🙂 (P.s have you ever used La Roche posay sunscreen?)

bigbillyz says:

@smart wife Why don’t you recommend it for people with sensitive skin?

Debbie Sheegog says:

If you look at the reviews on Paula’s Choice, the clear Elta Md for SPF purposes was 5 stars , high and meaning in a good way, protection with ingredients recommended by doctors (believe me you DO want that), and did NOT appear white-ish, went on smooth and in a silky nature unlike some products with Zinc oxide, etc., so I may try it

TheSpecialOne says:

Is it a good choice for oily skin (mattifying)?
