I like how light this spf feels under my makeup or by itself. It doesn't feel tacky or thick. I've worn this while hiking and there was great coverage without stickiness.

I've been using Elta UV Clear Spf 46 for years, as recommended by my dermatologist, because it does not cause any breakouts. It's lightweight and unscented and goes well under makeup. It doesn't feel greasy so it's good if you live in a humid environment. I gave this product a 4-star rating because I don't feel it's a good defense against harmful sun rays for a prolonged period of time. It's a great daily sunscreen if I'm just traveling from indoors to my car, but if I'm going to be outside for a long time (i.e. hiking, jogging, sight seeing, walking around the zoo), whether I'll be sweating or not, I use a sports sunscreen instead.

This has been the best I have ever used!! Go on very light and dries in quickly. So good for me as I have sensitive skin and rosacea and this product covers both. Would highly recommend it!!

I have been able to quit using prescription medication for my rosacea since I began using this on my face daily.

I've been using this everyday on my face for a while now and absolutely love it. I have sensitive skin and most sunscreens eventually cause breakouts or some kind of reaction - not elta MD. It has 9% transparent zinc oxide - and when they claim transparent, they mean it. No leftover chalky film or residue. I use this after my moisturizer and before my makeup. It's effective and not loaded with chemicals that are harmful to my skin. I've tried dozens of different sun screens over the years and none compare to this. Love it!

I have been using sunscreen rigorously for the last 20+ years and nothing has rivaled elta md. It's oil free but it's not drying or heavy. Light, creamy, well absorbed. LOVE IT!

I love this product. Before using it I had a few pimples on my face since using it I have no breakouts. And I love the fact that it's not greasy, lightweight, and has no fragrance to it

Best sunscreen ever not greasy and no smell to it what so ever

This is the best sunscreen I've ever used. It leaves no white residue on my face. Very lightweight.

I am winnning a fight against melasma. I am very careful with sun protection. This sunscreen is light, non comedogenic and does not leave a white cast. It can be worn under makeup and is not sticky. I wore it to Coney Island in 90 degree cloudless weather. I came home with NO TAN !!!!! My shoulders, neck and face survived the sun. I will repurchase, I will recommend and I have reviewed.

Highly recommended. Great on my acne prone and sensitive skin. Lightweight texture yet powerful SPF protection. Will never be without it. Only wish it was not so expensive.

Love this product! It goes on smooth and light. I burn easily and am well protected wearing this - MUST HAVE! I wear it daily. I was previously a user of Skinceuticals Broad Spectrum SPF 50 which also is a good product and works but this is a bit smoother and smells better.

I have been using this sunscreen for 2 years and recommend it to everyone! It doesn't cause breakouts or burn my eyes. I apply right after washing my face in the morning and then mix some in with my make-up, followed by a mineral powder.

This is hands down my favorite sunscreen! I have tried so many options from drugstore to "medical grade." Although it isn't 100% a mineral sunscreen, I didn't find this irritating to my face at all. I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts, but I didn't get any new acne flare-ups from using this product. It is moisturizing enough for me to use as a moisturizer as well. So I don't need to layer anything underneath it (other than my vitamin C serum). It does leave a slight white cast on my skin as I am very tan, but the cast goes away after ~15 minutes. It also leaves me with a bit of a shine but I can alleviate this problem using a translucent powder. Other than these issues, the price is extremely high for a sunscreen that only lasts about a month with daily use. I wish it wasn't so expensive! But it really is an excellent sunscreen so if you can afford it...go for it!
