I have been using this product for at least five years. I originally used a different Elta sunscreen, but switched to this and the UV Shield because they rate better on Environmental Working Group. The tint in this looks like a light to medium foundation, but goes on very sheer and on the lighter side. I occasionally use just this when I don't want or need full coverage makeup.

This is my favorite product! I use it every day in place of foundation. The coverage is light, but just enough tint to even skin tone. It doesn't get on my clothes and keeps my face from burning without constant reapplying.

I have tried many and this one is the best - lightweight yet effective, no residue, slight tine if you'd rather not wear any foundation!

I love this product because it doesn't feel like sunscreen and it has a slight tint that provides a more even skin tone. One of my favorite products that I use on my face!

This is honestly one of the best physical sunscreens on the market. It is light and dries to a matte finish.

I am on my third tube.....it feels very light on the face and you can reapply throughout the day without feeling like the product is clogging the pores. Perfect for the summer. The tinted color also spreads nicely and looks very natural.

I love this sunscreen. Complete protection and I like the slight tint. I wear it on my neck, chest and arms. Transfer to clothing is minimal to nonexistent. Will repurchase.

My aesthetician recommended this and I have used it for three years. Living in the southern part of the USA brings LOTS of warmth and sun to all of us. Elta MD does a great job of blocking sun-made spots and wrinkles. My friends and I even recommend it to our elementary school girlfriends :-)

So far, this is the best sunscreen I have ever had - I've tried many but this is lightweight, no white residue and has a nice light tint.

I've gone through 3 or 4 tubes of this sunscreen as it is a staple in my skin care arsenal. It is one of my all time favorites. It does come lightly tinted, in a shade that happens to work well for me. I often use this on my no-make days and it evens out my skin tone. That may not work for everyone. I especially appreciate that Elta MD is well rated by the EWG. In recent years, I've become increasingly mindful of the toxins in products and Elta is more human-friendly than many other brands out there. They have many wonderful suncare products. So if you try this and decide the tint isn't for you, definitely give one of their other products a try!

It's a good sun block with light tint. I like it very much.

The sunscreen feels amazing on the face...add a large hat & I can enjoy the outdoors. Elta MD products are the "Go To" products for my dermatologist & now for me too!!!

This sunscreen is very lightweight and feels amazing on your skin. The light tint is great - it hides skin imperfections so you don't have to wear make-up over it if you don't want to, but also works great under make-up. This product does not leave my skin greasy like most other SPF products. Perfect to wear everyday.

My dermatologist gave me a number of different samples of sunscreen and this one was the best. This is a great product. It goes on smoothly and is tinted just enough where I don't have to always wear makeup. I have had no break-outs or skin irritations. The price is very good.

This will last you forever! The color blends well with several skin tones. I use it in place of foundation and love it. I haven't got any sun damage since using it. Love all Elta MD products that I have tried!

I have sensitive skin that is fairly light in color. I tend to get pink often and have also been diagnosed with rosacea. This product has been excellent for my skin. Best of all, it doesn't sting or irritate like some similar products. Although it looks a little orange coming out of the tube, it seems to disappear once it's applied - while still providing a small amount of camouflage for skin imperfections. I find it to be lightweight but I'm able to use it I place of a moisturizer in summer. I love, love this product it and use it year round.

Love the way this makes my skin feel and the protection is awesome. No burns and does not clog my highly sensitive skin!

Great SPF coverage and has the perfect tint. It gives you a nice healthy glow and looks so natural. I have sensitive skin and this product does not irritate my skin at all.

I received a sample of this product from SkinCareRX, the kitten's mittens of skin care products. I had applied a different, new SPF 50 sunscreen over my awesome moisturizer and had a stinging reaction. I washed it off and applied this sunscreen which, to my surprise, is tinted. It helped reduce the stinging and, another surprise, somehow managed to strongly resemble a slightly matte version of my natural skin tone, which is Norwegian fair. Maybe the tint and zinc oxide cast balanced itself with the tint for the surprising finish...who knows. But it helped me out in a fix and did pleasantly interesting things.

This is by far the best sunscreen on the market. Just spent 2 weeks in Maui with no sunburn! Great tint if you don't want to wear foundation.
