It's no doubt an effective sunscreen! But I think it goes on too white and then your face has that white tint to it all day. So, I use this only when I'm working out. I prefer the physical fusion uv defense - the tinted one. It makes your skin so smooth, so much so that I don't wear foundation or anything after applying it (besides for a matte powder for my oily t-zone and, of course, a little blush and eyeliner)
I am going to try the matte version of the physical fusion and see how that might help my oily t-zone so i don't need to use so many blotting papers! Stay tuned...!
Hope this was helpful to some searching for that perfect product! Whichever way you go, skinceuticals is a great line and I don't think you can go wrong! (If you are not past 50, don't even consider the age Interrupter products though).

I use this sunscreen as a moisturizer as well. I absolutely love this product. I have extremely sensitive skin and this does double duty for me. I highly recommend this if you have sensitive, oily skin and need a product to protect as well as moisturize.

It doesn't leave a greasy sheen but you have to make sure to rub it all in.

So far I've been very pleased with Skinceuticals products. I meant to order the Fusion version (Tinted version of this sunscreen) which I received as a sample and loved, but ordered this in error. The texture of this product is wonderful, but it left a very white cast on my entire face (and I am fairly pale). My medium foundation and bronzer combo were unable to overshadow the white color. Not so much sheer at all.

I have been using this sheer sunscreen for two years and love they way it feels on my face. Not heavy.

I already use the tinted version of this sunscreen on my face and decided to buy the sheer for my neck because I didn't want the tint to get all over my clothes. This is a great sunscreen, goes on smoothly and cleanly and dries to a matte finish. Love it!!

This is the only sunscreen I will try cause I will use it for life :) it is very thin and light. Mixes well with tinted moisturizers (great with Revisions)

I like how light this sunblock is. It is a little white going on but it absorbs quickly. I think this is great for oily, combo skin. Definitely comes out easily and quickly so be careful! It doesn't make me feel greasy either.

This sunblock is the only one I have found that does not make my face shiny or break out. It does leave a white cast if you do not rub it in well.

I don't like a lot of chemicals in my skin care routine and that includes my sunscreen. I really like the ingredients and it works very well. You can look at me funny and I will break out, but not with this sunscreen. It goes on nicely and my makeup glides right on. This doesn't melt in hot weather and I've never gotten burned while using it. I highly recommend.

I have been using this product for over a year now. I love how it feels on my skin. If I perspire, it doesn't sting my eyes. The light tint allows me to wear it without makeup and I still have an allover, even color. This is a definite must have in my make-up bag.

Great sunscreen.... It works.

This is the best sunscreen! I started using it about a month ago, works great.

Now this is my go-to sun protection product. I love that it is easy to apply and it absorbs so well that I do not look ghastly white from the zinc oxide! Small enough bottle to pack into my purse for reapplication through the day, too. Really happy to find this product as I have tried quite a few zinc oxide products in an effort to stay away from the other sunscreen ingredients that have given me problems.

I could never have imagined a sunscreen that would offer purely physical uv protection AND look great on my skin and under make up. This is my holy grail facial sunscreen product and I could never imagine using anything else.

I have been using this since the beginning of the season and it is a wonderful product.
