Lightweight and Silky

4

This mineral sunscreen is lightweight and silky; it is instantly absorbed and does not leave cakey white marks. It also does not have a strong chemical smell like other sunscreens. The only setback is I wish it were available in a larger size.

White cast all over

2

The cream texture is lovely and it is lightweight....but it is super annoying the amount of white cast it leaves on my face. I have a light olive skin and I I just can't, I'm usually good with buying quality sunscreens but this one is just not it. I will leave it as a back up and buy another one. Sorry, not for me

Pros & Cons

3

One of the most easy to spread mineral sunscreens I've ever tried with a good amount of 'playtime' to work into skin before it sets/becomes a struggle to move around. Whilst it certainly leaves quite a residue on hands that you'll probably want to wash off after application, I don't feel it sitting on my face like you often can with mineral sunscreens so fairly lightweight in terms of feel. As someone with fairly picky skin, another plus is that it didn't clog my pores or break me out at all. Despite this however, it can appear very greasy on skin and this is coming from someone with dry skin. This is odd given the 'lightweight' feel, but it doesn't seem to dissipate or soak in throughout the day. In fact, I'd argue that coupled with your own natural sweat it looks worse as time goes on which makes re-application less than desirable. Definitely one for the cooler/low UV index days and probably best avoided in the heat. Even for me, two finger-lengths of the product (which is likely below the recommended amount) leaves me looking a little more sweaty than dewy. Finally, I'm a fitzpatrick type II and there's a definite tone-up effect in terms of the mineral cast. This does fade slightly after 15 minutes or so but I definitely wouldn't call this sheer for a majority of skin tones. I almost gave 4 stars as the actual texture compared to other mineral sunscreens is great... but on reflection it's far from perfect and not a very affordable option. The hunt for a holy grail sunscreen continues, but it's good to have this option available as a back-up.

Current favourite

I love this product. A little goes a long way and it feels very light on my skin and goes well under my makeup

New Favourite

5

This is quite possibly the best spf I’ve tried. I purchased this because my previous spf has been out of stock for a while and this had the closest ingredients I could find. It feels really lightweight and hydrating, it blends in so so easily and doesn't leave a white cast on my skin, however I am quite fair. My skin has felt and looked so smooth and clear since using it. Most sunscreens either make my skin feel dry and tight by the end of the day or pill up and peel after a few hours. I’m so pleasantly surprised by this and will be repurchasing

Not ideal for tanned skin

4

I love the ingredients of this spf as they are natural and clean. However I have tanned skin and this most definitely leaves a white cast. For that reason I gave it 4 stars

Worth it

5

I have dry combination skin. This sunscreen blends perfectly and has no white cast on my olive skin. Makeup applies beautifully on top as well.

Biossance Squalane and Zinc Sunscreen

5

After trying a lot of sunscreens for my face, this is definitely one of my favourites. Firstly it hasn't broken me out or irritated my sensitive skin and it applies evenly but you do need to work it into your skin to stop it leaving a cast. I have normal to combination skin with a fair to light complexion. I really enjoy using biossance products and would highly recommend.

Great sunscreen!

5

I've tried lots of sunscreens and this is the best one. Its lightweight, rubs in well, doesn't leave a white cast and gives your skin a nice glow.

Fairly good

4

This is a bit too heavy for my oily t zone skin but for winter it’s ok.  It leaves a subtle white trace which disappears after a few moments (I have Indian olive skin). Love the  natural ingredients wish the packaging was  more sustainable. Overall happy with purchase but wouldn’t use it during summer.
