Who’s it for?:

-People who don’t like white cast

– People with dry skin (this is moisturising)

-People who want a high SPF rating

Who wont like it?:

-People with oily skin (this had no oil-control for me and was extremely dewy to the point of making me look greasy)

-People whose eyes are sensitive to sun screen (this stung my eyes)

Texture:

-Absorbs very well into skin THAT IS DRY. I.e. my hand is dry so the sun screen soaks in very nicely, very little shine. Now if my hand was oily and I applied this sun screen – it would be glistening in the sun.

-Feels like milk/essence – very light.

It looks milky white when applied (before rubbing in). Comes out very light but doesn’t drip down my hand
After rubbing in – absolutely no white cast.

What I didn’t like: 

The stinging (when I rubbed my eyes / sweated, this stung – other sun screens have not done this for me).

The oiliness/greasiness (because I have oily skin)

The fragrance – this has a Ctirus-like scent.

Would I repurchase?: 

No BUT that is because this does not suit my skin type. Dry skins should like this. I really do like the fact that this didn’t give me white cast – appreciate it.
