Does this make your face white-ish when you put it on like some sunblocks, or is it actually clear after application?

This sunblock does not color your face in any way. Actually, i intend to amend my review to say that it is fine to use on your face as long as you don’t put try to put makeup on top of it. When i applied my bobbi brown skin foundation spf 15 which is just a regular foundation, as its title says the suncreen – it’s hard to explain – but it coagulated into little spools & as i spread the foundation, it actually was wiping off the sunscreen. Now i use it on my neck, decollete, & arms.

Is it better to buy it on amazon or a doctor office?

I have not used the product that i ordered from amazon yet but i called eltamd and they told me that amazon is an authorized seller of their sunscreens but to make sure that the product is sold and shipped from amazon and not a third party seller. The prices are the same as at a doctors office but with prime it was just easier for me to get. The eltamd website has a list of online retailers and doctors that are authorized to sell their products.

My package purchased at the dermatologist’s, has a slightly different name for the 4th listed ingredient (nov 2017):

What ́s the difference between this and the eltamd uv daily spf 40, 48-gram 1.7 ounce? Price difference is $10.

The spf 46 has niacinimides (b3) which is a great anti aging ingredient. Although this is marketed towards those with sensitive skin, b3 can be irritating if used daily for some people. Unfortunately i am one on those people. It is a great ingredient, it has a lot of science behind it and appearantly it works well for some with sensitive skin, but not me. If you don’t have sensitive skin, go for it. It’s a great product. If you have sensitivity to niacinimides this may not be for you, choose the spf 40 that doesn’t have it. Another difference is the spf 46 clear is oil free and water resistant, spf 40 daily is not oil free or water resistant.

Is it spray? I like lotion which i can take out in palm and apply.

It is a lotion and not a spray. It goes on well. It is not apparent if worn alone on the face.

Can this product be used as a face primer for under make up?

It’s really thin so it does fully absorb when it dries. It doesn’t leave your face greasy or anything. I wouldn’t say that it replaces a primer (it doesn’t smooth the skin texture), but it is not greasy, so your makeup should stay in place. I use it under my foundation and concealer like normal. No issues.

Is this alcohol free?

The back says it is ‘fragrance-free, oil-free, paraben-free, sensitivity free, and noncomedogenic. It only lists 2 active ingredients which do not include alcohol, but i can not say for sure that it is alcohol free since it does not list all ingredients. It may have on the box, but i did not keep that.

Is this product waterproof?

I believe the product is water resistant, not waterproof. One could use it while swimming, then reapply it.

Is this a physical or a chemical sunscreen?

It contains 9% transparent zinc oxide which is a physical barrier. It is the lightest best zinc oxide preparation i have found. I wear it daily when the sun is out. I have recommended it both to women and men. Ewg rated it ‘moderate hazard’, but the other less hazardous products in general are much thicker and i don’t want to put them on my face.

Is this product waterproof?

It does not work if you go swimming but works when i sweat

Tested on animals

Since no one has answered definitively that this is not tested on animals and it doesn’t have anything on the bottle pictures….assuming it’s a no-go. Pass.

What are ingredients?

Active ingredients: zinc oxide 9%, octinoxate 7.5%. Info on bottle says it contains 5% high-purity niacinamide, 9% transparent micronized zinc oxide, fragrance free, oil free, paraben free, sensitivity free and noncomedigenic.

Is this water resistant?

Not terribly water resistant. Best for everyday use that doesn’t involve lots of physical activity.

Is this product natural/organic?

No it is not natural or organic but it does have natural ingredients. My dermatologist recommended to me and i love it. I wear it everyday.

Is it waterproof

No, it’s water resistance but they do have a sport line that is waterproof.

Need fragrance free please

There are no added fragrances. We do have this product in stock! Thank you!

Is it chemical sunscreen or physical sunscreen ?

Facial sunscreen. It is a white lotion which you apply with your hands. It drys clear. Active ingredients are: zinc oxide 9.0%, octinoxate 7.5%. These are the only two ingredients listed. On the front of the bottle it says, ‘for skin types prone to acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation.’ i’m not sure if i answered your question. My dermatologist recommended it & she uses it too. I use the body sunscreen too.

One of the best

I have a very sensitive facial skin that’s easily prone to eczema and pain if i use the wrong sunscreen. I’ve been on a long journey looking for the right sunscreen that (i) does not hurt my skin, (ii) does not cause breakouts, (iii) does not result in white cast when i reapply, and (iv) is not too oily. And after trying about 8 other sunscreen brands, i’ve decided to stick with this one. I’ve been using it for about a month and it’s not very harsh on my skin, nor does it cause white cast when i reapply it (at least on the second time. Haven’t tried reapplying more than that). It’s not too oily so doesn’t feel disgusting and i haven’t experienced any breakouts yet. It’s a little bit more expensive than other typical sunscreens you find online, but i’d say it’s worth it!

No greasy feel, no smell, moisturizing

This is the first sunscreen i’ve actually liked. I am particular about them, i don’t like the smell or feel of sunscreen and i hate when it clumps off throughout the day when you reapply it. This product is by far my favorite, no smell, no white streaks, doesn’t clump after reapplying or feel like you’re wearing it at all. I usually don’t wear makeup so i wear it as it. I did try it under makeup yesterday and it goes great, no clumping under a full face of makeup. Absolutely love it for everyday use!

I highly recommend for sensitive skin!!

My skin is so sensitive especially on my face!
This sunscreen was amazing. I applied it once on my face and arms before going to universal studios in florida. The sun is brutal… I was so scared, i left it in the car and i couldn’t reapply. 6 hours in the sun and not one line of sunburn on my face or arms. I am so pale and i burn in like 10 mins usually but not today!! This is amazing!!! Also my face did not breakout at all which is usually the case. This sunscreen just feels like a light moisturizer it isn’t oily either.

Works well, invisible, not allergic to it like other sunscreen

I was recommended this by a plastic surgeon, they gave me a free sample and i was surprised that i wasn’t allergic to it. Normally i can’t wear chemical sunscreen at all. No issues with this and i love that it soaks in and doesn’t look white. I also got my husband to use it and it has no sunscreen smell which i really hated about the neutrogena one he was using.

5Expert Score
Non greasy and effective

This lightweight sunscreen is so pleasant to use. I’ve been using it going for long walks in the florida sun and it is very effective. It disappears into my skin so i don’t look like a white-faced zombie, as i might with heavier sunscreens. I don’t think it claims to moisturize, but for me, it seems to do that while offering the necessary protection.

Formula has changed or this is not real elta md

The formula either has been changed or this is a w product.

I’ve been using this for about two years now and my most recent order this past week is totally different. It rubs off in these little peeled off pieces and it’s making my skin itch.

Doesn't irritate my skin

I have sensitive skin and have had a hard time finding a daily sunscreen that didn’t irritate my skin. Did some research and found this product. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and no rash. Yeah! I also suffer from melasma and live on an island, so sun protection for my skin is imperative. Happy so far. Thank you.

No burn, no problems!

I normally burn easily and have very sensitive skin. But, this is the 2nd time i’ve used this product in the tropics and i will never use anything else! No burns, no reactions, and my skin feels great.

What is up with these reviews

Extremely weird that so many negative reviews are shown for this. This is by far the best sunscreen i’ve used, ever. Spreads easily and has a nice matte finish, i can put it near my eyes and have no burn whatsoever. I have acne prone skin that’s darker and scarring is easily visible, i’ve never had any burning, peeling, or redness. Not sure what’s up with these reviews but don’t let them keep you from trying this out

Love this product

My dermatologist recommended. It works great for my acne probed skin. I like the tinted version too, wear it instead of makeup. Highly recommend.

Well worth the price if you have sensitive, acne prone skin

This is my second time purchasing this product and it has not disappointed. I have dry, acne prone skin and have reactions to chemical sunscreens. I usually apply a thin layer of differin restorative night moisturizer before applying this, since this product isn’t very moisturizing and can pill if you have dry skin. This product does not break me out. I was previously using cerave facial moisturizing lotion with spf 30, and that product tends to pill a lot. This product goes on more smoothly and looks way better on the skin than cerave. It is very pricey but for me, it is worth it. Be aware that if you use a mask after applying this product it will probably pill a bit, but the pilling is manageable and i am able to brush it away.

Leaves a cast

It’s a really good sunscreen but it leaves a cast on darker skin tones. However it’s great if you have acne prone skin

Get it now

This (western) sunscreen is the best. I usually don’t like american sunscreens but this doesn’t give me white cast, doesn’t burn my eyes no watery eyes and no peeling which usually happens to me when i use american sunscreens including la roche posay so if you’re struggling with all these please buy it right now this is og.

Good sunscreen for hormonal acne

I have severe hormonal acne, and it’s so hard to find a good sunscreen but this one is so good so far. It spreads very well, and doesn’t make my skin look oily. With other sunscreens my face would look so oily. If you have dry skin this sunscreen might not be for you. It doesn’t have a scent and it is fairly light. I’m too pale so i’m unsure if it has a white cast.

Love it

I seriously love this product so much. It glides on like a dream! No white cast with a very light creamy texture and absolutely no scent. I also love how it includes high purity niacinamide. Only reason for 4 stars is how unaffordable it is and i wish it was water resistant. But i really have not found anything else that is as comfortable to wear.

4Expert Score
Good but small white layer!

Its moisturizes good and protects the skin but you can see a small layer of white color but that can be gone after spreading evenly!

Very good sunscreen for skin.

Very good skin product, price wise little low quantity.

So far it's better than many others!

I’ve tried so many facial sunscreens. I’m on accutane and i also have rosacea, so i need something simple yet effective. I like that this washes off pretty easily. My skin can not handle harsh cleansing. This does leave somewhat of a white cast, but honestly, i tend to like a little white cast because it helps blend in the redness from my rosacea. At first i thought the product was pilling, until i realized it was dry skin and not the product. So, it does catch on dry skin, but this can be remedied with using the right moisturizer beforehand. I’ve also noticed that it helps to apply the product shortly after your moisturizer while it’s fresh on the skin instead of waiting. It does leave a little shine, but it’s not overly shiny and can be matted down with a little powder. If i could change one thing, i think i would like it to be a little more matte, but not at the risk of adding more silicones which tend to feel heavy. Although i’m not super in love with this product, it is one of the better ones i have tried, and i’ve tried a lot! Perhaps with continued use i will see the benefits and learn to love it more.

Works great, does not irritate eyes.

Love how easy it is to apply, and the amount that comes out of the pump is great for making sure you get your whole face, neck and ears. Minus one star because it does not sit well with my makeup application. Makes foundation separate around the chin and jaw area. I will still use this on no makeup days. Also, applied it on my husband and kids faces and it did not sting their eyes when they sweat.

Good for the most part

So the good news is this is the first sunscreen i’ve found that doesn’t break me put. It doesn’t smell, and it ends up blending in clear. I just hate how thick it is and it’s kind of hard to blend in. But i will continue to use this until i find something else that doesn’t break me out.
