I have acne-prone skin that breaks out w/ every sunscreen I've ever tried. I like this sunscreen better than any I've ever tried! I don't seem to break out nearly as much as before. This product is moisturizing so I need to powder a little more than w/out it. But it's not a greasy, shiny problem-just a little more moisture. I use this under foundation and it turns me a little pink. I use it w/ just a powder on top and all my imperfections show. But it's to the point where imperfect skin w/out a cakey foundation is preferable to the mask effect I get w/ foundation. Now if I could just find the foundation to wear over ithis product! The niacinamide really does seem to help clear up small pimples. I don't believe it would help w/ the cyst acne. Doesn't bother my very sensitive neck.
I'm allergic to many ingredients in face care and sun screens. This suncare is great. It does not leave a white or greasy appearance on my face. Same with my eyes without having any irritation. Normally some sun screens burn my eyes.
Very lightweight and effective against burning rays. will go back to elta shield though because elta clear rubbed off prior to make up use unlike shield did. also did not she one bit of improvement in my acne with this product.
