It’s okay probably best for oily skin

I had high hopes for this but it leaves my skin feeling tight. I do have dry prone skin so it can be patchy and leaves a white cast around my hairline no matter what, I’ve started mixing it with rose hip oil to stop it looking cakey. I won’t be repurchasing.

Great coverage!

I found the Neostrata Sheer Physica Protection SPF50 to have a beautiful creamy texture and great coverage. It has a slight tint which means I didn't feel the need to wear makeup, perfect in the hot weather. I always feel well moisturised with this product. The only drawback for me was the matt finish. I prefer more of a glow. Having said that, I still would recommend it.

Leaves a white thick layer on skin

Product leaves a white coat on my face that does not fade, My friend also tested it on her skin and again it left a white coat, It made us look ill. I was really disappointed with this product and have to buy another spf for my face

Hi Anita,

Lovely sun screen

I had avoided tinted sunscreen for a long time because I don’t wear much makeup. I decided to give this a go and I love it! It goes on very easily and the tint is absolutely minimal. There’s no residue and it doesn’t sit heavily on my skin. I would definitely buy this again.

Best sunscreen I’ve ever used

This was the first time I’d tried this spf. The formula is incredibly sheer and glides on effortlessly. It is tinted so it blends really easily and isn’t chalky. This is a really good brand and I’ve tried their other products. I tend to be spotty and this spf didn’t exacerbate that
