Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.Thick but drying, go on smoothly until pill like crazy. Working with this suncreen is a 'game' every morning. It's a physical suncreen with no tint so white cast is expected. But when I'm lucky and once in the few moon it's cooperate, it left behind sheeny glowy skin.This is a lovely product with great ingredients. It has a thicker consistency than some of the other daytime moisturisers. It certainly leaves a glow which may not be liked by everyone as it can seem somewhat shiny! The fact that it's tinted means that the traditional white cast is not visible.Generaly I don't like mineral SPF but this one is really pleasant to use, doesn't fell heavy and doesn't enhance the appearance of pores and fine lines. The only downside is that I feel it slightly difficult to wash it off in the evening (I use Skin Balancing Cleanser) and I think that it is going to be too heavy in hot summer days... but I'll see, maybe with shine stopper it will work also in July and August.I just LOVE this product, and it gives you such a beautiful glow!Feels great when applied, not heavy at all nor white cast left. Subtle glow is really nice. Will buy again!
