Good for winter, safe for acne-prone skin
I've been using this sunscreen daily for the past two months. My skin is acne-prone (and I use Differin gel to treat it), and I didn't notice any new breakouts with the use of this formula. I love the high SPF and the moisturizing ability of this cream, plus the fact that it has antioxidant vitamin E. While it goes on completely sheer, I would NOT describe the finish as "matte." It always looks shiny on my skin, even if I give it 15 minutes to sink in. While it looks good under makeup (I apply mineral powder makeup from a compact), I wouldn't wear this sunscreen if I were going bare-faced because it's just too shiny. For the summer, I'm planning to switch to a lighter formula because the warm weather makes my face even more oily. That said, I liked using this cream for the winter because it's so hydrating, and it also soothes redness and irritation.
