I wear sunblock everyday. I bought this because its a really good brand, my dermatologist recommends it and it said it was invisible zinc. Well Im probably about the same color as Tyra Banks and this stuff made me look like I escaped the morgue. There is only so much rubbing in you can do before it dries and my husband said "Whats wrong with your face" - always a lovely thing to say to your wife by the way. I looked in the mirror and sure enough I had white flaky smudgy bits all over.
I had been using a chemical sun screen for daily use but was unhappy with how my face seemed to burn a little after applying and I felt like freckles on my face were increasing in number and darkness. After much research, I chose this sunscreen because it gets an okay rating on GoodGuide and other reviewers said it didn't leave much of a white film. I've been using it daily for a month and am happy with it. PROS: my skin is looking much better and I think this is giving me much better sun protection; there's no noticeable smell to the product, good or bad; applying it is pretty easy, I do have to be careful to rub it in otherwise you can see a light white film, especially around the eyebrows and hairline but with a little more rubbing it disappears; and it's very lightweight and doesn't feel greasy throughout the day (I apply it over a moisturizer). The onky CON is that the first few weeks I seemed to get more pimples and blackheads, but that seems to have evened out.
Before I was on retinoids, finding the right sunscreen was as easy as going to my local pharmacy and picking up some Neutrogena while passing one too many time through the snack isle. After my first few days on the prescription however, my life became a leprosy rollercoaster to the pits of holy burning hell. I became afraid of sunscreen and began contemplating ever leaving my house, in fear of sun damage and scarring children. Thankfully, after reading countless reviews I figured out that chemical sunscreen was simply no longer an option, I soon realized it was time to get physical. I can wholeheartedly say Cerave destroyed the awful memories of my previous encounter, blessing my skin with moisture, protection, and soothing properties. Truly the only sunscreen that doesn't set fire to my face on contact, combine that with its beautiful mix of cell communicating ingredients that protect my skin barrier, while simultaneously leaving me extra money to continue preying on the ice cream...
