This is my favorite sunscreen to use. So light and never irritates my face.
I like the short ingredients list and that it works well on acne prone skin. It's expensive but it's a good spf
Great spf but be aware of pilling
This spf is great! It's glowly, hydrating, acne, sensitive and dry skin friendly. The protection is 46 could be 50 PA 4 plus which is best you can get but in my opinion 46 is still good. This spf can pill and has pilled on my skin when I use certain products, but I can't pin point which ones. Currently it is not pilling and given that it's the only western spf I've found that works for my acne sensitive dry skin I'll take it! I'm on my 3rd bottle and I love buying the the duo pack.
Excellent sunscreen for faces with sensitive skin
I have sensitive skin that breaks out easily with most sunscreens. I've tried most of the ones for faces so I have a good point to compare to. Elsa MD 46 has a nice consistency, not greasy feeling and does not "pill" like most sunscreens with zinc oxide. Feels smooth and doesn't leave a white cast. I can't believe how different it feels. Worth the money for this one if you want to protect your face and feel like you aren't wearing sunscreen!
Best price for my favorite sunscreen!
I've loved Elta MD UV Clear for years and was SO happy to see it was on sale as a two-pack. This sunscreen is lightweight, moisturizing and leaves your skin looking so radiant and healthy. It doesn't leave a white cast and sits beautifully under makeup. I'll be purchasing this forever as it doesn't aggravate my acne and if anything, helps my skin look clear!
