I tried this product after using one of the other sunscreens in the range since trialing it for Beauty Review. I work outdoors so a good sunscreen is mandatory. I loved the original Roche Posay I was using but this one is an improvement again as when I sweat (gross I know!) I don't end up with residue in my eyes that stings. The one thing that I am not 100% on is the tube it comes in. I find that the nozzle can sometimes get blocked up and even sticking a pin in it can take a while to clear it out. The sunscreen itself is a white cream that glides on and absorbs into the face easily. It doesn't have an over-powering scent to it like some sunscreens which is nice. It also works well under makeup. I reapply every 2-3 hours while I am at work and never get burnt while wearing it. I buy mine at the Chemist Warehouse so it is easy to find and not too badly priced for a skincare product of this quality.

If you take sun protection seriously and want a comfortable, non irritating product then this is the one for you. I LOVE this product. I am onto my 3rd tube. I have sensitive pale skin and I wear this almost every day. I originally tried this after reading a Consumer Magazine article that this has the highest levels of UVA/UVB protection (of the sunscreens they tested) available in NZ. I have combination skin so depending on the time of year I sometimes use La Roche Pasay's 'Matte Formula' of this same sunscreen - which is also excellent. I use this alone and also under makeup. It works really well under makeup. The packaging is great for the handbag and the beach.
Tips: If using under makeup, give it 5-10mins before applying your makeup.
Tried this as it was formulated for sensitive eyes and I'm so glad I did! I've never had any issues with products around my eye area apart from sunscreen. For some reason my eyes used to water from sunscreen application from multiple brands even when I avoided the eye area but this sunscreen doesn't irritate me at all no matter how close I get. I use this every day, even in the winter. Texture is great and easy to spread, and doesn't have white cast at all. Re-application throughout the day doesn't leave an oily looking layer on the skin. Love this product so much I stock up every time its on sale! My holy grail sunscreen!
