Perfect for my sensitive skin
I have been looking for a good sunscreen for my very sensitive/rosacea skin ever since Dr. Hauschka discontinued their sunscreen line. I have tried most of the organic brands (including Erbaviva, which I also really like), but this is my absolute favorite. It is moisturizing, goes on smoothly, and even seems to have a calming effect on my skin.

Too heavy and slick for my purposes
I had really high hopes for this product but was sadly disappointed. It does provide good coverage, but it felt really heavy, shiny, and slick on my face. I really can’t stand that feeling, especially in the summer. I don’t have oily skin either. I am definitely a dry/combo girl. For me, I think it makes more sense to pair a lower spf (like Badger’s Facial Sunscreen) with a mineral foundation in the summer months. Also, definitely left a white cast to my pale skin. It isn’t scented, so that might appeal to some people with very sensitive skin.

Does the Job
It’s a good sunscreen but the price is too steep. I actually tried a sample of the Erbaviva SPF30 and I thought it beat JM hands down. Also, this one doesn’t smell nearly as good as the Erbaviva.

On the heavy side
This sunscreen has really great ingredients, and went on without leaving any whiteness, but I found that it was too heavy for my skin, which leans towards combination/oily/acne-prone. It will probably work great for someone with normal/dry skin.

I have been looking for an SPF moisturizer that doesn’t leave white streaks or an oily sheen for a long time. This sunscreen comes fairly close—it looks fine if I dab my face with a blotting sheet and apply translucent powder over it, but it’s still too greasy for my acne-prone skin.

A Must have!
The best anti-aging cream is a daily sunscreen – and this sunscreen is perfect. Not greasy, and doesn’t make you look white. There is no bad smell either. Perfect for under foundation or alone – I don’t go outside without putting this on first. I’m really particular about what I put on my face and this is perfect. wonderful ingredients and does not irritate. Highly recommended. As good as any non-natural sunscreen for face, but better because it is natural! Bottle lasts a long time too if you only use in face and neck.

Non-greasy, non-whitening, works under makeup
I’ve been looking for a long time for a mineral sunscreen that I could use on my face without looking greasy or ghostly – this is it. It doesn’t break me out, is fairly moisturizing, and is a nice base for makeup too. Great product.

The Perfect Sunscreen.
I will never bother with trying to find another sunscreen for my face. After trying all of the natural, mineral-based sunscreens, this is the only one that absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a white film on my skin. I have super-sensitive skin, and I can use this product without any problem. For extra sun protection, I will often layer with a mineral sunscreen foundation, and when I do it is the perfect layer for makeup. I hope I’m never without this product!

smooth and clear
I just bought this in my most recent order and it is amazing! It really does go on smooth without any white residue and graininess that a lot of natural sunscreens will do. great for every day! I would just suggest it for your face since it is such a small bottle.

The best daily sunscreen, period.
I am a firm believer in daily sunscreen, and that all the products one purchases are really just to undo the effects of sun damage. Therefore, I’m always looking for a nice daily sunscreen. Most organic/natural sunscreens make me look extremely pasty and chalky, but this one is amazing. That it provides SPF30 while being extremely light, absorbing and translucent – it’s really unbelievable. I think it would be a great sunscreen even if it weren’t natural, but since it is, that’s all the better. I will always have this product in my arsenal of skin care.
Provide all-over protection using this replenishing mineral sunscreen for all skin types.
