I usually have a hard time finding a sunscreen that I don't have an allergic reaction to, never mind one that also provides UVA protection, aka "broad spectrum".

Thankfully, my skin didn't mind this product. I think I'm allergic to avobenzone (which is found EVERYWHERE), while the active ingredients here are octinoxate, Tinosorb M, and Tinosorb S. A number of physical sunscreen do not use avobenzone, but I've yet to find one that does not cause a white cast.

Pros:
- Blends well (I have medium-tan skintone, so the slightest bit of white cast will always become apparent)
- Does not contain avobenzone
- Easy to apply; definitely on the lighter side, but not runny

Con:
- Not matte

Overall, the pros outweigh the con, and I'll gladly accept some shine for better-looking skin 10 years down the road.
