White cast, poor packaging

I really disliked this sunscreen. It is thick and hard to rub in and left a strong white cast. I have very fair skin and it was noticeable on me so this would terrible for anyone blessed with melanin. The tube nozzle is very small and with the product being so thick it was hard to squeeze out the product, particularly if your hands are a bit slippy at the end of your skincare routine. I’m normally a fan of Dr Dennis Gross skincare but this is a fail for me.

Dark spot sun defence

I bought this particular sun screen protection item in conjunction with various other products as part of a spacenk promotion. This particular Dr Dennis Gross product is just the right size to carry along with your other daily essentials. The cream dose seem to be a little heavy for my liking and I’ll probably mix it with my Chantecallie sun protection for a lighter finish.

Great protection

I got this after reading a lot of reviews and replaced my usual SPF with it after discovering the differences between mineral and chemical. This goes on well and sinks in well. My skin feels comfortable and non greasy or shiny. It does leave a slight white cast but not too noticeable when I've put BB cream on top. It offers amazing protection and I feel safe in the sun all day without needing to reapply (I do seek shade often though and don't sit in the sun so maybe if you sat in it, you might need more).

ok mineral sunscreen

Overall, it does the job as sunscreen. However, personally I think it does not provide more benefits than other sunscreens that are at the same or lower price point. First, I did not see any improvement on my pigmentary spots, and cannot say it actually prevented as I got the same increase over summer than when wearing other brands. Regarding application, it has a thick consistency, it must be applied very quickly because it is easy to get a white cast, and I have found that it peels, specially if wearing makeup. I would not repurchase this product as I can't say it has extra benefits.

Best Use: Anti-Aging

Great everyday sunscreen

I have used this over the last month. It is quite thick, not at all runny, but it sinks in really well leaving a healthy glow if you are not wearing makeup. I have used it under makeup and it is a lovely base and never pilled. So highly recommended. Loved the packaging too, handy for a weekend away.

Best Use: Wrinkles, Anti-Pollution, Anti-Aging
