I have very fair and sensitive skin.

I no longer use a foundation as the tint on this helps to even my skin tone.

It feels nice and light and goes on smoothly.

I thought I would let others know that as of today (3/28/12), the ingredients in this newer formulation do not match those listed on the website. They have taken out the retinyl palmitate (probably because of the fears that it is a dangerous substance in sunscreens, though I don't think there is a definitive consensus on that). But at least for me, this formulation is very drying to my skin, and, as others have mentioned, a bit hard to get off. I used it on my kids for a week and I could see their skin get drier and take on an "ashy" look (especially at the neck). Otherwise, it seems to work fine as a sunscreen. The tint is non-obtrusive. I think you will have to try for yourself to see if it works for you. FYI, the new ingredients (off the back of the box) are as follows:

Active: Zinc Oxide (9%), Titanium Dioxide(7%); Inactive: Alumina, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, iron oxide, isopropyl palmitate, lecithin, linoleic acid, methicone, octyl stearate, octyldodecyl neopentanoate, oleth-3 phosphate, perfluoronyonyl dimethicone, phenoxyexthanol, polyacrylate 13/polyisobutene/polysorbate 20, purified water, quercetin, sodium hydroxide, thioctic acid (alpha lipoic acid), triethoxycaprylylsilane.

I have foolishly spent way too much time in the sun over the years without sunscreen and my skin has paid the price. This product provides a very nice and light coverage and thoroughly protects your skin from the sun’s damaging rays. The tube is a bit small though and it doesn’t last very long, but it is a quality product. I have also started using an amazing skin vitamin serum that helps repair sun damage, helps wrinkles and improves skin elasticity, try it: . I have found that combining this mask with VC20 - Potent 20% Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & a Powerful Amino Acid Complex!

Love this sunscreen. Feels weightless, has a nice light tint that allows me to go without makeup on casual summer pool/beach days and doesn't break me out.

And here's a little tip that can save you some $$ - once you think the tube is empty cut it open and scoop out what's left inside. I get at least another week's worth by doing this.

This sunscreen is my version of a BB-cream! It provides a wonderful light coverage that matches my light skin perfectly. It blends in naturally -- I've never once noticed it. It definitely adds a bit of shine, but sometimes I actually like the dewy effect. Other times a soft dusting of powder more than does the trick of mattifying it.

The most important thing about this sunscreen, however, is how effective it is. I've done hundreds of hours of research on skincare and wrinkle-prevention, and I've learned that UV damage is responsible for a huge majority of the aging we see on our skin. Natural aging (getting older) causes our skin to become lax and loose, but fine lines and wrinkles result almost entirely from sun exposure. I read a study that claimed that humans would not develop wrinkles until age 70 if not for UV exposure!

Therefore, I put a lot of time and effort into finding a good sunscreen. I have super-fair skin that burns after minutes in the sun, and no sunscreen, no matter how high the SPF, was doing the trick for me. But when I switched to a "physical" zinc-oxide sunscreen, suddenly I could spend hours in the sun with no burning! There is also controversy around chemical sunscreens and whether they actually increase the amount of free-radicals in your skin, so I'm happy to use a physical sunblock. My crazy Holistic, all-natural hippie friends refuse to use anything but physical sunscreens. Me, I would slather any chemical on my skin as long as it prevented wrinkles! I'm all about clinical research and results, and this sunblock wins on both those counts. Great ingredients, great protection, nice natural coverage. Recommend.

I got a sample of this product at a spa and instantly was wowed. Enough that i shelled out for the full size deal.

Elta MD UV Physical SPF 41 is one of my top sunscreens because:

1) it's tinted with a good pigment level, saving you a valuable layering step in the moisturizer + foundation+ sunblock routine, and it's neutral in shade. I vary between MAC NC 15-30 and i can totally wear this as tinted moisturizer.

2) it's matte and oil-absorbent---even if you have dry flakes, it won't exacerbate them--i have retinol-treated skin which flakes like crazy, and this formula actually helps flakes ADHERE to the skin so you're not peeling like a monster midday. i have fresh-as-a-daisy skin even at 5pm.

3), it's long-wearing, most likely due to the absorbency.

4) it's zinc and titanium sunblock at spf 40! how much better can you get, esp. with all the furor over chemical sunblocks. Quite simply, it's a much better alternative to my previous HG of tinted spfs, MD Skincare by Dennis Gross.

Physical sunblocks are the way to go. I'll be wearing this all summer as my foundation + sunscreen.

I have been searching for a sunscreen for my face that felt weightless and was also a physical block. It has a high safety and efficacy rating on the EWG (cosmeticdatabase.com) and was reccomended by a dermatologist for me. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and this has not irritated it at all. The tint is so sheer, it works on several skin tones. I'm fair olive skinned and it blended perfectly, my sister has dark olive skin and it blended perfectly as well. Gives a light almost goldish healthy glow that looks great. Let it set in before you dress and it shoudln't get on your clothes. It is paraben free and even has retinol in it!

BUY IT!!! BUY IT!!! BUY IT!!!
