Great. Would repurchase.

I have dry pretty sensitive skin, this product leaves the most slight whitecast on me. I only notice the whitecast looking in a mirror in darker conditions, in normal lighting conditons you dont even notice it. I have tried over 10 different K beauty sunscreens , this one is in my top 3 . would only purchase this on sale and not full retail. lasting power seems good but not "waterproof" . Much better lasting power than water based chemical K beauty sunscreen.

Good option for those whose skin is not sensitive, white cast

This sunscreen is a good option for those with combination/ oily skin. However, it did leave my skin a tiny bit tight. This is due to the fact that my skin is very sensitive to essential oils as well as rose water. As Rosa Damascena flower oil is listed as the third ingredient, I suspect that it was the cause of my skin tightness. Also, according to the EWG Rosa Damascena flower oil is high for allergic reactions so I would keep that in mind if you are considering purchasing this product and have sensitive skin. The sunscreen also left a slight white cast on me and as I am very pale I would advise those with darker skin tones to avoid this product.

My pre-FA, Sensitive Skin/Sun Allergy Holy Grail Sunscreen

The only reason I'm getting rid of this sunscreen is because I'm moving on to tackle my fungal acne. Other than that, it was my holy grail for a number of years.

I have a sun allergy (aka Photosensitivity) so high SPF is really important. I'm also allergic to chemical sunscreen filters, so I can only use mineral sunscreen filters.

Dr. G is super high protection, has a thick finish that somehow absorbs quickly, didn't leave a huge white cast (note: I'm olive skinned, so deeper skin tones might not have the same results), and sat well under makeup. I also found its pollution blocking attributes to be true – I ran out of it for a few weeks and switched to my backup sunscreen, which resulted in noticably more clogged skin.

The only complaint I have about this sunscreen is that it occasionally left my skin feeling a bit dry and tight. This was easy enough to remedy with a layer of good cream moisturizer over the sunscreen, so it didn't bother me, and was only really an issue in the dead of winter.

All in all, this sunscreen is going to be a tough act to follow :(
