“The single most important thing one can do for young skin is to protect it from future signs of sun damage. Any broad spectrum (protecting against ageing UVA and burning UVB) SPF of 30 or above is fine (try La Roche Posay, Vichy and Avene for cheaper offerings), but this is my favourite. It’s extremely lightweight and natural, with not a hint of grease, and provides a smooth, stable base for makeup. I find it’s enough to go straight over serum, no moisturiser.”

Usually when I wear sunscreen I have major break outs the next day, this is the only one i have found that doesnt cause a flare in my acne which is why i never use anything but this, fabulous sunscreen
This is an excellent defence. Lovely light consistency, matt finish and you can feel that it's good quality. Good under make-up and over moisturiser. My only gripe is that it leaves my face looking white, otherwise I'd give it full stars.
I have oily acne prone skin and was previously using another brand of mineral sunscreen that was making my skin flare up, I discovered that it had coconut oil quite high up on the ingredients list which can aggravate acne and oily skin so I stopped using it. I then found skinceuticals sheer mineral defence, I've been using it for a few weeks now and my skin has never been clearer, the large pores I had have now gone and I'm much less oily, I've only had one or two spots which have cleared up very quickly. It leaves a slight whiteness when it first goes on but this soon disappears on my pale skin. It's not at all heavy and is a good base under foundation, make sure you give the bottle a good shake before using though. Overall this is a great high protection sunscreen for oily spot prone skin.
