    I'm always searching for a truly non-greasy sunscreen that won't make me break out. I spend a lot of time in the sun in summer--often sweating on a bike or spending a lot of time in and on the water.

    Every other sunscreen I've tried makes me break out. And some aren't even effective as sunscreens. This is a physical screen, not chemical like most others. It doesn't give you "lifeguard zinc nose" but it does leave a bit of a ghost-like haze, particularly if I use too much. That would vary depending on your skin tone.

    You don't need to slather it on. I use a tiny bit, dot it on cheeks, nose, forehead and chin, then rub it in. Another few drops on my neck and chest.

    It's amazingly effective. If I'm not biking or swimming, I'll apply a light dusting of bare minerals foundation to relieve the slight ghost-like haze.

    The cost seems sort of high to someone like me, who uses vats of sunscreen throughout the summer, but since you really only need a dab of it, it's pretty economical.

    I love the Avene moisturizer w/SPF, so I figured I'd try this for the summer, particularly after reading the reviews. First off, it's tinted, which is not indicated anywhere in the product description. Second, it smells absolutely horrible, and the smell doesn't dissipate for a long time. It's not perfume-y---just really bad. Third, I found it greasy, and I have dry skin. [...]

    Comments about Avene Cream Very High Protection SPF 50, 1.94 oz:

    The best sunscreen for face/neck I've used, among many. Does everything it promises in terms of protection with no irritation to my sensitive complexion. The tint is very subtle and actually quite nice, but might not work as well for darker skin tones.

        BEST SUNSCREEN FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

        Comments about Avene Cream Very High Protection SPF 50, 1.94 oz:

        This is a great product. It never looks greasy and it leaves my skin feeling and looking like there's nothing on it. I use it everyday, rain or shine. Also, it does not make my skin break out, and just about every product on the market does.

            I often purchase this product. In my dad's skin sometimes appear skin carcinoms and to protect him he shall use this cream every day. It doesn't matter if he swears, or anywhere it really protects.

                The UV light is quite strong in Colorado. I suffered photosensitization and sunburn last summer.
                This year when I used the sunscreens with chemical filter, I found myself got a red, itch and fevered face. So I tried to find sunscreen without chemical filter. I found this one. It does a good job on me.
                At least it does not cause allergic reactions. I hope it could help me safely go through this summer.

                  I have very sensitive skin and often find that when I use chemical sunscreens along with my moisturizer and foundation, I experience a breakout. This sunscreen protects and may even help make my skin better. It's true it leaves a white "ghost-like" haze on the skin, but that effect does disappear throughout the day, and if you apply foundation or a powder on top, it lessens the appearance. I'm trying to wear sunscreen every day, and this product definitely makes it easy to do that.

                    I have sensitive skin. I tried many brands of sun block lotion before. But they have irritated my skin until I use Avene years ago. This product is very gentle and feels smooth on my skin. It works very well under the sun. The white color makes me look a few years younger. But don't forget to wash it out before you go to bed at night.
