good sunscreen

Tia

The product is quite lightweight and doesn't leave any obvious white cast. I wear a bb cream on top and my skin looks great

Pros & cons but can’t get past the weird texture!

Michaela

This product is a bit of a fail for me but I have to applaud Hunter for coming out with an SPF 50 physical sunscreen - they seem to be hard to come by! I have oily, acne prone skin and have been using Clean Screen by Ultra Violette this past winter (and I LOVE IT) but wanted something with more protection for the Aussie summer. I thought I’d give this a whirl. Firstly, I hate the stick component because I feel it’s unhygienic. Also as you use the product, weird little hard lumps and bumps in the formula become more prominent. They are really rough and would scratch up your face if you applied the product with the stick directly. I took a tip from another reviewer and tried to apply with a brush, but that caused my skincare to pill so I’ve reverted to applying to my fingers and then rubbing it onto my face. The texture of the product feels thick and unpleasant at first, although it’s not the greasiest I’ve tried. It leaves a very noticeable white cast, which doesn’t bother me too much as I usually wear makeup when I leave the house - I can happily use my UV SPF 30 on no makeup days around home since I’m not out in direct sun. The white cast is way too much for someone who doesn’t wear makeup or and I don’t even know if you could get away with it if you used a light bb cream. On the positive side, despite the thickness it does sink into the skin pretty nicely though after 5+ minutes. And it doesn’t make you oily throughout the day, and wore exceptionally well under makeup. In short, the application/packaging is a bit hellish, the white cast is intense, but the actual wear once on your face is pretty good. If Hunter reformulated/repackaged or produced a liquid product, I’d definitely give them another whirl based on the end result of this product. Since it was quite expensive, I’ll use the rest of the product up but won’t repurchase and will keep trying to find my perfect physical or combo SPF 50!

  2. good choice

    stephanie

    I bought this sunscreen for the third time. The sunscreen effect is really good. It is much better than other sunscreens I have used. The moisturizing effect is very good, and it is not greasy and forms a film quickly.
  3. good sunscreen

  4. Fantastic, love it.

    ChristineH

    verified purchaser
    I have sensitive skin and HATE the feeling of sunscreen. This product is light-weight, doesn't get greasy with heat and doesn't have an offensive smell. It does give a white sheen to the face, but can be covered easily with foundation.
    Love that is it ethical, vegan and locally made also.
  5. you got a friend in me

    bree

    As with any physical SPF there’s going to be a slight whitening effect, I found it to be quite minimal with this product and it bends / drys without a trace (I have a fair-medium skin tone).
    I also have combination blemish prone skin and if anything I feel like my breakouts reduced after I started using this which has not been my experience with previous sunscreens.
  6. a bit thick

    Cherry

    i recently tried this but it is a bit thick and harsh on the skin. i put it on a brush and then apply it because if i apply it directly it is a bit rough on my skin. it is good protection though being physical sunscreen that would be very good for summers.
  7. Thick but matte

    Ren

    I prefer warming the end up on my hand otherwise it drags too much in the skin trying to apply.

    It is fairly thick, but fair because most zinc sunscreens are. It does dry matte so no shiny stickiness! Just make sure you rub it in properly cause I sometimes see a powdery type substance near my boyfriends beard line.
  8. not greasy or oily at all

    lily

    the only spf ive used before has been oily and greasy and this one is amazing, not greasy or oily at all
  9. sticky but protective

    shani

    it is sticky on the face and leaves a white cast but at the same time it is super protective. i think it will be great for using on the face and body in summers but for winters i felt it too tacky and sticky.
  10. white cast

    Mani

    i do not like white cast in my sunscreen but i thought it might go away if i would put tinted moisturiser over it. disappointed and it still gave me a white cast. it does have zinc in it that is good for the skin and i think it did bring down the redness on my face while i had it on for the entire day. it also stays on even after i have cleansed my face ( which i do mind) so for me it is a no go. ...

  11. Not smooth

    Mani

    I really want to like this but i feel it is a bit harsh on the skin. I think it should have been a little bit softer than it is and it wouldve been perfect. It cast a white shadow on the face but if i apply a foundation over it, its perfect.
  12. BEST FACE SUNSCREEN

    Beck

    I have tried sooooo many zinc sunscreens, because we all know that physical sunscreens are so much better for your skin and the environment. I have to say this is THE BEST, I've tried and would recommend this to anyone. its so lightweight, no white cast and feels like a serum when you blend it in. its like a skin filter as well really good! Safe for acne and sensitive skin.
  13. white cast!

    Lily

    This sunscreen leaves a white cast and I have found quite hard to apply. It doesn't glide on from the tube very easily, which I haven't found ideal for applying to the face.
  14. Safe Choice

    Tessa

    I chose this sunscreen because I wanted a physical sunscreen rather than a chemical, that was 50 spf. I love the stick form it comes in which means there is minimal rubbing in. Although only reason I went for 4 out of 5 stars was that it claims to be non greasy but I found it quite greasy. That being said, I’ve never found a sunscreen that was non greasy, especially if you applying over your skinc...

  15. not great application

    lorraine

    im not a fan of the application but its a nice sunscreen
  16. Good for the body

    ariane

    Nice and easy to use, simply wipe over your skin. Great for body, simply wipe over arms and legs. Smells nice, easy to use, and very high SPF
  17. Favourite sunscreen

    Lexie

    This sunscreen is amazing for everyday application! Had never heard of the brand or sunscreen, but decided to give it a go. I think this sunscreen is underrated! Firstly, I love that it's in a stick. Easy to pop in the handbag and just feels nicer and easier to apply on the face. My skin type is oily and acne prone, and this sunscreen never makes me look shiny, I actually love the way it sits on m...

  18. doesnt make you break out

    loz

    this sunscreen is great for the face, it doesnt make you break out at all or make you look oily. Definitely recommend!
  19. great for sensitive skin

    monique

    works super well on sensitive skin and doesnt break me out. also suited on oily skin as it doesnt clog pores
  20. Natural sun protection

    Cath

    I received a full size sample of this from Hunter Lab and I find it really good. It is a natural sun protection with an Spf 50 that goes on white but melts instantly into my skin and doesn’t leave it oily/shiny at all. It has very little smell and some great skin loving ingredients.
  21. Great for sensitive skin

    MB

    Great facial sunscreen. My skin tends to break out using normal sunscreen but I have never had that problem with this product. Feels so light and works well.
  22. Good

    Alice

    This is a good sunscreen but i find that it leaves a white cast
  23. Lovely!

    Kristie

    Like this product, it does leave a white cast, because of the zinc, but goes on beautifully, and with makeup over the top, there is no white cast! Makeup applies well over the top!
  24. Scrubby feeling....

    Belinda

    Does anyone have the feeling of using a scrub when you rub this sunscreen in?I have used the stick three times and every time I rub it over my face, even with very gentle and small strokes, the texture feels like a sand paper.
    It’s like giving a scrub to your face every morning, which is definitely not what I expected. Wondering if it has something to do with the quality of the stick...
  25. Excellent sun protection

    Jo

    I've started using this daily as the weather has been much hotter and I worry a lot about sun exposure. This one is great, it feels good on and has SP50 which is a huge plus. It's on the pricey side for sunscreen but I think it's worth the investment.
  26. This stuff is the s***

    Milly

    Maybe it leaves a tiny white cast, but just let it sit for 10 before you put on the rest of your makeup. Having said that, I love This stuff. It’s natural, made in Melb and 50+. Also, I’ve put this over the top of pulsating blind pimples and at the end of the day... the pimples have actually gone down. Enough said.
  27. its goods!

    Benji

    I was skeptical on this sunscreen, mainly because I have oily skin and different types of sunscreen can make my skin break out. But this product is great! No breakouts!
  28. Non-greasy, does the job, but sits on top of skin

    El

    This is the best physical based sunscreen that I've tried so far. I know that chemically based sunscreen are typically required to get a full sink-into-the-skin effect, so Hunter Lab have attempted to compensate admirably here. Rather than feeling like a moisturiser, this sunscreen feels a little like a matte foundation - you can definitely feel it on top of the skin, there is a slight white cast,...

  29. Hunter Lab SPF 50+ Facial Sunscreen Comfort in all conditions

    Lucia

    I love the feel of this sunscreen and knowing it’s 50+ makes it even better especially coming up to an Aussie summer!!
    It’s great in any condition but I think this will be brilliant in summer, absorbs quick, no sticky, white or greasy residue so great for humid temperatures
  30. Great natural sunscreen for everyday use

    Sylvia

    I’m obsessed with wearing sunscreen every day & a few years ago switched to using non-chemical, natural ones. This is a great one - really nice satiny texture, feels nice, not greasy. If you have any skin tone darker than very fair, it will give you a very slight whitish caste but it largely disappears if you rub it in well, and I just put a bit of tinted moisturiser/bb cream on top of it & it get...

    Emma

    So glad this exists! It is hydrating, forms an awesome base for makeup, doesn’t ‘slip off’ in the day, doesn’t cause breakouts, is easy to apply and convenient for travel. As long as you blend the whiteness is fine and goes away after about ten minutes. Incredible.
  32. Good sunscreen

    Danielle

    Good facial sunscreen that easily sits under makeup. I add a touch of bronzing serum to throw any white cast this product gives (just a tip). It hasn’t got a severe white cast but it’s certainly unavoidable with sunscreens to have absolutely none.
  33. Ok

    Rachel

    I have been looking for a physical sunscreen that will not leave white cast and greasy finish on the skin for long time. I was excited after receiving this product after reading all the good reviews, but was disappointed that it still gave me a white cast and make me looking like a ghost and it’s also really greasy. The only thing that I like about it is that it comes as a stick so you won’t spill...

  34. Exceeded Expectation!

    Sepi

    I have normal to dry skin and am always looking for high protection physical sunscreens.

    This facial sunscreen is very easy to apply especially on the forehead and the bridge of the nose, both areas most neglected. I still do rub it in with my finger tips after application and find that there is still more product left on my face than on my hands!
    texture is very soft and silky ...

    Great facial sunscreen. My skin tends to break out using normal sunscreen but I have never had that problem with this product. Feels so light and works well.
  36. Amazing

    Anita

    This is an amazing sunscreen that kees my skin protected and isn't too greasy.
  37. High SPF

    Anna

    I love that this has such a high SPF value, but I think the physical ingredients cause a white cast on deeper skin. Very convenient to wear otherwise, and would recommend for those who have light-medium skin or just to wear on the body
  38. fantastic

    Lily

    This leaves my skin such a lovely texture while protecting me from the sun! Love the packaging as it's so easy to apply
  39. Great choice in sunscreen

    Jacqui

    Love this sunscreen, being a roll-on it doesn't leak in your bag and is so easy to put on without getting it all over your hands.
  40. Great under makeup

    Alexina (Adore Beauty Staff)

    This sunscreen had ups and downs for me but overall it's one of the better physical sunscreens I've tried.

    On the plus side, it was very hydrating on my skin which is always dehydrated, and the finish was great - nice and glowy but not greasy or shiny. It also works VERY well under makeup.

    On the not-so-good side, this did leave a slight white tint on my skin, and I'm qui...

  41. finally clean sunscreen that is nice to wear!

    Samantha

    This sunscreen is very easy to blend, and my make up sat really nicely on top of it.

    I love the convenient format, it makes it very easy to transport without worrying smashing or spilling in your bag.

    I also like that it doesn't have any detectable smell. Often physical sunscreen has a really strong smell, but not this one!
