Thank you Skinstitut for a great 50+


This is my saviour and as i have recently moved to a hot climate, this is a wonderful product. Yes, its a bit thick in consistency, but for my skin being sensitive i thought i would break out and i never did. The thick consistency doesn't bother me at all as the end goal is to provide daily protection & minimise wrinkles. I am a person that only uses concealer, mascara and the tiniest bit of powder on my red chin, so this product suits me to a T and i always get complements of how hydrated my skin is and that they couldn't believe i was 32yrs old. I love this product and I will definitely repurchase for this hot climate.

A bit heavy


I was really excited to try this one because I’ve heard good reviews but I wasn’t a fan. It’s a nice feeling on your skin but for someone who sweats a lot, it felt so heavy like you’re wearing a face mask all the time and you just want to take it off. I was previously using Alpha H’s SPF so it’s a big difference in the consistency!
  1. It's ok


    verified purchaser
    Great sunscreen but is very thick and tacky feeling. Not a big fan to be honest.. feels very heavy on the skin so I would not use under make up or with other products, strictly just at the beach.
  2. So thick!


    I really dislike this! It is way too thick and feels horrible on my oily skin! Also takes ages to absorb so my skin feels like its covered in thick gross cream for forever!

  4. Not a fan


    verified purchaser
    I've loved every Skinstitut product I've ever tried, except this one. I wanted an SPF50+ moisturiser for daily use on my face. This product is incredibly heavy, sticky, shiny and creates a strong white cast (and I'm very pale). My hair just kept sticking to my face and my face looked very oily. Do not recommend.
  5. Good moisturiser


    verified purchaser
    Good moisturiser for dry skin and sun protection as well. I use it over moisturiser for extra hydration during summer months it gives refreshing felling to face .
  6. Really thick sunscreen


    verified purchaser
    Found this not a great moisturiser more a good sun cream. Definately need to use with a moisturiser with it. Lovely going on though
  7. Another great Skinstitut product


    This moisturiser is perfect under make up and doesn't leave my skin greasy. Very well priced also. Skinstitut has fast become my #1 brand. Love the price, quality and supporting an Australian brand.
  8. Not for sensitive skin


    verified purchaser
    Normally I love Skinstitut products but this made my sensitive skin badly react. It also left a white cast and was very thick.
  9. Impressive


    verified purchaser
    Love this product & the fact that you know your skin is protected by SPF 50+.


    I love Skinstitut products, so I am not trolling the brand, but this product was absolutely horrible. I have oily skin, so I am weary of unknown SPFs to begin with. Immediately after application, it turned my face into this greasy, excessively shiny oil slick. it was just heavy on my face and generally disgusting to wear.

    My advice - if you have oily skin avoid, if you have dry/dehyd...

  11. Great protection


    I wore this before a skin mapping appointment and the beauty therapist couldn't see my skin through the blue light. Enough said, coverage is great. I use it on my body too and haven't been burnt once with it on. The only downside is that if its a humid day this can be a bit sweaty as it is so thick.
  12. A bit heavy


    I was really excited to try this one because I’ve heard good reviews but I wasn’t a fan. It’s a nice feeling on your skin but for someone who sweats a lot, it felt so heavy like you’re wearing a face mask all the time and you just want to take it off. I was previously using Alpha H’s SPF so it’s a big difference in the consistency!
  13. Best moisturiser


    Third time purchase .it is good sunscreen for all year around .doesn't feel heavy on face as the other sunscreen lotions do .
  14. Too thick, but okay


    My first impression on this was that its consistency is too thick when applied on face. It also leaves the face a bit oily, so really need to apply loose powder to reduce the oil. But other than that, it looks fine. Most importantly it does not contain comedogenic ingredients, which is rare to find in sunscreen.
  15. Anti-aging


    It is a good anti aging sunscreen lotion. I use it every day in the morning even in winter
  16. Never been burnt


    Great sunscreen, anytime I've worn this under my makeup I have never been burnt even though I've been in direct sunlight for hours. Sits nicely under my makeup, but it quite thick to apply, it does leave my skin shiny.
  17. Dewy and Somewhat Fresh Look


    I love how dewy this makes me look because I personally love the dewy look but at the same time, I find it very sticky and within a few hours I think my face becomes oily instead of dewy.
  18. Important Step


    One of the most important steps of skin care is sunscreen in the day!! Love this sunscreen although I do think there a nicer lightweight ones out there. I am a massive fan of Skinstitut so have tried a lot of their products. Would purchase this again but also will keep my options open.
  19. Every body should use sunscreen


    I’m on my third bottle of this stuff it amazing. I even brought it for family members. Not only I have managed to never get that horrible sunburnt nose my skin looks great and it’s great under makeup. Rub in well on days without makeup so u don’t look white. It’s thick and feels wonderful I love it under really matte foundations to make them more dewy!!! Highly recommend
  20. sun protection


    it is a very good sun protection. light formula. it has creamy texture that is not too flowy.
  21. A little bit thick


    Not too oily, as some suncreams can be... But it is a little thick and I have found it leaves a bit of a white sheen on my face
  22. Sunscreen for Acne Prone


    If you have acne prone skin and have been looking for a sunscreen that doesn't aggravate it, this is for you. This sunscreen doesn't make your face feel oily yet provides amazing coverage/protection. Dries quickly and I wear it everyday under my makeup with no issues. Would recommend to double cleanse at the end of the day to ensure it has been removed completely. LOVE!
  23. Good daily use for the price point


    Sure, I have used more luxe lightweight high end 50+ but for the price point this is definitely a solid performer. It has an initial whitecast that disappears in seconds, its not a matte finish its more of a dewy finish but I like that personally. Goes nice under makeup. It has a subtle, pleasant scent. Overall a happy, repeat customer made!
  24. Take this to work with me


    I wouldn't consider this as good as any of my 'luxury' sunscreens but it's ok for the price and how long it lasts. Feels hydrating on the skin due to the thickness which is easily hidden under makeup. Easy to spread and doesn't pill. I personally don't mind the shine/hydrated look it gives my skin although I understand some would fine it too greasy.
  25. We all scream for sunscreen


    I love this product, it’s moisturising, non-sticky and makes my skin look smoother. A real winner.
  26. the only sunscreen i use


    this is the only sun protection i use. it has maximum sun protection i am very happy with it. definitely worth the price.
  27. Great sunscreen


    This is a great moisturiser and sunscreen but it is quite thick in consistency. I generally mix it with a little water based lotion to help apply it to my face
  28. Best moisturiser


    Best thing I can use it under makeup it keeps skin hydrated.
  29. Good


    I have oily skin and I liked this sunscreen but it does not look the best on my skin compared to my fav sunscreen but it is still good
  30. perfect spa


    I love using this with the moisture defence in themornings, a perfect pair together. This product is thick but it glides on the skin so nicely and feels cooling on the skin.
  31. Too heavy for daily application


    I bought this a while ago, and was hoping it would be the answer to my SPF prayers. But, it is too thick for a daily application, especially with additional moisturisers and serums that I use daily.
    My skin is normal to dry, so maybe it is better for someone who has quite dry skin ? Ultimately, I wouldn't buy again - especially when there are lighter sunscreen serums/ products now available...

  32. Love it


    Absolutely love this SPF, it’s nice and thick which I like because I have dry skin. After sinking in I feel that it leaves a nice sheen to the skin like a nice glow. I use it with a moisturiser underneath and feel hydrated and protected all day.
  33. Quite thick


    This one is quite thick and does not apply well. Might be more suitable for someone with dry skin who need extra moisturising benefits with spf.
  34. my favourite face sunscreen


    My skin is early 40s, dry, hormonal, I have struggled to find a facial sunscreen that doesn't leave a white layer on my face, AND doesn't block my pores AND actually works as a sunscreen even after swimming, hot days, exercise etc.
    This is the first sunscreen I've tried that actually ticks all 3 boxes.
    I got it in the starter kit and i love it, will definitely buy again.

  35. Great to use as a primer for makeup


    I use this as my last step in the mornings before I apply my makeup and it works great as a primer. It took me a little while to get use to the consistency but I love how nourishing this product is. I also love that it has high spf and I use it as my daily sunscreen for my face. I haven’t had any issues with my face getting sunburnt since using this product which I did have occur quite a lot befor...

  36. thick, not for under makeup


    this is very thick and greasy. i think it breaks me out too..but all sunscreens do unfortunately still searching for one that doesnt.
  37. Not great for darker skin tones


    I have a medium to tan skin tone and this leaves a purple cast on me, and it’s quite thick in consistency which I don’t mind but it may bother some. It’s ok, but the purple cast is a pretty big downside for me.
  38. Best sunscreen


    I have combination acne prone skin so all sunscreen break me out or is drying. This sunscreen feels like normal sunscreen and whitens my face like sunscreen (I have Indian brown skin) however it moisturises well and my skin doesn’t dry out or get too oily.
    I don’t break out too. It’ll be nice in a bigger tube as it’s costly and I can use it for my body. It because it’s small and expensive ...

    White cast. Too thick. Greasy. Sticky. Perfect for someone who who has dry skin.
  40. Decent Product


    I find that it does really work for my skin but the texture is very thick and might not be the best choice if you have really oily skin.

    I put on a light moisturiser first, though and then put on the sunscreen.
    It helps it go on more easily without that tough, thick texture that it kind of has.

    Otherwise, it protects my skin really well and sits underneath makeup n...

  41. Apply daily as part of my skincare regimen as wrinkle preventative


    I was recommended this product by a skin specialist and decided to use it when overseas in Bali. I have very fair, sensitive skin and I’m not usually keen on wearing facial sunscreen as they are often heavy and greasy. I applied this sunscreen to my face and neck, every morning. On days when I was wearing makeup, it acted like a primer and I applied the sunscreen after my moisturizer. My makeup sa...

  42. Not great for oily skin


    Quite a thick, zinc like product which didn't go so well with my oily and acne-prone skin. Did not break me out but definitely needed to be used sparingly on the face. Otherwise, it is an affordable high SPF for the face and had no concerns with its use under makeup.
  43. My favourite sunscreen ever


    I’m very happy with this as I’ve always struggled with sunscreen clogging my skin. This does a great job at protecting me and helping my acne. Great spf product and I will forever use this!
  44. A bit heavy


    Quite a thick consistency for me. Love how it leaves my skin looking like its dewy when I'm make up free, but it doesn't work well under my make up after a full day.
  45. Nope!


    Far too heavy, thick and greasy for my oily combo skin. I hate wasting product but just can’t bring myself to use it past the two applications. Do not recommend if you are after a light weight, absorbing formula.

  47. Too thick


    Sorry to say I didn’t like this at all . I have acne prone skin and this is definitely a no go. Feels very thick. If you do use it it would be best to pat onto the skin. Wouldn’t recommend for oily skin type
  48. My daily


    Does not leave skin feeling oily or greasy. Great product to apply before makeup. I use this product daily and highly recommend.
  49. Everyday must have


    I love this product, I work outdoors and I use this daily. It has really helped protect my skin and prevent more pigmentation. In summer it is my daytime moisturiser in winter I apply over the top of my age defence.
  50. A reliable cream for sun protection


    Can be used underneath make up or just on its own if you’re going to be exposed to sunlight. We all know the sun can rapidly age skin so I recommend you carry this with you if you’re not wearing make up often and are exposing your face to the sun often. The consistency is very much like a sun block and has the same lasting effect. I haven’t been burnt once since using this cream which is why I con...

  51. Very thick but feels protective


    This product I find I have to put on a face oil or moisturizer first so that it goes on easier. It is quite chalky feeling and very thick. I have to pat it on very thinly and try to spread it which takes a long time. It looks very greasy for the first hour but settles into a fairly matte finish after a while
  52. TOO THICK.


    I really wanted to like this product as Skinstitut has a range of affordable yet great products,

    I just found it to be SUPER thick and didn't like the way it sat under my make-up (made me extra oily)

    I feel there are so many other sunscreens on the market that do a far better job than this one.
  53. Really good


    I really love this SPF. It doesn’t feel or smell as strong as normal sunscreen. It’s not greasy or sticky. It goes well under makeup. I have oily/combo acne prone skin and it doesn’t cause any breakouts
  54. Too thick and greasy


    I love skinstitut products but this sunscreen was not what I was expecting. Sure it worked, I didn’t get sunburnt however it’s so incredibly think and oily even a small amount just sat on my skin attracting dirt and anything else in the air. It did no sink into my skin at all and being so oily I found that after a few short hours of wearing it my pores were clogging and I was breaking out in white...

  55. Amazing


    This sunscreen is great for combination skin. It’s not too greasy and sticky. Definitely recommend.
  56. Not for sensitive skin


    I absolutely LOVE Skinstitut products, but for my skin this product was to sensitive to. The SPF50+ is great for those out in the sun! But I found it flared up my eczema.
  57. Good protection!


    This brand is reliable and gives good results. Perfect product to use on the beach. It is water resistant and does not have that shiny aspect of other solar sunscreens. I do not recommend it for daily use or under the makeup, personally I think it's a bit heavy for that, because its texture is dense.
  58. Good quality


    Great sunscreen for sensitive skin, feels nice but struggled trying to put makeup over the top, felt a little thick. I would certainly recommend it as a good quality sunscreen though.
  59. Great formula


    Formula is great for my combination skin and it stayed on after swimming and/or sweating. Did need to re apply more frequently though
  60. Great protection!


    I have really fair/sensitive skin so found it hard to find a 50+ sunscreen that wasn't oily. The sunscreen is very thick, however you don't need much. I also love that it's waterproof. Highly recommend primer if wearing under foundation but otherwise is great!
  61. Too thick


    Although this product did protect me from the sun I found it way too thick and cakey, it also left a white film over my face and made me break out.
  62. Fabolous


    Got a sample of this sunscreen. Had the chance to try it. Skinstitut is a well known brand. My Laser clinic sells these products. I have dry skin. This one is REALLY good. It's water resistant keep my make up in tact. Soft on skin great feeling. Price is good but it's only 2 hours resistant.
  63. Great sunscreen for oily skin


    Great for my oily skin - not too heavy or greasy., Perfect for applying under foundation.
  64. Sun lover

    Best protection. I use this whenever We go on our boat. Best protection for face and neck.
  65. Finally a lightweight sunscreen that isn't greasy


    Finally a lightweight sunscreen that is SPF50 and applies nicely to the skin without being oily, thick and greasy. This applies so nicely under makeup and I use it everyday. I love it and am so glad I found it. I have been through so many SPF products that claim to be non greasy and lightweight only to be disappointed by how terribly they are on my oily skin and how terrible they look under makeup...

  66. Doesn't sting my skin


    I've tried hundreds of 'gentle, non-sting' sunscreens and none of them worked. This is the one sunscreen that has NEVER stung when I've applied it to my skin.

    It is a thick cream compared to others but offers great coverage because of this. I have fair skin and have found this the most effective cover that doesn't have to be reapplied constantly.
  67. Not a fan


    I heard good things about this product so I thought I would give it a try (especially to get into better habits to wear sunscreen) but was pretty disappointed. I found it quite thick to put on and left that white sheen, didn't feel very hydrating either. I am now temporarily just using a basic neutrogena hydro boost spf 50 and compared with the skinstitut I actually love it, it's even nice under m...

  68. My everyday sunscreen


    This sunscreen is very effective. I use it everyday and have never gotten sunburnt. I also love the creamy texture.
  69. doesn't break me out


    I have skin that is prone to breakouts and it is very sensitive to products and often causes breakouts however this product does not break me out it goes on fairly thickly and have to wait a few minutes before my makeup
  70. excelent protection unless you perspire a lot


    This sunscreen is easy to apply and lasts well on my skin, when the weather is not too hot.

    In the hotter months, when I perspire, it runs down my face. I then need to cleanse my face and reapply.

    The product has a lovely feel on my skin and causes no irritation of my sensitive skin.
  71. It’s ok


    This is quite a thick sunscreen and leaves a slight white cast. I ended up using it on my neck as I found it too much for my face and prefer something smoother like the supreme screen. I never burnt with it on however for the money I’d rather pay more and get a product that sits comfortably.
  72. Moisturising and works well


    I like this suncream as it can be used as a moisturiser too. I spent the last week at the beach and my freckles didn't darken with this product smeared on. It takes a little while to sink in and you may need to powder your nose, but all in all, it's a great product, and it works well! Also, it smells nice to put on but it doesn't linger
  73. It works well


    I have acne prone skin and normally have breakouts with many sunscreens, but with this product I didn’t have any aggravated skin at all! It’s a bit thick but very very moisturising. I probably tend to use too much with each reapply but I love the feeling of it on my skin and it doesn’t have a sunscreen odour
  74. Works well.


    This product works well for my acne prone skin. It doesn’t have a strong sunscreen odour which I appreciate. It’s hard finding spf50+ sunscreen that doesn’t aggravate my skin, but this one works great! I find that I reapply a lot just to be safe which means if you are outside a lot it is used quickly.
  75. There are better SPF products


    I was excited to try this SPF50 as I am super pale and forever looking for the perfect SPF product. Unfortunately I did not like it... I felt like the product sat on top of my skin like a film with a milky residue. I am already pale but this made my skin look sickly. So, its not for me.
  76. Great for sensitive, acne prone skin


    I use this every single day. It is very hard to find a sunscreen that does not break out my sensitive acne-prone skin. It is great for sun protection as it states. I also don't need to use a moisturiser (if you have oily skin) since it provides enough moisture for my skin. It is also great as a make-up primer!!
    The only downside for me is after you apply it, it's sticky on your skin the who...

  77. A little bit heavy but great SPF protection


    Can feel a little heavy/sticky when applying so I tried to only use a little bit (which means a bottle lasts me aaages) but does an amazing job at protecting my skin from sun damage. I recommend it but if you have really oily skin might be best to try something different.
  78. Great SPF


    I am prone to breakouts and this sunscreen doesn't cause my skin to produce any blemishes or clog my pores. A little goes a long way too so it's great value! It works great for drier skin. It Can become a little oily in hot weather but can be helped by using less product than in the colder months.
  79. Good but thick


    This product is good but it goes on really thick and it feels heavy. I still purchase it but use it as a face sunscreen for the beach instead of an every day sunscreen
  80. I use this everyday!


    I use this every day for sun protection. I particularly like this one as it isn't as heavy as other brands.
  81. Great product!


    Good sunscreen that doesn’t clog pores! I find it is amazing under makeup, however I have to press it on my face as it can make me feel sweaty if rubbed in.
  82. Love My New Skinstitut Age Defence SPF50+


    I've always looked after my skin with good moisturisers and have only just started using Skinstitut products and I'm so happy I have. I'm having laser to lighten my horrible age spots and my dermatologist insisted I use SPF50+Broad Spectrum on my face.

  83. Oily skin not suited


    I have oiled and acne prone skin, this is quite an oily mixture so really didnt help with my acne, and made my skin look and feel greasy. Would be good for dry skin.
  84. Daily use


    I have acne prone skin and this sunscreen didn’t break me out. I use this every morning and it works well for me. The texture is medium but the moment I apply on my skin it’s gone. I love the smell as well. Definitely repurchase.
  85. Maybe


    I love this sunscreen although I feel like it is a little more oily for my oily skin and I get greasy easily
  86. Intense purple cast on medium-deep skin tones


    This sunscreen is so thick and uncomfortable to wear under makeup, but my major issue is that it leaves a crazy purple cast on my medium-dark skin tone. I found that I had to wear full coverage foundation when using this sunscreen because the purple cast was so bad.
  87. LOVE


    I use this everyday! it is such a treat for my skin and i feel like i am protecting it very well
  88. The best sunscreen


    This is the best sunscreen ever and , trust me, I tried so many!!! Perfect for my sensitive dry skin, it leaves my skin soft and well repaired. Nice smell, great texture for sunscreen: thick but not too much and very easy to massage in the face and neck
  89. Good facial sunscreen


    Goes on beautifully. Feels nice. Good coverage. A good staple sunscreen that isn’t a chore to apply.
  90. Great for break out prone skin


    This sunscreen is good for breakout prone skin. It can leave skin a bit shiny/dewy, but if you like that like I do then this is perfect. Goes great under make up and can help reduce some redness too.
  91. Love it


    I have combination skin type. This sunscreen is amazing. It’s not thick and non-greasy. Doesn’t make my face feels suffocated. It is good for everyday use. Highly recommend.
  92. Too thick to be used as everyday sunscreen/moisturiser


    This product is not a moisturising sunscreen and it is definitely to thick and chalky for a work day. I would use it for days at the beach, in the garden or in my bike. I need a sunscreen that can double as everyday moisturiser and sunscreen. Save your money and buy one from the supermarket or chemist
  93. Love It


    I use this everyday and love how it feels on my skin, I even stopped wearing makeup as I love the glowy look this gives my face on it's own!
  94. Easy to apply


    This products absorbs very well and is great under makeup. I bought it thinking it was a moisturiser with sunscreen but it's just a sunscreen. However it would be great in summer and it certainly doesn't leave your skin with a white film! Skinstitut products have all proven very cost effective and certainly of a good quality.
  95. Summer primer


    I love this spf I have sensitive skin, in summer I use it as a primer and it does not shine keeps the face hydrating, non grease and easy to blend
  96. Good for combination skin


    Good as an everyday moisturizer, as it has an SPF. Did make my skin abit oily, that would be the only down side. I use the regular moisturizer daily and it doesnt have the same effect on my skin.
