Most Helpful Positive



After years of searching, finally found this beauty! A physical sunscreen that provides high SPF protection, leaves a perfect matte finish and no white cast at all. Will definitely repurchase.

Most Helpful Criticism

Was excited to try this but was disappointed


Really great in theory- being someone that is allergic to chemical sunscreens, however, it made me break out and skin always felt super dry after using it no matter how much I moisturised or prepped skin.
I have never lasted longer than 2 hours with the sunscreen on, as my skin feels reptilian after applying.
  1. Nice product


    I love the supreme screen, but found this product much thicker and made my skin break out
  2. Bad pilling


    I had high hopes for this after trying and using the Supreme Screen for awhile. It goes on thicker than Supreme Screen, feels and smells nice when applying. After only a couple of hours of wear, I found really bad pilling and separation in my foundation around my chin. I have combination/slightly oily skin and wear EL Double Wear during the day and it seems my natural oils don't suit this sunscree...

    verified purchaser
    I really wanted to like this sunscreen given I am a huge fan of the Clean Screen but felt it was far too thick!!! It feels like it takes forever to rub in and I can feel the heaviness after I have applied. Not a fan

    I think I will stick to the Clean Screen instead as that one is incredible and feels like you're wearing nothing
  5. Excellent physical sunscreen


    Really loving this mineral sunscreen. As promised, it rubs in clear and easily without feeling sticky or thick. It remains a bit glossy looking for a good 10 mins or so but after that dries down well, without being either too oily or too dry for my combo skin needs. I have been leaving it only 5 mins or so between applying and then adding on my make up base (either MAC or bare minerals rescue gel)...

  6. HG physical sunscreen


    verified purchaser
    I just love this spf! Great spreadability and gentler than other spfs I’ve tried. I’ve had queen screen & supreme screen in the past, but this is my new favourite!
  7. Not one for layering


    verified purchaser
    I’m sure this is a great sunscreen, but it’s not suitable for use over serums... goes all flakey and gross. I’ll stick to original in same range and continue to layer away!

  9. Not as great as their other products


    I’ll start by saying I am a huge huge huge fan of the Supreme Screen and Queen Screen products from the Ultra Violets range so I was very excited to try this product. Unfortunately, it did not work for my skin. I got this product as I ran out of my other SPFs so was using it everyday and it gave me the worst breakouts. That’s not to say it will do the same for others but if you have sensitive skin...

  10. Cannot say enough good things about this


    I was advised to use a physical sunscreen rather a chemical one and this one is sooo good. Doesn’t make my face red when I wear it over vitamin C . I am just so glad that UV came out with the physical sunscreen.
  11. My new go to this summer


    I immediately purchased this when it came out as I’m a big fan of the brand, (but was having to powder several times a day to lose the sheen from queen screen I was getting as the weather warms up). I don’t get greasy with lean screen, and I haven’t noticed any colour issue (I only use two pumps though), and I’m light-medium neutral colouring. Haven’t noticed pilling, but it does take some effort ...

  12. A decent zinc-based sunscreen


    1. High spf - I like that it’s spf 50+ which will be perfect for summer
    2. No white cast - I’ve been wearing mineral sunscreen for years and ultra violette has done a good job in removing the ghostly cast that comes with zinc oxide
    3. I didn’t find any pilling even know I wear the the ordinary Niacinamide + zinc serum underneath.
    4. I find that the sunscreen is thi...

  13. The sunscreen I've been waiting for


    I was VERY impressed with this sunscreen, far more than past Ultra violette sunscreens which were oily/shiny. This does not leave a white cast and is very matte. The pricetag is hefty but I believe this may be my new go to.
  14. Okay...


    I find this product IMPOSSIBLE to rub around/into my skin. I end up rubbing too hard & causing irritation. It’s also super matte (yes, as advertised) BUT it dulls my skin completely. I NOW mix Lean Screen with my ‘Supreme Screen//hydrating’ and it’s perfect! Supreme screen was TOO hydrating previously (made me shiny)...mixing them together...absolutely GENIUS!!!
  15. Tint Alert


    I used it only once and had to wash it off a couple of hours later because of a strangely dull complexion it created on my face. I am fair to light, with yellowish undertone and this tint is really too dark. I can see the manufacturer’s effort in counterbalancing the classic white cast of a zinc sunscreen but this is too far — unfriendly to lighter skin tones. So maybe they can think of adding a ...

  16. Love it


    This will be perfect for my summer holiday days where I want a stronger coverage. It is thick, and goes on delightfully, it does feel a bit minerally to touch on the face. It is sunscreen though, so can be expected. Great tint for my fair skin.
  17. Meh, Ok


    Had high hopes for this. Its a thick formula, but it does smooth and sink into your skin quickly. Not overly matte, still has a sheen. I liked how it applied and felt. My problem was after around 2-3 hrs of wear, it separated all of my foundation on my chin. I am a combo skin type and when my natural oils came through and combined my foundation looked horrible. I have tried a few different foundat...

  18. Don't let initial texture put you off


    I have been searching for a good 50+ physical face sunscreen for a long time. This feels very thick and sticky at first, at first application I thought I was going to hate it, but it leaves no white cast and absorbs beautifully to leave no residue and quite matte ready to slather on my dewy makeup. This is what I reach for each day and looking forward to testing it out in the hot summer months!
  19. Best mineral sunscreen I have tried


    I absolutely am in love with this SPF. Ultra Violette has really done this well. Every mineral SPF I have tried, even with relatively low inputs of zinc oxide or with 'clear' zinc has been thick, casty, and very greasy. This could not be further from that. It is a pretty thick cream, and it takes a second to warm up and spread on the face, but it is by no means difficult and the finish is almost i...

  20. So disappointed :(


    I was SO EXCITED to get my hands on this product.
    I had used Clean Screen in the past but really wanted 50+.
    For my extremely oily skin, Lean Screen sounded like the answer to all my prayers.
    But, Unfortunately this product pills.
    Even waiting 10-15 minutes after skincare to sink in, it completely balls up all over my face and neck.

  21. Great for sensitive skin


    After loving the other two sunscreens in the range, I bought this one for the upcoming warmer months. It is, like all other sunscreen in the UV range, is easy to use and looks nice on the skin. It gives a subtly matte look and is not irritating at all on my sensitive skin and eyes.
  22. Another winner


    Was so excited to try the new sunscreen.
    A bit thicker then their other physical sunscreen but that doesn't bother me.
    No white cast, no smell, no aggravation, so far I love it.
  23. Ideal mineral sunscreen


    After the success I had with the original hydrating sunscreen I was really excited to try out this one since I have sensitive skin. The main pros is that there is no visible white cast, sinks into the skin relatively quickly and is not irritating at all. The negative is that it is too matte for my dry skin, but that is just personal preference.
  24. must have


    this is a must have product. feels so light weight on the skin and great on my skin that is very sensitive
  25. beautiful sunscreen but don't wear over products


    I really loved this sunscreen but I am in two minds about it. It is 50+, has a lovely matte finish and no funny smell (like some other physical sunscreen) but its quite thick and I feel like you can only put it on naked skin. If your AM skincare routine involves any sort of moisturiser or serum first then it balls up and is hard to rub in.....and don't even think if applying foundation over the to...

    This is my all time favourite, G.O.A.T, MVP, rising star...EVERYTHING favourite sunscreen! I love that it's mineral and 50+ and it's just so light. No white cast, skin is soft to touch afterwards and there is no greasy finish. I'm an oily gal, and this just forms the perfect base for my foundation and helps to mattify and keep my skin looking fresh all day! Even if you're not oily, I think it woul...

  27. The best sunscreen!


    I can honestly say this is the best sunscreen I have tried! I usually use La Roche-Posay Anthelios (Chemical sunscreen) but I noticed my pigmentation was getting worse. Chemical sunscreens absorb the UV rays, converts the rays into the heat and release which can aggravate and worsen pigmentation. I was on the hunt for a physical sunscreen and came across Ultra Violette Lean Screen. I was a bit hes...

  28. Best physical sunscreen for sensitive/acne prone skin


    I have been trying to find a high spf physical only sunscreen for my sensitive and acne prone skin that doesn’t have fragrance or too many ingredients, but most leave an awful white cast and are really thick. This is an absolute lifesaver! I finally have a sunscreen that my skin doesn’t react: breakout to and doesn’t leave a thick white cast! Thank you so much Ultra Violette!
  29. Good sunscreen


    Great sunscreen. I’m genuinely obsessed with this brand and have tried all of the sunscreens. This one is super nice and I always reach for it!
  30. Wanted to love but it’s a no from me :(


    I was SO looking forward to trying this but unfortunately UV have missed the mark with lean screen. Causes extreme pilling of skincare products, I even tried with a simple moisturiser left to sink in for 10 mins and still pilled! I’ll be going back to my trusty ol’ supreme screen which plays a lot nicer with skincare and never pills!
  31. Wanted to love it, but...


    This product is great in many ways - its zinc based, 50+ and no white cast.

    However, if I have any other product on my skin e.g. serum, moisturiser, then I found it will clump and ball. Therefore I can only use it if I layer it on top of other products - which is not ideal as I like to moisturise or add a serum first.

    Sadly, I will not purchase again.
  32. Didn’t work for me


    I was excited for a zinc based sunscreen by this brand. It says it rubs in clear... however for my pale skin it left a muddy tint and there is a clear difference between my face and neck. Also... I’ve applied on clean skin, over serums (let it sink in), patted it in, rubbed it gently but it still clumps/pills on my face and on my clean fingers. I’ve had no success with this sunscreen, nor their pr...

    I now own all of the Ultra Violette sunscreen products (im not joking..) and this is now my one and only!!!!

    The others just couldn't get me through the day without my shininess coming through by lunchtime. I honestly nearly didn't purchase this one because I felt like the others were a bit of a let down in the "lasting all day" department, but I am so glad I did! It keeps my face ma...

  34. Summer staple for oily skins!


    I was so excited to try this new product from UV! As an oily/combo skin girl, it's been a journey to try and find an SPF50 that won't have my face looking like it could fry an egg before even getting to the beach.

    I live in Melbourne so there hasn't been a day yet where the weather has been over 30 degrees but I have used this when i've gone on a walk where the weather has been over ...

  35. Pills easily


    I was really looking forward to this release cause I LOVE Clean Screen but sometimes get the white cast that comes with a physical.

    But I’m pretty disappointed.

    This gets points for not having that white cast and is 50+ instead of 30+ but looses points because if you have anything on underneath like serum or moisturiser it pills so easily!!! You must carefully pat on th...

  36. Amazing!!!


    Unlike any other mineral 50+ I’ve ever used. I’ve got sensitive and dry skin, but with a moisturiser underneath this wasn’t drying or very mattifying at all. A satin finish and not at all greasy Or thick. Sinks right in.
  37. New fav


    My new fav sunscreen by ultra violette. I have sensitive rosacea and acne prone skin and have been waiting for the release of a 50+ physical sunscreen! Doesn’t leave a white cast and rubs in easily. Recommend if you have easily upset skin
  38. Best physical sunscreen out there


    Ok, as a redhead I am a certified sunscreen obsessive and have at least five on the go at any given time in my search for ‘the one’.
    I especially wanted to see how this stacked up against Invisible Zinc’s Sheer Defence 50+ tinted, as I reckon that’s the closest current thing on the market.
    The verdict? This is better. Nice texture, good colour. It’s matte as opposed to sheer and shiny ...

  40. Lovely zinc sunscreen, no white cast on olive skin


    After previously trying UV's Clean Screen and it having left a white/grey cast on my light/medium neutral olive skin (great finish just too noticeable of a cast on me), I was a bit apprehensive to try this new one. This one is fantastic. It has a mousse-cream texture that leaves a demi-matte finish which doesn't get greasier as the day goes on. With past zinc sunscreens I felt I was sweating under...

  41. Balled up my skin care products


    I’m glad I tried this on the weekend or I’d have been late for work. I use several skin care products before applying sunscreen and this new one from UViolette completely balled up all of my skin care. It went on like a thickish soft paste and while it seemed to rub in alright that process was a skin care products disaster. It also managed to gather into balls and flakes some skin around my nose. ...

    This is the best sunscreen I have used!! I have finally found my holy grail sunscreen. I’ve tried every sunscreen (even the most hyped/pricey) and this does not compare. I’ve been looking for a sunscreen that is fragrance free and doesn’t have Alcohol Denat as this can be so irritating for me and I came across the Lean Screen.

    Best for dry skin as it is moisturising. I love that it l...

  43. My new fav sunscreen


    I just LOVE this sunscreen. I bought two, one for me one for my husband and we are both really impressed. My husband works outside all day and has felt really protected. I have sensitive skin and it does not irritate or break me out. I like that it sits on the skin quickly and dries matte. I do feel like I need to let my moisturizer sit on my skin for a little while before I put it on otherwise it...

  44. Velvet Heaven


    I was already a huge fan of the Ultra Violette range, but my oily skin meant I was beyond excited to try their first matte finish product.
    I was a little worried at first when it was pumped out of the tube as very thick and heavy to the touch, although there ended up being no need for concern. The sunscreen was quickly absorbed and left a finish that was velvet in appearance and touch. Not ...
