Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I recently purchased this product through this website. Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50.nIt's supposed to work with oily skin in humid environments. I live in FL. First it seems like you have to use a lot to cover your face. Secondly, it makes my face oilier and the product does NOT stick to my skin. I actually had sunburn while wearing this product - which never happened before with your sunblock.nI'm not sure if this product was defective or it does not do what it's supposed to.! I had always had excellent experience with your products and would not use any other sunblock until now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't feel matte to me... I think this is an effective sunscreen, but it's not my favorite. The tint works well with my complexion but it feels oily, not matte to me and it doesn't seem to dry to a matte finish after application. In fact, I have to shake the tube or the product will come out separated with a thin, clear, and oily-feeling substance, then the tinted sunscreen. I much prefer the Sheer Physical Defense sunscreen and I won't be getting this again. If you have very dry skin this might work for you but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with oily skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice, but smells I have purchased this sunscreen twice. The first time - a 5 star rating! The second purchase - the smell is awful! I think it is just the bottle I happened to get, the smell is so bad that it keeps me from wanting to use it! It doesn’t smell like sunscreen, but more of a dead animal smell!! Also, another negative is that it seems like I have to use a lot of it to get coverage. Otherwise, this is a flawless coverage with a matte look once it dries. I use this rather than foundation b/c it is better than any foundation I’ve used!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This stuff is really potent and not greasy whatsoever. I use it daily, even in the winter, and never find this to make my skin oily or greasy. The only downfall of this is that it doesn't blend well. It leaves my dark skin with a white cast and settles around my nose and around my eyebrows. I really have to make the time to massage it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sunscreen!!! This sunscreen is the best sunscreen I have ever tried. I have oily, acne-prone skin, that tends to be very sensitive and red. This is the only sunscreen I've used that did not make me oily, did not have that awful sunscreen smell, and did not break me out! It makes my skin so smooth and the slight tint helps even out my skin. It doesn't make my face red at all and it works well under my makeup or alone. Totally love this, so glad I found it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love Skinceuticals brand because the quality is so high and I never need to worry about the ingredients causing me to break out (I have very sensitive skin). My dermatologist suggested this to me, since proper sun protection is essential in today's day and age, but I need something that won't make my skin more oily or clog my pores. This does the trick!! It's a great way to layer sunscreen in my daily makeup routine, and even helps a bit with adding a matte finish (although doesn't replace other mattifying products). The only cons would be that it's a small size for the high cost, and it doesn't spread/blend as easily as I would like. But it's still a good product, and I will continue to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunscreen for Oily Skin Sunscreen is a must if you have blemishes from acne. However it can be difficult to find something that isn't so oily that you look like a shiny mess! This is sunscreen does the job. I've purchased several sunscreens that claim to be a matte finish but end up leaving an oily sticky feeling. Not this one, this baby will give you the protection you need without the greasy feeling. I will keep buying forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great matte finish I recently bought this one prescribed by my dermatologist and I really like it so much. First time I use it I was a little concern about the color but it blends perfect and is really a matte finish which is great. Also is very light, once you applied it you won’t feel it anymore. This is my favorite everyday face sunscreen, and the size is perfect to carry on my purse.
