Rated 5 out of 5 by from SPF for your face with a surprising tint I am in love with this product! I do not wear foundation on my face because it feels heavy and this product is perfect & light to my surprise. I am 51 years old and do have some sun spots on my face from sun tanning over the years and this gives just the right amount of color. I got a convertible recently and went searching for a good SPF face sunscreen for the days that I have my top down. I read the other reviews on this and was sold & I am glad I did. It does not feel greasy at all and almost leaves a smooth velvety feeling and I like that, I put a little loose powder over it and it is just like a light foundation almost. It seems to stay on very well even when I sweat and it does not take a lot to cover with either. The tube is reasonably a good size and should last for a while. I will be making this a permanent part of my sun protection from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS DOUBLES AS A PRIMER! I'm never buying another primer, and I've tried them all, drugstore to high end. This keeps my makeup looking great all day and night. Since finding this product I haven't even skipped a cloudy indoor day (yes, I now know that you are supposed to wear sunscreen everyday and indoors, and I didn't until I found this (always too greasy, tacky or white). This is tinted just enough to not make me look like a clown, and blurs imperfections slightly. Absolutely no stinging, and I put it around my eyes. I bought 2 more backup tubes for fear that I will be without, even though I can't imagine going through one tube anytime soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This could be a hg product This is an incredible feeling and performing sunscreen. I have dry skin so I have to prep with my winter skincare routine so it doesn't matte down too much. It doesn't settle into my neck lines. It feels so luxurious. BUT I am also very pale and this is way to dark for me. I have tried mixing it with a non tinted spf fifty and it does change the feel and performance some. If you have a medium skin tone this is the most perfect sunscreen ever. I literally grieve over not being able to use this. I tried the botanical body spf fifty because they have almost the same ingredient deck. It has a similar wonderful feel but it has a very overpowering smell that does not dissipate. So my search continues. Australian gold if you read your reviews please make a couple more shade options for this and other wish list wants....keep fragrance free and for dry skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from generally like it but won't repurchase I really like this tinted sunscreen. The consistency is easy to apply and it has just enough tint to counteract the white tint that you get with mineral sunscreens. However this sunscreen has alumina as the first ingredient and while I realize that the verdict is still out on the link between aluminum oxide and alzheimer's, I'm not willing to put something on the largest organ of my body (skin) that is linked to alzheimer's disease (especially since I put this on my face). If the product were reformulated without the alumina, I would definitely reconsider purchasing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish This is a great sunscreen that's actually affordable for everyday use. I almost bought the Cotz brand instead, but that one is more expensive for less product. The ingredients, tint, application are awesome. Thanks for making it affordable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect! If this came in an un-tinted variety I would be a customer for life. This is an amazing affordable facial sunscreen that has everything I could possibly want with the exception of the color. I'm pale skinned so I *can* wear this but I'm not a makeup/foundation person so for me I feel like I'm wearing a face full of makeup. I will continue to wear it until I find a suitable non-tinted substitute. I do feel that this is a little drying which is a super minor complaint I can live with because I wear it over my usual moisturizer. Please please please make a version of this product but without the tint!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eucalyptus stings skin I never expected a 100% mineral sunscreen to sting. I literally checked all ingredients, and are good or great except eucalyptus leaf extract. OMG , it stings and turns my face red for the first drew seconds. So much it hurts that I dread application and have to take a deep breath. I know this is not good for my skin. In all other respects, the formulas is just perfect. Please get rid of eucalyptus! I don't know what to do, i was so excited i purchased 5 tubes!!!!! I would return if i could

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful matte finish This stuff is what I've been looking for forever. A non-chemical waterproof sunscreen that spreads easily, with a very slight tint to compensate for the zinc so you don't look white. No shine. I use this every day as a stand alone product on my face. No makeup or other moisturizer required. It is almost invisible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! I have been searching, for years, for the perfect facial sun protection for my extremely sensitive and rosacea prone skin. Feels comfortable, nice finish and no "hot flashes" or breakouts. This is second to none and, believe me, I have tried them all. Thank you Australian Gold!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best physical face sunscreen! Love, love, love this! I usually wear chemical sunscreens on my face because physical ones always end up making my skin filmy and flakey and dry even with moisturizer.Well not this one! It has shea butter listed in it and some lovely natural ingredients. It blends so well and the tint counteracts any whiteness unlike alot of other physical sunblocks. It's velvety and just wonderful! This is the only physical sunblock I can wear on my face. I apply a light layer of moisturizer followed by this. A definite keeper!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turns me orange I had been using the Botanical Lotion on both face and body, but I didn't like the fragrance so I decided to try the Face version. It turns orange on my skin, much worse than the minimal white cast from the Body version, and broke me out besides. I don't know what ingredient is in the face version that isn't in the body version, but I'm stuck with a nearly full tube I can't use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for florida Finally a sunscreen with no compromise. No smell, no white cast, mattifies my skin so it looks beautiful under my makeup. Doesn't clog my pores either. I'm a Florida girl so i really put sunscreen to the test. Glad I ordered 2 because it's hard to find in stores. This is a must have for face

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best facial sunscreen I've ever used! This is the best! Has a little color to it and works great alone or under makeup! Will definitely be a forever user!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search is over!! This stuff is fantastic. Works well on it's own and is the BEST primer for under any makeup. I am 57 and don't mess around with inferior sunscreens. I have very dry skin so I do use a moisturizer under this but this has caused no problems for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful facial sunscreen! I have rosacea and extremely sensitive fair complected combination skin. I was using a mineral sunscreen that my personal dermatologist manufactured, and had been happily using it for years. I went to buy it and was told they no longer made it! I was in a quandary as most facial sunscreens were too greasy or just made my face sting and turn red. I read an article titled "Best Mineral Sunscreens for Sensitive Skin" and this one was mentioned. I thought, what do I have to lose? I ordered the tinted mineral sunscreen in June 2017, and have literally used it every single day since. Yes, it's tinted but it looks as great on me midwinter as it did midsummer. It dries powdery, but not tight. I love it, and with my sensitive skin, that is really saying something! If you have sensitive skin, you have to try this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this sunscreen!! My husband and I went on a cruise, and while I was unpacking I realized I forgot my face sunscreen. The AG Botanical was available in the gift shop, so I bought it. I am still using this sunscreen every day - no more foundation or other goopy face products. I put this on over my moisturizer and it makes my skin look wonderful. I am actually really happy that I forgot my other sunscreen (which I promptly dumped when I got home) because this makes my skin feel so soft, and I no longer worry if my makeup sunscreen is strong enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way to Go! I have used many Australian Gold products over the years as they have evolved, but this by far is my favorite for a few reasons! I love the slight tint, it goes on smooth and is non greasy, and, it offers awesome protection so I don’t burn! I love love love ❤️ it! Thank you Australian Gold for an awesome product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more searching I found this last summer at Bed Bath & Beyond and couldn’t believe my luck! Ordered two tubes this year from this site. It’s my favorite sunscreen ever. Goes on sooo smoothly. Gives my pale skin some color without looking orange. Very natural. I don’t just use it on my face, I use it everywhere. No whiteness, no lines. Also, it doesn’t have that usual sunscreen smell. Please do not discontinue or change the formula! Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be great..Please make more color/undertones! This goes on better than any mineral sunscreen I have ever used- nice, fluffy, and light , no perfume. Dies not sting my eyes so it's easy to apply. For my fairly light to medium skin, it's not too dark. The problem is the tint is too pink. This would be a home run if they offered options with a yellow undertone (or at least neutral beige undertone) as well as some medium to dark shades for people with medium to dark skin. Since the tint is pretty darn sheer I think they could even get away with a TRUE UNIVERSAL TINT which could be 3 shades: neutral light, neutral medium and neutral dark. At the very least I'm hoping they will reconsider the current one shade and compare it to true nuetral skin tones just take so they can see where to tone the pink down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cost Effective Face Sunscreen To begin, I have acne prone sensitive skin with some dry areas.This product has helped prevented me from breaking out due to the fact that it is a mineral sunscreen and has gentler ingredients. I love that it is at such an affordable price point and you can find it at CVS or Amazon if you live in the United States. It is also high in SPF so you know that your skin will be protected from the sun. I have not gotten sunburnt from this at all! I would recommend applying a hydrating facial cream then the Australian Gold face sunscreen since using the sunscreen on its own does leave my skin feeling dry. This is considered a tinted moisturizer, but it does not leave my skin looking like another color. Simply, it makes my skin look smoother and gives me a glow. I have used this sunscreen EVERYDAY since May of last year and I still have a decent amount left. It will probably last me another month or so! I also travel during the year and the 3 ounce bottle is perfect to pack as a carry on item. Although 3 ounces sounds like a small amount, a little bit of this stuff goes a long way! The company’s mission in creating an environmentally conscience product that is affordable along with its formula geared toward those with sensitive skin are reasons why I decided to give this product a try to begin with. I have already gotten another bottle since this stuff is like GOLD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent facial sunscreen This is awesome!. It has just enough tint to make your skin look nice, the coverage is matte and stays on all day. I love the high spf 50.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but... First impression was great, no greasy feeling, no cast. Unfortunately it ended up being very drying and difficult to rinse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoothes Over Pores! This sunscreen is simply the best. I like to layer sunscreen so I use this as a top coat. It plays very well on top of my other sunscreen. I was afraid that the tint would be too dark however the formula completely disappears. It even smoothes the appearance of fine lines and diminishes the size of my pores. I have combination skin and it does not make me look oily. Never discontinue this sunscreen, please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Been using the Botanical SPF 50 tinted sunscreen for about a month. I use about a 1/4-1/2 teaspoon everyday. It works great under my makeup and has worked well. I just returned from a cruise and while I wasn't sun bathing, I was in the sun and I'm happy to report no sunburned nose. A plus is it covers minor redness. I'm very happy with the sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect sunscreen! I have vitiligo and need to wear a physical spf 50 daily. After trying about 12 different brands this is my favorite, hands down! It's not greasy, it's not irritating and I know it's effective because with other sunscreens my patches of vitiligo burn and turn pink. Not so with this one, I feel confident again because of this amazing sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No breakouts! I love this sunscreen! My holy grail, go-to SPF. It goes on smooth, blends in natural looking (no white pasty look like with most suncreens) and dries to a semi matte finish. Stayed on for 2 hours of swimming, but came off completely with my face cleanser. Normally sunscreen breaks me out...but I experienced no breakouts with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever! I tried this sunscreen when I used a friend’s on vacation. I knew instantly I had to get my own tube. This sunscreen has a beautiful silky and light texture and totally lets the skin breathe. The light tint also provides perfect coverage of imperfections like age spots. And of course it works like a charm to block out the sun. All this without any harmful chemical ingredients. Last but not least, the price is very reasonable. I will never use another sunscreen for my face again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stuff! I have been using this product for two years and love it. It does not irritate my rosacea - prone skin. In fact, it seems to calm the redness down. The tint blends into my own skin tone and leaves it smooth yet not greasy. In addition, it stays put all day long. Finally, the price is unbeatable. Amazing stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels Great Works Great I saw this reviewed on Hotandflashy50. I'm so happy I bought it! It's fantastic. Using it in hot and high humidity weather, this product went on smooth and never got tacky, sticky or greasy. The matte finish is wonderful and using it under my minerals foundation was perfect. User for life. Please don't change it.
