Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great texture, bad tint This sunscreen is amazing in terms of texture and finish, it is the only mineral sunscreen I've been able to find that's truly mattifying and stays matte (and I've tried many), but the tint is just off, even the new fair to light one is still too dark and pink/orange. We NEED an ivory tint. Trust me, no light skinned person wants to be walking around with a pink/orange face as if they were constantly blushing. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stuff I have been using this for about 6 months now purchases from Ulta. The finish is beautiful, but most importantly it lasted in direct sunlight in ninety degree heat for the entire sunburn! Minus one star only because it has been impossible to put any sort of makeup over this. I just want a little under eye concealer and maybe some other spots of concealer, but I've tried several types and the sunscreen bunches up into this awful cakey mess. Foundation does the same. Really sad I can't use this all year round as my sunscreen due to this issue!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is IT This is THE best face sunscreen hands down. Light weight, tinted, blurs/ smoothes skin, water resistant, and matte without being drying on the skin. This is also the only face spf I’ve ever used that actually sets, meaning it stays put. Every other spf I’ve used feels greasy and moves around on my skin. The only thing is because it’s water resistant/ sets on your skin. You need to wash it off well. I recommend first using a balm/ oil to break it down and then using a gel face wash to wash it all off. I also recommend moisturizing well before putting this on(: Please never change this formula!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Benefit PoreFessional primer -bestEVR! I'm 37 and I'm starting to get some fine lines and enlarged pores. I also have terrrrible melasma Mask of Pregnancy, that started from the Pill before I even had a baby. Also very pale and freckled = high risk for skin cancer. I loved IT Cosmetics CC cream, but it's very "make-upy" if that's a word. I wanted to look natural and effortless. Especially for "no-makeup" days, I needed some blurring and tone-balancing but didn't want to look like I had studio makeup on! I also needed high SPF and something more mattifying to not draw attention to my pores and lines. BUT I also get DRY. This alone isn't moisturizing enough for me, esp in winter, but if I moisturize well enough before, I can absolutely wear this just fine. I used to love Benefit Porefessional primer, but it dried me out so bad - I looked 70 when I'd smile. AND it didn't have SPF. I'm beyond-words-in-love with this stuff. So with this, I get the "benefit" of the Porefessional primer, PLUS the SPF of the IT CC, for like 1/10th of the price? Less than 1/10th maybe? I've tried A LOT of primers over the years - Smashbox, Mac, Laura Geller, Too Faced Hangover, THIS sunscreen is better at blurring, tone-evening. I actually do really like using BECCA Skin Love primer before this when I wanna be fancy - just makes me look AMAZING - especially on camera, in Zoom, in photos. It also plays nicely with the few foundations I've tried - no pilling, no weirdness at all. Of all the pricey products tho, again the Drug Store product, NYX Born to Glow foundation, looks STUNNING on top this "primer" we'll call it. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really like this, but it is only ~10-16 SPF Given how SPF determination is made, Zinc Oxide only provides about 1.6 x % coverage SPF, and Titanium Dioxide 2.6 x % coverage SPF. Per scientific standard, Zinc and Titanium combined provide coverage against UVB, UVA2, UVA1 radiation, and 5% each gives a SPF of about 12-19. This product only contains 4% of each mineral, meaning this item is GROSSLY overrated in sun protection factor, with it likely containing around SPF 10. Way too little protection to rely on this as a sunscreen. You definitely need a true sunscreen, not this masquerading product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from To orange These BB cream/sunscreens are to orange for my face. I really wish the manufacturers would start making the original tinted face formula they used to have. Iv used the original for years.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from New formula, NOT THE SAME! Why would you change the formula on a best seller? Why? Used to be perfect. Blows my mind how companies can’t see the forest for the trees. Smh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The search is over! I live in the hot humid subtropical climate and have been struggling finding a sunscreen with matte finish. Even the ones labeled "matte finish" and/or "oil absorbing" did not pass the test. I came across Australian Gold Botanical sunscreen by accident. I loved the ingredient list (and the price!!!) and decided to give it a go and Oh, I am so glad I did! I love everything about this product! Physical UV philters do not irritate my skin and I am able to apply it all over my face (under my eyes and my eyelids) and my neck. SPF 50 provides adequate sun protection. The product doesn't peel or ball even after reapplying. The tint is very light and blends perfectly with my pale complexion. Fragrance free formula makes it suitable for sensitive skin and as I mentioned before I love matte finish. And it is cruelty free! Thank you, Australian Gold, for a great sunscreen!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3+ years using this sunscreen! The product itself is great. Dries down matte, doesn't budge, uses UV protectants that don't irritate sensitive skin--what's not to love? The tint. If you're below an NC30 skin tone, definitely hesitate before buying this sunscreen. I've been using this sunscreen for over 3 years now and the tint has just never been flattering on my NC15 skin. I was so hopeful when they introduced the 3 different shades that the problem would be resolved, but the Fair to Light shade dries down even darker than my old original one-shade-fits all bottles. While this sunscreen would be a godsend for anyone with skin over a NC30, that gaudy orange hue prevents me from recommending this to anyone pale. That said, I've been looking for another holy grail sunscreen to replace this one and I just can't get away. The texture can't be beat by any other mineral sunscreen I've found. When it comes down to it, this sunscreen is a fantastic formula, just PLEASE introduce a lighter shade for all my easily-burnable baddies out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sunscreen - wish it was fragrance-free! I love this sunscreen, it has a light tint, absorbs well, protects my skin, and survives my intense cardio workouts. I love that it has a natural skin like finish and makes an excellent primer for my foundation. the only reason it got 3 stars is because of the fragrance, which I find very irritating, I wish it was fragrance-free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best SPF My waxer recommended this to me, and I absolutely love it! The color is perfect for me, the texture is like velvet or powder, and it doesn't make me break out. This doesn't feel greasy, look shiny, or smell like normal sunscreen. I used to refuse to wear SPF daily before I discovered this, but I wear this one every single now. I don't even wear makeup anymore. It's my new holy grail!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not great I had the hardest time finding this anywhere, so I ordered from the website. Overall, I was disappointed in it and it to be not what I would expect a BB cream to be. It's just a tinted lotion that seemed to be very drying to the skin. It didn't blend well at all. The color I ordered was the lightest as I am very light skinned and it looked really bad. I won't buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever I absolutely love this product. I was really worried about how it would look on me because I have very fair skin. It is difficult to find the right match when it comes foundations and BB creams. This one is perfect. My daughter who has a much darker complexion then I do had used it and it looks great. Very happy with the product and will be buying again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Please change packaging This is my favorite product I been using for years BUT tube is covered with cheap paint and after 2 weeks this paint starts pilling and ends up on hands and face! This is the only reason I gave 3 stars to this wonderful product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Orange I bought this because Australian Gold discontinued the Kids Botanical SPF 50 sunscreen, and the normal Botanical sunscreen smells like a dirty bathroom. This one is extremely orange toned and dark, even though my skin isn't even that fair. It also looks like a super thick, cakey foundation even upon initial application. I wish Australian Gold would just bring back the fragrance free non-tinted botanical sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't ever stop making this! Love the light tint and soft feel of this sunscreen. Having an autoimmune disease that make me extremely sun sensitive this is a wonderful product. And, it is great that there is no fragrance, it is neutral.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like everything except the tint This sunscreen is great for managing oiliness without drying out my skin. I also love that the description clearly identifies this product as vegan. However, the Fair-Light option is barely light enough for me to get away with wearing. I used to wear the kid's botanical sunscreen lotion on my face, since it was fragrance free and untinted. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find it anywhere lately. Until I find a comparable sunscreen without tint, I'll probably continue using this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Thrilled to find this product. Not greasy, sticky or sickly white. I love It! The color is perfect for me. Can use on eyes with no irritation. Amazing sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works beautifully! Fair skinned blonde - I love this product. Tint is great for my color complexion. Not orange at all. Will purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite tinted sunscreen I love this - I was looking for a more affordable alternative to the supergoop matte screen because I was getting tired of paying nearly $50 for 1.5 oz, and this is it. I live in NM, so I take sunscreen very seriously! It also stays on better than supergoop - so on days where I don't mind spending a little extra time washing my face at the end of the day (takes a little more effort to get it off, which I think is a good thing), I use this. The tint works fine for me - I'm pretty pale skinned - but in the winter I could probably use a lighter tint. It dries down matte, but not dull, It feels so nice going on, and it's moisturizing. No smell to it really. I love it! I wish this tint wasn't sold out because I want to stock up!! I heard about this from Cassandra Bankson's YouTube channel and I'm very glad I did. Keeps me from getting burned on hot sunny days, doesn't irritate my skin or eyes. I have a combo of oil and dry skin, with hormonal acne, and this does not make my problems worse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this sunscreen! It's the only one I've found that doesn't make me look orange. I wish it played a little better under makeup, but it's perfect for those no makeup days when I just need a little evening out. I can always count on it to make my skin feel better when my rosacea is being troublesome or when I've abused my skin with other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunscreen Ever! I have bought this sunscreen three times, among others. This one is by far my favorite! It looks great with or without makeup, isn't shiny, and doesn't have a strong fragrance. This sunscreen makes my skin look amazing-I haven't worn foundation in months! Way to go Australian Gold!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too dark!!! This would be my all time favorite sunscreen if it weren't so dark!! I have fair skin and look way too orange after putting this on. It's perfect for my oily skin though, so if they ever launch a lighter shade I will try it. This could very well have been my holy grail sunscreen!
Date published: 2022-01-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! I use this every spring and summer daily. It's very easy to spread and even though the lightest tint is a bit too dark I just mix it with a white spf to get the perfect shade for me. I love that it's texture is very smooth but not heavy for this high of an spf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunscreen is awesome I love that it is tinted..I have both light and dark tint... It's doesn't have a oily feel to it..I don't even need to wear face makeup... No white chalky look like a lot of sunscreens have.. I have been using sunscreen for 40 years and this is the best...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST sunscreen ever I am on my third tube of this sunscreen. It is the only one I've found to be non greasy, last a long time, and have an awesome natural finish. That's really difficult to find in a mineral sunscreen. Please don't ever ever discontinue this awesome sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS SUNSCREEN I'm with everyone else who says I'm hooked for life. This sunscreen has a great tint, nice matte finish, blends smoothly with my skin, and doesn't make me break out if I accidentally fall asleep with it on sometimes. Love this product.
Date published: 2021-06-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolute BEST mineral tinted SPF! I tried every single mineral tinted SPF that is cruelty free under the sun! This exceeds every single one. I love the texture and the matte finish and the fact that it is not too dark for my pale skin. I will purchase this forever
Date published: 2021-09-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like everything about it except it's undertone It's too pink for my undertone. Also, the depth is off. I'm a light-medium muted olive-ish skintone and this product in fair-light is my depth. I'd like to see this product in more undertones and depths.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tinted sunscreen I know Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50 Tinted Face, shade fair to light, is the best tinted sunscreen that I have tried. I have re-purchased this a couple of times and I will continue to do so. I am medium fair and I have combination skin (oily T zone). This a very good match for my skin tone. While it is not a perfect match - it is just a tad too warm - I can barely tell the difference. I really like that this sunscreen provides a very matte finish on me for the first two hours; after that, my natural skin oil starts to break through, and I wind up with a nice demi-matte finish for the rest of the day. This sunscreen has a mousse-y, whipped consistency, so it feels light on my skin. The only downside to this sunscreen is the downside for anything that gives a completely matte finish, which is that your skin is going to look a tiny bit lifeless whenever it is totally matte. But that's it! It is a very minor trade-off, in my book. Additional huge strengths of this product is that it is a high SPF, and you get a lot of product for a low price, especially compared to other brands.
