Has anyone happened to have tried this product? break-outs?

Thanks! :P

Yes, I have used this for 9 months -it's great and it's a large tube. It is non-comedogenic - in fact, all her products are. Go for it.

I've read briefly on a different thread that this sunscreen IS in fact, 'greasy' ? true? [i want to be 100% before making the purchase]

thanks!

Well, they sell 2 types - for oily-combo skin AND for dry skin - I get the first one - and it will sink into your skin within 5 minutes - so it's definately not greasy, feels like a light moisteriser to me.

I just bought Paula's Choice SPF15 for Normal/Oily skin. I typically use Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer DryTouch SPF 30. I think I may have used too much of the Paula's Choice sunscreen this morning, which would explain why my face is all shiny. I will update this tomorrow after I try a little less. If it is still shiny, then I may stop using it.

Neutrogena's DryTouch leaves a matte finish more than any other product I've tried. So if Paula's Choice doesn't work out, I'll be going back to Neutrogena.

Well, it's the second day. I only used a dime-sized amount to cover my face and neck. And still shiny! However, I will probably continue to use this sunscreen for the time being. I don't want to pass judgment too quickly. Other than my face, it does absorb and leaves a matte finish on other parts (such as my neck and hands). Also, if I use Olay's Regenerist serum about half an hour after I apply the sunscreen, the shine is barely noticeable.

i used the Neutrogena DryTouch all summer and it was the BEST!
Not greasy, didn't break me out, despite all the sweat and humidity.
