Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS !! I've been using this since I learn how much the sun damages your skin. I love the scent as it isn't too overpowering. It is great under foundation and doesn't make it blotchy. It doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the skin and a little does go a long way. I can't wait to try the new mecca sunscreen but for now I will stick with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No sunscreen smell or oiliness I’ve used this product for about a year, with a moisturiser in winter but on its own under make up in summer. It’s my favourite facial sunscreen. It doesn’t irritate my eyes, unlike many others, and it feels nice and light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! I use this as a primer under my make-up and as a regular sun cream. It lasts a long time too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sunscreen This sunscreen is amazing! It has such a nice texture and sits nicely under make up. It smells nice and clean without being overbearing and it provides a good amount of sun protection. Great for everyday use!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit oily I am generally not a fan of sunscreens since it always clogs my pores and I always get breakouts so this was the same. I usually use it under my makeup or even by itself, and find that its pretty oily, so not that great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best hydrating sunscreen I have used! I first got a sample of this at one of the MECCA stores to try out, because I was on a lookout for a really good hydrating sunscreen but usually sunscreen will leave my skin feeling really oily and after a few hours my makeup will start looking patchy and uneven. So I was recommended this one after explaining my concern and what I have at home. I have combo skin and I am using La Mer gel moisturizer because I feel a bit tight after I use the moisturizer so I was looking for something that adds a bit hydration to my skin like a hydrating sunscreen. I have to say the combination of La Mer moisturizer (gel), and the sunscreen, as well as my Sunday Reiley good gene serum, my makeup is looking fresh longer and I don't need to touch up that often and I am extremely happy with the combination and the sunscreen in particular. I will be buying the 100ml soon when it is back in stock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! Super lightweight I use this product every morning, and have loved it straight from the start! I live in Townsville where it is super hot and humid, and most facial moisturisers tend to sweat straight off my face as soon as I walk outside. This product has lived up to the hot and humid test, and plus it is SPF30 rather than most facial moisturisers which are SPF15 - so you get that extra bit of protection from the sun's damaging rays! It also has a very pleasant fragrance to it, nothing overwhelming, but just adds to the freshness of this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in every way. I absolutely love this. I love how it can be used as a make-up primer and that it has really good SPF. It smells beautiful and glides onto the skin effortlessly. It is a wonderful make-up base and very protective of the skin. It's a must have!

Can this be used on its own without a moisturiser underneath? I have normal/combination skin. 

Asked by: Wyndola
I have dry skin and I believe it is hydrating enough to be used without moisturiser.

What order should To Save Face be used in the morning skincare routine along with moisturiser and serum?

Asked by: Ann Lou
Because To Save Face is a chemical based sunscreen, it is said that chemical based sunscreens should be applied first right after cleansing/toning. The chemicals have to react with you skin that is why it is applied first, after sunscreen I would then apply my morning serum and then follow up with my moisturiser to lock everything into place. :) hope that helps xx

Is this a chemical or physical sunscreen? Thanks!

Asked by: katelynmaree11
To Save Face 30+ is a chemical sunscreen - for physical sunscreens, look for ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Physical sunscreens actually deflect the sun's rays, which is amazing, but which sometimes can result in a white cast or 'flash back' with flash photography. Physical sunscreens can also cause breakouts in oily or acne prone skin. Keep in mind that titanium dioxide does not protect against all UVA rays - zinc oxide protects against UVA and UVB. Chemical sunscreens absorb into the skin and neutralise the sun's rays before they can do their damage - this can sometimes cause allergic reactions or sensitivity in some skin types. However, chemical sunscreens are generally (and To Save Face definitely is!) broad spectrum, and do not leave a white cast, but you will need to wait at least 20 minutes before you expose yourself to any sunlight after applying.

Is this product water resistant? If so, for how long?

Asked by: Madelynne

Your store indicated this product is gluten free along with Lano Rose Hand Creme. The hand cream definitely is not. Would you please confirm - I have coeliac disease and need to be certain. Thank you
