Isvara Organics Tinted Skin Screen SPF 25 -- 3 fl oz
Love this stuff
For years I worked at a plastic surgeons office as a medical aesthetician and the facts about the sun are really scary. Sunscreen is a must and especially for fair skin like I have. This product is wonderful because it has a light texture, goes on smooth, doesn't have much of a tint but just enough to give you a nice glow(without being sparkly) and the smell(for me) is awesome! This is one of the few products I have tried that I actually like putting on. Obviously sticking with natural products is best for your skin as well. Just make sure your skin is slightly dampened with water or toner(like Na-PCA) and a little product is all you need and it will go on better. I have normal to slightly oily skin and this is all I wear with a toner/spritz in the summer. I always receive compliments when I wear this stuff so I wear it all year!

It's a very oily tinted. Coverage is minimal and ineffective. Some oil and the rest of the lotion separate in room temperature and one has to shake it everytime one uses it so it's recommended to put it in fridge. It also causes break out. Only for very dry skin.

I like this sunscreen for its slight tint which doesn't give my face that ghostly, sticky film like some sunscreens do. I am outside all day, every day and it is effective against sun damage. I chose it for its organic qualities and am pleased that it looks good while providing the sun protection I need.

Good for the price
For a tinted, mineral sunblock, this is the lowest price I have found. It seems to go on a little oily, but turns matte if rub it in really well. I do notice if I put too much on my face looks oily. It is a little different color than my skin (I have light olive tone skin), this is a little pinker.. but it blends in well and you can't tell at all. I like to mix it with non-tinted sunblock, just because too much of it looks oily.

Good sun protection product
I get rashes if I don't wear sunblock, but I also get rashes if I use chemical sunblocks. I wore this physical sunblock yesterday when we had a sunny day and this product did not irritate my skin. It also gave me sufficient protection because I didn't get a rash from the sun rays. My only issue is the very strong herbal smell. This product has three essential oils that seem to clash for me - I love anything lavender, but not so much with patchouli. However, the strong smell dissipated after maybe 30 minutes, or I got used to it. Perhaps the oils also provide some natural preservative, so I won't complain too much. The color was a little light for my cafe au lait colored skin, but that's like most tinted moisturizers. I looked a little ashy, but nothing that some powder or bronzer can't fix. This product is a very affordable substitute for the big-name tinted moisturizers.
