        At first I was a little put off by the color but this is the ONLY sunscreen that didnt break me out, didnt run and didnt make my pores feel clogged by the end of the day. I freakin' love this stuff!! I'm very fair and not once have I burned with this on, as with most other sunscreens. Its long wearing and somehow makes my skin look just more even and better.

        I wish this didn't irritate my skin, because the finish isn't oily like other sunscreens. It feels nice to apply, and leaves a not-oily but not-too-matte finish- it's perfect. However, each time I used it, my skin broke out with small blemishes. I even tested it a few times just to make sure it was the Photo Plasma and not another product. Really disappointed as now I can't even use it!

        I have hypersensitive skin. I was previously using Sunday Riley's products, but realized my face could not handle the irritation from all of the essential oils! I still wanted the glow those products gave me, so I tried this photo plasma. I am so happy I did... My father thought I had makeup on when I wore this, but I had zero on! My redness has subsided, my skin has a glow, lightened my dark circles, and it fills in fine lines. I am going to try their other oil-free moisturizers from this line to find one suitable for the nighttime. If this one didn't have spf, I would wear it at night as well. I would also like to add that I wish people would stop complaining about scents. Fragrances hurt us sensitive folk and we prefer them to not to be in products!

          I'm a male and this sunscreen works&looks great on my face. It doesn't have strong pigments but it's a good thing, because you end up with a fresh look. The finish is very matte, a natural shine. I use it after my treatments and whenever I'm wearing it, people tell me how healthy my skin looks and ask me how I take care of it. The only negative part is that only sometimes it feels greasy, but not too much. I have a sensitive skin and doesn't irritate at all.

            I've always had trouble finding a perfect sunscreen. After many years of searching, and way more than a few dozen failed attempts, I've only found a couple serviceable options that weren't great but did the job. This sunscreen, however, I find myself talking about it to anyone who will listen. Why? Because I have a very thick beard, have light-olive skin tone, am very sensitive to fragrance, and am very prone to clogged-pores. So, basically every sunscreen is greasy and stinky and makes me breakout and makes me look like a ghost, and tinted sunscreens make me look like I'm sunburnt — it's a nightmare. However, this stuff (Photo Plasma) is almost unbelievable how throughly we'll-executed it is. It's pink in the jar (like salmon cream cheese) but it disappears on the skin almost instantly, yet it stays in place for hours. It doesn't smell noticeably, it leaves firm slightly moist but not oily texture on the face, and my face also has an ever so faint "sheen" to it without looking like a polished marble, far from. And sweat will bead up on top of it rather than causing everything to run down my face... I know it has lots of amazing actives in it, but I also use lots of amazing actives (alternatingly) in the evening, so the cumulative effect has been great yet not particularly traceable to this product. However what I cannot stop noticing is how comprehensively non-offensive yet also utterly competent this product is... I bought it on a holiday special, and wish I'd ordered a few more, although to be honest, at full price it's about a dollar a day of usage, and to have everything be so simple and streamlined and stress-free, it's definitely worth full price for when i need to restock, and I'll keep my eyes peeled for sales...

              This is my favorite daily SPF moisturizer, hands down. It is the only chemical-free sunscreen that doesn't give me a white cast. The texture is so creamy and whipped, it's luxurious to put on my skin. I've tried other non-chemical moisturizing sunscreen and keep coming back to this one. It's worth every penny!

                  I am 50 and have have a skin condition that causes small circular patches of dry skin that crack and bleed on my face. My first spots appeared after the birth of my first child when I was 21. I have used prescription creams and steroids with some relief. Until now, I have never found anything that worked well without side effects. I have not had a single dry spot since I've started using this product. NOT ONE! I am not sure what is different than the hundreds of others I have tried but I will never use anything else! My skin looks and feels fantastic! My only complaint is that I did not find it sooner!!

                    I love this product. Unlike many other moisturizers with SPF(i.e. Kate Somerville SPF 50 moisturizer), this product is light enough that it won't leave any white traces or it won't slough off from you skin.

                    However, like all the other products from Perricone MD, this moisturizer needs better packaging! I never dropped the jar or traveled with it, but the lid somehow broke (the plastic cracked open). It looks like MANY of perricone md's products are contained in extremely fragile and poor packaging. I've used many products that are contained in glassware such as Darphin, and never had any problems. It looks like Perricone MD uses cheap plastic and glassware for their containers, and due to this reason, items easily break or pumps don't work properly. It's too bad because their products itself are great! Please pay more attention for packaging going forward. Because of this broken container, I had to scoop out all the moisturizers and put it in an empty Darphin glass container.

                      I have been loyal to this as my daily SPF for years. I lived in SoCal and needed high potency yet non greasy moisturizer for daily protection. This is hands down the best for my skin. It's pricey but a little goes a long way and I'll gladly pay now to prevent future sun damage. Don't change a thing, this is the best!
