Yes! I cannot believe that something with "oil" in the title would be good for acne prone skin, but it is. I use the regular argan oil at night along with my spot treatments for pimples, and it helps make everything less red. But, I love the SPF40 argan oil. I have never found a sunscreen for my face that doesn't make me break out, but this is it. It's perfect. It feels as though it will be a heavy/greasy cream, but, it just takes a minute to soak in. I just use it as my morning moisturizer, and then put on make-up.

yes--i use it under and around my eyes (under the brow). chemical sunscreens give me (literal) burns in these areas but this does not. I have a very oily T-zone and this does not make my skin any greasier. In fact, it seems less oily and more soft. I also use a drop or two of the plain argan oil with this in the morning, so I'm actually using more oil than what is in this particular product.

Yes! That's where I need the most protection, but I, too, often breakout from oily products. It seems like all sunscreens for the face are too oily, and, then, I tried this one. It seems like it would be oily because it is a thick moisturizer, but, it absorbs quicklly, and protects like nobody's business. This is the first year I have actually been good at applying sunscreen to my face, because I finally found one that works, and doesn't aggravate my skin. Go for it!

I haven't found this to be too oily unless you already have oily skin. I have combination skin and use this around my eyes since I just don't have time for multiple products.

I use this product every day and I'd say that unless you work out after you put it on or you do something that causes excessive sweating, it would last you all day just fine. Usually, if I reapply after having walked around a bit and my face is a bit sweaty, I'll dab up excess sweat with a tissue, and with one pump, it would be enough to simply "touch up" the spots that the sun would hit (like cheekbones, nose, chin, forehead, etc.), after you sweep on a bit of face powder, you're good to go! Hope that helps!

I don't find it sticky. It is a heavy cream when you feel it in your fingers, and it is a bit greasy when you put it on your face. However, it just needs to sink in for about two minutes, and then your skin is perfectly prepped for make-up--even powder. I just use this as my AM moisturizer, let it soak in for 2 minutes, and then apply my bare minerals. It's fantastic.

Not unless you have really dry skin. I have struggled to find a sunscreen for my face that wouldn't make me break out or feel too greasy, and this is perfect. The argan oil contained in the product is full of vitamin E which is a great moisturizer for the skin. I would try just using this product, and, if you then felt you needed an extra moisturizer, you could add it, but, this product alone should be sufficient.

Not really because it is a good oil for you not all are bad It can help with sebum production what that means is that it can even it out.

PLEASE, PLEASE Help!
I am desperate for some help here, some suggestions...I have combination skin - I would say combination to sensitive/normal skin with small-ish blackheads on/around my nose, chin, and the cheek area closest to my nose. I have been using this product for a few weeks now and it made my pores look noticibly larger and seemed to make clogged pores worse. The natural-based (surface type) SPFs that I've tried (just like this one) ALWAYS seem to clog my pores. While the chemical based SPFs ALWAYS make me break out and very often clog my pores as well. I do cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize regularly so I'm not sure what else I can do to eliminate this whole SPF problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have extreme sun damage which I do not want to make worse, plus I am trying to use anti-sun damage products which absolutely require the use of an SPF. I have tried so many products. Please help!

If anything sunscreen helps maintain the pore size, as the sun rays make the walls of your pores expand. So it's very important for anyone with large pores to use sunblock. I would recommend to do facials with an esthetician as their cleansing is a lot more thorough. At some point my skin was pretty badly broken out, and after about 3-4 visits it got a lot better so now I'm just maintaining. Good luck

I have EXACTLY the same trouble you do and experienced the same thing with this product! I think my next step is going to be to use a moisturizer with no SPF, apply all makeup, and then try the Peter Thomas Roth mineral duster with SPF as the last step. That way it is just ON TOP OF my skin and not really WORKED into it, ya know? Good luck!!!

I also noticed in increase in my pore size initially, but I was using this in conjunction with the regular Argan oil. I have since stopped using the oil on my face because the SPF adds some already and I use the JM color match foundation over it which also has Argan. I read the reviews of Dr. Perricone's pore minimizing toner and have noticed a significant reduction of my pores with twice daily use. I also suggest Kate Somerville's Exfolikate. I received a few free samples and plan on purchasing it. That eliminated the blackheads near my nose and smoothed out my dry patches. My skin has not looked this good in years. I too have sun damage/melasma and would not think of switching SPF's because of the 40 factor. Anything higher than 30 is really hard too find and often too thick for daily use.

I am prone to acne and have combo skin and I use the Kate Somerville sunscreen 55 (the tinted version but she has a regular) and its the best I have ever used. I use just a little mixed in with my oil free moisturizer and its jus great. Never made me breakout. hope that helps

I don't know if you have already tried the Clinique City Block SPF 40, but I believe it is oil free and may help avoid the blackheads. I also get blackheads around my nose and the only thing that reduces it is the Clinique clarifying lotion. So far I really like the Josie Maran sunblock, but I live in a dry, cold climate & haven't tried it in summer yet. I have used and like the City Block, so if you haven't already tried it, it may work for you. Good luck!
