As far as I know from the list of all ingredients, it is oil free. It is not listed as oil free on the bottle though. It contains glycerin that gives it moisturizing properties.

It is not oil-free as far as I know but Shiseido did just come out with an Oil-free version with SPF 42 which is also very nice as well.

Not all products are for sentitive skin. Some people might even sensitive from SPF ingredients. They are also sold in retailer counter which is in most shopping malls.

Yes, but SLIGHTLY less water in it, so the tiniest bit "goopier." I prefer the texture of this one to the 55, but I do use both and love both. Also, while it is water-resistant, it's not quite as strong, so it doesn't leave as much of a residue on your face and absorbs a little more quickly.

You can feel this on your face right after application, but this one does dry down once it sinks in. This is a thicker cream like product, I use the Extra Smooth Lotion SPF 38 from the same line under my makeup daily, and its more lightweight than this product is, its watery, so it absorbs right away. But, this product is good, it just takes a minute of two to sink into your skin.

This product made me look like I had clown makeup on. It was soooo hard to rub in, it never did blend right. It left a white color on my face.

Is this a thick cream?
I'm not suppose to use thick creams on my face. If this is a thinner cream, I'll be able to use it.

No, this is a lightweight, non-greasy cream. Based on my experience (and I have fair, sensitive and combination skin), I'd recommend it for all skin types. You might want to try a sample before buying the full-size product. Hope this helps.

I'm not 100% sure. But in my opinion, I don't think it's nano-sized since it's quite think and it leaves a white colour on face.

Any zinc particles are not noticeable to me. I like the matte translucent veil that this spf provides to tone down mild redness or unevenness. I don't SEE any zinc particles with my naked eyes.
