I have delayed buying a face sunscreen for the longest time, because I was worried about adding yet another layer of product to my face! I use moisturizer, eye cream, primer, concealer, foundation, setting spray, pressed powder, blush, bronzer, and mattifying powder. If I buy this sunscreen, I would apply it right before the concealer and foundation. Has anyone else had good experiences layering this under a ton of make-up? I already have oily skin and don't want it to look worse.

I know this isn't technically a moisturizer, but since you said you have oily skin you may want to try using it as a replacement for your moisturizer, rather than using it on top of it. It does moisturize a little, and I liked using it that way because it is lightweight and since I also have oily skin, most regular moisturizers feel too heavy in the summer.
Hey, I have no problem with this under my make up, its a really light formula and it blends quickly, and no movement of my make ups, hope that helps.

I had similar reservations, but this has been great (in my experience) for wearing under makeup. It's a little watery when you first put it on (make sure you shake the bottle first), but when you rub it in it spreads very thin and absorbs fast so it feels like nothing at all. I put it on after my moisturizer.

It's totally fine. Using a separate sunscreen everyday -makeup or no makeup- is a must. I am generous when I apply this sunscreen. I recommend doing the following: cleanse--tone--moisturize--sunscreen--makeup.

Hello, I use this under my makeup and it gives a lovely finish and doesn't make my skin look like an oil slick at all. I have used bothe the original urban SPF and this oil free version. To me this is the better one for wearing under makeup for my skin. I do not use another moisturizer on the days I wear this under my makeup.
I love that it doesn't look ghostly either if you have pictures taken such as when you are on vacation.
I hope this helps :)
