Has anyone ever experienced an allergic reaction to this product? I usually use Boscia's Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15. I wanted a heavier SPF, so I took this sample home to try.
I seem to be having an allergic reaction. I have tiny red spots all over my face. There's a heavier concentration around my hairline. It burns, ever so slightly, and a few of the bumps are raised up. I took a benadryl, so I'm hoping it will be fine in the morning, but I was curious if anyone else had a similar reaction. It's only on my face and the sides of my neck, I hypothesized that this was what caused the reaction, as nothing else in my routine had changed. I included pictures as this was a little hard to describe.
My skintone is very fair and the only sensitivity I have ever noticed was to a Vitamin C treatment I had done in a spa. I did work out today, so I did have a little perspiration around my hairline. I honestly, hope that no one has had an allergic reaction to this lotion.

on Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense® Lotion with SPF 30
I have sensitive skin & can't use any product contain Vit C. It seems to work for me. I also have another high SPF50 sunscreen from Clé de Peau Beauté but it's bit on the pricy side @ $120 for 1.69oz. I will wear this on a very sunny day.
I've never had any reaction to the Max Sheer--and my skin has irritating reactions to a lot of things--including the Boschia your post mentioned. I've always used a mild astringent--usually generic witch hazel on a cotton ball-- before applying the sunscreen though, and that tends to remove the skin/sweat/oil residue that can itch or clog pores. Hope maybe that helps.

I have pretty sensitive and reactive skin -- I have not had any adverse reactions to this product (or any PTR product). As another commenter said, maybe your skin is reacting to the sunscreen ingredients? I would suggest looking for a moisturizer that does not contain chemical sunscreens (Octinoxate, Octisalate, Meradimate, Oxybenzone, Avobenzone).

No reactions, but I'm oily.
I usually react to everything and this one hasn't bothered me. Maybe it's the SPF part of the product?
