Yes this product is non-comodegenic meaning it doesn't clog your pores. Very important for acne prone skin.

Question
Allergic Reaction?
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.

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).

answer 1
I have skin that is very--often painfully--dry, and subject to random oil-slicks--and which has suddenly developed a talent for acne--a late bloomer-- and this Max Sheer sunscreen is one of the few things to which my skin does not object. It hasn't caused or worsened any breakouts for me and it's almost soothing over a very light moisturizer, which is how I usually wear it. It is expensive, but if you can get it in a sample or have access to a store counter I'd give it a go. Hope that helps.

I also have dry acne prone skin and this product is the only thing I have found that doesn't make me break out and feels like I am wearing nothing all day. It's worth the money!

No, it's a lotion. I've found it really does go on much more "sheer" than say Clinique, Nuetrogena, shiseido or a lot of other lotions that use the same adjective, at least in my experience, and it tends to rub into skin very rapidly and without any residue. I don't wear much make-up usually--too hot where I live, and the thought of wearing another layer of anything is unpleasant--but this is untinted, scentless, and light enough that it really is like wearing 'nothing at all' but a 'nothing' with good SPF.

It's a very light cream. A little more moisturizing than a gel.

What's the difference between Max Sheer and the Max Daily?

BOTH are oil-free. I use the daily in the colder months - starting October thru April. Switch to this for the warmer months. My skin has always broken out and these 2 are the only sunscreens or moisturizers that do not have that effect. hate the price but have been using them for going on 3 years.

Compare Ingredients! The Sheer is superior as far as components. Therefore, I haven't used the Daily, sorry.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. It is perfectly fine to wear while in the sun.

No, it doesn't contain those two physical blockers. It's main active ingredient is avobenzone, which I've read somewhere that can be unstable unless it's in conjuction with a stablizer. I don't know if any of the active ingredients are stabilizers, so that's why I haven't repurchased this item. Perhaps somebody can comment further on this? The other ingredients are Homosalate 10%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Octisalate 5%, Octocrylene 2%, and Oxybenzone 6%.
