I felt so uncertain about buying this but really happy I did. It works great and a little goes a long way. Unfortunately it is very oily on my skin, but what else can you expect from sunscreen? Will buy again for the summer months.
22/09/2022, By Rura
This is a nice light moisturiser/sunscreen
Love the consistency. Its thin and smooth but very moisturising which i love and leaves a nice glow on the face
Would definitely recommend
13/12/2021, By Esmarie
This is a wonderful sunscreen. I've already ordered my 2nd bottle. Really good coverage and my kids, who spend a lot of time outdoors, haven't gotten burnt at all when I use this product.
28/09/2021, By Jeanne
This sunscreen absorbs quite well if you massage it in, although it initially creates a white sheen. It seems to be working, but I do wish it had a higher spf.
06/06/2021, By Theresa-Anne
I love Oh Lief products. I’ve been using them for a long time. I’d love to see a higher SPC 20 factor (for the face especially).
22/05/2021, By Deb
Has a soft silky feeling when applied, quite nice
05/02/2021, By Dia
Lovely on skin. Lasts long, need only a little. leaves skin soft.
04/02/2021, By Tracy
I love this product. It is light and non greasy and perfect to put on over your face cream. I love the fax that is natural.
27/01/2021, By Natalie
Love this sunscreen! Works well on my face and love the texture. I love a good face oil, so this is a winner for me.
25/01/2021, By Juanica
It is very oily. Not a good buy.
04/01/2021, By Melanie
This sunscreen works wonders on the face. It's a little oily at first, but absorbs quickly, without the shine. It's not quite clear though whether it's meant to be used as a moisterizer that has SPF or whether it's just a sunscreen that needs to be applied on top of moisterizer.
19/12/2020, By Karabo
Great for popping in your fave moisturizer
31/10/2020, By Candice
I like that it doesn't go white on your skin and the smell is neutral. I was hoping to use it as a daily moisturiser under my makeup but it is too oily. My make up slid right off. I will continue to apply it before going out in the sun.
27/10/2020, By Aliyah
Great Product
01/09/2020, By Sonja
Too greasy and not fond of the smell.
29/08/2020, By Brenda

I use this as my daily moisturiser. I have fair skin so must use something with an SPF. I love that it is thin and applies easily and evenly, without any white residue. I just wish the SPF was higher - it's sufficient for normal daily use, but if I'm in the sun for long then it's not strong enough.
01/05/2020, By Marie
I use this as my daily day cream and my greatest fear is that one day it will be discontinued. Yes, the product is oily, but you should only use a little and the oils are heaven for a dry, irritated skin like mine. I have a pale complexion and spend a lot of time out of doors, so I need a good sunscreen. I get terrible eczema and this is the only face cream with a spf I've tried that I'm not allergic to.
27/04/2020, By Joy
I used this product on my face in the morning before work. My car broke down on the side of the road and I stood waiting for a tow truck for 3 hours in the sun. My neck was burnt but my face which was only protected by sunscreen was perfectly normal. I also struggle with acne and this suncream did not aggravate it! It's not cheap but for someone who struggles with breakouts and sensitive to sun burn- it has been wonderful
30/03/2020, By Winner
Quite good
15/01/2020, By Tayla
This product is greasy, but if you work it into your skin it does absorb and leaves you with a glow. I don't really wear makeup so I'm not sure how it performs under foundation. In terms of protection, I've worn it to the beach twice on really hot days and never got sunburnt. I do wear a sunhat though and my face still managed to get a healthy tan!
10/12/2019, By Kristina
I tend to have dry skin, and so this product works very well for me as a daily sunscreen and moisturizer. I've been using it for a couple of years, and in that time it's also helped to decrease breakouts and blemishes. The texture is a little more oily than typical sunscreens, but after giving it a few minutes to absorb I find it perfectly light and moisturizing.
30/11/2019, By Michelle
Unfortunately too oily for my skin. It does seem pretty effective though as a sunscreen.
21/10/2019, By Anneli
I do not like the way my skin feels with it on. I do not mind that it makes my skin oily. I have a pale skin and feel that this is not sufficient for me.
06/10/2019, By Erica
Lovely consistency and provided great protection from the Mauritian sun!
13/09/2019, By Joy
Does its job, but too oily for my skin
27/08/2019, By Ayesha
Really good product. Not too heavy
21/08/2019, By Colleen
Not very impressed with this product. Seems to work well but is way too greasy to be advertising itself as a face sunscreen. Really hard to get off your hands even with soap. Would not buy again.
26/01/2019, By Thia
Works well as a sunblock but it is very oily and takes a while to absorb. Not really suitable for those with oily skin. I tend to use this in winter rather than in the summer months due to how oily it is
02/12/2018, By Safiyyah
Works for sun ... but too oily for me and made my face shiny/white. caused breakouts.
25/11/2018, By Bianca
Great moisturizer and sunscreen. A little goes a long way, especially for oilier skin and leaves you feeling great because you know you’re only giving your skin the best organic products without all the harmful preservatives.
13/11/2018, By Isa
Works very well
20/10/2018, By Kaeyla
I so wish this wasn't so oily - and it really is, even applying just a little. I love Oh-Lief's Aqueous Cream so decided to try this sunscreen in spite of other reviews, but maybe if you're going into the garden or otherwise don't mind a shining face, I would hesitate to recommend it. I can't comment on how effective it is.
09/10/2018, By LillySky
Sticky and oily. Hair was stuck to my cheeks and forehead all day. Still got burnt.
01/10/2018, By Deidre
I've been using this for a week now and am very happy. I do quite a bit of gardening, therefor I really need a good sunscreen. I apply it straight after my day cream in the morning and only apply make-up after I did some morning chores. By that time, the sunscreen has been absorbed and make-up stays put :-) Thank you Oh-Lief for yet another winner product!!
24/09/2018, By patrycja
I got this sunblock for my daughter but after using 2-3 times her aczema popped out everywhere.
20/09/2018, By Vee
I use this daily on my children and it works well, my children are very fair and I love that I can use it daily without exposing them to harmful chemicals. It can feel a bit oily which is why I use it but not daily on myself.
16/09/2018, By Bianca
A little goes a long way. I use very little at a time, because I tend to have oily skin. Good daily spf as well. However I would not recommend using it as a base for make-up
30/07/2018, By archilulu
I'm very sensitive to sunscreen products on my skin and was delighted to test this one with ZERO chemical burn feelings on my face. It provides adequate protection for me who burns easily, and I gladly use it on my baby
08/07/2018, By Vicki
Been very happy with this product for my 3 year old. Knowing it has good ingredients and does the job.
04/07/2018, By Nasreen
My bro refuses to use any thing else but this on his face
19/06/2018, By Clare
Only sunblock I will use on my face. It can tend to 'crumble' when rubbed too hard but I just pat in on with my face balm in the mornings and it is fine! Obviously needs reapplication on very sunny days but in summer I never leave the house without an application. Thank you for the great product, Oh-Lief!
05/02/2018, By Taryn
I do think this product is a bit oily but I was hiking in the sun the whole day and my face didn't get burnt so I'd recommend it as a sunscreen but not for daily use.
09/01/2018, By Nettie
Ladies please take note: If two or more people say this product is to oily, then it is. Although it is a good sun protector, it is way to oily to use everyday. I had to dab most of the oiliness off my face with a tissue everytime I used it. I only used it on the days I went out in the sun and in our very hot December my face was way too oily to my liking. Maybe the manufacturers have to look into this matter.
15/11/2017, By Dilemma
Nice on my dry skin. Seemed to keep it moisturized for the day.
21/10/2017, By Jeanine
I had high hopes, yet the product is so oily my hair acually sticks to my skin when it touches it and gets really oily. I usually apply sunblock to boh face smd neck. Although it absorbes a bit after a while, later in the day, especially when warmer i feel like an oil ball and doesnt work well under makeup. I wont be getting this again. Im finishing the product by using on my body, not face.
06/10/2017, By Tracey
Not sure about the film it leaves behind but will give it more time
27/09/2017, By Mareli
Even though I see many people complain about the sunscreen being too oily, I didn't find the facial one (SPF 20) too oily at all (compared to some of the other oh lief sunscreens). It is a lovely moisturising sunscreen for the face and I love it!
07/08/2017, By Esme
I had high hopes for this product, because I absolutely love the OhLief aqueous cream. However, I found this cream to be so oily that I have to wait 10-15 min for it to absorb before putting on make-up - not great if you're in a hurry. It also left my make-up brushes oily and sticky. I live in a dry climate and have quite a dry skin, so I was surprised that this cream didn't absorb quickly. I also found that I have to apply moisturiser before applying the cream, which otherwise did not provide me with enough moisture. The neutral smell is great though.
12/06/2017, By Jo-anne
Stunning product, great for dry skin.
29/05/2017, By raeesa
Very thick product. leaves a residue and does not blend well at all into the face
04/04/2017, By Jenna
While natural sunscreen is tricky and this brand is beautiful, I found this sunscreen to dry out my face even though its formula was quite oily and thick on my skin.
07/02/2017, By Teev
Finally a sun cream my children will happily put on their faces without running away! You only need a tiny bit and it spreads easily, and rubs in not like most zinc based sun creams. It is quite oily but I don mind it and it gets absorbed.
07/01/2017, By Kristen
I love this face sunscreen. I can see from other reviews that some had reactions to the formula--I was surprised because I also have sensitive skin and have had no problems with this sunscreen. Perhaps there is an ingredient in the sunscreen that some are allergic to.

It will feel a little greasy when you apply it, but (1) remember that a little will go a long way and (2) the oil will quickly absorb into your skin.

Ive been using it a for a few weeks and it seems to be effective.
18/12/2016, By Anet
I loved the Oh Lief sunscreen and like the way my skin felt after application. Ive used it on myself as well as my two children - without any problems. Will buy it again.
05/12/2016, By Melissa
I am using an all natural face care system which I absolutely love but the brand doesn have a sunscreen in their system so the search was on for a good face sunscreen. I really hoped that Oh Lief would be the one and I loved the consistency and how it glided onto my face but after 2 or 3 days my face reacted badly to it with weird breakouts. Quite sad as I really tried to love it :(
28/11/2016, By Denise
This product gives the same result as smearing coconut oil onto my face - after 3 hours my face is still very greasy and shiny....and I have quite a dry skin.

I don know how effective it is as a sunscreen as I cannot go out in public with it on....
23/11/2016, By Ana
Love that this is an all-natural product, but I find this extremely oily on my skin and it leaves a white sheen. I used very little. Good if you
e doing sports, but don think it works as an everyday suncreen under makeup.
22/11/2016, By Donnique
Very good product, easily absorbed, not too oily, no fragrance.
07/08/2016, By Maria
I apply this on top of my moisturiser, and love it! It is a bit oily going on, but I just use a really tiny amount, and it absorbs quickly. I have combination skin, and have had no problems. Would definitely recommend this!
30/05/2016, By sarah
I think this product is okay, but when applying it feels very oily. Like a film of oil is going to stay on your face all day. I suppose for someone with very dry skin this would be a good product.
27/01/2016, By Sandra
Lovely smooth sun-block, that really works in protecting my face against the sun.
15/12/2015, By Rolien
Most other face creams that I have used either made my face oily or caused pimples and blackheads. When I started using this Oh-Lief product, my skin cleared up almost right away. It is a bit oily at first, but it goes on smoothly and is quickly absorbed, so it doesn form an oily layer on your skin. Im impressed!
11/11/2015, By Ingrid
LOVE the Oh Lief sunscreen products!
02/10/2015, By Adele
At first I thought it a bit greasy, but I gave it a go under my foundation and I am very pleased. Even with the sweltering highveld temperatures my make-up did not melt of and it gives my skin a wonderful glow. A definite new favorite.
27/05/2015, By Natalie
I like the sunscreen. I didn have any irritation. It is a bit oily but it doesn make my skin oily, this also makes it easier to apply.
26/02/2015, By Kirsten
Although my sensitive skin is happy with some of the other Oh Lief products, the sunscreen caused itching and redness on myself and my kids. The product has an oily texture but a big plus is that it isn whitening. Possibly others will like it.
