SPF 45 Sunscreen UVA/UVB Protection is rated 4.0647 out of 5 by 170.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too dark! Please make in a lighter shade! I love this powder except I have to mix it in order to wear it because it is way too dark. It's more for a medium complexion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around BEST! I use this alone over the poreless primer and it lasts and protects looks great and doesn't accentuate wrinkles but covers age spots.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great powder, but not for dry skin! I have areas on my face that are extremely dry. But with the right moisturizer/makeup combo, it is controllable. Unfortunately because of this, this powder does NOT work for me! It seemed to cling to my dry patches and make them even worse. I tried to give the product another chance, but every time I used this product, my skin got worse and worse. It is really a bummer because I LOVED everything else about the powder. The color and consistency were both great. Would probably work for a different skin type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I agree with alot of ppl. I am fair even with a tan and very light hand i still cant pull this off. I was hoping i would have loved it because i dont really like hd powder (too shimmery/glittery) and was really really hoping it would work for me. Other than the color i loved it. Please release it in a few more shades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sunscreen I ever used! I bought this sunscreen to take on my vacation. The product worked wonderfully. No burns on my fair face. Can't wait till it goes on sale. I would like to purchase at least 4. Shared the information with all my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I am very fair but this powder adds just a touch of color. I use it over my foundation to set it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! Although the reviews I read mostly said it was too dark, and I'm light skinned, I didn't hesitate ordering this at all. I was too excited about such a high SPF in a powder! I've used this several times now, on top of a tinted sunscreen. Instead of saying it's too dark, I would say it's pretty red. It gives the appearance of a little bit of a sunburn on my skin, and I kind of enjoy that. I just pat it all over my face, chest, and shoulders, and I'm ready for the sun, and it already looks like I've been in the sun. The times I've used it, I did not end up with a sunburn, which I guess is the most important part. I wouldn't say this powder is on the thick or thin side, and it gives a medium amount of color and coverage. The puff to apply it with isn't my favorite, but oh well. This may be a summer favorite of mine!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PLEASE make this in a lighter tone! I have been on the hunt for a product like this for years - a powder with SPF. I cannot re-apply my sunscreen after a few hours because it would mess up my makeup, but I am a stickler for wearing sunscreen. However, I am fair/light-skinned and this color doesn't work on me. PLEASE make this product in a lighter tone, elf!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoy this powder my only problem is that if you store it on its side, it leaks out. Not that big of a deal though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for pale people! If you are fair it is too dark. Definitely not sheer. I blended it with some translucent powder, and it was ok, but still too brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and works for sun screen Stays on and does NOT make you sweat it off.. all my life my doctors have yammered at me to use sun screen .. but all of them make me sweat from the moment they go on, so little good they do me. .not so, with this. I tired this the first sunny day we had and I was fully expecting to burn, due to winter pale.. To my shock.. I didn't ... this is part of my daily wear now :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight, non-greasy sun protection! I actually did not order this per se, I got it included in a kit. This is not something that would have occurred to me to purchase, but I really love it. I take walks every day to rehab after surgery. I am very fair skinned and I burn and freckle easily. I wear this on my face along with a hat and a long sleeved shirt when I go out and I am currently freckle and burn free! :) Like many people said, this is a little dark but it is so sheer that it blends into my skin very well. Also, I have been using one of those moisturizers that gradually give you a little color and now this powder is actually fairly good in its shade for me. I love that it does not sting my eyes and I can sweep my brush over my eyes to protect the eye area. I dip my brush into the powder and use it just like regular loose powder, except that I sweep it down my neck and over my chest and neck area as well as all over my face. During the winter, it would be way too dark for me. So, yes, I would definitely recommend this as excellent, lightweight sun protection that is super easy to sweep on with the Studio Complexion Brush in a few seconds before you run out the door! Love it and am repurchasing. ELF, please just make a fair shade so that I am covered during the winter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colour darkens when in contact with skin The coverage is pretty good. The problem is the colour darkens when it comes in contact with water and on my skin. The colour is too dark for me so another product wasted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Covers great but has bad metal smell! I love the way this covers but has a very bad metal smell and since its on your face, you constantly smell it. If the smell wasn't there, it would be perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this. I've been using this sunscreen for over two years now and it's a Godsend. I have oily, warm, medium-toned skin and am very sensitive to sunburn. Plus, where I work has no air-conditioning so powder foundations that don't slide off during the day work best for me. As for colour-matching, I don't think that the powder is meant to match your skin, persay. It leaves me looking ashy at first, so I use it UNDER my powder foundation. (like a regular sunscreen....duh) I use a little bit and buff it in really well and it actually creates a nice canvas for the powder foundation that actually matches me. It lasts a long time and really works, my face doesn't even tan in this hot climate with strong sunlight. Plus, it lasts a really long time, even with everyday use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mess I only tried to use this product once. The powder-cloud it creates when you open it is incredible. It is totally a mess. It caused me allergy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the SPF! I've been using this product for about two years, and I don't think I'll ever stop using it! I don't like to wear a lot of layers or heavy face makeup, so I use e.l.f. studio tinted moisturizer (that also had SPF 20) in nude, a little bit of concealer, and this to set it and keep my face from getting oily in the t-zone (plus, more spf!). There isn't a lot of color to it, but I think it looks very natural. It is a bit messy to apply though, and I recommend using a brush (like e.l.f. essential total face brush) to apply instead of the puff it comes with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great powder, too dark for some. I really like this powder. It's silky leaves a glow to the skin and has SPF of 45! My only con is that it's in one color. If you can make this in a transparent color or have multiple tones available I would give it 5 stars. The sifter jar is substantial, which makes it sturdy but a bit bulky for travel. I'd take it with me anyway. It's very affordable and very good quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good concept, bad color! I love high SPF powder so I can top off my sunscreen during the day. This is a great price and seems to fit the bill -- but goodness! I looked like a dirty orange. Please make a shade for light-skinned people.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Not for Those With Cool Undertones! I was pretty excited about this product, but sadly, the color is prohibitive. This is way too warm for anyone with fair skin, especially if you have cool undertones (if your veins look blue instead of green and you burn more easily than tan, that's you). I can't imagine it would work for anyone with olive or dark (e.g. Indian or Black) skin, either because it's very orange going on. I thought I'd gotten away with it by applying two layers of my tinted finishing powder on top, but my boyfriend took one look at me and bless him, he started to laugh.Not only that, but the container isn't quite user-friendly - it doesn't shake out easily.Is there a reason this couldn't have been a less orange powder? If the opacity is required, why not make it in varying shades???

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's purple ! I bought this hoping to add extra SPF in the Summer months. I used it for the first time yesterday and it even turned my powder brush purple along with making me a very odd colour. Do not recommend for light skin like mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So messy! I've been using this for a couple weeks now as a setting powder. It looks very nice, and blends well. I purchased it for the spf, and hopefully that's doing it's job but I use so little of it how can I tell. However, it is so freaking messy. Powder everywhere, all the time.
