My HG sunscreen is EltaMD Clear but this one is a close second. It is perfect for my combo oily acne prone skin, sinks in beautifully without a white cast. It has a slight scent, not a normal sunscreen scent, I don't know how to describe it but it does not bother me. It is lightweight and actually helps to mattify my skin, almost working as a matte primer. Perfect for all year around. It does not break me out or pill under makeup.
