An Okay Sunscreen

Location: DC
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “clear”

This sunscreen goes on clear which is great but it leaves my face oily and shiny, also it's a very small amount for the price.

When I got my hands on this product, I got so intrigued that I immediately tried it on to find out why Benefit unabashedly called it Dream Screen. When it has finally settled onto my skin, I went "Woooww" because it's super light, truly invisible, mattifying, and fragrance- free, making it the perfect sunscreen for combination oily/normal and oily skin types. Not only does it protect the skin from UV rays, Dream Screen acts like a moisturizer and primer, too!

Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Location: Malaysia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Gentle, Light, Matte”

UV rays are our skin's number one enemy as they speed up ageing, so a good sunscreen is extremely important! I love the Dream Screen because it feels so lightweight and comfortable on my face. It also leaves my face feeling fresh and matte, making it perfect to allow me to layer make up on. I like the smooth and silky texture of the liquid that glides effortlessly over my face, so a little goes a long way! Most importantly, it is effective and helps keep my face well protected. Girls, if you're going for some summer fun in the sun you know what to bring with you! 😉

Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Location: Malaysia
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “Comfortable, Effective, Lightweight”

The skin is the first part of the body to show signs of ageing hence it's essential that I apply a layer of sunscreen on my face before any skincare or make up goes on it! I love the Dream Screen because it sits on my face nicely - it doesn't feel heavy or oily, but quickly absorbs into my skin and gives it a nice matte effect. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry either! It feels great to be able to wear this under my make up as this sun screen allows my skin to breathe. I love the texture of the product as it feels comfortable and gentle on my face. Most importantly, it does a great job of protecting and caring for my skin. Girls, if you're looking to have fun under the summer sun you know what you need to pack along with you! :)

Worth every penny!

Location: San Diego, CA
Skin tone: Medium
Love that it's: “lightweight, high spf, dries matte, silky”

Due to my extracurricular activities, I'm out and about in the sun for hours at a time. I finally caved and bought this sunscreen after becoming fed up with how oily and dark my skin was getting. Since it was much more expensive than my prior sunscreen, I was really hoping it would work out. And luckily, I was not disappointed! A little goes a long way and it dries super quick! I love how silky my skin feels after applying it, and my boyfriend does too! ;) Despite the copious amounts of sweat that ran down my face, after a couple of pats to dry my face, my face was still matte! And since I started using it, my face finally stopped tanning quite as much. It is a true holy grail product for me. I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out!

Game Changer

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA
Eyes: Brown
Love that it's: “matte spf”

I have extremely oily skin and I'm super skeptical of most mattifying lotions. I tried this b/c I needed a lotion with SPF and I wanted the bonus Benefit gift at Ulta. What a lucky find! This lotion keeps me matte for hours. The application is silky and quick-drying. Yes, it's a bit pricey for how much product is in the bottle, but it's worth it. It's hard to find a good everyday mattyifing lotion with SPF that performs for an entire work day. For the convenience and quality, I think the price is more than fair. This is one of my new holy grail staples.

Light & dreamy!

Love that it's: “lightweight”

LOVE this new sunscreen. Recently took it with me on a tropical vacay and it not only protected my face from the harsh sun, but it was silky smooth and lightweight when applied. It will definitely be a permanent addition to my makeup bag!

Skin comfortable with texture

Location: Madrid, Spain
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Fair
Love that it's: “very nice not oily texture, light”

Lately, when a new product comes out, I tend to adapt it to my beauty routine. I've done it with Big Easy, which I praise, I believe, most deservedly, and now, for Dream Screen. I apply Dream Scream after It's Potent (It's Potent being the last step of my beauty ritual) and before Big Easy. What I like about Dream Scream is that it isn't oily, it seems to dry quickly on your skin and just a little is enough for both face and neck, it goes a long way. However, I would have liked the SPF to have been slightly higher. Sun in some countries (Spain, for example) tends to be scorching and fair complexions need to be protected in any way they can. And even though a little amount of the product goes a long way, I too think the bottle should be a little bigger. Overall, I think it is a very good product.

Too Small For That Price

Location: Albuquerque, NM, USA
Eyes: Hazel
Skin tone: Medium

I was buying online and wanted to spend $50 so I didn't have to pay like $20 in s/h fees. I was pretty disappointed to see the very small bottle. I think the price should have been more reasonable, like $8 for that size. I won't be buying it again.

best sunscreen ever!

Location: San Francisco, CA, USA
Eyes: Green
Skin tone: Light
Love that it's: “light, high spf”

I love dream screen because you can wear it solo and it won't dry out your face or make it oily (I have combination skin). I wore this on a beach trip solo and not only did I get great sun protection I loved how the formula dried quickly, was not fragrant and how well it lasted. It blended smoothly on my skin and gave me a matte finish. This is truly a must have!

Great sunscreen

Location: San Jose, CA
Eyes: Brown
Skin tone: Medium

Normally I can not use sunscreen or moistures with sunscreen because it makes me very oily. This sunscreen does not make me oily and even tho the sunscreen is white I don't have a ghostly sheen when I use it. The texture is very light and airy. It does not irritate my skin in any way. I am so happy that I found a sunscreen that I can use daily to help protect my skin. So far so good. Also, I am newbie to Benefit just started using within the last 1.5 years.

Love the matte texture

Location: Hayward, CA
Skin tone: Light

I love that this is SPF 45 AND the texture is so light. At first I was surprised by the matte/mineral feel but once I let it dry on my face (which is rather quickly), I couldn't feel anything -- totally weightless and not greasy. I then applied my liquid foundation without any problems. I have oily skin in my T-zone and so far I have not experienced any extra oily-ness on my skin with this product.

great product

Location: San Diego
Eyes: Brown

This is a very thin liquid that is used as a sunscreen. Its great because it doesn't show up white at all and leaves the skin matte.
