Complete Protection!

I love this sunscreen and use it myself and on my whole family. My husband uses it when golfing too. We have never gotten a sunburn. It is all mineral and my skin feels great after using. I found using the right amount and rubbing in well, it dries to a sheer beautiful finish :) Would recommend 100x over!

Great SPF!

I love this facial sunscreen! It's super light and stays on all day. Rubs in after a few minutes and doesn't break me out.

Favorite sunscreen!

The perfect sunscreen for me to layer on before my makeup! Doesn't leave a white cast! Sheer but still thick enough to make it feel like I'm getting protection from the sun

Only SPF that doesn't make me break out!

I love the Sheer Mineral Face SPF from Replenix. It's the only SPF I can wear under my makeup that leaves no white cast and doesn't make me break out.

This is my favorite mineral sunscreen! It's perfect for daily use. It offers great protection AND rubs in clear! I recommend this to all my friends and family.

Great sunscreen also for post-acne skin/scars!

I am already at my second bottle, I bought this product 2 times because it's one of my ultimate favorite sunscreens. I just hate when sunscreens leave a white cast and this one is super light and penetrates the skin so easily! I also feel that having the Green Tea Polyphenols helps with my post-acne skin and acne scars! I have a few scars that burn when I used another sunscreen! I totally recommend the Sheer Mineral and I love that it comes with protection 50!

My skin is so smooth!

I love the way my skin looks after using Replenix. I use this sunscreen first thing in the morning after my moisturizer

Changed formula no longer works for me

The new formulation with using titanium dioxide leave a white cast on face and is not long usable. I have found Eucerin Sensitive Mineral Zinc Oxide 50 to be an excellent replacement. Granted the Eucerin product does not have the extra ingredients (green tea, vitamin a, etc) but I can use other products to get those. And a bonus, the Eucerin is available at Walgreens and much less expensive.

Allergic to Titanium Dioxide

I had been using Topix's Sheer Physical Sunscreen 50+ for about ten years until the pandemic started (that just happened to be around the same time, I think, that Topix had already taken the sunscreen off the market for re-formulating). I have dry-to-very-dry, sensitive, blemish-prone skin. I also have rosacea and eczema. Compounding those issues is my allergy to titanium dioxide (deep, painful cysts that take weeks to erupt and heal) and chemical sunscreens (makes me look like boiled lobster). I can only wear zinc oxide sunscreens, and my skin doesn't like certain ingredients (ex. phenoxyethanol, fragrances, essential oils, okozerite, beeswax, etc.), so finding a sunscreen that makes my skin happy can be a challenge. My skin was happy with the original/initial formula. However, I cannot try the new formula because of my pre-existing titanium dioxide allergy. I'm sad and disappointed, but I understand the company is trying to save money (zinc oxide is expensive, and even more so with the ""transparent"" type) and to attract more customers who complain about paying $40 for 2 ounces of sunscreen (I'm one of those customers who complain because that limits it to only my face and nowhere else, which defeats the entire purpose of wearing sunscreen in the first place). I'm sorry to say they lost a loyal customer---but that's just the way it is. It's not just Topix, but many other companies like Neutrogena. I have a growing allergy to phenoxyethanol (smells like roses... hint: if you can smell it in the product, they put in way too much) and that limits my ability to wear anything with phenoxyethanol in it. Anyway, I wanted to thank Topix for making such a wonderful product in their original formula. It will be, and is, greatly missed.

New version does not spread well and leaves a white cast

I'm unhappy with the new version. I was a loyal customer for years and this new version is hard to spread and leaves a sloppy white cast on my skin.
