The sun’s UV rays are able to penetrate your skin at the cellular level, breaking down the proteins and fibers that give your skin fullness, elasticity and resiliency. This damage causes skin to sag, wrinkle and become unevenly pigmented. And sun exposure may lead to skin cancer. The SkinCeuticals Protect product line has revolutionized sunscreen. Their unique formulation has harnessed the power of UV-blocking zinc oxide - but without the pasty white coverage that zinc oxide is known for. Instead, the SkinCeuticals Protect products contain transparent zinc oxide, or Z-Cote®. Even better, they also have fewer ingredients, to reduce irritation. Want to know more about these breakthrough sunscreens? Read the SkinCeuticals Protect Reviews, where customers share their product stories.
Written by real customers, the SkinCeuticals Protect Reviews include information you may not see in product descriptions or ad copy. Learn how customers like the tint of the Z-Cote®-based product. Discover how quickly the sunscreen is absorbed into the skin, or how the matte finish allows you to wear makeup without looking shiny.

I have been using the skin store for about 5 years and this is my first review. This is a excellent product and with a SPF of 50 is such a great find. Being a red head, my face takes a beating. I will be reordering.
Don't understand reviewers!

I'm a Licensed Esthetician and decided to try this product after all the rave reviews. I HATE this product. It is like trying to apply water to your skin it's THAT thin. It left a weird grease like feeling all over and I feel other products do the job MUCH better. I will say a little goes a long way
WOW!!! LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!

I have been eyeing this product for a while and finally took the plunge. I have never been so surprised about a product in my life. I have bought and tossed so many sunscreen products I hate to even think about it. This is by far the most fabulous facial sunscreen ever. It's sheer, goes on nicely, is not heavy or greasy like most other sunscreen products I've tried. It's pretty thin but still spreads nicely- a little goes a long way. The best part is the tint--unbelievably natural. All SC products are unscented. Does it have the best scent in the world? No but I wouldn't say it's horrible as others have. I really don't care. I prefer it unscented rather than have perfumes which would probably irritate my skin. It actually looks like a light foundation after you put it on. Like I said, it's unbelivable. A must try.
continually use this product

I have used this product on the recommendation of my dermatologist for over six years. I have sent it to friends as gifts. It is lovely but it can be white appearing. Mix a brightener or a small dab of foundation in it to give a dewey soft focus to your skin on top of the lovely, effective sunscreen effect. Use sparingly around the eye area. It can settle. I put it on in the morning - no powder and I'm done for the day. It does not make my skin break out - I have rosacea and very sensitive skin. It can be used on your hands, neck and chest.

I like this product very much. It goes on smooth, makes my skin feel silky and is very lightweight. It has a slite tint so it evens out skin tone a bit. I will continue to purchase this product. I also like the fact that it has a high SPF not just 15 or 20-more protection.
Great product and value for $$$$!

This is a great product for the nearly year-round sun we have in California. It's lightweight, concentrated and absorbs into my skin quickly. But what sets this apart from other products is the affect of the tint in the lotion. I have acne scars so the texture of my skin is rough and the tint in this product does wonders! My skin looks flawless and smooth yet very natural! No need to use powder or anything else on top of it. I like it so much that I had two of my neighbors use some of mine (one very light skinned older woman and one younger woman with Asian skin) and the results were just as amazing. SO PRACTICAL.

I love all SkinCeuticals products so its no big surprise that I love the sunscreen as well. I don't notice any coverage from the color in the product but it doesn't make my already greasy skin greasier. It seems to last all day and I use it with the whole product line, which is a lot of products, and you don't feel like you have a ton of stuff on your face. Huge fan of this line!
One of the Best Sunscreens

This sunscreen leaves no sticky residue at all, no grease, and no shine. It really disappears.
The only reminder that I have it on my skin is the smell, which bothers me for many hours after I apply the sunscreen. However, I have an unusually strong sense of smell and almost every sunscreen (and perfume, scented hairspray, etc.) bothers me or even gives me a headache. This one's smell is subtle enough that, even though it bothers me, it would probably be fine for most people. It's not perfumey--just a mild chemical smell, like all zinc oxide sunscreens have. I don't think this is enough of a problem to detract a star.
it doesn't irritate my sometimes-sensitive skin at all and doesn't aggravate my acne.
I really wish they'd make this product in a larger bottle for the body; at this price, it's too expensive to use every day on my face, neck, arms, hands, and legs (if I'm wearing shorts or a skirt.), but I wish I could afford to use it every day.
not enough moisture

very matte finish made my skin dryout and my wrinkles more noticeable. on the plus side it didn't irraite my sensitive skin. I will go back to PCA hydrator plus
SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50

It depends on what area you use this product if I would recommend it.. I bought it for my hands and the bottle on line looked like a good size however, VERY SMALL.. I gather it is for the face.
The product otherwise looks and feels very nice and I like the tint.
