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.

Best Sunscreen for Faces

I began wearing sunscreen religiously about two yeas ago. I have tried every sunscreen that claims to be lightweight and provide broad spectrum protection. Never before have I found one that feels so light and doesn't make my oily skin feel greasey. I can work in the yard, run in the park and, though I may be drenched in sweat, my skin is still protected from the sun. This is the first year ever that my nose hasn't been pink....not once! That little bottle lasts a long time too! I use it on my face, neck, and chest and have had the same bottle for about two months.

This sunscreen is exceptional. I love it. It is more liquid than other sunscreens and absorbs more quickly. Also a lot less greasy. The best thing though is that I can rub it all over my face and do not need to avoid my eyes because it is absolutely non-irritating. I have had a lot of problems with other sunscreens irritating my eyes, even though I do not put them near my eyes. It seems like they exude some kind of fumes that make my eyes hurt all day.

This is definitely one of the best--if not THE best--high-protection sunscreens I have used. It has a universal, light tint to it that veils minor imperfections (I am very fair, so I don't know how it would be on anyone with medium-darker skin color). It does not look greasy--perfect for running to the gym w/ out makeup on & lasts thru a sweaty workout. And it is great as your everyday SPF moisturizer under your makeup if you have combo to oily skin. You may need to add more moisture if you have normal-dry skin.

I am allergic to chemical sunscreens and noticed that I got small breakouts on my face using the usual greasy and heavy sensitive skin sunscreen formulas. So I've been looking around for one specifically for the face, and this product is awesome. It goes on greasy at first, but dries to nice light matte finish so it doesn't rub off or slide off. Its white when it comes out of the bottle, but does not leave a white palor to the face. I recommend this product to anybody who has sensitive skin!!!
Really like this product

This is a great product for everyday use. I love the SPF 20 by Skinceuticals and was interested to try this one for added protection. I am really impressed and love the texture, feel and look of this and am so excited that it is SPF 50. I would highly recommend.
Nice daily sunscreen

I've been a huge fan of the Physical UV Defense SPF 30 but have found it to be a bit heavy during the summer and spring so I thought I'd give this new product a try. I've found my new favorite daily sunscreen. The product is light, absorbs quickly, and has a nice tint (which eliminates the white residue that Physical Defense can leave). The only con is that it's the same price as the Physical Defense but half the product amount in each bottle.

This is a great product for anyone with oily skin as it does not leave any greasy residue and stays matt. Looks good under makeup and does not clog pores.
I Love It!

As a light, sensitive skinned person who burns easily and has never tanned, I have unsuccessfully searched for a facial sunscreen for years. Most irritate my skin and eyes, have a sticky and/or gloopy residue, or clog my pores. This sunscreen doesn't cause any problems. It spreads easily over my face cream, works well with cosmetics, isn't greasy, and goes a long way. I put it on after my facial serum and cream. Make sure you shake it first.
Worth the Price!

I recently purchased this sunscreen, hoping that I would finally find something that I could wear. Most sunscreens feel greasy and heavy on my face. SkinCeuticals offers a great alternative. The product absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy or sticky. Best of all, it doesn't have the typical sunscreen smell. Yes, it is expensive. I would rather pay more for a sunscreen that I will use, than struggle to use a product that I hate or go without altogether!

This is a wonderful sunscreen. The finish is, as other reviewers have noted, quite dry and matte, which is a definite bonus! Moreover, a little goes a long way. I only gave this product 4 stars, though, because it makes my foundation cake. Great choice if you will not be wearing under makeup!
