Best Sunscreen

I have been using this for so long I cannot remember when I started using it. I like the white look it leaves on my face. For too many years I was wasting my money on a very expensive moisturizer & thought that heavy moisturizer was leaving glow on my face but I've stopped using that expensive moisturizer & still have glow, it is from Skinceuticals SPF 30,It is one of my favorite products and I have never found another that is comparable.

Love SkinCeuticals

5

I love most SkinCeuticals products, and this is another one to add to the list. It does go on a little sticky, but quickly absorbs. I wear it under make-up, and it helps keep me safe all day!

High altitude blessing!

5

Great product! Although the zinc oxide in the product leaves a white protection screen on your face it also moisturizes while it protects. I have used this skinceutical sunscreen for 5 years and haven't burned yet.

continually use this product

5

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.

Love this sunscreen!

5

I am a faithful Skinceuticals user. I use several products daily, including the Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30. It is so creamy and light, and I love the way it feels on my skin. I feel that it is an extra layer of moisturizer, as well as daily protection from the sun and free radicals. It is thick, which is an added plus for me. My routine in the morning, after I wash my face, is to apply the CE Ferulic, B5 Hydrating gel, moisturizer, and top with the sunscreen. Then I apply my makeup after letting the products absorb into my skin. I love this product, and I won't leave my house without this added protection for my skin - whether it's sunny or cloudy outside - summer or winter.

The Best SunBlock Ever

5

I took my first trip to Israel and took PCA Ultimate UV Defense 30 with me. I put it on once each day and I never got sunburn --- and it was sunny AND HOT!!I love this produce and would recommend it to anyone. It really saves your skin from those harmful sun rays.

The best protection!

5

I reapply every 2 hours and have been using it for 3 months already. My demarkations are almost gone. Really can feel the protection. It dosen't give me a dry feeling. One tube can last forever and I'm still using my first tube. The only thing I can complain is that does give a little ghostly face for people with darker skin but I will settle that.

My best sunscreen ever!

5

I started using this sunscreen couple months ago and I can feel how mush protection that it provides. My old UV spots have been fading out since I do remember to reapply every 2 hours. It is a little greasy but it's better than being flaky. It doesn't dehydrate my skin at all. The only thing I can complain is that still leave a ghostly face if you have darker skin but I also understand that it is hard to find a sunscreen doesn't create ghostly face at for darker skin people.

Excellent!

5

This product is excellent. I use it on my "T-zone". A little goes a long way, and when there's a little left over I use it on areas of dry skin. I don't know how it would go with makeup, since I don't wear any. But it goes on great on clean skin.

Great stuff....

I have oily, acne-prone, sensative skin. I have tried many, many products. My dermatologist recommended this product 3 years ago and I have used it ever since. It is not greasy or oily and my skin looks great! Thanks for a great product!

This is the best stuff

I have oily skin and adult acne breakouts. Tried everything, every type of foundation. I've been using this product for 2yrs and no more breakouts and makeup goes on overtop nicely and no oily problems anymore. It's the best stuff.

The Best Sunscreen Ever!

5

I have used many sunscreens in the past and this one is by far the best I have ever used. This is great for people who are acne prone. It doesn't make you break out and it doesn't feel greasy at all. This is a wonderful sunscreen if you have used or are using Accutane!

love it

5

It has a slight white tint, (I do not use any foundation) and it reduces the redness I have from using retin A. I love it and it has the right amount of moisture for dry skin - thick and creamy, and it makes my skin look flawless because of the slight white tint.

Only for Dry Skin

1

I wanted so badly to like this product as I have been trying to find a good SPF30 for so long. This product did not absorbe into my face well and my makeup looked all blotchy after using it. It simply does not absorb. I tried using less of it but it still left my face sticky and tacky. I cannot recommend this unless you do not wear makeup and don't mind your face feeling tacky/greasy all day. This is best for very dry skin not normal, combination or oily skin

Very Good Product

3

I have tried several sunscreens trying to find one that does not leave me greasy or with that white sheen. This leaves a very very slight white look, but MUCH less than other zinc containing sunscreens. Once I put on foundation you cannot see any of the whiteness peeking through.

Excellent for humid climates!

5

I live in Miami, and this sun screen is awesome! I have been using it for about 3 years now and it doesn not make me break out! This product is great! Make-up goes on smooth and I wouldn't use anything else.

Works but too drying

3

I live in the humid tropics so sunscreen is a must every day. On my combination skin, I found this cream very drying but it's good under makeup. I use a moisturizer first then this, and then make up. If I don't need to wear make up then I use Lyphazome.
