Heading outdoors on a bright, sunny day can lift your spirits and leave you feeling less stressed and much healthier, but unfortunately sun exposure has the opposite effect on your skin. Exposure to UV rays leads to irritation like redness and sunburns and can leave your skin stressed out and sore. The intense energy of ultraviolet light also has a profound impact on your skin cells. Damage caused by the sun is a leading cause of signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, and mutations caused by UV rays are a major factor in the development of many types of skin cancer.
The SkinMedica In Sun Reviews shown below contain information about products meant to protect your skin from sunlight and the irritation and damage that come from it. Actual customers who have tried SkinMedica sunscreens and sun-protective moisturizers have written each of the SkinMedica In Sun Reviews to give you an unbiased, first-hand account of the effectiveness of the products' formulas. Reading the SkinMedica In Sun Reviews can help you to choose the best sunscreen for you.

My favorite daily moisturizer with SPF
-4/10/2015 6:09:28 AM
I have shopped around quite a bit for a daily moisturizer with SPF and this product is one of the best I've found. It's unlike others in that it doesn't feel like other SPF products which can be heavy and leave a white residue. The only other SPF product line I like for my face is Elta MD, but I typically use the SkinMedica TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 every day.
In general, I'm a huge fan of SkinMedica products and also highly recommend the TNS Essential Serum (my can't-live-without-it product!). It's the first product I've ever used that made a truly noticeable difference in my skin tone, texture, and appearance.

Like two other reviewers, I found that the product separated into a clear, watery liquid and a white cream fairly quickly. My aesthetician no longer recommends it - but I didn't ask why when she made the switch to another product. Now I know. The white cream leaves my face chalky looking and since I am a very pale Irish type, it compounds the problem. I find myself with over half a tube that is useless. Sadly, I can't bring myself to recommend it to anyone.
The ingredients separated.

I loved this sunscreen until the ingredients separated. The "water" separated from the rest of the the product and would not mix no matter how much I shook it. I even tried to squirt out as much water as possible but it did not help. I would say it is useless at this point so I stopped using it. I maybe got half the bottle used before I could no longer use it.

Very good product and works best over your moisturizer. A little pricey but this is a quality proven brand.
If skin is dry you might see a little flaking that's why it's best over moisturizer.
great SPF from Skinmedica

This daily moisturizer and SPF works great. It seems the wrinkles and/or dryness are gone and my skin looks great after I apply.
It does moisturize as it says where some SPFs don't. Would buy it again.

I bought this product at my dermatologist's office with the facial cleanser. When I squeezed the tube I get the liquid and then the white cream. I think that it is too expensive and I switch back to my old sunscreen because I don't even like how it feels. The cleanser feels good and I like it but I will never recommend this product to anyone,

I am very impressed with this SPF. I was originally using the SPF 30 daily defense, but was accidentally given this at the spa I went to instead of the 30. I was a little worried at first it might be too heavy or greasy, but it was not at all. It spreads on easy, light weight, not sticky or greasy, and provides a high level of protection by also including a topical vitamin c(sodium ascorbate) in this for enhanced photo protection. I highly recommend this sunscreen. Works great on top of the Skinmedica Dermal Repair moisturizer.
Great new texture and fantastic sun screen
-7/30/2013 4:10:13 AM
I immediately loved this product, I do test almost every sunscreen on the market...this one is super light, for normal to oily skin types excellent (also in humid climate), for dry skin, use something under this screen. At first is is a bit thick and the titanium is a little white/blue, but it is dissolving fast and it is invisible. It is more then a 30+, it is safe and will stay natural all day. Not whitening, nor sticky. No breack out's at all, no red eyes, etc.
Really a winner! By the way, this product was revised, it was not the same in the past. A bit of more Regards, Salvo
PS: the size is perfect for frequent travelers, since you can take it in your hand lugage.

Love this I wear instead of makeup when I am working outside. Stays on and is very protective all day. It absorbs quickly and is not greasy. I have been wearing sunscreens since 1986 and this one is the best!
THE best moisturizer I have ever found!

I have combination skin and have always struggled finding a face moisturizer with SPF that doesn't just sit on my T-Zone and make my pores look larger. This moisturizer is literally the best I have ever found. It is worth every penny. The added TNS is simply a bonus. My skin actually looks gorgeous without makeup now! This product absorbs so quickly and provides a great canvas for makeup or not! I am a product junky and have LaPrairie, Skin Ceuticals, etc., but no more do I have to take chances with products. I have used the TNS recovery serum for years and look younger now than I did 10 years ago. Having the TNS in this product is sheer genius. I recommend this product ...HIGHLY!! You will not be sorry.
