Best Sunscreen I have ever used


This product was recommended to me for daily use under make-up by my dermatologist and I absolutely love it. My skin is fair and sun sensitive and also breaks out easily and most sunscreens are just too much, but not this one. It is light, not greasy in the slightest. In fact, it is so light i have to wear a moisturizer over it (I live in Colorado and it is extremely dry here). My skin has never broken out from this product. The only negative- I think its a little on the pricey side, but a little goes a long way and one tube lasted me six months using in the mornings. I will probably use this one forever.

Too thick


I bought this as a part of the Obagi regimen because it was recommended for daily use while on the regimen. This was way too thick to wear under makeup. This would be fine for skiing or the beach.

The Best!


I have very light, sensitive skin. This sunscreen works well and has a great texture (not too heavy/greasy). I've tried newer and more expensive sunscreens, but keep coming back to this favorite.

pretty terrific


have tried all the high end sunscreens and this seems to be the best, No breakouts, minimal shine and whiteness (though all the sunscreens over SPF 15 have some shine and whiteness) and best of all, GOOD-for-you sun protection- no funky chemicals but rather oxide-based. Not a moisturizer though- none really are- you have to do that separately.

Great Product!


I have combination skin that breaks out from too much sun exposure and oil. I have never used suncreen in my 37 years of life due to the fear of my skin breaking out. I was given a sample of this at one of my many hopeful appts. trying for perfect skin. I did not use it until about two months after I had received it. Well,let me tell you......not greasy, no perfumes, dries quickly, no sun and best of all, no breakouts. This product is an answer to my prayers.

Recommend it!


I really like this one. I use it OVER the Sunfader - that way I get the bleaching effect of the Sunfader plus the extra protection of this gentle SPF 35. Don't wear much makeup anymore (because of this wonderful line!) but when I do, makeup goes on flawlessly.

Highly Recommended


Great product! I bought this product at my dermatologist office before my week at the beach and got absolutely no sun on my face or neck. I also noticed that my acne clears when I am using it.

Totally Worth It


I have wasted so much money on sunscreens that I could use once, because break out in acne, or have an allergic reaction, or sunburn (even though I was wearing the sunscreen). So I was pretty skeptical when my dermatologist suggested that I dish out $30 for a sunscreen that I hadn't even tested. But this stuff is COMPLETELY, TOTALLY, ABSOLUTELY worth it! I am 21 years old and I have always had very sensitive, fair skin, but in the last year, I have suddenly developed adult acne. Since I sunburn easily, I must wear at least spf 30, especially on my face, but every sunscreen I had tried would either irritate my skin, resulting in rashes or acne, or it would be inneffective and I would sunburn. But this product oes not irritate my skin, it does not sting my face upon application (as many higher-SPF sunscreens do, I do not sunburn, and, not only does it not cause acne, my skin has actually cleared up as I've been using it. For anyone with sensitive skin, this product is worth it; it really works.

Happy Obaji User


I have been using Obaji products since October of last year, so it has been almost nine months now. I am so impressed with the product. I have been getting microdermabrasion from my intern doctor as well. I have also used the skin protector SPF 35 and will not go outside without it. I also do not break out with this product.

My face and neck was protected while my body sunburned.


Because I use facial sunscreen daily I was recently saved from a damaging and potentially painful sunburn on my face and neck. I just started using the OBAGI sunscreen and am very pleased with it. Unlike my face & neck, unfortunately, the rest of my body did not fair so well. I chose not not wear sunscreen as I sat by the pool from 1-3pm. My logic was it was cloudy and later in the day. Hopefully I won't make the same mistake again.
