Being a fair-skinned gal, I was looking for a great sunscreen with a higher SPF that would work well with my makeup, not make me oily, and that is long-lasting. This sunscreen has not disappointed at all. I wear it over my moisturizer and my makeup glides on beautifully. I feel extra protected and will definitely be repurchasing this sunscreen again.

Great product. Great protection and I don't reapply if not swimming.
Nice smooth consistency without frying.
I originally was referred to this product by a dermatology office. I like that it is water resistant, and I trust the effectiveness of the product to protect my skin. It goes on white and creamy, but like the other SkinMedica products that I use, this sunscreen absorbs into the skin nicely and allows for makeup to be put over it easily.
DOES NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO VIVITE....EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING
I have used Vivite Aftercare SPF 30 for several years.....before that it was MD Forte Aftercare SPF 30 and had used that since the year 2000. The products were the same, just had changed names.......they were fantastic. They had just the right mixture of ingredients to promote great SPF protection, moisture that lasted all day without being greasy, left a beautiful matte finish that worked great for a makeup primer and really helped my skin stay wrinkle free. They were great to use after laser resurfacing and chemical peels, the zinc content and the ingredient mix was very healing. I cannot say enough good things about Vivite/MD Forte. This SkinMedica product does not come close to Vivite. It does not moisturize, does not have the same ingredients, does not leave the matte finish, and makeup does not apply well over this product....I am finding it is very drying to my skin and dont see how it will fight wrinkles. Shame on SkinMedica for not reproducing the Vivite Aftercare Environmental Protection Cream and trying to pass this product off as the same or better. They have made a huge mistake by discontinuing the Vivite Aftercare product. I will not be purchasing this new product again or do I suggest purchasing it. A huge dissapointment! I hope SkinMedica will wise-up and add the Aftercare Environmental Protection Cream into their line!!!!

I have used quite a few various sunscreens since I have developed hyper pigmentation following fraxel laser a few years ago on my face. I find that the ones I have used have truly been pretty good but when I tried this one, I was utterly amazed. First of all, it went on so smoothly and I was able to apply makeup very easily afterwards. I really do not sit in the sun anymore, but I do apply sunscreen daily, especially during the summer when I am outside and this is just phenomenal. I will always use this one on my face, chest, and hands and arms since that would be the only part of body ever exposed directly to the sun. WONDERFUL PRODUCT!!
Lasts all day and works like a champ
I just came back from a week long cruise to Mexico.. Was in the sun all day every day and wanted full protection for my face, neck and chest... I only applied it once in am and it worked crazy great.. It comes on white but blends with just a little effort. It is not greasy at all. It is now my sunscreen of choice for me and my fair skinned freckled 15 year old daughter .... Maria from Denver
One of my favorite sunscreens
This sunscreen feels so good going on the skin. It is oil-free and fragrance-free and unlike many sunscreens this one does not cause any irritation to my skin. It takes a few minutes to soak in, but after that I can easily apply make-up over it. Due to the price, I use it only on my face, neck and chest.
It goes on smooth with no build up or extra layer on my face! I get very dark spots if I am out in the sun, by using this sunscreen daily, I have been able to stay clear of the dark mask! No odor works great.
sunshine is not the enemy
I have purchased a lot of sunscrean this summer. each year it seems there is more concern over the "bad rays". I am very happy with tis sunscreen and knowing it is supported by the skin cancer people is a great feeling.
