Product Overview

Shiny skin is history with the help of this oil-free sunscreen.

Oil-free products are a must for any skin care routine. EltaMD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 Oil-Free is a lightweight sun protection product that is ideal for a shiny complexion. This physical sunscreen protects the complexion against both UVA and UVB rays without leaving the skin feeling greasy. Using this oil-free sunscreen daily will defend the complexion against signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots. The fast-absorbing formula applies easily underneath makeup and won’t cause your cosmetics to rub off or streak. Add this product to your routine for a shine-free look.

EltaMD UV Shield deflects harmful UV rays.

EltaMD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 Oil-Free contains 9% zinc oxide to protect the complexion. This form of zinc oxide is micronized and extremely small so it is less likely to irritate the skin. It is also less likely to leave a white mask appearance after applying this product. This sunscreen is paraben-free, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic so it is safe for most skin types including sensitive. The oil-free formula keeps your complexion looking matte and the powerful ingredients prevent sun-damaged skin. Maintain youthful skin for as long as possible with this sun protection product.

EltaMD intentionally overfills items with airless pumps in anticipation that a small amount may leak in transit, especially in hot weather and/or during air travel. They do this in order to make sure that the entire amount of product is in the jar, even if a small amount leaks. For this reason, these items actually contain slightly more product than advertised before they are shipped to ensure the customer still receives an item with the appropriate amount of product.

Terribly drying!

I have oily skin. After a week of using this sunscreen, my skin is dry and flaky! It's really a shame because EltaMD sunscreens are spoken highly of, especially by dermatologists.

Like It

This is a good sunscreen for oily skin. Leaves a nice matte look with no white tint on the face. Also seems to keep my oiliness down throughout the day. However, I think it was the cause of a few pimples that popped up as I was using this. Once I stopped using it, pimples cleared up, but this could be from the prescription items I use on my face from my dermatologist. I am currently using a different sunscreen, but I am open with maybe trying this again in the future.

Great coverage and value

This works great under my foundation. I use KGD aqua foundation and love it, but if it layers on top of a greasy SPF, it breaks down badly. The EltaMD goes on nicely over my other skincare products, blends into my skin and doesn't cause my foundation or powder to separate or cake in weird places. It seems to protect against the sun well. I am an airline pilot and am exposed to much higher UV levels at altitude. My skin hasn't reacted negatively and application lasts. I have fair skin with some freckles and some sun damage. There is no white/ashy cast with this. I think this is good value for size and coverage. It doesn't leave residue on my clothes either.

Very good texture, sinks in easily

I got the larger airless pump, and it's certainly a hefty thing. For use on just your face, I probably would have gone with the smaller tube, but you really get a lot of product and you'll be set for months :) The texture is a nice light-to-medium texture and sinks in very easily. I would say it's cosmetically elegant.

Best sunscreen ever!

My dermatologist recommended this to me after removing a small skin cancer from my face four years ago. So I bought a tube to try and loved it from the very first day! It feels light on my skin, thoroughly blends into my face and does not leave it feeling greasy like so many sunscreens can. My makeup glides over it and on days when I don't wear makeup, you can't tell that I have anything on my skin. Best of all, my nose and cheeks do not turn pink from the sun. I have recommended it to other friends and family members, and everyone I have told about it has made the switch–happily. I now consider this EltaMD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 Oil-Free an essential part of my skin care.

Great spf

I love the Elat MD SPF 45. It protects my skin, doesn’t make me break out, and plays well under all my makeup.

Light SPF

This product feels weightless and leaves no shine. The only con is I don't love the bottle. It's long and big for travel purposes. Also the product leaves a slight white cast. I'm pale so it isn't overt but is still there. Its a good SPF overall. It protects and isn't greasy.

My favorite SPF lotion

I wear SPF daily usually instead of a regular moisturizer. I needed something lightweight, easy to spread, non-drying, non-shiny, and this one fulfills all my requirements perfectly. Love it.

Love EltaMD!

EltaMD is my go-to sunscreen. I like the lightness of this sunscreen, especially during the hot summer months.The oil-free formula helps me stay sun safe but doesn't make me look greasy. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for quality and comfort.

Another EltaMD Product

I am a fan of all the EltaMD skin products, so I thought I would give the Broad-Spectrum SPF 45 a try as it was described as oil-free and lightweight. It comes out a white color, but it is absorbed by the skin and becomes clear. I love that it is clear and is easily absorbed by the skin, so you can then put your own foundation over it with no concerns. It gives you great protection from the sun as it has transparent zinc oxide as its main ingredient. I highly recommend this product.

After you apply it, you feel nothing. It is not sticky and goes on smoothly with foundation. The price is so good too.

A bit drying.

This is a good moisturizer if you have oily skin. I felt it was drying on my dry skin, so I needed to layer on top of a moisturizer. It does protect well.

My skin is oily, and I tried many sun block products through my life. This brand is one of the best!
