I love it. Perfect gift for my girlfriend. She uses it everyday.

I will use this one .....
June 30, 2015

I know you are supposed to use sunscreen on a daily basis but have had a hard time finding one to use on my oily skin - so didnt. Depended on my face powder to provide the protection and knew it wasnt enough. I recently started using the Retinol 1.0, so knew I needed to change my ways. After a consultation with a SkinMedica rep, I purchased this sunscreen and this is something I can use. As it is a physical sunscreen I was advised to "pat" it on and not rub it in. I will apply it after all my serums and let it "set" for a few minutes to allow the product to absorb. Before I apply my makeup I will use a blotting tissue to remove any oily residue. Works beautifully. If I am not going to apply any foundation, I just leave it as is. My complexion does not get any oilier than it normally would. I would recommend this to anyone that has oilier skin and hesitant to use a sunscreen.

Fabulous Sunscreen!
May 31, 2015

I have struggled for years to find a sunscreen that doesnt break me out. This is it! I love that it is broad-spectrum, doesnt clog pores, and also has some nice ingredients that benefit the overall health of the skin. Doesnt burn if it gets around my eyes. It is a bit thick and hard to spread, but it sinks in very fast and doesnt leave a white cast (unlike most sunscreens that contain zinc oxide). Great value for a huge amount of product. Goes great with my moisturizer (also SkinMedica).

Feels great on!
December 15, 2014

I always purchase a sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium which I have read should be main ingredients in sunscreen. I have purchased this sunscreen numerous times and very happy with the results. It goes on great and is easily absorbed into skin. Makeup goes on without rolling which is a problem I have experienced with other brands. Happy with results.

love this stuff
December 15, 2014

Im starting to really like this brand. Ive been using another similar brand (skinceuticals) and have recently switched to skin medica. This one goes on lighter and smells good, doesnt really have that suncreen smell. Does not leave my face white and its a fairly big bottle when compared to other similar brands. I will be sticking to this from now on.

Skinmedica sunscreen spf30+
November 11, 2014

I just purchased skinmedica sunscreen for the benefits of the zinc oxide and titanium which are supposed to give the best sun protection. So far I think it is the sunscreen for me. It is non-greasy and gives my skin a soft and velvety appearance. I love it and will definitely buy it again.

I have used Obagi sunscreen for years but after trying this in an after peel care kit I was hooked. It is smooth, silky and leaves just a hint of sheen. :)

This SPF takes a bit to fully rub in, but when it does, its has a beautiful finish. Works great under makeup.

Best Sunscreen for faces.
December 28, 2013

I love this sunscreen. I recently had surgery on my face and my plastic surgeon recommended it. Goes on smooth, non greasy and very light and sheer. Love it!

December 22, 2013

I love this product. It goes on your facial skin like silk. It is so smooth and so light. It almost feels like theres nothing on your face, but the protection is there. Im excited everyday just waiting to put it on because it feels so freaking good.

The Perfect Sunsreen
October 31, 2013

SkinMedica included an incredible sample collection of this product, along with their other most popular items when I purchased my TNS Essential Serum a few months ago and I decided to try it after realizing that the great one I had used for years was no longer working for me. Immediately, I noticed that it was not competing with my serum and moisturizer and my mineral foundation looked great all day. It is so nice not to have that afternoon oil buildup on the chin area. I would love for SkinMedica to repeat this offer again since the samples were large enough for a 2 -3+ week trial--the best way to really see if a product is going to work for you.

Heavy Sunscreen
September 17, 2013

I believe this works well in blocking the sun as it should. I dont really love the texture of it, it is a heavy lotion that needs to be rubbed in very well and makes your skin look white for a while after applying. I also find that it dries my face out if I use it there.

Great sun screen
September 16, 2013

I used this sun screen for a ling time and would not change. Besides being light it goes a long way. Love it.

Another wonderful SkinMedica product
March 28, 2013

Wouldnt go in the sun without it

ultra light sun screen-perfect for face
August 13, 2012

This product is very light, non oily, and fragrance free which I like, especially for my face. I use daily and it works well under my foundation. It leaves the face feeling smooth and fressh. I higly recommend trying this quality product.

Excellent Product
June 20, 2012

So glad I had the opportunity to try this product...creamy and non greasy. Will continue to purchase!

Effective yet gentle
May 24, 2012

My dermatologist recommended the Physical Defense sunscreen. I had used others but this seems to be a better sunblock and yet is gentle on my skin.

Disappearing Protection!
May 01, 2012

Was skeptical after the first application, and was afraid I would look like a lifeguard's nose, but it was absorbed and disappeared withour feeling heavy or sticky. I'm sending some to my granddaughter at camp .

very nice texture
April 10, 2012

Fantastic product! It has a smooth texture, and goes on smoothly. Great coverage without having to use a bunch of product. My face doesn't feel like I'm wearing a thick mask, it's still breathable.

Perfect Sunscreen
February 14, 2012

This sunscreen is the best that I have used. It is not heavy or greasy. You can wear it under makeup. No allergic reaction to the ingredients in this sunscreen. Love this product!
