Physician Insight

Physician image

This universal SPF is perfect for all of my patients - its weightless formula thoroughly moisturizes as it protects and leaves skin comfortable. While daily sunscreen usage is necessary to protect their skin from UV-induced aging and discoloration, many patients claim that sunscreen formulas feel greasy and are difficult to rub in. This new SPF is a game changer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good substitute for the Ultimate UV Defense Unfortunately, every Skinceuticals sunscreen I've used and loved ends up getting discontinued. I was looking for a substitute for the Ultimate UV Defense Broad Spectrum SFP30 sunscreen and decided to try this one. It smells medicinal and is greasy. I'm so bummed! I will have to continue my search for a new sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for me! I was frustrated tk read all of these negative reviews for this product (plus they all sound like they are written by the same person). I have fair, normal skin and this works great! It rubs in well and I feel it keeps me protected. I use vitamin c serum so, spf 50 is necessary and welcomed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR, SKIN UNHEALTHY REPLACEMENT: I see in these numerous reviews, your product that took the place of the better ULTIMATE UV DEFENSE #30, is no longer available. Seems it's "replacement" is NOT liked! The lighter version has all the skin absorbing bad chemicals doctors say NOT to use, it's not a mineral product. I will NOT even try it and look elsewhere for a healthier mineral sunscreen. With all the complaints AGAINST this product, you don't seem to care..WHY is the better one no longer available?? What was the REAL issue with it? Too bad, I don't want the replacement, I will go elsewhere. I want what I want, not your skin unhealthy replacement.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck. 2.7 % average rating says it all. You should really bring back the ultimate uv 30. The only skinceuticle sunscreen with decent reviews. No need to send the scripted response.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oily, thick, white cast and Pasty Many products I purchased from Skinceuticals are amazing except this sunscreen. So thick, oily, slight white cast and it is pasty like rubbing wet powder on face. If I massage or touch my face, i can see a little white flakes pill off on my skin, on my hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would buy again I originally bought SkinCeuticals the other sunscreen and did not like it so I ordered this one. Based on the reviews for this one, I did not have much hope I would like it either. I was actually surprised as this one is a decent sunscreen. I have only used it on my face and neck. It doesn't leave a white cast on my face or transfer and doesn't feel like I have any on. You do have to rub it in good. Overall I'm completely pleased with it and will be purchasing again.
