Physician Insight

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 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring back Ultimate UV Defense! This product is not like the original at all! Too thick and too oily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE BRING BACK THE SPF 30 - Just like the other reviewers, I have been a loyal daily user for many, many years. Got my 20-year-old daughter hooked as well. She lives in Boulder, where sun is definitely an issue - and she loves it. Please bring it back! If not, I will have to switch to another company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ultimate UV Defense Sunscreen I have come to the Dermstore today to order my Skinceuticals supplies of the products I use. However, I see that Ultimate UV Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is no longer available. I began ordering SkinCeuticals when my dermatologist no longer sold the SPF 30. I has purchased the same in SPF 50 from her and it was thick and I did not like the feel at all. I have been ordering the SPF 30 for years now and I LOVE LOVE it. Please, please bring it back! I have one unopened supply, so I will not be ordering any of your sunscreens today, but will hope that when it is almost gone, you will have returned SPF 30!! I would give that 5 stars, but not the 50!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ultimate UV Defense Fan I miss Ultimate UV Defense Sunscreen! Nothing beats it and I wish SkinCeuticals would bring it back. Moving on to another brand for daily sunscreen. Farewell!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad replacement for UV spf 30. C'mon...really? I love the spf UV ultimate. Have worn it for years. You replaced it...why? This product clogs pores, shows zinc oxide - even though it says it doesn't - and is fine for playing golf or skiing but not something one would want to wear everyday.
