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 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I noticed that very many people weren’t happy with this product, but I just wanted to say that it is by far my favorite sunscreen! When I put it on, it feels of quality and it is so amazing it makes my skin feel so smooth! The only issue is that it does take a bit to rub it around the skin as it gets stuck in certain areas but once fully applied it is wonderful! My favorite yet! I also have very sensitive and acne prone skin. This is the only product I’ve ever used to not cause irritation or breakouts! Love this brand please keep!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Olive skin I couldn't fully review the sunscreen. I only used it a couple of times as the tint is very light and will not work on olive skin. It leaves a whitish color on my face, as if using the wrong makeup. not too bad but still noticeable.

I know I'll just get your stock answer about how disappointing it must be to have a product discontinued and that you'll pass it along to your development team ..there is no explanation ..it must have to do with formula rights or something political within your company because literally hundreds of people are begin you to bring this back

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bring Back Ultimate Defense 30 SPF Whyyyyyyy would you discontinue this sunscreen??? I have been using this daily for probably 15 years. Makes no sense.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Please bring back ultimate and daily defense I am disappointed in each of the new sunscreen offerings. They do not compare to the emollient, non-chalky, non-greasy, easy to apply sunscreens you used to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect summer-weight sunscreen I have been using Light Moisture UV Defense for over a year, mainly during spring/summer in place of the Ultimate UV Defense, which I use during fall/winter.It's the final facial product that goes on before makeup - and I use it sparingly as a little goes a long way, on face, ears and neck/front and back. Be careful around eyes - it can creep into them later and sting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it were less shiny I like the way this goes on smoothly and is not too thick. I just wish that it didn't make my skin look so shiny. Other than that, I feel like it protects my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday sunscreen I bought this as an everyday sunscreen and so far it has been great. I have not yet tried it out for the beach but imagine it would hold up well and not be too sticky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the entire family I bought this because my husband has had melanoma and needs to wear a sunscreen daily. I tried many different brands but he likes this and consistently uses this. It is non greasy, moisturizing and protects. My husband even brags about how soft his skin is now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protected me from the sun! After using imiquimod cream for actinic keratosis and getting Fractional C02 laser, I am so very concerned about getting sun on my chest and face. I love how this moisturizer feels and especially how it protects. After being in the sun for some time, there were no bathing suit lines noticeable on my décolletage or redness to my face. I was relieved.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tried because can't get Ultimate UV Def. 30 Texture is very thin, application not smooth for consistent coverage. Tried this because I couldn't get Ultimate UV Defense 30. Will use on extremities to finish the tube but not on my face again. I have sensitive, very fair skin & this just did not provide the protection I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only sunscreen my husband will use! With my husband’s job, he predominately works outside. I wanted him to use sunscreen but we couldn’t find him any that would not make him break out. I tried this on a whim and it’s the only sunscreen that he will use. He likes it and uses it, thus; I’m happy! (I use the tinted sunscreen.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looking for Moisturizer/sunscreen I am not happy with this product. It may be good for an over all sunscreen, however I purchased it to replace ULTIMATE UV DEFENSE which I have been using for YEARS as a daily moisturizer/sunscreen for my face. No one seems to know if ULTIMATE UV DEFENSE has been discontinued or what the problem is. I sent Skin Ceuticals a note on their web site when I found out ULTIMATE UV DEFENSE was not available to see what product might be comparable and received no reply. I purchased Light Moisture UV Defense only because it was the "featured product" and got such good reviews. This product does not work for an all around moisturizer/sunscreen on my face, in fact, it leaves tiny white particles on my skin as I gently massage it into my skin. I worked in Dermatology my entire adult life where I was introduced to the Skin Ceuticals line and have always loved their products. I will continue my search for a good facial moisturizer/sunscreen if ULTIMATE UV DEFENSE is no longer available.
