  • Sheer, tinted sunscreen adapts to most skin tones without a white cast
  • Water resistant for up to 40 minutes
  • Boosts radiance for a more even, luminous complexion
  • Helps boost skin’s natural defenses to environmental stress
  • Paraben-free and fragrance-free; non-comedogenic
  • Ideal for all skin types, even very sensitive skin

How To Use

Shake well before use. Apply sunscreen liberally to the face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and before applying makeup. Reapply sunscreen after 40 minutes of swimming, sweating, immediately after towel drying, and at least every two hours. For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use.

Sun Protection Measures: Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a Broad-Spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
- Limit time in the sun, from 10 am - 2 pm
- Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunglasses
- For children under six months of age, consult a physician before use

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    This breathable, tinted sunscreen is formulated with transparent titanium oxide and zinc oxide (Z-Cote®), the only mineral UV filter shown to protect against the full UVA/UVB spectrum along with translucent color spheres and artemia salina to impart powerful UV protection with a natural radiance. A “shake then apply” dispersal technology helps ensure even distribution of sunscreen ingredients.

Key Ingredients

  • 5% Zinc oxide (Z-Cote®)
  • 6% Titanium dioxide
  • Artemia salina
  • Translucent color spheres

This microfine zinc oxide is a mineral filter that reflects sun rays to provide broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays. The particle size and distribution characteristics spread evenly and provide a non-whitening effect on skin.

Physician Insight

Physician image

I love Physical Fusion because it is so easy to apply and does not clog up the skin or feel and look too heavy. The tint also gives it a nice smoothing effect on the skin. It is so easy to apply, and so effective in protecting the skin from sun damage, that I also use it daily on my three children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisturizes as it protects. This is my second bottle and I would use no other! Protects and moisturizes and I love it I live in the high desert and it gets very hot but I have yet to yet a sunburn on my face using this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful feel, confident coverage Wear this daily, it goes on on top of moisturizer straight after shower. Lightweight flattering. Used their other sunscreens prior to this coming out, still use the sports sunscreen..50spf I think it is when sweating or swimming. This replaces foundation and protects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everyday! This is my go to daily sunscreen! The consistency is light and goes on with a matt finish. Great for putting under your foundation or adding sun protection on top of your foundation during the day. The tint color allows me to reapply easily throughout the day. I’m never left feeling greasy. Perfect for everyday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensitive skin I love this product. It's tinted so it can be used instead of foundation. A lovely, smooth texture, non-irritating, and high SPF. It's perfect and I've been using it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have been using this product for about a year. It is the only facial sunscreen I use now. Works great and doesn't leave an oily residue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Trust This Sunscreen Sunny or cloudy, summer or winter, I don't leave home without this sunscreen. I like the consistency as I find it easy to apply thoroughly, not missing any little spots. I still use a bit of light foundation or tinted moisturizer over it, but find I don't need as much as I would without this tinted layer. Somedays I use no foundation over it at all as all I feel I need is a bit of color on my cheeks and lipstick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My makeup This is the best sunscreen I have ever used! I have worn it for years as my makeup “foundation”. It goes on well and stays for hours even with all my outdoor exercise. My husband had a suspicious lesion on his face when we met. I demanded that he go see his dermatologist and I immediately bought him C E Ferulic and this sunscreen. When he showed his doctor what I had gotten him, she said, “You have a very smart girlfriend.”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Won’t leave home without it. This stuff is amazing. I use it everyday. I once spent the entire day on our boat and I was the only one without a sunburnt face. I use it as a foundation. It’s wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sunscreen ever! At 51 years of age with a very fair complection, I’ve done a lot of damage to my skin. As a past sun and tanning bed worshipper, I’ve dealt with basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma including a significant mohs surgery. So, I’ve tried countless sunscreen products over the past 6 years. I’ve been happy with nothing for my face. Until now. This product goes on great, helps to cover previous sun damage spots, gives my face a nice glow, does not melt off, burn my eyes or feel thick and sticky. Most importantly, it works to prevent sunburn. We recently spent a week in the Florida Keys and it did the job perfectly! I even used it on my legs several times and will continue to do so.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! This is my everyday facial sunscreen. I love that it has a slight tint to it, evens out my skin tone before applying make up. Not too greasy and protects from the sun super well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Sunscreen As a redhead with fair skin, living at a high altitude, I find this product to be fantastic! It has a light tint that never looks heavy, and it doesn't smell like a day at the beach! Yay, the fragrance-free aspect is a big one with me. I will make this my forever sun screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Key to my daily routine I often opt for this tinted sunscreen over other bb creams or light foundations I have. It's so subtle and just enough coverage with UV protection that gives me confidence for the day. I usually get the larger bottle, and it goes a long way for great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lightly Tinted Sunscreen I have been using this product for years and I love it. No other tinted sunscreen I have used can blend with my skin tone and give a lovely luminosity to it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have! My esthetician told me about this product after I had received some facials and she recommended this sunscreen. It has a light tint for a little bit of coverage for when you don’t feel like wearing makeup! I’ve been using this basically every day since for those dark acne spots that are vulnerable to the sun. This product is a must have in your skincare regimen. She told me she had searched far and wide for a good sunscreen and this was the best. I got the small bottle to try it out and the price point was not bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sunscreen on the Market I will never buy any other sunscreen. This product is phenomenal. Not greasy, no smell, does not clog pores. It does make my skin look beautiful and provide amazing protection from the sun. Also, I use it daily and one bottle has lasted me 6 months.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light tint, Easy to apply This has got a very light tint to it, which is very important for my super pale skin. It applies easily, but you definitely need to shake it up good before you try to dole out the foundation. I would recommend using a coaster or counter to drip the foundation onto and then I use my fingers to apply to my face and brush out the foundation from there, that way I feel like I'm losing less of the product to my brush bristles. You can add more to get more coverage, but I feel like the tint is very thin, so it's definitely not going to give you a full coverage foundation look if that's what you are going for. For me, it works perfectly for those days that I'm just going out to do errands, working out in the yard, or traveling to the beach for some relaxation. I don't typically wear this everyday, but for someone with flawless skin (unlike me, with my acne prone face) it would be perfect for everyday wear.
