How To Use

Skinceuticals

Apply sunscreen liberally to the face, neck, and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and before applying makeup.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    High SPF sunscreen can be challenging for combination and oil skin types, creating an oily sheen on skin and clogging pores. Enhanced sebum production from heat exacerbates this effect by stretching pores and increasing surface oil and shine. Formulated with 100% physical filters, this broad spectrum tinted sunscreen minimizes oil and maintains its matte finish even in hot, humid conditions.

    This sunscreen contains oil-absorbing powders to help minimize the appearance of sweat and oil for a long-lasting matte finish.

Key Ingredients

  • 4% transparent micronized zinc oxide (Z-Cote®)
  • 9% titanium dioxide
  • Aerated silica
  • Translucent color spheres

Physician Insight

Physician image

I recommend this to my patients who have an oily skin type or to those who prefer a less sticky, greasy sunscreen. I also recommend this to my patients with discoloration issues because the iron oxides in the tint protect against visible light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for years Love this sunscreen! It's lightweight, doesn't cause me to break out (I have acne prone skin and this is one of my concerns), keeps my face protected all day, and as a bonus, gives my super pale skin a little color! It even helps to cover up some imperfections !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best sunscreen hands down!!! This is the most amazing sunscreen ever and possibly the best skin care product on the market! I recommend it to all of my family and friends! If feels like silk on your skin. It is light-weight, non-greasy, does not worsen acne, and does not have any scent. I use it as my foundation too. One tube will last for 3 months so the price is very reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Texture First time buying the product. I have been using SkinCeuticals for years and always love what I get. I opted for this tinted SPF to wear at work (I work outside about 70% of the time). It gives me the right amount of coverage so my skin tone evens out. Bonus...the SPF is just enough coverage and it is so smooth and perfectly mattifying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grainy texture I was excited to get a matte spf to use before I put my foundation on, but this product has a very grainy texture that doesn’t feel good being rubbed onto my skin. I’ve found that mixing it with a little bit of moisturizer makes it go on better without feeling like sandpaper against my skin. While I really like my other Skinceuticals products, I won’t be buying this specific item again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dislike the new product I tried ordering theUntimate UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 and no one had it or sent me the offering of Physical Fusion SPF 50. I hate the color on my face, the feel of it on my skin and there is a grainy texture. I will definitely not ordering your sunscreen and I will be looking for a new product for another company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too ghostly while i really love the matte finish of this product, i look very pale and wish this product was also made in the tinted formula. i prefer to wear my sunscreens as my foundation and white is not an appealing color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older women I have used this product for a couple of years and I say it is great for older women ( 70) because I use it as a makeup as well as for the sunscreen. Since it has a tint, I find it does fine as light coverage and for older skin, it doesn't look like you have a mask on, but just lightly smoothes out your skin. I wish you would make it with a little more coverage and I wouln't even bother with foundation, ever.
