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 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

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Sheer on Dark Skin I’m pretty disappointed in this sunscreen. I purchased this product specifically to protect my skin following a cosmetic skin procedure. It’s advertised as being transparent, but it leaves a distinctive white film on my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a perfect sunscreen for me! My skin is really pale, and has rosacea + acne prone + super sensitivity to everything basically. I bought the UV Sheer Physical Defense Sunscreen, which was WHITE, so then I decided to try this one. It's the same formula, but with a tint. And, it's perfect. I actually end up mixing the two together to get the perfect tint for my skin, and that's all I need for makeup anymore! I've never gotten burned, never broken out, it doesn't make my skin itch or get oily. AH I'm so happy that after a year and dozens of sunscreens I've found a perfect one!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protects Sensitive Skin I have allergies and very sensitive skin. I have been relying on Sheer Physical UV Defense for years!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Leaves Residue This product moisturizes and does not irritate sensitive, reactive skin, but leaves a residue that is quite annoying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product Product went on sheer but left my face white. Did not blend in as much as I would like.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for All Skin Types Not for dark skin. One word: Ashy. However, the product felt good on my skin so it may workout for lighter/oily skin types.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK for sensitive skin I had been getting rashes and hives with sunblock on my face, even those for sensitive skin, and had stopped using any. I gave this one a try and have used it for a month without any reaction. It's winter and I haven't challenged it in the sun yet, but I feel better with some protection on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Close to Perfect On my caramel complexion, I can't say this is completely sheer, but it's mostly sheer. I've resigned myself to mainly wearing it with foundation; however, it controls oil better than any product I've ever used! For that reason, I decided to keep this, and it's become a holy grail product. I'm usually a total grease ball by 10 am, but with this I barely have to blot my face at all during the day. The fact that it keeps dark spots at bay and controls oil is a huge bonus!!
