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 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!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn’t work! Bought a new bottle of this to go on holiday with- I have a medium complexion and rarely burn. Put this sunscreen on and burnt so badly- applied a good layer, topped up every two hours - still burnt! Not sure if the product I received was faulty but it had very little/no protection. Used factor 15 on my neck chest etc from a different brand- no issues.. Almost gives a sheeny appearance which I think made this problem worse, seriously disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I love this sunscreen. I have been using it for five years and have never had a problem with it “pilling”. I have vitiligo so it is imperative I am never without sun protection. I am thankful every day that my dermatologist recommended Skinceuticals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaves little white flakes all over the skin I am not happy with this sunscreen. It not only leaves a white caste, it does not blend into the skin well. Leaves little white particles all over the face. Looks terrible. I have been using this following the hydrating B5 gel. Customer service is not much help either. They just tell you to buy a different skinceuticals sunscreen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful white cast “sheer” is a bold-faced lie. this stuff turns you as white as a ghost and is totally unwearable in public. the kicker? you spend close to 70 bucks for an average-sized bottle. insulting really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My esthetician recommended this product. It has no endocrine disrupting chemicals and is the only sunscreen that doesn’t cause acne on my skin. The neutral tint acts like a foundation as well as protecting my skin from UV rays. I have been using this for 2 years and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sunblock! I have been using this product for over 6 months and I love it. This product, along with blemish and age defense, will be part of the products I will always buy. When you try the sunscreen for the first time you can tell it is a high quality product. Love it!
