Great everyday face sunscreen

Priced and sized fairly the SkinMedica essential defense is easily absorbed and doesn’t leave a cast.  I can layer make up over it and there is no piling.

Sunscreen for dark skin

Hi I’m on a hunt for a sunscreen that doesn’t leave a cast on my dark skin but that provides good sun protection.  This was one of the ones I have in my rotation.  I do find that if it’s not the white cast it can be oily on my already oily skin.

Great for Sweaty Faces

It's difficult to find a good sunscreen that both lasts and doesn't start sweating into my eyes causing that icky burning sensation. I've been using this one for the past month on my running days and I am pretty satisfied. It's small and compact, making it easy to travel with. Goes on smooth and stays put. No fragrance, and easy to reapply if need be.

SkinMedica Essential Defense Everyday Clear SPF 47

Really like this product. Doesn't cause breakouts. A tad bit thicker than EltaMD Clear SPF 46 but that's not a deal breaker. Good to alternate with.

Excellent

Excellent sunscreen with the incomparable SkinMedica texture. I wasn’t sure if it would be drying - I’d say I’m more combination-dry than oily-combination but it’s fine as long as I use a moisturizer. Great product, goes on well under makeup.

Great Sunscreen

It is similar to EltaMD UV Clear but it doesn’t peel.

Superb

This is a great everyday sunscreen. Goes great under makeup or makeup Free.  I have repurchased it many times.  I like it slightly better than elta md clear , which is the other one I use consistently. They are both really good, this one chemical and Elta md  mineral of course. It goes ion very smooth but not silicone full if that makes sense. Doesn’t sting the eyes.

Greasy, whitecast, and breakouts!

I loved SkinMedica's tinted 32 SPF but I felt that I needed a higher SPF which is why I decided to try this out when I ran out of my 32 SPF. I was hopeful based on glowing reviews, but unfortunately it didn't work out. I have an olive skin tone and this absolutely leaves a whitecast...I have to spend a solid 5 minutes continuously rubbing it into my skin in order to get rid of the whitecast. It's also much greasier than the 32 SFP which is unfortunate because combined with moisturizer, my face just looks SO wet and greasy. I could overlook all those things, but what I couldn't deal with is the millions of closed comedones and whiteheads that it caused in the areas I applied it- my face, neck, and chest. I normally don't have sensitive skin (I took accutane for cystic acne in 2020 and haven't had any issues since) and the acne only developed as soon as I started using this product. I stopped using about a week ago and my acne cleared up almost immediately, Really sad this didn't work out - I wish SkinMedica could make a higher SPF for their tinted sunscreen!

Still using

This is my 3rd one. I like it because it's a pretty clean formula and it blends in well although I do have to rub it in a lot. I can wear it under makeup and it's not too greasy.

Great for breakout-prone skin

I love everything I have purchased from SkinMedica. My husband has acne-prone skin so I ordered this for him. He doesn't like putting products on his face so sunscreen is a battle. This is the first product he has tried that he will actually use regularly. It goes on easily and looks and feels like you don't have anything on your face.
