Customer Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best SPF I am not usually a fan of most sun protection products; however, this is a star of a product. High sun protection factor, perfect for use on my holiday, and I have even continued using it upon my return home, due its wonderful effect on my skin. It's light when applied to the skin and makes my skin feel moisturised but not greasy. I was a little concerned because it is white in colour, and I have an olive skin tone. However, it absorbed into the skin well, and left no white residue, just a nice dewy glow to my complexion. It made my skin look healthy. In summary, great product and I would highly recommend it. I finally found an SPF that I love.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too little to tell This product lasted only three weeks, so it is impossible to tell if the product is any good. There was clearly a fault with the quantity in the packaging or with the packaging itself - maybe the pump isn't working properly, but it is impossible to break open to find out. Customer service responded negatively on no-reply emails saying that I should reply to the email. When I called them, they were completely disinterested in trying to discuss my issue. I wouldn't normally complain or write a review, but I am incensed. I would NEVER buy a SkinCeuticals product again - what would be the point?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educate, educate, educate One thing i have learnt about skincare is how important it is to use a SPF all year round on my face to help fight signs of ageing. I pair this every day with my Vitamin C serum (C E Ferulic) because i understand that it is adding a extra protective layer to my skin whilst allowing the Vitamin C to fight free radicals that will harm my skin beneath. I was SO surprised at how light weight this product is, it doesn't feel oily on my skin at all like a normal SPF and leaves me with the perfect amount of hydration to apply my foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and light Sun Protection for every day I have been recommended to use a UVA/UVB sun screen with a 50 SPF every day even in the winter months by my beautician. I have therefore gone for the one of the best in the market brands - SkinCeuticals for that. I can now rest assured that my skin at 30 is protected from any photo or sun damage early, so any signs of aging are reduced. I am extremely happy with this light yet moisturizing day cream that I've been using for the last couple of weeks, with a combination of Vit C serum which enhances sun protection even further. A great combination if you want a younger looking skin longer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! A great SPF! I have tried possibly every SPF on the market. I have tried to find an SPF that doesn’t make you break out or add a horrid silvery sheen to my face but I hadn’t had such luck until I tried this. It’s super light weight, acts as a great primer, doesn’t clog pores or make me break out. It is quite Matt too. I’m really pleased with this and will continue to use this going forward. If you do tend to break out or have clogged pores please give this a try! Thank you SC for finally making a product I can use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SPF without the white cast! A lot of SPF 50 sunscreens that I have used in the past for oily skin (both creams and lotions) have always left a white cast/ashy look and felt heavy on the skin. They’ve also been very difficult to apply, don’t rub in easily causing piling which is annoying to say the least. I was sceptical in trying this as I thought it might turn out to be the same as other SPF 50 sunscreens but I was totally wrong. It’s so light, feels weightless on the skin, absorbs easily into the skin and leaves no white cast or gives that ashy look which makes you look like you’re ill. It doesn’t feel greasy or leave my skin looking shiny plus is matt enough without my skin feeling tight. Also it’s moisturising at the same time which is especially great for winter. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, doesn’t clog pores but at the same time minimises them. I love the fact that it also prevents collagen breakdown. All in all this is a great product but it’s a shame that it doesn’t come in a bigger tube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sunscreen to protect your skin! This is the first time I try this sunscreen but it is impressive. It absorbs very quick and do not leave your skin white like other sunscreens usually do. That's why I am addicted to this as it saves me a lot of time in the morning and I won't change to my old sunscreen. With CE Ferulic and this sunscreen I can ensure my skin is perfectly protected. Skinceuticals never makes me disappointed. I am currently using many products from this brand and I am happy that I do it. I don't think I am gonna change to other sunscreen any more. Thanks for such an amazing sunscreen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I requested this because I heard about it from my friend and found a lot of positive reviews about it online. I truly honestly love it. Even after only two days I started noticing some difference. It made my skin so soft and I really felt that it gave me radiance. My friends definitely noticed the difference - more than 10 at my work commented on my skin - they were asking me what I am doing different and I told them that I had been using this item for a wk.
