Good but not water proof
This would be a great sunscreen but after spending some time outside and sweating it went into my eyes and and stung my eyes. i felt each time sweat rolled into my eyes. It isn't water proof this would be a great product if it was
Always have this on!So important to always wear SPF! This is so good and feels lovely on the skin, always wearing it.
Not for oily skinThe texture of this sunscreen is a little too greasy and thick for me (I have oily skin type), and it would leave a white-cast on the skin. I gave this sunscreen to one of my dry skin friends, and she absolutely loves this product. She puts on make up everyday and sometimes, as she told me, she just used it as a primer and worked like a charm. Anyway, great product, but not for oily skin.
Like this sunscreenI usually use anessa before, this one is thicker but more moisturing, and it doesn't break out my acne prone skin.
Pretty goodNot my favourite but I do use it a lot! Does the job!!
Best Sunscreen for your face for everyday protection!I have used Skin Ceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF30 on my face for the past 5 years, applying everyday prior to makeup to ensure full protection and wouldn't be without it! Smooth to apply and leaves a nourishing lust to the skin. The small amount of zinc provides ultimate protection . Please note to order SPF30 for everyday use not the Sport SPF50 which has a greater amount of zinc and is much thicker to apply being more suited for extreme conditions.
Very impressed with the efficient delivery process, range of products from Adore Beauty and highly recommend both the product and Adore Beauty website! Thankyou
Nice texture but white castThis is a very nice sunscreen! It has a nice texture and is moisturising while not being greasy. However I wouldn't agree that the zinc oxide is "invisible" though, I can definitely still see a cast. For this reason and the price, I wouldn't repurchase.
SunscreenThis is a great sunscreen. I really like how strong it is too.
Incredible ProtectionThis is very different suncream, and I have given it a good recommendation based on the fact that it actually protected my sensitive skin from getting burnt. Usually, my face will burn with 50+ facial suncream on, and sometimes even with surfer's zinc on my nose too - yes, i have super sensitive skin (most likely due to my facial regime to treat acne, as it makes my skin more sensitive to light). The very first day I wore this (to the beach), I accidentally forgot my hat and I was panicking that my skin cells were going into the utmost trauma... BUT! This amazing formula completely saved my skin, even though it's only 30+. The thick, white consistency didn't bother me too much - I was going to the beach so no need for makeup or to look nice. I did think that I would breakout (I have hormonal skin) because of the thickness, however it didn't do this at all. So, I was incredibly chuffed with this product!
Sadly a little too thick for meI am a HUGE fan of SkinCeuticals and was excited to try this sunscreen.
Unfortunately I found it quite thick and it does leave you with a white face, which is hard to balance / cover with makeup. It's a shame though as it smells nice :(
Great coverage, a bit thickI have very fair skin and need a lot of SPF coverage - which this definitely delivers on. The only down side is that it is very thick and white - it can make you a bit ghosty looking.
Thick texture and white sheenThis sunscreen has a thick greasy texture and leaves a white sheen. It feels nourishing so I use it on days where I feel my dry skin needs a little extra TLC but wouldn’t wear it alone, only with makeup otherwise I look translucent.
Best sunscreen on the marketI have been using skinCeuticals Ultimate Defense for about 12 years now.
It is simply the best. I have strayed and tried many others but always come back to this. I can use this running outdoors or on holidays in Bali and guaranteed I will not get burnt.
I find it sits beautifully under your make up giving you a hint of glow effect.
It does not clog pores at all or cause any breakouts.
I like the fact that its a combination chemical/physical sunscreen as well.
expensive,greasy,little white cast,can't be worn alone.I got this by reading the reviews,
i have the brown skin ..looking for a oil free sunscreen under makeup which is not giving white cast ..but this sunscreen is greasy and have little white cast.
I have found another brand sunscreen that is less expensive which is oil free and no white cast...which can be worn alone!!!
this sunscreen can't be worn alone.
Best sunscreen by far!I’ve bought this over the weekend and arrived very fast, so has being 3 days I’ve being using it and I am just in love! I have dry skin and prone for acne breakouts so I’ve had bad times with other sunscreen but not with this one, so far now the skin is nice and smooth. Love the thickness of the product is just the right thickness not too light and not too havy, I will be repurchasing again!
The best sunscreenThis is my go to Sunscreen. I've been using skinceuticals sunscreen for a very long time because they give the best results for prevention of aging.
This sunscreen is super greasy, I have dry skin and it had me shinning (in a bad way). It broke me out and I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.
Pretty goodI have only tried this twice but really really like this. So easy to apply under makeup. Doesn't ruin my look at all.
Great under make upI burn just by looking at the sun so an SPF is a really important product for me all year round.
I have used the SkinCeuiticals SPF off and on over the years, but keep coming back to it as it's the only sunscreen I'm always happy with.
The product feels lightweight and rubs in really well to my face, leaving a nice glow that works well under my makeup (in fact, it works as a really nice primer!)
I have found with other sunscreens they tend to soak up my makeup or cause my skin to look oily and greasy, however I have no problems with SkinCeuticals!
A great product for my sensitive skin.
Fantastic sunscreen!This is a great product. It absorbs completely and doesn't leave a white shine. You can use it under makeup and it doesn't cause makeup to slip. It's non-greasy, and makes your skin look great when wearing it alone. You only need a small, pea-sized amount for face and again for neck, so it lasts ages.
I love the high SPF content. Highly recommended for a daily sunscreen.
Finally, the perfect sunscreenI’ve spent so much time and money trying to find a useable zinc Sunscreen and finally the search ends. It works well over serums and moisturisers. It also works brilliantly under makeup. It doesn’t feel heavy and the zinc doesn’t leave a white cast. I’m also thrilled that I don’t look shiney. I only wish it came in a bigger size.
If you have been like me, and spent every weekend trying various sunscreens, don’t give up. Skinceuticals is brilliant
So glad it's back in stockI'm so glad this product is back in stock. I have been using it for, gosh its that long I can't remember, but over seven years. When I couldn't buy it for awhile, I tried other products, but they were no where near as good. I mix my mineral makeup in a small amount each morning. I never get sunburnt. A fabulous product that I highly recommended.
Good but not water proofThis would be a great sunscreen but after spending some time outside and sweating it went into my eyes and and stung my eyes. i felt each time sweat rolled into my eyes. It isn't water proof this would be a great product if it was
Great product, really works in Northern Australia - I love it!Having had numerous sun cancers removed and a full facial peel, I am very careful with Sun protection, I have been using this product for at least 4 years living in both Northern WA and North QLD and am in the Sun every day but never without my SkinCeuticals UV 30, it really works. My Husband also uses it every day & his skin has certainly improved.
A+ SunscreenI absolutely adore this sunscreen - it's super hydrating like a moisturiser, but doesn't feel at all like a sunscreen (I hate that icky, slimy feeling). This is easily the most luxurious sunscreen product I've used.
I always feel like I'm super protected from the sun wearing this sunscreen, which is important to me as a pale person, and it doesn't break me out.
I use this every day. My red-haired boyfriend gets severe warnings not to touch my precious SkinCeuticals sunscreen. All in all, it's definitely worth it!
The perfect moisturiserI have used SkinCeuticals for a while now. I love that I get SPF30 protection without that horrible sunscreen feeling. It feels everything a moisturiser does and nothing like a suncreen. I wear it every single day. It is more my moisturiser than sunscreen. Even the days I am not wearing makeup, I will have it on as my moisturiser. Love it!
..After previously using a lighter consistancy SPF15 it was a shock to return to a thick physical SPF30 but so worth it. You need to really work this into the skin but the pay off is higher and better sun protection. My skin loves it as well, esp in winter. It soothes & moisturises and provides a great base for make up. Its non-greasey and non-whitening. I love these metal look plastic tubes. they look luxe but are so much easier to use.
great cream with a spf of 30!I have used the skinceuticals spf 20 moisturiser which I really liked when I saw the spf 30 I was excited to purchase this. It is just as good as the spf 20 only it gives a greater sun protection. The cream is thick but I doesnt feels like a sunscreen. Feels good on the skin, and it is easily absorbed.
