Perricone MD's Photo Plasma Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is a uniquely formulated moisturizer with SPF 30 that delivers powerful anti-aging benefits while efficiently and effectively protecting against damaging UVA and UVB sun rays. Protection against sun & other environmental aggressors. Formulated with powerful anti-aging benefits and non-chemical UVA and UVB mineral sunscreens, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. Derives its natural color from Astaxanthin, a rich antioxidant known for its photo protective powers. Protects against the 10 most common skin aggressors: sun exposure, dehydration, pollution, harsh wind, excessive heat, extreme cold, heavy metals, smoke, stress and chemical irritants.

Formulated with Vitamin C Ester and Alpha Lipoic Acid to help brighten the skin and smooth surface imperfections. Luxurious in texture and oil-free anti-aging moisturizer with SPF 30. Creates an invisible shield between the skin and the environment, protecting natural aggressors and guarding against age accelerating UVA and UVB damage. Delivers essential hydration and glides on skin smoothly and evenly, leaving it soft and radiant looking. No tackiness or heaviness of more traditional moisturizers with SPF.
Dr. Perricone recommends applying in the daytime as a final and finishing step to any skincare regimen.

    This is my favorite daily SPF moisturizer, hands down. It is the only chemical-free sunscreen that doesn't give me a white cast. The texture is so creamy and whipped, it's luxurious to put on my skin. I've tried other non-chemical moisturizing sunscreen and keep coming back to this one. It's worth every penny!

        I have been using this product since Dec of 2016. It is wonderful! My skin is smooth and silky. Great sunscreen protection, since I have fair skin and freckles.

          I am 50 and have have a skin condition that causes small circular patches of dry skin that crack and bleed on my face. My first spots appeared after the birth of my first child when I was 21. I have used prescription creams and steroids with some relief. Until now, I have never found anything that worked well without side effects. I have not had a single dry spot since I've started using this product. NOT ONE! I am not sure what is different than the hundreds of others I have tried but I will never use anything else! My skin looks and feels fantastic! My only complaint is that I did not find it sooner!!

            I love this product. Unlike many other moisturizers with SPF(i.e. Kate Somerville SPF 50 moisturizer), this product is light enough that it won't leave any white traces or it won't slough off from you skin.

            However, like all the other products from Perricone MD, this moisturizer needs better packaging! I never dropped the jar or traveled with it, but the lid somehow broke (the plastic cracked open). It looks like MANY of perricone md's products are contained in extremely fragile and poor packaging. I've used many products that are contained in glassware such as Darphin, and never had any problems. It looks like Perricone MD uses cheap plastic and glassware for their containers, and due to this reason, items easily break or pumps don't work properly. It's too bad because their products itself are great! Please pay more attention for packaging going forward. Because of this broken container, I had to scoop out all the moisturizers and put it in an empty Darphin glass container.

              I have been loyal to this as my daily SPF for years. I lived in SoCal and needed high potency yet non greasy moisturizer for daily protection. This is hands down the best for my skin. It's pricey but a little goes a long way and I'll gladly pay now to prevent future sun damage. Don't change a thing, this is the best!

                  This is the holy grail for my neck during the day. Everywhere my skin can't take a regular sunblock, I use this instead, and I can skip the moisturizer because it is very moisturizing. I would describe the texture as a calming protective barrier. It is everything I have ever wanted in a sensitive skin moosturizer for the daytime. I thought it was being discontinued and I was so upset. I'll never stop using this. As I age, I will layer more products, but this one is a keeper. The Astaxanthin completely eliminated the problem of redness, blotchy areas and parched patches on my extremely delicate skin. I even started using that antioxidant in other products because of this discovery. This moisturizer is creamy and soothing. It never ever stings, even after aggressive microdermabrasion. It's like a shield for the skin, and it has never caused a pimple. I have had severe acne before and I'm still very break out prone, and it's truly not a pore clogger, even for being so viscous and protective. A+++
