    Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

    I have recently tried several Algenist products and love them all. I have combination skin, with noticeable pores around the nose and cheeks, but I also have fine lines. This product really does make the pores and fine lines less noticeable. The only downside is that it is not as hydrating as it could be. I apply after taking as shower, and it is usually about 20 minutes before I start putting makeup on. I typically have to reapply it, but once it has absorbed, I put a primer on (I find this product needs a primer over it), let that set, then my makeup sets beautifully. Their eye balm and eye serum are awesome, too!

      my favorite moisturizer

      Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

      I've tried many moisturizers and they all seemed to start promoting, but falls short in one way or another (i.e. not mattifying enlighten, not enough SPF, blah blah blah). However, when I found this product and tried it for the first time, I knew I would it was a keeper. This product has everything I need in a moisturizer: anti-aging, SPF, and blurring/mattifying. But the only down side is its price. I thank for the Ulta coupons!!!!!

        I love this moisturizer! You can almost use it as a substitute for primer. It smooths out pores and fine lines like no other.

          This moisturizer is like a 5-in-1 product: anti-aging, sunscreen, foundation, primer, and mattifying agent. I love it. I have combo skin and this doesn't make my oily zones feel extra oily.

              I have used several Algenist products in the past which have been solid, performance driven options. This cream, however, is awful. It's thick/hard to spread and cakey looking. Threw the rest of the cream in the trash - couldn't believe it was such a disappointment!

                Received this product as a sample and fell in love. The mousse like consistency absorbs effortlessly and leaves a matte like finish. The blurring effect minimizes fine lines and pores so I can wear this alone or under my foundation without having to use a primer. The only downside is the price. Quite pricey but worth it.

                  Amazing

                  By Jay

                  from California

                  Comments about Algenist Sublime Defense Moisturizer SPF 30:

                  I have oily skin and have searched high and low for a moisturizer that gives my skin the nourishment it needs without leaving any greasy residue and this does just that! It has a somewhat thick, mouse-like consistency so you don't need a lot of product, along with a distinct smell which may be overwhelming for some people, though it does go away shortly after being applied. It's great to use as a primer under makeup because it fills in pores and fine lines. The reason this is one of my favorite moisturizers however, is because it keeps my face matte all day, with or without makeup, and for someone with oily skin, that can be difficult to achieve. This is a great product overall, but I would not recommend it to people with dry skin, as it may dry them out even more. However, if you have oily / combination skin, you'll love it!
