    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!

              I really wanted to like this but it was not effective for what I wanted it for. I have very dry skin and it dried me out worse. The price is really quite awful and I saw no effect from use. The only pro I can give it is it does have a blurring affect.

              Thick, fluffy consistency, little goes along way. It smells great, like skittles. Made my skin velvety soft and it helped blur imperfections. Sadly, it made dry patches even worse (chin area, sides of my nose). Another issue was formula's pink tint. It doesn't dry clear and leaves white cast behind like sunscreens. I have medium tan complexion, so it was very noticeable on me. I returned product. Would buy again if formula improved because Algenist makes great products.
