CeraVe

Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50

Item #: 2267198 Size: 2.0 oz

Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe Sunscreen for Face is like no other sunscreen you've ever experienced. Enjoy powerful protection from the same zinc oxide trusted by lifeguards and dermatologists, now in a new lightweight formula that spreads easily and dries with a clear finish.

  • Ceramides help repair and restore the protective skin barrier.
  • Niacinamide helps the skin produce more natural ceramides and fatty acids essential for repairing and restoring the skin barrier. May also reduce skin redness.
  • Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the top layer of the skin.
  • High performance, water resistant sunscreen, suitable for all skin types, CeraVe Sunscreen is perfect for daily use on even the most sensitive skin.

Invisible Zinc technology uses a revolutionary naturally sourced micro-fine zinc oxide to deliver its unique dry, clear finish for powerful protection from the sun's damaging rays.

Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure.

Reapply:
  • After 40 minutes of swimming or sweating
  • Immediately after towel drying
  • At least every 2 hours
  • Children under 6 months: Ask a doctor

  • Effective Protection

    Unfortunately, it leaves a chalky white layer and gives your face a "ghost" like look.

    Used on the lips...

    By looney

    from jersey

    Comments about CeraVe Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50:

    My mother has a lip condition where her lips peel and cannot be in the sun because the condition reacts to sun light. However, my mother has always been one to pick sun over shade and loved the outdoors. She was desperate to find a product to let her live her life in light; the spf chap sticks and lip balms didn't cut it. When we found this our worrying and frantic searching stopped. My mom can now enjoy the outdoors once again as long as she reapplies about every half an hour. The cons (why it lost a star) is that it ends up leaving a white residue all around her mouth and how often she needs to reapply. Other than that it's a great product and it's doing its job and protecting her lips from the sun.

    FYI she only uses it on her lips not as a face or body sunscreen.

    Not good for dry patches

    By Alyssa

    from San Jose, California

    Pros

    • Effective Protection
    • Not Greasy
    • Sweatproof
    • Waterproof

    Cons

    • Doesn't rub in well
    • Drying

    Best Uses

      Comments about CeraVe Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50:

      I was drawn to this product because I liked how the sunscreen had ceramides and niacinamide to help the skin. I thought it would be a good match for my dry, sensitive skin.

      However, the sunscreen emphasized the appearance of all my dry, flaky patches and fine lines. When applied, it made my face look ten times lighter than my neck/chest. It also dries into this chalky texture that I didn't like.

      I need something more moisturizing and natural-looking on my skin. If cerave makes one like that, I'll definitely try it out.

        I used this at a golf out this weekend, and we were in the blazing sun for hours. The Cerave brand was recommended to me by my dermatologist, so I stuck with the brand for sunscreen, and am very happy I did. I also had a hat with brim on, but my face was fully protected throughout the days

            Comments about CeraVe Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50:

            I had to return this product... It was way too chalky and wouldn't absorb into my skin enough to not show whiteness on my face. I also have pretty dry skin on my nose and it clung to the dry patches and made them extra white and flaky. I really like the CeraVe brand and was excited to try this sunscreen on my face but it just didn't work out for me. I was walking around looking like a ghost-face

            Comments about CeraVe Sunscreen Broad Spectrum Face Lotion SPF 50:

            Loved that this was a moisturizer with 50 SPF. The sunscreen applies nicely--white at first, but that blends in. However, I did not like the tacky feeling (that doesn't go away) even after applying makeup on top. It also made my makeup shiny. Won't purchase again. I have used the Moisturizer with 30 SPF. This is not quite as bad.

                Invisible zinc is misleading. This leaves a white layer on my face. No thank you.

                I use this on my neck and a good cc cream on my face. Seems to be doing its job. No scent, which is a plus.

                Make sure to blend well and check the mirror before going out as it can be a bit chalky
